Beyond the Asana and Into the Prana with Rachel Lowe & Susan Horiuchi
Oct 6, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $40
Becoming aware of chakra elements in our yoga practice and beyond supports our ability to tune-in to areas needing attention to restore balance and wellbeing.Reiki (universal energy) will be infused into the room as well as during yoga asana (physical postures) and breathing practices to reinvigorate energy flow.
In this workshop we will:
· Introduce the chakra system and corresponding visualization cues such as colors and sounds
· Move through a guided yoga and breathing practice (slow pace and for all levels)
· Experience hands-on and hands-off Reiki
· Conclude with tea and community connection after the practice
Come with a curious mind and learn ways to enhance alignment with our own mental-body energy connection.
Date & Time: Oct. 06th, 2019 @1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
About the instructor: Rachel Lowe
Rae Lowe began practicing yoga while teaching fitness classes and found the balancing effects of yoga immediately. She has studied locally with Jenny Hayo, Anne Phyfe Palmer, Jo Leffingwell, Melina Meza, and nationally with Shiva Rae, Tias Little, Rod Stryker, Shari Friedrichsen, Sarah Powers, and JinSung. Rai has been teaching since 2001 and holds 500-RYT and RPYT certifications. Her 500 hour and Prenatal training were completed through 8 Limbs Yoga Centers and her 200 hour training was completed through Samadhi Yoga in Seattle, Washington. She has worked in several diverse settings – yoga studios, fitness clubs, elementary schools, corporate offices, and universities and colleges. This has given her the opportunity to teach an array of classes – Vinyasa, Yin, Gentle, Intro, Family and Kid Yoga, Prenatal/Postnatal, Partner Yoga, and Meditation. She leads the Bellevue College 200-hour RYS Teacher Training Program, teaches Prenatal Yoga for 200-hour Teacher Trainings, and leads Yoga Workshops and Retreats.
Rae encourages all levels of students to truly tune in and listen to their bodies, be curious and enjoy discovering varied options (by modifying or challenging) in their practices each day. Showing up on our mat with whatever we are facing, allows us to take what we learn during our sadhana (practice) to other aspects of our lives. It is here that we can discover and create the many ways of letting balance unfold in our lives. Rai supports students in this unfolding by weaving in yoga philosophy with a focus on stability and fluidity within the physical body, breath and mind.
