If you missed the Yoga Journal Conference or Wanderlust this year, no worries. Famed yoga and alignment guru Alison West is hosting a dream team of top instructors at Yoga Union’s Vinyasa Week in mid August.
The week, which takes place in New York City from August 12 to 16, will feature city yoga stars like Isaac Pena, Matt Giordano, Breakti founder Anya Porter, Bikram champ Jared McCann, and West herself. Not to mention popular yogis who aren’t currently on a studio schedule—like Raghunath.
Each instructor will lead a three-hour session—such as “Sequencing From Your Core” and “Refining Advanced Transitions”—that includes a 60-minute vinyasa sequence followed by a teaching practice where participants will discuss sequence, language cues, and adjustments. (The week is geared towards teachers, but anyone with at least two years of yoga experience is welcome.)
It’s like summer school for yogis. You’ll just need a mat instead of a pencil case. —Lisa Elaine Held
