As a 22 year practitioner and teacher of Yoga, the benefits I have observed in myself and my clients – both corporate and private – have been tremendous. Workplaces can be stressful regardless of circumstance, but in the world of COVID where many of us are working at a distance and in various forms of isolation, adds increased challenge. I specialize in working within corporate offices to elevate the working environment thru yoga reducing stress and increasing productivity.
The format of these programs can be adapted to the needs of the individual and/or group.
Online classes range from 30 mins to 1h, geared toward all levels of familiarity.
I place particular focus on movement and breath to establish clear thinking, stress reduction, and efficiency.
For local businesses, in person sessions can be arranged when it is deemed safe by the county.
As a teacher-trainer, Sera’s approach is insightful and genuinely holistic. She explains high level concepts with easily relatable, everyday examples. In addition, diverse approaches to yoga are linked in a thoughtful, uniform manner. Her energy and dedication creates a nourishing space that is conducive to learning, encourages questions, and welcomes play and curiosity. As I continue to study with Sera, to learn Yoga with an Ayurvedic perspective, my practice deepens physically, mentally, and spiritually. With each meeting it is clear that her own practice has grown and that she has expanded her study from source information to share whole-heartedly with students and clients. I am sincerely grateful to receive Sera’s guidance.
Her focus on prana, vector mechanics and developing one’s own Inner Wisdom to experience a sattvic (balanced) practice every moment is completely life changing. I feel better educated and empowered to transform every asana practice into a meditative and potentially self-realized one. Most importantly, her blend of Ayurvedic Wisdom with Classical Yoga Theory has enabled me (and others in the class) to better understand our minds, bodies and spirit. For 14 days straight, I never once tore a muscle, over stretched myself or caused any hip/back injuries from over-extending myself.
Sera as a teacher is meticulous, warm, funny, patient and methodical in her approach. Her step-by-step Guidance and instructions enable even a novice like me, to truly grasp the intricacies and nuances of yoga and Ayurveda. I loved every moment of her class. In 10 days, I will take my 200 hour YTT – and I am so grateful that I got to learn with Sera before I do. She’s helped me create a stable and healthy alignment with a healthier approach towards my yoga practice. I believe studying with Sera will provide me a wonderful foundation for my upcoming YTT.
14 days in Será’s Ayurvedic Yoga Immersion seemed to breeze by – and I believe, that, is a sign of a really great class.
The lessons you learn throughout this experience really transcend physical ability, they focus on giving you a solid foundation of knowledge that you will be able to apply to every asana, to almost all types of yoga, as well as to your life off the mat and out in the world.
The program has had a profound positive impact on my life. Sera is brilliant, and she has invested so much into her own education as well as into the service of others. She can translate what might initially be a very intimidating body of knowledge into a framework of understanding that will change the way you perceive the world. Khristine’s amazing and insightful approach helps you to realize the limitations you may be setting on yourself, and how to cultivate compassion for yourself as well as for others.
This is an opportunity to learn to live with intention and conscious action rather than constantly reacting to your environment, and to feel the transformative power that Ayurveda, Pranayama, Asana and a simple awareness of the 8 Limbed Path can afford. I feel confident creating sequences, making adjustments, learning to adapt and constantly evolving as my understanding and practice changes and grows.
There is always more to learn, to master, and I find that the longer I teach the more the lessons continue to sink in, to make sense in new and different ways. I left the program fairly confident as a teacher but with the humble awareness that my yoga path was only just beginning. It’s a beautiful journey to be on and I highly recommend setting any misgivings aside and diving in, the chance to develop your practice alone makes it worth every penny.
