Bhakti Flow Yoga with Erick Herlong

May 4, 2019 

Bhakti flow combines aspects of love, compassion and healing with the grace of vinyasa flow yoga. This workshop will not only stretch your body and your breath but will also stretch your heart by inviting you to move beyond the physical aspects of the practice and experience the asanas on an emotional level. The workshop will begin with a short talk, which will introduce Bhakti yoga along with a theme. This theme will be woven throughout the workshop. We will then have a 90 minute asana practice with specially selected music which will enhance the theme and energy of the class. We will incorporate universal mantras through Kirtan (singing together) – at the close of the class.

This workshop will challenge you to let go of anything in your life that feels stagnate, it will empower you to create the life you desire by asking you to embrace the truth of who you are. The workshop will seek to provide a space for you to explore your yoga practice on a deeper more personal level in an effort to encourage you to live your life to its highest potential.

time: 2-4pm

Summer Solstice Yin with Matt

June 22, 2019 

Each day we take about twenty-three thousand breaths. These are filtered through the lungs. The lungs are the first area to assimilate prana, or chi, from the outside of the body to the inside. The lungs help us replenish energy throughout the body. When lung chi is deficient, there can be deficiencies in any area of the body. Healthy lung chi is connected with the willingness to endure and personal confidence. When lung chi is deficient, thinking is unclear and we feel disconnected. This Yin session targets the upper body channels whiche are affected in the heat of summer.  You will leave you feeling nourished from the inside out, clear headed and able to breathe in a whole new way.

Coming into a pose in a consciously slow yin way and staying for many minutes helps us go deeper within our natural ranges of motion in the joints of the hips and lower back to alleviate physical pain and energetic stagnation. Yin style targets the connective tissue in the body which wraps around and through each muscle and joint. When doing long held poses, we are loading the connective tissue & ligaments with gentle pressure and pulling. This relieves the body physically as well as energetically and emotionally.

Embracing Our Bigger Bodies with Kimmie

June 29, 2019 

Your Body Loves You, Love it Back! You only have the one body in this lifetime, embrace it, love it, and give it the care it needs. As Kimmie always says, “Make your yoga practice work for your body versus your body working for the yoga practice.” In this workshop, we will discuss what it’s like to be a bigger body in a yoga class/practice, how to get the most out of a yoga practice with modifications, and how to practice these ideas in an hour long practice. Please feel free to bring pen and paper to take notes.

This class is highly recommended to those that wish to enhance their practice and to yoga teachers that wish to enhance their teaching to teach to bigger bodies.

Kimmie has completed her RYT200 with Greenville Yoga in 2013, completed Curvy Yoga Exploration with Integrative Yoga Therapy in 2014, and is currently working on her RYT300 through Asheville Yoga.

time: 2-4pm

Summer Kirtan with Erick Herlong & Friends

July 20, 2019 

The word kirtan stems from a Sanskrit root that means to cut through. David Newman (teacher of kirtan) says kirtan is also “a practice for cutting through the idea of separation, for connecting to our hearts and connecting to the moment through sound.”

Please join us for a blissful evening enjoying the Bhakti Yoga practice of Kirtan, a tradition of singing universal mantras in a call and response format. Bhakti yoga is one of the four main yogic paths to enlightenment. Bhakti means “devotion” or “love” and this path contains various practices to unite the bhakta with the divine. One of those practices, Kirtan is the most popular path in the west, as it invites everyone to participate in whatever way feels right for them. It only requires your showing up with an open mind and a joyful spirit. During the Kirtan we will blend our voices to create a deep sense of connection to something greater than ourselves, as we purify our hearts and liberate our souls with this ancient devotional practice.

time: 7-9pm

cost: FREE to all!
