Native Yoga Center: A Vibrant Palm Beach Destination by Paul Rowe

Offering Ashtanga yoga and native yoga Vinsaya classes, traditional Thai massage, Thai massage certification training, monthly workshops, native yoga teacher training, and much more, Juno Beach’s Native Yoga Center keeps Palm Beach yoga culture alive, vibrant, and thriving.

Co-founders of Native Yoga Center Todd and Tamara McLaughlin have been part of Florida’s burgeoning yoga scene for over a decade, and Native Yoga Center has stood apart from other studios in the area because of their many years of experience in the field of yoga and bodywork.

“My wife Tamara and I opened Native Yoga Center eleven years ago here in Plaza La Mer in Juno Beach,” Todd McLaughlin said. “We were originally inspired to share the practice of yoga from our marvelous teachers in India.”

For the last 11 years, Native Yoga Center has proudly remained a family owned and operated yoga studio. Together, Todd and Tamara have cultivated an extremely calming, peaceful, and dedicated environment where locals and visitors of all ages and backgrounds alike are able to initiate and deepen their connections to yoga.

“Native Yoga Center is directed by teachers who have close to twenty years of experience practicing and teaching yoga to people of varied backgrounds,” McLaughlin said. “We offer down to earth instruction that is made accessible by anyone who has a sincere desire to learn authentic yoga.”

Todd and Tamara have brought the people of Palm Beach together through their shared commitment to the study and practice of one of the world’s most ancient and celebrated activities. Providing the local community with uncommonly inspired teacher training for the past nine years has invigorated the people of Juno Beach and the greater Palm Beach region.

“Many of the graduates of our program have gone on to open their own studios and serve their local communities by teaching yoga classes in a multitude of various environments,” McLaughlin said. “Our Teacher Training program is the culmination of many years of study and practice with a continued commitment to inspiring excellence.”

The rich diversity, inspired instruction, and enthusiasm for improvement at Native Yoga Center is simply contagious. Thanks to Todd and Tamara, passion for self-improvement is growing in Juno Beach.

Craniosacral Therapy for the Cardiovascular System

Taught by Michael J Shea, PhD

July 22-23, 2017

Juno Beach, FL

Native Yoga Center is please to announce that Michael Shea will be offering a continuing education course for Licensed Massage Therapists this coming weekend on July 22 &23, 2107. Michael typically travels the world teaching Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and we feel honored to host him in his hometown of Juno Beach, Florida.

This course bridges skills from Craniosacral Therapy to the vascular system. In particular, the various “tides” of the craniosacral system will be referenced through their activity in the cardiovascular system.  Of particular interest will be the long tide as it is called in Biodynamic Osteopathy. Based on new scientific information, Craniosacral Therapy palpation will be used to increase the function of the major arteries of the body.  The tone of the arteries is controlled by the autonomic nervous system which regulates the tension in the artery. Students will learn what a balanced artery feels like to lower stress in the client.

You can read more about Michael’s work by visiting his website here. http://sheaheart.com

Day 25 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – Prana Wind

Day 25 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – Prana Wind  
In yoga culture, prana is the word that describes the energy that is associated with air. Prana often refers to the relationship between our breath and our personal sense of vitality. Vayu, the lord of the wind, is considered the primal force that generates life and can be harnessed through our breath. Today in South Florida the wind is “cranking!” The wind has the ability to stir our emotions and can breath some life back into our senses. Sometimes people feel unsettled by the wind, however it is possible to harness that anxious sensation and turn it into zest for life and renewed vigor. If it is windy where you are, go outside and stir your prana a bit by enjoying the wind.
