Yoga

 

 

Yoga is an ancient practice that unifies the body, mind and breath while moving through a variety of physical poses. Yoga has been proven to deepen self-respect, body awareness, and enhance health, success and overall well-being.

As yoga practitioners learn how to move and breathe with control and maintain their focus, they begin to integrate the principles of flexibility, strength and balance into their practice and into their lives.

KIDS YOGA
[See below for class schedule]

Finding time for fitness, family fun, and a chance to relax can be a challenge. In family yoga they are all rolled into one.

We live in a world of hustle and bustle filled with pressures and responsibilities, running our children to play dates, lessons, and competitive sports practice. When our children live in a hurry-up world of busy parents, school pressures, and social commitments, we don't stop to take the time to think about how the busy pace can often times be harmful.

Yoga can help counterbalance these demands. When children learn techniques for self-health, relaxation, and a way to connect with themselves and others, they can navigate life's challenges with a little more ease. Yoga encourages a healthy self-esteem and body awareness that will positively impact all aspects of their emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. Give your child the gift of yoga.

A TASTE OF TANTRA

 

Heather AASECT

Learn to live blissfully. Tantra is considered to be the sexual yoga. Derived from the ancient Sanskrit language meaning "expansion through awareness" or "to weave," Tantra is the art of living consciously on all levels, including sexually. The ancient practice of Tantra shows us how to open our hearts, our emotions and our sexuality.

"Sexual energy is one of our most powerful energies for creating health," says Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom." "By using sexual energy consciously we can tap into a true source of youth and vitality."

Be empowered in and out of the bedroom by integrating Tantra into your lifestyle and get the intimacy and sex life you desire.

Heather at AASECT Conference co-presenting with Dr. Judy Kuriansky

TALK TO ME YOGA

TALK TO ME YOGA offers a unique and integrative approach to promoting physical and emotional well being. Through a combination of ancient yoga techniques, elements of body-mind education, and traditional talk therapy, TALK TO ME YOGA weaves eastern and western philosophies to encourage self-awareness and a deeper connection to yourself and others for an enhanced quality of life. You will be guided and supported in connecting with and exploring the core principles of healthy relationships, self-esteem, and positive sexuality.

The TALK TO ME YOGA class will incorporate a series of physical postures or asanas, meditation and breathing exercises. Changing the physical state of the body creates space for the stories of the past to surface so that we can begin working through them in the present. The class will also include discussion on various topics as well as anything that arises during class so that we can further encourage healing and take a step closer to our truest self.
