Celebration of Light having Victory over Darkness

A crossing of paths between our two evening classes.  Come share in refreshments as we meet our fellow practitioners and partake of the joy of sharing in the gift of life.  Though obstacles will show up unexpectedly and we share in carrying one another's burdens; we pause to commemorate the wonder of how light invariably shines through all circumstances and offers us hope and new beginnings.

How to Teach Privates

How to Teach Privates

In this workshop teachers will learn how to plan and teach a private yoga session. Private yoga sessions are an invaluable experience for students to deepen their practice and receive important feedback. Teachers are able to apply their specialties and use their knowledge to a fuller extent than a class setting. The central focus is to understand correct structuring of privates and how teaching a private differs from a class setting. Participants will have the opportunity to create a partial private, demonstrate and receive feedback in class. The goal is for every teacher to walk away feeling confident working one on one with a student.

Master Class w/Jeannine B.C: New Beginnings

The theme of this class will revolve around new beginnings. There will be something for everyone.  We will need to be open to see our own blockages and  judgments and then the potential of having each challenge uncover the potential for growth through healing that comes from being empowered to see. And then from seeing, we breathe, and then from breathing we are able to behold the “Source” of breath … the Divine. While engaging in this union, we come away with clarity, love and deepened peace.”
