We offer daily yoga classes, RYT 200 & 500 Teacher Trainings, 900 hr Yoga Therapy Certifications, Mindfulness Coaching, Yoga Therapy Counseling, workshops, art shows, movie nights, 3rd Friday performances, locally sourced clothing and gifts, massage, ecstatic dance events, fund raisers, meditations, or simply a place to share a cup of tea with a friend.  

The practices at Global Breath Studio are rooted in the understanding that we are all part of the same global family, where we share our resources and our compassion for all beings.

Everything that happens at Global Breath Studio is centered around our non-profit, LiveGlobally. Whether you take a yoga class, purchase a hand made soap, participate in a Teacher Training, or watch a movie, you are supporting your brothers and sisters across the globe.


Yoga

We honor the fact that the body expresses the unspoken; it is the calligraphic gesture of our interior condition. 

MindBody Centering Yoga is a powerful and effective Yoga Therapy practice, that has supported hundreds of people from all walks of life to access their true potential.

All classes, which range from powerful Ashtanga-based practices to healing Restorative Yoga, are by donation. There are also many Yoga Workshops throughout the year, to help deepen your understanding of the profound effects of Yoga.

Community 

Global Breath Studio is a place to "come home", a place where everyone is welcome. As we practice in community, we can support one another, and support those who may not enjoy the same opportunities that we do.

Currently we are helping to build and sustain an elementary school in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, and to support the Yoga for Youth program in the schools of the Triangle.  

Soon we will post the details of our upcoming service trip & Safari in Kenya, scheduled for Dec 10-20 2014! This will include working on the school, setting up a medical clinic, and spending several days in at David Sheldrick's Ithumba Camp in Tsavo National Park to visit the baby elephants!

Yoga Therapy

Based on the understanding that we can best access our deepest potential with the support of an empowering and compassionate professional, Yoga Therapy uses the techniques of Yoga to create, stimulate, and maintain an optimum state of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health, tailored to the needs of the individual. 

All of our Yoga classes and Teacher Trainings are infused with Yoga Therapy practices. Global Breath Studio is also home to the Triangle's first Yoga Therapy Clinic.

 

Teacher Trainings

Have you been thinking about becoming a Yoga Teacher? Or looking to deepen your practice? An MBCY Teacher Training Immersion provides the tools to manifest the life you want to live. 

We offer RYT 200 & 500 Teacher Training Immersions, and a 900 hour Yoga Therapy Certification. 

Our next RYT 200 Immersion (at Hillsborough Yoga) starts June 28, 2014. This is a 7 week intensive, ending with a contemplative 5 day retreat. Click here for more information and to register. 

Yoga Retreats

What if you could wake up at sunrise, sit in quiet meditation overlooking the azure waters of the Caribbean, enjoy a delicious vegetarian breakfast and then practice yoga on the beach?

And after lunch... go swimming with wild dolphins in their natural habitat?

All this, and much more, will happen during our first Dolphin & Yoga Retreat, August 17-22, 2014, on the beautiful island of Bimini. Space is limited, so make sure to register soon!

Elephants.jpg

When a baby elephant loses its family, it will die of loneliness. We all need to be nurtured by our community in order to thrive in life. For the past 3 years we have been raising money to help build the Ingrid School in Matopeni, one of the poorest slums in Nairobi (Kenya). For $0.50 a day you can feed and clothe a child, and pay for his or her education. 

 

In January of 2013 Bart & Nina visited Matopeni, and took a group of children from the Ingrid School to the Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary to meet the orphaned baby elephants. As one of the children remarked afterwards: "We can not take care of ourselves, unless we learn how to take care of the elephants". Please click below to find out how you can help support the children & the elephants.
