Flight School: Arm Balances & Inversions

w/ Sammi Mallet

Suggested Donation: $10-20

**Limited Space Available. Please Sign-Up Here in Advance**

Building up the spirit of advanced poses by breaking down the physical challenges. You can do it!
This MONTHLY workshop series will focus on some of the more challenging Asanas, Inversions, and Arm Balances and incorporating these often illusive postures into a flow. We’ll break down the mechanics of these Asanas to approach them with from a more studious and practical direction with ample opportunity to ask questions and attempt postures you never knew you could do.
We’ll start with a centering, juicy flow to warm the body and proceed into the depths and details of the asanas as we come to them and finally see what the body remembers by plugging them back into the pace of the flow.
Learning how to invert, fly, and balance on one’s arms is as much about facing one’s fears as it is about facing Gravity. It’s as much about belief and confidence in one’s self as it is about Putting down one’s burdens and letting go of doubt. It’s as much about finding strength and flexibility in one’s spirit as it is about finding supple softness in one’s body. But it is mostly about practice, practice, practice.

Vayus:

Prana in yoga means Life-force or breath. Vayus translates as winds. The Hatha Yoga Pradipika tells us there are 5 inner winds of prana or energy in the body. Harnessing these winds creates greater awareness in the subtle body as well as offering a way to turn inward (similar to the chakra system).

Bring a pen, notebook, and water. This practice will offer you a chance for reflection, a glimpse into the subtle body and an opportunity to move more skillfully in your physical practice!

Thanksgiving Pretox

Suggested Donation: $5-15

** Limited Space Available. Please Sign-Up Here in Advance**

 

The holidays can be a tumultuous time of year for many of us. Physical, mental and emotional stress can take a tole, FAST. Break the stress cycle with a practice that will help you to find balance and create healthy boundaries for yourself. Join Sedona Alvarez as she leads you through a fusion of her two favorite asana practices, Vinyasa and Yin. Sedona leads you through an all levels Vinyasa sequence using simple, effective techniques to tone and strengthen the body in less time. Once you are feeling warm, open and more comfortable in your own skin, you are more prepared to surrender into deep stretch. In Yin yoga, we find stillness, using time + gravity to gently release soft muscular tissue and stretch deep connective tissue. The process of digging into the darker crevasses of ourselves requires a willingness to dive into murkier, emotional waters. By allowing yourself to be safely guided through this practice, you facilitate the healing process. Leave class with more energy, feeling prepared give and receive more fully.

Living in Harmony w/ the Winter

w/ Megan Hettich

Suggested Donation: $25

** Please Sign-Up Here in Advance**

 

As we experience winter, we are among the most Yin seasons of the year with cold, dark, slow, inward energy. It can be a tough time of year for many, and at times, seem dreadfully long. But, if we can learn to tune in to what nature is telling us, it can be a very powerful season for our health. It’s the time of year to rest, allowing our bodies to renew and regenerate. We can allow ourselves to shift our focus and energy inward, spending more time in meditation, reflection, and self-care.

In the first part of our workshop, we’ll discuss an overview of the seasons according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. We’ll take a deeper look at which organs and emotions are associated with the winter season, finding ways to bring more balance into our lives during this time of year. During winter, the element is water, the color is black, the taste is salty, and the emotion is fear. It’s a time to nourish ourselves both physically and spiritually. From an internal perspective, it’s the season related to the kidneys and bladder. We’ll dive deeper into bringing harmony into our organs through our activities and diet.

In the second part of our workshop, we’ll get moving with a Hatha style yoga class, targeting the organs & meridians associated with winter. All levels of yogis welcome, as modifications will be offered throughout class. Our focus will be on postures that bring revitalization and strength to the kidneys and bladder, preparing your body for the winter season upon us. You’ll leave this workshop with better self-awareness, as well as cleaner space in the body and mind to take advantage of all the benefits the winter season has to offer.

Bring a notebook, pen, and yoga mat.
