Teaching from the Heart: Grow Your Classes Through Authenticity and Connection
with Liza Bertini
Are you struggling to grow your following and class attendance? As teachers we have the opportunity to embody the very things we teach – to be authentic and to share from our hearts our purpose and passion, and to inspire others to do the same. When we teach with intention it elevates the impact of our classes and inspires students to awaken to their own potential. In this workshop we will explore our motivation as teachers, uncover our purpose and authentic expression and how we can use it to connect to our students on a deeper level and ultimately grow our yoga communities.

Creating a New Normal: Slow, Simple, and Soulful


at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, Stockbridge, MA
Sunday - Tuesday, March 1 - 3, 2020
with Liza Bertini and Michelle Dalbec

Registration Opening Soon!

Does life normally feel like it is too chaotic and complicated, often full of endless to-do’s that have little meaning? It is easy to forget that we have the power to make choices that can create a life that feeds the soul. Join Michelle and Liza as they share simple, everyday practices that will support well-being of mind, body, and soul. Take time to slow down, reflect on what really matters to you, and nourish your soul in this retreat dedicated to self-care, simplicity, and mindfulness.

 In this program you will

  • Find ease and connection through meditation, yoga nidra, and group discussion.

  • Move and open the body through gentle and restorative yoga.

  • Learn self-care practices and tips for living slowly, simply, and soulfully.

  • Increase self-awareness through visualization, reflection and journaling.

  • Create a personal self-care plan and meaningful rituals to take home with you. 

Return home feeling refreshed, energized, and empowered to create a new normal for yourself!

Meandering footpaths connect the restored rustic lodge, barns and cottages, all converted into comfortable accommodations.
