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.
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 watery and cool aspects of yin yoga are the perfect complement to the fiery, yang aspects of flow practices and our often stressful and hectic lives. Yin affords us the opportunity to slow down body, mind, and breath as we strive for equanimity. As we spend 2 to 5 minutes in each pose, the focus shifts towards observing, yielding, and allowing rather than forcing or pushing. Through a regular yin practice, we learn to sit with our experiences and connect to a calmer, less-reactive state of mind.
In this training, one will learn what yin yoga is by exploring the three basic principles (or “tattvas”) and how to begin applying them to both a home practice and teaching practice. We will outline the various yin yoga poses with opportunities for discussing specific variations and contraindications. We will explore the subtle body side of yin with an emphasis on meridian theory and the five element theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine. And, we’ll discuss the art of sequencing and timing when it comes to teaching a yin yoga class.
Attendees who complete the training and all required homework will receive 21 hours of continuing education credits (CEUs) with Yoga Alliance.

Yoga for Runners
Dates: Saturday, November 9th
Time: 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Instructors: Bailey Robertson
This workshop will aim to give runners of all levels the yoga fundamentals they need for better mobility, faster recovery, and maybe even a new PR out on the track or pavement.
We will move through a full-body workshop-style practice to help recover the body, so you will leave feeling better than when you entered. We will take time to distinguish effective warm up stretches from effective cool down stretches, and provide you with ready-made warm up and cool down plans you can keep using long after the workshop. Finally, we will address some of the most common “problem areas” for runners (tight hips, calves, hamstrings, and IT bands), and hopefully help you find a little relief.
There will be plenty of time for Q&A, as well as to hydrate and carbo-load with gingersnaps in the Studio. Attendance limited to 15 to assure personal attention for each runner.
