Dana Falsetti Yoga Workshop
Strength Within - Saturday, February 25, 2017. 12pm - 2:30pm. In this workshop, Dana will share her journey to strength, both external and internal. She will break down advanced postures into their fundamental shapes so you can work on building strength from the ground up. This slow journey to strength is path home to yourself. Appropriate for all levels, there will be options for beginner through advanced practitioners. The key is to come with an open mind - prepared to accept a challenge so you can humble yourself - and leaving wanting to explore endless possibilities. This workshop is perfect for those who want to learn basics of strong shapes, seasoned practitioners looking for new insight and perspective, and those who have wondered "how do I start?" All bodies welcome!
Heart is Home
Sunday, February 26, 2017. 2-4:30pm. In this workshop, Dana will share her journey to body acceptance and how she finally found a home within herself. She will lead your through heart opening postures, also known as backbends. Not only will you work our spine mobility, you will spend time opening up the hips, and opening up the heart - two areas of the body that can hoard so much emotional heaviness. Through this yoga practice you will learn to release, to accept, and to love no matter what. This workshop is suitable for all levels from beginner to seasoned practitioners. All bodies welcome!
A Letter From Dana on www.nolatreesyoga.com
I came to my yoga practice after years of binge eating
years of struggling with confidence, years of gaining and losing weight in bouts of depression and anxiety, and crazed attempts to find a little peace.
I hit a point in my life sometime early on in college where I was both my heaviest and my unhappiness at about 300 pounds.
I thought the two went hand in hand, so I started hitting the gym in hopes to make a permanent change. Significant weight loss and loads of empty compliments later, I realized that absolutely nothing had changed. My physical body changed, but my body changes every single day and always will. I was still me, I brought myself and all of my habits and tendencies and fears with me to my "new" body.
So I came to yoga as a last resort.
I was unknowingly searching for something, and I think ultimately that thing was peace. Peace and freedom that eventually came from a place of self worth. I remember my first class well. I walked in having the largest body in the room on top of being the beginner, and yoga was hard. I couldn't hold down dog for 5 breaths, my shoulders were on fire, and all the while it seemed everybody else was popping up into optional headstands like it was no big deal. I remember thinking that would never and could never be me. I thought my body would limit my practice, but eventually I learned that only my mind sets limits.
Many people think they need to be thin, flexible, or strong to practice yoga.
Please, hear me when I say that yoga is for everybody. Bodies change and evolve every single day, and the physical practice is simply a manifestation of the internal change. Yoga is a spiritual practice, one that allows you to be and see yourself. It's a practice of non-attachment. Your physical body isn't a deciding factor in whether or not yoga is for you. Your body changes. There's nothing to be attached to that won't leave you hurting or feeling empty down the road. Come to yoga to find out how you feel, not judge how you look. We do enough of that anyway. Give yourself a chance, give yourself the gift of knowing your worth and it will change your life.
Beginner class is for true beginners, maybe those that need a refresher, and even if you do not know what yoga is~this is the class for you. It teaches you the basics in asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing), and meditation.
Beginner / Intermediate
This class is designed for those that can't quite make it to the 5:30pm Beginner class, nor the 5:30pm Intermediate/Advanced class. It is a mixture of Beginner and Intermediate levels, and options are given to take postures to the next level, but it is encouraged for the students to practice at the level they feel most comfortable being at that time. Variations and modifications will be given.
