Be sure to check out the YOGATHON fundraising event I am organizing, benefiting people impacted by cancer at Cancer Support Community-Benjamin Center. The event is on Saturday, February 25, from 12pm – 6pm at Naam Yoga LA and features 10 of LA’s leading yoga teachers…some of my all time favorites! You can learn more about the event and register at www.yogathonla.org and it is free to register. Each registrant agrees to raise $500 — 100% of which will help provide free cancer support programs, including 8 weekly yoga classes, free of charge for people affected by cancer. In exchange for the fundraising efforts, you receive a free personal fundraising web page, fundraising support, weekly YOGATHON Training Program classes, and so much more! Hope to see you on 2/25/12…or before at the YOGATHON Training Program classes.

Download this 3-Day Guest Pass to try Allyn Cioban’s signature yoga class Affirmation Flow™ at Naam Yoga in Santa Monica…free of charge.
Allyn will be at Naam Yoga every Monday and Friday from 7:30am – 8:45am and it would be her privilege to share the practice with you.
Allyn Cioban has been passionate about health and fitness for as long as she can remember. She was a competitive gymnast and diver before she began her sixteen-year-long career as a fitness and group exercise instructor. Allyn took her first yoga classes in her late twenties from Shiva Rae and Seane Corn at Yoga Works, and immediately she felt a connection to the practice. She then began producing commercials and her yoga practice fell to the wayside. In 2001, September 11th shook Allyn to the core, and she immediately shifted her focus in life. She used her producing skills to raise funds for a nonprofit organization, Cancer Support Community. It is there that she was reminded about the mind body connection and of her passion for health and wellbeing. Allyn found her yoga practice again in 2005 when she began taking classes with Bryan Kest, Jerome Mercier and Rudy Mettia at Power Yoga, where you will often see her today! She completed her 200-hour Teacher Training with Tamal Dodge at The Yoga Collective, and is a registered vinyasa flow yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance.
Allyn has always been an avid believer in the power of positive affirmations and enjoyed repeating them to herself during her yoga practice. Inspired to share that powerful combination with her students, Allyn created Affirmation Flow™ yoga which has helped her overcome depression and hopelessness after 9/11; helped quiet her mind of habitual negative thoughts she had much of her life; helped improve her self esteem and body image; allowed her the awareness to deliberately choose empowering thoughts; helped her create a meaningful, personal spiritual practice; produced a sense of balance and wellbeing in her life; and strengthened and toned her body. Affirmation Flow™ integrates power/vinyasa flow yoga (breath linked to movement) with the application of precise alignment, visualizations, meditations, intentions and positive affirmations to create a meditative and healing flow. It is challenging enough for experienced practitioners, yet simple enough and totally approachable for newer yogis.
