Agni Moksha 300 Hour YTT Program

Agni Moksha (fire of liberation) is a 300 hour yoga teacher training program led by senior teacher Erica Taxin Bleznak. Structured as a journey of self-study from the outside in, this advanced teacher training includes comprehensive asana study, intelligent sequencing, a detailed and in-depth look at pranayama, and personal self-inquiry work. 

Guest teachers include Julie Pogachefsky who will lead weekends in Pranayama and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Yoga Sutras, and the Bhaghavad Gita. Brenda McMorrow and Yvette Om will lead a Bhakti Yoga weekend, including Mantra and harmonium instruction. Ben Fleischer, an acupuncturist who integrates his tools as a massage therapist, Reiki Healer, and Zero Balancer, will teach an “east meets west” approach to anatomy- combining his 15+ years of integrative practice.

Erica Taxin Bleznak (E-RYT 200, MSW) began her yoga practice in 1995 in the Ashtanga yoga tradition, after suffering an injury while training for a marathon. That injury, unbeknownst at the time, was a gift that led her to the path of Yoga. In 2005, Erica met her primary teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll and completed the Pranakriya Yoga Teacher Training. She has been teaching classes and private yoga for over 11 years, and is continually amazed at the transformative aspects of the Practice. Erica believes that with patience, awareness, breath, and sincerity each asana becomes an invitation to know who we truly are.

Erica is deeply grateful for her teachers who have always guided her back to herself-to find the answers within- and continue to support her on this incredible journey: Her primary teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll, Connie Beaudoin, Paul Hedderman and Adyashanti.

Lori McAlister (E-RYT 500, YACEP) has been teaching yoga since 2004, but her practice began almost a decade earlier in college where she studied modern dance and choreography. Her classes draw upon these 20 plus years of experience studying with everyone in New York City she could. Stand out teachers include Dharma Mitra, Sharon Gannon and David Life, Alan Finger, Cyndi Lee, Twee Merrigan, Coral Brown, Shiva Rea, Rodney Yee, Colleen Saidman, Kaustaub Desikachar, Schuyler Grant, Alex Auder, Nikki Villela, David Regellin, Allison West, Elena Brower and countless other vinyasa teacher colleagues.

Having now taught all over the globe, Lori loves being a yoga educator. In 2012, Lori created Sequencology, a yoga teacher training that combines intelligent sequences along with subtle body support to effectively transport the practitioner into homeostasis.

Lori’s classes focus on the power of breath, anatomical alignment, and subtle body energetic awareness. The combination of these elements can open a portal for self-healing by calming the central nervous system and resetting the rest and digest function.
