Balancing Chakras with Essential Oils with Michelle Nuener
Saturday April 30th at 9:30AM
An “imbalance” in your Chakras means that some Chakras are over-active, and some are under-active. Since the Chakras receive and transmit energy (which translates into psychic, emotional and physical energy) too much or too little may effect the way we think, act and feel; for instance, too little flow through the Heart Chakra could translate into a “hard hearted” and selfish personality, and too much flow through the Heart Chakra could translate into a person with a “bleeding heart”, someone who’s generous compassion can easily be taken advantage of. Join us in learning our Essential Oils, which have their own energy or vibrations, can help us balance for better health.

Embody Love Workshop
Monday May 16 from 6pm-9pm
With Debbie Valois
The Embody Love Workshop will take you on a transformational journey into self acceptance.

This is an interactive workshop that does include a 50 minute yoga practice.. In addition to that we have discussion around Media Literacy, a Body Image Project, Change Your Talk, Make a Commitment, and a Journey to Self Inquiry

This experience will be guided by Debbie Valois who is honored to be a certified facilitator of this program developed by Melody Moore, founder of the Embody Love Movement

Backbends stretch the front of the body, enabling us to move forward into the future with grace and ease.

We’ll lavish extra attention on the hips and shoulders, the gateways to the backbends. Then we’ll discuss some alignment pointers to help you comfortaby and safely bend back and open up. Finally, we’ll explore some deeper backbends, using modifications and variations to make the poses more accessible. Expect lots of hands-on assists to support you as you deepen your practice. We’ll finish with grounding forward bends and calming inversions. Class will include a brief meditation practice to quiet the mind. This backbending workshop will open your heart and expand compassion for all beings. Backbends are said to free us of the karma towards those we feel have hurt us. Allow these potent asanas to help you let go and let love..

Vinyasa Krama- A Master Class with Theresa Murphy

On Sunday October 16 from 1230-230 Come experience Theresa Murphy at LEY!!!!

$30

To register click here

Come immerse yourself in the depths of asana practice.

The word vinyasa is composed of two words: vi = order + nyasa = placement; and the word krama means “the uninterrupted sequence of events from beginning to end”; so the entire term means “the ordered placement of the sequence of events.”

Usually shortened simply to “vinyasa,” it refers to a flowing sequence of asanas linked by breath and intention. In this special class we’ll go thru a complete practice in that we’ll move in all directions.

This class is for seasoned students of asana, as we will practice more complex shapes and advanced asana. My definition of an advanced student, however, is one who knows how to take care of themselves and how to modify more complex shapes into shapes that are digestible for them.

It’s encouraged that students attending this class can push up into urdhva dhanurasana, kick up to handstand, can fully flex (bend) both knees, and can fold into lotus (or know how to modify). Students with less experience are welcome, but might learn more by watching at times!
