Dear Total Body Yoga Community,
Andrew (Rivin) and I are looking forward to spending some time with you all this November.
Our hope is that these three days of training will change your practice forever. We have each had over 30 years of experience studying and practicing Iyengar and Anusara Yoga, two very established alignment-based yoga methods.
Over the course of our time on the mat, through all the ups and downs that 30 years brings to the human body, we have each explored, encountered and excavated our practice to keep our bodies and minds as sharp and strong as possible. These bodies are high maintenance in every way, and like any other valuable vehicle, the return on investment in self-care is priceless.
Many of you are already familiar with our teaching style as Andrew and Julia have studied with us and others and work to incorporate these ideas into all of their classes. We are excited about this opportunity to spend three days with you and take a deep dive into understanding how to work with these ever-changing human bodies. Even if you have taken many workshops and teacher trainings, there is always so much more to learn. Your body and mind are your greatest teacher and learning how to respond to their cues is part of the practice of yoga.
If you are a teacher, you will come away from this training with new tools that you can immediately implement in your classes. We hear this feedback often and we continue to work to keep our teachings as simple as possible. If you are not a teacher, but you love learning how to practice yoga and wish to know more about your unique body and what it will take to stay strong throughout your life, this training is perfect for you. The group will be small and the mixture of both teachers and students is potent and productive.
Desiree Rumbaugh and Andrew Rivin are a married team. These skilled, internationally renowned yoga teachers travel the world teaching yoga as a way of life. Join them for a 3 day, 15-hour immersion titled How Yoga Strengthens the Mind/Body Connection. Think of these 3 days as a mini-retreat. A time to vacation from work and invest in yourself and shore up your yoga practice. This experience will fill up fast so make sure you sign up today. We hope you will “mat up” with all of us for a one-of-a-kind experience that’s sure to leave both students and yoga teachers refreshed, recharged and ready to face life with a renewed perspective.
