The concept of ‘balance’ shows up in our yoga practice hundreds of ways. In this workshop, we’ll investigate some key principles that enable us to balance with more ease in yoga postures. We’ll also look at how to breathe in a way that keeps the nervous system calm and steady rather than over charged and revved up, laying the ground for greater psychological balance in our practice. And we will end with a little dharma talk, discussing how we as yogis can balance the aim of our practice both inwardly towards ourselves and outwardly toward the world.

Your Hosts: Lauren Robinson, RYT-200, Reiki, and Myofascial Release Practitioner is dedicated to healing the mind, body and soul through creative movement. Having completed her 200-hour Prana Vinyasa® Yoga certification in Raleigh, NC she transitioned to the west coast and currently resides in San Diego, studying under global Prana Vinyasa teacher, Shiva Rea. Lauren is actively working towards her 500-hour certification where she has expanded her skills to include pre-natal and Yoga Trance Dance® offerings.

“I was introduced to yoga during a particularly challenging time in my life and was in need of deep healing. I fell in love with Prana Vinyasa® because it was unlike any yoga class I had ever been to. In Prana Vinyasa®, the breath is intelligently sequenced with each movement, creating a truly transformational mind AND body experience. In the most positive way imaginable, yoga radically shifted my mental and physical health. I know in my heart that I’m meant to share this powerful practice with others.”
