“Oh no! It’s Sunday night already!”
We all know that feeling as we prepare ourselves for another Monday blue. We live in a highly demanding society that requires us to be constantly performing to our best, and relaxation is considered as something to be earned instead of a moment we all need. Constant social and work pressure results not just in a stressed body, but also in a stressed mind (and soul) which compels us to take decisions and actions that even stress our environment.
Sunday evenings should be a time of realigning our trio, about positive thoughts and about fresh energy to kickoff another week to achieve greater impact at work, and off it.
Join us for our special series of Sunday evening ‘work-ins’ where the focus will be partially on working on your body but mostly on working on your inner self - hence 'work-in'.
'aham' is the Sanskrit word for 'I' or 'Me'. Change starts with myself.
About the Trainer:
Greg was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA. An athlete since childhood, Greg became an NCAA division 1 wrestler, but injury led him away from his dream of a national championship, and he turned his focus towards healing. Yoga came into Greg’s life years later, and through Asana practice, he began to understand the importance of using breath to bring his body and mind into balance. After practicing for 12 years, Greg obtained his Vinyasa Flow 200 hr yoga certification at Frog Lotus Yoga International in southern Spain, with Vidya Jacqueline Heisel. He also participated in an intensive Ashtanga retreat with KPJAYI approved teacher, Govinda Kai. Greg has practiced Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, and Bikram yoga. He teaches from the desire to communicate proper alignment and protect his students from injury, while also encouraging his students to look beyond the surface of modern Yoga and the trappings of the Ego. Greg has also been a massage therapist for 18 years and has extensive training and experience in energy healing, numerology reading, and counseling. He implements these skills in his Yoga Therapy classes. He is the owner of Byler Holistic, a company located on Yongjia Lu, offering these, and other types of therapy.
