Yogahour® is an accessible, affordable, expertly-taught flow/form class that offers clear and specific alignment instructions. It is both a teaching technology and a style that is the perfect blend of form (alignment) and flow (movement with the breath). This method maximizes safety and promotes longevity of practice.
Yogahour aims to be the most doable yet difficult one-hour flow/form class offered anywhere. It's for all levels of practitioners, from beginners to experienced students without major injuries.

This workshop is designed to introduce the practice of yogahour and to offer insight into how yogahour teaching technology can equip instructors and practitioners with the tools to add clarity, precision, and depth to their teaching and practice. In sessions 1 and 2, we’ll practice two different yogahour sequences and explore yogahour teaching technology and sequencing strategies. In sessions 3 and 4, we’ll dive deep into an exploration of some of the arm balances and backbends on the yogahour syllabus. In Session 5, we’ll experience and then discuss how yogahour sequences and teaching technology can be adapted and leveraged for vinyasa flow classes.
