It’s a new year and time to embrace 2022 with health, happiness, and wholeness in mind. Invest in yourself and join Bala Yoga for the 2022 New Year, New You. This course is open to yoga teachers and practitioners alike, designed for all levels. We will cover eastern healing modalities and yoga in conjunction with the current astrological weather.

There will be daily lectures complemented by extended practice Yin (relaxing passive static stretching) practices with group acupuncture (you can elect not to be the acupuncture).

Your hosts will be Anne Gordon from Atha Wellness, a licensed acupuncture physician and 200-hour RYT in power vinyasa, and Bala’s own Ali Valdez, a 500-RYT and certified astrologer. Together, they represent over 15,000 training hours and hands-on expertise in their respective fields and yoga.

Counts towards 8 hours of Yoga Alliance Continued Education.
