Embodying Grace
Saturday, October 5, 12:30-3:00pm
Asana (yoga posture) can be an entry point into an realized state of being. This workshop invites us to come home, to feel, to honor and receive the gifts of being, to experience and embody Grace.Tracking sensation, emotion and thought, we infuse the body with awareness and breath. When we clear stagnant energy, we unravel and create space within.
Within the depth of practice we will cultivate a refuge within the core of now and open ourselves to a tangible experience of the force that breathes us alive, Grace.
All levels welcome. Space in this class is limited to 18, register early to reserve your spot!

This work nourishes intimacy with self and cultivates a quality of receptivity and acceptance. All levels welcome.

Smart Ass Dumb Ass Finding and Strengthening the Gluteus Musclesseattle yoga arts

About this Event: Do you tightly grip your butt muscles with all of your might in yoga poses or is there a “lazy ass” you may not be aware of? The gluteal group of muscles consists of 3 muscles: Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius and Gluteus Minimus.
“Gluteus” is Greek for rump. How the rump works in yoga poses can affect change in the hip socket, where the sacrum sits, how the legs work, and how you experience the pose. This workshop was so well received at the Yoga Journal conference that they wrote an article inspired by it in the March 2015 issue. Leslie developed it as an extension of her work with the pelvic floor after noticing how many yogis/yoginis were not using their buttocks muscles properly.
This workshop will give you a deeper understanding of the anatomy used in standing poses and hip opening poses. As a result you will experience familiar poses in an unfamiliar way.

Skill in Action Workshops With Michelle Johnson - 8 limbs
8 Limbs yoga-logo

About this Event: 

Dismantling Racism – for  Yogis, Activists, Change Makers, Healers, Helpers (Friday 1:30-5:30)
Michelle Johnson, anti-racism trainer, yogi, and activist will lead participants through a Dismantling Racism workshop focused on understanding systems of power, privilege, and oppression.
If you are experiencing overwhelm, confusion, or despair about the current cultural context and you want to better understand how race was constructed and the impact of white supremacy on us all join Michelle for this workshop.

The dismantling racism workshop includes:
  Embodied practice (breath work and some movement)
 Storytelling based on our life experience
 A look at personal, cultural, and institutional racism
 A history of the race construct
You will leave with a shared language and framework to better understand personal, institutional and cultural racism. CEUs available for social workers and yoga teachers.

Skill in Action – All are welcome (Sunday 1:00-4:00pm)
Skill in Action is a workshop designed to explore patterns of oppression, power and privilege, and to respond to the current cultural challenges through practices of self-study, contemplation and collective action. In this workshop, you will deepen your understanding of the principles of justice and yoga; the workings of power and privilege, oppression and identity, suffering and liberation, and loving kindness.
The most effective tool of White Supremacy is divide and conquer. This system of oppression causes us to distance from ourselves and others, leaving us split apart both individually and collectively. Dismantling White Supremacy and systems of oppression requires turning towards, and facing one another. Through sharing and conversation you will explore the ways White Supremacy and oppression become internalized, and how we, in turn, embody and perpetuate oppression individually and collectively.

Date & Time: Dec. 13th @1:30pm-5:30

Instructor: Michelle Johnson

Cost: $70
