Basic Yoga


This class is taught by:

Marga Cava

Marga Cava, PhD, E-RYT 200, started practicing yoga in high school, and it quickly became an integral part of her life. While studying Romance languages and living abroad, she studied with Iyengar masters and Buddhist and Tantric philosophers. After returning to the U.S., Marga began studying Anusara yoga with John Friend, Emily Huresky, Regina Grassia, and others. Her gurus and their method inspired her to begin teaching in 1999. More recently, Marga completed Wisdom Warrior Teacher Training with Desirée Rumbaugh and Karen Church. Marga bows in gratitude to all her teachers (family and friends) that have guided her on her journey.
As a Registered Yoga Alliance and Anusara-inspired teacher, Marga strives to facilitate a deeper understanding of bio-mechanical alignment and help her students tap into their inner wisdom and true light. Now, as co-founder of Align Amar Yoga, yoga instructor and high school teacher, she hopes to enrich her community by offering the practice of yoga, meditation, and mindful living.

Christine Dates

Christine loves teaching yoga to all, but always feels a special connection to those who initially thought yoga wasn’t “for them." Her classes are alignment based yet flow fluidly, a balance of strength and ease. Christine's personality is heavily represented in her teaching style - sincere, straight-forward, and light-hearted, with a healthy dose of humor sprinkled in. Christine completed her initial 200 hour Teacher Training in January 2015 at YogaWorks in Los Angeles. Since then, she has trained in Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, yoga with a trauma-sensitive approach, and is currently advancing her certification to the 500-hour level. Christine believes that yoga is for every body, and that the flow we find on our mats guides us to greater presence, awareness and connection within our lives off the mat. www.christinedates.com
