Denver Sun.Com 05-02-2013
Denver, CO – Heritage Yoga School in Denver opened its studio to the public last month.
To mark the occasion, the school is offering free yoga sessions to the public during the months of February and March.
“We’re proud of our beautiful new studio,” Heritage School Director Jennifer Sprague said Tuesday. “We built it with you in mind. We wanted a place for you to escape into your mind and body with a soft quiet atmosphere. It’s a perfect space to share with people of similar mind and goals."
“At Heritage, we believe yoga should be affordable. We plan to offer unlimited free sessions in February and March. Our regular price for yoga classes is $5 per class, but for the next two months everyone is welcome to unlimited free yoga. We also make advanced yoga training affordable. Yoga Teacher Training at Heritage is just $995, and includes five independent 3-week courses.”
Drop-ins, the school says, are welcome, but advanced reservations are encouraged. For reservations, visit the school’s website for yoga training (http://www.heritage-education.com/denver-yoga-teacher-training.htm)
Heritage College is a Yoga Alliance approved school and offers Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) courses. These same courses have been approved by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as continuing education courses. The courses are designed for students who want to incorporate yoga teaching as part of their career, or for students who simply want to achieve a deeper level of yoga understanding and mastery.
Yoga teacher training at Heritage consists of five independent 3-week courses. The courses cost $199 each ($995 total). All books are included in the tuition.
The five individual courses have been recognized by Yoga Alliance and students who successfully complete all courses can apply to be recognized as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT-200). These courses make good continuing education and/or professional development course options for personal trainers, physical therapists, massage therapists, occupational therapists, and other wellness practitioners.
“Our training offers depth, beauty, mindfulness and mastery of the yogic path,” said lead yoga instructor Jenn Stewart. “Yoga is a workout that unites the body, mind and spirit. That’s why we stress reading bodies, physically and emotionally, as well as assessing the energy of a group or individual."
“Our students learn to sequence asanas (yoga poses) in a fluid manner and unite breath with movement. The curriculum emphasizes alignment and how to avoid injuries, as well as development of strategies for encouraging and inspiring practitioners.”
The science of yoga and study of the mind/body connection offers practitioners physiological, psychological, and biochemical benefits that can awaken a more conscious life in our modern world. If you are ready to take your practice to the next level, visit the school's website at http://www.heritage-education.com/denver-yoga-teacher-training.htm.”
Heritage lead yoga instructor, Jenn Stewart is an experienced registered yoga teacher, (E-RYT-200), with Yoga Alliance and has been teaching Yoga since 2006 and practicing since 1998. Drawing from several different forms of Yoga, Jenn challenges her students to learn about their bodies and understand that there are no limitations, just different expressions of the poses. Each class will have a different theme and focus so that all students of all levels can connect with their divine centers, grow from the roots of alignment and flow with intensity and grace.
