Yoga for Busy Moms (People!)
What you'll learn
- Improved awareness of your body and its needs.
- How to calm your mind and recover from a busy day, or prepare for the one ahead.
- Improved clarity, focus, strength, balance, and flexibility.
- The history of yoga and its background.
- Various yoga poses and routines that will benefit you the rest of your life.
- How to be a 'super-mom' and manage the stress of daily life :)
- Since this course is suited to beginner and experienced practitioners alike, not a lot of previous knowledge is required. A yoga mat is must, but other props such as yoga blocks, bolsters and/or straps are optional based on personal strength and flexibility. Levels will be offered in the practice to suit a variety of skill levels. Yoga is best practiced while barefoot, wearing comfortable, well-fitting clothing that won’t ride up or get in the way of movement and balance.
This course is designed and instructed by Livia Taylor, who has been a student of yoga herself since 2002. Livia certified in YogaFit in 2009, and received her 200 hour yoga teacher training certificate in 2017.
These practices are intended to give busy people a chance to slow down and focus on a mind-body connection they may otherwise neglect due to daily demands.
Each 30-minute yoga practice is designed with a different emphasis, ranging from relaxation to complementing your other workouts. If you’re a runner, there’s a class to help open the hips; if you’re a weightlifter, there’s a class to help maintain range of motion and open the shoulders; if you’re looking for a pick-me-up, there’s a class to help you find energy to get through the rest of the day. All classes are suitable for beginners.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who thinks they’re too busy for yoga! This course is designed to show that with just 30 minutes at home, you can find time to listen to your body and give it the workout, stretching and quiet time it needs.
Livia was first introduced to yoga as a senior in high school (2001-2002). Once she began attending Weber State University, she more regularly practiced yoga through the athletic program offered on campus. It became an important part of her life, and in 2009 she certified to teach PiYo (pilates and yoga fusion) with FiTour. In 2010 she certified with YogaFit, followed by an additional Hatha Yoga certification with FiTour. For four years, Livia taught pilates and yoga on campus at Weber State, and for Wasatch Therapy and Fitness of Ogden. She also assisted with the development of a yoga class for Farr West Tumblers and taught there for two years.
In 2017, Livia completed a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) with Salt Lake Community College.
