at Spacious Heart Yoga

Saturday 12.12.15 ~ 1-3:30pm
final-logo-orange

 

Join me, Saturday, December 12th 1-3:30pm, at Spacious Heart Yoga in downtown Goshen, IN, for the joyful practice of Laughter Yoga. Combining mindful pranayama (breathing techniques) with laughter, students will learn to practice and cultivate space to consciously bring joyfulness, fun and laughter back into their lives.

Just as we must regularly put into practice the skills we use for our jobs, the sports we engage in, the musical instruments we play, the asana we practice on our yoga mats, so to must we consciously practice and create space for the powerful healing that laughter and joy provide us.

During this workshop we will watch the short documentary, Laughology and we will practice movements & breathing techniques combined with conscious laughter. No experience with yoga or laughter necessary.

Please bring a water bottle and wear comfortable clothes that you can easily move around in. You may also choose to bring a light snack, if you like. You can bring your own mat if you choose or use one of ours and there will be chairs for those who would like them.

Early bird $ 25
Late Registration $30

Burn the Turkey  

w/Dawn at Spacious Heart Yoga

burn the turkey

 

The family has been assembled. The food has been consumed. You’ve had your fill of socializing and your fill of stuffing… Now it’s time to get on the mat and burn off some of the gluttony, warm the body up from the cold and come back to center. So join me the day after at Spacious Heart Yoga, 11am on Friday 11.28.14 for a heated yoga class.

*The practice will be vigorous and is best suited for those who have a strong practice and solid understanding of foundational poses. We will be flowing from pose to pose (vinyasa) as well as slowing things down to hold poses as well. The room will be heated to 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bring a towel (you will probably sweat), water and your own mat if you have one. Happy Thanksgiving. See you on the mat!
