Larry Thraen will be leading this Yoga Alliance CE accredited workshop and is mentor to so many yoga instructors including two of your favorite instructors from Some Like it Hot Yoga and FitnessGem HappyHeart and Kristen Filloramo Mueller!

The workshop will focus on making the distinctions between traditional and strength based back-bending. We'll discover what is functionally safe vs. what may be 'over-prescribed' during many common yoga asana classes. 

From hand and wrist foundational strength, to forearm, upper arms shoulders, entire back to glutes , hamstrings and quads, this class will be fun and challenging in all the areas mentioned. 
Beginner curious to back-bendy friendly, there wil be something to take away from these exciting backbends to empower students to a new level.

More about Larry Thraen:

Yoga discovered Larry when he was training for marathons. In order to keep his body well despite an intense weekly running regimen, he intuitively combined stretching with breath. While living in NYC, he attended his first yoga class and realized he had been doing yoga all along.

Between 2007-2011, Larry completed over 1100 hours certification as a certified yoga teacher trainer through the School Yoga Institute. He considers himself fortunate to have studied extensively under Vinnie Marino, Bryan Kest, Annie Carpenter, Steve Ilg, Mark Blanchard and Kathryn Budig.

Larry believes yoga is a powerful way to stay connected. Through a devotional practice, bhakti, one can cultivate deeper spiritual, physical, and emotional connections with the self as well as others. “Pleasure is the body, Happiness is in the mind, Joy is in the spirit.” Larry now keeps his calendar full leading workshops and classes at many of Houston’s premieres studios and leads 200 & 300 hour advanced studies as well as yoga teacher trainings.

When not running, mountain biking, surfing, or traveling, he may be found learning new ways to optimize his life, and searching for ‘hole in the wall’ eats. Come and Join Larry and myself in a Blissful asana experience with singing bowls.
