Restorative Yoga
with Simone Palmieri

Fridays (ongoing)

5:30 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.

Whether we realize it or not, our bodies spend much of the day in a “flight-or-fight” mode---fighting heavy freeway traffic or the most recent flu virus. Restorative yoga helps put our bodies back in a “rest-and-digest” mode, which promotes healing from a range of ailments and injuries. In this class, Simone will lead you through a series of stretches to begin to relax your nervous system. You will then learn how to rest in postures, supported by blankets, bolsters and blocks so that your body can engage in “the relaxation response.” Simone will teach you which poses are best for ailments such as low back pain, anxiety and insomnia, or tight neck and shoulders. Even if you are perfectly healthy, you might discover some hidden tension you never knew you had. So, join us, and restore! No experience necessary.

Cost:

$70 for Feb./Mar., if registered one week in advance / $75 after

Refine and Deepen Your Yoga Practice
with Jennifer Sadugor

Sunday, May 4, 2014

11 a.m. - 2 p.m.

When we practice, we move into our poses, we align and possibly re-align, stretch, (sometimes) remember to breathe.

What happens next? Is there something that is supposed to happen that takes us more deeply into our practice? Is it more challenging poses? More stretching?

This workshop will explore this concept of deepening our practice through a variety of asanas, a short pranayama practice and closing with savasana. Through our practice together, we will individually learn how to take our practice to another level.

A minimum of six months yoga experience required.

Jennifer Sadugor, B.A., Certified Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist, is owner of The Yoga Solution. She has been practicing yoga for 24 years. Her primary teachers are Donald Moyer and Judith Hanson Lasater.

“The body is my temple; the asanas are my prayers.”
- B.K.S. Iyengar


Cost: $60

Penetrating the Layers
with Ramanand Patel

September 20, 2014

10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
and 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

This wokshop is presented in two parts.

In the first part we will look at some more advanced postures, how to break down these poses into various parts by knowing their primary and secondary movements related to simpler basic postures, common mistakes, problems and soultions.

In the second part, time permitting, we will be explore the art of recognizing physical, physiological, organic, pranic, sensory, and meditative levels in various progressive ways, leading from Annamaya Kosha of Sthula Sharira (gross body) to Ananadamaya Kosha of Karana Sharira (causal body). We will look into the positions of the fourteen major nadis and see some of their relation to the yogic model of the body. This inquiry into the yoga practice will be directed towards understanding the nature of mind in asana practice and its relation to the Self.

This workshop is appropriate for teachers as well as students who have been practicing yoga for at least one year.

Ramanand’s extensive, distinct, and lifelong yoga experiences inform both his yoga practice and his teaching style. He is recognized and respected internationally and many in the yoga community regard him as one of the world’s foremost yoga instructors. Ramanand actively encourages both learning and sharing of ideas amongst his students and peers.
