RESTORATIVE & THERAPEUTIC YOGA WITH MEDITATION with Julia Lorimer

Julia Lorimer Date/Time:
Four Saturdays: Jan. 19, Feb. 16, Mar. 16 & Apr. 20 • 2:30 – 4:30pm
Instructor: Julia Lorimer
Fees:
- $40 pre-registered, each class
- $45 drop-in, each class
Levels: All – some yoga experience is helpful

Each workshop will help you to identify the cause and the effect of tension patterns that can lead to chronic pain and injuries. Each of these workshops will provide you with effective and long-lasting series to release tension and pain from your mind and body. Presented in simple language, Julia will demonstrate alignment principles for achieving balance, core strength and deep breathing as they apply to various body regions and conditions.

The activities of daily living including sitting, standing and moving will become sources of healing and less sources of stress, tension and pain. You will gain a deeper sense of resilience from the wear and tear of life as you move through the world.

Guided meditations taught in class help you to calm your reactions to the stresses of life. They provide a quiet place to relax in your own stable presence and to discover yourself more healed and whole. In meditation, the wayward mind is led back to its own source, your own benign presence, where you are free of everything unwanted, simple and free.

These guided meditations are based in non-dual teachings gleaned from the Vedanta scriptures, the Yoga Sutras, and the Bhagavad Gita as taught by Swami Dayananda.

Classes will focus on healing yourself from pain in the following areas
- Jan. 19: Low Backs & Hips
- Feb. 16: Hips, Knees & Ankles
- Mar. 16: Upper Back, Shoulders & Wrists
- Apr. 20: Neck & Shoulders

Levels: All

Jamie will give a special class at the end of each month devoted to poses (asanas) of deep relaxation and restoration.

“These asanas are known as Visranta Karaka asanas and are meant to rest the organic body. Each organ is as though separated from the others in order to oxygenate and rest. With the knife of consciousness and awareness, one is able to dissect the body from inside.
However, one has to prolong the duration of stay in the asanas five to ten minutes, in order to have recovery” Geeta S. Iyengar

“Health Is the delicate balance in harmony of the body, mind and spirit where physical disabilities and mental distractions have vanished.”
— BKS Iyengar

Get the New Year Started Right! Health Is Everything!

Health’s value is often taken for granted until we lose it. Like yoga, maintaining good health is about balance, strength, and flexibility. Don’t wait for the government to pass legislation; create your own health plan. Gain a new understanding of healthy life style choices. Join us to practice asana and explore DEEP MEDICINE as we learn how to harness the source of our healing power with our yoga community.

Susy Stewart began her study of yoga more than 40 years ago. Her yoga practice has been fueled by several trips to India where she studied with the Iyengars and followers of Sri Aurobindo.

Bill Stewart, MD, is the co-founder of the Sutter Health Institute for Health and Healing and author of “Deep Medicine: Harnessing the Source of your Healing Power.”

“When it comes to our health, our choices are often our destiny. In Deep Medicine, Dr. Stewart supports our choices with the skill of a surgeon and the wisdom of a healer.”
— Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, professor and author of Kitchen Table Wisdom

KUNDALINI YOGA WORKSHOP with Eileen Murphy

Eileen Murphy Date/Time:
- Sunday, Feb. 24 • 2:00–4:00 pm
Instructor: Eileen Murphy
Fees:
- $25 pre-registered or drop-in
Levels: All levels welcome, no previous experience necessary

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is unlike any other yoga you have seen, done, or heard about! Kundalini Yoga is a masterful technology that uses postures, breath, and mantra to prompt all of the body's systems to work as a whole. Kundalini Yoga is the master of energy management. Kundalini Yoga takes the energy within you and sets off a chain of events that will systematically guide that energy through every system in your body to create a state of homeostasis.

Kundalini Yoga teaches us how to be the boss of our nervous system. When we are faced with stressful situations, the immediate response from the body is one of protection. This causes various stress hormones to be released. This initial reaction is part of the autonomic nervous system and is beyond our control. However, what happens after that is absolutely within our control! Kundalini Yoga will teach you techniques to quickly reverse the stress response. What we think dictates how we feel, and in turn, how we react. Because we are human, the goal is not to always feel calm. The goal is a quick turnaround time from stress to ease.

A magnificent 36" symphonic gong is used in class and if all else fails, the gong will gently vibrate every part of your being until that vibration matches that of your intuition… God… Spirit. Its effects are quick and they run deep. It will take you there!

No yoga experience is necessary. This workshop can be done seated in a chair, standing, seated or lying down. It is accessible to all. We all just do what we can in that moment. Eileen's classes are laced with humor and laughter. No perfection in sight! All humans are welcome!
