New Monthly! CONTINUUM: Moving Inquiry with Megan Bathory-Peeler
Sunday, January 21, 12:30-4:30pm ~ Unfolding as moving mindfulness, Continuum consistently brings one into the present moment through simple awareness of breath and wave motion. By being present to what is in the moment, one can make more informed choices for action that are more symbiotic, less effortful, and also maintain a focus on connection rather than on fear or isolation. This can bring about a significant shift in one's life, allowing a fuller sense of one's body, along with a greater trust in it

YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING: Foundations Module** with Josh Summers
January 27-30: Sat, 12-7pm, Sun-Tues, 9-5:30
Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles that are predominant today. In Yin Yoga, floor postures are held passively for several minutes in order to access a safe and positive ‘stress’ on the deep layers of connective tissue in the body. Physically, Yin Yoga restores and maintains the natural mobility of the joints, primarily between the navel and the knees. Energetically, Yin Yoga opens the body’s meridian system, which enhances the body’s energetic flow and supports emotional equilibrium. And as this practice emphasizes stillness and silence, Yin Yoga prepares both the body and the mind for deeper experiences in meditation. The 50 Hour Yin Yoga Foundations Module is a comprehensive training developed for serious students and teachers interested in learning the core physical aspects of Yin Yoga, with experiential & online components
$790 ~ preregistration required. Students will receive a certificate of training which is eligible for Continuing Education Credit (50hrs) with the Yoga Alliance. This Foundations Module is a core module of the Advanced Yin Yoga Studies 300-hour program through Summers School of Yin Yoga, and can be applied towards a 300 hour certification within this school
