Off the Mat & Into your Life

with Tori Greising

We all know that we can’t simply “go to yoga.”  Yoga is a way of life!  Yet, pulls of society can take us straight from who we are on our mat to the unrecognizable. It seems as though the chaos of our surroundings can be a slippery slope away from the lessons we learn while we're practicing. 

In this lifestyle workshop, Tori focuses the conversation around all of our practices - on and off the mat.  Not a one-size-fits-all, this workshop is about exploring and uncovering how to live YOUR yoga off the mat.

Find the Pause

with tori g. newburn, 500 e-ryt

GoGoGo…! This continual humm of energy is often what leads us to our mat. We search desperately to find an escape, a reset, a moment of not going, but rather just being.

As teachers, we can find it difficult to hold space for our students as, even in class, we attempt to fill every moment. As students, we can find it difficult to turn off our day and enter our practice.

In this weekend workshop, Tori will share skills for successfully finding that vital “pause” in your personal practice, in your classes and in your life.
