through the body, connect to soul

Asana Intensive

This class is taught by:

Megan Piersma

ERYT500, YACEP & Founder of Deha Yoga
Megan found yoga in college in 2003 and has been consistently practicing ever since. Her practice on the mat has been incredibly fulfilling in that it requires a constantly shifting perspective of the physical body. But it was her practice OFF the mat that guided her to open Deha Yoga in February of 2016. Megan received her 200-hour training in 2011 and completed her 300-hour training with Semperviva Yoga College in Vancouver, BC in early 2017. She gives gratitude to the many teachers that have helped inform her style: Bernie Clark's Yin Yoga, Judith Hanson Lasater's Restorative Yoga, Gurmukh and Gloria Latham's Kundalini Yoga, Adyashanti's True Meditation, Clara Roberts-Oss and Janet Stone's Vinyasa Yoga, Shelley Christopherson and Dr. Katy Komenda's Sanskrit for Yogis, Tiad and Surya Little's Prajna Yoga Style and so SO many more. Megan pulls on many styles, sources and lineages in her classes and requires much of her students – that they support their bodies, train their minds and connect to their own personal source of power. You will sing, dance, shake, cry, move, learn, settle, surrender, breathe, laugh and allow. Megan encourages you to be unconditionally curious in all that you do.
This practice will involve exploring a broad range of movements in order to create ideal alignment, stability and strength within the chosen set of postures for the day. Each Sunday we'll explore one particular set of postures such as twists, seated poses, standing poses, balancing, inversions or reclined postures. Each class will be well-balanced and will give you an opportunity to dive a bit deeper into the chosen asana (postures) set, discovering smarter and more sustainable ways to express them. Consider this class to be a mini-workshop each week as we will utilize the wall, chairs and a variety of props to really get a different perspective. Let's go on a yoga adventure! This class is not appropriate for the beginning yogi as we will explore a variety of more advanced postures. 75-80 degrees.
