Weekend one, available December 7 and 8, will teach trainees standing poses and alignment, how to teach Sun Salutations A & B, a lecture on anatomy and how the skeletal system is used to teach, and an introduction to the Yoga Sutras and energetic qualities of the chakras.
The second weekend, available January 11 and 12, teaches back-bending poses and twists with a focus on extension and hyperextension, sun salutations and inversions, and anatomy and physiology of the muscular system as it is used to teach yoga. Discussion will focus on Yamas and Niyamas and light energy work.
Weekend three, available January 25 and 26, teaches deep floor and restorative poses and anatomy and physiology of the joints and endocrine systems. Discussion will continue with a focus on modern living meeting ancient art.

Red Hot Yoga
A household name on the Atlanta yoga circuit and a skilled teacher of the ancient art, Bethany Vaughn brings credibility to Red Hot Yoga. She houses the studio in a space formerly used by an antique flooring company, welcoming students to spread their mats over beautiful 100-year-old wide-plank pine flooring in the two expansive practice spaces. Bethany centers her fifth and favorite studio on a power-yoga style that's performed in a 105-degree setting. Three levels of power classes cater to practitioners of all abilities, helping those new to the practice to link the flowing poses with conscious breathing techniques while challenging more experienced stretchers with advanced postures. Red Hot Yoga's 4,200 square feet of space includes changing and shower facilities, eliminating the need to bring along a tent equipped with shelves.
