BREATHWORK Workshop: JULY 10, 2021
Props required: A comfortable seat (pillow, bolster, blanket or chair), pen and paper, water, and Kleenex.
Recommendation: Breathwork is easier on an empty stomach. We recommend having a very light meal at least an hour before the workshop.
Breath is the gateway to self-awareness and good health. Conscious breathing techniques are vital for energy and stress relief, yet most of us leave our breathing in auto-pilot mode, missing a vast subtle richness of life. In yoga, breath is often referred to as Prana (life force) and yogic breathing is referred to as Pranayama – one of the eight limbs of yoga. Mindful breathing is an ancient practice AND it is now supported by modern science.
In this 2 hour workshop we will discuss the modern science of breathwork and actively explore the concepts of creating a daily breath practice. We’ll delve into various ancient Pranayama techniques and their purpose to our happiness and well-being. We’ll also explore modern breathing techniques to facilitate mental focus, better exercise performance and improved sleep.
This workshop and the breathing exercises we’ll perform are suitable for anyone interested in improving their health and expanding their mindfulness.
Whether you’re new to yoga, or a long-time yogi - or even if you have zero interest in "yoga" - you’re still breathing every minute of your life. Join us and explore the benefits from more mindful breathing.
The idea behind "Namaste" -- the recognition of another's true nature -- is the greatest gift we can give or receive. Yet, often in conversation we speak at cross purposes with our intention, neither fully being heard nor fully listening to our companion.
But how does one listen? How can we communicate so that we can be heard? Are there techniques that might help in our intentions?
Attendees will have the opportunity to practice the techniques together, because as we learn from the Yoga Sutras, practice is essential for creating new patterns. Sign up on your own, or consider asking a companion to join you -- your partner, parent, or friend. Come with an open mind, leave with an open heart.
Meaningful mantras are a part of the yoga practice that can enhance your life both on and off the mat. Creating one for yourself that is personally meaningful helps you stay aligned with your Bhavana (vision), remain focused on your mission, and support your daily practice both on and off the mat.
But how does one choose a mantra? What makes a mantra meaningful?
Join Arielle for this 2-hour workshop focused on developing your own personal mantra to support your daily living. You will leave empowered with a meaningful mantra borne from your best intentions, passionate purpose, and personal values.
This 10-week group-based discussion will be a deep dive into the first two books of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
All are welcome, regardless of previous experience.
We humans are heartbreakingly mortal, and living on an organic, ever-changing planet. No wonder we often feel anguish, anger, anxiety, overwhelm, depression, and fear.
Yet, we also have incredible capacity for kindness, love, generosity, and happiness.
The ancient Yogis believed that the key to peace, love, and joy lies in the magnificent human capacity for imagination, storytelling, and thought.
The non-dogmatic philosophy that they developed so long ago has stood the test of time, because the universal human experience is timeless.
Together, we will explore the root causes of suffering, the essence of joy, and -- no small thing -- what the ancient Yogis tell us is the meaning of life.
You will leave with timeless tools and practices from Yoga wisdom to enhance your life with meaning and joy.
What’s more uncomfortable on a daily basis: your hips or your finances?
This 2-hour workshop with Darby will be an informative and discussion-based exploration of how the yoga practice can help us have healthy and mindful relationships with money.
We’ll explore how the yoga practice relates to our financial happiness and we’ll discuss techniques and mindsets to find our financial flow.
As a yogi with a degree in Finance, Darby offers a unique perspective for the world of personal finance and the complications that can arise as we blend the two seemingly distant perspectives.
