Yoga Nidra with Jen

Screen Shot 2017-08-01 at 8.33.21 AM.png

Have you ever been in savasana at the end of class, and just when you feel yourself start to relax, your teacher starts to pull you out of it? Have you wondered what a longer, deeper period of relaxation would feel like? Then a yoga nidra might be what you are looking for.

Yoga nidra is translated as "yogic sleep," but this method is not really about getting in a good nap in. It's a meditation guided by the teacher's voice while you identify sensations throughout your body and focus on your breath. You  remain in a state of relaxed awareness so that you may release deeply held tensions.

Come in and experience a state of relaxation you may have never achieved before.

$5 for this 30 minute mini workshop

200 Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training

This is a Teacher Training for those serious about becoming an amazing teacher.

Upon completing our training you will be confidant enough to get up in front of a class and guide them through their experience and share parts of yours . You will teach segments of a class every single day, several times a day. We use a hands on approach to teaching and you will be coached not only by Theresa and Amanda but by your peers and other guest teachers.

During our training you will learn something new about yourself daily. You will learn something new about yoga and it's eight limbs daily. You will learn how important your community is every moment of your training. You will evolve not only as a yoga teacher but as a human being as well.

 

Before you leave our training you will have the skills and confidence of an experienced teacher. How?

Move your body daily. The practice will become a part of you.

Learn how to teach by teaching during live classes.

Practice presence and mindfulness.

Discussion about the principles of yoga and whatever else comes up.

An in-depth look at anatomy and how to manipulate the bones and muscles to move deeper into a pose. We'll also take a closer look at the fundamental poses of the vinyasa practice.

You will present a workshop and teach a full one hour class by the end of your training.

Learn the business of yoga from people who have been there, done that.

And MUCH MORE EVERY DAY!

You will become the teacher YOU are meant to be, NOT the teacher we think you should be.

Students will be introduced to a variety of exercises, poses and flows using the Yoga Wheel to develop the core and build stability, as well as challenge balance and enhance flexibility.

In this fun-filled workshop we will look at how to challenge new muscles in familiar asanas. For example back bending postures can be extremely difficult, but the yoga wheel makes a back bending and hip opening practice playful, easy and effortless!

All levels are welcome – we recommend a regular yoga practice for at least 6 months

What you'll need:

A Yoga Wheel! You can get one on Amazon for as little as $15 all the way up to $50. Most people can use a 12 inch wheel.

Mat

Towel

Water
