The Buddha said that all fear comes from an untamed mind. Fear has many faces: from fear of failure to uncertainties about finances and world issues to fear of loss of a loved one or friend. Even when living in relative happiness, fear can hold us back from pursuing the life we envision for ourselves. It often keeps us focused on the past or future, but by calming the mind, living in the present, and exploring the deeper roots of fear, we can avoid living a life that is shaped and driven by fear. Join Liza Bertini in an experience of learning to live fearlessly.
Yoga Inspired Coaching is a unique method that combines the profound wisdom of yoga philosophy, with meditation, guidance and inspiration. We will use the collective energy from like-minded people, and tools that will help you to empower and create a purposeful, authentic, inspired, and easeful life. The coaching experience is one that helps an individual stay on course with their life design, offers ideas and options, provides support, encouragement, and celebrates successes.
Art of Intelligent Sequencing: A Workshop for Yoga Teacherswith Patrick Franco
Saturday, July 19th
12:15 - 3:15pm
$75 per person
Vinyasa Yoga is a step-by-step process that involves knowledge of how one builds, in gradual stages, toward a “peak” within a practice session. This progression includes a clear beginning, middle & end, using asanas of increasing complexity and challenge to prepare the body for more strenuous poses. In this workshop, we will break down individual poses and identify their key features. We will then utilize those key features to construct and sequence classes that have clarity, purpose and intention building toward a "peak pose." The workshop will include both a theoretical and practical component. We will begin with an asana class followed by analysis and discussion or "Dissecting the Class." You will learn how to create specificity and focus for yourself that will take your teaching (and your students) to a new level. It’s important to remember that a vinyasa is not just ANY sequence of action: It is one that awakens and sustains consciousness.

Yoga is about community. When yogis feel that they are part of a like-minded community, they are inspired to return to their mats again and again. After ten years of building a strong and consistent community at Devotion Yoga, Liza and Patrick share their tips and ideas about how to grow your community of students through inspiration, consistency, connection, and engaging promotion. Learn how to share your love of yoga with a larger audience by identifying your special gifts as an instructor, building relationships with your students, other teachers, and studio owners, and enhancing your students’ experience on the mat.
