A community conversation on yoga & cultivating equanimity in turbulent times
8 Limbs Livestream
There’s a lot going on in our world right now, to say the least. Amidst fraught politics, climate change, growing movements against injustices, and challenges posed by a global pandemic, there are many forces that can leave us feeling divided and depleted, or energized and engaged. How can meet our chaotic world from a place of grounding; of centeredness?
For the past 24 years at 8 Limbs, yoga has been our center. Today, our mission to provide a supportive and welcoming place to learn and grow through the mind-body practices of yoga has never felt more relevant. Join us for a free one-night only, virtual community event, “8 Limbs YOGA CENTERS” dedicated to the subject of cultivating equanimity through yoga and community as we address the many tensions in our world.
The event will include a town hall panel conversation via Zoom featuring 8 Limbs teachers Chiara Guerrieri, Karen Gamble, and Misha Kellner-Rogers, moderated by 8 Limbs Operations Manager Lauren Kite.
In this curated discussion, we will explore:
✓ Practices and knowledge that can help us navigate turbulent times
✓ What is actionable about yoga?
✓ Who are we in relationship to these practices?
There will be time at the end of the discussion for questions from community members tuning in.
Date & Time: Friday, November 6th, 7:15-8:45pm
About the instructors: Chiara Guerrieri, Karen Gamble, and Misha Kellner-Rogers
What to expect in Chiara’s Classes: Chiara teaches us how to connect with the body through the breath, how to track physical sensation moment to moment and how to find an internal sense that guides movement and choices for wellbeing. In both her SoulMat & Hatha yoga classes, expect to go slowly, to pay attention to your body and breath, and to explore alignment. An important aspect of Chiara’s teaching is to help students learn when – and from where – to stabilize or mobilize. Expect the wisdom of a 30-year teaching career, plus a good dose of humor, to infuse each class.
Main Influences/Styles/Traditions: SoulMat with Patrizia Gavoni, Hatha Yoga with Bob Smith, Forrest Yoga with Ana Forrest, Shari Fredrickson, ParaYoga with Rod Stryker, and dance from around the world.
What to expect in Karen’s class: A mix of mindfulness, pranayama and love, love, love. Karen teaches the Intro Series at Phinney Ridge where she provides enough information and self-compassion to motivate students into yoga studios everywhere. She also teaches inspired vinyasa flow and mindful yin classes.
Main Influences/Styles/Traditions: Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Mohammad Ali, Nelson Mandela, Vipassana, Vinyasa, Yin.
What to expect: Misha’s classes include a steady flow of dynamic movement with time to pause, feel and listen. No two classes will be identical in sequence, and all will be infused with creative and clear offerings to brighten and enhance your inner alignment; inclusive of body, mind and heart. Expect to turn inward and experience your own essence and anatomy, breath by breath.
Main Influences/Styles: Kripalu Yoga, Sarah Powers/Insight Yoga Institute, Buddhism, Taoism
