Event description

Description

Are you ready to dive deeper into your Yoga practice? How about figuring out where to start? What is this sun salutation that everyone is doing? Want to learn how you can modify poses for your unique body? In this workshop, you will learn some basic techniques to starting your own Yoga practice at home.

Let's get real for a minute -- life gets in the way of taking care of ourselves a lot of the time, and sometimes our home isn’t the most ideal place to practice yoga. So... we will be talking about practical ways to integrate Yoga into your life and into your personal space.

Here’s what you’ll leave with:

  • 5 simple tips to fit yoga into your day, even if you're super busy

  • 3 steps to safely developing your Yoga routine, even if you have no idea what you're doing

  • Professional tips on time management and making practice happen

  • Modifications techniques for your unique body

  • A handout for figuring out what to do when you get on the Yoga mat (with artistic renderings from moi)

  • A Brief introduction to the 8 limb path - including asana (movement) and pranayama (breath)

  • Community! Meet like-minded folks that live in the Bay Area to practice with!

We will not be on the mat the entire 4 hours. There are cushions and chairs available. All body sizes, ages, races and genders are welcome. We will talk about how to start your practice where you are at.

There are 2 flights of stairs to attend, so unfortunately, this is not wheelchair accessible. Please arrive as scent free as possible.

All props provided, please bring a mat if you have one.

Angela started her yoga journey in 1999, and never thought she could actually be a Yoga teacher until she went on a retreat with Anna Guest Jelley of Curvy Yoga. Her mind was officially blown seeing a big-bodied Yoga teacher in a room filled with other big bodies! She realized she had something to offer other people. That seeing someone that looks like you, doing something you admire is powerful. Angela founded Big Yoga Life in 2016, and now teaches 3-4 classes a week in Oakland and Berkeley.

"This workshop was a really powerful experience. The curtain over what it means to fully practice yoga was pulled back in a way that is not possible during a 75 minute class session. Though I have been attending classes with Angi for a year, it was not until this workshop on home yoga practice that I appreciated how much I had learned and what I could create for myself on my own at home to supplement taking yoga classes. The mix of practice and dialogue was much appreciated -- the chance to stop, ask questions, clarify intentions, and hear from an experienced instructor how they approach their own practice was invaluable." - Rachel B.

“Angi rocks. A good Yoga teacher uses their knowledge to help her students get into and hold poses to gain benefits from the practice as well as strike a cord with integrating a spiritual bend. Angi's gift goes waaaay beyond this.”

-- Bara S.
