Teaching from the Heart: Being Creative and Authentic

with Liza Bertini & Patrick Franco, Owners of Devotion Yoga
Saturday, September 6th

2:00pm - 4:30pm

Register Here!

Amid an ever-growing number of yoga teachers, students are seeking those who add depth to their instruction with creative themes and inspirational and purposeful asana. To teach successfully, teachers must find their own voice and passion, candidly share their experiences, and stay inspired. When these aspects are missing, a teacher's confidence suffers, classes may be less dynamic, and students are less likely to come back for more. Join Liza and Patrick for a discussion about how to teach from your heart, remain creative and inspired, and motivate your students to revisit their mat, day after day.
 
Liza Bertini, E-RYT 500, is a Kripalu Yoga teacher, entrepreneur, and life coach. She is the founder and director of Devotion Yoga. Her dharma is to foster community and provide experiences that inspire others to live conscious, healthy, full, and authentic lives.
 
Patrick, E-RYT 500, is the Yoga Director at Devotion Yoga. His classes are devoted to creating a light hearted atmosphere that encourages self study through traditional yogic philosophy and rhythmic movement. He offers an energetic and devotional Vinyasa practice infused with a gentle, compassionate, and soulful spirit that comes from his own daily practice.

Typically, the runner’s body experiences excessive pounding, tightening and shortening of muscles and not enough restorative elongation and loosening. A regular and well-rounded yoga practice will help bring your body into symmetrical alignment, build strength, flexibility and correct imbalances which will help prevent injuries due to the repetitive nature of endurance sports. Whether you are training for a marathon or being proactive to prevent a future sports injury, Yoga for Runners is for you!

Register Here!

Take a guided journey to a calm and peaceful mind. In this 4-week series learn techniques to relax the body and mind, gain clarity of thought and become aware of your true nature. We will begin to explore the fundamentals of mindfulness meditation, the moment-to-moment awareness of your actual experience. Students will be encouraged to maintain an inward focus on breath, sensation, and activities of the mind to stay present in the moment.
 
In our supportive group atmosphere there will be technique instruction, guided meditation and discussion of yogic philosophy and how to apply it all to daily life.

Do you sometimes wonder if you are really doing a pose safely or why a certain pose continues to be extremely challenging even after lots of practice? Learn the finer detail of more advanced postures in Devotion’s new Asana Labs! These unique classes will concentrate on alignment and the subtler aspects of certain poses while braking down the components needed for steady, strong and easeful postures.

Focus for September: Wheel Pose

What turns you upside down, stretches your chest, works your shoulders, hamstrings, and wrists? Urdhva Dhanurasana – also known as Full Wheel - in this month’s lab, we'll look at all the pieces that build up to this pose full of front body extension. What goes into making the pose, modifications of the pose, and more advanced variations of the pose will be explored!
