Yoga for Total Health
Grace Osora Erhart (RYT 500) brings her deep love for yoga and decades of experience to the mat. For Grace, yoga is a meditation in motion, and the physical aspects, though important, are simply a vehicle for personal growth and present -moment awareness. Putting special emphasis on pranayam (breathing exercises), she guides her classes through an energy clearing physical practice so that her students feel more balanced, stable and alive. "Each class begins with intention," explains Grace. "We come to the present moment so we are guided to approach each movement with respect and genuine connection with our bodies."
Grace's yoga training began at Kripalu thirty years ago, and she has since integrated her many talents into her teaching, including her roles as a Registered Nurse, Licensed Massage Therapist, and Level Three Dream Teacher in the Robert Moss School of Active Dreaming and Relax and Renew (R) level one trainer. she has studied with teachers such as Amrit Desai, Tom Gilette, Judith Lasater, Michael Lee and many more as it’s always important to be a student. She holds certifications in Vinyasa, Phoenix Rising Yoga, Meditation Instruction, and is a level 2 Reiki Practitioner.
Active Dreaming is a magnificent tool to enhance our experience of life, giving us more power to manifest and create a life with true health, body and spirit. SEE THE "DREAM PAGE"
SCROLL DOWN FOR CLASSES****
Active Dreaming is a compliment to yoga practice as we touch upon our greater self. That which is multidimensional, that which is more than our physical body. In the study of our sleep dreams or awake journeys using shamanic drumming as fuel, we conciousley explore all parts of our consciousness, very much like the "koshas" (5 sheaths of our Self) described in the yoga Upanishads.
