Labor Day weekend beckons us to leave behind the lazy days of summer and welcome the comfort of routine. Join Dorinda for an extended yoga practice experience that will ease the transition of summer to fall. Take this time to get to know your body, further your work on more challenging poses, and explore your ability to relax.
The morning session will be active and focus on standing poses, backbends, twists and inversions. The afternoon session will be more relaxing with restoratives and forward folds. Alternative poses and modifications will be recommended for those who prefer to not invert or need extra care when backbending.
Open to students who have regularly attended yoga for at least 6 months.
Dorinda’s teaching style helps students focus on intention and anatomical alignment through compassionate and clear instruction, skillful sequencing, and perceptive hands-on adjustments. Her purpose is to help students experience this ancient practice in a way that reveals its wisdom, and ease. Dorinda’s love of yoga comes through in her devotion to the intention of her teachers. Her reverence for yoga’s complex lineage is balanced with humor so that students leave class feeling refreshed with clear minds and energized bodies.
Dorinda has been studying Iyengar yoga since 1995 and began teaching in 2010. She is a long-time student of Donald Moyer, Mary Lou Weprin and Debbie Gilman, a graduate of The Yoga Room’s Advanced Studies Program and a Relax and Renew Trainer through Judith Lasater’s accredited program. She is certified at the Experienced 500 hour level (ERYT500) and a Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) with the Yoga Alliance. Dorinda is the program coordinator and a member of the core faculty for the Advanced Studies Program at The Yoga Room in Berkeley.
