Yin (Deep Stretch) Workshops
Saturdays, October 7th, 14th & 21st
10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
with Kerianne Sidoti, RYT

 

These 3 workshops focus on releasing the “issues in our tissues”!   Attending all 3 workshops is encouraged, however, not required.

With a busy on-the-go lifestyle, most of us don’t take much time to step out of our norm – or our comfort zone.  Balancing our busy lives is not easy, but is very important.  Yin yoga is a way to focus on the quieter side of our lives, which is often overlooked.  We hold many of our stresses in our joints and the connective tissues of our body.  Yin focuses on releasing the “issues in our tissues” and cultivates patience with our mind and body.

Poses in Yin Yoga are passive, usually on the floor and typically held for 3-5 minutes.  This static stressing of the connective tissues causes the body to reshape and strengthen these tissues, making them more flexible.  This time frame also cultivates stillness in our mind and body allowing space for us to be mindfully in the moment.

$80 for all 3 or $30 each.

Introduction to Bhakti
Saturday, December 2nd
5:00-7:30 p.m.
with Christine McIntosh

Bhakti Yoga is a yogic path of love and devotion. The Sanskrit word bhakti comes from the root bhaj which means “to adore or worship God”. It is a path to love, self-realization and experiencing oneness with everything that surrounds you. In this workshop you will learn the origins and history of the Bhakti yoga path, experience the rituals of a bhakti practice, including deity worship and dedication, and explore your connection with whatever you consider to be Divine. We will join for a one hour discussion followed by a love and light-filled hour-long asana practice exploring devotional mantra and Puja, a multi-sensory observance of ritual and worship.

At the heart of Bhakti yoga is surrender, or Ishvara Pranidhana. Surrender yourself to expand your awareness and connections with loved ones, community, nature and the spirit that surrounds us all.

“Mature in yoga, impartial everywhere that he looks, he sees himself in all beings and all beings in himself.” – Bhagavad Gita 6.29

$25 per person.
