OUR YOGA TEACHERS

 

TODD SKOLGLUND

From a host of various athletic activites and movement modalities, including various martial arts, calisthenics, gymnastics and acrobatics, I fell in love with the practice of yoga for its ability to ground me in the present moment, uniting my internal world with external experience.

 

I have led multiple international retreats, including three in various parts of Italy. On retreat with me everything is optional. There are plenty of included activities for you to relax, unwind, explore, taste, shop, and soak in. Classes will be geared for an All Levels crowd and scheduled around planned activities and meals, and everyone is welcome. My idea of retreat isn’t a yoga training where you practice 4 times a day. I choose these amazing locations for you to enjoy and explore fully. Classes, always optional will be once or twice a day depending on the daily schedule.

 

Todd founded and co-owns South Boston Yoga, where he leads all levels classes, advanced asana and co-directs the 200hr and 500hr Yoga teacher trainings certification programs. Todd also teaches classes at Equinox Clubs in Boston and leads retreats and workshops around the US and abroad. His classes are challenging, fun, intelligent and taught with great respect and purpose, bringing you a better awareness of your body’s options.

HEATHER WHITE

 

Yoga shows you the tools to align with your intention so that you can live on purpose with skill and grace.  On this retreat with Heather you will learn to use movement and meditation to clear the path of access to your desires so they can unfold on and off the mat.  What you seek is inside, not outside, and a retreat is a powerful opportunity to step back from the things you think are holding you back and discover the strength that resides at the center of you.  It’s all about loving the one you’re with, and that happens to be you.  What would it be like if you found more ease and joy in that singular lifelong relationship?  Heather  has been sharing this work with yoga and mediation students since 2009 and can’t wait to move, sit, breathe, laugh, play, eat, drink, and be with you.
