Ashtanga Yoga:

Self-Discovery Through Practice and Patience

With Jacqui Nash

Friday, February 24th, 7-9pm

$25

The principles of the traditional practice of Ashtanga Yoga can bring a deeper sense of awareness and connection to your practice no matter what style of of yoga you practice. Join E-RYT and The Yoga House co-owner Jacqui Nash to learn about the systems of energies, breath and focus established in the Ashtanga lineage which help create a stronger practice, both physically and spiritually. We’ll dive into the incorporation of these elements to bring you into a fuller awareness of the self while practicing any style of yoga. We’ll also go over some sticking points in the Ashtanga practice in order to feel comfortable with where your body is in the asanas and to find your full potential every time you practice, whether it be Ashtanga or Vinyasa Yoga. All practitioners, new and experienced, welcome.

Yin Yoga Workshop, Saturday, Mar. 11th 2:30-5pm

Exploring the Practice and Principles of Yin Yoga

with Bobbie Marchand

Saturday, Mar. 11th, 2:30-5:00pm

unnamedA quietly passive, though deeply challenging practice, yin yoga is designed to elongate the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendon and fascia) resulting in a greater sense of space within. For a therapeutic effect, poses are sustained for along period of time; practitioners are encouraged into the depth of the pose by the guidance and patient listening to their own breath.

 

This workshop will offer information about a full yin yoga practice; the principles behind Yin and Yang; the desired effect of a yin practice on our begin as a whole; connective tissue and it’s relevance to the practice of yin; how and when to incorporate yin principles into a traditional practice; and pranayama for a yin practice.

 

bobbie marchandBobbie Marchand, in pursuing her love of dance, moved from her native Toronto to NY in 2005. Though the transition of dancer to yoga teacher is a common one, it was an illness that tuned her in to the power of a daily, dedicated practice. Bobbie’s Vinyasa classes are creative, challenging and fun. Drawing on her dance background, the sequencing is expressive and fluid while encouraging alignment (and a healthy use of props!). Her yin/stretch/restorative classes are an invitation to pause, yield to the sense of support, turn inward and take the practice to a quiet, nourishing place away from the external stress of our busy lives. Endless gratitude to teachers Diana Lockett, Amanda Harding and Raghunath for their encouragement, support and loving guidance on this incredible journey.

Monthly Satsang

First Sundays

Next one: Sunday, March 5th, 7pm

 

Amma is with a gathering of her children at a rest stop on tour and smiles sweetly at everyone.

Please join us for an Amma Satsang: An open chanting and meditation group in the tradition of Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi. Through chanting the 108 Names of the Divine Mother in Sanskrit we practice Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion. Chanting also clears the mind for meditation. Whether you come and listen to our musicians or join us in chanting, please come to experience this ancient practice. Satsang means, “in the company of truth.” As we clear our minds and open our hearts, we can dwell in our essence.

The Great Beyond: Past Life Regression

A Workshop with Laurie Oliver

Saturday, February 4th, 2-4pm

$20 to preregister

or $25 day of

Past Life Regression is a doorway into the many journeys and incarnations our souls have taken. Many people have epiphanies about various patterns that become apparent through the experience of having a regression. Often times we return with those souls we have strong connections to. Sometimes it provides us an opportunity to get it right this time around. It helps to clarify our purpose for each lifetime and lessons learned.
Laurie Oliver is a psychic-medium, as well as a hypnotist specializing in Past Life Regressions. She uses her intuition as well as guidance from “The Other Side,” in a gentle, caring way to answer questions and offer support and healing from whatever life challenges present. Laurie also happens to be our genuinely beloved landlord here at The Yoga House.
