  • Fall Equinox: 108 Sun Salutations
    with Kristina (Karuna) Maze

    Yoga teacher Karuna Maze guides you through various styles of sun salutations—a sequential flow of yoga poses strung together with the breath. Called Surya Namaskar in Sanskrit, sun salutations exercise the entire body, from the crown of the head right down to the soles of the feet. In fact, ancient yogis believed doing 108 sun salutations every day leads to perfect health. Why 108? Karuna will explain the significance of this auspicious number at the workshop.

  • Level Up: Antiracism Teacher Training
    with Dr. Monea Abdul-Majeed

    The days of being a “good” yoga teacher just by showing up with a complicated sequence and a fancy playlist are over. Our world is shifting and it needs yoga teachers to show up BIG now, more than ever. Our world is full of racial tension, hope, confusion, guilt, racial trauma, and grieving, and yoga spaces are not exempt. They are a microcosm of what’s happening in the world so you need more tools…more ways to share the transformative power of yoga to everyone you meet, no matter what race they are. 

    It’s time to take your practice off of your mat and into the world…YOUR world by having real conversations about race relations. It’s time to use your voice for change. Are you ready to level up?

    This virtual immersion will empower YOU to use your practice and voice to show up in the world, ready to serve rather than avoiding the complexities of race by spiritual bypassing. To teach and practice yoga inclusively, you need new skills, new conversations, new perspectives, new self-awareness…you need mindful racial equity training. 

    Join Dr. Monea, Racial Justice Educator/Speaker and 500-hour Certified Yoga Teacher, for 5 weeks to take a deep dive into the realm of racial justice. Each week, we’re going to do a deep dive into challenging and complex race-related topics and material through small group work, group discussions, journaling, lectures, meditation, videos, and podcasts. We’ll use the 3 R’s- reflection, relationships, and resilience to do racial equity work the mindful way.
