“SYMPHONY of SOUNDS” – Sound Bath and Yoga Nidra Meditation w/ JENNIFER VAGIOS

June 16th

4:00-6:00 PM

$40

Click here to book a class. (FOLLOW LINK FOR WORKSHOPS)

Join Jennifer Vagios as she guides you through a unique journey of orchestrated sacred sounds and yoga nidra meditation.

Jennifer will lead you through a sound “experience” that will be the ultimate journey for your mind, body, spirit and senses. The class will start with discussion, mantra music/kirtan, setting intentions and a gentle yoga practice to open the body up.

You will then lie down and be serenaded by Jen’s unique blend of Sacred Sounds using crystal and tibetan singing bowls, gong, vocal tones, and more.

The class will end with a guided yoga nidra meditation ultimately allowing you to surrender into stillness, relaxation and pure consciousness.

**Sound is energy. Ancient science tells us that we are created from sound. Sound is vibration and all on this planet is vibrating. When you hear the sounds your cells begin to do an internal dance. They get shaken up and release all that is harmful.

Expect the ultimate restorative and blissful experience.

The Power of Props


Version 2

The Power of Props: Refine Your Practice Using Blocks, Straps and the Wall

June 3rd

1:30-3:00 pm

$30

w/ Jen Krakowsky

Click here to book a class. (follow link for workshop)

In this workshop, we will use props, such as blocks, straps and the wall, to explore new and fun ways to fine tune many of the basic poses you encounter in a typical vinyasa class. Learn how using props can help advance your practice and bring more strength, alignment and awareness to your poses.

This is not a flow class, but instead a workshop where we will deconstruct a handful of key poses, including downward facing dog, the warriors and tree pose. If you feel your downward facing dog could use a little help (and really, whose couldn’t?), this workshop is perfect for you.

Prior yoga experience suggested.

Enrollment is limited to 10 so students can get individual attention.

Yoga Fundamentals:SPRING SERIES


hohnyyogacom_8a9cfa4b

YOGA FUNDAMENTALS:

This FIVE week series will walk students carefully through the building blocks of a full vinyasa class in installments.

Class 1 will begin with an understanding of ujayii pranayama, or “victorious breath” used in vinyasa yoga, followed by warm up poses. The class will step through the elements of a Sun Salutation sequence, focusing on each pose in the sequence individually, eventually linking them into a flowing movement.

Class 2 will focus on several standing poses such as the Warrior poses, side angles, and standing balance poses.

Class 3 will explore forward bends and twists.

Class 4 will link all the elements of the first three classes, and move to an exploration of back bending poses as well as one or two beginner level inversions.

Class 5   will incorporate all that has been learned so far, and will be an opportunity to flow through a beginner class in a supportive, gentle environment….leaving space for questions on prop usage for modifying poses based on individual needs.

The series of 5 classes will leave students able to then move into our 1/2 and mixed level classes if they wish to. Students may also choose to repeat the fundamentals as many times as they like until they feel ready/able to move into the general classes.

Meditation and Breathing Class, open for all


wwwhohnyyogacom_f1f9589dTuesday sessions are open to all.

Feeling stressed?
Can’t catch your breath?
Can’t sleep?

Throughout the day, when we experience stress, our bodies automatically react in ways that prepare us to fight or run. In some cases of extreme danger, this physical response is helpful. However, a prolonged state of such agitation can cause physical damage to every part of the body and can lead to serious medical problems. Join Hastings Yoga in this series where we learn how meditation corrects much of the damage caused by stress, helping the body to repair itself, restoring the body to a calm state, and preventing new damage due to the physical effects of stress. Yoga and meditation instructor Joy Solomon will also describe and demonstrate focused breathing techniques that enhance the mind’s ability to stay present and to be fully engaged.

Registration is available here

Class dates are Tuesdays, 8:15-9:00PM.

Cost
$20/drop in

Seating is limited, registration is suggested, but not required. Both chair and bolster seating will be available.
