Yoga for Strength & Balance
Hi, I'm Bara Vaida, a Washington DC-based certified yoga teacher offering online classes, workshops, and private client sessions. I began practicing yoga 25 years ago as part of my fitness routine and then fell in love with the ways the practice helps me care for my spirit too.
I offer a welcoming, supportive practice for all levels to connect with their breath, body, and mind. I enjoy teaching sequences that help yogis build strength and self-confidence. I am a Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher and received my 500-hour Teacher Training at Tranquil Space and Past Tense studios in Washington DC. My mission is to empower students to find their own path to health and well-being.
MY CLASSES & WORKSHOPS
I teach multiple weekly scheduled all-levels yoga and functional movement classes, myofascial release & self-massage, and occasional guided meditations and workshops. I also offer private individual and small group classes.
Join me for one of my regularly scheduled classes this week:
ONLINE YOGA FOR 50+
Mondays @ 12 noon ET
A gentle yoga class tailored for older adults who prefer a slower-paced practice. I tailor the poses to accommodate the needs of different bodies. All levels are welcome. Free!
ONLINE SLOW FLOW YOGA FOR STRESS RELIEF
Mondays @ 6 pm ET
All-levels slow flow yoga and meditation via Zoom. A gentle flow that links poses and breath work for a practice that will ground you in the present. 60 minutes.
SLOW FLOW AND MEDITATION AT PAST TENSE STUDIO ONLINE
Wednesdays @ 7 pm ET
This 60-minute class includes 45 minutes of movement, and 15 minutes of meditation to leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed.
YOGA FOR FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT
Saturdays @ 930am ET
This all-levels yoga class is all about building and maintaining stability and ease in your body through functional movements like reaching, lunging and squatting, some "traditional yoga" warrior poses and sun salutations, ending with a brief meditation to complete the connection between mind and body.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE & SELF-MASSAGE
Sundays @ 430 pm ET
Myofascial release is the technique of applying gentle pressure on the connective tissue that holds our body together. With age, overuse, and inactivity, this tissue, called fascia, can become sticky and dehydrated, leading to stiffness and pain.
In this class we will use small exercise balls, foam rollers and yoga blocks to focus on common problem areas like the knees, hips, neck and shoulders – each week we will highlight one specific area.
