Online yoga from my heart, to yours… from my home, to yours! We find ourselves in unprecedented times, and this whirlwind of changes can be overwhelming.
Re-center and nourish the roots of your adaptability, clarity, and resilience through deep, accessible Iyengar yoga practice, including asana, pranayama, reflection, radical relaxation, and more. Embodiment + awareness provide integration for our bodies, nervous systems, minds, and hearts.
In this Restorative Yoga class we will practice a short seated meditation, fully support, long held yoga poses and a relaxing savasana. If you don’t have props, I’ll give options for how to use common household items to support your practice. The zoom room will be open 15 minutes prior to and after the class, so we’ll have time to check in and connect.
5% from each class will be donated to Albuquerque Mutual Aid.
About your teacher:
Avery Kalapa, Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT), has been practicing yoga for 20+ years and teaching since 2004. She has studied with the Iyengar family and many others around the US and in India. The beauty and depth of the Iyengar method, experiential anatomy, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Vipassana meditation and healing justice are foundational to her practice and teaching. Precision, playful courage, and commitment to the spiritual dimension enliven her classes.
Avery brings a depth of skill, rigor, and compassion which creates not only safety and accessibility, but inspiration and transformation. She understands our inner spiritual work and awakening to be inseparable from and essential to our work for peace and justice in the world. Yoga, a healing practice rooted in liberation, fortifies our ability to thrive amidst systemic oppression.
Avery also holds a BFA, is certified in Yoga for the Pelvic Floor, Trauma Informed Street Yoga, and yoga for children; and ERYT500 and YACEP through Yoga Alliance. In addition to teaching retreats in the US and abroad, workshops, classes, and private sessions, Avery helps run ABQ Queer Trans Community Yoga and is a mother of two.

About My Yoga Equity Pricing System
As a committed full time instructor, I rely on teaching yoga to support myself and my kids, and with the important steps we’re collectively are taking to flatten the curve, including studio closures and cancelled events, I’m faced with potential financial hardship. Through offering these live online classes I aim to provide much needed support and solace, while creating energetic and financial support for my family, and also an easily accessible resource through scholarship based participation.
Deep discount/ scholarship classes for income challenged folks in need of healing, especially BIPOC, Queer Trans, single parents, and/or immune compromised folks in our community. Many of us are taking a hard hit financially due to the corona virus. And, while the affects of COVID19 are challenging for everyone, the worst of the stress is falling on marginalized communities. My goal with these online classes is to offer deeply accessible yoga as a nourishing practice of refuge and rejuvenation during these troubling, transformational times.
Please feel into what your needs are and decide accordingly. If you are still receiving regular income or are otherwise financially stable, please consider giving more to help cover self employed and unemployed folks. Know that I appreciate each of you, truly.
