Yoga Focus is a multi-week, progressive workshop series. Numbers are limited to ensure lots of personal attention. Each workshop series brings together the information of a workshop, the flow of a class and the individual attention of a private lesson.
In comparison to traditional 2 – 3 hour workshops, Yoga Focus gives you to time to absorb, review, practice, repeat what you are learning over an extended period. Each week you’ll progress as you build understanding, self-confidence and advance in your yoga practice.
I enjoyed every minute of it. I was a little nervous going into the workshop, because I didn’t know what to expect, but right away, you put me at ease. I never felt pressure to do more than I could or that you were pushing us beyond our means. At the same time, I feel like we all progressed a lot with every session. So, I would just say, keep doing what you’re doing. I really loved it, as you can tell, since I signed up for the other two right away! C.C.
The Yoga Focus series is taught by Dana Rae Paré, founder and creative director of Infinite Yoga. Dana specializes in unique teacher trainings and workshops that empower, inspire and build self-confidence to all levels of students (Dana’s bio).
Preregistration is required as space is intentionally limited. This ensures each student experiences individual attention from Dana, gains the most out of the workshop series and is able to move further forward in their yoga practice. As these workshops are very popular and highly effective, they sell out very quickly.
The entire experience was excellent because not only did my back bending improve but I learned a lot about myself and the practice. The homework piece was super helpful too… it helped me from week to week. The group was great, the time was good. Yep, it was excellent. Thanks again and I can’t wait for the next. R.G.L.
Wednesday’s Focus is 6:00 – 7:30pm for 6-consecutive weeks $118*.
Students deepen their understanding of one particular aspect or theme of yoga (back-bending, arm-balancing etc.) and build upon it week after week.
Saturday’s Focus is 11:00 – 12:30pm for 3-consecutive weeks $66*.
Students focus on a single, challenging posture (Headstand away from the wall, handstand, jumping back etc.). Each week the selected pose is broken down step by step, practiced and reviewed with individual attention to help each student understand and begin to master it. Saturday’s are a great introduction to the benefits of Yoga Focus!
Thank you again for yet another amazing Yoga Focus! I have become not only addicted to the specialized focus but also spoiled by your semi-private instruction! J.W.

Yoga Focus Workshops
The “fulcrum” is the central point of balance between two points. Finding the Fulcrum explores the balance of strength, flexibility and centering to effortlessly practice postures like Bakasana (crane/crow), Parsva Bakasana, Eka Pada Koundinyasana (name of a Sage, often called scissors), along with lifting up and jumping through.
Even if you already know these postures, you’ll develop strength and awareness in the right areas to alleviate shoulder and neck issues often caused with imbalances in the body or misunderstanding of the fulcrum point. The arm balance focus is taught step by step to ensure students gain a deeper understanding and build self confidence in mastering these challenging postures while building upper body and core strength.
Find your Fulcrum and learn to linger longer than one breath!

Backbends, when done safely and correctly will bring freedom, lightness and even euphoria to your yoga practice. In traditional Ashtanga Yoga we are taught to follow the practice and the skills will come. Knowledge helps accelerate the process. Art of Archery is a step-by-step approach to help you develop understanding and confidence in back-bending.
Urdhva Dhanurasana – urd-va-dah-nur-asana means upward bow pose (as in bow and arrow, not the one in your hair!) A challenging back-bend that opens the front of the body while strengthening the back. Much is required to effortlessly perform this posture.
This focus will help you understand your strengths and learn what is limiting you.
In 3 progressive weeks you’ll gain the knowledge and the tools to move forward in this powerful and opening posture.
A great workshop for students who have difficulty with backbending. Yoga teachers will learn new skills and improve the quality of their classes with fresh ideas to teach beginners.
Strengthen your back and open your heart!
