Weekend workshop with Athena will focus predominately on chest opening postures.  Classes will be mostly asana and some pranayama.  Expect a fun weekend of progressive learning and dynamic practice.  Creating space in the physical aspect of the body directly affects the inner embodiment and this conditions the practitioner toward a luminous state of being.

Athena’s teachings inspire classes that are transformative, energetic and fun for all levels of students.  She shares with students the benefits of yoga for physical and emotional well being.  Her instruction is clear and concise; emphasizing alignment and awareness. Athena has devoted thousands of hours to continuing her studies and has been to India numerous times to study at the Iyengar Institute in Pune.  Athena is based in San Francisco, she offers workshops and retreats in the United States and in Mexico.
