DECLUTTER YOUR MIND WITH YOGA, MEDIATION + ESSENTIAL OILS Holly Schramm

THURSDAY 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM | JAN 5

Let’s face it, life is messy. It’s common to have too much on our mind, in our closet, on our desk, in our stomach, in the garage…… All this clutter distracts us from our essence, from our soul which is peace, love and joy. Although our soul is unchanging and always there, it’s this other stuff that gets in the way of the freedom to live from our soul. So let’s get down to business and free up some space with slow flow, Yin yoga, Nidra, soul searching and essential oils. We promise this experience will be fun with a few suprises! PRICE: $40 ($35 for Annual Plus Members) | SLP

During this ritual, we will: • Build energy to commit to the present, which absolves the past and reverberates into the future

MOVE WITHOUT PAIN: AN INTRODUCTION TO SOMAYOGA Wendy Brom

SATURDAY 1:30 – 3:30 PM | JAN 21

When muscles become chronically contracted from postural habits, physical and emotional stress, injury and trauma, the body becomes imbalanced. Years of compensating for these imbalances can result in pain in the neck, back, shoulders, hips, knees, etc. Over time, this may lead to many structural and functional problems such as sciatica, scoliosis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel, knee pain, and fatigue. In this workshop you will learn a simple series of safe, natural, and easy movements that, when done regularly, can bring more efficient, coordinated, and pain free physical functioning. You will begin to understand the ways in which your movement and movement habits affect your entire body. Muscles are released, relaxed, and balanced through the use of somatic movements which reeducates muscles and develops new movement patterns. PRICE: $40 ($35 for Annual PLUS Members) | SLP

KUNDALINI YOGA FOR VITALITY Nicole Nardone

SATURDAY 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM | MAR 4

During this time, right before spring, there is a rising energy we can tap into. Though we may be feeling down in the dumps, exhausted, like we can never “catch up”, there is a vitality beneath the surface that we can hook into to energize our days and lives. Vitality is your essential life force. For many reasons, we can become cut off from our vitality. This sense of separation can feel like physical fatigue, lethargy, apathy, loss of zest for life, or depression. In this workshop, we’ll practice kriyas and meditations designed to open that flow of vitality once again. This practice is deeply healing and restorative for the nervous system, balancing for the glandular system, and brings a sense of clarity and calm to the mind. When we are plugged into that Infinite source of vitality, life flows. We have the energy to live our lives, we feel a renewed sense of JOY. This is how we were made to live.

The Science of Ayurveda

March 13th, 2017 - May 1st, 2017 Price: $700

The Science of Ayurveda

Originating from the Hindu Vedic tradition nearly 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda states that a balance of three elemental substances, the Doshas, equals health while imbalance equals disease. There are three Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. One Ayurvedic theory states that each human possesses a unique combination of these Doshas which define this person’s temperament and characteristics. Each person has a natural state, or natural combination of these three elements, and should seek balance by modulating their behavior or environment. In this module, you will explore Ayurvedic Science and take an in-depth look at the Doshas, work with diagnostic techniques and Ayurvedic practices for overall health and well-being.

yogacentermpls.com | 612-436-4700

“Taking part in the 300Hour training has caused some radically positive shifts in my teaching, and my life. I’ve learned that yoga is a big, bold, patchwork quilt. Each teacher, each sutra, each pranayama, each pose, each chant, each meditation is a thread and if you’re looking to take your teaching to the next level, you must learn how they all weave together, and complement one another. This was my biggest take-away from the program: Betsy Weiner, Kevin Kortan, and Tara Cindy Sherman were incredible mentors, who shared generously the bounty of their knowledge and experience.”
