These alignment-based classes welcome beginners and challenge advanced students. By aligning digits and joints, directing energy, and creating depth with the breath, students will create an expanded sense of their yoga practice. This intentional and nourishing class will help you integrate your yoga with your life, while getting your joints juicy!
Join us at Empire Farm Brewery for a morning of yoga in our state of the art brewing facility in Cazenovia, NY!
That's right we want you and your fellow yogis to come out on Sunday, October 14, 2018 for yoga in the brewery. We are putting a special twist on this yoga class! It is to help Fundraise for a Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) Cure!
10:30-11:30am: Yoga with Dara Harper from The Everson Museum of Art and works at JDRF as Development Manager.
Dara Harper, a yoga teacher with 23 years experience, has taught every level of yoga from beginner to absurd. She has taught SU football players and other athletes, pre-natal yoga, therapeutic yoga, students who have been dancers, and students who can barely move. For Dara, the physical practice of yoga is about coming into balance. Some students are too flexible and work their way toward strength. Other students are inflexible and work their way toward mobility. Dara combines her concise alignment-based instruction with subtle adjustments to create a greater understanding for each individual student. Every class is infused with juicy poses, breath work, and philosophy to bend your brain. Dara has studied with many great teachers including John Friend (the founder of Anusara Yoga), Douglas Brooks, Desiree Rumbaugh, Sianna Sherman, Doug Keller, and Tom Myers, a Rolfer and author of the book Anatomy Trains. Originally from Louisville, KY, Dara moved with her family from Denver, CO to Cazenovia in 2008.
On Mothers’ Day 2017, Dara’s daughter, Amie, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), a life-changing and life-threatening disease. Dara spent a year learning everything she could about T1D and then decided to go back to work full time to help JDRF find a cure. Dara currently teaches at The Everson Museum of Art and works at JDRF as Development Manager.
About T1D: Type 1 diabetes is a chronic, life-threatening autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults at any age. In type 1 diabetes, the body’s immune system destroys the cells that release insulin, eventually eliminating insulin production from the body. Type 1 diabetes requires rigorous 24/7 monitoring of blood glucose levels to avoid devastating complications. T1D onset is sudden and unpreventable, and it is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Currently, T1D affects 1.25M Americans. By 2050, 5M people are expected to have T1D. That’s why we need a cure!
