Yin Yoga Workshop
with Eileen O'Sullivan
Sunday April 27th
2 - 4pm
A still and sometimes challenging practice, Yin yoga embraces longer holding of various floor postures that target primarily the hips, pelvis and spine. We are encouraged to passively enter into shapes, while maintaining an appropriate edge, to replenish and stimulate the dense and less mobile connective tissue surrounding our bones and joints. This quiet practice can be very beneficial to our overall well being. Time spent in each pose allows our nervous system to calm and our physical and energetic bodies to balance, as our awareness draws inwards towards reflection, contemplation and repose.
A dedicated practitioner for two decades, Eileen was introduced to yin yoga ten years ago with Sarah Powers and it has been an integral part of her practice and teaching ever since. She is grateful to share this simple yet profound form of yoga with our community.

Teaching from the Heart: Being Creative and Authentic
with Liza Bertini & Patrick Franco, Owners of Devotion Yoga
Sunday, May 4, 2014
2:00pm - 4:30pm
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.
