 Upcoming Workshops

 

Monday, August 28th, 8:00 am-12:00 pm ~ Vinyasa Yoga and Qigong: Flowing Into Wholeness
The Arlington Center, Arlington, MA

When the body flows like running water, it is always renewed, always fresh. This is true freedom.

While yoga has its roots in Indian Vedic scriptures, Qi Gong grew out of the Chinese Taoist pursuit of longevity. In this workshop we will explore the Taoist concept of “effortless flow” through Qi Gong exercises, and then bring the same ease of motion into sequences from Yoga of Energy Flow. While the movements in both forms are graceful and gentle, the effects are powerful, detoxifying the body while increasing strength, flexibility, and peace of mind.

You will learn:
• Breathing exercises to enhance life energy
• Qi Gong exercises to open the meridians
• Meditative flow in yoga sequences
• Concentration techniques for mental clarity

This workshops is part of the of the Yoga of Energy Flow 300-Hour Teacher Training, but can be attended individually to deepen one’s practice.

Tuesday, August 29th, 8:00 am-12:00 pm ~ The Power of the Breath: Inner Fire, Outer Radiance
The Arlington Center, Arlington, MA

Breath is life and life is breath. When breath flows, so does life. ~ Yogi Bhajan

Stoke the fire of the energy body through movement, asana, and breathing exercises. Drawing from Kundalini Yoga as well as classical pranayama sequences, these practices bathe your cells and brain with fresh oxygen and open the energetic circuits of the body. Learn to channel this heightened energy using bandhas (inner locks) and mudras (gestures that enhance mental focus) to strengthen physical rejuvenation, mental clarity, and connection with the creative infinite. When the inner fire of the soul is ignited, self-healing and self-realization are the result.
Yogi Bhajan said, “Breath is life and life is breath. When breath flows, so does life.” Deepen your relationship with breath and your “radiant body,” and come home to your true nature—pure presence in the here and now.

Tuesday, August 29th, 1:30 pm-5:30 pm ~ Meridian Yoga: Opening the Energetic Pathways
The Arlington Center, Arlington, MA

Our health is dependent on the free flow of chi/prana in our mind, body, and soul.

Using gentle pressure, body weight, and skillful touch to open the body’s energy pathways, we will work with a partner to increase our range of motion and perfect our alignment in yoga asanas associated with the fourteen meridians of Chinese medicine. A modern stretching method called resistance/PNF stretching will be taught, along with shiatsu and Thai Yoga massage. When we release the tensions that we store in our bodies, we experience a profound alignment of body, mind and soul. As nature's energy streams through us, the heart begins to sing and we become connected to the universal life force that bridges heaven and earth, sun and moon, and all of nature. Feel free to attend by yourself, or with a friend.
