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, 2019. 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.

September 8 & 22, October 6 & 20 and November 3 & 17 from 7:00 - 8:30 PM
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 breathwork 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.

This time Cathy will be re-educating us on the Pelvic Floor – where it is, what it does, how it relates to our abdomen/back/core and will focus on incontinence in all its many forms: from leaking when you laugh or sneeze, to urinary urgency, to having to get up several times a night to urinate. In addition, Cathy will show us simple, but effective exercises that we can do in our day to day lives to improve pelvic floor health and tone and to decrease the incidence of incontinence. In addition, there will be a specialized yoga practice led by Elizabeth Stuart, RYT200 which incorporates additional movements and exercises. The workshop will be from 10:00 – 12:00 noon on Saturday, September 21 and the cost is $25. Please call or email the studio to register.

Beginning Monday, October 7 from 5:30 - 6:30 pm
RETURNING IN OCTOBER!!! The Back to Basics Series is an entry level program for students who are new to yoga practice or for those who want to brush up on the basics.

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
