Yoga Scholarship: Unlimited Classes for 2019 for 2 Recipients. Applications accepted until 3/13.

The Yoga House is thrilled to offer, thanks to the generosity two anonymous donors, two scholarships for unlimited classes for the duration of 2019 at both of our locations in Kingston. This is a need-based scholarship, and our intention is to offer the practice and benefits of yoga to those who would otherwise be unable to financially pursue and develop a practice in the environment and with the support of a yoga studio community. Applicants can but are not required to have previous yoga experience.  

 

Inspired by our generous donors, we are awarding the scholarships to applications who are an active part of the Kingston community, who have displayed their commitment by donating time and service to others in need right here in Kingston.  

 

Recipient Requirements

  • Recipients must attend at least three classes per week, excluding any emergency circumstances.
  • If a recipient misses two consecutive weeks of practice without extenuating circumstances the scholarship will be withdrawn and given to another applicant.

 

Application Questions

  1. Please provide the details of your community service experience(s) in Kingston.
  2. In a few words, why do you want to develop a yoga practice? What about yoga speaks to you?
  3. What, if any, previous experience have you had with yoga? (This can include information or history you may have researched or heard.)
  4. How do you feel your yoga practice will benefit your life? How, and in what way?

 

Building off of these questions, please include a brief bio about yourself. Your application should be no more than two pages in length and include your email and phone number. Please address your response to Jacquelyn Nash & Felipa Gaudet, and send your application to theyogahouseny@gmail.com with the subject “Scholarship Application.” Once applications have been reviewed, we will ask to meet with the applicant finalists before announcing recipients.

 

Application deadline: March 13, 2019. Applications received after this date will not be accepted

 

We look forward to reviewing your application!

Lori Henry

Lori, an Ulster County native, began practicing yoga over 11 years ago in an effort to control stress and to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In 2015, she visited The Yoga House and decided to embark in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program to improve her own home practice and to become educated in yoga philosophy. After graduating from the program in 2016, she realized that many people feel that yoga is not accessible to them for multiple reasons. She wants to tell them, “YOU CAN do it!” and she wants to help generate confidence so those skeptics can discover how to balance the mind and body in order to accept oneself and others. She believes the best method is through a lighthearted and practical approach. Lori is dedicated to helping her students feel good about themselves and their practice. She is currently continuing her education at Shakti and is enjoying her life-long yoga journey.

Anatomy of Breath with Jessie Montague

Saturday, January 13th, 2:30-5:30pm

$35 prereg/$40 day-of

Hosted at our Midtown Studio

 

15511001192011012242Join Jessie for this informative and creative workshop on exploring why breath is the cornerstone of Yoga. Learn how breath can inform alignment in the asanas, and how working with the breath is the most direct pathway to working with the mind. We will explore the basic anatomy of the respiratory diaphragm and accessory breathing muscles, how breath happens in the system, and why it is so important to include breath awareness into your practice and your teaching.

Jessie MontagueJessie Montague  has been studying and teaching yoga for nearly two decades. She was co-founder and co-director of Satya Yoga Center in Rhinebeck NY From 2005-2013. Her original studies brought her to Neyyar Dam INDIA where she received her first Teacher Certification. Upon returning back to the states she dove in head first with another Teacher Training Program in Woodstock NY and became one of the first core staff members at Bliss Yoga Center (now Woodstock Yoga). Jessie continues her studies in The Yoga Anatomy Advanced Studies Program through the Breathing Project based in NYC, with teachers Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Mathews.

Jessie teaches in the vinyasa tradition from the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya and emphasizes an exploration of the breath within the postures, and how the breath both informs alignment and creates a continuous thread between the postures. Jessie has a non-dogmatic approach to teaching and believes that yoga is an exploration of our entire being: body, breath, mind and spirit. She comes to these practices with joy first and foremost. The intention is to gently navigate our bodies into these beautiful postures which reflect the natural world so that we can better explore our deepest potential and connection to each other and to our planet with grace and lightness of heart.  Jessieleemontague.com
