Lana is a traveling yoga teacher, kirtan artist, and facilitator in teacher training programs. She discovered yoga at the age of 15 and dabbled in many styles. In 2004 she fell in love with the richness of the Jivamukti Yoga practice and in 2009 completed her 300 Hour Jivamukti training at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York.
Later that year she studied Yin Yoga with Tracey Soghrati, a 40 hour certification. She continues to study with many inspiring yogis including Sarah Powers, David Life, and Sharon Gannon, and the radiant community of Toronto.
As a teacher, Lana strives to offer a safe and nourishing space for students. Her classes are a mix of expressive asana, stillness, and philosophy. Also an actor and musician, Lana merges her love for Sanskrit and song with the practice of kirtan (call and response chanting).
Lana has recorded two albums: Invocation (2013) and Reverence (2017). She loves to travel to communities around the world sharing the magic of mantra!
Saturday 4:45-6:30PM Yin: Nourishing the Heart
Sunday 11:14AM-1:00PM Vinyasa Pulse: Flow to the Beat of a Drum
Yin: Nourishing the Heart with Lucas Tensen (cello). Summer is the season of fire, and in Traditional Chinese Medicine relates to the organ of the Heart. Yin Yoga is a practice that allows us to slow down and turn inward. Poses are done close to the floor and are held for 2-5 minutes. In these long passive holds we affect change in our connective tissue, have an opportunity to practice mindfulness, and give ourselves a mini acupressure session. We will focus on poses that nourish the energy pathways of the Heart and Small Intestine organ pairing tapping into joy and compassion. Cool down and embrace stillness!
Vinyasa Pulse: Flow to the Beat of a Drum. Join Lana and Narada for a Jivamukti-inspired practice with live drumming. A creative and expressive flow that will strengthen, open, and inspire. Expect a merging of mantra, movement, and music!
