Svaroopa Yoga 4 week Session with Vidya Anderson, Ed.D Next held on Sat, Nov 25, 2017 at 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Sat Nov 4, 2017 - Sat Nov 25, 2017
Learn how to correctly prop yourself in Shavasana (corpse pose) to deepen this wonderfully healing pose. - Energize your body with cleansing Yogic Breathing. - Practice a series of yoga poses that are appropriate for people of all ages and fitness levels. - Learn more about Svaroopa Yoga and how its practice can improve body alignment, ease of movement, and overall well-being.
 
The focus of svaroopa yoga is the release of spinal tension. This spinal release begins with a pose to release the tension in the muscles surrounding the tailbone and ends with a pose to release tension in the neck and upper spine. The release of spinal tension lifts pressure off internal organs and glands, so that all body systems – including the digestive, circulatory, immune and respiratory systems – function better.
 
This class will focus on release of neck and shoulder tension as well as release of the upper and lower spine.
 
To ensure that each student receives the individual attention that he or she needs to obtain the maximum benefit from the poses, the class will be limited to a maximum of 10 students. This class will fill. Cost is $60 for the 4 week session.
 
Dates: November 4, 11, 18, 25
 
The workshop will run on Saturdays from 4:30-6:30
 
Cost: $60 for the series/$20 for Drop In

Intro to Home Energy Purification with Michael Spencer Sat, Jan 13, 2018 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Are you or your home feeling “stuck”? Is there a space in your home that you have wanted to clean out and haven't been able to get started? Have you accumulated belongings that may no longer be serving your highest good? If so, workshop is for you!
 
Our belongings, just like our physical bodies and the world around us, possess an energetic charge. Areas of your home that you have trouble clearing, sorting, or organizing often have stuck energy that reflects a “stuckness” within. Home Energy Purification is a process for shifting and transforming your energetic and emotional relationship with your belongings using mindfulness, intuition, and energy tools.
 
In this fun, informative, and experiential workshop, you will learn the basics of the Home Energy Purification process (mindful centering, intention-setting, tuning in with intuition, and how to use a variety of tools to shift energy) and have a practice experience with your own belongings.
 
Workshop participants are encouraged to bring a small box with an assortment of "stuck" personal items from a junk drawer/forgotten closet/ignored area of the home. These 10-20 items should belong to the participant her/himself. Family members, friends, and roommates are encourage to attend this workshop together - anyone who shares living space can benefit from learning how to shift both internal and external energies!
 
Pre-registration is required by January 11 2018,
 
The space is limited to 10 students.

This enrollment runs from Fri Jan 26, 2018 - Sun Jan 28, 2018
Living and being with our bodies is a tall order. Sitting back and witnessing our experience takes time and practice. Today's body is hurried, overworked, under exercised, stressed and depleted. When exercise does occur, it is quick, vigorous and sweat producing. We each have an opportunity to develop a relationship with our body through movement, breath and meditation that is unique. This Gentle Yoga Teacher Training shows us another way to connect with ourselves, through the subtle and the quiet. We do this by learning to listen, slowing down and paying attention. Gentle yoga is a the bridge between moving slowly and staying still. This program will look at various ways to teach Gentle Yoga to a wide variety of populations. We will cover practices for more able-bodied students, chair practices and floor practices of exploration. Pranayama and meditation will also be discussed.

Breath Work for Beginners with Lisa Stets Sat, Mar 3, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Taking time out to breathe each day, calms the mind, soothes the nervous system and strengthens the cardiovascular system. In this workshop, you will learn to breathe in a more efficient and functional manner by exploring and engaging the muscles used to breathe. You will learn how just a few minutes a day of breath practice can bring a sense of ease to the mind and body. We will explore the Yogic practice of Pranayama by exploring various forms of breathing. Prana means life energy and Yama means to control or focus. Practicing Pranayama increases our sense of aliveness and connects us to the awareness of our soul. We will dive into learning how breath can be used as healing tool and how breath can be a foundation for building a meditation practice. This workshop is open to all levels. No previous Yoga or breath experience necessary.

Teaching Restorative Yoga with Shelbi Miles & Jacci Gruninger Next held on Fri, Oct 5, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Fri Oct 5, 2018 - Sun Oct 7, 2018
Restorative yoga is a gentle inward form of yoga that invites participants to move towards greater balance, control and participation in their life. The participant’s body is placed in yoga postures that are supported with props. The mind is invited to slow down with the use of pranayama, visualization and mantra allowing the individual to turn inside. A restorative practice is a complement to any yoga practice or other form of exercise and perfect for almost any practitioner looking to experience a deeper state of relaxation and healing than Savasana or sleep. It is also a perfect practice for those recovering from injury or illness or anyone who experiences stress on a daily basis.

In this weekend restorative yoga training created from the Tantric Hatha Yoga Teachings, the work of Herbert Benson and Jon Kabat Zinn, participants will gain practical, hands-on experience and skills to work with a wide range of populations. The program will include posture practice, pranayama, meditation, mantra, mudra, visualization, and use of props to create a safe/comfortable/healing environment. Participants will leave the training confident in their ability to understand the philosophy and science behind restorative yoga as well as self-assured in their aptitude to lead their students through a complete restorative yoga practice.
