‘Bad Yogi’ Erin Motz is back at Princeton Yoga
March 25-26, 2017
Princeton Yoga is excited to welcome back ‘Bad Yogi’ Erin Motz. Erin moved to France 2 years ago, so we are thrilled to having her come back and teach at our center!
Erin is a carnivorous, red wine and French cheese-loving, world traveling yoga instructor based in Nice France. Erin is co-Founder of Bad Yogi & voice of real yogis everywhere and the creator of the Perfect Body Yoga Program which is centered around the belief that the “perfect” body is simply the healthiest version of the body you already have.
You won’t hear much Sanskrit in Erin’s workshops but you’ll probably get plenty of corny jokes, she believes yoga is for everyone and invites all good/bad/new/old yogis to come and practice with her. Teaching yoga is one of her greatest pleasures and her energy and joyfulness is infectious.

Bad Yogi is about embracing who you are and the authenticity of those around you. I’m Erin Motz and I don’t care whether you know your asana from your elbow– you are welcome here! We’ll chat a little before hand about the Bad Yogi philosophy, and then dive right into a fun, creative flow to leave you feeling joyful, inspired, and connected. Look forward to a feel-good flow with lots of intentional movement, plenty of hip-openers, twists, and a surprise to challenge you at the end. Expect to leave feeling empowered to be exactly who you’ve always wanted. This is friendly for all levels and will have modifications offered.
The Art & Science of Getting “Better” at Yoga
Saturday, March 25, 2017 – 2:30 to 4:30 pm – Sign up here
Get out of your own way, uncover why some “hard” poses elude you, and how to get over feeling stuck in your progression. How often do you wish you had different abilities? How much time do you spend criticizing yourself for what you’re not? It’s a habit we all get sucked into, but the good news is that it’s a habit, not a curse! Turning it around is entirely within our control. We have the power to change our perception of ourselves AND overcome the areas we’re stuck in. If you’ve ever gotten frustrated or upset for NOT being able to do something in your yoga practice, or if you’ve ever been embarrassed or uncomfortable with how you look, come to this workshop. You’ll be amazed at how much you can change in such a small amount of time.
Meditation for People Who Still Lose Their Sh*t
Sunday, March 26, 2017 – 12:00 to 2:00 pm – Sign up here
Practical ways to build a profound meditation practice that literally everyone can, and will actually WANT, to do. If you’ve been curious about the meditation and spiritual aspects of yoga but are intimidated by all the potential for hippie mumbo-jumbo, this workshop is for you. We’ll ease into our practice with a relaxing 30-minute flow geared towards slowing down, and then comes the fun part: we’ll practice several different meditations coupled with mantras you can actually use in your daily life, and journal/stream-of-conscious write between each one. This is basically an all-inclusive toolbox for anyone looking to cook up a meaningful meditation practice from scratch, or simply build on what they already have.
* Bring a journal & something to write with! You do not have to be a “writer” or even “good” at writing.

Meet Erin Motz
Erin Motz in her own words:
I’m the co-Founder of Bad Yogi & voice of real yogis everywhere. I’m also the creator of the Perfect Body Yoga Program which is centered around the belief that the “perfect” body is simply the healthiest version of the body you already have. In my spare time I’m a wine drinker, cheese eater, and not your average yoga teacher; I’ve been teaching yoga for over 12 years, but you won’t hear much Sanskrit, I totally forgive you if you don’t know your asana from your elbow, and I believe that yoga is for everyone, from the kale loving vegan to the prize winning deer hunter. I may be a Bad Yogi, but if I’m being totally honest, teaching yoga has been one of my greatest pleasures; I practice to feed my teaching, but I teach to feed my life.
