MVP Yoga Run
Community Fitness | Saturdays | 10 AM
Shayne recently moved to Austin, TX and has taught yoga since 2017. She began her journey teaching group fitness classes at her alma mater Elon University, NC. Her favorite classes to teach there were Equipment Pilates, YogaHIIT, Power Vinyasa and Yin yoga. Since 2017, she has grown to love the spiritual and healing aspects of yoga as well as the power and strength training components. She is now a 200-hr RYT, and is currently waiting to sit for her ACE GFI, as well as being one week away from her certificate in trauma-Informed yoga healing. She is also an online health and wellness coach for 1st Phorm. She loves to de-stress by taking runs along Town Lake, and doing SUP yoga on the water afterwards.
Join us every Saturday morning outside our Austin studio for a free group run followed by donation-based yoga inside!
Meet on the lawn in front of the My Vinyasa Practice studio at 10 am for a 1.5 mile run/jog/power walk around central Austin, led by Shayne Cerebe! Shayne is an excellent motivator, and will keep your spirits high while you get your heart rate up! At 10:30, meet back at the studio for donation-based yoga to cool down and reconnect.
Vedic Astrology Workshop
Live Stream Workshop | November 21, 2020 | 9 AM – 3 PM
Christine Rodriguez is an Ashtanga yoga teacher, Vinyasa teacher, Vedic astrologer, and social worker. Christine came to the practice of yoga as a rock climber looking for methods of injury prevention. After her first ashtanga yoga class, it completely took over her life – and the rest is history! Christine has traveled to Mysore, India to study ashtanga yoga with Saraswathi Jois and has devoted countless hours to practice and mentorship under teachers in order to learn the art of adjustments. In addition, she is a certified Vedic astrologer and completed her Masters in Social Work from the University of Texas in 2020. Christine believes that healing involves the mental, emotional, and physical body – and that yoga has the capacity to tap into all three. It’s an honor to hold space for class and she is deeply humbled by her students.
In this workshop we will discuss the difference between western and Vedic astrology, what Vedic astrology is, and how to begin deciphering a natal birth chart. This workshop is geared for beginners, with no previous training on astrology or Vedic astrology. However, even if you’re a seasoned astrologer, you’ll have an opportunity to connect with like minded individuals, brush up on your skills, and will probably learn something new! The information in this course is intended to make you competent in understanding the signs, planets, and houses and how to begin properly interpreting a birth chart.
This course will include:
- Thorough information on the houses, signs, and planets
- The difference between western and Vedic astrology
- How to synthesize knowledge of planets, houses, and signs into a proper interpretation
- The possible use of YOUR individual birth chart as an example to learn on! (mini readings!)
Workshop details: This is a live stream workshop. The link to join will be sent after registration. Investment: $25.

Mala Making Workshop

Christine roots her classes in body awareness, acceptance, and accessibility. Her teaching philosophy is centered around the ideas that every body is unique, every pose is an opportunity to learn something about yourself, and every challenge is a chance to show yourself compassion. Christine offers a down to earth teaching style that honors every individual. Christine was introduced to mala making when she herself took a workshop a few years back. She’s been sharing the art ever since.
