New Moon SoulCollage®️ with Natalie Miller
Jun 1, 2019 - Dec 22, 2019
 

When the sun and moon conjoin in the sky, our nights are dark and starry. Tradition says this is a perfect time to pause, self-reflect, listen deep within, and set intuitive intentions for our best way forward.

Join Natalie to practice SoulCollage®, a creative and intuitive process through which we invite our minds to listen to the embodied wisdom of our hearts and guts. SoulCollage® is excellent for strengthening our ability to listen in, and for integrating the various aspects of ourselves.

In each workshop, we’ll explore the astrological themes of the particular month’s New Moon, then create a meaningful and beautiful SoulCollage®. We’ll leave with deeply-seeded, soul-felt intention for the next lunar cycle.

Everybody welcome - no matter how creative/artistic you believe you are - and all materials for your first session are provided.

Course In Miracles Book Club
Aug 13, 2019 - Dec 31, 2019
 
The Course In Miracles is self-study spiritual text that teaches that the way to love and inner peace is through forgiveness. Even though the language of the Course is that of traditional Christianity, it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. A Course in Miracles is therefore a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion. The Course states that “its goal for you is happiness and peace.” The text also explains the basis for fear and guilt, and how they can be overcome thought miracles, which are defined as the maximal “expressions of love.” The miracle is defined as the shift in perception from fear to love. Questioning our current beliefs, understanding we see the world through the filter of our own perceptions and that our emotions are always a result of fear or love are core concepts examined by the course. The language of the Course is often difficult for many to understand and so for this class we will start with the book Journey Beyond Words by Brent Haskell. This book brings a new and refreshing simplicity to many of the seemly difficult concepts of the Course. We will meet every other Monday and the only needed material is the Journey Beyond Words book. You can purchase the book on Amazon is the paperback or kindle version.
 
There is no cost for the class instead a donation of $5-10 per class is appreciated. All the funds will go to Charity Water https://www.charitywater.org/.
 
charity: water is a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.
 
The founder Scott Harrison shows how changing your mindset can change not only your life. Watch the video on how Scott began the organization here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UE9UvT5ujyg.
 
The class will be facilitated by Lynette Sprowls, a student of the Course In Miracles.
 
The class will be held every other Monday.
 
Class Dates for Spring/Summer 2019:
June 3 & 17, July 1, 15, & 29, and then every Monday starting August 5.

Angel Time with B
Oct 19, 2019 - Oct 19, 2019
 
Come join together, in a safe and loving environment, to offer and to receive messages from the angels.

We will open by setting our focus, and calling in our Angels. Names are drawn to determine who will receive messages, and who will assist in sharing messages. If you have your own cards, feel free to bring them with you, or choose from available decks provided. B will call in the individual's Angels, and share messages, and will also provide guidance and assistance for group members sharing messages.

Beth Carleton, simply known as “B”, is an Ordained Angel Minister, ANGEL THERAPY PRACTITIONER ®, Certified Angel Messenger, Reiki Master and author. She delivers angel messages for clients throughout the world in person, via telephone, and Skype and now as a guest presenter at My BodYoga. I met B last year, she literally has a waiting list of about a months to a year. My experience has been so surreal, because she immediately can see angels, and calls them by name. Since then, I have had Angel Time with B at social gatherings, with fascination of what transpires, I'm so drawn in. I am still amazed how information shared is so on point and personal that no one could ever know, well, except for our guardian angles.
B's angels have been guiding her, showing her the way all along, while blossoming her connection with the omnipresent essence of angelic beings. She wants us to encourage us to connect and create with our angels as well. We are guided and protected and so very loved.
I can't even begin to explain or share her touching and beautiful real life story of how she was healed from a brain tumor as she tells it so eloquently. It was her angels who appeared to her, to deliver her a message of her healing and the journey begins. She took this experience to heart and soul, the healing was revealed and a miracle had been witnessed by herself, her family and the medical world. A team of physicians just in amazement to this unexplainable medical phenomenon, she then began to be guided onto this path of encouraging others with love and kindness to carry out the work, her angels had called her to do.

Cost is $20. Attendance for this event is limited to 11 individuals.

Autumn Harvest Workshop: Yoga, Qi Gong, & Meditation with James Foulkes
Oct 26, 2019 - Oct 26, 2019
 

As we enter Autumn, we harvest the growth of Spring and Summer and, like the trees, bring our energy inward to lighten up and release old leaves we no longer need.

Autumn is the most potent season for intuition and vision and is associated with the Metal Element in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In this workshop, we will focus on rejuvenating and invigorating the Organs and Meridians (energy channels) of the Metal Element - the Lungs and Intestines and the transmutation of their negative emotional characteristics.

The Metal energy of Autumn is an expression of new Yin. We will balance the Yin nature of gentle, cleansing asana stretches and breathwork with complementary Yang practices, whilst using meditation, journeying, and deep inward listening to open to our intuitive gifts.

Students of all levels welcome. In Silver Spring.

You’ll learn a safe and enjoyable practice to improve bone and muscle strength, posture, and balance.

This workshop provides an overview of osteoporosis:

- Definition, prevalence, testing, risk factors, remediating factors, physiology
- Consequences: fractures, falls, bone health
- How yoga can counteract thinning bones without undesirable side affects
- Do’s and Don’ts: movements which are safe and movements to be avoid

Then we’ll guide you through carefully selected yoga poses to build muscle and bone, improve posture, balance, and overall strength as recommended by Dr. Lauren Fishman and Ellen Saltonstall.

For men and women of all ages; appropriate for those who’ve never done yoga, experienced students, and yoga teachers.

Mastering the Art of Yoga Sequencing with Jason Crandell
Nov 3, 2019 - Nov 5, 2019
 

3 Day Teacher Development + Inspiration Program


WHY I CREATED THIS TRAINING

Having trained hundreds of teachers over the course of nearly two decades, the most common challenges that I see teachers struggle with involve sequencing—and, each of these problems eventually leads to burnout. The first challenge is that many teachers haven’t learned to properly sequence in their foundational program. They’ve learned to memorize and teach a sequence, but they haven’t learned how to construct their own sequences in a logical, progressive way. The second challenge is when teachers burn themselves out by constantly creating new sequences from week-to-week, or day-to-day. In this scenario, teachers often stress themselves out by putting pressure on themselves to constantly create new and different combinations—often at the expense of being consistent with their students. The last sequencing struggle that leads to burnout is when teachers don’t completely understand the anatomical foundations for safe, successful, productive sequencing.

I created this program from years of experience to solve all of these challenges—and, to you create authentic, effective, logical sequences that make a positive impact in the lives of your students.



WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS TRAINING

This program will provide you with the tools to develop meaningful, authentic and effective sequences for your classes and personal practice. It will provide you with the knowledge, inspiration and technique to generate fresh, safe sequences that represent your voice and vision as a teacher. You will learn the anatomical rationale that underscores safe, effective sequencing for every postural category. You’ll minimize burnout and ensure that you have a larger, more consistent student population by avoiding the most common sequencing challenges that teachers face.


WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT EACH DAY OF THE TRAINING

You will get plenty of practice during this training. Each day starts with seated meditation followed by an accessible, hands-on anatomy discussion that illuminates the sequencing topic of the day. Then, you’ll launch into a strong, 2-hr vinyasa practice that explores the anatomy and sequencing concepts of the day. In the afternoon, you’ll break down the anatomical details further while discussing the sequencing principles for each of the postural categories listed in the paragraph above. Each afternoon will conclude with another, shorter practice that illustrates the sequencing topic of the day.



THE TOPICS COVERED IN THIS PROGRAM

This program covers every aspect of sequencing, including the anatomical rationale that underscores safe and compelling sequences. This program covers the following topics:

DAY 1: Sequencing with Authenticity and Purpose
DAY 2: Turning Inward: Sequencing for Safe, Effective Forward Bends
Creating Space and Freedom: Sequencing for Efficient Backbends
DAY 3: Releasing Tension: Sequencing for Cleansing Twists
Taking Flight: Sequencing for Strong, Stable Arm Balances


THIS PROGRAM IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF

  • You want to teach vinyasa yoga with a more structured, consistent method that helps your students refine and advance their practice.
  • You want to become a more successful, in-demand teacher by refining your skills and creating more consistent, compelling classes for your students.
  • You want to refine and rededicate yourself to your personal practice while elevating the consistency and quality of your teaching.
  • You need help balancing alignment techniques with the rhythm and movement of vinyasa yoga.
  • You need support finding your own voice as a yoga teacher.
  • You want a modern, credible, consistent approach to vinyasa yoga that is safe, skillful and effective.

I Want More: The Yoga of Desire, Pleasure & Agency with Melanie Williams
Nov 16, 2019 - Nov 16, 2019
 

How does your current relationship with your body affect your experience of pleasure? When do you feel like you “have permission” to feel good? What do you find yourself wanting more of? Do you actually know what you want?

Many of us, particularly those of us in marginalized bodies, have experienced the demonization of our desires. It’s hard to avoid internalizing these messages, but doing so often limits our sense of choice. How can we free up more options, including those options we’d ultimately find most pleasurable? What tools does yoga have to offer us in our quest for agency? This workshop provides a forum to explore desire in a community setting, incorporating group discussion and ample opportunities to connect to your body and desires through adaptive movement practices that are suitable for all bodies and abilities. No prior yoga experience is required.

Be the Warrior: Yoga for Survivors of Cancer with Cheryl Kravitz
Nov 17, 2019 - Nov 17, 2019
 

You’ve had the diagnosis, you are in treatment, or you are finished. Cheryl Kravitz, Willow Street Yoga teacher, is currently being treated for breast cancer and is continuing her yogic journey in her weekly class and her workshops.

According to the American Cancer Society, research has long shown that yoga can control physical functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, metabolism, body temperature, brain waves, and skin resistance. This can result in improved physical fitness, lower levels of stress, and increased feelings of relaxation and well-being.

According to the National Institutes of Health, there is also some evidence to suggest yoga may be helpful when used with conventional medical treatment to help relieve some of the symptoms linked to cancer, asthma, diabetes, drug addiction, high blood pressure, heart disease, and migraine headaches.

Please talk to your doctor before starting any new exercise or new therapy to make sure it's safe for you. Use yoga alongside, not instead of, conventional medical treatment. Yoga cannot cure cancer and should not be used by itself to treat cancer or delay treatment.

Sattva Yoga Workshop
Nov 17, 2019 - Nov 17, 2019
 
Sattva Yoga is an integrated practice of Yoga, which comes from Kriya Yoga from the Babaji Lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda, through Anand Mehrotra. In Sanskrit, “sattva” means lucidity, lightness, happiness, tranquility, and non-attachment. Kriya means action that leads us to evolution, expansion, and liberation. In Sanskrit, Kri means action, to do; and ya is another name for Atman, or Soul. Kriya is a Himalayan Kundalini technique or action designed to create an evolutionary response. The purpose of kriya is to get access to deeper states of shunya, or unity consciousness. Kriyas work to generate electricity by combining repetitive movements and mantras to create a moving meditation. This movement of electricity helps to awaken and transform ones' energy to create a physical, psychological, and spiritual shift in one's being. Kriyas can prevent injuries and assist in healing at the cellular level as prana is awakened and heat is ignited from the inside out. Whereas it takes 30 minutes for asana to have a deep, penetrating effect, with kriyas it takes just minutes. Kriya is used in different traditions, such as the Babaji Lineage, the Kundalini Tradition, and the classical Hatha tradition. Although the practices vary according to the tradition, the common thread and purpose of Kriya is for evolutionary action.

The Sattva Yoga practice is an integration of Hatha Yoga, meditation, prānāyāma (Yogic breathing), Kriya, mantra, freedom movement, and transcendental wisdom. More specifically, it incorporates the five main threads of Yoga:

Raja: asana (physical yoga poses), meditation

Tantra: pranayama, Kriya, naad (yoga of sound), Himalayan kundalini, Laya movements

Jñāna: satsang (Q&A), wisdom talks, study of ancient yoga texts

Bhakti: sacred rituals, kirtan, sangha (community), partner work

Karma: seva (selfless service); ayurveda; and conscious eating, consumption, conversation, and parenting

A practice of Kriya is a tool for people to increase their ability to hold and sustain rising energy of kundalini. This practice is great for those who have had an awakening, and are looking for a holistic practice to integrate and guide their own shakti energy.

Sattva Yoga is a method that strengthens the energetic body for a smooth transition into awakening as well. We use Sattva Yoga to prepare ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually for the transformative experience available through accessing the deep reservoir of intelligent energy of the universe. Although Kriyas work to generate electricity, asana and freedom movement work to integrate the generated energy into the body, making sattva yoga an incredibly grounding practice.

Kriyas are a technique that teach us to master our own energy field. Each Kriya connects with a different energetic frequency, some leading us to the heart intelligence in a meditative manner, called laya movements, some invoking transcendental states, some
move energy through voice, others through mantra and breath. Together in a guided experience, each journey is taught with a specific intention, combining the transformative practice of Kriya, pranayama, asana, mantra, ecstatic dance, and more in an integrative
yogic experience.

In a study conducted by Stanford University, it was found that Kriya Yoga was able to bring down hypertension in patients. Studies have also found that the Kriya exercises aim at calming a patient’s mind and reducing anxiety and depression by almost 67%. In the practice of Sattva Yoga, the entire human system is energized in a very short amount of time. All of the internal organs are activated as they secrete necessary hormones and enzymes to keep the body fit. As well, with this practice there will be sufficient blood circulation to the brain and spine for balanced supply of oxygen to every party of the body. Although Kriyas produce incredible health benefits, Sattva Yoga is particularly designed for transformation, personal growth, and a steady awakening into our full potential.

For thousands of years Kriya Yoga from the Babaji Lineage was only offered from guru to disciple, however with the worldwide interest in awakening, the practice is slowly beginning to be offered in more settings by initiated teachers. This practice was passed down to Anand Mehrotra, who has taught myself and other Sattva Yoga teachers the fully integrated practice of yoga.

Yoga for Care Partners with Cheryl Kravitz
Nov 24, 2019 - Dec 8, 2019
 

Caregivers—or the newer term, care partners—are likely to experience emotional stress and other negative impacts on their health or well-being. Most care partners had no choice about taking on their caregiving responsibilities, thus experiencing increased strain and stress—and the physical and mental health ramifications that come with these emotions.

Care partners come in many forms. You might be supporting your mother, father, child or other loved one. You might be in a profession that calls upon those skills. Many care partners don’t take time to pay attention to themselves. During these four weeks we will discuss ways to support ourselves and one another so we can be there fully for the person we are helping.

Gentle poses, meditation, breathing, and restoratives will be part of our practice. Appropriate for all levels, including those with no prior yoga experience. Students are encouraged to bring a journal or notebook. We will also work on personal vision boards.

It is also key that we steer clear of stereotypes that might keep a student away from practice. Being trauma-informed and welcoming to a diversity of students is a best practice for everyone working with the public, not just “mental health” or “recovery yoga” teachers. It is important to use correct language and to avoid statements that could be triggering for each and every one of your students.

Reiki Level 2 Certification
Dec 8, 2019 - Dec 8, 2019
 
Join Lynette Sprowls for Reiki Level 2 training in the Usui Reiki system. This next step of your Reiki journey will build on to the Reiki 1 (which is a prerequisite).
 
When you are attuned to Reiki Level 2, you become more aware of the importance of your connected wholeness on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual; wholeness and balanced health become synonymous.
 
Attunement to Reiki Level 2 opens your heart chakra, which is the mid-point and connector between the physical and spiritual or universal realms. Once your heart chakra opens, your intuition increases and your sensitivity to subtle energies are heightened.
 
Your desire to become attuned to Reiki Level 2 will happen when you are ready to move further into the deeper dimensions of healing with Reiki such as….. Distant/absentee healing
Healing deeper traumas
Healing crises
Healing relationships
Healing situations (personal or global)
Healing situations from the past, present or the future
 
Upon receiving 2nd level attunement, you will learn the three sacred symbols, their form, their sound, and their meaning, which will enable you to consciously direct Reiki energy through your mind (calling the energy) to achieve specific results. The practice of healing through 2nd degree can be profound, as it is considered a quantum leap forward on your spiritual path, indicating your soul’s desire to be of service to others through sharing unconditional love.
 
What is an Attunement? In Japanese, this ceremony is called Reiju (pronounced Ray-joo) and translated, it means spiritual energy blessing. In a modern-day ceremony, your body moves into a spiritual state (or universal energy state) through the use of ancient sounds or symbols, which harmonize your mental and emotional bodies, plus also aligns your spiritual essence within to re-connect you to your true “self” (or your soul). The attunement also clears your meridians (energy pathways) throughout your body to allow Ki energy to flow freely.
 
The Reiki Master Teacher does not have any special powers to pass along but merely acts as a channel to provide or create a safe place for you to draw in Ki energy, thus allowing you to connect universal life force energy (or Source) to your inner self or soul. You will draw Ki energy to the level where you specifically need it – mental, emotional, physical or spiritual levels By receiving attunement at each Reiki level, you accept universal blessings to support your journey of self-responsibility for your own spiritual progress.
 
Your success for your personal journey depends entirely on how much time and effort you are willing to apply; the more effort you make, the more blessings you receive. The main purpose of an attunement is to raise your energy level, plus strengthen your connection to universal spiritual energy.
 
 
Course includes:
-Class manual
-Class certificate
 
The class is a combination of lecture, discussion, and experience. Practice time includes giving and receiving a complete Reiki treatment using all the hand positions, the self -treatment, practice using all the level 2 symbols and learning how to do the long-distant healing.
 
There is a minimum of 2 people registered needed or the class will be rescheduled.
 
Cost: $250

Yoga Deconstructed®: Creativity Meets Science with Trina Altman
Jan 25, 2020 - Jan 26, 2020
 

Movement Science Meets Asana: A New Paradigm (1/25, 12:30-3:30p)

Are you finding that your students often struggle to do even the most basic poses in your classes? Or, if they're able to do all the poses, do they complain of wrist, back or hip pain?

Unfortunately, most people are desk bound and their only movement for the day is during yoga class, so their bodies aren't well adapted for the large ranges of motion required. Conversely, many of our students who are able to practice all the poses are still in pain, because they aren't balancing out their extreme ranges of motion with stability and strength.

If you're struggling with helping your students become more embodied and want strategies to create a safer class environment, this workshop is for you.

This Yoga Deconstructed® workshop will teach you:

* How to apply modern movement science to your yoga teaching.
* How to bring functional movement into your classes, while still feeling like you are teaching yoga.
* An exercise science based approach to sequencing to prepare the body for movement and minimize the risk of pain and injury.
* Understanding the components of a pose, such as directions of movement at each joint, loading principles, and biomechanics.
* An introduction to taking an interdisciplinary approach to teaching yoga and how to add techniques from other modalities to your teaching toolbox.

 

A New Beginning: An Updated Approach to Prepare Your Students for Asana (1/25, 4:30-7:30p)

In yoga classes, we're trying to create an environment that nurtures your mind as well as your structure. However, many of our students don't feel safe in classes because they're afraid of doing the poses incorrectly or receiving an unwanted hands-on adjustment.

Additionally, in most yoga classes, a typical warm up doesn't facilitate joint differentiation. For example, in cat/cow most students will flex and extend their spine in the places that already have the most mobility, rather than finding movement in places that are underused.

Beginning your classes with somatic exercises and sensory feedback methods before a corrective exercise such as cat/cow helps your students become aware of movement blind spots that may contribute to pain in more advanced poses later in class.

This Yoga Deconstructed® workshop will teach you:

* How to choose somatic exercises to encourage active ranges of motion, promote dynamic full body movement, and help prepare the body for larger static poses.
* The application of myofascial release techniques to help your students embody the anatomical concepts taught in traditional yoga, so they can better understand the purpose of the pose.
* How to apply the pain science paradigm to empower your students to trust that their bodies are robust and resilient.
* Strategies to introduce variability and neuromuscular re-education into class that help facilitate tissue resiliency, neuroplasticity, and new motor patterns.

 

Corrective Exercise: Introducing Creativity & Critical Thinking Into Your Classes (1/26, 12:30-3:30p)

Modern postural yoga uses poses that in theory prepare the body for a peak pose at the end of class. However, exercise science has shown that there is a more effective way. By incorporating corrective exercises into our classes, we can better prepare the body for more challenging asanas, while bridging the gap between our sedentary lifestyle and yoga asana. This also helps to reduce the risk of injury.

Also: asana is a highly specialized form of movement that often emphasizes aesthetics over function. Through corrective exercise, we can balance out our practice by including movements that don't exist in yoga poses, thus reducing our risk of pain and overuse injuries.

If you've been trying to incorporate corrective exercises in your teaching, but have been struggling with selecting the right exercises and sequencing them within a class, then this workshop is for you.

Oftentimes, alignment cues are thought to be synonymous with safety. However, not all alignment cues correlate with biomechanics or function. This is why critical thinking skills can make you a more effective teacher.

In this Yoga Deconstructed® workshop, you will learn to apply critical thinking when teaching, creating and selecting corrective exercises.

This will help you understand:
* How to choose the right corrective exercises for your students' needs and based on what you see in the room.
* How to use corrective exercises to prepare your students' tissues and joints for specific asanas.
* The application of corrective exercise to improving function in everyday life and athletic performance.



Putting It All Together: A Revolutionary & Non Dogmatic Approach to Asana (1/26, 4:30-7:30p)

Have you been trying to keep up with the latest research, but you aren't sure how to apply it to your classes?

Are you looking for a way to differentiate yourself and specialize in movement, so you can establish credibility, be the go-to expert in your community, fill your classes, and get more private clients?

Do you just want to know how to keep your students safe?

If so, you're in the right place.

Unlock your creative potential and movement smarts by learning how to combine applied anatomy with the transformative aspects of yoga.

This updated, evidence based formula will keep you current in your teaching, prepare you to foster a safe environment for multi-level classes, help you attract more private clients, and build your following.

This workshop will synthesize everything you've learned in the previous workshops, so you can:

* Structure classes and layer exercises in a fun and challenging way, while keeping the heart of yoga.
* Teach from a skills based approach, instead of lineage based approach.
* Feel confident teaching complex poses and exercises in multi-level classes.
* Incorporate exercises and theories from multiple modalities into your teaching.
* Help your students build strength and stability to balance out their yoga practice.


All workshops will be held in Silver Spring.

Each workshop can be taken individually. A certificate of attendance is awarded to students who take all four workshops. Qualifies for 12 Yoga Alliance CECs.

Women's Life Athlete Retreat
Mar 13, 2020 - Mar 13, 2020
 

WOMEN'S LIFE ATHLETE RETREAT

March 13-15, 2020

Lake Ana, Virgina

The CSA Life Athlete program, all-inclusive, women-only retreat is a unique opportunity to spend an intensive weekend with other women just like you; immersed in the lifestyle and psychology of successful people everywhere. This one of a kind experience will expedite your knowledge of the critical components of the mind, body and spirit relationship. Upon completion, we hope to have you feeling like an athlete in all areas of your life; truly becoming a Life Athlete.

The CSA women’s weekend Life Athlete retreat is limited to only 14 participants. Those participating will be a part of a one of a kind, ground-breaking, all-inclusive, opportunity to surround yourself with other like-minded women. There is currently no other program like it, focused solely on the empowerment of female athletes of all experience levels.

Are there areas in your life you believe are negatively impacting your ability to be the best possible YOU? Ex: Stress, time management, money management, negative self-image, etc. Together with the CSA coaches and other women, you’ll learn how to discover your true ‘Why’ and how we tell ‘stories’ about, and to ourselves, when our actions don’t align with who we think we are or want to be. We’ll teach you how to implement tools and strategies (utilized by sports psychologists, behavioral therapists and successful humans everywhere) to ensure you can overcome even the toughest barriers; while learning how to achieve the flexibility and mental fortitude necessary to tackle anything life may throw at you.

This immersion weekend will allow you to work as a team and in one-on-one settings with CSA coaches. It is uniquely designed to give you the strongest foundation for your pursuit and goals; whether that be the competition stage, general wellness/fitness, or in other areas of your life. We believe that the knowledge you gain, coupled with the work you put in, will give you a unique perspective and advantage to set you on the path to success in all areas of your life.

The ultimate goal of the CSA weekend/program is to train your mind, body and spirit in such a way that you begin to see yourself as an athlete where the lifestyle becomes an integral part of who you are.
