Chances are, as a teacher, there are spots in your body right now that don’t feel as good as they should. Sometimes that makes you feel like a fraud. You’ve also noticed the same thing happening to your students. A hamstring strain here, some wrist pain there. But until now, you thought that was just par for the course.  This 20-hour Course is designed to make your classes safer and to give you the knowledge you need to prevent injury from happening on your watch.

Wheel is one of yoga's quintessential backbends. It provides a gateway to other advanced backbends, but more importantly, even if you never get there, the prep work has amazing benefits on its own!

Whether you take this pose to its full expression, or continue to build a solid foundation, you will stand a little taller, feel a little freer, and move about the world with a more open heart.

Meditation is the only tool for us to quiet our minds that is effective and long term. When we stop looking outside of ourselves to find inner peace, when we stop thinking its going to be the next relationship, the next job, the next purchase that's going to make us happy, we start looking within to seek solace.

Spend this weekend learning not to try to silence a mind that wants to go a hundred different directions simultaneously, but rather how to sit with and not attach to this chaos. Meditation opens us to each and every moment of our life.

Whether you're new to yoga or you've been on the mat for years, breaking down the poses into all of their minor elements can deepen your practice and improve your experience. We'll learn proper breath, where your limbs should go, how to "float" and more!

Many yoga classes will begin with a series of sun salutations which are a sequence of movements that serve to strengthen and lengthen most muscles in the body, while also helping to sync your movement and breath to calm your nervous system.
