Esther Ekhart and Ekhart Yoga are launching two new programs for September Yoga month. Both programs are designed for beginner to advanced level students and available online. One is called "7 days of yin yoga" and the other is "7 day power yoga challenge".
Ekhart Yoga is an online studio based in Europe and is offering seven days of free, unlimited access to the hundreds of yoga videos on Ekhart Yoga's website. Anyone can participate in this event no matter where they live in the world.
The goal of September Yoga Month is to promote an awareness campaign of yoga and to educate people about the health benefits of yoga while inspiring people to embrace a healthy lifestyle. When EkhartYoga asked the founder of September Yoga Month, Johannes R. Fisslinger, about its origins he stated “We were surprised that there was really no life-affirming awareness month. Breast cancer, diabetes, etc. are all focused on the problem, to fight the disease... but not to inspire a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, Yoga Month was created.” The event is coordinated by the Yoga Health Foundation, a non profit organization.
Each of Ekhart Yoga's programs for September Yoga Month include one class per day, each session building up to a longer class by the end of the week. On day one of the Yin Yoga program, Esther Ekhart teaches the style of this slow-paced Yoga. Yin Yoga encourages a deep release in a person's muscles and joints which is perfect for rejuvenation and recovery.
Power Yoga is a vigorous and strong style of Yoga and is available in the second week of September. Taught by Sandra Carson, it also includes a daily session all leading up to a longer class at the end of the week.
Ekhart Yoga's website also also offers a large number of Yoga programs for beginners and for those who really want a challenge. Whatever a person's preference, the September Yoga Month program is designed to deliver a daily practice for the a whole month.
On top of that, Ekhart Yoga is introducing two new guest teachers in September: David Lurey and Clayton Horton, both originally from the San Francisco Bay area.
