MARCH 2019

Surya Namaskara Breakdown with Traci McKnight
2 Mondays, March 18th + 25th, 6:00 – 8:00pm

A two part workshop deconstructing the Alignment and Energetics of Sun Salutation A. Surya Namaskara is a foundational part of almost every Vinyasa Yoga class, yet students rarely receive the instruction needed to keep this pattern of movement safe, effective and sustainable over many years of practice. In this two part workshop, students will receive detailed instruction and individual attention in each posture of SN- from the basic mechanics to energetic qualities, safe transitions, and possible variations of each pose. Join us to explore, feel, unlearn, and relearn these fundamental forms. Please note that participants must commit to attend both dates.

Reiki 1 Training with Danielle Fowler and Melanie Wassman
Friday, March 29th, 1:00pm-5:30pm
Reiki 1 training prepares you to provide Reiki healing on yourself and encourages the practitioner to have direct experience with Reiki energy. Level 1 training is a practitioner’s initiation into Reiki and is open to anyone. The focus during Level 1 is for self-healing through balancing and harmonizing the major energy centers known as chakras. The Level 1 initiation opens the central energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy. It connects the student to the universal energy permanently, allowing them to channel the energy whenever they wish. We emphasize self-Reiki as the goal of the Level 1 designation, encouraging students to focus on practicing Reiki on themselves, thereby doing the personal work to clear obstacles and experience optimal wellbeing. This training includes an instructional manual.
