Prana: The Sacred Link

July 6, 7, 13, 20, 27, 28 2019

Saturday & Sunday 11:30-5:30

Location: Open Space Yoga - Haleiwa

(*July 20th will be 9-12 & 2-5 at Diamond Head*)

Cost: $600 or $480 for members
Part of our 300/500RYT Certification

Teachers: Mary Bastien & Jennifer Reuter

Details:

Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, defines stress as “that which interferes with natures’ intelligence in our body”. Yoga defines that nature’s intelligence as “Prana” or life force.

According to the ancient texts, there are 72,000 thousand “nadis” or pranic pathways in which that life force flows inside the human psychic body. Along these subtle pranic channels that intelligence can become interfered by becoming obstructed, under-stimulated or over-stimulated causing disharmony and dis-ease.

The understandings and exploration of Prana give one practical tools to embody the unifying intelligence, optimize health and give one a greater connection to being alive.


In this module we will:
~ Explore the yogic concepts of universal energy/great life force often referred to as “Mahaprana” or “Pranashakti”

~Outline the human blueprint of “Mahaprana” as it is organized into the 5 (pancha) subpranas or prana vayus: udana, apana, prana, vyana, & samana.

~Learn how to participate and power the 5 prana vayus for reduction of stress and optimal living through the modalities of asana, pranayama and meditation.

~Breakdown the pranic alignment of key asanas or postures for greater access to well-being.

~ Learn key mudras to enhance pranic flow and stimulate individual vayus.

~Explore the 5 “koshas” or sheaths that “pranically” or energetically house the human spirit.

~ Uncover the science behind the 3 bandhas and the supreme seal, MahaBandha.

~ Learn the three main channels or pathways, Ida, Pingala and Sushumna nadis.

~Learn different pranayama practices to balance imbalances and to prepare for meditation.

~Learn how to sequence intelligently for students, clients or ourself.

Meditation For Peace

Meditation For Peace

$15 at the door

Mystics & Poets Series | May-August 2019

Over the next 4 months we will cover 4 poets: Rumi, Mary Oliver, Thomas Merton and Rabindranath Tagore.

Poets have an elegant way of using language to express the sacred. Their poems have the power to trigger experiential sublime insights. You might agree that great poetry has a way of speaking directly to the heart and soul. It can spark a feeling of wholeness, to help correct the broken or dis-“eased” places that are deep inside every one of us. Poetry even has a way of radically changing views of the world and our story in it. Anything that can help us do this is valuable to the human spirit.

This Month’s Poet:

This month we will discuss and meditate on the words of Thomas Merton.

Host: Jennifer Reuter

Special Guest: Jason Eric Belair (Expressing Oneness)

Event Details:

  • Inspirational and educational discussion on the theme and meditation

  • Silent seated meditation

  • Sound bath (a collaboration between Jennifer & Jason)

To be at peace is to live in harmony with everything and everyone around you. It is total freedom from fear and resistance. But, in order to truly be at peace you have to find peace within. You may often find your outer world gets chaotic and feels out of balance. You may be trying to change your external circumstances to find peace, but find that nothing ever lasts long term. You will never find peace externally, if you are lacking it internally. 

Meditation is a tool used to cultivate inner peace.

It is a way to practice focusing on the present. It’s a practice of acknowledging any regrets you may have had about the past or worries you may have about the future, accepting them without judgement and gently letting them go. 

Sometimes in our busy lives we struggle to find the time or the “right place” to relax and sink deeply into our meditation. Group meditation can be extremely powerful in this case. Meditating as a group strengthens the mana of the practice. We support each other and remember that it is OK to “fall off” our practice, because we can always start again together. 

Meditation For Peace is a monthly gathering created for you to work on cultivating your own inner peace. It is a place suitable for anyone, whether you are just starting out, have an intermittent practice or practice daily.

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.

Yoga Nidra And Sankalpa Sakti
Apr

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

Recommended text:
Yoga Nidra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati

Price:

This training module is $600, or $480 for Bronze members of Open Space Yoga.

Credits: All modules are open to all students regardless of experience. This training can be used towards your 300RYT hour Teacher Training Program.

Overstimulation and stress can dull the senses… 

and like feeling lost in a bare, empty desert, can make you feel dried out…struggling hard to navigate…because everything starts to look the same.

This feeling of dryness can manifest mentally, spiritually and physically. 

Mentally, our mind becomes fatigued and stagnant. Overtime our creative ideas start to dry up. 

Spiritually, our lack of inspiration can lead us to feeling isolated and in need for support and guidance.

Physically, our muscles get tight and our skin becomes dry and flaky. 

When this occurs, we know it is time to seek balance. 

Going on retreat is like finding an oasis in a dry, boundless desert.  

As you immerse yourself into the nourishing water you become revived, and reconnected with your own internal oasis, that has always been there all along. 

As the waters of your being begin to flow once more, new insights, creativity and knowledge return. 

We realize that we were never alone, and discover again the interconnectedness we have with all beings. 

Our bodies feel re-energized, vibrant and full of vitality. 

The lushness and fertility, that the oasis provides, reveals our true potential.

To be our most capable selves, we must continue to find our oasis in the repetitiveness of the empty desert that can sometimes be our lives. 

We invite you to come find your oasis..

with us…this October…at Desert Waters

Mineral Hot Springs:

Enjoy soaking and swimming in the nourishing mineral waters that this area is known for. Two Bunch Palms Resort offers a large swimming pool, three soaking pools and three large teak tubs filled with mineral water that flows from Miracle hill. This water, which is low in sulfur and rich in lithium is therapeutic, rejuvenating and mood enhancing.  

About lithium: Lithium is a naturally occurring salt that can be found in groundwater. It has long been prescribed to people who suffer from bipolar disorder, depression and/or are suicidal. Several studies show that lithium promotes brain health, improves mood, reduces the negative effects of stress and may also possibly reduce risk of dementia. Scientists believe lithium has the ability to strengthen and produce new neurons in the brain, and that even tiny doses have shown beneficials effects.

About The Location:

Desert Hot Springs is a town, just outside of Palm Springs, in the Coachella Valley. It is  a mecca for resorts, spas, golf courses and boutique hotels, and most famous for their natural mineral hot springs – one of the only places in the world to have both hot and cold. Fun fact, this was the first city in Southern California to allow the commercial growing of marijuana. What is known in Southern California as “Santa Ana winds”, produce hot, dry weather in the fall. These winds can go from breezy to intensely strong at times. The temperatures in October can be hot during the day getting up into the 90’s and cool down into the 60’s at night. 

Getting there:

Palm Springs International Airport – 20 min.(average)

Los Angeles International Airport – 2 ½  hours (average)

San Diego International Airport – 2 hours 20 minutes (average)

Shadow & Light: An Afternoon Of Rewarding Self-Care

Shadow & Light: An Afternoon Of Rewarding Self-Care

Yoga, Meditation & Sound Bath + Lunch at Fete

It is our belief, that every one of us hold both shadow and light. 

Soften the “armor” that has built up around your body.

Open up your body so you can shine a light on some of the shadows you may have. These shadows can be unconscious thought patterns and/or positive things about yourself, that you haven’t fully embraced yet.

This practice will celebrate the light that is already present, and possibly even highlight the forgotten, dormant shadows that are overlooked

Sarah’s asana practice will focus on opening up the heart and shoulders with backbends, hip openers and grounding postures that activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

From there, you will be invited to lay back, as Jennifer guides you through a nourishing yoga nidra meditation practice and sound bath using Tibetan singing bowls.

Immediately following the event we will walk across the street to Fete where, local chef and fellow yogi, Robynne Mai’i will prepare us a simple, yet elegant lunch prepared with local ingredients.

Asana led by Sarah McTee
