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!

BIOFIELD TUNING

The human biofield contains the record of our memories and the blueprint of our physical bodies embedded as energy and information in standing waves within this structure.  In this training, through the use of tuning forks and sound bowls, we will learn to hear the field to gain information about the client and integrate this information into the physical body for digestion and assimilation, creating a potential healing effect for the client. The tuning forks are used first as a diagnostic tool to find the dissonance in the individual’s energy field and second as a means of creating entrainment and coherence of the body with the forks and bowls.

Yoga Sculpt Bundle

We are bringing these two trainings together to create a full one day training that can count as an elective for RYT 200 or RYT 300!

YogaStrength focuses on developing muscular strength and endurance throughout all major muscle groups in the body. YogaStrength is a challenging workout that fuses functional strength and flexibility with the benefits of added resistance. With the safe use of hand-weights/body bars, one can enjoy enhanced muscular toning, shaping benefits and an overall feeling of mind/body strength.

YogaButt™ is a hybrid fitness program that focuses on developing muscular strength and endurance throughout the body, with emphasis on the core stabilizing muscles (abdominal and back muscle groups), and additional muscle groups surrounding and assisting the midsection (glutes, hamstrings, adductors, abductors, quadriceps, and many upper body muscles). Core center strength is the foundation of a complete yoga practice, as well as deep breathing, and clearing the mind.

Using a small, compressible rubber ball placed between the legs, specific YogaFit postures are performed in a brand new way, to assure certain muscles are isolated and strengthened. Additionally, the traditional YogaFit postures are strung together using athletic, active, and flowing sequences and extra fitness movements, such as squats, push-ups, and lunges are added to the format for greater overall body conditioning.

YogaFit Teacher Training Level I is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for the Yoga Sculpt Bundle.

Level Four continues where Level Three left off, exploring more challenging practices and the preparation for each of them. But the real emphasis is on how to weave elements of yoga's ancient tradition into your practice, life, and teaching. This four-day intensive delves deeper into the Yoga Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, and some of the more esoteric elements of yoga, such as chakras, mudras (hand gestures), and sound.

**Please noteDue to the scheduling involved with Level 4 and 5, requests to transfer out of Level 4 or 5 trainings will result in a $100 transfer fee.

BIOFIELD TUNING

The human biofield contains the record of our memories and the blueprint of our physical bodies embedded as energy and information in standing waves within this structure.  In this training, through the use of tuning forks and sound bowls, we will learn to hear the field to gain information about the client and integrate this information into the physical body for digestion and assimilation, creating a potential healing effect for the client. The tuning forks are used first as a diagnostic tool to find the dissonance in the individual’s energy field and second as a means of creating entrainment and coherence of the body with the forks and bowls.

Yoga Sculpt Bundle

We are bringing these two trainings together to create a full one day training that can count as an elective for RYT 200 or RYT 300!

YogaStrength focuses on developing muscular strength and endurance throughout all major muscle groups in the body. YogaStrength is a challenging workout that fuses functional strength and flexibility with the benefits of added resistance. With the safe use of hand-weights/body bars, one can enjoy enhanced muscular toning, shaping benefits and an overall feeling of mind/body strength.

YogaButt™ is a hybrid fitness program that focuses on developing muscular strength and endurance throughout the body, with emphasis on the core stabilizing muscles (abdominal and back muscle groups), and additional muscle groups surrounding and assisting the midsection (glutes, hamstrings, adductors, abductors, quadriceps, and many upper body muscles). Core center strength is the foundation of a complete yoga practice, as well as deep breathing, and clearing the mind.

Using a small, compressible rubber ball placed between the legs, specific YogaFit postures are performed in a brand new way, to assure certain muscles are isolated and strengthened. Additionally, the traditional YogaFit postures are strung together using athletic, active, and flowing sequences and extra fitness movements, such as squats, push-ups, and lunges are added to the format for greater overall body conditioning.

YogaFit Teacher Training Level I is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for the Yoga Sculpt Bundle.
