Ground Down, A Rooting Yoga Immersion

Saturday, November 16th, 11am - 2pm

Ride The Wave Yoga, Newburyport MA

The seasonal transition from autumn to winter is cold and dry, the time to pull on an extra layer and hunker down by the fire. Transitions brought on by the winds of change and complicated holiday times can bring about anxiety. Root and center yourself this season with grounding practices from yoga and ayurveda. This immersion is designed to feel like a cozy hug, or your favorite sweater. 

You’ll start with a nourishing and hearty welcome drink, followed by an all-levels yoga practice to ground down into your innate stability and centeredness. Afterwards, a lecture will shed light on specific yogic and ayurvedic concepts that will help you intellectually understand and navigate the seasonal changes, their effect on you, and skills that you can use to work with the elements to feel your best. Pranayama, or breathwork, specifically geared towards the theme of the day, will tie things up with a bow before you go on your way.

Includes: Pre-practice drink, yoga practice, lecture, pranayama practice.

Cost: $65

Envisioning the New Year: 2020

Yoga, meditation, and envisioning become even more powerful and pertinent tools for manifestation as the new year approaches.

New Year’s Eve, December 31st, 2pm - 4pm

Coolidge Yoga South End

This workshop will include an inspiring yoga practice designed to connect us to what's at our core. We will follow this up by creating our own vision boards to distill what matters most so that we may generate and grow the life we most deeply desire. Meditation will seal everything in and strengthen our intentions.

A vision board is a collection of photographs, clippings, and other images that serve to focus our intentions and request universal influence in living the life most in line with what we want. Corkboards, pins, magazines, and scissors will be provided. If there are any personally meaningful images or items that you would like to add to your board, feel free to bring them.

Cost: $35 (All materials are included)

The Power of Pranayama

Posture and breathwork to concentrate your energy and live your best life

March 7th, Time TBD

Emerge Yoga and Wellness, Massapequa, Long Island NY

A classical part of the yoga tradition, pranayama is the opportunity to become more intimate with our own life force energy. The breath is inextricably linked to the central nervous system, and even just once cycle of breath can signal either uneasiness or calm to the body and brain and send a surge of hormones to change our biochemistry. Beyond the massive effects the breath has on our entire being, pranayama can be practiced to prepare for concentration and meditation, which has been found to be capable of rewiring the brain over time. Over the course of the workshop, which will be mostly comprised of practice and experiential lecture, you’ll prepare the body for deep breathing with a space-making yoga sequence, learn how to optimize your breath in the midst of posture, and finally practice a series of quintessential pranayama techniques to prepare for a deep and meaningful meditation and savasana. The goal is for you to walk back into your life with the reverberative effects of building the skills of yoga, and to have refilled inner resources for approaching life more from the truth of who you are.
