You Do Yoga is thrilled to be able to offer our first annual retreat to beautiful southern Italy in May of 2011. Details available soon. If interested, please contact us - www.YouDoYoga.com
You Do Yoga wants to hear from people interested in our upcoming Taoist Yoga Teacher Training. We will be covering Yin and Yang forms of Yoga and the fundamentals of physical anatomy based upon the teachings of Paul Grilley. We will develop your teaching from a functional perspective, including the important role of individual anatomical differences. We will become comfortable teaching students with varied levels of ability and experience according to their unique individual needs. We will become familiar with the essential scriptures and philosophical texts of yoga. We will explore subtle anatomy, the energetic system of the body, including chakras and meridians, and we will learn fundamental techniques of meditation. This course meets Yoga Alliance 200 hour standards.
Every "Final Friday" 5:30-7pm

You Do Yoga Does Workshops!
Partner Yoga ~ Partner yoga gives two people a chance to benefit from the support and energy of each other. Partner yoga can strengthen trust within and without. Partner yoga routines provide a unique way to not only synchronize breath and movement - but also personal connections and relationships.
Yin yoga seminars ~ Yin yoga is simple enough that students can learn the fundamental of the practice in a relatively short time. A workshop could be as short as two or three hours, but could also present more detailed information and several practice sessions of greater depth over the course of a weekend seminar.
Anatomy for Yoga ~ By understand a few fundamental principles, you can make your personal yoga practice or teaching considerably more effective and efficient, much safer and less frustrating. No latin experience required, this is a practical and experiential class.
Meditation workshops ~ We have experience teaching meditation in a variety of formats. A single two to three hour seminar can be a great way to introduce students to several useful techniques to add to their own home practice, or an extended series of lessons over time can help students develop their personal practice under the guidance of an experienced teacher.
Chakras, meridians, and chi ~ Based upon thousands of years of spiritual science, this workshop attempts to de-mystify the function and form of the subtle bodies. Mostly lecture but also includes simple guided meditations to clarify the student's understanding.
Reiki ~ In this 2 day workshop you will learn what Reiki is, the history and evolution of Reiki, what Reiki can and cannot do, how to use Reiki to help others and yourself and how to give a full or a partial Reiki session. You will also learn Reiki self-healing, how to become a clean instrument for Reiki energy, how to become a healing facilitator and the basics of subtle anatomy and the chakras.
-Day one will include the attunement to Level I Reiki and day two will include the attunement to Level II Reiki.
No more excuses.... we want You to Do Yoga!
This workshop is specifically designed for those who "have been thinking about trying yoga", or "wanting to start doing yoga", but need a little boost to make the leap to action. We are removing the most common obstacles/excuses:
Excuse: I'm not flexible....
Excuse removal: You don't need to be, this is a workshop for beginners, and in the beginning, no one is flexible. We will develop flexibility with time and practice.
Excuse: I'm so out of shape....
Excuse removal: That is why you should do this, it's time to take action!
Excuse: I'll be the only one there who does not know what's going on....
Excuse removal: You will be surrounded by people who have never done yoga before! Most of the people here won't know what they're doing at first, we'll fix that.
Excuse: I'm nervous/self-
Excuse removal: Again, this is a workshop specifically directed towards people who are new to yoga. There will be lots of students like you and three professional yoga instructors. No one will be judging you.
What you get:
A Manual that contains everything a beginner needs to start their personal yoga practice safely and effectively.
Kind, compassionate support to help you begin an ongoing yoga practice.
Not one but TWO professional Yoga teachers representing multiple perspectives, multiple styles, and a wide range of expertise in teaching yoga.
Pre-registration is strongly recommended.

Partner Yoga and Thai Massage for Two

Join us for a FUN class for couples, friends and family, yoga practitioners, massage therapists, or if you are just curious about Partner Yoga or Thai Yoga Massage. This class is open to all interested students, no previous yoga or bodywork experience is necessary.The class is designed to be fun and playful as well as educational. Most of the class will be hands-on, meaning you will enjoy first a partner yoga practice and then will be giving and receiving Thai Massage throughout the afternoon. First the basic techniques will be explained, then a series of movements will be shown which you will practice on your partner, with the instructors leading and supervising. We will be working on the floor and kneeling quite a bit, so If you have any physical constraints, let the instructors know. This event is the perfect gift for your partner, or just fun for friends and family members to share a healthy way to be nice to each other. You can bring your own partner, or we will provide one for you.
