Restorative Yoga by Candlelight

with Karen Kapus

Sunday, March 4, 2018 • 6:30pm – 8:30pm

As the days become shorter and colder, our bodies naturally crave slowing down and yet we often get busier and ignore this urge. Restorative yoga is a completely passive practice that utilizes props to support our bodies in all of the poses to aid in complete relaxation. By relaxing our muscles, lowering our heart rate, and allowing our nervous system to slow down, restorative yoga helps us to balance our fast-paced lifestyles. As we find stillness in the pose we allow for healing, both physically and mentally, which ultimately supports us in being more focused and effective. Restorative is accessible to people of all ages and skill-levels.

Reserve your space! Only 16 spots available. Feel free to wear your pjs!

Wall Vinyasa

with Erica Taxin Bleznak

Saturday, April 7, 2018 • 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The wall has been with you since you first stepped onto your mat. Now discover how it will help you dive more deeply into your asana practice. In this master class we will use the wall as an aid for proper alignment, as a vehicle for deepening postures, as a tool for exploring fun sequences, as an assistant for inversions, and as a support for restorative postures.

Erica Taxin Bleznak, MSW, CYT began practicing yoga in 1986 in the Asthanga Yoga tradition until she met her Primary Teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll in 1992 and completed her yoga teacher training in the Pranakryia Yoga teaching tradition. Erica co-owned Jai Yoga Studio of the Main Line for 7 years until its closing, and opened Main Line Yoga Shala in Narberth in 2016. Six years ago she created a teaching curriculum for a Wall Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program that allows students to utilize the wall as a prop for alignment and refinement, as well as a way to strengthen and deepen in the vinyasa practice. Erica travels frequently presenting at festivals and studios across the country, as well as hosts retreats internationally. Erica believes that if we can meet the practice with patience, curiosity and breath that will deliver us beyond the ways the mind has held us captive and reveal our inherent freedom.

Pointing at the Moon: Satsang + Bhajans

with Guest Instructor

Saturday, December 9, 2017 • 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Good vibes and great company! This experience will begin with a short meditation period after which Drew will facilitate a satsang experience (Satsang is a Sanskrit term that translates roughly as “in the company of, or gathering for, truth”). Folks in attendance will be invited and encouraged to ask questions and a dialogue will unfold. After a nice dose of truth settles in, Drew will then lead the group in bhajans (devotional songs) where everyone will be invited and encouraged to celebrate truth and love and each other and all the things through singing, chanting and lovely feels.

Satsang is a great experience for truth seekers and Bhajans are fun for everyone!
