PRANAYAMA - Practice & Benefits
This workshop will discuss the importance of proper breathing on the mind and body. The breath is our 'life force' which nourishes our cells, quiets the mind and reduces stress induced damage at the cellular level. Several yogic techniques of breathwork (pranayama) will be introduced and practiced. Bring a sitting cushion and wear comfortable clothing. Cost is $45.00 at the door but do pre-register to insure enough handouts.
There are Sacred Ground Yoga brochures at the front desk for you to take and give to friends so look for them, CD's still a popular item especially for those wanting to do yoga at home or use as gifts for those who can't come to us-
Plans for Gurudev's visit are moving ahead and everything is coming together smoothly- we have a great location this year with plenty of room to move about and the lovely Lake Anna to walk around and sit in the grass during free time - nice job Lois! Information and registration forms will be mailed to you soon but mark your calendars for August 12-16th if you need to plan ahead-
Rudra is still taking Harmonic Touch Healing appointments for Tuesdays, Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings so give Cheryl a call 330-336-3052; he may be gone for several weeks the end of May early June to work with Yogi Desai on a workshop so don't put off making your appointment-
We just welcomed back 6 new Amrit Yoga teachers-in-training who will be certified in Level I Amrit Yoga in early fall. We are so lucky to have so many committed and wonderful teachers who will be sharing their gifts and energy throughout the greater Akron area offering classes in Fairlawn, Wooster, Medina, Canal Fulton, Doylestown, Barberton and of course Portage Lakes. We also have 2 more students who will be certified in Level II in the fall making 6 Level II advanced teachers amongst us. Wow! great job Rudra! We are all so grateful to you and your dedication to us to create and sustain this beautiful community of yoga practitioners.
Well, this is becoming a newsletter instead of an e-mail but thought it would be nice time to time to update you all on what is going on as there is lots to talk about. We are also looking at starting another book study club if you have ideas on a book you would like to suggest email Kalindi at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be sure to contact us with new e-mail addresses, home addresses and phone numbers so we don't lose contact - also if you would like to be removed from our list let us know. In the meantime, remember to Breathe deep, Love your Self well, Reach out to someone estranged from you, and Don't resist the energy!
