Create Spaciousness Within: A New Years Day Practice with Jenna Buckley
January 1 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm| $35
The New Year can be an exciting time full of opportunity, inspiration and change. Often the pressure and expectation to meet grandiose goals can feel like setting oneself up for failure, right out of the gate. This year, let’s begin by deepening the connection to self through meditation, movement, breath, and contemplation. In this workshop, we will learn to create spaciousness, and become more at ease in a world that is noisy, reactive, and demands discernment at a moments notice.
Begin 2020 in community! Join Jenna & friends for a strong vinyasa flow, some inner quiet practice, and reflection.
Date & Time:
- Jan 1st, 2020
- 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM
About the instructor: Jenna Buckley
“I discovered yoga at the gym and via DVD’s (I know, crazy right?) in 2004 while living in San Diego. I moved to Seattle in 2006 and practiced yoga at various places until I landed at Spira Power Yoga in 2014. I completed Spira Power Yoga’s 200-hr & 500-hr teacher training program in 2018. I am currently enrolled in my second 500hr certification with Amy Ippoliti and the 90Monkeys school based out of Boulder, CO.
When I began my journey in teacher training my goal upon graduating was to bring yoga into the corporate environment. Having worked as a Recruiter in the advertising industry for a decade I know first hand how stressful, fast paced, and that a 10-12 hour day is an average work day. I believe that offering yoga in the work place is an amazing gift to give employees and serves as a way to take a break from the stressful demands, and instead, breathe. This will ultimately increase productivity for the rest of the day.
As a practitioner, I love a challenging yet modified practice to keep my body, mind, and spirit healthy and strong as I work through low back/neck injuries, and at times anxious thoughts and grey moods. I find that yoga is the one constant form of movement that allows me to be in-tune with what my body needs. Although I love working up a sweat, I find that yoga is most beneficial for my mind – the practice allows me to let go of my often over-analytical thoughts and allows me to just be on my mat, quieting the chatter. I enjoy teaching an unexpected, creative, sequence that has a mix of vinyasa flow, strengthening, and barre influenced core combinations.”
