Welcome to Yoga with Dreena!
Here I am with the group and our main instructor (extraordinaire!) Lauren Roegele. I feel blessed to have completed training with Lauren and the other instructors and to have made deep connections with this beautiful, inspiring group of women.
The program involved far more than the ‘technical’ part of yoga which I was expecting.
While we learned about anatomy and asanas (the poses), we explored things like restorative yoga, philosophy, history, pregnancy yoga, meditation, and breathwork.
The training also tapped into emotional aspects for everyone involved, especially when we worked on our philosophy art project.
We were asked to come up with our own mantra, and represent it in some way. They weren’t expecting any fancy art project. Still, when it was announced I said “ugh. I didn’t sign up for art“.
While I have an artistic side, art projects are not my thing. I’m not a crafty mom, don’t knit or sew, or even have a proper good glue gun! So, I cringed at the thought of presenting an art project.
When all was said and done, I actually printed off my art design larger than I initially presented, so that I could frame it properly where I do yoga. Here it’s with some special mementos from the class.
Today I post my intro video, sharing more about why I’ve created Yoga with Dreena and what I want to share with you, including:
- time-accessible videos: most will be around 30 minutes so you can more easily find time to bring yoga into your day
- yoga classes that are inclusive, and bring joy into movement along with strength, flexibility, breathing, and some meditation
- giving wrists a break! I explain in my video!
Now, please tell me what you’d also like to see in online classes!
Watch my short video, and share a comment – here or on youtube.
See you on the mat soon… x Dreena
