Workshop 1:  Yoga On and Off the Mat

Yoga is so much more than a pose… however we can learn so much about ourselves through our asanas when practiced mindfully.   To take what is learned on the mat into our day to day living makes yoga part of a lifestyle that will have enormous benefits.  In this workshop we will discuss how to get the most out of your practice and how you can translate what happens on the mat to your life off the mat.  Workshop includes an all-level yoga practice to deepen the connection of mind, body and spirit.

Workshop 2: Meditation, Mindfulness, Movement and Memory

Research is showing the connection between meditation, mindfulness, movement and memory.  This workshop will take us through different ways to protect the aging mind.  It’s never too early to start!  We will practice different mediation techniques as well as how to bring mindfulness into your everyday life.  Lifestyle changes and modifiable risk factors can also play an important role in prevention.  Learn how to create a Memory Palace to assist with short term memory.   Birthdays will come but we can slow down the process of our aging by the way we think and live today!

Workshop 3: Play, Rest and Wholehearted Living

If you were asked to make a wish list what would be on it?  If you were asked to list what makes you happy what would be on that list?  Do your two lists conflict?  So often we wish for material things but find what brings us true joy is creativity and playful times.  Play simple for the sake of play.  We are all born creative beings… finding your expression of creativity can sometimes be a challenge if you have labeled yourself as “not the creative type.”  We will explore ways to balance work, play and rest that will open you to a new way of living… Joyfully and Whole-hearted!

Working with the Chakras June 9th

Join us in this seminar to see how you can use asana, pranayama, breathing practices and awareness to strengthen the flow of energy through the chakras and reclaim the natural support system that they are for the body, mind and heart. We start with the understanding of how and where the chakras are formed by the nadis, the energy channels, and then see how they can weaken over time through dissipation of the flow or blocking the flow completely. Then we use ourpractice of asana, breath and awareness specifically to strengthen the channels and release thedams that we’ve built through habits and misunderstandings. We reclaim the flow of energy that supports us, that helps us live spiritually in this world. At the end of the session, we step back into our lives with a greater degree of compassion, more intelligent support that comes from the inside,and more resilience to offer the world.

The Three Main Chakras in depth June 10th

Of the six major chakras located along the subtle spinal axis, the three main ones are manipura (3) ,anahata (4) and ajna (6). They govern the other chakras in very sublime and profound ways. The Manipura Chakra at the navel area is the gateway to the lower two chakras and known to give health and radiance to the body. The Anahata Chakra, at the heart area, is the seat of Pure
Consciousness and the source of our innate joy and freedom. The Ajna Chakra in the area of the mind is the Command Center, shining its light on the Vishuddha chakra and governing all six major chakras located within the body. By understanding these particularly powerful centers and their currents, you reach deeper into the well of yoga, enriching the practice you now have in an insightful and meaningful way. We will use asana, pranayama and meditation to access and activate these areas.

Shari Friedrichsen has been teaching and studying yoga for more than 40 years and is a key facilitator at the Himalayan Institute’s Teacher Training & Professional Certification programs.
