Yoga to Support Safe Alliance

safealliance

 

Let’s come together as a community and share our practices for the benefit of others. This is a cause that is near and dear to our teachers Patsy Springer and Brett Haginas, and they are thrilled to combine the magic of yoga with the power of selfless giving.

You’ll get to enjoy 90 minutes of vinyasa and yin yoga. Completely donation-based, and 100% of the donations go to SAFE.

About SAFE:
The SAFE Alliance is a structured partnership between SafePlace and Austin Children’s Shelter, two organizations that serve the survivors of child abuse and neglect, sexual assault and exploitation, and domestic violence.

This organization, based in Austin, TX, strives to create a safe haven and support system to anyone despite gender identity, sexual orientation, race, age or ethnicity who is overcoming abuse of any sort.

Intro to Jiu Jitsu for Yogis


bsy_jj_fb_cover_nov2016-1

 

We’re having a FREE workshop for yogis who are interested in Jiu Jitsu! With so many parallels between the two, Yoga and BJJ are a great combination for the yin and yang aspect of your movement-based practices. Best part, you get to share your mat with another yogi, and play a game that, like yoga, is a lifelong practice. Our workshop will be lead by Onnit‘s director of Jiu Jitsu, Curtis Hembroff, lead coach at 10th Planet Austin. See you soon!

Sun Salutations, The Heart of Flow

sun-salutations-FB

Sun Salutations are a series of postures linked with rhythmic breath. They serve to energize and warm the body, as well as focus and calm the mind.

In this workshop we will take time to examine the various components of this sequence, including transitions and your individual optimal alignment of each posture. We will take a closer look at the benefits, history and the intricacies of this age old yogic practice.

Understanding Tantra Yoga with Michelle Young

understanding-tantra-yoga

Students will learn what tantra yoga is, and how to incorporate it into their lives. Students can expect to learn about kriya, pranayama, asana, and meditation and how they fit within the system of tantra yoga. Special emphasis will be on the nervous system and how these practices work on down regulating the nervous system, and the benefits that come from a practice focused on balance. Students will also develop a deeper awareness of how tantra yoga can be used on our metaphysical energetic layers (our cognition) to reprogram and align our intentions.
