Hi, I’m Kali & I’ll be your teacher.
Here’s the short version of my story:
I first learned yoga trying to follow a DVD in the early 90s! I dabbled with it until I experienced burnout in my professional career around 2010. To escape, I got my first teaching certification.
Since then, I’ve studied Yoga Therapy–which is more in tune with what I (& most people) need to reduce stress, improve sleep, & change your perspective on life!
Seeing beginners–especially people who don’t think they can do yoga or would enjoy it–is one of the most rewarding things I do.
What You’ll Learn & What You’ll Get
Over the course of the 6 weeks, you’ll learn:
✔️ Basic standing, seated, kneeling, prone, and reclined* postures.
✔️ How & when to breathe when practicing yoga (which makes it so much more powerful than “stretching”)!
✔️ The 6 ways you should move your spine every day to remain healthy.
✔️ Hear instructions (that you most likely won’t hear from instructors) to help you understand why & how to keep yourself safe & relaxed.
✔️ Receive a handout with illustrations & reminder instructions for all of the postures we cover so you can practice at home if desired.
✔️ Be able to ask questions throughout each class–these are “workshoppy” on purpose. There are no “bad” or “stupid” questions!
✔️ Experience a full “class” that integrates all that you’ve workshopped into a more realistic experience of what you might find out in the world.
*If there is a position you can’t or would prefer not to do (e.g. kneeling), I will include variations that show you how to still get the same advantages!
