Yoga for Stress Reduction
Jun

1:00 PM13:00

Yoga for Stress Reduction

This is a 75 minute yoga class, focusing on breathing techniques and yoga postures that stimulate and deactivate the nervous system in a way that increase self-regulation and thereby decreasing stress in the body and mind. This class is taught through the framework of trauma informed yoga; which means that we will focus on creating a safe space for each individual to explore a mind/body connection. This class will incorporate a little more movement and heat building than our previous trauma informed classes BUT is still very beginner friendly. Throughout the practice we will stimulate our systems through a slight increase in intensity, then focus on the deactivation in a very mindful way. The idea behind this is to increase each individual's ability to go from a more heightened state to one of more calm.

No previous yoga experience required.

This class will be lead by Veronica Tovar, LCSW & RYT 200, owner of Breathing Through Counseling & Wellness Services. As both a licensed clinical social worker and a registered yoga instructor Veronica has extensive experience working with trauma. Please feel free to contact her with any questions or concerns regarding the class or related topics.

Yoga Nidra or 'yogic sleep' is a guided meditation designed to bring a deep sense of relaxation. We’ll begin class with one or two Restorative yoga postures and then settle into a comfortable laying down position, where you'll be led on a journey of consciousness.

You will settle into the beautiful space between sleep and awake - where your deepest and truest self resides and all things are possible.

*Wear comfortable yoga clothing

*No meditation or yoga experience needed.

*The majority of class will be spent in a laying down position. Bring any extra blankets, pillows, or bolsters needed to make yourself comfortable (we will have some available at the studio for you as well)

*Your body temperature will drop as you relax. You may want to bring warm layers, blankets, and socks!

emPOWERment Flow: Charity Class

April is sexual assault awareness month. Sadly, statistics show that every 92 seconds another person experiences sexual assault. How can we help? Bring awareness to the issue, providing support to survivors, and supporting agencies that provide resources to sexual assault survivors. All of these options help to empower sexual assault survivors.

In honor of sexual assault awareness month, we are hosting an emPOWERment flow class. It is a 75-minute power vinyasa class taught by Veronica Tovar. The class will focus on strength building postures and creating heat in the body. But more importantly this class is intended to bring our community together to show support for survivors of sexual assault. Our hope is that this class will enable each participant to recognize how powerful, both mentally and physically, they truly are.

You can sign up/donate online by clicking “get ticket” or donate at the door

Suggested donation: $15 or desired amount towards charity- all proceeds from this event will be donated RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network)

Elevate Talk: Living With Purpose & Understanding the Subtle Body with Lama Brandy Davis

Elevate Talk: Living With Purpose & Understanding the Subtle Body with Lama Brandy Davis

Join our guest speaker, Lama Brandy Davis for a 2 hour Talk

For so many of us, yoga has come into our lives as a blessing. It not only cures our various physical ailments and stymies the effects of time and gravity, but perhaps most miraculously, yoga has the power to set us free. In this two-hour workshop we will look at the anatomy of the subtle body: the system of channels and chakras, and the coursing of the inner winds and the thoughts which ride upon them. For at its core Hatha Yoga is a practice of transformation, rooted in the interpenetration of our physical, pranic, mental and ultimate bodies. Armed with the knowledge of how yoga works, we can empower our practice to effect transformation at the root of our deepest held patterns and instincts.

We will not need our mats for practice, but please come comfortable and ready to stay seated. We do have some props available for you to sit on, but if you have your own you'd like to use or will need a chair, please feel free to bring it.

Brandy Davis is a meditation and yoga teacher. She has been studying and practicing for over two decades. Her current passion is restorative justice and working with incarcerated populations. She has a particular knack for personalizing deep philosophical concepts and making them applicable to our modern lives. She teaches with love and humor. Brandy’s greatest joy comes from witnessing the opening of the human heart.

Emotional Healing Through Movement: Trauma Informed Yoga Class

11:00 AM11:00

Emotional Healing Through Movement: Trauma Informed Yoga Class

This is a 75 minute yoga class taught through the framework of trauma informed yoga. This practice is designed to create a safe environment while encouraging exploration of the mind-body connection. So what does this mean? How is it different than a “regular” yoga class? It means that practice space is designed in a way in which each person has ample space to call their own, with no one directly behind them. Participants are given options to take space during the practice and can rejoin without question. Feel more comfortable with your eyes open at all times or your head up in child’s pose? No problem. This style of yoga encourages each participant to take any variation that makes them feel more comfortable. There are no commands in trauma informed yoga, only invitations to explore shapes and postures to further a connection between the mind and the body. This practice focuses on a mind/body connection rather than the precision of each posture. This class is designed to stimulate and deactivate the nervous system in a manner that enhances self-regulation. This practice is designed to assist with various emotional experiences including depression, anxiety, and trauma.

No previous yoga experience required.

This class will be lead by Veronica Tovar, LCSW & RYT 200, owner of Breathing Through Counseling & Wellness Services. As both a licensed clinical social worker and a registered yoga instructor Veronica has extensive experience working with trauma. Please feel free to contact her with any questions or concerns regarding the class or related topics.

Pop Up Rocket Yoga Class

What is Rocket? The rocket routines are revisions of the Traditional Ashtanga series that remove the hierarchy of postures and gives the student inspiration into their own creative process, their body's limitations and strengths, while still honoring the core values and teachings of this ancient practice.

What does that all mean? The Rocket resequences Traditional Ashtanga Series into variations more accessible for western audiences while fostering a playful, upbeat and dynamic atmosphere where we play music and emphasize handstands, floats, arm-balances, and change the sequence from time to time. Each pose and transition can be modified, refined and strengthened - the sequences are accessible to all.

About Bobby Harding: Bobby loves yoga. In particular, Bobby loves the traditional and progressive varieties of Ashtanga Vinyasa. Bobby Loves the way the continued pursuit of the practice and its challenges facilitates the refinement, strengthening and opening of the individual as we each are invited to confront ourselves on our mats. He loves to share the practices and to make sure all who are drawn to them are able to find enjoyment.

No need to sign up in advance - show up ready to have some fun! All levels welcomed to join, learn, and have a great time.

Thai Yoga Massage Couples Workshop

We are delighted to offer you this hands-on learning experience introducing you to the basics of Thai Yoga Massage!

This massage style is a modality from Thailand and uses techniques that anyone can learn. It is often described as “lazy man’s yoga”. It’s like having yoga done to you and it feels amazing! This full body treatment opens energy pathways throughout your entire body using massage work, acupressure points, and gentle stretches. In this workshop, you will learn the importance of touch and communication with the body, all while unwinding and reconnecting.

Thai yoga massage is practiced with clothes on as opposed to other styles of massage. This can be a wonderful gift to offer to a friend, a family member, or a partner. The workshop will be structured so that each partner will have a turn giving and receiving this nurturing practice. 

*No massage experience necessary

*Wear yoga clothes or any comfy clothing

*Space is limited to 20 people (10 couples)

$50 per couple

3 Pop Up Yoga Nidra Classes
Feb

to Feb 28

3 Pop Up Yoga Nidra Classes

There are 3 separate Pop Up Yoga Nidra Classes in February with Amy Cornwell

  • Thur Feb 14th 7-8pm

  • Thur Feb 21st 7-8pm

  • Thur Feb 28th 7-8pm

Yoga Nidra or 'yogic sleep' is a guided meditation designed to bring a deep sense of relaxation. We’ll begin class with one or two Restorative yoga postures and then settle into a comfortable laying down position, where you'll be led on a journey of consciousness. As you rotate your awareness throughout your body and mind, complete physical and mental relaxation is attained. You will settle into the beautiful space between sleep and awake - where your deepest and truest self resides and all things are possible.

*Wear comfortable yoga clothing

*No meditation or yoga experience needed.

*The majority of class will be spent in a laying down position. Bring any extra blankets, pillows, or bolsters needed to make yourself comfortable (we will have some available at the studio for you as well)

*Your body temperature will drop as you relax. You may want to bring warm layers, blankets, and socks!

No need to sign up in advance - just pop in! Best way to wind down after the holidays!

Pop Up Yin Yoga
Jan
18
5:30 PM17:30

Pop Up Yin Yoga

Yin is a slower, more gentle style of yoga that works on opening the body and mind. Poses are done on the ground in seated or reclined positions and focused on longer deeper holds. Unlike other practices that focus on strengthening, heat building, and activation of the muscles, yin’s objective is to deactivate and to allow ourselves to release deeper into the connective tissues throughout the body. Poses are focused on passive release with the use of props for support and are typically held for 3-5 minutes each. After a few minutes of holding these poses, the body begins to find more release while helping to open and strengthen the joints. For those that have a hard time being still, this is a great mental practice. It may seem slow and gentle, but yin still offers a challenge of seeking our physical, mental, and emotional edges. There is great strength in surrender.

Emotional Healing through Movement - Trauma Informed Yoga Class
Jan
12
11:00 AM11:00

Emotional Healing through Movement - Trauma Informed Yoga Class

This is a 75 minute yoga class taught through the framework of trauma informed yoga. This practice is designed to create a safe environment while encouraging exploration of the mind-body connection. So what does this mean? How is it different than a “regular” yoga class? It means that practice space is designed in a way in which each person has ample space to call their own, with no one directly behind them. Participants are given options to take space during the practice and can rejoin without question. Feel more comfortable with your eyes open at all times or your head up in child’s pose? No problem. This style of yoga encourages each participant to take any variation that makes them feel more comfortable. There are no commands in trauma informed yoga, only invitations to explore shapes and postures to further a connection between the mind and the body. This practice focuses on a mind/body connection rather than the precision of each posture. This class is designed to stimulate and deactivate the nervous system in a manner that enhances self-regulation. This practice is designed to assist with various emotional experiences including depression, anxiety, and trauma.

No previous yoga experience required.

This class will be lead by Veronica Tovar, LCSW & RYT 200, owner of Breathing Through Counseling & Wellness Services. As both a licensed clinical social worker and a registered yoga instructor Veronica has extensive experience working with trauma. Please feel free to contact her with any questions or concerns regarding the class or related topics.

space is limited to 14 people

Suggested Donation: $15, Members $10

January Yoga Challenge
Jan
1
to Jan 31

January Yoga Challenge

It’s that time of year to refocus goals, intentions and to build more consistency and discipline in the things that make us feel good. Last year we hosted a 31 day yoga challenge for the entire month of January. This year we’re doing it again but want the focus to be more about consistency in your practice…even if it’s not every single day. How many days a week would you like to be practicing? What are your yoga goals? We want to help you on this journey towards building your practice and working towards a healthier body, mind & soul! You don’t need any yoga experience to start - you don’t need to be flexible OR strong. Most of our classes are beginner friendly so start where you are and let the magic happen!

So here’s how it works…if you’re wanting to be a part of this challenge, all you have to do is SHOW UP starting January 1st and come in and practice as many times as you can/want to for the entire month. Each time you come in, sign your name in and we will keep track of who’s coming each day based on the sign in sheets. See how many days you can get in within the month and let it set the tone for the rest of the year! If you DO decide to come in and practice for all 31 days of January, you will win a brand new Manduka Eko mat! Take pressure off yourself - this is not about winning, failing or burning yourself out. This challenge is about doing what you can and if you miss a day, enjoy it and let it motivate you to keep moving forward - have fun!

We don’t always need to wait until a new year to reach our goals but why not use it as an opportunity to reset and build positive momentum moving forward?! This challenge is free to join - the only expense is the cost of the classes you attend. We offer class packages, 1 month unlimited or memberships (autopay). If you are needing to purchase any of these, you can always donate towards those HERE . Scroll down, click donate and you’re done!

Our class schedule can be found HERE - Be sure to check it week to week for any pop up classes or schedule changes! (meditation classes and workshops DO count towards your practice as well).

We hope you start 2019 off with us on the right foot…and then the left, of course. (and we are obviously a hilarious bunch)
