Free New Year’s Day class, Jan. 1, 2:00-3:30pm

Free New Year’s Day Class

new years yoga, the yoga house, free yoga, yoga class

Join Jacqui Nash for this annual event, a class to ring in the new year. This year, we’re dedicating 2015 to Maitri Bhavana, or cultivating compassion and friendliness, in an effort to view all creatures and all people with openness and unlimited compassion (not always an easy task!).

Space is limited, so arrive a little early to roll out your mat.

“matiri karuna muditopeksanam sukha dukha punyapunya visayanam bhavanatas citta prasadanam.”

By cultivating attitudes of friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and disregard toward the wicked, the mind-stuff retains its undisturbed calmness

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 1.33

 

 

Yoga Fundamentals: A Workshop for Beginners–Sat., 1/17, 2:00-4:00pm

Yoga Fundamentals:

A Workshop for Beginners

Saturday, January 17th, 2:00-4:00pm

$30 day-of/$25 by Jan. 14th

YOGA House in Kingston, NYWe’ve all heard of the widely known physical and mental benefits of a consistent yoga practice. We know that when we hear the word “yoga” we think of flexibility, stress relief and mindfulness. But for some, making that step to experience those well-known benefits is not as easy as walking out the door and getting to a class. Often people feel intimidated and unsure of joining a group class for their first experience. Many questions arise: What type of yoga should I try? What’s with all the breathing? If I’m not flexible, can I do yoga? Maybe you’ve already been to a class but felt too uncomfortable and unsure of yourself to return.

This 2-hour interactive workshop is designed to quell those hesitations and answer any and all questions that you might have about starting a yoga practice. We will cover the following topics:

  • A brief history of yoga
  • An introduction to pranayama (breath control) and meditation
  • An explanation of different styles
  • An introduction to common yoga terms
  • A look at some yoga postures and their anatomical alignment

The entire workshop is designed to encourage dialogue, questions and discussion for any and all topics. If you have a question, we are sure that many other people do, so ask away for us all, teachers and students, to learn about the hesitations that arise. We want to provide you with the foundation of basic yoga principles in order for you to feel comfortable when you enter a yoga class for the first time. Join The Yoga House co-founder and  instructor, Jacqui Nash, for this open forum for any yoga-skeptics.

We have all necessary equipment (props, mats, straps, even water), so bring just yourself. Because we will be doing some postures, please wear comfortable, loose clothing.

A workshop with Adi Carter

Saturday, October 25th
12:00-2:00pm   $25

 

 

Acro Yoga The Yoga House Kingston NYThe Workshop
AcroYoga blends the spiritual wisdom of Yoga, the loving kindness of Thai massage, and the dynamic power of Acrobatics. These three ancient lineages form the foundation of a unique new practice that cultivates trust, connection and playfulness.  This workshop will focus on using core awareness to help practitioners balance on each other and take flight to truly experience the joy of being inverted and supported without the effort and struggle of trying to hold yourself up.

 

Open to everyone, there will be an emphasis on therapeutic flying to stretch the shoulders, release tight hips and open up the back in backbends.  Feel free to come with a partner but it is also fun to come by yourself as you will get to work with a bunch of new people who usually become your friends soon there after.

 

PR_headshot2Adi Carter Bio
Adi has been a life long student of practicing yoga off the mat in all shapes and forms especially when it involves being outdoors. Her passion for movement and the environment have taken her on adventures around the world to share the modalities of shifting perspective through yoga, slacklining, AcroYoga, climbing, surfing, mountain biking and just about anything else you can think to do on the Earth’s terrain. Traveling & teaching often times with her car as a home base, you can find her somewhere in the vicinity of an ocean, climb site, mountain or legit climbing tree as she works with students on and off the mat to discover a new sense of balance, strength and focus in whatever their form of practice might be. www.adicarter.com
