Practiced hot or not, these levels incorporate many common postures seen in the classica 84 asana in the Ghosh lineage accompanied by common hatha and asana training techniques.

26&2 Alignment Workshop

Commonly offered in a two hour setting, this workshop looks at common themes woven through the 26&2 Hot Yoga postures and provides students with a different insight of how to approach their normal 90 minute class.

 

50 hour practice intensive

Moving towards the practice of advanced asana as an advanced practitioner does not ask for an “advanced body” demonstrating “deep poses.” Rather, a practitioner’s willingness of the mind to move just outside a seeming comfort and without attachment towards the unknown, maps an advanced yoga practitioner. This course begins the day with hatha class and completes the day with vinyasa class, offering a unifying range of mechanical understanding, diversity of positioning, and diverse practice methodology.

Ranging from 4 to 6 consecutive days, this open week of practice is meant to merge students and teachers passionate about practice and interested in the powers of challenging oneself through asana. This course covers alignment of common hatha and vinyasa poses, asana training techniques, pranayama work, and two asana practices a day.

 

Arm Balance/Inversions

In a workshop setting, students are lead through a series of movements to heighten their awareness in space, the use of their hands on the floor, and their breath in relation to gravity to create a framework of strength to invert. To find what each student is working on in their own inversion practice, we run through drills and postures which leave students with foundational understanding to go home and expand their study. 

 

Backbending

Systematically prepping the body for spine work, students are lead through a series of movements to move towards the break down of common backbend postures. These movements lubricate the spine and the mind on the quest of comfort in ones backbend practice and establish the confidence necessary to reach ones backbend goals. 

 

Continuing Education

Continuing to be interested, inspired, and active in ones teaching can be challenging at times. Gianna works one on one, or in small group settings with teachers looking to fuel their passion for teaching. Through group discussion, the study of voice and speech, a look at ones individual practice, and goals we create a personal road map for teachers to progress in their teaching.

 

Full Spectrum Hatha Class

Taught hot or cold, this asana practice using traditional hatha yoga techniques, is comprised of common hatha postures pulled from the classical 84 asanas and texts. Throughout this class, practitioners of all levels are welcomed to a place of healthy challenge and introspection. 

 

In Depth Hatha Yoga Teacher Training

This 3 module course is split into a leveled system. Level 1 is a 12 day study breaking down hatha poses comprised into a 90 minute series. This module is the foundation for those new and old to teaching, covering lifestyle, ethics, philosophy, anatomy, asana practice and breakdown, pranayama, and meditation. Level 2 is a 4 day immersion breaking down a progressive approach to the classic 26&2 series. This 60 and 90 minute practice includes training techniques, advanced expressions, and third sets of the postures. Level 3 is a 7 day course running through an advanced hatha practice. Together, all modules make up a 500 hour certification and create a comprehensive expression of a hot or not hatha practice for all levels of interest.
