Hosting Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman - Yoga for Life: Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation

  • Holiday Inn Ballston 4610 North Fairfax Drive Arlington, VA, 22203 United States (map)

Spend this weekend exploring asana, meditation, and pranayama with two of the nation’s most respected yoga teachers - Colleen Saidman and Rodney Yee.

We all know yoga is great, but do we know which practices match up with the range of different and challenging situations we encounter? 

Whether it is a vigorous vinyasa, a quiet restorative sequence, pranayama, or seated meditation, we can tailor our practice especially for today and the requirements of how we choose to serve in the world.

Regardless of your level of experience, come join us in refining your knowledge, so that the practice can better serve you in uncovering the joy and courage in everyday life. We will practice asana, pranayama and meditation in each session, within the guidelines of basic yoga philosophy to get more to the core of being. See you soon on your mat!
