Alex and Melissa in Flying Double Uttanasana.

We handed out Yoga With A Friend in last Sunday’s Yoga Mountain certification class. Nancy Vinik, a Bikram teacher and Gail Walsh, Director of YMI, gave partner yoga workshops called “Yoga with a Friend” at the Open Center in Manhattan back in the day.

Yoga With A Friend is a partner yoga series with full graphic depictions by Nancy Vinik, and text by Gail Walsh and Nancy Vinik. It’s the handout for our original partner yoga workshop. Yoga Mountain, Inc. incorporates training in partner yoga in our 200 and 300/500 certification programs. It’s too good to miss!

Christine’s Case Study – part 2

July 31st, 2014


My yoga therapy case study contacted me because she wanted to try an aerial class — it was such an amazing experience to teach her to fly, trust, and let go. We had such a profound experience together! I would have never had the confidence to work with a blind student if it weren’t for Yoga Mountain. I’ve had the most meaningful teaching moments with her — I just love you all so much.  – Christine O’Donnell

yoga in the classroomYoga in the Classroom has been translated into the Chinese-Mandarin language. It will be out this fall. This new edition is written in both Chinese and English — page by page mirroring — and includes the zen-like drawings of the first edition.

It seems the Chinese are more and more interested in yoga.  The sitting epidemic is dumbing down our children all over the world.
