When we soften, move with ease, listen to how we feel, and respond, we create space. When we do this together, we gain support, encouragement, friends, cheerleaders, and often collaborators in future endeavors. It’s my honor of a lifetime to lead groups of great people from different backgrounds and experiences from all around the world, in this practice of yoga and leading with ease that we call Strala.
This workshop is a great moment to reset your whole self. Whether you’re a teacher, a coach, guide, care giver, student, a long-time yogi or first time on a mat, everyone is welcome. You deserve to feel better in your yoga practice, and in every moment of your life. Creating a foundation of softness, moving peacefully and easily, is healing for yourself and those around you. Moving through this practice in a way that feels like you is a foundation for feeling fully alive, and comfortable with who you are. It also creates space for those around you to achieve the same.
You’ll discover the practical foundations of softness, breath-body connection, and harmony, grounded in the movement and healing foundations of tai chi, so you can release stress and bring more ease into your life, even when things get tough.
For every style of yoga, tai chi, fitness, and well-being practice, we’ll share how you can carry these highly-effective foundations into all that you love practicing.
For existing teachers, guides and coaches, you’ll renew a sense of confidence, avoid burnout by dropping bad habits, and shift toward a sustainable way of leading that you and the people you lead feel great about.
We all deserve to feel better. I’m so thrilled to do this together.

“Strala is an elegantly simple and sophisticated way to move our breath, our body, and our whole self into the state we need, to create who we want to be: the optimal expression of ourselves.”
– Dr. Rudolph Tanzi – Chair of Neurology at Harvard and Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital
What’s in this Workshop
We have a whole day together, for a wonderful immersion in moving with harmony, grace, and ease. You’ll discover how to help your body and mind stay relaxed, even in the midst of challenge. From relaxed, our energy flows easily, we’re able to feel, and can move creatively and inspiringly wherever we go.
We’ll begin with an uplifting class and meditation, and end with a super-relaxing wind down, to leave you feeling wonderfully refreshed and renewed. And with our time in between, we’ll share practical everyday details, approaches, and more practices for making all this real in your life.
We can accomplish so much by giving ourselves a little time each day to slow down, feel what we feel, and respond in a way that makes things better, right now. Imagine how powerful it is when we discover it’s possible to carry this always, into every moment, in everything we do. Even when things get tough, we can find a way to make here better, and make it better to be here. It’s the practice of a lifetime, and we’ll share the practical foundations together here.
This workshop is a curve back toward your most natural self, and time for you to gain what you specifically need at this moment in your life. Whether you’re craving some time just for yourself, a jump-start to your passion, insight for your practice or leading, entering a new phase of life, or simply feel the urge to be here for a reason you’re unable to articulate yet, you are invited to lean in here. I’m so happy we get to share in these practices together now.
Who Is This For
Everything we do is designed to help people begin where they are, and develop the concrete practices that carry us where we want to go. So wherever you are is a perfect place to begin. This is true for all of our courses, including this online training.
The people joining our trainings, worskhops, and retreats are a wonderfully diverse and inspiring group. They range from 16 to over 80. They’re from dozens of countries worldwide. They are entrepreneurs and chief executives, professors and librarians, scientists and researchers, studio owners and fitness instructors, yoga teachers of every style, psychologists and physiotherapists, life and health coaches, doctors and lawyers. They are moms and dads, daughters and sons, and lifelong friends.
Some are relative beginners, some are long-time practicers and teachers. Some want to teach, and some want to progress with their own yoga. Wherever you are now is a great place to begin. We’re lucky to have this rich diversity, it makes wonderful ground for real-world learning and sharing.
You might join for your profession, for teaching yoga or tai chi, or you might join just for you. Whatever your purpose, we have this time to share a set of holistic skills and practices, that carry across your everything you do.
How It Works
All our trainings, workshops, and retreats have a unique curriculum that’s different from what’s covered in other intensive, 100, 200, and 500 hour programs. So what you learn here will be all new approaches, practices, and skill-sets, and makes a nice continuation from any previous studies with Strala or anywhere, without repetition. You’ll always discover new ways to take good care of yourself, find harmony and ease in your body and life, and give this to the people you lead.
All this begins with you. You’re always leading what have, how you are, in everything you do. It’s in how you get around a room, how you get around your life, that people follow. Much more than what you say.
And it’s wonderful, magical, when what you say agrees with what you do. So we’re coming together here to share this as a practice. To create the ground we all need to be how we want to be, first in our selves, and then for each other.
It’s not always complicated, but it’s also not easy. It takes some slowing down, simplifying, subtracting the noise around us and in us. From here we see where we are, and discover who it is we’re meant to be. What are you good at? What do you love? It’s in these simple practices to find this, and grow stronger, more capable, in who we really are.
The unique set of skills you develop – for connecting with yourself and others, unblocking your energy, healing what needs healing and accomplishing challenge with ease – uncovers your ability to create the life you want, and be an inspiring leader to the people around you.
