Mamalates
with Rachel Brinker
Next: Jan 4, 2019
at 9:30 am

This enrollment runs from Fri Jan 4, 2019 - Fri Feb 8, 2019
Before starting any other fitness program, mamalates is the essential first step to reclaiming strength and stability in your core after having a baby. Designed specifically for women six weeks postpartum and beyond, this 6-week progressive workshop is safe and beneficial for c-section recovery, abdominal separation (diastasis recti), and many common pelvic floor issues. With a focus on biomechanics and alignment, Rachel's mamalates classes will lead you to a deeper connection with your postpartum body as well as a greater ease and stability in the everyday movements of mothering. Babies are welcome to join you during class (pre-mobile babies only, please). Even if it's been months or years since giving birth, mamalates can help you restore optimal alignment and core stability. Women only, please.

The Heart of Yoga: Contemplative Immersion
with Katelin Gallagher
Next: Jan 12, 2019
at 12:00 pm

The Heart of Yoga: Contemplative Immersion & Yoga Sutra Study Course
 
A unique, six module intensive for those who are looking for an inspiring, structured meditation and contemplative yogic training that builds session to session. This immersion can be enrolled in separately or as a segment of Live Well’s 200-hr (RYS) Yoga Teacher Training Program.

Live Well Studio’s 2019 contemplative immersion program is for serious seekers, yogis, meditators and curious philosophers alike. Our three months of deep study together will follow a rich, sophisticated yogic curriculum and include deepening or progressive meditative practice, philosophical inquiry, postural practice, yogic techniques, community, and dialogue guided primarily by the classical yogic text: The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
 
The weekend-based, 6-module program is designed to investigate embodied contemplative and meditative practice sequentially, beginning with foundations and building gradually to the deeper, dialectical, more esoteric yogic teachings. The immersion includes silent retreat weekends and culminates in a module called "Embodying Love," which is an exploration of contemplative practice off the cushion/yoga mat.
 
The flavor of the weekends will be influenced by the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism and our Patanjali Yoga source text, yet the practices will be held in a greater context of modern, Western, integral spirituality. Clear pathways will be carved by our time together, but each practitioner will weave his or her own journey. Participants will become steeped in practice and methodology, understanding not just the “how” but also the “why.” Entry by application. Led by philosopher, yogi and meditator, Katelin Gallagher.

Jan 12-13 The Yogis Path: Learning the Landscape

Jan 26-27 The Heart of Mindful Self-Compassion

Yoga and Movement Techniques for Trauma and the Traumatized: A workshop for movement teachers
with L. Eleanor Wells
Next: Jan 18, 2019
at 7:00 pm

This enrollment runs from Fri Jan 18, 2019 - Sat Jan 19, 2019
Each of us carries not only the trauma of our current lives, but the trauma of our ancestors in our flesh, cells and dna. Trauma is a trigger that sets us up for health dysfunction, from PTSD, to sleep disorders, mood disorders, addictions, digestive disorders, pain, high blood pressure, copd, diabetes, auto-immune disorders, and probably even certain cancers. Dealing with the physical side of trauma can quickly improve physical and mental health. In this workshop we will review how trauma impacts the body, how it is stored in the body, and learn a variety of movement, breath and meditation techniques that ease trauma's symptoms and long term impacts. We will also review teaching language and pedagogy so that we can create classroom environments conducive to the healing of trauma and avoid triggering clients.
 
Prerequisite: Any prior certification as a movement or fitness teacher or coach.

Friday 1/18, 7-9p
Saturday 1/19, 1-5p
Early Bird $75 until 1/12, $99 thereafter

Letting go of Anger and Fear: Kundalini Yoga
with Angee Ajeet Seva Kaur
Next: Feb 16, 2019
at 2:00 pm

Come and experience the transformational power of Kundalini Yoga. Anger in our bodies creates tension patterns that create neural patterns of holding. These patterns over time create hypertension, habitual physical low back pain, imbalances in our endocrine system and a weak nervous system.
 
I have heard it said “that fear is a evil and corroding thread”. Freedom from fear allows for there to be flow, connectivity and creativity. We are meant to shine in the sunlight of our true Self.
 
This sequence of postures or Kriya is designed to rewire neural pathways, strengthen our nervous and glandular system. Anger transformed into creativity opens energy channels and brings forward new beginnings and inspiration. We will end practice with a deep restorative savasana with gong and crystal bowl tension release.
