July, 2016 – December, 2017
Created by Joyce Bernt and Fernanda Thedim, Mais Yoga Por Favor (More Yoga, Please) is a beautiful charity project that offers free Yoga classes in exchange for donations to non-profit organizations that help the underprivileged in Rio de Janeiro. Every month, it gathers around 100 people to practice Yoga, share love and friendship in a beautiful outdoor setting. I have had the privilege to contribute both as one of the organizers and as an instructor since it started in July of 2016, until December 2017 when I left Brazil.

Mastering inversion poses such as sirsasana (headstand), adho mukha vrksasana (handstand) and pincha mayurasana (forearm balance), takes time, daily practice and effort. The goal of this workshop was to provide students with a deeper understanding of these poses via step-by-step exercises that lead to a given inversion. The ultimate goal of this workshop is to build students’ confidence and to provide them with tools that they can apply to their own practice.
