Jivamukti Chakra Tuning Workshop

Saturday, September 21st • 3-5PM
Westlake
with Jen Lenhart

“A chakra is a doorway through which we perceive reality. Our ability to see into the various dimensions of reality is reflected in the energetic ease or dis-ease found in our relationships. The disease of feeling disconnected from oneself and others is pervasive in our time.”-Sharon Gannon

Yoga tradition teaches that we have five bodies known as the koshas. These five bodies encase our true Self in a vehicle known as upadhi. The seven Chakras are the centers of the energetic body (pranamaya kosha) and relate karmically to the various relationships we have with ourselves, with others, and with the earth. When Chakras are imbalanced, blocked, or out of tune we are prevented from realizing our true Self.

During this 2-hour Jivamukti Yoga workshop, we begin with a discussion of the Chakras and then explore these seven doors of perception—from the root to the crown—using high intention, asana, pranayama, bija mantra, and other meditation techniques.

Through these various techniques, we will work on tuning or purifying the Chakras by energetically inhabiting each of these seven centers and addressing the disconnect in our relationships. We may come to understand the possible root causes of our emotional, mental, and physical challenges. This practice will encourage healing and a change in perception to make way for discovering our higher Self.

Jivamukti Yoga Fundamentals

Saturdays, October 5, 12, 19 & 26
3-4:30PM • Westlake
with Jen Lenhart

Whereas in the Open and Spiritual Warrior classes vinyasa is emphasized, in the Fundamentals class alignment is the emphasis. Students are taught “how to do” asanas as well as the use of props. The Fundamentals class provides the underlying structure to help a beginner student be able to eventually enter into an Open class intelligently and safely. Intermediate and advanced students will also benefit from exploring the alignment essentials presented in these classes. This class is suitable for beginners, but open to all levels of practitioner.

Each Jivamukti Fundamentals class is part of a four-week course that explores a different theme each week:
·   Week One: Standing Asanas
·   Week Two: Forward Bending Asanas
·   Week Three: Backward Bending Asanas
·   Week Four: Turning It Upside Down and “Putting it All Together”


Workshop cost: $25 per week ($100 for all 4)

Nutrition 101 Wellness Workshop

with Tanna Torkelson
October 5th, 10:30am - 12noon at Catawba Studio
October 19th, 1pm - 2:30pm at Westlake Studio


Sometimes we are just at a point where we know we need to make a change but do not know where to start. Maybe you’re starting a fitness regimen and want to support the changes with your diet in a healthful way. Or you could be looking to prevent or manage a disease that runs in your family or ward off symptoms with an autoimmune disease. There are so many reasons to want to take your health into your own hands.

Nutritional advice always seems to be changing and many people find it’s hard to sleuth through the marketing hype and fads to know where sound information rests and how to take a good first step.

Believe it or not, there is information that holds true regardless of what celebrity doctors or wellness bloggers present...and here’s the spoiler alert...the science of how our bodies work doesn’t change from one founding of a fad diet to the next!  There is a sound science to how the body works and how to meet your body’s needs. Let’s talk about that...

Join Tanna Torkelson, Registered Dietitian, Nutritional Educator, food enthusiast, yoga teacher, wellness junkie, wife and mom, for this “foundational” workshop. Not only will you learn how to meet your body’s needs but she’ll also share hard facts regarding the state of nutrition in our food supply and provide some insight into supplementation.

Tanna has spent over 15 years studying nutritional health and trying to learn effective, realistic strategies to offer her clients towards improving their overall physical wellbeing and relationship with food. She has over a decade of experience in managing celiac disease personally and many more years guiding her own family’s nutritional habits.

Workshop cost: $30.00
Pre-registration is requested as seating is limited.
