Are you looking for a way to strengthen your Yoga practice or that of your students? This awesome Pilates-infused Yoga workshop will help you re-connect to your core and become more in-tuned with the body.  If you are an instructor, you will learn the art of becoming a skillful thinking instructor infusing functional movement into your classes.

You will become stronger and taller and be able to connect body and mind so much easier while building strength from within and learning to connect breath with movement.  Learning the art of lateral breathing will increase your lung capacity which, in turn, will help you hold poses longer and breathe easier. When we connect the breath, bandhas, and drishti our practice becomes so much more!

Goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about your ideal future and for motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into reality. Setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life and ultimately achieve them!

 

What strategies do you apply to overcome barriers to setting goals?

Do you often find yourself “drowning” in many thoughts?  Sometimes not knowing which way to turn or feeling in a fog?  Goals without action are empty dreams; actions turn dreams into goals. Even if we miss our goals, it does not make us a failure; it only means we have to replan to accomplish our target. 

 

Goals must be S.M.A.R.T. and balanced.  My 7 step system will help you get a clearer picture in your mind of what you need to do to bring you closer to your goals.  Together we will identify what you REALLY want and learn how to inspire yourself through the Art of B.A.L.A.N.C.E.
