Enhancing Gratitude, Strengthening Intention

Join us as we begin our celebration week honoring East Meets West Yoga’s 10th anniversary with a 2 hour FREE mixed level class/workshop with Karen A. Karen is also celebrating her 2nd anniversary as teacher, and wants to share this celebration with you, our beloved community of dedicated yogis and yoginis!

This mixed level practice, focusing on gratitude and the power of intention, will be set to an eclectic backdrop of music as we turn on our internal pilot lights and expand our hearts. Expect some journaling before a heat inducing, dynamic flow of standing postures, along with space to make your Vinyasa sequence a child’s pose or a plank, or an extra push-up chaturanga challenge. We will cool down through a sequence of seated postures before making our way onto our backs and a short yoga nidra.

This practice is about gratitude for who you are, what you can do and how you can just be–let the postures meet you and where you are in the moment.

All are welcome. Please bring something to write with and a journal or notebook.

Open To The Bliss of Yin Yoga with Yael Flusberg

Yin Yoga is a therapeutic practice in which seated and supine poses are held from 3-5 minutes to create a safe and positive biomechanical stress on the deep layers of fascia. This gently enhances the pliancy of our joints within our natural range of motion, and can help liberate the body’s chronic holding patterns. Yin Yoga is also a potent way to cultivate the body’s subtle energy, while challenging you to stay in the experience. Suitable for novice practitioners and weekend warriors alike, you’ll walk out of the workshop feeling like you’ve just enjoyed a deep tissue massage (or needleless acupuncture)! In this two-hour workshop, we’ll review principles of yin yoga, and enjoy a long practice combining poses with deep breathwork, mindfulness and mudras.

What is Energy Medicine Yoga?

EMYoga is a synthesis of yoga and Energy Medicine. The power of this style of yoga is that it greatly increases the benefits of a regular yoga practice without increasing the time devoted to it. Incorporating simple techniques into an existing practice, or doing these simple techniques on their own, helps to balance the nine energy systems of the body. When in balance, these energy systems help to keep you strong, vital, healthy and focused. They work on your immune system, endocrine system and lymphatic systems especially. Additionally we work with focus on breath for releasing pain and stuck energy as well as learning techniques to change your habit fields, helping to foster the ability to implement new, positive habits for overall health and well being. The goal of EMYoga is to balance the body. A strong yoga practice, woven through with the 9 energy systems, speaks to the body in its own language. These techniques are easy to learn and master and they empower your current yoga practice while awakening dormant energies and helping the body to heal and thrive. You’ll learn ancient lost techniques and new powerful tools to boost the power of your practice.
