Join Britni for this workshop series designed to help you explore and deepen your own practice, both on and off the mat. Yoga students and teachers of all experience levels are welcome.
On the mat, we’ll look at ways to customize your practice - exploring variations of common asanas (poses) that may better serve you and each of our own unique bodies. We’ll also discuss questions and concerns that arise, and find clarity in our practice through inquiry.
Off the mat, we’ll discuss the key principles of Kriya Yoga. Kriya is a sanskrit word, which means the yoga of action or practice. Together, we’ll look at ways we can align each our own values with our lifestyle - how we practice our yoga in our daily lives, beyond the poses.
These workshops may be taken together, or individually. May be used as Continuing Education for Yoga Alliance.

In this workshop, you will be guided through the basics of yoga using sound principles of alignment.
The workshop includes:
• Brief discussion and introduction to yoga
• 1-hour practice of basic yoga poses, modifications, & breathing
A special 90 minute class designed for a busy life and a busy mind. Slow down and find deep rest through restorative yoga coupled with the healing sounds of Tibetan singing bowls.
No experience required. Dress for comfort.
Nathalie will teach a 75 minute Vinyasa Yoga all levels class in which she will bring students through the chakras system for deeper awareness and clarity of body, mind and spirit. She will incorporate movements, specific yoga postures related to each chakra, breath, sounds and visualization as we move deeper into the many layers of ourselves.
In this workshop we will let go of that which no longer serves us, through our breath, movement (asana) practice, and focused healing techniques...
Together we will review the energetics of each chakra.
We will look at how each chakra affects our daily lives on a subtle level and how we can make better decisions to support balancing our chakras and therefore live our most authentic life.
Nathalie will provide healing tools and techniques so that workshop participants may implement those tools to support their journey towards optimal health and to live a well regulated balanced life.
