Kids Yoga Ages 4-10

with Vannessa Neubauer, RYT 200

With all the stimulation kids have in their lives these days, it's no wonder neurological disorders such as ADD and ADHD are on the rise.
Yoga has been shown to help both kids and adults settle the nervous system and have better focus. By incorporating breathing techniques, physical exercise and concentration, your child or children will be encouraged to calm down, relax, focus, and most importantly, have fun!
In kids yoga, traditional yoga postures (asanas) are given a fun spin, often given animal names, movements and sounds that mimic the animal to keep the kids engaged and having fun while they learn vital techniques to self-regulate that they can take with them into adulthood.

We will be offering two 5 weeks courses with 2 weekly 45 minute classes meeting Tuesdays and Fridays at 3:30.
First course: June 11 - July 19
Second course: July 30 - August 30

Cost is $80 per child for each 5 week course and must be paid prior to the start of each course.

Ages 4-10

Vannessa Neubauer, RYT 200

Vannessa graduated Yoga Hohm's teacher training program in February of 2019. She taught an education extension alternative for childcare for 10 years to 4 and 5 year olds during the school year, and ages k-12 in the summer, and was a parent advocate for children with special needs for 5 years.

Yoga Nidra - the Yoga of Deep Rest

with Jenna Steep

This beginner-friendly class will introduce attendees to the practice and process of yoga nidra. We will briefly explore yoga nidra’s history, therapeutic applications of it as well as it’s place in the world today.
Participants will then be invited to make themselves a comfy cozy nest with pillows, bolsters, blankets and support in order to rest comfortably and meet directly the openness of awareness which is yoga nidra.
Students will be guided through a 25-30 minute practice of yoga nidra which may include elements of mantra, song and visualization.
The final 10-15 minutes of the evening will be used as a “bridge” welcoming practitioners back from the expanded state of consciousness which is yoga nidra, back into an everyday state of awareness. It may include recitation of mantra, poetry or some other evocative form of expression, and will close with a sung blessing for all in attendance.

Ayurveda - Science of Life

to Sep 15

Ayurveda - Science of Life

Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science, is an ancient Indian system of health and healing over 5000 years old. The Sanskrit word Ayurveda literally means “life science” or “science of life.” Ayurveda states that each individual is born with his or her very unique mind-body constitution made up of three doshas, or subtle energies. By understanding one's own constitution, practitioners can develop seasonal, short term and long term practices to bring health and balance to one’s being and even cure dis-ease using specific foods, herbs, lifestyle, meditation, pranayama, asana, and more.
Join us for two days of diving deep into this very complex yet easily utilized ancient art. Bring pen and paper for lots of note taking!
Renee has been studying Ayurveda since 2011. From the very first introduction, she felt that Ayurveda was the personalized system of health she had been searching for her entire life. She finds that Ayurveda is the perfect complement to her yoga practice for naturally easing anxiety, managing chronic pain and getting through Wisconsin’s seasons with less illness. Renee incorporates Ayurveda into her daily life and enjoys educating others on how to do the same.

Teachers: This course counts as 12 contact hours with the Yoga Alliance.

How to  Move Your Asana: Standing Hip Openers
Jul
20
12:00 PM12:00

How to Move Your Asana: Standing Hip Openers

This is a series of workshops designed to give you a better understanding of the poses and sequences offered in asana (asana means pose) classes. Poses will be broken down to understand musculoskeletal anatomy – which muscles should be contracting and which should be lengthening, which joints should be involved and which should not, which direction body parts should be moving or not moving and why, and so on. You will also learn about the benefits and contraindications for each pose, and modifications will be given for individual needs. Plus, you will be able to apply the knowledge you obtain to many other similar poses not covered in the workshop.

In this particular workshop we will focus on standing "hip openers," or standing poses in which one or both hips are externally rotated (examples include Warrior 2, Extended Side Angle, Triangle, Tree, Garland). Learn benefits, contraindications and modifications for the poses and what not to do in them. Understand why it is so important that the hip opening comes from the hips and not the knees. We will conclude with "counter poses" to release the muscles that will be used the most in this workshop.

Each 2 hour workshop will include warm up, discussion, practice and Q&A. Participants will be emailed handouts to use during the workshops. You can choose to print them or be eco-friendly and view them on your electronic devices.

A regular practice is recommended for this series of workshops however it is not required for most of them, with the exception of Arm Balances and Inversions. Students will be expected to have a general understanding of sun salutations as they will be used to warm up. Come dressed to move and bring pen and paper if you'd like to take notes. 

Yoga teachers: This workshop counts as 2 contact hours with the Yoga Alliance.

Yoga for the Pelvic Floor
Apr

12:00 PM12:00

Yoga for the Pelvic Floor

Every person of every age has a pelvic floor. This diamond-shaped set of muscles lies at the base of the torso and supports our internal organs. If these muscles are either too tight or too weak, we can experience problems with digestion, elimination, and/or sexual functioning.

This workshop will help you understand why pelvic floor health matters and how to maintain optimal pelvic floor health. Participants will engage in specific practices to access, tone and stretch their pelvic floor muscles. Reference materials for use after the workshop will be provided. This workshop is open to anyone age 16 and over; wear comfortable loose clothing and bring a yoga mat.

This workshop is suitable for men and women.

Cindy Conlon has over 500 hours of yoga teacher training (White Lotus in Santa Barbara, CA, and Yogaview in Chicago,IL)

and has studied with Leslie Howard, the author of Pelvic Liberation and a national expert in pelvic floor health. Leslie has developed Pelvic Floor Yoga, a program that aims to normalize the conversation around pelvic wellness.

This workshop will draw on Leslie’s insights as well as Cindy’s experience and knowledge, introducing the key yoga postures and breathing techniques that awaken and heal the muscles around the pelvis.
