Week 1! Practice practice Practice!!

Last week-end, the first one of my yoga teacher training, Tamal said that we need to take at least 3 classes per week, and keep a kind of journal, with all the observations and comments about how the teacher was actually teaching the class, the theme of it….
I’m in LA one of the best (if not the best) city in the West for Yoga, and there are so many great teachers in this town that I’ve decided to take their class, to learn from the best!

It all started on Sunday night, after the training with a well deserved Yin yoga class, by Amy at Yoga Salt (www.yogasalt.com) What is Yin yoga: Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time—five minutes or longer per pose is typical. (Source: Wikipedia). It really helps to open your body and relax. And, oh boy, Amy knows how to let you go deeper in the pose and relax. She even gives you massage while you’re holding it. It’s pure bliss!

And then I discovered that the world famous Shiva Rea was in town. I already took a class with her last year, and enjoyed it, so I’ve decided to take every class she was teaching during the week.
Who is Shiva Rea: She is the founder of Prana Vinyasa Flow Yoga, an energetic, creative, full-spectrum approach to embodying the flow of yoga, and she is just amazing. Her classes are unique. Breating and moving are the key of her class, which is great because one of the first thing we learned at the training was how to breathe properly. It’s so important. Well, Shiva takes the breathing to another level and it’s quite amazing. Her classes are very spiritual and intense. I liked it so much that I registered for an other training with her after this one. I told you I want to learn from the best!!

My body might be sore after all those classes but my heart is light, and that’s why I’m happy to start the second week-end of my training!

Stay tuned!

Namaste!

SmartFLOW yoga teacher. I've studied Power vinyasa, restorative, and yoga for pregnant woman with Tamal Dodge in Los Angeles. After that wonderful time, I felt attracted by movement and flow, so I studied with Shiva Rea for 300 hours her Prana Flow style. But after a yoga for scoliosis workshop and after realizing what I want in my practice and for my students, I've decided to focus on a more alignment focused yoga, and started studying with the great Annie Carpenter. Now, after more than 400h with her, my teaching skills had changed for the best. The more I learn the more I have to share with my students, so I follow different trainings every year and I had the great honor to learn from amazing teachers like Krista Cahill, Maty Ezraty or Dona Holleman. I'm now teaching SmartFLOW YOGA, Hatha yoga, restorative yoga and chair yoga (for people with less range of motion) in Monaco most of the time, but also in some magical events such as Burning Man in Nevada. http://instagram.com/cheyenneyoga/ Ambassador of a great VEGAN BOOTS BRAND pawj california, think cruelty free Ugg style boots.
