Yoga & Live Music!

Music, Yoga, Magic!  Join Julia Jonson and Kevin Paris for an unforgettable Yoga & Live Music outdoor event at the home of student Dawn Fleischman.  Julia will guide us through a soulful, well-aligned 75-minute practice while Kevin serenades us with live music & the healing power of sound.

Science has shown that yoga, music, and human connection can shift our physiology in powerful ways that restore harmony, reduce stress, stimulate our parasympathetic nervous system, boost endorphins and facilitate healing.  It’s practically magic. All you have to do is show up.

Friday, July 16th, 6:30 – 7:45 pm — LOCATION: 8 Devonshire Lane, Lincolnshire 60069 — $30 per person (payment holds spot, non-refundable 72-hours before the event). Zelle julia@tbyyoga.com, Venmo Julia Jonson@tbyyoga, PayPal Julia C Jonson 

Yoga Teacher Training

200-Hour Alignment-Based Training 

Yoga provides us with an opportunity to get to know ourselves from the inside out. Society teaches us to live externally, while yoga teaches us to live internally. It’s what makes exploring the teachings so profound. While teachers in training will learn how to teach yoga poses and sequences, this training is focused on how to teach yoga students. Teaching others begins with our own personal, internal integrity, which is why we place great importance on studying yoga’s code of ethics first.  Coursework includes yoga humanities, in-depth instruction on teaching postures and, sequencing classes. This training places emphasis on ethics, anatomy, physiology, and the meditative quality of this ancient yet timeless practice.

Praise: “I have been practicing with Julia for more than a year and a half. Julia instructs me in therapeutic yoga because of physical limitations. Through this, I have come to utilize breathing, meditative, and body movements to help with pain, to calm,  to strengthen, and to move more freely. Her teachings and our discussions have opened my mind to look at life and all that entails with a different view. If you are fortunate to have the opportunity to study with Julia, don’t pass it up.” -Mark V.
