“When I think back, I can’t even remember the person I was before this training”-Emily

Ever wonder how life, your work, your job, your love could feel as good as savasana or as empowering as your practice?

Life is yoga | Start living your practice.

In this training you will learn how to bridge the gap between what you feel and how you move on your mat, and how you feel and how you move through your life.  Learn the fine craft of weaving your everyday life into your yoga practice and conversely, applying the yoga on your mat to your everyday life.

be. in Union Yoga is EMVY
(EMpowerment Vinyasa Yoga)

Vinyasa simply means incorporating breath with movement.  be. in Union yoga is Vinyasa based, but philosophically, we at be. believe that there is a significant difference between “power” and “empower(ment).”  Therefore, less stress is placed on the heat or the “power” aspect of this yoga practice.  Our intention is on making students really own and feel empowered by their practice, in every sense of the word.  We’re simply trying to get the message out that yoga is about YOU.

All of our classes at be. are founded on the notion of empowerment.     All EMVY classes are All Levels classes.
