Michael Morphis from YOGA WORKS in NYC

Saturday November 14th 1-3pm

The Body/Mind Connection: How asana (yoga poses) and the alignment principles of Iyengar Yoga can help us build greater attention in our practice and our lives. Thousands of years before modern science began acknowledging the link between the body and the mind, Yogis were deeply involved in exploring this connection from the inside out. According to classical Yoga philosophy, all our great, hard work in our physical practice is leading us towards Samadhi, or a peaceful, blissful state of undistracted, unbroken awareness. While it's unlikely that we will realize full Samadhi during this one workshop, for raw beginners as well as seasoned practitioners, there is tremendous value in orienting our practice in this direction. Together, we will explore how using our innate attention and the clear, foundational directions that create solid and stable poses can lead to greater overall awareness on and off the mat. A thorough exploration of core actions in all the families of poses (standing, sitting, forward bends, backbends, twists, abdominal, arm balances and inversions) will help us out create a platform from which to investigate if a well organized pose can really be a platform from which the mind can open to new insights and possibilities. Hope you can join us for the journey. Saturday Nov 14th 1-3pm $40 pre reg $45 day of

A Taste of TANTRA

Sunday December 13th from 12-2pm with Heather Simonson

Tantra is the art of living consciously on all levels, including sexually, and is derived from the ancient Sanskrit language meaning expansion through awareness or to weave. In this practice, sexual energy entwines the polarities of male and female into a harmonious whole, ultimately achieving balance within ourselves and with others, and enabling us to live juicy, blissful lives. Be empowered by integrating Tantra into your lifestyle, changing the quality of your sexuality and your overall wellbeing. Sexual energy is one of our most powerful energies for creating health, says Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Womens Bodies, Womens Wisdom. By using sexual energy consciously...we can tap into a true source of youth and vitality. Not only can your sexual life become greatly enhanced, but your communication becomes more natural & honest and in return your relationships become more connected and your lives enriched. The ancient practice of Tantra shows us how to open our hearts, our emotions and our sexuality. To achieve this enlightened outlook participants will learn the basic philosophies of Tantra and how to apply them in all aspects of their life. Participants will experience a series of exercises in breathing, yoga, and tone vibrations, as well as the engagement of special muscles and the magic of massage. Concentration on the energy centers of the body will help clear blocks that inter- fere with the movement of energy and create a path to higher states of consciousness and bliss. In this introduction to Tantra, participants will: Awaken the chakras using yoga and internal muscle exercises Develop a deeper understanding of true intimacy Empower yourself to transform sex and love into the art of conscious loving Improve communication and trust Learn how to create a sacred space through engaging the six senses Activate, guide and exchange your life force energy through the basics of breath Learn to give the most sacred massage with erotic touching Harmonize your moods and energies Enjoy the secrets to a longer, deeper and higher orgasm Heal from past hurts Both couples and singles are very welcome. Participants will be encouraged to pair up with a partner to practice techniques that are taught. So bring a friend or lover that you want to strengthen your connection with to this safe and respectful space. There is no disrobing or explicit sexual behavior. There are some exercises which involve touching the arm or back of a practice partner and eye gazing. No previous yoga or tantra experience necessary.
