The Gift of Self Compassion with Aruni Nan Futuronsky . Sat, Apr 19, 2014 at 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Based on Swami Kripalu’s profound quote, “self observation without judgment is the highest spiritual practice” this workshop will offer core principles of living yoga, and give participants an opportunity to practice through journaling, guided meditation, gentle movement, and conscious dialoguing. As an experiential workshop, it will address the body/mind, not just the mind.
 
Writer, teacher, and mindfulness coach, Aruni Nan Futuronsky finds life is best experienced with compassion, gratitude, and a whole lot of humor. She has worked at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health since 1989. As a senior faculty member, she teaches self-discovery and spiritual attunement programs. Aruni is the creator of the innovative CD, “Life~Works, Meditations for Mindful Living”. She is the author of three books. The first, Recovering My Voice, is the story of one woman’s journey to find herself and her voice. Her second book, Already Home, is part memoir and part spiritual guide. Her new book, recently released, “Not Over Yet—Simple Strategies to Struggle Less and to Savor More” is an interactive workbook, inviting its readers into the practice of mindful presence.

Cultivating the Core with Natasha Rizopoulos . Sat, May 17, 2014 at 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

YogaBalance Master Instructor Series

Core stability is a key ingredient to a healthy asana practice. But what is the Core and how do we strengthen it? Join internationally acclaimed Natasha Rizopoulos for this workshop that will help you illuminate and activate this muscle group which is so important in our Yoga practice.

We’ll begin with a review of the key muscles that create steadiness at the center. Then we’ll put theory into practice in a sequence that will bring intelligence and tone to the muscles that support your torso and pelvis. We’ll examine poses and transitions that you can incorporate into your regular practice and explore how transformative this work can be, in terms of asana, posture and sense of Self.

As a former ballet dancer, Natasha knew she had come home when she discovered Yoga in her 20s. That moment of recognition and delight continues to inspire her teaching to this day. Now a Senior Teacher with YogaWorks and Down Under Yoga, and a writer, teacher, and DVD instructor for Yoga Journal, Natasha is known world-wide for her ability to communicate the essence of sophisticated postures and ideas in ways that have a transformative effect upon one’s understanding of Yoga. A dedicated Ashtanga practitioner for many years, she is equally captivated by the precision of the Iyengar system. These two traditions inform her teaching, creating a dynamic and rigorous blend of intelligently sequenced and aligned Vinyasa Flow. For more about Natasha and Align Your Flow (and to see clips of her teaching and read her articles and blogs) visit her website at NatashaRizopoulos.com.

Fee: $45 per person. Register before Saturday, May 10 and pay just $40. Continuing Education Credit certificates for Registered Yoga Teachers with Yoga Alliance will be available for this workshop.
