Move with the Seasons with Erin Hirbour
Sunday, October 15th, 2-4pm

In this workshop, we will move our bodies through a flow that resembles the four seasons. The blooming of Spring resembles new ideas, new life and new beginnings. Summer is filled with excitement, heat and passion as our energy is amplified and our hearts are motivated. We are comforted by the cooling of the Fall as we are lead toward the end of a chapter. In the winter, we hunker down in reflection until Spring, when we begin again.

We will explore the affect of the seasons on our body and how to self-care through each season with references to Ayurvedic practices and pranayama. This is an all levels class. Bring your mat, water and an open mind.

Yoga Nidra with Emily Masnoon
Sunday, October 22nd, 6:30-7:30pm

Yoga Nidra means “yogic sleep”. This meditative practice systematically guides you through each layer of being, called the koshas, which include the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual layers, making this healing practice inclusive of your whole being.

You don’t need any experience with yoga or meditation. All you need to do is lie down and listen. You will leave feeling calm, clear, and rested.

Yoga Nidra induces the relaxation response, our body’s own healing state where revitalization and regeneration occurs. Our body knows exactly what to do to attain and maintain perfect health and equilibrium, but we need to go into the necessary state to turn on the healing switch. Yoga Nidra brings us effortlessly, compassionately, and rapidly into the healing state.  Research conducted at well recognized universities and medical centers including Stanford University, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Ohio State University, Medical College of Ohio, Banaras University and others, shows that regular practice of Yoga Nidra offers a viable means of prevention and reversal of numerous ailments and diseases, including cardiovascular, stress- related illness, chronic pain, and psychosomatic conditions.

Pratyahara – Blindfolded Yoga Flow with Heather Dowd
Saturday, November 4th, 2-4pm

Join Heather for an afternoon of exploration, adventure and trust.

For many of us, sight is our most relied-upon sense. When we remove the ability to see, our other senses are naturally heightened. Balance is challenged. Confidence and trust can be built.

In yogic philosophy, Pratyahara – translated as removal of the senses- is designed to take us from the outside to the inside, a journey for the yogi to find the Self.

In this workshop we’ll practice blindfolded and tune into each of our other senses before letting all of them go and settling inward. Moving through a slow asana sequence, you’ll have the chance to explore your inner self and focus on the connection between mind and body. You’ll be more tuned in to the present moment, becoming aware of breath and of how you move in space. And because you’ll be blindfolded, you won’t be competing with anyone in class; instead you can focus on yourself with humility and compassion, and without judgement.

Blindfolds will be provided.
