Have ongoing physical limitations?
Cannot get down or up from the floor?
Want to start a yoga practice but would like a gentler entry into the world of yoga?
Have had a mat practice, yet sustained an injury and would like to continue in an appropriate yoga practice while they are recovering?
Used as a prop in a chair yoga class, the chair supports the body in seated and standing postures to find safe alignment as we journey towards better flexibility, stamina, posture, strength and peace of mind.

During this two day training we will cover:
- Special considerations when working with the chair to support healthy alignment.
- Pranayama and its importance in any yoga practice.
- Physical yoga postures using the chair as support while sitting as well as standing.
- The use of different types of alignment cues to support varied learners.
- Sequencing for chair yoga.
- And more!!

With Kristen Orsini, RYT, RMT, Certified Ageless Grace® Educator

Kristen has been working with seniors and those needing physical supports since 2011. She studied chair yoga with Lore Kent from Lore Kent's Long Island Chair Yoga and
received her 200 Hour Refined Flow Yoga Teacher Training from Absolute Yoga. She is a Certified Ageless Grace® Educator, facilitating the "21 simple tools for lifelong comfort and ease™" that teacher and Ageless Grace® founder Denise Medved created toward her goal of changing the way people view aging in America. Kristen loves watching the improving postures and physical alignment of her regular yoga students and adores even more the stories they share about how they have taken their yoga off the mat and out of the chair, finding more joy, awareness and connection in their lives.

Tuition: $285. A manual will be provided and certificate to be presented upon completion of the weekend.

Autumnal Equinox Mala-Making Workshop with Maria Renna Thu, Sep 27, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“Autumn ... the year’s last, loveliest smile.” – William C. Bryant

Fall is a season for balancing light and dark, letting go, and accepting the impermanence of things.
The Autumnal Equinox is a time of harvest, transition, release and gratitude – giving thanks for all the abundance the previous months have brought while beckoning us to prepare emotionally and physically for what is to come. It is a time to find balance and clarity and, as the cooler weather invites us inside, the change of seasons reminds us of the quiet, restorative, introspective months to follow.
Let’s celebrate this season of harvest and growth while creating a sacred MALA necklace which will serve as a reminder of this abundant season. We will be using gemstones associated with Autumn – think colors of the earth and leaves! Come create with the grounding energies of RED JASPER, GARNET, and CARNELIAN; attract abundance and bounty with MOSS AGATE, and AVENTURINE; celebrate growth and change with DENDRITIC AGATE (tree agate), invite clarity with FLUORITE ... and more. Before stringing our malas, we will begin with a sweet meditation focused on the beauty of the Fall months ahead!
If possible, register in advance and reserve your choice.
$100 investment includes all material, instruction & meditation.

This enrollment runs from Sat Nov 17, 2018 - Sun Nov 18, 2018
Translating the Practice of Yoga into a Language Kids Understand and Enjoy

Our Tween Yoga training targets a narrow age range between 9 and 13 years old, and is designed to guide participants in how to leverage yoga to bridge the gap between "child" and "teenager." This training begins by covering techniques associated with teaching asanas to this age group, and pose variations that are best suitable to a Tween’s changing body. The training discusses pranayama and meditation at length and how both tools can help mitigate stress and anxiety and promote healthy self-regulation. This 12 hour training is designed to deconstruct yogic concepts and philosophies and translate them into concepts and activities that are relatable to Tweens in order to support their everyday life. You will leave feeling inspired and empowered to bring yoga to this impressionable and sensitive age group.

200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training
