Hi Friends,

I’m coming to Toronto May 18 & 19th to lead a couple open classes and Strala Intensive Training at Kelly Hilton’s YogaVita. Very exciting to be continuing spreading moving, practicing, and leading with ease outside of NYC and around the globe.

We’ve had a lot of great success with the program. People have learned the approach and went back to their home studios and have had improved class size, more regulars, stronger, excited community, and more. I’m so excited to see teachers really grow their own businesses and support them in the process.  Check out the video to learn more about the training and I hope to see you in Canada!

If you’d like to see a Strala training in your city or home studio, let us know in the comments. We’re going to start to make it around to see you!

Talk soon!

Strala Intensive for Teachers empowers you to find the ease in each movement, whether on your yoga mat, leading a class, or living your life.

You’ll learn how to understand and lead a Strala STRONG class, including sequencing, pace, flow, language and music. We begin with observing your breath, rooting firmly into your natural state of flow, and connecting to creativity and intuition. From here, we move with ease during restful and challenging circumstances alike. When you find ease in effort, your body and life both become very capable and strong. The mind is freed to travel inward, finding peace, calm, and a natural source of sustainable inspiration.  You get happy!  And you can help many others along the way too.
