TEACHER TRAINING AND DEEPENING YOUR PRACTICE CERTIFICATIONS
We are now accepting applications for our next Yoga Teacher Training Program. Our program is not only for people who are interested in teaching yoga, but more importantly, it is perfect for anyone who is looking to deepen their own practice or who is looking for a personal growth opportunity. We offer two tracks: The first track is the actual Yoga Teacher Training which includes everything you need to become a Certified Yoga Teacher and allows you to Register with the Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level. The second track is called the Deepening Your Practice track. This is for people who are not necessarily interested in teaching yoga, but who want to use the training as a personal growth opportunity where they will learn more about yoga, its philosophy and practices, as well as themselves during the process. We are now accepting applications for our both tracks. The next program will begin in May, 2020. You may move through all of the Modules in order, or you can take up to three years to complete the Training on your own timeline. Please contact Stephanie if you or someone you know is interested and she will send a copy of the full syllabus for whichever track you are interested in as well as an application. Feel free to check out the YTT section of our website.

Saturday, November 9 from 10:00 - 11:00 am
We are happy to welcome Daphne Shatto, LMT, RYT200, Reiki Master to our studio! Starting in October you can book a Thai Yoga Massage or a Reiki session with Daphne by emailing her at email@example.com or by calling the studio.
Thai Yoga Massage is a full body treatment that begins at the feet and ends at the head, traditionally on the floor using a Thai mat. By utilizing a series of gentle assisted yoga postures as well as applying pressures on Zen energy lines of the body, we can improve circulation, flexibility, range of motion and increase energy. The client remains fully clothed and no oils are used. It is highly recommended to wear comfortable clothing that allows for movement when receiving a Thai yoga massage. The cost is $100 for a 75 minute session.
REIKI is an energetic healing therapy originating in Japan. Rei meaning 'God's wisdom or Higher Power' and Ki which is 'life force energy'. It is administered or channeled by a REIKI practitioner laying hands on the receiver's body. Reiki treats the whole person, mind, body, spirit and emotions and is natural and safe. While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion and there is nothing you need to believe in order to use and benefit from Reiki. The cost is $70 for an hour session.

Restorative yoga uses props to support the body so both body and mind can be at ease. This yoga allows you to relax, re-center, heal, and rejuvenate and is for everyone. We’ll use restorative poses and breath work to move from the sympathetic nervous system’s fight or flight state and reclaim the rest and digest state of the parasympathetic nervous system. Because of the nature of this class it is limited to 8 people. The cost is $20 and the class will be taught by Kate Toczek, E-RYT 500 & YACEP. To sign up email Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 717.395.5708.
MOVING ART WORKSHOP
Yoga & Expressive Arts!
Saturday, October 19
from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
(includes a short lunch break, please bring a packed lunch)
Join Lisa Hahnlen, MS, 200 Hour CYT & Expressive Arts Facilitator for a 4-hour workshop joining Gentle Yoga and Meditation with Expressive Arts. Combining these modalities will allow you to be more fully present in your body as you explore your creative side with Intuitive Painting in a judgement-free zone. The cost is $40.
What are Expressive Arts, you may wonder… any expressive art practice (including Intuitive Painting) will call on you to attend to your inner experience while creating. Rather than setting expectations for the final product or any specific result - it is the process of expressing yourself via the art form that is the goal. If you don’t consider yourself an “artist,” it can be even easier to access this process! Regardless of your background, the real take away from this type of experience will not be about an art piece (although you may treasure yours), but the chance to step out of your regular way of showing up in the world. You will be encouraged to express your creativity by following a sense of what you're drawn to (whether color, shape or image). It offers you the practice of growing your creative self in a nurturing environment while more deeply connecting to yourself.
LIMITED TO 10 PARTICIPANTS
To register, please use this link: www.registerfeelyourart.com

You can contact Lisa: email@example.com or at 717-982-2216 (text or call)
