Restorative Yin Yoga Series

with Ruby Alcartado

November and December

Fridays  |  Nov. 1 – 29 (No class the day after Thanksgiving)  |  4:30 – 5:45 pm

Fridays  |  Dec. 6 – 27  |  4:30 – 5:45 pm

In these classes we will focus on stretching and stimulating the connective tissue, in the pelvis, hips, lower back and spine. These are the areas of the body that can create difficulties as we age. Yin Yoga is a restorative practice where postures are held gently, for three or more minutes. Yin Yoga is done primarily on the floor or at the wall while the body is being supported with blankets and props, as needed. The long, meditative holds of Yin Yoga deeply calms the nervous system, quiets the mind, and gently releases muscle and connective tissues surrounding bones, ligaments, and joints. With a consistent and safe practice, Yin Yoga can reduce joint stiffness, increase mobility and body awareness, quiet the mind, and access the “rest and digest” parasympathetic nervous system resulting in a grounding, calming, and an energizing sense of rejuvenation. Additionally, on every fourth Friday of the series, Ruby will offer an extended period of Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.

Ruby has been studying and practicing yoga at The Yoga Solution since 2007. She completed The Yoga Solution 200-hour Advanced Studies/Teacher Training program in August 2009. Ruby also received her certification at Mama Tree Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training in January 2014 and Yin Yoga Teacher Training certification in December 2015. Ruby has been teaching since 2009 and continues to actively study, train and practice.

CLASS SERIES

Dayan (Wild Goose) Qigong

with Bob Rosenbaum and Jeanne Courtney

MONDAYS:  7:15-8:45 pm
8-week class series begins Oct. 28, 2019

Dayan (Wild Goose) Qigong is an ancient Taoist practice used in traditional Chinese medicine to promote health by facilitating circulation within the blood vessels and acupuncture meridians. It includes:
• warm-up exercises
• 64 flowing movements
• acupressure self-massage
• meditation

Dayan Qigong can offer benefit in as little as 15 minutes a day, making it ideal for stress management, but it is also deep enough it cannot be exhausted in a lifetime of practice.

Dayan Qigong was developed during the 4th century in China by a monk to promote health and deepen meditation practice. For many centuries it was passed down in secret until after the cultural revolution Grandmaster Yang Meijun began teaching publicly. With her encouragement, Master Hui Liu brought the practice to the United States at the Wen Wu School.

Bob and Jeanne are senior teachers from the Wen Wu school, certified by Master Hui Liu in the Dayan Qigong tradition of Master Yang Meijun. They each have over 20 years’ experience teaching qigong and have also taught at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco and at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Massachusetts. Bob has also founded Dayan Qigong programs in Amsterdam, Australia, and Finland, and instituted Dayan Qigong programs for Kaiser Permanente.

Bob and Jeanne have recently retired from their professional careers as a neuropsychologist and psychotherapist (Bob) and licensed clinical social worker (Jeanne) to devote full time to their qigong and meditation practices. Bob is entrusted as a Zen teacher by Sojun Weitsman Roshi.
