A workshop with Adi Carter
Saturday, October 25th
$25 door / $20 by October 18th
With Emphasis on Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Alignment-Oriented Yoga, and Spiritually Oriented Yoga
Our 200-hour registered teacher training program exceeds the requirements set by the Yoga Alliance. Our primary focus is on the teaching of Vinyasa Flow Yoga, but we draw from many yogic disciplines, including but not limited to Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga. We offer a thorough and well-rounded yoga education — from our careful attention to anatomy and alignment to the study of yogic scriptures to the incorporation of a Seva (or selfless service) component. We see yoga as a holistic approach to life that benefits body, mind, spirit and community.

Have you been able to take a class with our Michael Gould yet? He is a dedicated, conscientious, and humble yogi whose lighthearted and melodic delivery is disarming, lulling, and motivating all at once.
We asked him a few questions recently about what makes him tick.
Q: What initially drew you to the practice of yoga?
A: I have always been interested in physical fitness, and for years I was an avid runner, biker, and swimmer, and found these activities to be very beneficial. But as a criminal defense lawyer doing trial work in New York City since the early 80’s, I realized that I also needed a way to reduce some of the stress in my life. In the later part of the 1990’s, I was getting lots of hip pain and knee pain from my workouts, and was told by orthopedists that I would have to think about hip and knee replacements, and I was not trying to hear any of that! so I tried yoga, first Yogazone VHS tapes of Lisa Bennett and Charles Matkin, and Bryan Kest’s Power Yoga tapes, because I was afraid to show my face at a live yoga class. Once I got hip to the lingo and the poses I finally went to a class in Brooklyn with my good friend Laura who already was an experienced yogi, and I was hooked. I loved the flow from one asana to the next, sometimes speeding it up to make it more cardio, get a real sweat, sometimes moving slowly and mindfully, making it so strong, paying attention to the breath and the intricacies of the pose. I saw the great value in both approaches. I found myself getting so much stronger and in control of my body, and found a natural flexibility that was so cool and inspiring, and I found my stress level going way down to help me in my crazy work. And guess what? no more knee pain, no more hip pain! Inevitably I moved to the more spiritual aspects of the practice, and to a regular meditation practice, which has helped me be comfortable and calm, regardless of the “vicissitudes of the hurlyburly” (as Iyengar has put it).
I found my stress level going way down to help me in my crazy work.
