Sharing the Path of Yoga

INSTRUCTOR: Aimee Joy Nitzberg

SPECIAL GUEST: Sherry Cassedy

DATE: Saturday, October 14th

TIME: 2:00 – 4:30pm

COST: $45 ($90 for both Saturday and Sunday)

Space is limited to 24 students

Part 1: STRETCH. We begin with a 60 minute yoga flow to drop into the body and clear the mind. Warming up the muscles, opening range of motion in our joints, getting our blood pumping, breath expanding and releasing tension and stress through the physical practice of asanas is our first step. The theme of this flow will include the luminous power of the mind, the intuitive intelligence of the heart and the unifying qualities of the breath.
Part 2: DHARMA TALK. Sherry Cassedy joins Aimee Joy for discourse on yoga philosophy. They will also share some personal stories from their own years of experience on the Yoga Path, as well as encourage everyone present to reflect on their own practice. There will be time for questions.
Part 3: MEDITATE. We will conclude the session with 2-3 Yin Yoga poses to unwind and relax deeply. A meditation will follow to encourage letting go of all forms and ideas, as well as a luxurious savasana to merge with everything.
