Happening NOW- @26and2hotyoga  #teachtoheal
Yogi’s:  Everyone in our yoga community is invited to participate in a very special live yoga class on Sunday at 3pm EDT called Stretch Across America. This class will be co-led by over a dozen hot yoga studio owners and teachers across the country using Zoom.  Our Intention:  As a large connected community of conscious beings across the US, we can move together and create an influence of peace, health, and creative possibility in the world, at a time when the world really needs it.  Style Of Yoga:  We will instruct the Original 26+2 Series style of yoga. This is a multi-teacher class, meaning each co-host teacher will lead a few of the 26 postures. The class will be primarily led through verbal instruction, not demonstration.  Facebook Event:  Search for the FB Event page for the 411 about the class!! How To Join The Class:  Tune in to the FB Event Page before 3pm on Sunday April 12th to get the Zoom link.  There is no fee or donation to participate. All you need is a free Zoom account (on your computer or device), your yoga mat, and a perhaps the most important thing... a positive mindset and intention for peace, health, and creative possibility in the world.  See you there yogi’s!!
We’ll see you tonight in dream space.  Link in profile. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #meditation  #dreamspace  #rajayogaacademy

Thank You For The Amazing Teachers

I've had a dozen teachers go off to Bikram Yoga teacher training over the years - but have never had them come back so ready, enthusiastic, optimistic, and happy as our RYA graduates. It really proves that a person doesn't have to be beaten down - lifting up works better. Thank you, thank you, thank you Craig and Raja Yoga Academy. Please keep doing what you're doing.

Blessings, Elizabeth Weber - Corvallis Oregon Bikram Yoga (est. 2002)
