Upcoming special events

 IYENGAR YOGA ~ SANIBEL ISLAND RETREAT

May 3-May 10

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJoin certified Iyengar Instructor and Director of the Yoga Institute of Miami Bobbi Goldin and assistant Jane Barrett for a week long Iyengar Yoga Retreat on beautiful Sanibel Island in the Gulf of Mexico.  Students of all levels will be encouraged to stimulate their minds and bodies by expanding known boundaries and letting go from the INSIDE.  This internal acceptance brings calmness to the mind as we gain confidence and self-assuredness.  The Iyengar Method of Hatha Yoga will be the basis of the course, which includes balancing flexibility with strength, building endurance and refining our bodies with correct alignment; passive poses and reclining pranayama (breathing).  The Iyengar Yoga sessions are intentionally designed to keep us in tune with the harmony of ourselves and the glorious nature of Sanibel Island.  Please visit www.yogamiami.com “Coming Events” for much more information about the workshop, accomodations and Sanibel Island or email Bobbi at bobbiji@yogamiami.com with any questions.

RESTORATIVE YOGA WORKSHOP
May 18th

Restorative Yoga is a gentle, relaxing practice that utilizes many props to support the body in poses held for extended periods of time.  This support allows the body to let go of deeply held muscular tension and stress while returning the autonomic nervous system to balance. Restorative practice creates feelings of deep rest and renewal, as your mind remains alert.   While not a treatment, Restorative yoga can improves symptoms of anxiety and depression.  Join Jessica Kasinoff as she shares her training and experience teaching Restorative Yoga.    Visit EVENTS for more information.
