About Strala Training
Strala is moving with ease during restful and challenging circumstances alike. When you find ease in effort, your body and life become very capable and strong. You become an expert at creating space in your life for peace, creativity, inspiration, and all-around feeling great.
Strala Training empowers you to find this easy capability whether on your yoga mat, leading a class, or living your life. With Strala, your yoga will transform into a moving meditation that cultivates a radiantly strong, connected, healthy, and inspired body and mind from the inside out.
This training gives you the tools you need to become the leader you’re meant to be, to yourself, those nearest you, or to millions of people around the world.
- If you’re leading yoga, people will love the experience, and your classes will grow.
- You’ll be a creative, capable and inventive leader at work.
- You’ll connect and relate easily and enjoyably with the people around you.
Whether you’re interested in pursuing a teaching path, getting deeper into your yoga, or both, Strala Training is a journey that will transform your inner and outer world.
Learning to move with ease in your body and life is a different kind of challenge than the push and struggle of ordinary physical effort. It’s also a much more rewarding one. It gives far greater physical and life ability. It also gives you you. From here, you get to support other people in finding their own way, and creating their own inspiring lives.
Who is this for?
Strala is practice for accomplishing great challenges with inspiring ease, while dropping the push, stress and struggle from your yoga. It’s also practice for being the best in the world at being you, while dropping the push, stress and struggle from your life. Whether you’re leading yoga, leading at work, or leading your life, Strala gives you practice time for being capable in your body and life. Our training gives you the design details on how this works, and how to use it consciously in everything you do.
