Online Classes

"And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal. And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed." - Kitty O'Mera

Triad Yoga is pleased to offer live Zoom classes for all our students while the studio is temporarily closed. 


It would be nice to have a yoga mat, a yoga strap, a block or 2, and a blanket.  Neck ties make great substitutes for straps and thick beach towels can become yoga blankets.


You can access the Zoom class from your computer.  You will have video and audio access.

Triad Yoga 300 Hr Teacher Certification Program - Module 2 Information

Triad Yoga's 300 Hour Teacher Certification Program Module 2 was canceled in March due to studio operating restrictions related to COVID-19.  Instead of prolonging the module with a later date or having a long weekend of virtual classes, Terry has decided to break the module down into 3 hour classes, over a 2 month period. These modules will be presented in virtual format and you can participate right in the comfort of your home!  The  anatomy and yoga asana classes are all related to the hips, pelvis, and lumbar spine. This module includes pranayama classes, philosophy talks, and classes on mastering teacher instructor skills. There will be a total of 8 teacher training classes.

Module 2 Workshop Class 2: Anatomy for Yoga Teachers - The Lumbar Spine, Pelvis, and Hip Joint 

Understanding anatomy and how the muscles are integrated into the practices of Yoga asana offer a successful way for Yoga teachers to help prevent injuries.  When Yoga teachers understand how the bones align as well as how the muscles effectively both move the joints and hold the body in place, the result is the student will be able to practice without pain and overcome many physical limitations.  This workshop class is both lecture and asana practice.

It will be held on Saturday, May 30th, 9:00AM - 12:00PM.  Workshop cost is $30.00 and registration is available under "Workshops".

Module 2 Workshop Class 3: Sequencing Laboratory 

Mastering how to sequence a yoga class is an important art and skill for any successful Yoga teacher.  While there are many approaches to consider when sequencing, one method is to address a focus pose.  A focus pose sequence is a sequencing style in which you select a challenging pose and then create a program that will sensibly prepare the body to get there.  Attention can be offered during the sequence to pragmatically and logically prepare the body for the more challenging pose.  This method can help students gain confidence.  Even as they may not achieve the final focus pose, they can see the pathway toward increasing their own level skills.  This will be an interactive workshop with exercises and sharing!

It will be held on Friday, June 5th, 5:30PM - 8:30PM.  Workshop cost is $30.00 and registration is available under "Workshops".

Module 2 Workshop Class 4:  The Mechanics of the Low Back, Pelvis and Thighs in Backbends

The ability to perform a safe and effective backbend depends on several factors.  The body needs to be strong in the back and hip extensor muscles.  The hip flexors along with the chest, abdomen and front thighs must be open.  This class will take us through a sequence that addresses the areas that we to focus on to help ourselves and our students be comfortable in backbends and maintain an easy, steady breath during practice.

It will be held on Saturday, June 6th, 9:00AM - 12:00PM.  Workshop cost is $30.00 and registration is available under "Workshops".

Module 2 Workshop Class 5: Esoteric Anatomy: Asana, Prana and the Vayus

The energy that flows through the body is called Prana, and it is carried through our bodies through something called a Vayu. Vayu translates to "wind," and our Vayus are responsible for transferring energy throughout the body.

Although Vayus are subtle, they have a huge impact on how our bodies feel. From time to time, due to various reasons, the Vayus go out of sync and leads to an imbalance not only in the body but also in the mind and the spirit. Regular practice of Asana and Pranayama manage the smooth functioning of these Vayus.  Paying attention to this Pranic energy system is a highly effective alternate method of keeping the mind, body and spirit coordinated.

It will be held on Saturday, June 13th, 9:00AM - 12:00PM.  Workshop cost is $30.00 and registration is available under "Workshops".

The Yoga Wall(tm) Workshop - June 26th - 28th, with Terry Brown

Terry Brown will the offer The Yoga Wall(tm) Workshop, June 26th - 28th.

This workshop is going virtual!

To be in line with our state and local officials on COVID-19 business operations, this workshop will be presented virtually.  So now you can participate in the training of the many uses of the Yoga Wall right in your own home or studio.  The price is being adjusted to reflect the possibility you may not be able to participate fully if you don't have all the Yoga Wall props.  But you can still learn through observation when you can't practice with me!

Each class will include demonstrations, and then time for you to duplicate the practice.

If you don't have a Yoga Wall handy to train on, there are ways to recreate some of the wonderful practices the Yoga Wall can offer us. Just contact me at  for questions.

This workshop will teach you how to use the Yoga Wall(tm) to enhance poses that you usually practice in the center of the room.  Using the wall and wall straps allows the body to be held and supported, creating space and openings in the body that may seem elusive.  The wall and its accessories can help you to find actions in the poses and evolve your practice to new levels.

This workshop will help yoga instructors have more tools for their classroom experiences.  For the student of yoga, this practice will offer many options for home use.  Or just come for the fun experience of practicing on the Yoga Wall(tm).

The practices including standing poses, hip openers, twists, backbends, forward bends and inversions.  Therapeutic applications for the Yoga Wall(tm) will also be presented.

Terry Brown has studied extensively with Bryan Legere, the co-founder of the Yoga Wall(tm).  Terry's teacher, Aadil Palkhivala, inspired the Yoga Wall(tm) with his teachings and is the creator of the Spinal Rejuvenation Series, a practice on the Wall that helps to heal the spine and reverse the effects of aging.
