COST: $30/ Single Class

This is your unique chance to experience a bit of our yoga teacher training advanced practice curriculum. Each session will focus on a different theme, with each sequence expertly tailored to explore that weekend’s lessons.

This class will focus on back bending and seated poses. Back bends can be intimidating to approach in a one hour class. Teachers and students have so little time to focus on the basics. This class will break down some of your most…and least favorite backbends and make them accessible no matter where you practice. At the end of class we will take a longer than usual seated practice to focus on the alignment of seated postures.

Let Virginia Allain, RYT 500, guide you on an exploration to grow and deepen your yoga practice through a series of 2 hour advanced practices. Along side our 2019 Yoga Teacher Trainees, you’ll find inspiration and challenge, the opportunity to grow and learn, and a feeling of being connected as one through our joint experience of practice.


Virginia's yoga teaching style is heavily rooted in alignment-based asana and she encourages the use of props when necessary. Providing her students with a safe space to slow down and breathe deeply. Her approach is to teach individual bodies as they are in the moment, in their perfect nature; rather than the collective, forcing each student to look the same. She sees each body as something unique and strives to provide a positive experience, where each student is able to realize their highest self. She is an Advanced SmartFLOW graduate and continues to study with her teacher, Annie Carpenter. She has also studied with yoga teachers Richard RosenLeslie Kaminoff, Tiffany Russo, Trudy Goodman, Dr. John Casey, Cain Carroll, Mary Kay West, and Desi Barlett.
