Guest Yoga Teacher Rony Ghoraishy
Rony fell in love with yoga the first time she stepped foot on her mat 15 years ago. Yoga is the one thing that has helped her stay grounded through all of life’s trials and tribulations. She is E-500 RYT certified in Hatha Yoga through Corepower Yoga, Loyola Marymount University and Wanderlust Hollywood. She specializes in Vinyasa Flow, Yin/Restorative Yoga, Yoga Sculpt and Aerial Silks. Rony focuses primarily on private yoga lessons where she tailors the class specifically to the client’s needs and personal goals. She has successfully merged her passion of travel with her passion to teach yoga and has lead numerous international retreats yearly to Tulum, Costa Rica and Bali, in addition to monthly themed day-retreats from her home base in Los Angeles, California.
Rony is passionate about teaching yoga to all levels through the connection of mind, body and soul. Her accessible teaching style, energy and motivation to challenge people, draws in students from all backgrounds and levels. What sets Rony apart from other teachers is her class sequencing, her hands on adjustments and the supportive and non-judgemental space she creates. Rony is currently enrolled in USM’s Spiritual Psychology program and infuses her learnings into her day-to-day teachings.
Rony’s philosophy is and always has been for students to listen to their body and modify poses as needed. Yoga is so much more than just the asana- yoga is about breath, connection to the body, noticing the fluctuations of the mind and overall mindfulness both on and off the mat. The beauty of yoga is that with practice, it teaches to still mind and to draw attention inward. In modern day society the norm is to rush from one task to another without taking the time to reflect inward. Rony’s teaching style and practice safely creates space for students to contemplate a theme and compassionately observe it in a playful yet reflective way.
Transforming Your Dreams Into Reality
During this workshop Rony will lead you through a guided meditation and breathwork to set you up in a supportive way to write out your life’s ideal scene. You will learn how to manifest your dreams into reality by visualizing and stepping forward into them to bring forward the life you want to authentically live. This powerful work sets you up for not only a goal line manifestation, but also soul line ideals to allow you to move into your true power. Be aware: this work is powerful and may lead you to a happier, more grounded and optimistic truer version of yourself! Price is $25 or all three for $65.
For many people the thought of going upside down triggers a response of fear. The road to a perfectly balanced headstand is usually paved with a few painless falls along the way, but inversions don’t have to be panic inducing. During the inversion workshop, Rony will break down postures while ensuring her students safety and FUN!
There are many benefits of inversions like Shoulder stand, Headstand, and Forearm Balance. Not only do they strengthen the arms, legs, back and core abdominal muscles, but they also teach us the principle of “drawing into the mid-line,” which helps strengthen the core and can be really helpful for improving standing postures and alleviating any lower back pain. Inversions also help the flow of oxygenated blood to the brain, sensory organs and the face. Learn to get upside down with Rony and have fun during this workshop! Price is $25 or all three for $65.
