Find Your Flow: 26 & 2
December 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$25
This is a gently heated class consisting of 26 classic Hatha yoga postures and two breathing exercises. The sequence is not connected with Vinyasa; instead, focus is on breath and stillness in between poses. Perfect for all students, beginner through advanced. This series is extremely healing, detoxifying and balancing resulting in a feeling of deep calm. Benefits of the 26&2 sequence include: Safely strengthening and stretching every muscle group; detoxifying and balancing the body; and strengthens internal body systems, including the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, nervous, immune, endocrine, lymphatic, and cardiovascular systems.
Presenter: Travis Lancaster, 500 RYT
Travis Lancaster, 200 RYT Yoga Instructor: Being an avid athlete my entire life, Travis eventually reached a physical dead end. Knee surgeries, ankle surgeries, years of impact, and common body misalignments left me with chronic knee pain, degenerating cartilage, arthritis, scar tissue, bone fragments and limited mobility. She could no longer keep up my fitness regimen and devastatingly had to quit my life-long love affair with running, and more surgery seemed to be the only (and bleak) option.
That is when she discovered the Bikram method of hot yoga, and her life has been changing ever since. Yoga had been part of her fitness routine for more than ten years, but it wasn’t until she discovered this particular method that she developed a true and devoted practice. She have now had a dedicated yoga practice for the past five years and have slowly but surely been healing (without surgery), not just her physical body but her emotional and spiritual ones as well.
Travis earned her 200 RYT certification in hot yoga at the Bikram Yoga Rockville studio, in the spring of 2017. After a year of teaching yoga sher desire for more knowledge was burning so she traveled to Brooklyn, NY and earned her 300 RYT from International yoga teacher Jared McCann.
Holding a Bachelors in Fine Arts and Master’s degree in teaching, Travis am a former local high school art teacher and track coach. She took time away from hr career to raise her son, and now it has been exciting to return to her teaching occupation in a different arena. It has been a great fit to combine her teaching experience with my love of athletics and holistic health to help spread the vast benefits of this healing practice to our community.
