Vitality Yoga Events
With Lana Heintjes
Sept 28th 1-3pm + Nov 9th 3-5pm
Are you eager to try handstands, but need some guidance? Have you been practicing handstands, but can’t find the balance or are too afraid to practice without a wall? Have a solid handstand, but want the press?? In this multilevel workshop, you will be offered tools at your level to make balancing on your hands a more attainable reality. You’ll learn strength building exercises, handstand alignment, shoulder openers, wrist recovery, and how to bail out of a handstand safely and comfortably. You will also have the opportunity to take your handstand to the next level if you’re ready.
Autumn Kosha Cleanse
Release your GRIEF
Saturday Oct. 12
Kundalini: 11:30-1:30 with Michael
Vegan lunch: 1:30-2
Zen yoga: 2-4 with Maggie
The Koshas are our 5 layers of BEING. Physical, Energetic, Focused Mind, Observer and our Bliss body in the heart.
According to the 5 Elements of Chinese Medicine, in the Autumn we work with the element of metal that corresponds to the energy of the lungs and large intestine, which are energetically in ‘high tide’.
This season is when the emotion of grief is strong.
In these 2 workshops we will focus on releasing grief through deep breath work, a physical yoga practice to help move stagnant grief, and meditations to shift our grief into benevolence towards ourselves and others.
This will be a profound communal workshop.
Come and breathe, chant, sweat and release with other like minded folks, share a meal together, then focus the mind in Zen yoga and turn your ‘metal into GOLD’.
This is the beauty of this practice; alchemy.
We have the choice to either allow our energy of metal to rust, or turn to gold.
Come shine your inner gold!
Heart Opening for Holiday Survival
with Denise Hopkins Sunday, November 24 . 1:00pm-3:00pm $40
Self- care means taking time out for YOU.
Self-care is self-preservation.
It means doing what you love, feeding yourself the gift of breath, being willing to say no without guilt. This is all necessary medicine for the holiday season. This special 2 hour Forrest Yoga class is the RESET you need to approach the weeks ahead. Set crystal clear intentions, get grounded, and feel the inner strength you need when facing triggers.
We will work with steadfast compassion in chest openers and therapeutic back bends. This class will be sequenced with a focus on back healing and strengthening and making space around the heart. All levels welcome.
Denise Hopkins is a Forrest Yoga Guardian teacher and has taught for the past 14 years. Her style is clear, direct and compassionate. She loves giving hands-on assists and working with students with injuries. More info: www.denisehopkinsyoga.com.
