  • YogaVibes Partners with Sean Gray

    Maybe you've already noticed. If not, I'm here to happily deliver the memo. YogaVibes has recently introduced a new yoga teacher into its ever-growing crew: Sean Gray.

    vashitasana

    Sean, a Vinyasa yoga teacher based in Santa Monica, California, holds a space where students can courageously journey through the practice, deeply connecting with the breath each pose along the way. His online yoga classes safely challenge students in every aspect of the practice - physically, energetically, mentally, and emotionally. By maximizing time, staying focused and present on each breath, Sean inspires breakthroughs in the practice and delivers lasting results. He teaches his students to accept limitations, move beyond them, and perceive challenges as life lessons rather than setbacks.

    Why YogaVibes?

    “I decided to team up with YogaVibes to shoot some online yoga classes because I believe there is a sea of potential yogis out there that are just waiting for the right teacher for them to come along,” says Sean. “I've always been grateful for all the amazing teachers that are in my area, how I get to choose from the greats who I'm going to practice with on a daily basis, and now with online classes the rest of the world can do the same. And YogaVibes has classes from some of my absolute favorites. I believe online yoga will be the introduction for many who wouldn't normally take the first step onto their yoga mats in a classroom for whatever reason, making yoga much more accessible for a lot of people by being able to go at their own pace in the their own spaces. YogaVibes not only offers classes from some of the best, it also offers the best teachers from many different systems of yoga. I'm honored to be a part of the team!”

    To get a feel for Sean’s teaching style, check out one of his popular yoga videos on YogaVibes: Get Up & Go!

    This online Vinyasa yoga class allows students to receive a full practice amidst a busy day. It is designed to promote an opening of some major areas of the body – the spine, hips, and shoulders. Expect to sweat, activate the core, restore balance, get the heart pumping, focus the mind, and build lots of energy through deep, concentrated breathing. (45 mins.)

    More about Sean Gray...

    Sean Gray's practice is focused on the expansion of all aspects of the self. By allowing the breath to bring awareness into the body and into the practice - within the movement, within the breath, within the stillness - the practice begins to reflect personal challenges to help promote development and healing. It may be an uncomfortable ride from time to time, but there is no growth in comfort, and Sean doesn't step onto his mat to be comfortable.

    What people are saying.

    • "Was surprised by how great this class was, short but gets right to it, had me breaking a sweat! Was able to fit in a practice on a busy day when I otherwise would've skipped it, so glad I did" ~Maria N

    From Sean’s website: Born in the Bay area, raised in Santa Monica, a true Californian by birth and by nature - grew up surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, playing sports, and raising hell. Never having yoga in my life, I used to be a ‘gym guy’ pumping iron to stay strong. As a young American man, that’s what we are told, “You want to stay in shape? Then get your ass to the gym, boy!” The gym that I belonged to at the time had yoga classes, but I resisted them fiercely, thinking they were for hippies and chicks. Boy, was I wrong!
