|Yoga Nidra ... & Bliss Following|
Following your bliss takes surprising twists and turns. Yoga so does that to people, surprises them with who they are, that it's a classic pattern that you start yoga to help your game, job, or relationship, and you discover your bliss in wholly other directions than you ever expect. Write me your story! (Yes I'll go to Blog format eventually, and that will be even more fun!) For me: Yoga took me by surprise in 1996; then Yoga surprised me even more when it took me into full-time teaching in 2002; then in 2007 Yoga flipped me upside down and I became an AcroYoga teacher the following year.
I still love Vinyasa, but my ever growing passions this season ~ in addition to AcroYoga 10 years now ~ are: Reiki, Brazilian Zouk dance, Non-Violent Communication, and Yoga Nidra, the yogic sleep derived from the ancient tantric practice of nyasa. I so love offering Yoga Nidra, I am passionate about it and want you all to get thee to a practice near you! There are CDs and MP3s, even Apps. And there are plenty of classes and teachers! Hit me up with questions or for a list of what you're looking for. To practice it with me on Mondays at 1:15-2PM, come to beautiful Pure Yoga Eastside. Email me for a guest spot if you are not a Pure member.
|AcroYoga Elemental Immerison Feb 18-21|
As AcroYoga and I celebrate our 10th Anniversary this November, we are still deeply enamored, and teaching Elemental Immersions are the deepest expression of my love for AcroYoga. These 30-hour immersions, unlike classes or workshops or festivals, truly soak you in the nectar of the love at the core of the practice. And that is love in the form of personal yoga/union, of partner interactions in endless expressions, in group partnership and personal leadership. There is the luxury of depth and spaciousness of relating only available with such a commitment of time.
Whether you are repeating an Immersion or doing your first one; whether you are a total newbie or you've practiced long enough to know you wish to go deeper; whether you have your eye on teacher training somewhere on your horizon; the Elemental Immersion has the potential to be life transforming in self-discovery, as well as growth. It is the rich dessert of my AcroYoga teaching meal; I'm so pleased to share it yet again with New York City. It fulfills one of the pre-reqs for AcroYoga Teacher Training in my tri-fold lineage from co-founders Jason Nemer and Jenny Sauer-Klein, for which I'm proud and grateful.
Yoga teachers may count it for 30 CEU hours for YA. Email me with questions! Click for Details, Registration, and Facebook Event link.
