Wise Warriors (Zoom) with Cathy

Fridays, July 15-August 26, 9:30-10:30am
Building muscle while keeping the body flexible is crucial from mid-life throughout our senior years if we want to enjoy a vibrant lifestyle. Improving muscular endurance and joint mobility can help you perform better the whole day in whatever activities you enjoy. Unlike weight training, yoga uses an integrated whole-body method for strengthening while also improving balance and reducing stress. This class can help retain the function commonly lost with age and chronic conditions. Join Cathy for a “wise” yoga practice to maximize mobility and minimize risk.

Wednesdays, October 12 – December 14; 6:30-8:30pm

Imagine a life free from pain and sorrow and infused with joy and tranquility. The ancient yogis called this state Vishoka, and they insisted that we all can reach it, even in the midst of a highly chaotic world.

How do we do it? We train our mind to stay focused on what we can control. We design our meditation practice, our yoga lifestyle, and our worldview to support our evolution towards Vishoka.

The Vishoka Meditation® Course is the official companion to Pandit Rajmani Tigunait’s Vishoka Meditation book and is designed to help you comprehensively experience the wisdom and practices described therein.

In this intensive program, we’ll go through Vishoka Meditation step-by-step, and break down all the preparatory practices as well as the complete practice of Vishoka Meditation. Learn each step systematically, while you build your practice at home in between sessions. The Vishoka Meditation system expands on the 5-Step meditation process you know from the Himalayan Tradition. It will help you take your practice to the next level, and is designed for students of all proficiencies, from those just beginning, to experienced meditators and yoga teachers.

Cost: $349 (Payment Plan Offered)
EARLY BIRD: $299 – Register by September 15, 2022

Attention Yoga Teachers: This course qualifies for 20 CEU credits with Yoga Alliance. This course is a prerequisite for the Vishoka Meditation Teacher Training Course offered through the Himalayan Institute headquarters in Honesdale, PA.

Strength of Heart: Sequencing for the Chest, Shoulders, and Neck (Zoom) with Sarah Guglielmi, MS, E-RYT-500, AYT

Saturday, October 15, 10am-1pm
CEU – Open to Teachers and Interested Students
Yoga practice is a continual exploration of the mind/body connection. The physical ease and emotional strength of our heart can be supported by our asana practice. Specifically, asana elements that develop strength and stability in the chest, shoulders, and neck regions of the body. Join Sarah to explore common muscle imbalances of the upper body, and how they can be better addressed by first understanding the relationship between agonist/antagonist muscle pairs in this area. Then, we’ll apply this knowledge to create sub-sequences you can use as stand-alone therapeutic practices, or to integrate into a traditional practice.
This course qualifies for three Continuing Education credits with Yoga Alliance.
This class will be available on Zoom. Meeting code will be emailed 24 hours before class time.
