Basha Nemeskeri: Yoga Philosophy
Like many of us, suffering brought me to yoga. It was the vulnerability and honesty of the teacher that showed me that we are all in this together - that we all go through the heartaches, and the joys, and the boredom. After a few years of practicing, I simply couldn't NOT teach others, because of how much I'd learned and fallen in love with in the practice. I have done teacher trainings in Anusara, Ashtanga and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy and have yet to cease wanting to keep learning more about this never ending field. When I teach, I think of what could help my students feel as good as their bodies were designed to feel...to remember how fantastic we're all meant to feel if we take care and pay attention. I like to remind the fellas I teach that they are quite possibly the most flexible guys in their entire family lineage, and to take that as a big pat on the back 🙂 I like to encourage and motivate, and show people how remarkable they truly are.
I have a 200 hour through ensure, and a 250 hour through ayurvedic yoga therapy and a 50 hour kundalini. Been teaching for 8 years
Nura Madjzoub: Teaching Methodology
Nura has been teaching yoga for over a 15 years on multiple continents. She is an avid traveler, a yogi, a mother and therapeutic massage therapist. Like many others, she is also on a quest to connect to the core; to her truth. She believes that how we practice yoga, and what we come up against on the mat is our very own practice ground for real life. Yoga keeps her humble, and hungry for more knowledge. She teaches because she loves to share her own discoveries on her journey through this wonderful and messy life.
Nura has trained and mentored with Sanjeev Bhanot, Founder of Yogalife Foundation, and has completed the 200 hour yoga training at Kripalu Center in Massachusetts. She is trained, certified and experienced in prenatal yoga and has done further studies in Core Strength Vinyasa, Anusara and Thai yoga massage. She is also a Licensed and Board Certified Massage Therapist in New York and in the USA with over 1000 hours of training. Nura brings a unique set of skills to her yoga teaching from her background as a therapeutic massage therapist. She enjoys the interplay between yoga and massage work and draws from all her studies in her classes, workshops and trainings. Her yoga teaching is always infused with a strong foundation in anatomy and physiology. She has been trained, over the past decade and a half, to see the movement and the freedom, as well as the tension and the blocks, in bodies.
Myofascial release, postural alignment and Sanskrit with Tasha Mae
In this workshop, we will discover the many benefits and uses of bringing a dowel into your practice. The dowel can be used as a tool to assist with postural alignment and myofascial release. We will use the dowel to explore the ancient technique of tapping, as a tool to assist with lengthening and creating space in the body, and even as a way to assist in teaching your students, and yourself, proper alignment when moving through the asanas.
Movement is Tasha Mae’s passion and she considers herself a lifelong student. She is always curious and interested in discovering the most wholesome way to keep our body healthy and well balanced by practicing meditation (just sitting), pranayama and breath, strength training, cardio, and the yoga asanas. Tasha Mae is not only passionate about movement, but also loves to share it with other people. She has currently been teaching yoga and fitness for 3 years. Tasha Mae is an 800hour internationally certified Vijnana Yoga Teacher as well as a Personal Trainer and Fitness Class Instructor. She has also studied and practiced the Tensegrity Repair Series with Gioia Irwin and Flo Dedame.

Registered Massage Therapist, Certified Yoga Therapist. Advanced Teacher of Therapeutic Yoga
“Yoga was my first real love. When I first began practicing, closed my eyes and was able to journey inward, I felt I had come home. The practice of (meditation and yoga) reminded me in this way of my experience in nature. Yoga continues to ground and nourish me; calm and soothe my nervous system, and has helped me heal from many injuries over the years. I love that by tuning into the breath we can deepen in our somatic experience and vitality in life; and we all have access to the breath. I am thrilled about the evolution of yoga as a therapeutic application, and feel passionate about sharing its benefits with others.”
