MEET ARA ~ LEARNING ARCHITECT, TEACHER & TEACHER TRAINER
Why do I love what I do?
You know that feeling when time stands still, you are focused, in the flow, every challenge seems possible, when you know you are on the right path? That is exactly how I feel when I’m teaching, giving energy sessions, or designing programs (training, workshops & continuing ed programs).
In classes, trainings & healing energy sessions, I enjoy connecting students to their present experience and sharing the tools of yoga & qigong to proactively care for the body, mind & spirit. Read more about Ara’s journey to yoga & qigong HERE.
In my training design services, my biggest joy is successfully helping yoga teachers & studios offer inspiring programs through a solid learning foundation. I have done my job well when students & faculty can focus on the actual learning experience; the reason why they are all there.
