Yoga to Go and Nidra Desserts
The benefits of yoga go way beyond the physical. And many yoga techniques can be applied to every day life situations. In this workshop, Dennis Kast will guide you through an integrative yogic approach to everyday life challenges, such as dealing with difficult emotions, aging gracefully or something as simple as better managing the clutter in your life. The practices will be a weave of yoga, positional yoga therapy, breathing, and yoga nidra meditation. You will learn compassionate and simple approaches that you can easily apply in your life whenever needed and where-ever you are! A CD of related yoga nidra meditation will be offered for $15.
Saturday, September 20th, 1:00 – 4:00 pm
$60 if paid by 9/13, $65 thereafter

Marietta Yoga Teacher Training/Immersion Program
Our mission is to offer quality intensive exploration in the practice and philosophy of yoga and meditation with the intention of enhancing awareness and knowledge of your True Self, and of enabling you to safely and effectively teach yoga and meditation to others.
Do you attend yoga classes, practice yoga on your own, and still hunger for more?
Come to the Marietta Yoga Teacher Training/Immersion Program. Whether you want to become a yoga teacher or not, you will deepen your own personal practice and expand your study and understanding of yoga and yourself. We invite you to join us for eleven intensive weekends spread over five and a half months of study and practice of asanas, meditation, the Yoga Sutras, particularly the Eight Limbs, anatomy, chakras, and much more.
The program meets the requirements and guidelines of Yoga Alliance for 200-hour level yoga teacher certification, and you gain more than a certification. Immersing yourself in intensive exploration with like-minded people, you further the journey that you have already begun. Enjoy this unique opportunity to enhance your ability and awareness of how to live your dharma, what you are meant to do in this lifetime, and to enhance your connection to your True Self. Space is limited to a maximum of ten students, where we can offer a more focused individualized approach in a small group setting.
