Podcast

Heartfelt Consciousness Podcast

NEW EPISODE EVERY MONDAY
Laura Bender

Yoga first made an appearance in Laura’s life several years ago and as an avid runner, she heard yoga could play a huge part in improving her form, mental control, breathing, flexibility and balance. Over the last few years, she discovered that it’s so much more than that. While her practice has helped her grow stronger and more flexible, it has taught her the importance of mindfulness and gratitude. Yoga inspires Laura to shine from her heart and open up her soul, to be her most authentic self. Laura completed her 200 hour Vinyasa training with Omnipresent Yoga and has gone on to complete her 300 hour training with My Vinyasa Practice as well as several other programs in Yin, Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness Meditation, Mindfulness Coaching, Aromatherapy and Restorative Yoga. In addition, being a Reiki Master allows her to bring a holistic aspect to her classes that help balance the body and mind. Laura is currently an E-RYT 200, RYT 500, and YACEP with Yoga Alliance.

 

Our latest Heartfelt Consciousness Podcast Episode goes LIVE every Monday.

Laura Bender talks with a variety of individuals from fellow yogis, yoga teachers, specialists, and more to share their knowledge and expertise on challenges many of us face today both in and outside of our yoga practice and teachings. Not to mention, the fun and entertaining connections that can happen along the way in our journey! 

Check out Laura’s Heartfelt Consciousness Podcast every Monday for something new!

Ana Pilar Cruz

Ana Pilar Cruz, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, RYT 200, has been teaching yoga in Austin, Texas since 2001 and has been training yoga teachers since 2006 at both 200 and 500 hour levels in the United States and abroad with Yoga Yoga, Global Yoga Shala, and Zingara Yoga. She has been studying with her teacher, Gary Kraftsow, the founder & head of the American Viniyoga Institute, for over 16 years. Under the guidance of Kraftsow, Ana Pilar completed the American Viniyoga Institute’s 500-hour advanced training in 2005. Her continuing education is immersed in a number of specialized areas, including Western & Yogic Anatomy, Injury Prevention, Stress-relief, Mantra chanting, and Tantric philosophy, as she studies with the likes of Leslie Kaminoff, Srivatsa Ramaswami, Donna Farhi, Rod Stryker, and Dr. Douglas Brooks. In 2017 Ana Pilar was grandfathered into the International Association of Yoga Therapist, receiving her C-IAYT designation in recognition of her specialized client work in adaptive structural therapeutics.  As a senior teacher trainer she excels in teaching asana, pranayama, mantra, and yogic philosophy & literature. 

Viniyoga is a traditional lineage of yoga that adapts the practice of yoga to the unique conditions, needs and interests of each individual student. By using dynamic movement, repetition-and-stay and breath-centric asana, each class will offer adaptations in both asana and breath to allow the students to individualize their experience for their own transformation. Props are not needed, but are useful.

INTEGRATING MUSIC

MVP Community Offering | December 2nd | 7PM – 8PM  CST
Vanisha Weatherspoon

Vanisha is an RYT 500 and native of Killeen, TX. She began her yoga journey when she began taking classes in Austin after making her way there for school/ work. Her love for yoga truly developed when she began law school in Washington, DC. Law students are at heightened risk for alcoholism, drug abuse, anxiety and depression, so she looked to yoga to help her avoid falling victim to one of the former. It was here on her yoga mat where she discovered true happiness and peace, which led her to want to bring this to her law school community, but also others.

 

Want to learn more about how to integrate music into your teaching classes and personal practice? Especially when offering this to practitioners, whether in-person or through live stream, there are some points to consider, that Vanisha (RYT500) will be happy to explain and ponder on with you.

This event will include a guided meditation, a lecture portion, and a short slow-flow yoga class followed by time for journaling and a community share circle.
