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

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 a brief discussion, setting intentions and a few gentle stretches just to open the body up.

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

The class will end with a yoga nidra meditation that will likely leave you melting into your mat, but ultimately allow you to surrender into stillness, relaxation and pure consciousness.

Note: No yoga experience necessary, this is not a yoga class. All are welcome.

**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.

Hip Opening Workshop: For runners, walkers, hikers & cyclists (ANYONE WHO MOVES!)


HIP OPENING WORKSHOP: For Runners, Walkers, Hikers & Cyclists (ANYONE WHO MOVES)

Saturday November 18th

4-5:30 PM

$40

click here to book a class (follow link for workshops)

This workshop is open to all levels of runners, hikers, walkers, bikers and all yoga practitioners. No yoga experience necessary!
We will not only strengthen and stretch the muscles of the hips, but we will work to regulate the breath and calm the mind. We will also incorporate strengthening of the core and upper body, areas easily neglected when the focus is on the legs.

Hips are complicated – too much tightness or weakness in various areas of the hips can lead to back pain, instability or other problems. Yoga is an effective way to prevent injury as you learn to listen to your body. While shifting through the poses, you will meet your physical boundaries which can help you recognize when to push yourself and when to pull back, both on and off the mat. Yoga can challenge you to recognize strengths and weakness, and helps counteract the impacts of active repetitive physical exercise such as running, hiking and more.

Susie Caramanica is a certified 200 hour RYT yoga teacher and an avid runner. After competing as an Division 1 runner in college for cross-country and distance races on the track, she kept up a running practice and continues to dabble in half marathons, 10Ks, 5Ks and sprint triathlons along with hiking and biking. She began practicing yoga in her early twenties to balance the effects of running, and it wasn’t until after practicing yoga for nearly two decades that her interest in yoga shifted towards mindfulness that led her to yoga teacher training. She enjoys making yoga accessible to all levels, emphasizing strength, stretch, breath and balance. She focuses asana on proper alignment while incorporating awareness and body mind connection, bringing a sense of calm, release and joy into each class.

Susie resides in Hastings on Hudson NY with her husband and three boys, and also works for IBM as a Change Management professional.

Gather: A Women’s Circle

Andrea and Heidi feel called to offer a regular, sacred gathering in response to a growing need for communal connection. Our intention for Gather is to create a safe space for women, and people who identify as such, to connect, reflect, and heal. GATHER is a monthly assembly.

The Divine Feminine invites us to remember those exalted states we have fallen out of balance with: creativity, intuition, and the spiritual. Women have always gathered in circles, to share, support, and transform. Gathering together in circle holds the space for our whole-selves and expanded consciousness. When women gather intentionally the potential for personal and collective transformation is amplified. Within GATHER, we will explore such topics as: creativity • intuition • psychic hygiene • meditation • movement • lunar cycles and seasons • plant medicine • spiritual community • consciousness • ritual • ancestral wisdom • magic

Heidi Smith is a therapist, herbalist, and flower essence practitioner. Personally and professionally, she feels called to assist in the collective shift towards greater divine feminine consciousness. Heidi holds a master’s degree in mental health counseling from Antioch University New England and has completed the three-year Clinical Herbal Studies program at Arbor Vitae School of Traditional Herbalism. She has studied flower essences under Claudia Keel, Patricia Kaminski, and David Dalton, as well as Focusing, energetic work, and ancient Egyptian mysticism with healer Jane Bell. You can read more about her practice at moonandbloom.com.

Andrea Frade is a spiritual guide to core creative self-transformation. For her the healing process is a wholesome return to ourselves. Her work is a blend of movement therapy, energy healing and intuitive practice. She is largely influenced by archetypal psychology, the divine feminine, and eastern philosophy. Andrea holds an MFA in Contemporary Art from the Glasgow School of Art and has been teaching and writing about spiritual practice for over 11 years. You can read more about her work at andreafrade.com

Yoga Fundamentals:Winter Series (begins 1/6/2018)


hohnyyogacom_8a9cfa4b

YOGA FUNDAMENTALS:

This Six 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 & 6  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 6 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.
