ira

Homegrown on the beautiful west side of Puerto Rico, Iraimer is a dancer-artist and yogi with an emblazoned passion for the ethereal qualities of nature, meaningful spiritual connection, movement as creative expression, and music as a trigger for corporal self expression. After many years of dancing, she found yoga and was instantly amazed by both the spiritual and physical benefits it reveals.

After completing her 200hr training at The Bhakti Center NYC, she dove into the exploration of mind-body-soul connection. She encourages her students to rise above their current state of awareness so they can begin to experience higher states of appreciation by accessing all the resources available within.

Iraimer is beyond grateful to teach at The Bhakti Center and she hopes to create a safe space for her students to reconnect with themselves and their environment.

YOGA 101

an introduction to basic yoga postures & breath with Ira

date – sunday, december 3 – register here

time – 2:00-4:00pm

location – the bhakti center room 2w

admission – $35


Yoga 101 is a workshop designed as an introduction to the practice of yoga and is open for beginners as well as those who are seeking a better understanding on the fundamentals of alignment.  There is no pressure or competition, just connecting your body, mind and soul with the timeless practice of yoga

We will focus on exploring the structure and foundation to some of the basic yoga postures, and how to safely get in and out of each of them. We will use yoga props to help support the body where needed, so each participant can learn how to adjust the practice to their own needs. 

We will also introduce simple techniques of breath control, better known as pranayama, to bring breath awareness into the practice and learn the correlation between breath & postures. 

Whether you are new to yoga or a more advanced yogi, this workshop will provide the tools necessary for you to create a strong foundation in your practice. 

Each participant will leave with a short sequence of postures that can be practiced daily at home.
