Yoga and the Heart with Shari Friedrichsen


Mar 10, 2018
01:30 PM until 04:30 PM


Yoga Teachers Association of the Hudson Valley is thrilled to welcome back Shari Friedrichsen for “Yoga and the Heart,” which will take place on Saturday, March 10, at Club Fit in Briarcliff Manor, NY. 

In this workshop about unfolding the secrets held in the heart center. Friedrichsen will use the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita as guides to show how asana, pranayama, focus, and meditation can strengthen and nourish this sacred space in our bodies. This practice uses the tools of yoga to discover what’s already embedded there, enhances our relationship to the more sublime nature of our heart, and strengthens our heart’s deep commitment to the world. Discover how to support the heart in revealing its innate beauty, charm, vitality, and healing powers.

The focus of this workshop is to reclaim the beauty and grace that reside within our own hearts. It is not a substitute for medical care. Those with heart health concerns should seek out the advice of a doctor.

Shari Friedrichsen is a key facilitator of the Himalayan Institute teacher certification program and a member of the 500-hour teacher training faculty at 8 Limbs Yoga in Seattle, Washington. Shari has studied asana, meditation, and philosophy with Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Rolf Sovik, Amma Sri Karunamayi, and BKS Iyengar. Her approach uses yoga as a vital, powerful, and compassionate component in healing the body and the psyche.
