Yoga Focus is our in-depth weekend workshop series offered once a month at Infinite Yoga. Each series focuses on one particular topic and progesses over two days. Space is limited to ensure individual attention and results. The two-day intensive format allows time to absorb, review, repeat and progress. With each Yoga Focus Series you’ll gain fresh insight, build self-confidence and advance in your practice and knowledge of yoga.
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, Dana put me at ease. I never felt pressure to do more than I could or that she was pushing us beyond our means. At the same time, I feel like we all progressed a lot with each session. I really loved it, as you can tell, since I signed up for the other two right away! C.C.
Yoga Focus Workshops are taught by highly experienced specialists, experts in the field of yoga asana, philosophy, anatomy, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, holistic nutrition and other related fields. Our once a month “Focus” offers a variety of topics, always something new and fresh to explore and broaden your knowledge of yoga and yourself and to compliment the Infinite Yoga practice. Yoga Focus Series are designed for All Levels – everyone is welcome. Many of the series offer CEU’s for Yoga Alliance.
Preregistration is required as space is intentionally limited. This ensures each student experiences individual attention, 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.

May 21st 2017 12:00 – 2:00pm
Learn simple, yet powerful Pranayama (breath work) techniques to balance your endocrine system. The endocrine system is the bridge between the body, mind and consciousness. Learn how meditation can deeply effect the pineal gland (band master of the endocrine system) and harmonize your entire system.
If you are experiencing blood sugar imbalances, low energy, foggy brain, depression, insomnia, hyper or hypo thyroid – all of these may be symptoms of hormonal imbalances and will be addressed in detail in this informative Focus series. You’ll also learn about Ayurvedic herbs that can naturally balance the endocrine system/hormones.
This Yoga Focus weekend is geared towards anyone experiencing these issues as well as yoga teachers, holistic health practitioners & personal trainers interested in learning natural techniques to offer to their clients.
All Yoga Focus Workshop Series are interactive! This one will include yoga/pranayama practice as well as lecture each day. Please bring a notebook, yoga mat and an empty stomach is best!

- Functional Anatomy for Yoga Teachers, Aspiring Teachers & Curious Students
with Dave Garza HHP
June 3rd 2017 1:00 – 6:00pm
June 4th 2017 1:00 – 6:00pm
Join us for a very special 10-hour Yoga Focus on human anatomy with practical applications for yoga asana (postures). Understand the functions of muscles, bones and connective tissue and how they work together in the matrix of the body. Using this knowledge as a background, you’ll learn how to identify imbalances in students as they perform asanas, and gain a greater understanding for how your own body moves in practice and in everyday life.
This workshop is designed for current yoga teachers, aspiring teachers and curious students to deepen their knowledge of yoga, the human body and explore new concepts. This “focused” weekend would be excellent for physical therapists, personal trainers and is an integral part of Infinite Yoga Teacher Training.
