Workshops

Asanas (poses) are the most common way to practice yoga, but there is so much more goodness to be found in this beautiful and transformative tradition. Our yoga workshops are intended to explore the other sides of yoga – self study, meditation, detachment, and discipline to name a few – and help you integrate them into your everyday life. From awakening your creativity to offering tools to deal with stress and anxiety, our yoga workshops will bring your practice to a whole new level.

Workshop Cancellation Policy:

Workshops can be fully refunded up to 72 hours before the event. If you need to cancel with less than 72 hours of notice, the workshop cost will be refunded as Account Credit (can be spent on anything at Yogaleena.) No Show = No Refund:)

The Art & Play of Yoga Assists!

Dates: Saturday, July 27

Time: 3:00-5:00 pm

Instructor:  Brittany Kraft & Lucas Hall

Investment: $45/person or $70 for two!

Intelligent assists offer support and guidance in a pose. They take us somewhere we never could have gone alone and offer an opportunity to explore rather than hold a specific shape. When we assist we lend a hand, we offer our stability so that someone can feel liberated in a pose. When we receive an assist, we experience a sense of reassurance and freedom that can transform our physical and energetic bodies.
This insightful and playful workshop will build on the fundamentals of assisting and apply them to both foundational and advanced poses. Yoga teachers and students are both welcome to experience the power of assists which will transform their teaching and personal practice. Bring a friend and get $20 off!!!
