SATSANG : MANTRA JAPA Special Event
with Elizabeth Gonzalez
120.00 minutes
$20.00
*Sliding Scale $20-45* Mantra Japa is the ancient yoga practice of allowing the energy of the mind to dissolve into the subtle vibrations of the mantra and into the SELF. In this 2 hour satsang we will explore: •WHAT IS MANTRA JAPA and the transcendent power of this yogic practice supported by material gathered from yoga scriptures and sages. • The mental tracks that are constantly playing in our minds and how they affect our inner state. • The possibility of replacing the on going inner chatter inside our heads with the transcendent power of the mantra. We will engage with the ancient practices of chanting and mantra japa as a way to enter the SELF in meditation and enjoy a sharing session to reflect on our unique experience of mantra repetition.
About the teacher
Cuando Elizabeth González se intereso por la Yoga solo conocía los beneficios físicos de la práctica, pero más tarde aprendió un poco mas acerca de los cánticos, ejercicios de respiración (pranayama), la meditación y la filosofía del yoga en general. Durante su entrenamiento de 200 horas de yoga en Laughing Lotus, ella fue inspirada por sus maestros para llevar una práctica de meditación y yoga regular. Esto marco el principio de una travesia extraordinaria al mundo interno. Despues de practicar y aprender diferentes estilos de yoga, Elizabeth probo su primera clase de Anusara yoga en Ecuador. Ella se enamoro de la filosofia afirmativa de Anusara y de los principios universales de alineamiento que crearon un nivel de profundidad y complejidad que nunca habia experimentado antes. Ella finalizo su entrenamiento de 200hr de Anusara yoga y un entrenamiento para ensenar yoga para ninos en el 2013. Ella crea secuencias que permiten que el cuerpo fluya libremente de una pose a la otra, permitiendo que la respiración se convierta en el puente entre el cuerpo y la mente, y de esta forma enfocando la practica en el aquí y el ahora. Sus clases son una positiva celebración de la vida y ella se inspira en la simplicidad de la vida y la grandeza del alma humana. Ella anima a sus estudiantes a conectarse con los ritmos naturales del cuerpo, prestando atención. y cuidado al alineamiento fisico, permitiendo que las posturas sean una expresion de la energia del corazón. Ella invita a sus estudiantes a experiementar la fuente de la verdad, la consciencia y la felicidad dentro de ellos mismos. Elizabeth Gonzalez was first drawn to Yoga for the physical benefits of the practice; soon after she learned about chanting, pranayama, meditation and the yoga philosophy as a whole. During her first 200 hour yoga training at Laughing Lotus, she was inspired by her teachers to develop her own daily meditation and yoga practices. She now develops sequences that allow the body to flow freely from one pose to the next. She aspires to create a deep connection between the movement and the breath, allowing the breath to become the bridge between the body and the thinking mind; bringing the practice of yoga to the here and now. Her classes are a joyful celebration of living and she draws her inspiration from the simplicity of life and the greatness of the human soul.

Breathwork for Fear and Anxiety Special Event
with Regina
120.00 minutes
$32.00
Sliding Scale *$30-45. What is your reaction to fear? What are the fears that hold you back from being the best version of yourself? Would you take the time if it were available to work through your fears and anxiety in order to remove the blocks that hold you back in life? Much of what we fear is stored in the body never to be released. Some fears are very real and need to be acknowledged while other sources of fear are made up and what we use to hold us back from living our lives to the fullest. The practice of deep breathing has many names and dates back thousands of years but despite its varying identities its one true purpose is to free the body of stored fears, traumas, hurts and outdated stories that we tell ourselves. Thisbreathwork for fear and anxiety will give you a space to breathe deeply, release fears and anxiety that are no longer needed and enable the body to heal and transform fears into self-love and determination. We will begin with a short grounding meditation followed by an hour of deeply transformative breathwork. All are welcome, no experience required except for an open mind and heart. Wear comfortable clothing (we will be lying down on yoga mats for the breathing portion of the workshop). Some eye pillows will be provided but feel free to bring your own.
