Kundalini Yoga Workshop (On Zoom Only)

with Sean Meyers

Sunday, December 6

11:00am - 12:30pm

Kundalini Yoga, brought to the West in 1969 by Yogi Bhajan, is known as the Yoga of Awareness. Kundalini yoga uses physical postures (Asana), breathwork (Pranayama), Chanting (Mantra), Body Locks (Bhandas), Hand Gestures (Mudras) and Meditation throughout the practice. Kundalini Yoga is done in sets or kriyas that are designed to work towards a specific outcome.

 

This class will entail a “Stress Set for Adrenals and Kidneys” as well as a meditation for fear.  In Chinese medicine and other ancient practices the organs are associated with specific emotions, and fear is the emotion associated with the kidneys. Often a physical disorder will actually stem from an imbalance in the emotion associated with that organ. The opposite can also be true, an imbalanced organ can heighten the specific emotion experienced. Therefore it is important to maintain balance and create a healthy feedback loop between our emotions and our physical body. This set will also work on the adrenals and glandular balance so that we will have healthier responses to stress. 

 

No prior experience necessary, all are welcome!

Participants will receive the Zoom link via email about half an hour prior to the start of the workshop.

Yoga Nidra (On Zoom Only)

with Tara Temple

Saturday, December 19

4:00pm - 5:00pm

Yoga Nidra (Divine Sleep) is a guided meditation that will awaken your whole being – the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual layers (called koshas). There is nothing required of you but to lie down and listen as you become aware of each layer without needing to change or fix anything. This is true meditation, where there is nothing to do but to ‘notice’ - supporting you in feeling empowered and whole just as you are. As your journey unfolds, you will become radiant, joyful, and light.

No yoga experience is required and every level of student is welcome. Especially nurturing for those with chronic illness, injury or pain.

Participants will receive an email containing the link to the workshop about half an hour before start time.

Yoga for Trauma 6 Week Series (In-Studio Only)

with Gail Gratzel

Wednesdays 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Nov 4 thru Dec 16 (no class Nov 25)

Yoga for Trauma is a six week program designed to empower those who have experienced trauma in their lives towards healing. Participants will develop skills and knowledge that can be incorporated into their every day lives. Each one of us has had a unique experience with trauma at some time in our lives, whether it is a heartbreak, violence/harm, loss of a loved one, car accident, workplace occurrence, or natural disaster. Trauma can be a response to anything that is experienced as too fast, too soon or too much. All bodies respond differently to trauma. Recent studies have shown that we heal primarily in and through the body.

 

This series will strive to offer participants a more positive connection to their bodies and inner selves by approaching the body with respect, acceptance and non-judgment. Participants will be provided with a safe place to explore the concept of making choices for themselves and acting on those choices.

 

This class will be 75 minutes in length, and followed by 15 minutes optional discussion. This program will be offered in studio only and not via Zoom.

 

Pre-registration required as space is limited to 6 participants.

Cost: $100
