Sports Basement – Yoga Classes – July 2008
I’m a Registered Nurse and Registered Dietitian with a Master’s degree in Public Health, who has had chronic illnesses since childhood. My yoga training has been ‘old school’ working in the Sivinanda and mostly the Integral Yoga schools. Right now, I’m teaching at the Jewish Community High school and at the JCC in addition to subbing at Integral Yoga Center of SF and have taught weekly at Rhoda Goldman, senior yoga classes.
Liz Filippone, RYT has been practicing yoga for 9 years and received her 500 hour teacher training at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco. Her teachings and practice are greatly influenced by the Iyengar, Kripalu, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga styles. Also, she is a movement artist and performs in San Francisco.
Jessica Weiss currently teaches an Anusara inspired Vinyasa flow yoga class at the YMCA in East Palo Alto. Her yoga classes are physically vigorous and emphasize the practice of Yoga both on & off the mat.
Each yoga class is an exploration of where we are at the particular moment – both physically & mentally. And she encourages sthudents to feel deeply in each yoga pose in order to understand their own unique alignment and potential. And although yoga is a serious medicine for general well-being, she suggest that it we don’t limit our ability to laugh and let go.
“Make yoga a dance of life – know when to stop, when to go, and when to let go.
She encourages students to:
- Be their own creators.
- To determine their own stories.
- To dance their own dance.
- And to find happiness in their life & happiness in the live’s of others.
