Arising, Abiding, Dissolving-The Roots of Vinyasa Yoga

YB Yoga 200 hr. Teacher Training Maggie Kortchmar

YB Yoga's first 200 Hr. TT module open to all students interested in learning the way of teaching and practicing confidence, clarity and compassion in Vinyasa Yoga. Flow yoga is commonly misunderstood as a modern way to get fit with aggressive movements, breathing and speed.

  • Is this really necessary?
  • Are we missing out on the benefits of calm mind and strong body working together?

Learn the roots of vinyasa yoga, where it came from, how it works, and the fullness of studying and practicing original yoga. We will work with a practical template that you can refer to and count on to create and teach joyful alignment driven yoga asana. We will cultivate the field for meditation and the study of all the 8 limbs of yoga.

Should you decide to join YB Yoga's TT after the module you will receive credit for your attendance. $165 Taught by Maggie Kortchmar

Partner Workshop: Exchange a Thai Massage With Your Date (or Friend)

This workshop is happening twice at different locations:

·         Sunday, February 11, 3-5pm at Zona Rosa location

Exchange a full-body Thai massage with your sweety, friend or family member- no prior experience necessary! You and your partner will take turns being the giver and the receiver, while massage therapist / yoga teacher Leslie Blodgett provides a model and easy instructions.

 

Thai massage is done on a mat on the floor using ancient concepts similar to yoga. Dress comfortably in sweatpants and T-shirt or yoga clothes. Bring your yoga mat (or borrow the ones at the studio) and a towel.

 

The giver takes the receiver through the body's full range of motion in a methodology that renews energy flow and holistic health. That's why some people call it the lazy man's yoga!

 

You will leave feeling refreshed and confident to use your new skills at home.
