“Our breath is constantly rising and falling, ebbing and flowing, entering and leaving our bodies. Full body breathing is an extraordinary symphony of both powerful and subtle movements that massage our internal organs, oscillate our joints, and alternately tone and release all the muscles in the body. It is a full participation in life.” – Donna Farhi

Body, Mind and Soul: A Workshop in 3 Parts

BODY, MIND & SOUL

A 3-part workshop series for advancing your personal practice and teaching skills. Offered by Angie Folllensbee-Hall, YACEP Teacher. Yoga Alliance CEU credits are available for yoga teachers. Attend any of these classes in the series for a discount on the upcoming 300-hour Myriad Yoga Advanced Teacher Training Program starting in February, 2019 at Jai Studiosgo. Each workshop is $35 if paid more than a week in advance; price changes to $40 thereafter.


PART 1: Body—Structure and Access:
An Earth Elements Approach to Asana with Assists and Props

Saturday, October 27, 12:30-2:30

Using physical supports, props, and partner assists, discover how to access key structures in the body to build deeper spatial and kinesthetic awareness of the physical body structure. Practice will explore backbends, hip openers, supine twists, and partner assisted relaxation.

PART
2: Mind—Svadyaya: Self Study through Asana, Breath, Reflection and Meditation
Saturday, November 17, 12:30-2:30

An introspective sequence to guide the mind inward while exploring the elements of water and air. We begin with the physical structure as a doorway into the reflective mind. Tame your thought through fluid movement and in balance postures and forward folds, and then discover specific pranayama practices. Then, we will train the mind to passively observe thoughts and reactions in writing prompts and deep meditation. Gain insights into how to bring these methods into your practice and your teaching.


PART 3: Soul—Creativity in Sequence and Structure
Saturday, December 8, 12:30-2:30

When yoga is more than a physical exercise it will lead you to the discovery of spirit and soul. Explore easeful, fluid mobility and permeability as you develop creative sequencing for your own practice or for your teaching. Learn to distill the primary actions of an asana and explore range of motion within a structure through shoulders, hips, and deep meditation. Learn to feel your body from within through creative exploration of the place where body meets space and space meets soul. 


Register for one or all three here.

Rock the Pelvic Floor


Pelvic Floor Series Fall 2018


Saturdays, 10/20, 11/3, 11/10, 12:30-2:30 pm


This series of three classes is designed as a deeper dive into improving pelvic floor function through strengthening, relaxation, visualization, targeted breath work. We will touch on the anatomy of the core, how to discover and “feel” these deep muscles, as well as how to tone these muscles that are so important for our daily lives and our long term well-being. We’ll shed some light on “PVD” and have open-hearted discussion about this inconvenient issue that so many women share. You’re not alone!


$35 per class.

CBD and Yoga: Earth Energy

Curious about CBD?  Want to experience it in a safe, supportive environment?  This event is for you!  We'll be bringing CBD, a bioactive compound isolated from the hemp plant, into a full-body, slow-flow yoga practice led by Amanda followed by a meditative healing session with micro-massages.

Yogis Rachael and Andrew of Ropana LLC, will be offering CBD infusions for the experience.  Before the practice, you can try the Ropana Nectar CBD Tincture, which brings relaxed mental clarity, and/or one of their CBD salves for muscular relief.  This local company blesses all their CBD medicines with a healing mantra that means calm, collected, and mindful.  (Ropana means "to heal oneself" in Sanskrit.)  Rachael and Andrew will lead the class with a discussion on CBD and answer all your questions about this popular new medicine.  Then we'll do a sweet slow-flow yoga session to stretch all the sore spots, and finish up with short face and head massages during savasana.

This event is $25 until October 28 and $35 thereafter.  Register here.


Please note that CBD is non-psychoactive and will not get you high, though the yoga might!
