Yoga: 12 Step Recovery
Yoga for 12-step Recovery (Y12SR) is a framework for integrating the wisdom of yoga with the practical tools of 12-step recovery programs. Y12SR offers a physical, mental and spiritual approach to support recovery from addictive behavior patterns, guided by the premise that "the issues live in the tissues." Y12SR meetings are divided between a group check-in (equivalent to a 12-step meeting) focusing on a particular theme of recovery, followed by a yoga practice integrating the same theme. Y12SR is open to all 12-step program members. It is intended as part of a holistic recovery program including the cognitive work of 12-step programs, not as a replacement.
This is a yogi's daily practice. Includes meditation, yoga, pranayama and basic philosophical studies. Wear clothes to move in.
Stay aware of your deepest personal goals always. This meditation ensures that you cultivate constant awareness of your unique life mission, what really drives you. Keeping this awareness is the greatest protection.
Yoga: Slow Flow
Slow Flow is a hybrid asana class incorporating elements of vinyasa, yin and restorative yoga. Practitioners experience a peaceful decrescendo with class ending in extended relaxation and meditation. This class is gentle enough for most - teachers offer modifications and props to accommodate anybody.
Restorative yoga facilitates relaxation on the cellular level, balancing the nervous system and boosting the immune system, moving one toward deep stillness. Practiced mostly on the floor in seated or supine postures with the support of bolsters, cushions, blankets and other yoga props, this practice is extremely effective for soothing mind, body and soul. This class is gentle enough for every body but typically more challenging mentally.
Yoga: Lady Niguma
Lady Niguma yoga is a subtle body-focused practice including the nadis, chakras, bandhas, and drishti. We begin with chanting, breathwork, sun salutations, and move through an asana sequence to unwind energetic knots. When the knots are hard and tight we feel anxious, depressed and angry. When our central channel is open, we feel emotionally and physically balanced and can access higher planes of realization. This class is accessible for all.
Intro to Meditation
We will cover the basics of meditation; what is meditation, what is the goal of meditation, how to meditate, and a guided meditation.
