EVENTS and WORKSHOPS

TRISTHANA

November 08, 2019

TRISTHANA:

Starting Small

90 minutes of deep focus on the breathing, bandhas and dristhi 

 

7:30 - 9pm Friday

November 8, 2019

 

This offering, Starting Small, begins with your relationship to the ground and moves out into your body through focus on both ends of your spine. Using breathing techniques to calm the nervous system, we will simulate the power of sustained lengthened breathing and experience the inner calm it provides, as a backdrop and foundation to focused concentration. 

 

By working from the inside, from a lying down position, we will begin to cultivate the dristhi, or moving focal point. Visualization is a key part of the practice. Seeing truly is believing! Deep looking, as well as listening, become deep knowing in the body. Paying close attention to the sensations of the body, we tune to the efficient solutions effortlessly uncovered by focused repetition. Open to trying, not only in the active sense, but trying as learning to allow.

 

Come at a new time! Wind down and build sustained support to bolster you during the busy holiday season. Find how deeply you can disengage your muscles, how slowly and efficiently you can use them. Make your way through the dark days of winter with a practice that can both relax and energize you.

 

For more than twenty years, Meg Belichick has been both chasing and following her daily yoga practice through her life’s challenges: depression, divorce, disability, pregnancy, childbirth, parenting and the holidays. She is grateful that it keeps changing!

CLASSES

MYSORE STYLE ASHTANGA

Mysore style Ashtanga is an individualized practice. As each student is in a different stage of their practice, they do not practice in unison with each other. A beginning student might have a 20-30 minute practice, that will grow with their commitment. A minimum practice of three times per week, working toward daily practice, is recommended for Ashtanga class attendance. The goal of Mysore practice is for each student to develop an individual practice that can be done at home. 

 

In the Ashtanga Led Primary Series students are guided in unison through a dynamic and flowing sequence of postures that is directed towards strengthening, toning and cleansing the muscles, joints and internal organs. These classes are beneficial for every student of yoga!

TANTRA YOGA

Join us in this powerful combination of asana, pranayama, mantra, mudra, meditation, bandha (energy lock), and chakra (energy center) work to build strength, clarity, and ease. Expect to be challenged as this practice will take a whole body and mind approach to effect the way you move through the world.

WISE WOMAN YOGA

This class will focus on yoga practices for bone building, the pelvic floor, stiff joints, insomnia and hot flashes. I have collected or created practices to bring strength and flexibility to the spine; to balance the endocrine system; to soothe and cool the nervous system and to focus the mind. Each class will include relaxation to promote a good night’s sleep.

Classes will follow the cycle of the moon…

New Moon… Pelvic floor and Restorative practice
Half Moon… Bone building or Cooling practice for hot flashes... requests welcome
Full Moon… Chandra Namaskara with Mantra and Lunar Pranayama
Half Moon… Bone building or Cooling practice for hot flashes … requests welcome

YOGA PREP

Yoga Fundamentals

This class is designed to explore the many facets of basic yoga poses, breathing and relaxation techniques. More explanation and direction is offered to deepen your experience of yoga in a calm, relaxed and safe atmosphere.

 

For those who have never done yoga before and those who want to renew their practice. Focus is on building a solid foundation of poses and breath work and gaining self-confidence.

 

Yoga Fundamentals  provides the newer yoga student and, even the  seasoned practitioner looking to refresh, detailed instruction on the proper alignment of base yoga postures to safely build the strength and knowledge to move forward in yoga.  In addition to the class focusing on alignment and preparing you for other major asanas included in vinyasa flow class, yoga etiquette and basic yoga breathing technique will be covered. 

RESTORATIVE

This class utilizes props (blankets, bolsters, straps, blocks) to fully support the body in restful poses, allowing students to stay in postures longer. Practicing primarily seated and reclined asanas, this is a deeply relaxing class, appropriate for all levels, including those recovering from injuries or with limited range of movement.
 

GENTLE YOGA

Mostly seated and reclined poses are combined with stretching, breathwork and relaxation. This is a calming and nurturing class that is appropriate for all levels of ability.

RISE AND SHINE VINYASA FLOW

Experience a compassionate approach to flowing with the breath through sun salutations, standing, seated, supine, and inverted postures. With the room temperature set to 85 degrees, your body will be comfortably warm and able to move more deeply into postures. Dynamic sequencing combines breath and fluid movement to build strength, flexibility, endurance, and concentration. Building gradually allows both newer and more advanced students the opportunity to go deeper or relax, honoring the body as needed. Discover freedom and playfulness on the mat and in the full practice of life off of your yoga mat.

INTEGRATED YIN YOGA

A meditative floor practice where poses are held longer and deeper to strengthen connective tissues (tendons, fascia, and ligaments) with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.  Much of the focus is between the belly button and the knees - particularly the hips, pelvis and lower spine.

COMMUNITY CLASS

Our community class offers a safe, comfortable space to build our yoga practice together. Through sun salutes, flow and breath we will discover the magic of yoga and how it contributes to a healthy joyful life.

De-stress, Reset & Restore

Slow down your entire system and get a much needed Restorative Reset as you near the end of your week. We’ll start with calming breathwork and mindfulness meditation, followed by gentle yoga stretches, and then close with a deep rest in long-held restorative poses. Restorative Yoga utilizes props (blankets, bolsters, blocks, etc.) to fully support your muscles so you can rest in a state of total relaxation. Slow Deep Breathing, Meditation and Restorative Yoga all work similarly by activating your parasympathetic nervous system, which acts as a brake to slow down the effects of stress hormones on your system and help you achieve a state of equilibrium. Join Lisa and Setareh for this soothing & balancing Restorative Reset!
