Yoga Teachers Association Hosts “Ayurveda and Yoga” with Deirdre Breen

February 10, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.




Deirdre Breen

Yoga Teachers Association (YTA) of the Hudson Valley will present Ayurveda and Yoga: integrating the Twin Sciences on the Mat and in our lives, with Deirdre Breen, on February 10, at Club Fit in Briarcliff Manor.

Practitioners of yoga value balance (sattva) as a way of life and strive to have that balance radiate out into their lives, families, communities and environment. Doing so requires being able to quickly assess when something is out of balance and have the tools, both on and off the mat, to reestablish sattva.

in this workshop, Breen will demonstrate how pranayama, asana and meditative practices affect the doshas—kapha (earth and water), pitta (water and fire) and vata (air and ether)—and the gunas, or qualities of sattva (balance), rajas (action) and tamas (inertia). Individuals will gain an understanding of their prakriti (constitutional) and vrikriti (lifestyle) doshas and how yoga’s multi-limbed approach can reestablish balance when we are out of sorts.

Breen is an ISHtA-certified master yoga teacher who has been dedicated to health and healing for 35 years. Her training at Duke Integrative Medicine, which emphasized that behavior change is at the root of health and healing, led her to develop dosha Coaching, which blends health coaching, yoga, ayurveda, meditation and addiction recovery.

The workshop will be held at the Yoga studio at Club Fit, 584 North State Road, Briarcliff Manor, on February 10, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. The cost is $45 for YTA members and $65 for nonmembers who register in advance, or $55 and $75 at the door. Preregistration at YtaYoga.com is requested. ample parking is available. Participants should bring a yoga mat and plan to arrive early to check in and set up.
