Fundamentals of Yoga Philosophy, with Anat Geiger is eligible for 4 Continuing Education Credits with Yoga Alliance.
Anat Geiger threads science, spirituality, philosophy teachings and chakra theory through her teaching, combining Yang elements of strength and rhythm with Yin elements of kindness and silence.
After a 25-year career in performance arts, Anat studied intensively with Teresa Caldas and Dona Holleman, following both their yoga teacher trainer programs. They gave her priceless insights into alignment, precision, therapeutics, clarity and intent.
In 2009 Anat met Paul and Suzee Grilley and began studying Yin Yoga, Chakra Theory and Meditation and Philosophy. Through Paul and Suzee, Anat found new and unexpected possibilities. She discovered that our bodies are fundamentally different and alignment varies from person to person. She learned that science and spirituality enrich and benefit each other and that we need strength, movement and fierceness, as well as kindness, acceptance and stillness: Yang and Yin. Anat continues to study with Paul and Suzee and is one of their main assistants.
"Anat doesn't just have a functional approach to asanas, she has a functional approach to philosophy too - breaking down complex topics into language you can understand, giving you nuggets of knowledge you can digest and explore for yourself. These workshops are a great start for anyone looking to integrate yoga into their lives off the mat and, as always with Anat, it comes from the heart."
" Anat conveys the basic concepts of yoga philosophy in such a passionate and clear way, making it easier to connect to and start developing an understanding of those ideas. Highly recommended! "
