290 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training

What is Hatha Yoga?

Ha -  translates as “sun” and Tha translates as “moon”. Hatha Yoga balances  these two energies bringing balance to body and mind. Hatha yoga refers to the physical practice of yoga (asanas) as  opposed to, say, chanting or meditation. 


As a style of yoga, Hatha Yoga aligns the body allowing the energy to flow freely,  especially through the spine - the main energy channel of the body. In our physical  practice we work on balancing flexibility and strength, steadiness and  ease (Sthira and Sukha). Hatha yoga can sometimes be thought of as a more gentle form of yoga  than Power Yoga, Ashtanga or Vinyasa because the poses aren’t generally  linked together in a flow, however, Hatha classes can  be just as challenging due to their slower pace.

290 Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training

What is Vinyasa Yoga?

Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses that is one of  the most popular styles of yoga in the United States today. Also sometimes  called Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga, and Power Vinyasa Yoga this type of practice involves synchronizing  the breath with a continuous flow of postures. The fluid movements increase flexibility, strength, and stamina, as it  calms the mind and improves overall health.  

"Vinyasa means a gradual progression or a step-by-step approach that  systematically and appropriately takes a student from one point and  safely lands them at the next point. It is sometimes described as the  "breathing system," or the union of breath and movement that make up the  steps." - Maty Ezraty

Bryan Kest Long, Slow, Deep Workshop

Long, Slow, Deep Master Class  (2p-5p) Bryan had a couple of objectives when he created Long, Slow,  Deep. First of all, Bryan wanted to give students a deep and challenging  alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing yoga classes. He  wanted students to have a choice of yoga practices that may not involve  Sun Salutations or Standing Series. Bryan wanted to offer students a  practice that is utterly potent without focusing on strength, endurance  or even building much heat. Secondly,Bryan wanted students to experience  the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving massive areas  such as hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc., more time to release  and go deeper into poses. This is truly an amazing routine!! It is by  FAR the most difficult class Bryan teaches, yet we rarely leave the  floor. The challenge of Long, Slow, Deep is mostly primarily mental but  hang in there, be patient and keep breathing deeply and fluidly. This  class is suited for students of all levels.

Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Joe Barnett

More  and more teachers and practitioners are exploring Yin Yoga. This is a  natural reaction to what has become an extremely yang health culture.  Yin yoga is the relaxed practice of floor postures for three to five  minutes at a time. A yin practice emphasizes the connective tissues of  the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine. It prepares the body and mind  for longer meditation practices. By drawing the student’s awareness away  from the muscles and deeper into the bones a deep level of relaxed  focus is achieved.
