The Business of Yoga

with Kerry Whiteley

Sunday January 14 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Business of Yoga

As yoga teachers, we love to offer our practice to our students. We come to the practice for various reasons and grow and transform throughout the process. Oftentimes, we do not come to the practice to learn the business around it or new software. However, these are very important aspects of being a yoga teacher. Sustainability as a teacher comes from understanding the business so that you can continue teaching and practicing in a way that supports your life.

In this workshop, we will examine all of the aspects of the business of being a yoga teacher including insurance, creating classes, presence, working in a studio, taxes, software, marketing, and other ways to create income as a teacher. This is a great opportunity to learn some business basics and also examine your relationship with and around money and service as it pertains to your expertise and time value. We will embody Lakshmi and embrace bountiful abundance.
 
Led by Kerry Whiteley, co-owner of URU Yoga Gulf Breeze.

Yin & Yoga Nidra with Muriel Duncan

with Muriel Duncan

Saturday March 24 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Yin & Yoga Nidra with Muriel Duncan

Join Muriel for an afternoon of opening and releasing yin yoga followed by yoga nidra.

Yin yoga postures are designed to open up the body by prolonged holds of deep stretching techniques – typically between 1 to 5 minutes in length. These techniques are designed to put both your body and mind in a state of deep relaxation. Yin yoga focus on the connective tissues of the body – tendons, fascia, and ligaments – with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Often referenced as more meditative approach to yoga, Yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.

The second part of the class, Yoga Nidra, builds upon the relaxed physical and mental state from the preceding Yin postures. Yoga Nidra – also known as Yogic Sleep – is a state of consciousness similar to the process of drifting off to sleep. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of their inner world by following a set of verbal instructions.

Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.

No yoga experience necessary.

price: $18
