Description

The way to actually learn yoga and deepen your practice of yoga is to do the same poses day after day for a period. Then you can learn how your body responds to the physical poses, you can relax and watch your mind in the calm of knowing what comes next, and you can grow with the pose on many levels.

This 4 week yoga immersion course offers you a way to learn yoga in the truest sense, poses and philosophy, how to live your life in yoga, not just a pose on a mat. 

The pose sequence for the class is exactly the same for each day of that commitment, with additional teachings and support offered each day. The course is designed for practicing poses for six days and on the seventh, you'll rest the body and energize your mind with teachings of philosophy, yoga off the mat and even a bit of yoga cooking.

Learning yoga is like learning a language, daily practice is much better than cramming before an exam. 

This level is called Ginger as it is warm, spicy, hot, healing, juicy and has intense energy.

In addition to the daily 30 minute practice, each day includes a video teaching on a yoga topic with related reading materials. The topics include how to watch your thoughts and notice negative self-talk, how to incorporate yoga in your daily life, how to practice yoga breathing techniques and how to meditate wherever you are.

You will need to have a yoga mat, a space in your house that is at least enough enough for the mat. If you have yoga blocks, that would be helpful, but if not, you can use books or a chair. Come to the 30 minute pose practice with an empty stomach and open mind. The best time to practice is first thing in the morning, but whenever you can make it to your mat, that is the time for you. You watch the philosophy video and read the material anytime during the day, perhaps just before you practice the poses, or alternatively, just before you go to bed.

Who is the target audience?
  • Have lots of yoga experience
  • Have just a bit of yoga experience but feel able to listen to body and respect edges and respond to edges correctly
  • Have just a bit of yoga experience but feel very confident about moving body in space and listen to directions from the outside and listening to response from the inside
  • Want a class that moves with breath largely, though will have a few held poses
  • Want yoga pose challenges, including ways to work toward pose expressions with props
  • Want to move more quickly and understand your limits so can back off when you need to.

Vital Yoga with Meta at Home

Meta has studied yoga for decades and has been teaching for fourteen years. She has written an award winning book, Vital Yoga: A Sourcebook for Students and Teachers, a DVD, No Excuse Yoga, and has taught teacher trainings, workshops, and public classes for many years. Before opening her yoga studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico, she received a bachelor of science degree in Food Science from Purdue University, took a job as a brewing supervisor for Miller Brewing Company, then earned a master of business administration degree in Information Systems, graduating with distinction from New York University, and worked as a computer systems consultant, technical software writer, and university lecturer.

Meta is a Registered Yoga Teacher, RYT, e-500 hr, the highest level available, since 2001 with Yoga Alliance. The Teacher Training program is registered with Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga School, RYS.

Meta took her first yoga class in 1978. Years later, after working in business, teaching in academia, and writing software books, she was drawn back to yoga following the development of a serious illness. Her passion for yoga led her to eventually open a studio and later establish a Teacher Training & Life Enrichment Program, a nationally accredited curriculum incorporating a variety of traditions and styles.
