Happy April, yogis! The springtime that seemed like it might never arrive is finally here, and with it, plenty of new opportunities to deepen your practice and become even more involved in the Shockoe Slip Yoga community (have we mentioned how much we love you, lately?)
If you haven’t already heard, our Shockoe Slip 200-Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training is back for a second year, and we can not wait to welcome another group of aspiring yoga teachers into our space! Led by SSY instructor Kate Ainsworth (SPT, E-RYT 500, YACEP) our 200-Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training includes one 4-day immersion and a series of weekend intensives that will blend traditional yoga teachings, modern evidence-based techniques, a physical therapist’s perspective, and plenty of time for self-empowerment, introspection, and discovery. If you’ve ever thought about broadening your practice and sharing it more deeply with others, this is definitely an opportunity you don’t want to miss! Visit: https://www.mindfulness-bar.com/teacher-training/ to learn more and apply.
We’re also offering Friday Open Classes, starting April 6! This one-of-a-kind 75-minute class begins with a led warming flow, and then provides space for a self-paced, open practice (with your instructor nearby to answer any questions or offer any tips!) We’ll end by gathering together for savasana, breath work, and a meditation. You’ll love this one, we promise.
Finally, we know you haven’t forgotten about our biggest adventure of 2018: Our Relaxation + Friendship Retreat on the Amalfi Coast of Italy is steadily approaching, and we want you there with us! The Amalfi Coast is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of your daily life—practicing yoga alongside spectacular views, meditating to the natural soundtrack of the Gulf of Salerno, and soaking up plenty of southern Italian sunshine.
