NEW DECADE, NEW YOU: A New Years Weekend Immersion With AMY IPPOLITI

amy+I+3-2.jpg

Join us for our annual weekend gathering with world-renouned yoga leader, Amy Ippoliti. Deepen your practice and advance your understanding of body and mind through yogic principal and philosophy. It is the perfect opportunity to start this new year in love, connection and community!

EARLY BIRD PRICING: $55 per class or $175 for full event (early bird expires 11/30/2019). Regularly $65 per session or $215 for full weekend, 10% off for members.

Gift bag for first 25 people to register for the full weekend. Yoga Alliance CE hours for full weekend apply for teachers.

Non-refundable.

Friday, January 24th, 6:00 - 8:00pm: Dream Big In Two Directions - Make Space in Your Hips
You have to look back from where you came in order to envision who you could become in this next decade. Gather with friends, old and new, to explore the idea that through your yoga practice, you can become someone you’ve not yet even imagined. Bathe in the breath, in hip opening asanas, and sequences designed with your longevity and creativity in mind.

Saturday, January 25th, 10:00am - 12:00pm: The Courage to Live an Examined Life - Open Your Heart
We are born into a world - however well-meaning - that tells us who we are supposed to be. We can go a whole lifetime living in fear of meeting these expectations. With yoga we find ourselves in a community practically begging us to be who we want to be but in some ways it’s so much easier to just do what the world tells us. This morning, through a series of gradual chest openers, backbends, and standing poses, find the courage to live in your own skin and to lead from your heart.

Saturday, January 25th 2:00 - 4:00pm: Listen! The Artistry of Yoga - Low Back and Hamstring Release
It’s noisy out there right now, and it can be tough to hear the roar of the voice that is telling you what you long to create, and who you are craving to become. Everyday stress and anxiety will keep you coasting in the familiar. Pause - and answer the call of your wildest imagination and turn this voice into artistry. That’s yoga. Expect hamstrings to finally open, lower backs to unlock, and prana to flow freely.

Sunday, January 26th 10:00am - 12:00pm: Dream a Better World - Inversions
When you look outside there are things you want for the world - and things you wish were different. Hold the freshness of this moment - the new beginning of the decade - and forge a life of meaning for you and those around you. The best part, you won’t be alone - you’ll have the community by your side. Expect to stand tall on your feet, fly free on your hands, go upside down, and then deeply restore.

I started practicing yoga twenty years ago in Los Angeles. I was stuck in a job I couldn’t stand, in a toxic environment, feeling as if my soul was being crushed daily. I came to yoga as a way to escape this daily torture, and with each yoga class the turmoil of life outside of my practice seemed less and less important. Ultimately, I asked myself why I was escaping through yoga and not escaping to yoga.

Two decades later I have the privilege of being a full-time yoga instructor and teacher trainer. I have studied with some of the most incredible teachers working today - Maty Ezraty (founder of YogaWorks), Lisa Walford, Seane Corn, and Carrie Owerko. I have taught yoga to thousands of students and conducted trainings all over world. Most importantly I am able to do what I love everyday.

True Flexibility - Heated Yin Yoga for Release, Restoration & Resiliency

yin yoga petra.jpg

Do you want to increase your flexibility while quieting your mind? Did you know that holding a pose for 90 seconds or longer can drastically change the way your body responds to the stretch? Join us for an evening that will leave your heart glowing, your body vibrant and your mind still. Yin yoga, practiced in a heated room, allows us to deeply access and increase our flexibility while calming the parasympathetic nervous system.

IN THIS WORKSHOP YOU WILL:

  • warm up the body to prepare for deeper opening with an invigorating flow (~15 minutes)

  • then slow it down with supported yin poses to improve your flexibility and gain a larger range of motion

  • promote self-regulated healing by activating the parasympathetic nervous system

  • alleviate tension and stress, and release energetic toxins

Workshop held in a gently heated room.  All levels class, minimal yoga experience necessary.

Root Strength: Yoga For Pelvic Awareness

root strenght .png

Do you want to strengthen and empower yourself through correct alignment and physcial engagement?  Develop awareness of your pelvic floor and learn to consciously control these muscles, why they matter and what function they serve.  The pelvic floor muscles are crucial for optimum, functioning in the body.  The pelvic floor consists of ligaments, muscles and nerves that act like a hammock to support your internal organs.  Proper work to strengthen, stabilize, stretch and soften the pelvic floor helps create correct foundations for each movement of the body.  A strong and flexible pelvic floor helps keep pelvic and abdominal organs healthy as we age.


IN THIS WORKSHOP YOU WILL LEARN:
•Apana-vayu pranayma to elongate the flow of Prana

•How to find the pelvic floor

•How to relax and release pelvic floor (20-25% of women have a chronic tightening of pelvic floor muscles!)

•Understand the connection between the pelvic floor and
root chakra

While pelvic floor health is integral for all, this workshop will be primarily focused on the benefits for female bodies.  Suitable for all levels.

When: Friday May 10, 6:00 - 8:00pm

Fee: $25/preregistration; $30 day of workshop; members 10% off
