Ravi Singh

The Yoga Teachers Association of the Hudson Valley will kick off its 2019-20 workshop season on September 14 with Yoga Therapeutics Through a Kundalini Lens, led by California-based master yogi Ravi Singh. Immediately following the workshop will be YTA’s annual Prana Party, which welcomes anyone to come connect with yoga teachers and other yoga enthusiasts from the tri-state area. Light refreshments will be served. The season will continue in October with Yoga for Scoliosis, with New York City’s Alison West. In November, Daniel Orlansky will teach Flowing into Wholeness, a mix of yoga and qigong, and in December, Sandra Anderson will lead an exploration of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Other workshops will cover topics such as the yoga nidra, yoga for pain relief, mudras, and the three pillars of Ashtanga yoga. Beloved “101-years-young” yogini Tao Porchon-Lynch will close out the season on June 13, 2020.

         In addition to its regular workshops, the YTA will hold its second annual retreat at Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Yoga for a Radiant Heart, Body and Mind, with Todd Norian, will take place October 25-27.

         YTA is an educational nonprofit run by volunteers. Membership is open to studio owners, yoga teachers and individual practitioners. Its monthly workshops are usually held every second Saturday, 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., at Club Fit in Briarcliff Manor, at a cost of $45 (members) or $65 (nonmembers) in advance. Continuing education credits are available for all workshops.
