Lori Snyder, E-RYT, infuses her Vinyasa classes with a heartfelt joy for the way this practice can help remind us of who we truly are…as well as with a mix of rockin’ music. She has studied with her primary teacher, Max Strom, since 1996, and is happily indebted to her first teacher, Steve Ross, for showing her you were allowed to turn up the music and laugh during yoga. Lori’s classes are known for intelligent sequencing, philosophies of kindness, and eclectic soundtracks.

 Sara Falugo began practicing yoga at Brian Kest's Power Yoga in Santa Monica more than ten years ago. In 2006 she trained with the beloved Don and Amba Stapleton, receiving her teacher's certification in Interdisciplinary Yoga from the Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica. The following year she completed the Tibetan Heart Yoga Series 4 training in Tucson, AZ. After having spent six years traveling, meditating, studying and teaching, Sara has settled back into the Venice/Marina area.

 
Her classes are gentle and meditative, and it is her intention to hold a space for all who are practicing to tune into the present moment in a loving and non-judgmental manor and to align with their highest selves.

Big Island Bikram Retreat - awaken what was once lost

Lucas Miles and Cheryl Grivell

May 24, 2014 - May 30, 2014

big island bikram

About the Facilitator(s)

Lucas Miles - Senior Bikram Teacher

Lucas has taught full time for 10 years, owned his own studio in New York city for 4 years, and spent time directly with Bikram, working closely with him and other senior teachers over the course of a dozen Bikrams teacher training programs and a couple of advanced seminars as well. Lucas will go in depth on breath work, philosophy and directional movement in class as well as in the posture clinics. I believe that Bikram yoga is a powerful transformational tool. Transformation does not require anything complex or fancy, exclusive or elite. It is a process that we all have available to ourselves, should we have the courage to utilize powerful tools like Bikram yoga in an honest way. It is my aim to facilitate this process with every student I meet, in whatever way serves that student the most. I am certain that along the way we can have some laughs and enjoy the world around us also!

Cheryl Grivell

Cheryl will bring 10 years teaching experience in Bikram yoga as well as Hawaiian chanting.  Owning a studio and helping to coach yoga competitors of all levels,  she will share with you alignment, connection and expression.  With a open mind we will explore the 84 hatha postures to add to your foundational practice.  Hawaiian chanting has been a passion of hers since she was 18.  Chanting is a great way to build prana, and break though self doubt and expression.  With her guidance and grace you will be able to see your true potential on your mat and in your life.
