kids yoga at just plain yoga studioAbout Erika: In her personal life and professional career, Erika has found the laughter and smiles of others to be the most fulfilling. That is why one of her favorite hobbies is juggling and she refers to herself as Miss Erika Amerika.

Having taken every opportunity in her life to inspire people and put smiles on their faces, she began by earning a degree in Sociology and Psychology leading to a career in therapeutic situations and learning environments. In her life studies and employment, Erika has learned that mindfulness and positive thinking are great tools for all.

After practicing yoga for many years, Erika recognized that the benefits of yoga could be useful for children in their everyday lives so she became a certified Kids Yoga instructor through Kidding Around Yoga. She is also a certified 200 hour Kripalu yoga instructor.

You will find Erika meowing in the Cat Pose; barking in Downward Dog; and Kidding Around with the children in her class (and sometimes with adults).

yin yoga at just plain yoga studioAmrit Yoga Nidra-with certified yoga nidra teacher, Paul Herzer E-RYT-500

Amrit Yoga based guided relaxation for stress relief & rejuvenation

A paradigm shift from thinking and doing to feeling and being. During sleep, we drop beneath mental and emotional activity. Yoga Nidra literally means “yogic sleep.” In the meditative experience of yoga nidra, we transcend self-created perceptions and limitations. Sleep takes us below the mind, and meditation carries us beyond the mind.

Through a unique combination of alert awareness and profound relaxation, Yoga Nidra works by immersing the practitioner, simultaneously accessing the power of the logical left-brain and the intuitive right brain to align the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems back to homeostasis.

The Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra requires neither years of practice nor intellectual understanding. With focused attention  unconsciously held obstructions and energetic blockages are released, freeing you to actualize your intentions and live to your true potential.

About Paul: After 10 years and thousands of hours practicing the few authentic styles of Yoga Nidra, Paul trained directly under Yogi Amrit Desai in the Amrit Method Yoga Nidra. Amrit Desai is the last living yoga Grand Master; he and Dr. Kamini Desai developed Yoga Nidra over the last 25 years blending ancient wisdom with modern science. Paul was then personally invited to participate in the first Advanced Yoga Nidra Facilitator Training. He is a certified Master Yoga Nidra Facilitator and leads Amrit Yoga Nidra meditations all over the world.

Pranayama Workshop June 10th

with Paul Herzer, E-RYT-500

Everyone breathes. 
Since birth you've been breathing.
How and when should you be breathing in Yoga?

Pranayama (breathing exercises) aren't often taught to depth  in asana classes. Much of the available information is confusing or contradictory. In this class you will be taught and experience seven breathing techniques. 

Ample time will be given for practice and questions, as well as descriptions and contraindications, benefits, precautions and special circumstances. Knowledge of asana is not required, this class is designed for experienced yoga practitioners and teachers.


About Paul: Your workshop leader: Acharya Shambhu Anand (Paul Herzer) E-RYT-500 has studied with Yoga masters, asking "why?" "what does this do" and "where should my hands be?"   An internationally recognized yogi, Paul is a teacher in the Kripalu-Amrit Yoga traditions and is a senior student of the last living Yoga Master from the 1960s, Yogi Amrit Desai. Though Paul has enjoyed practicing multiple yoga and meditation styles in the past 15 years he is certified to teach Kripalu Yoga, Amrit Level I, Amrit Level II and is a registered Yoga Nidra Facilitator. Paul travels the East Coast deepening his practice through his love of learning and teaching. 

When not teaching or studying with Amrit Desai, Paul can be found chanting with Bhagavan Das, meditating with honey bees or pondering the mysteries of the Universe. He is lovingly grateful for all his teachers both far and near.

About Corina:

Corina Benner, Director of Wake Up Yoga, wholeheartedly believes that the ancient practice of yoga perfectly complements our modern pursuit of vibrant health, personal fulfillment, harmonious relationships and spiritual enrichment.

Viewing asana practice as an entry-point to self-study, Corina weaves the tenets of yoga philosophy into her teaching, inspiring students to discover how this age-old practice remains relevant today in their own lives both on and off the mat. Her positive vibrations and contagious optimism empower students of all levels to practice with enthusiasm, while her detailed instruction, poetic language and intelligent sequencing create a safe space for students to explore the landscapes of their body, mind, heart and soul. As a Teacher of Teachers Corina seeks to impart a deep and abiding reverence for the power of yoga, while also affirming her students’ unique experiences which give rise to his/her own authentic voice, and inspiring them to cultivate a sharp and discriminating mind that is softened by an open and receptive heart. In 2002, she opened Wake Up Yoga, inspired to create a warm and nurturing cOMmUNITY-centered yoga studio where people of all ages, stages, colors and flavors could come together with breath and movement, in silence and in laughter, to deeply connect with the underlying current that unites us all. She has been teaching a 200-hour Foundational Training since 2002, and Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings since 2005, and has taught both programs locally, nationally and internationally.

In addition to her initial training, Corina’s teachings and understanding of yoga have been influenced by more than 100 hours of Teacher Training with Rodney Yee; more than 70 hours of Teacher Training with Shiva Rea; and 270 hours of Teacher Training with Paul Grilley. As one of her primary teachers, Paul Grilley has imparted a deep respect for anatomical difference, which is the guiding principle behind alignment instructions in Yin Yoga. Corina’s understanding of chakras has been informed through study with Paul Grilley, and also nearly 50-hours of Training with Anodea Judith, and a 4-day Training with Kristine Kaoverii Weber . She has been a student of Sanskrit under the expert tutelage of Manorama, of Sanskrit Studies, and has been working on memorizing, chanting and writing the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali in Sanskrit with help and guidance from both Manorama and Paul JJ Alix, of Yoga for All. Corina recently completed a 500 hour Yoga Therapeutics Teacher Training at the IHYT in Ontario, Canada, exploring therapeutic applications of yoga to treat; anxiety and depression, cancer and end-of-life care, chronic pain and grief, along with study of structural alignment, and Ayurveda. She has been strongly influenced by Tibetan Buddhism and the teachings of Chogyam Trungpa as imparted largely by her Meditation Teacher, Michael Carroll, and has been fortified by a steady meditation practice since 1999. Her mind and perspectives have also been shaped by the writings of J. Krishnamurti, and her heart has been opened through the beautiful poetry of Rumi, Hafiz, Rilke, and Mary Oliver, just to name a few.

"Just Plain Yoga's program makes the 200 hour training accessible to teachers who want to further their yoga education while continuing to work full time." - Patricia

Her (full one-year or more) teaching training format allows ample time for full comprehension of material, attendance at required workshops and readings. Upon completion of the program, students leave confident with their own authentic voice. A transformational experience and the best teacher training in Central Pennsylvania!" -Susan

"I thoroughly enjoyed completing my RYT 200 hour training at Just Plain Yoga. Now that my training is complete, I feel confident in my capabilities as a yoga instructor. I feel educated not only in the area of yoga poses and techniques, but also in the anatomy of the human body and the process of meditation. I look forward to touching people's lives through yoga, as yoga has touched mine." -Renee

"I feel just plain yoga has prepared me to be the best yoga instructor that I can be." -Amanda

"An outstanding teacher training program with exceptional instructors in a professional and nurturing environment." -Brenda

"Just Plain Yoga teacher training is rigorous and fun. There is an emphasis on being well rounded, learning more than one style of yoga and still providing the the opportunity to "specialize" in either Hatha or Vinyasa. The required reading is designed to make you really think about the many topics in yoga, some controversial, in addition to providing expert guidance. There is plenty of time to practice teach during the modules, working in pairs with other students under the guidance of instructors. The anatomy training is based on applications to yoga and is immediately useful. The guest instructors for special topics like anatomy, history, and Sanskrit are excellent." -Sherra

"The best investment of time, funds and self that I have made in my 63 trips around the sun." -Gary
