Yoga Therapy for Digestive Wellness

Renee headshot.jpg

with Renee Zambo

Are you interested in learning about self-care tools for your digestive health?

            Our tummies are one of the most sensitive areas of our bodies. They are at the center of our being, literally our “core”, and lined with hundreds of millions of nerve endings, affecting everything from our immune system to mood. Many factors influence the health of our digestive system, from our external environment, to our internal stress.

            Renee Zambo, registered yoga therapist, will lead participants through yoga therapy techniques for healing the digestive system. This will include a series of breathing techniques to stimulate the relaxation response, postures to gently massage and soothe the muscles of the gastrointestinal system, and a mindful eating or drinking exercise to further explore our relationship to food and digestion.

In this workshop you will:

●      Learn how stress and other environmental factors shape the health of your gastrointestinal system.

●      Lean specific breathing techniques to help reduce stress and feel more grounded in your body.

●      Practice yoga postures that soothe and detox the gastrointestinal system.

●      Practice a mindful eating exercise (on gluten, dairy, and sugar free food items) or mindful drinking with herbal tea, to explore our relationship to food and cultivate fulfillment.

Sankalpa: The Power of Intention

With Stéphanie Bour

Explore the yogic perspective on new year's resolution: sankalpa. This powerful practice for realizing your most heartfelt desires, doesn’t ask you to change who you are but assumes that you already are who you need to be to fulfill your dharma, your purpose in life.

All you need to do is focus your mind and take time to listen to your inner wisdom. By allowing us to see clearly what we really seek, sankalpa empowers the mind to move from intention to realization.

This workshop will guide you through this process as we:

  • Learn the meaning of sankalpa in the tantric tradition.
  • Practice postures, breathwork and meditation designed to support self-inquiry.
  • Experience a guided process of journaling to reveal our heartfelt desires.
  • Create a strong and lasting resolution connected to our own truth and purpose.
  • Practice Yoga Nidra to cultivate a deep relaxed state and plant the seeds of sankalpa in our receptive and prepared subconscious mind.

The most effective sankalpa is made when you are not intellectually active but when your mind is calm and quiet. Yoga Nidra is one of the most powerful technique to find this state of pure-being.

Yoga for a Broken Heart: How to Practice When Things Fall Apart

IMG_2983.jpg

with Serena Roschman

Often the deepest grief can spur incredible transformation within an individual. In this workshop, we will explore the yogic practices that can support your mind and body through loss. Blending the work of Tibeatean Buddhist Pema Chodron with ancient tantric yogic wisdom and practice, we will build a toolkit of practices you can use on your healing path. How can we use loss to cultivate compassion, develop self-awareness, and, ultimately, create more liberation? 

All levels welcome. Expect gentle flow, breathwork, meditation, yoga nidra, and journaling.

Cost: $35

"Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that’s ego. Love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go.'” ~ Maya Angelou"

Healing the Warrior Woman

With Kathleen Katsikeas

When we think "warrior," often we describe an ancient hero (usually in a cheesy Hollywood movie), who defies all realms of reality to overcome immense obstacles, and has a 6-pack on top of that. But in reality, the warrior woman is one who lives in present time AND overcomes obstacle after obstacle. Her triumphs are often silent ones, or silenced; she has to fight her way to be seen, because she is asked so often to disappear. 

In this workshop we will delve in to what it means to be a woman/female-identifying in our day and age, looking at the overall perspective of woman-hood, and the social programming that interweaves. We will discuss where women are discouraged/encouraged, invalidated/validated in both general and personal experience. As well as, how we can support and uplift ourselves and one another.

This event is open for all women/female-identifying persons. 

Lecture & Discussion, Gentle Asana, and a mini-female energy healing on all students.

Class size limited to 10 people.

Rewriting Your Self-Contracts

With Melissa Renzi

Our lives are based on relationships—with ourselves and with others. Our relationships are based on “contracts” or agreements that are often unconscious and unspoken. To grow and live consciously, we must choose contracts that align with our truth, health, and love.

This workshop is for you if:

+ You want to strengthen your commitment to yourself and your unique path.
+ You think you might be living in a way that feels misaligned with what you value.
+ You find yourself shrinking your own voice in relationship to others.
+ You notice a pattern in relationship to yourself or others that doesn’t serve you.
+ You would like greater intimacy and meaning in your relationships.

Join me as we:

+ Use mind-body awareness to identify our unconscious contracts.
+ Own our right to have our needs met.
+ Explore mind-body techniques to shift anxiety and help us follow our contracts.
+ Honor our voices as we communicate our needs.
+ Celebrate the freedom of conscious contracts.
+ Move through a brief yoga class specifically designed to awaken truth, health, and love.
We will explore, share, and change old beliefs using reflective exercises, interactive discussion, meditation, and movement techniques.

**We expect this workshop will sell out quickly, so register now to reserve your spot.**

Beginner’s Philosophy: Practical, Modern Yogic Wisdom

With Serena Brommel

How do the physical practices of yoga postures and breathing techniques relate to the deeper work of resolving emotions and inducing mental clarity? This workshop aims to demonstrate the clear linkages between the primary tools of breath-centric yoga and the foundations of meditation.

Join Serena for an exploration of techniques and a discussion of the theories that drive them. Develop a deeper understanding of what you’re doing on the mat that will help enrich your personal practice and build momentum for deeper, more effective yoga.

Through our practice and conversation we will:

  • Learn how breath-centric yoga develops concentration
  • Explore energy from a yogic perspective
  • Look for stillness through opposing movement
  • Conceive the mind as a field of movement that we can actively influence
  • Discuss common misconceptions that may impede our growth

This is not an advanced practice; all techniques we explore will be accessible to newer students. A little prior yoga experience will be helpful, but it is not required. Wear comfortable clothing for gentle movement, and a pad and pen in case you want to take notes.
