Terrence Monte instructs the following:
  • Hot Vinyasa (2/3)
  • Taught in the heated room, this style works through poses and sequences linked to breath. Sequencing will vary with instructor philosophy in this vigorous and fluid approach to yoga.

  • Vinyasa (1/2)
  • Vinyasa is characterized by flowing poses and sequences that are linked to the breath. This class is diverse and sequencing will vary with instructor philosophy and in general is a vigorous, more athletic approach to yoga.

  • Hot Vinyasa (2)
  • Taught in the heated room, this style works through poses and sequences linked to breath. Sequencing will vary with instructor philosophy in this vigorous and fluid approach to yoga.

  • Handstand 101: FUNdamentals of Inverting- Novice to Experienced Beginner
  • YOU can do a handstand. Yes. YOU. If you can't do one right this second, you will KNOW how to do one by the end of this workshop. We'll play with the foundations of handstand and diagnose the key strength requirements for all inversion. You can expect a mix of discussion, strength building GAMES pertinent to handstand, partner work, and personalized feedback so you can practice this in class or at home. Special attention will be paid on how to use the wall to your advantage, how to fall properly, and how to self-diagnose. This intimidating pose will be tamed through the use of games. We won't even handstand until the final 20 minutes! Please do NOT eat anything substantial 2 hours prior to starting.
     
    ABOUT TERRENCE MONTE

    Terrence Monte was a manager at Pure yoga for the past 5 years. He left the management side to pursue a degree in Oriental Medicine, but continues to teach at various locations around the city. He hopes to teach until the day he dies. Terrence synthesizes his background in mechanical engineering with his extensive knowledge of the body to create classes with humor, depth, intelligent sequencing, and transitions. He firmly believes that every class should be for every-body and offers all levels instruction in different styles to accommodate any interested student. Although these workshops focus on an advanced pose, Terrence will offer instruction to anyone with an open mind.
