The Spring Equinox signals new beginnings and nature’s renewal. We are being reborn as we emerge from out Winter sleep as this is a point of union and balance poised between opposite forces. Light and dark, sun and moon, receptive and active.
It is an excellent time for transformation, ridding ourselves of old patterns and energies that no longer serve us and manifestation.

Join Sound Goddesses Jennifer Vagios + Colleen Torpie as they guide you through a unique journey of orchestrated sacred sounds.

You will be led through a sound “experience” that will be the ultimate journey for your mind, body, spirit and senses. We will start with brief discussion, setting intentions and possibly a few gentle stretches just to open the body up.

You will then lie down and be serenaded by a unique blend of sounds using gongs, singing bowls, vocal tones, and more.

The benefits of Sound Bath are endless.

*Note: No yoga experience necessary. You may lie down or sit up during the event.
This is not a yoga class.
**However, some gentle movements might be incorporated.
**Palo Santo and Incense will be used.

Expect the ultimate restorative and blissful experience.

A traditional system of yoga based on the eight limbs of Patanjali created by Pattahbi Jois

Ashtanga was one of the first yoga practices to reach Western culture in the 70s. It’s a vigorous sequential style flow that involves synchronized breathing along with progressive postures to stoke internal heat and detoxify the body.

Within the system are several series, each with a different focus promoting expansion through discipline, mindfulness and breath — meaning growth occurs when you continuously show up for yourself. Even with its challenging nature, at the core of Ashtanga is yoga chikitsa, or yoga therapy. The heat we create helps purify the body in turn bringing more mental clarity. This age-old discipline helps us to restore and maintain a healthy, balanced life from the inside out — and it doesn’t hurt that it makes you strong and grounded along the way.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Our goal in this two hour workshop is to learn how to properly engage in breath initiated movement (vinyasa), experience a gradual mix of Primary + Second Series poses to build our agni (digestive fire), and develop a deeper mind body connection.

We will begin with a brief introduction to Ashtanga, down to the roots. As a group, we will then perform Ujjayi pranayama to get our mind + body in sync.

Following our breath work, we will start to move our bodies with a more liberal Ashtanga practice — keeping our breath count and sequence traditional while leaving room for modifications and moving carefully into a few Second Series poses halfway through Primary Series. Primary Series is all about learning how to ground and build strength while Second Series is all about supporting the nervous system with strength and backbends. This will serve as an exciting lens to see the potential within the practice and how to navigate movement safely.

We’ll end with a long savasana and time for discussions/questions!

Perfect for beginners looking to understand the building blocks of a flowing vinyasa yoga class, as well as for experienced practitioners looking to deepen their understanding of proper alignment and breath pacing in their practice.

The series will walk students carefully through the building blocks of a full vinyasa class in four installments.

Class 1 begins with a presentation of ujayii pranayama, or the “victorious breath” used in vinyasa yoga, followed by warm up

Class 2  will briefly review the first class’s elements and then focus on several standing poses such as the Warrior poses, side angles, and some standing balance poses.

Class 3 will include a review of the first two classes, and then explore forward bends and twists.

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

We will also look at the flow of sun salutations, which is the basis of vinyasa.

Upon completion students are ready for our level 1, level 1/2 and mixed/all level 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.
