    Advanced Restorative Yoga Training

    Explore Restorative Yoga beyond the basics!
    This advanced restorative yoga training is for experienced restorative yoga teachers and students who would like to expand their knowledge of the therapeutic benefits of this practice as well as explore various new poses not covered in introductory restorative yoga trainings. Those who practice restorative yoga understand the importance of this yoga practice on the body, mind, the health of the organs, the spine and the nervous system.

    In this 20-hour training, we will explore more deeply the benefits of this practice on the organs of the body, the spine and how this practice can assist with anxiety, fear and depression as well as other health conditions. We will review a few basic poses and cover more complex poses such as inversions, shoulder stand, and back bends as well as new variations of savasana.
    We will also gain more knowledge on the physiology of relaxation and the importance of finding calm in our busy lives. Students will have the opportunity to practice poses and explore how to use props to fully support the body (including variations depending on health conditions) and leave the training with new many new poses to explore in their personal practice, in group classes as well as with individual students.

  • Workshop - Power & Gong Master Class

    Workshop - Power & Gong Master Class

    Saturday, November 23rd, 3:00pm - 6:00pm
    Workshop - Power & Gong Master Class
    Experience an epic journey that combines the physical effects of a 2-hour Power Yoga practice with the profound meditative benefits of a 45-minute gong sound bath.
    Power Yoga strengthens your body, increases flexibility, promotes stamina and weight loss as well as improving posture and balance.
    The gong creates an ocean of sound that is profoundly relaxing; a state which activates the parasympathetic nervous system to balance the over-amped, over-taxed sympathetic nervous system.
    Power will challenge you physically and prepare your body for meditation; the Gong will seal the deal and bring you home.
    After Power Yoga and a Gong sound bath, you will likely feel as mellow as mellow gets!
    Cost: $55.00 per person.

  • New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    Tuesday, November 26th, 5:45pm - 7:15pm
    New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    "Prosperity is a state produced immediately by the mind. When the sun comes out of the clouds, everything is lit. When the mind comes out of duality, prosperity is there."- Yogi Bhajan
    Meditating at the time of the New Moon intensifies our intentions and makes it an ideal time to focus on prosperity (personal and business) and abundance using the energy of the New Moon combined with Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditations. Prosperity and abundance come in many forms. 
    When one’s internal attitude is out of alignment, it doesn’t matter what that person has or doesn’t have in the material world.  When we connect with an internal attitude of prosperity, we become like a magnet. The abundance of the universe flows to us.
    Our class includes breath work (pranayam), a short yoga set (kriya) for awareness, a prosperity meditation followed by a deep relaxation (savasana) in the celestial sounds and vibrations of two Gongs.

    Cost: PranaShanti Class Card or Drop-in Fee.
