India: My experience Photography by Brian Thomasberger

brian india.jpg

Join us for this special evening! On Saturday, June 15, I will be having a gallery viewing of some of my photographs from a recent trip to India. It will be held at Happy Buddha Yoga in Goshen, N.Y.

 These photographs to me, have been a humbling reminder that there is so much beauty in the world, even in the unfamiliar, the less fortunate, and the broken down. India holds so many secrets; in her people, her streets, especially in her culture. These images are me, trying to take a peek at some of those secrets from her past, present, and future.

I invite you to come on June 15, 5-8pm, check out some photography, have a glass of wine, and enjoy the space of Happy Buddha Yoga. No need to register, just drop in.

A Mala is a garland of 108 beads plus one bead as the Guru bead. Malas are traditionally used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra. Wearing a Mala can serve as a daily reminder of what you are trying to manifest in your life at that particular time.

You will learn a little bit of the history of Malas, the importance of meditation and mantras, and you will have a chance to find the perfect mantra for yourself. You will leave with a beautiful Mala you have created yourself set with your own personal intention, along with knowledge of how to use it.

Tricia began the regular practice of yoga in 2014 and received her 200 hour yoga teacher certification in May of 2015 from the Body Art Barn in Blooming Grove, NY.

Thai Yoga Bodywork Workshop with Brian and Charleen

thai body work from Brian.jpg

What Is Thai Yoga Bodywork?

Thai Bodywork gives the benefits of massage, yoga, and energy work in one nurturing dance.  It is an ancient healing art form practiced in Thailand. The name in Thai language is Nuat Boran [noo-ut bo-rahn], but in America it is variously called "Thai Massage," "Thai Yoga Massage," or "Thai Bodywork."  Boran means "ancient" or "classical" and Nuat is often translated as "massage", though it is not really "massage" as Americans think of it but a holistic bodywork. Traditionally given on a floor mat with clients fully clothed, Thai bodywork is a whole-body treatment.  It combines passive stretching and movement of joints with several touch techniques and work along energy meridians (called sen in Thai). 

You do not have to already be flexible to get and enjoy Thai Bodywork

 The Benefits of Thai Bodywork

The whole treatment is a graceful, nurturing, interactive dance that is sensitive to the condition of each person.  The effect of Thai Massage is greater flexibility, flow of energy, deep relaxation, and feeling of well being. The art of Thai bodywork achieves a deep therapeutic effect without harsh physical force through efficient use of movement, conscious touch, breathing and rhythm.  Since it is given on a floor mat with the client fully clothed, practitioners can use their whole body in leverage and interactive work as they move and rock the client into various positions, apply rhythmic touch as well as some cross-fiber stroking of muscle and tendons. The treatment can be vigorous or gentle depending on the need or preference of the client. Always respectful and caring, it is adjustable to suit most clients, young or not-so-young, athlete or spectator.

.What Are Energy Lines?

The invisible energy lines are perceived to circulate throughout the body to maintain health and vitality.

There are said to be 72,000 lines. It’s believed 10 main lines treat the whole body and its internal organs.

This is a non-religious or spiritual perspective and practice. When this energy flow is blocked or restricted, it creates sickness or disease. To clear these blockages, Thai massage combines the application of pressure with manipulation, and muscle stretching in a full-body works, which improves overall health and well-being.

 -What You Will Learn-

This is NOT a certification course!

In this introductory workshop, you will learn the basics of Thai Yoga Bodywork. You will learn various postures, different pressure techniques, the areas of Sen lines, and workable pressure points. Workshop = $40. To register, click here.

8 Things Every Yoga Teacher Should Know About Anatomy

Join Susan Swiat, Physical Therapist and Certified Yoga Teacher, for this in-depth review of Anatomy.

8 things every.jpg

**It is not necessary to memorize hundreds of muscles and bones to experience the benefits of applying anatomy to yoga. What is necessary is the functional understanding of key anatomic structures in their settings as they relate to Hatha Yoga. Knowledge of these structures can be applied immediately to optimize your practice, break through blockages and prevent injuries in your own body as well as in your students. The more we know about the body, the more we can work with our body in a healthy way and pass this knowledge on to others. **

 This course is appropriate for new and experienced Yoga instructors. We will review all the major systems in the body including the bones and muscles of the skeletal system and spine. Discussion of the types of joints in the body, major planes of movement and muscle actions will be applied to essential yoga poses in order to understand alignment that could put the body at risk. The anatomy and physiology of breath will be reviewed as it applies to a pranayama practice.

Raveling Unraveling and Your Hips and Twists: Resistance Bands and Yoga Workshop

Brought to you by Guilia of Threes Physiyoga Method™

Raveling Unraveling.jpg

Hips & Twists: Many of us have or may experience lower back, sacral, or hip joint pain during the course of our lives or in and with our movement practices. In the yoga practice with all of our forward bending, lunging, twisting, and “hip opening”, the risk of something running awry with how we are practicing and causing pain in these areas is quite common. This class will help you understand how to find YOUR neutral pelvis and femur (or thigh bone) centered within its socket and how to strengthen the areas around the hip joint to create more stability with mobility around the pelvis. We will dive into discussions of allowing the pelvis to twist or not in twisting postures, and the benefits of both. Using the bands, we will access our super-important hip joint rotator cuff, core twisting muscles, and powerful glutes. These concepts allow optimal stability and control through the vast ranges of motion that can occur within the hip and pelvis.

In these workshops, you will learn how to use and move your body differently and more efficiently IMMEDIATELY.

• Each class will start with a brief explanation of the concepts we will explore through practice. We will start slow, and build upon a foundation of optimal movement patterns and awareness.

• Expect to wear therabands for all poses in the movement sequences and connect with your body somatically to harness control of your movements and learn about your limits.

• We will use the bands as accommodating lines of resistance against which to generate force for creating tensile strength and stability with mobility.

REIKI 1 WITH ELIZABETH CHIKELES

Learn the healing art of Reiki in this intensive class with Reiki Master Elizabeth Muise. The class will include lecture, Q&A, hands on practice, attunement and certification for Level One. Workshop = $135 To register, click  HERE and go to our workshops page.


WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki (pronounced “Ray-kee”) is a simple and powerful hands-on healing technique that creates balance and harmony within mind, body, and spirit. The word “Reiki” comes from two Japanese characters or kanji. The top character “Rei” means “universal soul or spirit” and “ki” means “energy.” Together the two words represent “universal life-force energy.”

As a healing method, Reiki uses an energy transmittal system in which the Reiki practitioner draws energy from the universe and then transfers this energy through the hands to the self or another. Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual blocks are dissolved with Reiki, bringing people greater health and overall wellbeing. Reiki works with the body's innate wisdom to facilitate healing where and how it is needed.

Coloring Outside The Lines: The Yoga Revolution with Kelly Kamm

Coloring outside the lines Kelly.jpg

What we call YOGA is changing rapidly these days, as it should. An essential tenet of yoga philosophy is rebelliousness.  Our ancient predecessors took a stand against commercialism and materialism. They defied convention and left the "normal" world behind as they headed to the ashrams or the mountains to seek deeper meaning. And now a new generation of yoga teachers is challenging things once again, both philosophically and anatomically. This weekend will be rich with discussion and practice.  We will explore the myriad ways that people are revolutionizing the physical practice of Asana, as well as how the status quo is being challenged when it comes to doctrine. It's a weekend to question everything, to seek new ways of opening the body and mind, and to get back to the real root of Yoga, radical transformation. Workshop = $250. This program is part of the 300 advanced teacher training program, but is open to all. Click here to register and go to our workshops page.
