CLASS SERIES

Book Club on Zoom

with Sandy Christenson and Jennifer Sadugor

Monday Evening
Sept. 28, 2021
7:30 PM – 8:45 PM

Hello All – Yogis & Yogis Adjacent!

How fun, relevant, and comforting it will be to get together in a Zoom book club, meeting for an hour and 15 minutes, once a month, to discuss a really good book. We are reading Better to Have Gone: Love, Death and the Quest for Utopia in Auroville by Akash Kapur.  We hope you will join us (even if you have not finished the book)  for an interesting evening discussing our featured book. There is no cost for this social, online gathering. Log-in information will be sent to you once you sign up. We’re excited to host this fun, new gathering! 

Jennifer Sadugor is passionate about yoga (as most of you know) and enjoys a good book, homemade vegan food, and great friends…including the four-legged kind. Sandy Christenson is a long-time yogi, cyclist, traveler, and former high school and college English teacher.

CLASS SERIES

Somatics Education Series

Five Class, Ten Class or Drop-in Series

with Linda Eisenman

Mondays and Fridays:
Nov. 1 – Dec. 3, 2021
11:00 am – 12 noon

Cost: $109 for 10 classes; $59 for 5 classes; $15 for drop-in

This is an On-line, Interactive Series

Somatic movements are not so different from yoga asanas, done lying on a mat. But they are done at a slow enough pace that you gain conscious awareness of how your body moves. Your awareness, and a slow release of movement, allow for easeful and exquisite transformation. This series is designed for anyone who is recovering from an injury, anyone who is beginning a practice, or anyone who wants to deepen their practice.

My body is softening. Long-standing pains in my neck are down to a little muscle ache. Seven months ago I never heard the word Somatic. Now I don’t think I could live without it.
— Mickey F.

Yesterday I went for a +/- 3 mile walk, and I did not have to sit down to rest. This is a first, two years after my surgery.
— Terry P

This is a great addition to my yoga practice — scoliosis is down and comfort is up!
— Barbara M

Linda Eisenman has studied meditation and yoga for over 30 years, and in 2020 and 2021 studied Hanna Somatics through the Novato Institute. She is endlessly fascinated with the movement of the human body. Her goal is to see every yogi from 8 to 80 supple and conscious in their movements.

This series will focus on yoga poses intended to improve balance, strength and flexibility. Each class will also include a brief meditation and breath awareness techniques.

Please dress in comfortable, non-restrictive clothing.

Dayan Qigong dates back to the 4th century and is attributed to a Taoist monks of the Kunlun Mountains. It was passed down in secret. After the cultural revolution Grandmaster Yang Meijun began teaching publicly. With her encouragement Master Hui Liu (Wen Wu School) brought the practice to the United States. Traditional Chinese Medical theory explains and confirms the deep health benefits of this ancient practice.

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.

CLASS SERIES

Restorative Yin Yoga Series

with Ruby Alcartado

Fridays   |  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.
