We refine the basics and move toward challenging level 2/3 poses in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Live via Zoom, available afterwards on Vimeo On Demand. Cost: $15 or PWYC. Venmo: @julie-dohrman
Julie’s signature Align + Flow classes blend a deep connection to spirit with effective physical technique, energizing sequences, pranayama, and meditation that enliven the full depth of the practice. Each class is uniquely different and Julie offers themes from varied sources to bring context to the practice to inspire mindful connection. Julie offers an intelligent, balanced and uplifting approach to yoga, rooted in the intention of growing everyone’s awareness and ability to be empowered participants in their lives.
“Julie is simply a delightful teacher who has truly absorbed yoga teachings into her life. She magically transforms lessons learned from New York grit into ancient truths, passed down by generations of yogis with depth, love and humor.” – Cynthia Conti-Cook, NYC
“Julie – I love your classes and I really respect your teaching. Thank you for taking an interest in your students and for being so down to earth. I really trust you as a teacher. You make me feel grounded, and more importantly, that I can improve.” – Avery Miller, Brooklyn
Basics: Basics with Julie delivers the fundamentals that allow you to begin and sustain a regular practice. You need not be already experienced, athletic, flexible, or even entirely injury free. You’ll learn forms of poses, breathing technique, simple transitions, strengthening skills, use of props for support, and the basic pace of a yoga class. Good for anyone returning to practice after time away, brand new beginners, or anyone seeking a focused pace.
Open Align: Class blends alignment technique into a progressive and dynamic sequence, with optional variations using props for accessibility, as well as greater challenge. A fusion of flow and form-based practices, Open Align classes are truly open to all.
Hour Flow: For a more experienced student, we get a lot done in an hour! This class blends dynamic flowing sequences and technique into a steady rhythm. Students are recommended to be proficient at maintaining steady breath during sequences that include more challenging poses with refined technique. Classes include arm balances, deeper back bends, and inversions. Not recommended for beginners to yoga.
Advanced Practice: Designed for teachers, teacher trainees / graduates, and seasoned students to deepen your practice on a regular basis in a community of like-minded committed practitioners. This Zoom class offers exploration, nuanced instruction, refinement, and insights, as we practice the familiar poses in a deeper way and venture toward poses seldom practiced in public class. Advanced Practice can sharpen your studentship as it improves your skills and will include inversions, arm balances, deep backbends, as well as pranayama, yoga philosophy, and meditation. Not recommended for people with current injuries. All teachers, trainees, grads, and seasoned students interested in TT are welcome, regardless of school, studio, method or style. Come prepared to play deeply!
