WELCOME TO YOGALEENA SCHOOL – WHERE YOGA MEETS LIFE.
Yogaleena School is a beautiful space for inspired learning, intimate connection, and meaningful transformation. We offer a variety of trainings, immersion programs, and small-group classes designed for students interested in deepening their wholistic knowledge of yoga and applying its wisdom to find more freedom, fulfillment, and joy in their lives.
If you’re ready to take your practice to the next level – on and off our mat – you’re in the right place!
INTRODUCING YOGALEENA SCHOOL PODS
We’ve re-imagined how we study and teach yoga at Yogaleena in order to offer a more intimate and individualized learning experience for our students!
Our new yoga pods are small groups that meet weekly – same day/time, same teacher, same community – and follow a thoughtful curriculum of poses, techniques, and philosophy themes. Limited to 10 participants, our pods give students the opportunity to deep dive into a variety of new skills and concepts, ask questions, play with props, receive personalized assists, and share their growth with a supportive tribe of like-hearted seekers.
Just as we cannot dump a gallon of water on a tree one day an then forget to water it the rest of the month, we cannot expect to truly benefit from our yoga practice if we don’t tend to it, nurture it, and make it a priority. In addition to weekly Pod meetings, students enrolled in Yogaleena School will have unlimited access to our virtual and studio schedule to practice the new skills they’ve learned.
The physical postures of yoga, which tend to get the most attention in the West, are just the tip of the iceberg. In order to truly benefit from this practice, we need to learn to live it – on and off the mat. Our school offers students the unique opportunity to dive into a wide range of topics rooted in the wisdom of yoga philosophy and apply them to modern life. Each week, Pod leaders will weave a specific theme into their session and provide a safe and nurturing environment for reflection and discussion. Students will also have access to a variety of workshops and receive a weekly email with additional resources and recorded practices to deepen their learning.
WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING
“Joining the Yogaleena pod with Alyssa on Wednesday nights is the best thing I have done for myself in many years. The yoga flow itself and breakdown of poses gives me confidence and allows me to relax. I’m less worried about getting it perfect because we are breaking it down and taking the time to focus on the small aspects that make big differences. The end result is my best effort, which is my version of perfect. The best part of the pod, though, without a doubt, is our time together as our communal support system. We have 30 minutes each session to support each other and encourage one another to tackle new challenges and leave old battles behind. Delving into the emotional side of yoga and filling my cup with my new yoga community has made a dramatic difference in my week.” – Rachelle Kanack
“The Yogaleena School Pod brought me back to my yoga practice. I had taken a step back from my practice for a couple of years, yet during the last few months I found myself wanting to spend more time being intentional with my movement. Nervous to go back in to a studio with such a long time off the mat, the School Pods have given me my confidence back. I am so grateful for ability to ask questions and try new (and old!) poses in such a supportive environment. Kelsey’s Vinyasa Pod has been such a fun exploration of movement, intention, and education! I am thrilled to be a part of Yogaleena and so happy to have found a home.” – Marie Parisot
“The weekly pod has easily become the best part of my week. Not only do I get a good practice in, I get to connect with other people who are looking to learn more and have fun. We are constantly learning from one another and I love that we don’t take the class too seriously. Yes we are all there to deepen our practice, but we also get to take the chance to laugh and enjoy our time. In just a few classes, I have already begun thinking about my practice in a new way. I have tried poses I never thought I could do and look forward to all of the new ones to come!” – Erika Kalsi
