Larina Hawkins-Hower | RYT-200hr

Larina has 20 years of experience exploring asanas and doing healing energy work.  She co-teaches with her husband Murti Hower at Maha Yoga Institute with an emphasis on vinyasa flow yoga, restorative yoga, alignment adjustments and aromatherapy. She and Murti Hower have developed Tantra Partner Yoga For Couples® workshops and retreats which are a wonderful way for couples to connect, to see the divine in each other and to awaken the spark of connection. Larina also has a depth of experience in the area of "conscious dance" holding regular ecstatic dance events monthly. Larina is 200HR certified through Yoga Alliance and also holds a certification in Yoga Trance Dance™ with Shiva Rea.

Dr. Shayne Guthrie |  Yoga Anatomy

Shayne Guthrie uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning.  Dr. Guthrie takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Guthrie will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.

Is it time to get certified to teach or simply deepen your practice?

This training is a perfect fit to satisfy both types of yoga practitioners.

 Learn how to share the bliss of yoga practice with others!
