Women's Group Meeting

Empowerment + Connection + Grounding

What is the condition of your inner garden?

Often times the garden metaphor is used to describe the state of our body and mind.

Prepare to leave feeling more connected, empowered and centered.

About Ivie Cornwell:

Ivie Cornwell was introduced to yoga in 2007 when she moved to Oahu. Through focused breath work, dynamatic movement, and long held poses, her physical, emotional, mental and energetic layers began to open and she discovered the incredible healing potential the practice had to offer. Yoga has been instrumental in helping her recover from a back injury and two cesareans within two years. It has improved her flexibility and helped her heal physically as well as energetically. After receiving a master’s in education in 2010, Ivie saw the benefit of the practice in the classroom. She became YogaEd certified and worked with the Farrington High School cross country team to teach middle school students at Kaimuki. And in 2018 she completed the Aloha Kula Yoga teacher training program. You can practice with Ivie at Aloha Yoga Kula in Kailua and find her collaborating at Yoga Unplugged events.

About Jennifer Reuter:

Jennifer discovered yoga in 1998, after receiving her first copy of the Bhagavad Gita, and has been passionately inquiring yogic philosophy ever since. She studies extensively with many different teachers finding great value in exploring every style yoga has to offer. For 10 years she formally studied deep tantric meditation and was initiated as an “acharya” and authorized teacher of Neelakantha Meditation by Blue Throat Yoga. She’s also a level 2 certified Irest yoga nidra teacher. Jennifer has been leading teacher trainings and advanced yogic studies since 2009. You will find her classes, lectures and retreats “interdisciplinary” inviting both ancient and modern day tools. Her teachings are intelligent, pragmatic and always heartfelt. Jennifer is the founder of Yoga Unplugged, a platform that brings teachers and healers together to host events and trainings. She believes that collaborating enables her to offer a wider variety of philosophies, teaching styles and healing modalities to her students and envisions a day when Yoga Unplugged is a brand that doesn’t just belong to one person, but to many people spread across the world with the same core purpose.

Meditation Immersion: The Path of Awakening
Aug
18
to Aug 24

Meditation Immersion: The Path of Awakening

The word “awakening” is often used in a way that it sounds like an extraordinary rarified achievement. The esoteric can be alluring yet baffling and it can cause the average person to feel confused and/or stuck. But as many traditions teach, “awakening” is an “open secret” and itʻs available to everybody.

The problem is that we don’t normally perceive awakening because we are still identified with our thinking, feeling, and bodily sensations.

As Thomas Merton once said, “Life is this simple: we are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable, it is true.”

Through the practice of meditation we are able to experience this truth. Meditation teaches us that awakening is a process and that it is not necessarily “exotic ”but in fact is just the simplicity of our being.

Meditation is a practical tool and accessible to all. By learning how to quiet the mind one experiences the true meaning of “awakening,” which is the natural movement towards more well-being, bliss and connection.

This immersion is open to all levels. It will include discussion, mindfulness based asana and various techniques to help quiet the mind.

Topics include:

- Meditation as a path towards awakening and knowledge of one’s self

- Meditation as a spectrum: exploring different practices and their effects

- Misperceptions about meditation

- The effects meditation has on the brain, body, sleep, emotions and nervous system

- Science-backed research of why and how meditation works

- Meditation teachings taken from yoga and other mystical traditions

Meditation practices will include:

Silence, Mindfulness, Kriyas, Breathing, Yoga Nidra, Compassion, Blessings, Gratitude, Journaling

Schedule:

Sunday, Aug. 18th - 12:30pm-4:30pm

Monday Aug. 19th - 5:30pm-8:30pm

Wednesday Aug. 21st - 5:30pm-8:30pm

Yoga Nidra And Sankalpa Sakti
Apr
1
to Apr 14

Yoga Nidra And Sankalpa Sakti

In our daily lives, we rarely experience true rest—the kind of rest that enables our bodies to restore and repair as they are meant to. Approximately 70 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of sleep disorder, which means that even as we sleep, we are not finding the balance our bodies need to achieve homeostasis. As we normalize stress, fatigue, and imbalance, we experience different levels of illness.

Yoga nidra or “yogic sleep,” a sleep-based meditation using breath, relaxation, and visualization, offers healing and true balance. Its effects address physical, mental, and spiritual dis-ease, and it has been used successfully to treat PTSD, addiction, and ADHD. As a yogic practice, it allows us to release deeply embedded and unconscious patterns and become more fully who we are.

This training is open to all students regardless of skill level or practice. You’ll experience firsthand the effect of yoga nidra and learn its foundations as well as how to conducts sessions for individuals and groups.

Schedule:

April 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13 & 14 2019
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 5:30-8:30pm, Saturday 9-2 & Sunday 12:30-4:30

Stress is a part of life. We cannot eliminate it, but we can mitigate it.

Are you aware of how stress adversely affects your brain? Or, how it can change the physical structure of your body?

This series is broken up into two parts: brain and body.

Part two will address the body––how it moves under stress, what it does to your posture and how to correct it.

You will leave with a greater understanding and compassion for the basic design of your brain and body and how they function, and take away simple practices that universally address common stress patterns, so that you can mitigate and reverse their effects on a daily basis.
