" Chia is one who teaches with a huge heart and passion. Yoga is meant to be a spiritual experience, with centering oneself in breath and feeling the power within the body. Chia helps you achieve all of this and more. Her approach is allowing and strengthening where ever you are in your yoga practice. This is her unique gift and I highly recommend experiencing her teachings."

Yoga & Movement
Each day will include two yoga practices:
Morning Practice ~ Solar/Yang Energy Surya Namaskar ‘Sun Salutation’ This energizing and grounding practice cultivates Yang energy of the sun to warm up and awaken the body, Encouraging you to attend to that which is pulsing softly within you.
Evening practice ~ Lunar/Yin Energy Chandra Namaskar ‘Moon Salutations.’ This receptive, slower moving practice, works the deep tissues, energy body and mind/body. A series of asanas ~ postures done in honor of the moon and its special Yin energies.
Chia’s teaching style is a harmonious blend of Vinyasa Flow and Hatha yoga, with a strong emphasis on the breath and self-healing. She encourages students to smile, breathe, move slowly, listen to their bodies, and the wisdom of their own heart, encouraging students to value their unique process. Chia is soulful, joyous and clearly in her element when she is teaching. Her compassionate, loving, helpful and patient guidance assists students at every level of practice. Her hands-on approach is nurturing, intuitive, and supportive.
As one who battled drug addiction for many years, Chia has learned from her own experience that yoga is medicine.
The practice of yoga has changed her life.
Chia is grateful to her many teachers. She is humbled by the many wonderful- and challenging experiences that have shaped her life.
“I’m delighted to be a part of something beautiful and precious, helping people to be whole, healthy, joyous and free. Returning to their true essence.”
With Gratitude, Chia Rafelson
