Explore and begin a practice of QiGong – moving your vital force for improved circulation and brightening the mind. Through intentional movement, focused breath, and attention to the different pathways of the body, we release energetic and physiological blockages. Freely moving qi is crucial for our health. We’ll discuss the history of QiGong and principles of Yin and Yang, Five Elements, and living in harmony with the seasons. We will learn foundational movements from The Ling Gui International Healing QiGong School and Master Wang’s Turtle Longevity QiGong. Connect with the vitality within and all around you – QiGong is accessible to all.

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 applicants 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  • If a recipient misses two consecutive weeks of practice without extenuating circumstances the scholarship will be withdrawn and given to another applicant.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.

Weekly Y12SR, Yoga of 12 Step Recovery — Tuesdays Uptown

Y12SR

Yoga of 12 Step Recovery

Every Tuesday

with Sarah Wilkinson

7:00-8:30pm Uptown at 57 Crown St.
Donation based (pay what you can)

Y12SR is an innovative addiction relapse prevention program that integrates the wisdom of yoga and the practical tools of 12-Step recovery programs. Guided by its theme “The Issues Live In the Tissues,” Y12SR is a meeting and a yoga practice. The time together will include a 12-Step-like sharing circle, and a yoga asana (movement), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation session. The yoga asana practice offered is designed to be accessible to all bodies and levels of yoga experience.

Y12SR is open to all persons who suffer with addiction as well as to those who love them. This is an open and inclusive group. EVERYONE is welcome. You do not have to be a member of a 12-step group to attend. It is offered as an adjunct — not a replacement — to regular addiction recovery work. The principles of safety and anonymity are upheld by Y12SR.

Through this series, you will have 4 weekly meetings that are part discussion and part personal coaching to identify that which needs to change and gives you a plan on how to do so, you will receive 4 emails a week from Dee giving you daily action items and reminders, and you have the option of purchasing a special yoga class package to kickstart your weekly yoga routine to complement your positive plan of action.

Through this Reset you will:

  • Learn the power of group intention and accountability with guidance and leadership of a certified health coach.
  • Understand and reduce cravings.
  • Identify trigger foods and situations and how to work with them.
  • Create goals and actively work toward them.
  • Rest your digestive system after a long and challenging holiday season –which will include temporary restriction of certain food s because of their known tendency to cause inflammation and contribute to chronic disease. Food preferences and the freedom to work within your own food beliefs i.e. plant based/paleo etc.… will be respected).
  • Understand how, not only a healthy diet but other lifestyle decisions create a cycle of health.
