YGB was founded in 2007 in Los Angeles, determined to find a way for the global yoga community to help the poorest people in the country that gave birth to yoga.

Yoga Daya - Pranayama Workshop

Pranayama Workshop with Tulsi Laher

Friday, February 24, 2017 (6:00-8:00PM)

Pranayama is the art of regulating the breath during inhalation, retention and exhalation. During inhalation we receive the vital energy in the form of breath, during retention the breath is held in order to permeate that energy, and during exhalation all thoughts and emotions are emptied with the breath representing surrender. Regulating the breath helps reduce stress and significantly impacts our sense of well-being. Breathing alters with emotions like fear and anxiety as well as according to life-style and aging. Learning how to consciously control the breath can help train the lungs so that breathing can be made more efficient. Through practicing pranayama you can calm the mind and increase your energy and focus. 'Better breathing means a better and healthier life'.

Suitable for ALL levels of yoga students, beginner and advanced alike.

Tulsi Laher holds an Intermediate Junior II Iyengar yoga certification, and teaches as well as mentors aspiring teachers at Yoga Daya.

Twist and Detox Workshop with Tammy Gitter

Sunday, March 26, 2017 (12:00-2:00PM)

Experience the pure bliss of a good Twist! The key to ecstatic twisting is creating a stable foundation that allows the body to lift and the spine elongate which promotes expansion. A lot of people shy away from twists due to their intimidating appearance, but don't let that keep you from reaping all of the benefits that twists have to offer. We will explore the physiological benefits to the circulatory system and internal organs, structural benefits to the musculoskeletal system, and the subtle and focusing benefits to your body and consciousness.

In this workshop we will go through:

- Some of the different styles and approaches to twisting

- The importance of hip and pelvic stabilization when twisting

- Utilizing the bandhas

- How to go deeper and start binding your twists

- The role of your shoulders and heart

Please know that there will be a warm up involved in this workshop, so come prepared to move. We will end with a guided relaxation and Savasana.

After receiving her 200HR RYT with Yoga Alliance in Vinyasa, Tammy Minton Gitter traveled for seven months with her husband through India, Thailand and Indonesia all the while practicing Ashtanga Yoga with Senior teachers and studying Yogic Philosophy, Meditation, Pranayama and Energetic Healing with Swamis. Tammy is a Reiki 2 practitioner, certified Spiritual Emergence Peer Counselor through Dr. Emma Bragdon at IMHU (Integrative Mental Health University) and is currently enrolled in the Urban Priestess Mystery School with Ashley Turner and Sianna Sherman. Tammy also studies meditation techniques with Sally Kempton. Expect a challenging class that is fun, non-judgemental, interactive, and open to exploring the myriad of ways we show up on our mats.
