YogaFit YogaBarre 11:00 AM - 08:00 PM
YogaFit YogaBarre

YogaFit YogaBarre is a fun and functional way to create a balanced body, mind and spirit. Utilizing principles of yoga, ballet barre, pilates, strength training and dance allows for a complete integration of fitness modalities for well-being. We utilize a barre or chair to provide stability, balance, and support as we move through exercises that target the core, glutes, arms, and legs. The major benefits are improved posture, muscle definition, weight loss, increased mobility, and reduced stress.The YogaFit Yoga Barre program helps individuals to become stronger and feel better as they perform their everyday activities.  The program is based not only on muscle balancing, but also on balancing the common postural and movement patterns we create in our daily lives.  The average American adult spends at least 6.5 hours sitting every day and the number is higher for teenagers, according to the Washington Post (The Big Number: The average U.S. adult sits 6.5 hours a day. For teens, it’s even more. Linda Searing April 28, 2019).  This means many Americans are moving through their day with forward head posture, rounded shoulders, a lack of natural curves in the spine and a chronically tight front line.  YogaFit Yoga Barre can provide individuals with a movement practice they will enjoy at the time and for years to come. YogaFit Yoga Barre is also one of the fastest, most effective ways to burn calories and get toned.  Your students will love the functionality, fitness and fun they will experience every time they show up on their mat!

YogaFit for WarriorKids (Childhood Trauma)

InfoAdd
YogaFit for WarriorKids (Childhood Trauma)

With a focus on developmental trauma disorder, a new and vastly expanded tool for understanding early childhood trauma, this special therapeutically oriented workshop centers on the unique way a child’s nervous system and brain respond to traumatic events, including chronic emotional and physical abuse and neglect. We will address somatic gaps in current therapies available and the challenges inherent in treating children suffering from PTSD.  

Note: YogaFit for WarriorKids counts as an elective for either the 200-­hour or the 300-­hour training, but not both. This two-­day workshop also counts toward YogaFit’s 100-­hour and 140­-hour YogaFit for Warriors certification; the 100-­hour YogaFit for WarriorKids certification; and YogaFit’s 900­-hour YogaFit HealthCare certification.
