Yoga philosophy and other classes during the week when YTT 200hr is in session 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
You will have the opportunity for guests to join the yoga teacher training students in yoga philosophy classes during the weeks there are school in session, in between their yoga classes. Tuesday and Thursdays there are 7 p.m. classes, Tuesday is restorative yoga, and Thursday is Tai Chi. Ira and Valerie lead Yoga Sutras discussions in Satsang style.
Satsang occurs when small groups engage in a spiritual dialogue. In satsang, participants commit to exploring the liberation of truth. It is a formal or informal gathering intended to facilitate the sharing of wisdom and is said to be a particularly important doorway to experiencing inner freedom.
Ira started to practice yoga consciously in 2007. He says consciously because, after getting his 200-hour certification, he realized there were many parts of yoga besides the physical practice. These other paths of yoga (pranayama, meditation, and positive thought), he had already been practicing from the time he was a little boy. This inward feeling of something larger than himself was always present through his years as an entrepreneur, teacher, consultant, and individual being.
Valerie is a certified bodywork and energy therapist for two decades. She is also Dr. Sears certified health coach and previous owner of lifestyle center personal training studio in Soho, New York City. Valerie Leeds developed a wellness and food program called H. E. A. R. T. which stands for healthy eating always a real treat, designed to help you improve your eating and well-being.
