Alignment, Breath, and Core: Exploring Fundamentals of Yoga Asana | CANCELLED

With Gloria Baraquio

April 2 - 5, 2020

Alignment, Breath, and Core: Exploring Fundamentals of Yoga Asana

4-Day Yoga Intensive in the Redwoods

With Gloria Baraquio, E-RYT 500, Lead Trainer of Shivakali Yoga

With our intent to make yoga and retreats more accessible to others, we are offering a sliding scale for this intensive. Please pay what you can, and pay it forward!

Are you looking to strengthen your yoga practice and improve your form?  Do you struggle with certain postures, and you’re not sure why? Are you looking for new ways to understand your body, its capacity and its limitations?  If you’re ready to gain a deeper understanding of how yoga postures work in relation to
breath, gravity, anatomy/physiology, and mindstate, then this yoga intensive is designed for you.  In this 4-day retreat, we will have daily yoga practice, multiple posture clinics, and time for meditation and reflection.  We will break down specific postures (classical, advanced, restorative, etc.) and study different bodies in the room to see how the same pose can be accessed in a variety of ways. You will leave with experiential knowledge of yoga science and a deeper respect for your body, the breath, and the teachings.  

Gloria Baraquio has taught over 10,000 hours of yoga to students of all ages in 8 different countries.  She has found key principles and commonalities in all bodies and minds, and she shares her enthusiasm for yoga science in all of her teachings.  She is our Resident Yoga Teacher and Program Director at Ratna Ling.  You can learn more about Gloria at

**Massage, acupuncture, and private yoga/meditation are available at an additional cost.
