COURSE DESCRIPTION

This easy and empowering, real-life, and comprehensive course is taught by Alanna Kaivalya , voted one of America’s favorite yoga instructors under the age of 40 by Yoga Journal Magazine , and an expert in making the timeless, enriching power of yoga accessible to the modern day practitioner.

The online yoga classes have been developed to teach you, in only 7 days, how to live the yoga lifestyle you’ve been dreaming of to help maintain a healthy body, a clear mind, and an uplifted spirit. This innovative method of teaching shows you exactly how to incorporate yoga into your everyday life by giving you a 7 day primer that you can continue to follow every week, or simply follow Alanna’s week-long guidance to take your yoga practice to the next level and feel empowered, invigorated and enlightened!

Yoga’s health benefits are well recognized by the global community and Alanna makes the yoga practice simple, easy to follow and accessible so you can understand exactly how to live like a yogi- both on and off the mat.

As a bonus to the video portion of the program, you receive lectures on yoga philosophy to help you get started on a path of mental clarity, and a comprehensive course guide that will continue to be a valued resource anytime - long after your first 7 days leading a complete yoga lifestyle!

What is a Complete Yoga Lifestyle?

Body - Yoga promises personal transformation and health. To fulfill this promise as a yogi, you start each day by doing your practice. A yoga practice can be as short as 5 minutes or as long as 90. The key is consistency. This course shows you exactly how to craft and create your yoga routine to become a natural part of your life - just like brushing your teeth.

Mind - Alanna offers you insight not only into the health-restoring benefits of yoga, but also into the mind-clearing benefits of the yoga philosophy by keeping it real, practical and down to earth. Yoga philosophy is an easy lens to look through and change your perspective on life. Alanna shares with you simple, uncomplicated ways to do this and make life look a little brighter.

Spirit - Unfettered by dogma or doctrine, Alanna’s modern day wisdom illuminates the power of the yoga practice to bring complete well-being, beginning with the transformation of the body and the clearing of the mind, but also by giving insights as to how to live with a free and open heart. It’s simple, and it starts with our intention, our focus on our breath and using our yoga practice to affect more than just what happens on our mat. Her lectures will show you creative ways to let your yoga practice change you...and your world.
