Aadil-Yoga-Seattle

About this Event:

 July 19   @6:30pm-8pm: Living the Eight Limbs of Purna Yoga-Lecture
The Limbs of yoga prescribe a system, developed and tested through millenia — for the discovery and emergence of our true selves. They begin with ethical precepts (yama and niyama, then build on the awakening of the body (asana) and breath (pranayama).  By practicing asana with awareness, as we free the body, we progressively master and free the mind as well.  This process of reclaiming our inner selves continues in the more advanced limbs of Yoga: pratyahara (sense-withdrawal), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and ultimately, samadhi (communion with the Self).

July 20  @9am-12:00pm: Sweat & Glow – A Purna Yoga Practice to Detox & Enliven The Body
The beauty of the Purna Yoga Power Series is the smooth, flowing movements coordinated with the breath with a thoughtfully arranged set of poses designed to cultivate external strength and internal power.  The Series will require intense focus and a willingness to grow and change.  The Series will help remove blockages both internally and externally.  Prepare to work deeply and rest deeply afterwards.

July 20  @12:30pm-3:30pm: Wrists and Carpal Tunnel Problems Be Gone
It is no surprise that the American Medical Association recognizes yoga as a resolution for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  In this class you will learn the underlying causes of arm and wrist pain, starting from the spine all the way to the fingertips.  Discover sequences for opening the shoulders, elbows, and wrists, as well as Aadil’s unique methodology for strengthening these three joints.

July 21 @12:30pm-3:30pm: Twists and Shavasana in Purna Yoga
Done correctly, twists cultivate shaktiand channel the upward flow of energy. In Purna Yoga, twists are used to release emotional blockages in the body and free tension in the intervertebral muscles along the spine. Twists help liberate the body so that the energy that is dormant in the pelvis can rise to the heart.  Aadil will teach how to twist from the root upward, from simple twists to deep ones. Then with all your emotions cleansed you will do a deep and powerful Shavasana based on the five senses.

Dates: Jul. 19th – Jul. 20th

Instructor: Aadil Palkhivala

Cost: $25–$275

Whole life yoga logo

About this Event: Yoga Nidra is a method of guided relaxation that has a profound effect on the body, mind, and emotions. During the practice, you will lie in a comfortable position where you can remain awake and relaxed. You will be guided through various stages of deeper relaxation as you focus your attention inward.
During Yoga Nidra, you will enter the state between wakefulness and dreaming – a state which we usually only experience as we nod off to sleep. The effect on the mind can be very powerful, because as the mind becomes more relaxed, it also becomes more receptive.
This practice can aid in memory retention, reduce stress, and enhance both your intuition and creativity. It can help you to solve problems, rejuvenate your body and mind, and enhance and balance your energy.
Each Nidra session begins with 20 minutes of gentle movement to prepare the body, mind, and heart for the deeper states of meditative practice.

The Radiance of Life a Kundalini Evening-Guru Gayatri

About this Event: Join Master Teacher Guru Singh for an inspiring and uplifting Workshop.
This event is a fundraiser for Guru Gayatri Kundalini Yoga and Meditation Center, a non-profit Washington State organization ($45 Suggested Pre-Registration Donation Price).
According to the ancient teachings of Kundalini yoga — Ease, Joy, Knowing and Liberation — are the four qualities of human life…physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. When Yogi Bhajan said that, “Happiness is your birthright” he referred to these foundational qualities. He also said that these are “unreasonable qualities” and therefore they cannot be argued with…there’s no reason that will disrupt their presence.  This class will deliver this attitude.
The word yoga means union. Yoga practice creates a bridge between our physical reality and the spiritual realm. Kundalini Yoga—the “yoga of awareness”—uses this connection to awaken human consciousness to its highest potential.
Embark upon a joy-filled, inspiring, enlightened, and stimulating journey of Kundalini Yoga with master teacher Guru Singh. Learn to use the ancient technologies of Kundalini Yoga to align body, mind, and spirit, accessing a pathway to long-lasting joy, ease, peace, and calm. By consistently practicing yoga asanas and kriyas, conscious breath, meditations, and chanting, we can reach this transformed state of consciousness.

Yoga Nidra, Yoga Bliss Workshop with Tracy Hodgeman

About this Event: The monthly Yoga Nidra, Yoga Bliss workshop is a potently relaxing combination of self-massage followed by Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep). Self-massage is an empowering and effective method for decreasing chronic patterns of tension-holding in the body. Less tension = improved circulation, less pain, more oxygen, increased freedom of movement (including the life-giving movement of the breath) and a greater sense of wellbeing.
Yoga Nidra is a systematic process of deepening relaxation– an internal, meditative yoga that happens while your body is completely supported and still. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is more restful than four hours of normal sleep! When we remove stressors, the body relaxes and the immune system can function more efficiently. Vitality and vibrant health are supported. We have more energy to do the things we want to do! Another key element of this practice is the combination of relaxation with Sankalpa. A Sankalpa is a positive statement or intention that invites us to transform our lives, our very beings, as we look inside and ask ourselves the question “what does my heart desire?” This is such an important question to ask, and to ask often. When coupled with relaxation, an intention can sink deep into our subconscious, where the secret to lasting sustainable change resides.

Dates & Time: Aug. 11th & Sep. 8th @12:15pm – 2pm

The combination of the healing effects of the SoMat and the soothing sounds of Sound Bath will offer you a deeply rejuvenating hour, not unlike the benefits of a massage.
Using the vibrational qualities of sound, Megan will use crystal singing bowls to help release energy that is no longer needed and move you into a deeper state of healing and relaxation. Chiara will introduce the SoMat–a specially designed self-care tool crafted in Italy and finding its way to the U.S. The SoMat promotes alignment and relieves deeply-held stress as the spine decompresses, thinking slows and your nervous system settles down.

Date & Time: Sep. 20th @6:15pm – 7:30pm

Instructors: Megan Sloan & Chiara Guerrieri

Cost: $30

About this Event: The fall equinox marks the beginning of a slowing down in nature and encourages us to embrace a more internal, reflective state of being. This transitional season from late summer to early fall is represented by the element of earth, which when in balance we feel nourished, supported, centered and at ease in our bodies and our relationships. When out of balance, we may feel worried, anxious and ungrounded and this can manifest in the body/mind as compulsiveness and an inability to find a healthy balance between giving and receiving in our relationships.
In his book, ‘The Way of the Five Seasons’, John Kirkwood says “When earth energies are balanced, there is a natural recognition of the abundance the universe offers us, from the bounty and the beauty of nature, to the love and connection with others, to the simple fact of being alive.”
This practice will incorporate wisdom from Chinese medicine theory and stimulate the meridian lines associated with the stomach (how to nourish yourdelf through all that you take in) and spleen (transformation of what you take in into Qi, your vital energy and life force). This is an opportunity slow down, embrace the changing seasons and find harmony and flow in your life.
