Teen Yoga, Aerial and Flow Arts with Melissa Mann
These sessions are designed especially for teens to assist in achieving deeper confidence and self assurance by empowering teens through Aerial Yoga, Flow arts, meditation, discussion and building creativity with a creative project each session.
Through each class it is our hope to assist teens through an inner journey as they discover the essence of themselves, and provide the self-assurance and confidence they need as they venture out into the world. It is important to start with a strong and stable foundation to build from. We will work together to create a beautifully conscious mind, body and spirit.
Classes alternate between Aerial Yoga (limited to 8 students) and Flow Arts or other artistic yoga expressions (no student limit).
In a non-competitive and nurturing environment, your child will practice silly asana sequences, play fun and challenging yoga style games, learn simple partner poses, learn skills & techniques for self-calming and stress relief. We will also learn breathing techniques and mantras and fun chants.Thematic ideas such as peace, respect, gratitude & acceptance will be introduced through literature and discussion. This class provides a fun filled way to cultivate self-esteem and body awareness. Yoga style games refine co-operation and listening skills which are essential for success in school. Our goal is to develop strong minds and bodies while learning to release tension and relax which helps keep the spirit bright. Each class will end with Meditation and sharing circle.

During this Elemental yoga practice, you will be introduced to the Traditional Chinese Philosophy of the Fire element. The Five Element theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine is a holistic philosophy based on the observation of the natural cycles and interrelationships in both our environment and within ourselves. By focusing on each element and its corresponding season, we can see how the five element can help keep our body, mind and spirit in harmony.
In this class, you will be guided through a gentle Yang yoga flow with breath practices balanced with Yin postures corresponding with the Heart & Small Intestine meridians. Yin yoga employs long holds of ground-based practice to unlock tension and trauma from the deeper tissues. This blend of Yang and Yin style practice through asana, breath and meditation is used to balance the energies of the summer season. Embrace the fire within you and dive deeper into your yoga practice!

Meditation and Visualization with Magali Diskus
Understanding the Mind-Body-Spirit connection through Meditation. Looking at Meditation as a tool and a destination. After exploring the mind, its role, processes and purposes, we explore the way it connects the spirit to the body at the energetic level. We present our definition of the meditative state and explain how it creates cohesion between the Mind, Body and Spirit, and also illustrates the meaningful interdependence of these essential instances.
In this workshop we explore the ideal circumstances for the most effective meditation practices. Meditation is a destination in itself with a full relevance to the greater purpose of human life on earth, facilitating ascension and conscious meditation allowing to go deeper into the physical practice and act as a bridge to the spirit and the inner self, introducing here the idea of transcendence in perfecting a deep conscious yoga practice. Each section ends with a themed guided meditation. Sharing and journaling will be encouraged.
Saturday and Sunday, October 6-7th, 8:30AM - 5:30PM
Therapeutic Yoga, Part 1 with Rachel Wilson
In this workshop, students will learn multiple common physical/medical conditions or concerns that can be addressed through various yoga techniques. We will learn how to look at health conditions through the lens of yoga therapy, and will determine practices or postures that provide benefit to each condition. Students will learn to perform in-depth client assessments. Students will gain tools and experience that will allow them to conduct a full client assessment to determine specific areas of concern for an individual client. This will include principles of client evaluation, full postural assessment practice and the development of a specific therapeutic program to address conditions that were discovered. Asana, pranayama, and other holistic practices will be used to create a thorough program that can be utilized, and practice time will be given to develop such programs for partners in the workshop. Students will feel comfortable and qualified to meet one-on-one with clients needing therapeutic yoga, and will be more qualified to assess and address moderate issues in a traditional yoga class setting. Students will participate in classes that are condition-specific (for example, yoga for back-pain relief), and will learn to develop their own therapeutic classes to aid and support specific conditions.
