This enrollment runs from Sat Apr 8, 2017 - Sat Aug 12, 2017
Deepen Your Practice with our Yoga Alliance certified 200-hour Teacher Training.  The training is appropriate for those who want to teach and for those who solely want to deepen their practice.  If there's a way to go deeper into yoga than you will in TT, then we don't know about it!
 
See complete Teacher Training info on our website at WeAreYogaCulture.com.
 
Meets every other weekend (with some exceptions - see exact dates at WeAreYogaCulture.com/teachertraining).
Weekends 1-6: Saturdays 10am-4:30pm, Sundays 9:30am-4pm.  
Weekends 7-10: Fridays 6-9pm, Saturdays 10am-4:30pm and Sundays 9:30am-4pm
 
Jenny Schuck and Allison Schleck will be your mentors in Yoga Culture's teacher training.  Our passion for yoga and knowledge that we've gathered along the way will come to you in a nurturing environment.  You will be mentored individually as we all need individualized attention on this path.

Unique aspects of Yoga Culture's teacher training:
We have a lively studio full of yogis who are supportive of new teachers.  Our friendly community is a training ground for your yoga teaching.  Through practice teaching, you'll go out into the world ready to create a sound class and teach it.  You will be supported at both ends - by mentors who give you undivided attention and by students who trust the leadership and are proud to attend your first classes. 
 
Whether you plan on teaching or not, this will make you find a depth of knowledge of yoga that you wouldn't have otherwise.  Like they say: you know how to really learn something?  Teach it.

Yoga Nidra - Guided Relaxation & Meditation - Relaxation Studies with Allison Ray Jeraci Fri, Jun 2, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

$20 by 6/1, $30 after

Practice the art of Savasana. Join Allison for Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, to experience full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. Bring your chronically exhausted and overstimulated self. Highly recommended for everyone under the sun, this is a deep relaxation technique that leads you to experience the relief of stress, restful sleep and a greater sense of harmony and balance throughout your daily life. When practiced on a regular basis, Yoga Nidra can also help to balance emotions, resolve trauma and solve interpersonal problems through self-inquiry and deep reflection.

In this practice, your are not sleeping but rather in a natural state of meditation, completely aware of the sensations in your body and mind while deeply relaxing. We will explore a receptive state of relaxation through setting an intention, becoming aware of the sensations lingering in the body, feeling the breath and the energetic body around us and coming to a place of detachment, a time for self-reflection and deep relaxation.

All levels.

Adventurous Asana Workshop - Advanced Studies with Allison Ray Jeraci Fri, Jun 9, 2017 at 7:15 pm - 9:15 pm

$35 by 6/8, $45 after

Be an adventurer as you explore the advanced postures. These poses take a little more time to teach and learn than we have in a regular class, so we've created a workshop aimed at focus and play.

We'll break these poses down Yoga Culture style so you can figure them out. Get ready to work hard, play hard and laugh. Each workshop will explore different poses like Tittibasana (Firefly), Pincha Mayurasana (Forearm Stand), Eka Pada Raja Kapotasana (King Pigeon), Eka Pada Koundinyasana (you'll have to google this one!) and Bird of Paradise.

Create confidence, strength and balance within your yogi self as you practice patience and focus in these demanding postures.

Restorative Yoga Workshop - Relaxation Studies with Beth Perlman Fri, Jun 23, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$25 by 4/20, $35 after.

Join us for a special 2-hour workshop. Learn how this passive form of yoga is used to relax, restore and refresh your body, mind and spirit. The goal of a restorative practice is to release muscular tension in the physical body, while simultaneously calming the chatter of the mind.

By utilizing props to help relax the body and remaining in the poses for several minutes, the relaxing effects are felt deep within the connective tissues. Thus, Restorative Yoga provides a state of no effort and no movement with a brain that is quiet. The body is more able to fully relax and the mind is able to feel peaceful and serene. One of the best outcomes of Restorative Yoga is that it makes it easier to remain peaceful and calm off your mat. It helps you to respond with logic and clarity, rather than react with anger and emotion.

We hope you will join us for this relaxing and informative evening!  You'll walk out of this feeling like you're on a cloud…

Summer Yoga Retreat in the Catskills with Jenny Schuck Next held on Fri, Jul 14, 2017 at 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This enrollment runs from Fri Jul 14, 2017 - Sun Jul 16, 2017
Only 9 spots available!
 
Join Jenny for her first ever retreat! Spend a weekend at beautiful Heathen Hill in the Catskills, practicing yoga, enjoying the outdoors, lazing away and nourishing yourself on amazing food grown in Heathen's garden.

Jenny strives to create smart sequencing within the aligned vinyasa style. She is a student of Rodney Yee and completed her 500-hour training with Natasha Rizopoulis. The weekend will be a mix of asana practice and her work that she calls 'Stability for a Yoga Body' - a series of exercises to create stability in the central regions of the body made mobile by yoga practice - developed to prevent everyday injuries.

Heathen Hill is a special place in the Catskills. You can read in an adirondack chair while chickens visit with you, sun yourself in the wide open, swim in the swimming hole, hike, walk the labyrinth, play volleyball and badminton and use the hot tub. Or do nothing, which is my faves. We gather for lunch and dinner - the food is amazing - most of it grown on site. It's a wonderful treat to sit with each other at eating times and chat about those things we never get to chat about as we run into and out of yoga class. At night, there are so many stars. I saw the milky way for the first time here. We'll have a bonfire, weather permitting, and maybe a movie night. Everything is optional - you can always sleep or sneak off to chat with a buddy or go antiquing.

Heathen Hill is in Franklin, NY, 2.5 hours from Danbury. Arrive Friday night for dinner with the gang. We'll have two 2-hour sessions on Saturday, with time between for lounging or exploring on your own. Then my friend Tobie Schuerfeld and I will co-teach a 2-hour session on Sunday morning. After our Sunday morning practice, run as fast as you can (if you want to beat me!) to a country brunch before we head home.

Pricing for the weekend for yoga, housing and all meals:
$455-$620 double, depending on room choice
$470-$845 single, depending on room choice
See HeathenHillYoga.net for room choices.
Only 9 spots available.

Email info@WeAreYogaCulture.com to sign up. $100 non-refundable deposit (cash or check only) required to hold your space.

Yoga for Tight Hips - Therapeutic Studies - Semi-Private Lesson with Jessie DiMauro Sun, Jul 16, 2017 at 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

$30 for SuperPass members, $35 for non-members
Semi-Private Lessons are limited to 6 students. With this low student:teacher ratio, you are able to receive more individual attention to work on your specific needs, and at a much lower cost than a private lesson.
 
Tight hips can cause a host of issues throughout the body, including poor posture, knee injury, low back strain and reduced mobility (i.e. getting up from the floor). In this lesson, Jessie will work with each student to help you learn how to increase mobility in your hips, creating a more natural walking gait and freedom while sitting, standing and everything in between. She will also explore the connection between hips and emotional stress. Effective propping will be explained so that you have tools to take into your regular yoga practice.
 
As we age, tight hips can cause balance issues. It is important to keep them mobile and healthy.

In addition, we'll show you how to modify when necessary so you can get through the class with ease.
