Beginning January 6, 2020
with kelly heath

Kick of 2020 with 5 Weeks of:

Daily Yoga,  Daily Meditation, Spiritual Reading, Mantra & Mudra, Yogic Breathing.

 

with 40 Days to Live Your Soul Purpose

We will kick off 2020 with a traditional 5 weeks intentional practice (40 day Sadhana) attuning to and harmonizing with our inner GPS system-our soul. Using weekly teleconferences and an online system of postures (asana), breathing (pranayama), chanting and mythology (mantra and deity), hand seals (mudra) and meditation (dyana) we'll discover the deepest call of the soul, really go for what it is to create that in the day to day, open our palms and attempt not to cling on to the results of our actions and make it all an offering. 

 

Week 1 will be rooted in our foundation and what it is to listen to our hearts deepest calling and to give ourselves time and space to really listen. Week 2 will be dedicated to building self trust and holding clear boundaries with ourselves and others. Week 3 is to cultivate strength behind our inner knowing, and then the courage to act and follow through in our lives. Week 4 is a surrender where we get to practice releasing the fruits of our action and practice non attachment with open palms. Week 5 we practice offering it all up because ultimately everything is an offering.

 

Begin 2020 diving into a practice of being true to yourself and aligning with the deepest call of your soul. Conquer fear and insecurity. And plant and nourish seeds that are so indestructible, even fire cannot burn.

FAQs:

Q: How long will the yoga take each day?

A: There will be approximately 30 minutes of asana each day. The mantra, mudra, pranayama will take another 30 minutes each day.

Q: I don't usually practice at home. Where would I do that?

A: Some people find that moving the coffee table a few inches provides enough room for the space of a yoga mat. Others may prefer to have an alter under their bathroom sink and "do" their yoga in there after a steamy shower. And others might simply like to find whatever surface their hands and feet make their way to. 

Q: What if I can't make the weekly kick off teleconferences?

A: Not to worry. This is intended to be an online program, done at your own pace and rhythm. So, the teleconferences will be recorded and posted in the online center with the rest of the resources for this program.

A veteran yoga teacher, mom of 2 boys and kids yoga teacher for 10 years Kelly Heath will teach teachers, parents and anyone who works with children how to bring alive stories through yoga, share breathing techniques, incorporate guided visualizations, and teach postures that do not take more than a few minutes each day.

Yamas and Niyamas

A workshop - taught as part of the CorePower Yoga teacher training or in other single module ways -on ways in which we stay alive in the world without being enslaved to our likes and dislikes.

•Ahimsa – non-harming•Satya – truthfulness, honesty, becoming trustworthy with self and others•Asteya – non-stealing, not taking more than is given•Bramacharya – walking in the way of Brahma, walking with God •Aparigraha - non-grasping; non-clinging; softening the grip

 

Plus, feeling into the observances or seeds we plant inside of the interior garden within ourselves that as we practice we grow this unshakable foundation “No longer being disturbed by the play of opposites”—Patañjali. •Saucha – purity as a cleansing process, gathering scattered pieces up•Santosha – contentment, the paradox of non seeking•Tapas – self discipline, staying power•Svadhyaya – self study, the power of the witness•Ishvara Pranidana – surrender, releasing, engaging, surrender, devotion

 

 

 

The Maha Bhutas  |  5 Elements

In Ayurvedic philosophy (springing forth from the same roots as yoga) are Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. In this 2 day workshop immerse in 5 elements philosophy and practices to bring balance and wholeness through meditation, pranayama, philosophy, mudra, mantra, and asana:

The Earth Element (Prithvi) expresses itself through our connection with our planet, building a firm base of support, to feel grounded and secure, to rest in stability, to concentrate, 1st/Root Chakra.

The Water Element (Apas) expresses itself as the water that flows through our veins, the circulatory system, as we ourselves are mostly water (70%). Water is both flowing action-change and the profound calm and divine consciousness that rests in the stillness below the surface. 2nd/Sacral Chakra, the area where new life is generated. 

The Fire Element (Agni) expresses itself as the light, heat, warmth (tapas) that can be generated through friction/change, and the "will" to go on even when we want to quit. It is the source of light which creates and destroys, symbolizing our soul. 3rd/Solar Plexus Chakra.

The Air Element (Vayu) expresses itself in both the inhale and exhale of the breath, and in creating shifts/changes by carrying life-giving prana throughout the body and the universe. Breath control (pranayama) techniques can be used to strengthen your willpower and steady your mind, 4th/Heart Chakra. 

The Ether Element (Akasha) expresses itself as boundless space. Ethereal, light, airy and spiritual, all elements come from ether. It’s a difficult concept to grasp because it’s an impossible substance to grasp. We begin to feel. To listen. To pause. To explore the spaces in and around our breath and our movements, our hours and our days, our thoughts and our bodies. Consciousness. 5th/Throat Chakra.

When: Sat., Sept. 10 and Sun., Sept. 11; 1-5pm both days
