Double Touch with Ginger & Rachael
Sep 27, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm| $45
Rae is back in town from NYC and it’s time for that Double Touch! Treat yourself to a relaxing four hands on you at once – “the double touch” restorative experience with Ginger & Rae. Take the time for some self-care, physically and emotionally.
This workshop is 90 minutes of moving meditation: a slow flow that alternates between gentle movements and stillness. Each restorative posture holds enough time to receive grounding touches by Ginger and Rae simultaneously, and the focus on the breath through a few simple pranayama encourages restoration and awareness. Four hands on you is better than two! And it’s followed by cozy bevvies and treats- what more does your weekend need?
Time: 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
About the instructors: Ginger Saunders and Rachael Helsel
Ginger discovered her Yoga practice nine years ago, when in 2006, she started volunteering for Yogahope, an organization which provides yoga for women in rehabilitation programs at the Genesis House in Seattle. Shortly after, she attended teacher training classes with Bob Smith and Ki McGraw at the Hatha Yoga Center. After a year, she joined Bob and Ki to their annual intensive teacher training in Bali, where she received her 200 hour registered yoga teacher certificate. Ginger’s style of teaching is a unique blend of all the classes and training she has ever attended. From restorative gentle soothing hands-on yoga, effortlessly moving in a meditative flow, to deep edge-riding power vinyasa yoga, strengthening your true inner core. Her intention as a yoga teacher is to create space in your body for your inner teacher to shine through, so you can be. breathe. practice.
I found yoga when I was going through chemo for stage tree melanoma. In the midst of the chaos of surgery and treatment, it was the frst time I experienced a release from the anxiety in my body and my mind through deep breathing and gentle movements. I was hooked.
As I recovered I continued to practice, study, and train, and I loved the way that it brought more balance not just to my body, but also my life. My practice began to alternate between vigorous flaw and grounding restoratives, and these continue to be my favorite classes to teach because of the way that they have helped me heal and shift my perspective.
My intention when I teach is to hold space for my students through music, movement, and body awareness so that they can come futrther into THEIR practice. I’m fascinated by the scientific arctitecture of yoga and always by to weave that in throughout a creative sequence of asana, pranayama, and hands-on assists.
When I’m not on my mat, I like to be behind my camera, out in the mountains, or anywhere cozy with a mocha.
