Rhae Mozley: M.ED., RYT 200E RYT 300 Yoga Teacher
Offering a “Yoga Stretch for Boomers” class on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. This class uses yoga as medium to develop body and breath awareness when those skills are a little rusty. Deep stretches working with the breath helps to bring new life to the body. Balancing is emphasized in standing poses and movement is incorporated to encourage the awareness of balance and importance of strength in everyday activities. The Tuesday class is a “Gentle” class, but that doesn’t necessarily mean easy! Thursday’s class is for anyone who enjoys a slower paced class or who feels they can’t “do” a regular yoga class. Attention to alignment and movement with intelligence are emphasized in both.
My designation is RYT 200E and RYT 300 – sometimes this is referred to as RYT 500. – RYT means Registered Yoga Teacher. An RYT 200E indicates at least 1000 hours of teaching since obtaining that designation.
My basic certification, which had an emphasis on yoga as therapy, is from Annapolis, MD was obtained in 2007. My teachers included nationally recognized presenters such as Richard Miller, Todd Norian. Doug Keller, and Judith Anodea. I have an advanced 300-hour certification in Yoga as Therapy from Asheville Yoga and have also completed almost an additional 300 hours of self study through workshops and online work. Some of these include workshops on Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga for Seniors, Breathwork and Viniyoga . Additional workshops were designed to focus on working therapeutically for various parts of the body – hips. backs, shoulders and working with fascial release.
When not studying, I enjoy the usual benefits of retirement life – gardening, pickleball, redecorating , friends and grandchildren.
“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.” Is a quote by B.K.S. Iyengar. Yoga is not a cure-all, but with effort and focus, it can help us to live in our bodies more comfortably. It also is just fun and we all need a little bit of that in our lives.
