YOGA / QIGONG BOOKLETS & TRAINING MANUALS
Over the last 12 years, Ara has written and edited manuals for hatha, flow, yin, restorative, chair, prenatal, anatomy of yoga, energy body, qigong and meditation. She has created booklets & training manuals to support yoga schools, teachers and students on their learning path.
Yoga was my way in. I stumbled upon yoga in 1998 with a 20 minute video, popping it into the VCR late at night after I came home from a stressful day at work. Little did I know this simple video would change my life! I discovered an all-encompassing system that showed me how to find ease, stability and strength in body, mind and spirit. Yoga led me to Qigong and both have become important tools for my health, well-being and a complement to the other activities in my life.
My yoga, qigong and meditation practices continue to help me find perspective and balance with greater ease – at home, work, alone, with others, and within every moment. Over 21 years later (with 5700+ hours of training, teaching and leading 47 teacher trainings), I enjoy teaching others how to use the system of yoga & qigong to learn how to:
- slow down and listen to the present state of their body and mind
- identify what their lifestyle requires from them
- how to use the methods of yoga & qigong to serve the needs of their lives
In that way, we meet ourselves where we are, take a proactive approach to self care and can practice yoga & qigong for life. I have the highest level of accreditation with the Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500, YACEP), am a Medical Qigong Practioner (500hrs) and have studied hatha, flow, yin, restorative, kundalini, prenatal, anatomy, qigong and meditation. I enjoy helping others listen inwards and find their way in through teaching classes, trainings and giving qigong healing energy sessions.
