Workshops

Friday Night: Aligned Yin

With Valerie Herzog, Friday March 3  6:30 -8:00 PM

$20 or one class from your card, no reservations.

Aligned Yin is an introspective practice that offers a chance to turn inward and nurture the calm, quiet center that is innate in all of us. It is a practice in stillness, patience, and non-reactivity and allows you to transition to your weekend in a most ease-full way. Yin Yoga with its longer holdings of yogic postures, is designed to work deep into the connective tissue to activate changes and releases at the most profound level.  Using passive postures with holdings of 1-5 minutes, it challenges you to find peace in stillness. Our Aligned Yin practice will involve more alignment than is typical for a Yin Yoga practice to assure your practice remains safe and most effective.  This Friday night class will enhance your experience and understanding of the focus, attentiveness, and mindfulness that practicing yoga gives.  Suitable for all levels from beginners to advanced students.

Transcendental Breathwork Workshop

With Megan Gouldner  Friday, April 14, 6:30 – 8:30 PM

$45 in advance, $50 at the door

 

For thousands of years Yogis, Sages and Shamans have used systems of breath work for mastering fear, healing illness and attaining states of enlightenment. In this workshop, Megan will guide you through a powerful technique: a safe conscious-connected breath cycle to help stimulate the body’s natural ability to cleanse itself and heal limiting thought patterns and belief systems trapped within our cellular memory.  Some benefits include:

  • 70% of biochemical toxins are removed from the body through the breath. Conscious Breathing is a detox.
  • Conscious Connected Breathing helps balance the hemispheres of the brain, enhancing the endocrine, nervous and cardiorespiratory systems.
  • This technique supports emotional integration

Join us as we celebrate the Wheel of the Year, breathing into the magnificent power of Spring invoking new life, a rebirth and the remembrance of the that which you already are. We look forward to breathing with you!  Bring a yoga mat and a cozy blanket.

Megan Gouldner is a Non-Verbal Communication Specialist, Seminar Leader and an Alternative Medicine Practitioner. She has created an eclectic system of Bodywork based on the Collard Method – combining the observation of Body Language, Structural Integration, Energy Healing and Intuition.  The breath is a powerful tool for transformation. Learning to access its power is a gift, one I am honored to share. If you have further questions, feel free to email Megan at: artoflistening@me.com
