I have been getting lots of questions about how to workout during shelter in place rules. A number of people have struggled feeling tired and overwhelmed even though they aren’t sick and not working out regularly. So many of us are off our routines. When we get off our routines our system gets off. This is our nervous system response to stress.
We often do not realize how much work our bodies are doing to manage stress. We feel like it should be fine, we should be fine. And … we are not. We are in need of more rest and support – even when things are not “that bad”. It is important to listen to your body and meet it where it is. Give it what it needs to be your optimal self.
Here are a few suggestions to help you get moving even when your nervous system is busy managing the uncertainty and stress.
Ever wonder why & how Yoga works? Modern Psychology has some of the science to explain the ancient wisdom Yoga has been saying for years.
In this class, we will connect the dots between key Yoga philosophy topics and what recent research in the west has discovered. Understand the science behind mind-body health and the integration of ancient wisdom and modern psychology.
Designed for you – Yoga teachers and mental health providers – walk away with some key tips to bring to your classes, clients and patients. Like how to read posture and behaviors to give your students/patients what they really need to create a shift. If you are a Yoga teacher, mental health provider or practitioner in the health and wellness world asking the question of WHY behind the transformative practice of Yoga … then this class is for you.
Join us, and sign up for the live online class: The Integration of Yoga and Psychology … Wisdom Informs, Science Explains.

The 8 limbs & How they relate to everyday life, even if you aren’t living in an Ashram
PLUS … You’ll have access to us to ask questions during the live program and engage in the online community to help you deepen your experience of the material.
We’ve designed this program to be a combination of lecture/discussion with a question and answer opportunities, experiential practice, teaching guides, opportunities for challenging yourself to expand your comfort zone and engage in the community to share how your practice and teaching changes as you implement the new learning.
I’m sure you are wondering … “what does this program cost”?
Get over 6 hours with both of us!!! During our time we will discuss the items listed above live – so you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and deepen your own study in an interactive style. Over the course, you’ll have exercises, handouts, and a private Facebook group to discuss how the material is changing you and impacting your students and clients.
AND … we’ll be jumping in and commenting, answering questions, and offering other tidbits of information pertinent to the topic of the week and expand on information brought up during the lectures.
(all will be recorded for you to view on your own time as well)
Why pay us to teach you? Because together we have over 30 years of combined Yoga study and teaching experience. We have spent a long time building our understanding of these concepts and have applied them to our lives and 1,000s of students and clients in our own practices.
We know reaching students is an art and it takes knowledge to know how to say, explain, and present just the right bit of information at the right time to make an impact.
We both believe this information is important for our world and know you are part of the solution to creating a better future for us all.
Here’s a bit of information on both of us:
