with Desiree Rumbaugh
Friday-Sunday April 12-14
We all know that long-term relationships require commitment, self-reflection, inner strength and self-love. This weekend workshop will give students and teachers of all levels a chance to slow down and focus on sharpening their skills of self-observation. Instead of just noticing whether we can or cannot do a pose, we will be looking inside to see if we can discover what we are feeling in our body and how we are directing or mind to absorb the experience in the moment. The next step can then be the discovery of what we can do that might cause even a slight shift. This small shift has the potential to open up a possibility to move forward into a new place. Let’s get together and let go of some self-limiting thoughts. Let’s look at what life has presented to us and then get stronger so we can age more gracefully.

For Desiree, yoga has been a life-saver emotionally as well as physically. With longtime studies in Iyengar and Anusara yoga, she brings 30 years of experience, experimentation and creativity to her ever-evolving, outside-of-the-box style of teaching. She incorporates real life stories and “kitchen table” wisdom into her workshops to remind herself and her students that the key to their happiness and freedom from suffering lies only within the boundaries of their own mind.
Desiree travels the world full time sharing her compassion and her joy with others interested in the transformational power of yoga.
She has produced a DVD series entitled “Yoga to the Rescue” and is a regular contributor to Yoga Journal, having also appeared on its cover. Desiree supports the Art of Yoga Project serving teenage girls in the juvenile justice system.
She and her husband Andrew Rivin are both certified Anusara teachers currently living in southern California.
