Spring Yoga & Qigong Workshop

With Yongin Kim and Cheri Moran

Fee: $30 preregistered; $35 drop-in

Spring is when new energy, new life and new dreams blossom as we move out of the colder "yin" months of winter, and the warmer "yang" energy starts expanding and growing. Combining yoga with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this workshop will guide the practitioner to align with the natural cycle and flow of life through a balanced practice of asanas, and qigong movements for the organ systems, also known as "acupuncture without the needles." Spring is associated with the wood element in TCM, and is connected to the organs and meridians of the liver and gall bladder. We will practice yoga asanas that will target the muscles and connective tissues along the liver and gall bladder meridians, and also explore organ cleansing qigong movements, organ massage, and sound therapy using Tibetan singing bowls that will help with the process of detoxification, purification, digestion, and the energy of expansion.

All levels of yoga and qigong are welcome. Reserve a spot with Jan at bodygrace@verizon.net by Saturday, April 7.

Instructors: YongIn Kim - is a certified instructor of the "Zhang Fu Gong" organ cleansing qigong form and has studied with Francesco Garripolli and Daisy Lee. She has also studied and participated in workshops with Matt Hayat, Keith Harrington, Pauline Reid, Master Li Jun Feng, and Bruce Frantzis. YongIn has also been a student of yoga and meditation for over 15 years and hopes that her yoga/qigong workshops will promote balance, joy and well-being in all practitioners.

Cheri Moran has a strong foundation in body alignment and sequencing of yoga postures, developed through years of practicing many styles of yoga. Cheri completed a 200-hour Vinyasa yoga teacher training and is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with the Yoga Alliance. In addition to group classes and workshops, she teaches personalized one-on-one private yoga sessions. To learn more about Cheri, visit www.CheriMoran.com.

Yoga Nidra and the Art of Conscious Relaxation

With Carolyn Bagdoyan

Fee: $20 pre-registered; $25 drop-in

Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice that takes people into a state of deep relaxation through a guided meditative process and conscious visualization.  Also known as yogic sleep, the practice gives rest to the mind, body and senses by drawing the practitioner into a state of conscious awareness—a brain state between full wakefulness and full sleep.  This practice has been linked with reducing stress, tension and pain; improving circulation and immune functioning; lowering blood pressure and inflammation; and stabilizing mood.

Carolyn Bagdoyan is certified in Dr. Marc Halpern’s Yoga Nidra and Self-Healing. Yoga Nidra is generally practiced while lying down or in a seated position. For your comfort, please bring a pillow and wear comfortable clothing and arrive 15 minutes before class start.  Mats and blankets are available at the studio or feel free to bring your own.

Please RSVP to reserve a spot with Jan at bodygrace@verizon.net by Saturday, Feb. 10 to receive the pre-registered price.
