Whether you are brand new to yoga, looking to get back into the swing of things after some time off, or just itching to learn more about the practice - this workshop series is for you!
Together we will explore the physical yoga practice from the foundation up. Diving into the basics of postural yoga in an open, welcome environment where questions, inquiry, and exploration are both welcome, and encouraged.
In the first session, we will learn about the fundamentals of common yoga postures you may encounter in class, language, terminology, and the basics of breath work. In our second session we will continue the conversation, spend time breaking down why we do what we do, and experience a mini-class which connects the dots and offers an easy transition into a regular yoga practice. Leave these workshops feeling connected and confident to step into group yoga classes, beginning your practice with knowledge and intuition.
We know that stepping into something new can be overwhelming, CJ & Kim are here to support you along the journey with their deep knowledge and teaching experience. CJ Yeagley is an ex-collegiate Football player, a certified Master Awakening Yoga instructor and holds a degree in Exercise Science. Kim Beach is a Yin Yoga teacher and has been a daily yoga practitioner for nearly 2 decades under the guidance of many experienced teachers such as Bernie Clark, Stewart Gilchrist, and Patrick Beach.

A journey into the flying side of the Yoga practice. All of the why’s, why not's and how to’s necessary for an inversion practice. In this training you will not only build a new level of comfort in your own inversion practice, but walk away with the tools needed to safely share the joy of going upside down with your students. We will explore two paths in this training - the path of liberating your own practice through the physical efforts needed to build your inversion practice and a path of manifestation - a study of the ideas, alignment, safety techniques, communication skills, and developing a keen eye for looking at bodies to share this knowledge with others. This training will create a shift in your body, mind, and spirit.
All levels are welcome to join and a previous 200hr certificate is not required unless this is to be applied to your AYA 300 hour certification
