California Yoga and Meditation Workshops with Alyse Speyer San Francisco Los Angeles

New California Workshop Tour in San Francisco and Los Angeles

Cultivate Awareness and Creativity through Meditation

Meditation is an experience that help us cultivate awareness. This form of mental training allows us to understand our thoughts, emotions, and urges as well as how to balance them. We begin to unveil immense detail about ourselves and our reactions, while simultaneously fostering creativity, kindness, and acceptance.

These experiences also help us improve other areas of daily life, including yoga, running, sports, work, and conflict resolution. In this meditation workshop, you will learn how to define meditation for yourself as well as learn techniques to work toward positive transformation through mindfulness, breath-work, and meditation.

All levels welcome, including beginners!

Strength vs. Flexibility Adapting Yoga to Your Body

Yoga creates balance in mind and body on a highly individual level. To achieve this balance, yoga promotes strength equally as much as flexibility. It is not a one-size-fits-all system. For us to independently achieve mental and physical transformation, we focus on cultivating a yoga practice centered on conscious movement and breath.

This yoga workshop will provide you with critical insight into your body and developing your own practice, helping you to approach each posture to suit your mental and physical needs based on your body, lifestyle, and goals.

All levels welcome, including beginners!

The Core Elements of Yoga ― Breath, Bandhas, and Drishti

What is Yoga? This yoga workshop is designed to help you define Yoga for yourself and understand its origins and benefits using the simplest, yet most powerful, techniques. If you are interested in learning more about the non-physical aspects of Ashtanga Yoga as well as looking for a way to gain a deeper knowledge and foundation for your yoga practice, you will benefit from this workshop.

There are eight limbs of Yoga in the Ashtanga Vinyasa system. In this workshop, you will also learn how to energize and focus your mind and body through pranayama (life force) techniques that will help you successfully connect mind, body, and breath for physical and mental transformation.
