Sep 02, 2017 08:44PM

The Yoga Teachers Association of the Hudson Valley (YTA) has announced its lineup of instructors and topics for its 2017-18 season. Todd Norian, master yogi and founder of Ashaya Yoga, will kick off the season on September 9 with Tantra Yoga: Alignment Refinement for Body, Mind, and Heart. The workshop will be followed by YTA’s annual Prana Party, featuring kirtan with Norian. This is an opportunity open to all to connect with yoga teachers and other yoga enthusiasts from the tri-state area; light refreshments will be served.

The season will continue in October with Tzahi Moskovitz and Traction Action, a workshop on how to use a yoga strap in poses (both sitting and standing), backbends and inversions to modify or deepen a yoga practice. This will be followed by Ken Nelson and Lesli Lang’s Transformational Teaching in November and Dynamic Gentle Yoga with Rudy Peirce in December.

Workshops in 2018 will be led by Patty Holmes, Deirdre Breen, Shari Friedrichsen, Priti Robyn Ross and Vandita Kate Marchesiello; they will cover topics such as yoga and the heart, the koshas, and the twin sciences of yoga and
Ayurveda. The season will close out with beloved yogini Tao Porchon-Lynch
on June 30, 2018.

The workshops take place on Saturdays from 1:30 to 4:30pm at Club Fit in Briarcliff Manor, New York. They are open to members and non-members.

YTA is an educational nonprofit run by volunteers. Membership is open to studio owners, yoga teachers and individual practitioners. Workshops are usually held on the second Saturday of the month and are $45 for members, $65 for nonmembers in advance. Continuing education credits are available for all workshops.
