Mother’s Day Forrest Yoga Workshop, 5/9/10, 9:30 – 12:00pm

May 9th, 2010
9:30 AM – 12:00 PM

All Levels of Men and Women Welcome:

“Celebrate Mother’s Wisdom for a Healing Practice”

With Angela and Jill (one teacher, one hands-on adjuster/modifier resource)

This workshop will be dynamic in both asana and relationship with Self, as we explore ways of staying struggle free while feeling into the pleasure of the fun and sweaty neck, shoulders and hips class. The neck and shoulders are the first “narrows”* allowing receptivity, responsibility and compassion be turned on. The low back and hips are the second “narrows”, allowing foundation, strength and endurance be felt, thus completing one’s sense of self, and grounded-ness when at ease.

In this workshop you’ll experience:

* pranayama

* core conditioning and basic warm up postures

* how internal heat encourages energetic openings, and the release of (mental & physical) holding patterns,

* fun-feeling freedom in our shoulders & hips, and

* tea provided, too!

No experience necessary, just a willingness to stay connected to breath, and to what your Spirit needs. Wear comfortable clothing, and be ready to sweat! Please bring water, a yoga mat, strap and block to this workshop.

Price: $30 before 5/9 & $35 day of event

To register, call (206) 972-2999

*the “narrows” refer to Alexander Lowen’s “Bioenergetics” of mind-body psychotherapy.

“A person who doesn’t breathe deeply reduces the life of his body.  If he doesn’t move freely, he restricts the life of his body.  If he doesn’t feel fully, he narrows the life of his body.  And if his self-expression is constricted, he limits the life of his body.” ~Alexander Lowen, 1910~

It’s Springtime!

After the past month’s rains, our mountains and meadows are bursting with green life.  Starting or reawakening your yoga practice is a potent way to shrug off the winter and clear your body and mind for Spring.  We hope you can join us for some of these yoga offerings!

Easter Sunday YOGA is ON !!

That’s right, Easter  Sunday class is ON 6:30 – 8pm.

Give thanks by breathing deep and feeling into each movement!!

Spring reminds us that her nature is love and rebirth. Easter reminds us that love heals all wounds, and great love triumphs over death. We have the opportunity to recreate Easter in our hearts, every day, every MOMENT with every person including ourselves.

So much thanks, and love!

Spring into Class!

After the past month’s rains, our mountains and meadows are bursting with green life.  Starting or reawakening your yoga practice is a potent way to shrug off the winter and clear your body and mind for Spring.  We hope you can join us for some of these yoga offerings!

Our Forrest Yoga & AcroYoga schedule, as well as April’s workshops, are a great way to experience that self-made sense of Spring clearing! Please share in the experience for your own health, vitality, and comfort!

If you’re new to Forrest Yoga, Sunday’s slower paced, informative class will provide you with a strong foundation in the practice, preparing you for Tuesday’s 90 minutes of energy cleansing movement. Both Wednesday & Friday morning classes reflect that of the collective mood, modifying and gravity-defying as desired. Wednesday’s 2 HOUR 630-830pm class challenges one’s sense of “going deeper“, with inversions, advancements, and longer holds, including savasana! Finally, Friday’s 630- 830pm AcroYoga class blends yoga, acrobatics and Thai massage, to suit ANY persons fancy.

All classes include:

  • a brief moment of pranayama and/or centering to begin
  • the embodied study and practice of the Yoga postures including correct body positioning and alignment
  • detailed instruction on how to combine breath and movement
  • modifications available and encouraged for most any need

Namaste,
Angela & Jill
