The Joy of Movement

with Yogi Zain

Zain is returning to Yoga Northwest to inspire us with new fun and creative ways of practicing our classical postures with his wonderful adventurous yet caring and warm-hearted spirit.

Morning sessions: Finding delight in Flight

The joy of courage of arm balances. Expect to have your energy high and spirit lifted at the end of this class. Afternoon session: well-rounded and grounded: a floor based practice using minimal props. A restorative tempo with a focus on hip openers and twist.

Pre-Covid, Yogi Zain was spending most of his year travelling around the world teaching workshops and sharing his love of yoga with people in Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Jakarta and China. But now he is reaching his students from around the world via Zoom! For many years Zain taught at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in San Francisco and at the San Quentin Prison. He’s also something of an instagram star- he creates shortform videos to illustrate his playful ideas about Iyengar Yoga.
