FitFlow Yoga Sculpt

 

 I developed this class for the fitness centre patrons that loved all the kick butt classes but were not interested in anything called Yoga. When I was asked to teach a fitness class I tried to offer  “power yoga” to give them the hard workout they wanted but as soon as they saw the yoga mats they turned and ran. So I taught the total body weight workouts they liked and slowly started to add more yoga sequencing, alignment and breathing cues,  but I kept the weights and strength stuff in, (I kinda snuck yoga up on them:) and that’s how FitFlow Yoga Sculpt was born!

FitFlow Yoga Sculpt combines yoga and fitness styles to work all the elements of fitness: Strength, Endurance, Cardio, and Flexibility. Using weights to add challenge to this dynamic flow yoga class will ensure your students get a full body workout they want!


DATES: May 28th

Time: 1:00 – 4:00pm

Fee: $65.00 for 1 workshop, $120.00 for 2 workshops.

The Slippery Psoas

For Yoga Teachers, Personal Trainers, Group Fitness Leaders and curious yogis!

The Psoas is much more than a muscle. Proper alignment & movement of the psoas muscles can heal many aches and pains, and might just have a larger effect on your health. It cradles your kidneys, it gives you length and space, and promotes adaptability. Come join Dr. Thara Vayali, Naturopathic Doctor & Yoga Teacher, in a three hour workshop that explores anatomy, common medical conditions, and how to correctly stretch & strengthen this muscle group.

Workshop facilitator – Thara Vayali has been teaching yoga for over a decade and offers public & private yoga sessions in Vancouver. She is the creator of Change: Natural Medicine. She is foremost a teacher, and loves to share her knowledge through engaging, lighthearted, and informative workshops that weave yoga & medicine into take home tools to better your health. Dr. Vayali is smitten with the body. The Psoas is a muscle she has researched, rehabilitated, injured, overused and now dearly loves. Through learning anatomy and having a yoga practice to discover how anatomy turns into action, she has healed her once dysfunctional psoas and in turn her functional psoas has healed her in many ways.
