YOGA THERAPY FOR PSOAS INTRO COURSE

JAN 10th -Feb14th, Weds. 5:30 – 7:30pm

$108 – $135 sliding scale.

A gentle exploration to free the psoas while creating stability in the pelvis.  The psoas is central in our being for core movement and balance, hence our creativity, such as dance, speech/song, and our awakening, are profound aspects of its function. Because the fight/fright/freeze mechanism (autonomic nervous system) is set in the psoas, the practices also can release and integrate imbedded impressions of stress and trauma. Ideal for women in pre-conception phase or menopause, and for men and women with back and pelvis aches, stress and anxiety.  This is a gentle and safe release-work approach to take you to your next step on your path in mind, body and spirit.

 

AFFIRMATION YOGA COURSE

JAN 11th – Feb 15th, Thurs. at 9:15 – 11am

Your way of thinking has a profound effect on an emotional and cellular level, often keeping you tethered to negativity or other’s projections. This course helps you become aware of your internal narrative and inquire why it is there (kept confidential to you). We will practice gentle yoga as embodiment, writing, contemplation, affirmation creation and archetypal alignment. Bring your mind out of the wilderness, clarify perception, gain skillful mental authority and immunity.

DEEP FOREST YOGA THERAPY RETREATS WITH ARDEN AT TEMENOS

MAY 11th – 13th 2018
Earlybird Rate $200 with nonrefundable deposit of $70 paid before March 15th. $230 is regular rate after March 15th.

Join me this Spring in the experiences of Yoga at the magical Temenos Retreat Center.  Temenos offers access to nature and beauty that supports the pathway of going within.  The forest, pond, trails speckled with fall leaves, labryrith and views are just amazing.  This gem is right in our backyard, just a one hour drive from Northampton.
The name Temenos is taken from a Greek word meaning the sacred space surrounding a temple or an altar. Carl Jung used this same word to refer to the inner space deep within us where soul-making takes place. Here, we remember the sacredness of our natural world, rekindling our connections to the earth, water, and all the creatures and growing things inhabiting this temenos. In returning to the natural cycles of the earth, we learn to live in balance with nature.
Fee includes teaching & accommodations!
Food expenses will be shared averaging about $15 per day.
