Full Moon Dream: Summer Soothe Yoga Dance
August 23, 2013
This experience begins with feel-good yoga warm-ups to energize the body and mind. We will focus on grounding energy considering the strong gravitational pull of the full moon. Listening to the inner rhythm of the breath and the music as guides, we’ll move fluidly from warm-ups into standing. Here there will be some guided movement inquiries led. Eventually we’ll move into a free-form prana-flow. Though it may be tough to imagine now, you’ll find yourself in an intuitive movement meditation, liberating the creative life-force, prana. This is followed by an ambient savasana to integrate. Dynamically enhance your range of motion, break through physical and energetic blockages, boost cardiovascular strength, and create a more positive relationship with your body while you open your mind and heart. This is not a technical dance. There is no choreography, rather an experience in listening and letting go, a meditation in motion.
New Class! Hot Slow Flow with Jane Jarecki Lanza
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9-10:15 am at Laughing River Yoga
This class begins the week of May 20, 2013
This warm loving class weaves together breath and movement through a calm, sweet flow practice. While this class is a slower pace than regular Vinyasa, it will still challenge and inspire you to deepen your practice. This class consists of Sun Salutates, standing poses, balancing postures, twists, basic inversions, and always ends with a deep, relaxing savasana.
Slow Flow is perfect for students who want to learn more about the poses (asanas), explore breath work and meditation, or just slow down and deepen into their practice. Emphasis is given to aligning breath and movement, slowing down and paying attention, and relaxing into your own body. This takes place in a heated room which will enhance detoxification, stimulate the glandular systems, and challenging the cardiovascular system while we cultivate strength, flexibility, and balance through the yoga postures and flows. This class is appropriate for beginners and more experienced students alike.

The surroundings of Dreaming Mountain, our yoga sessions, the body-work you will receive, and the nourishing food will leave you with a deep sense of rejuvenation and connection.
Fall Equinox is balance point when day and night are the same length. This is a sacred time to gather for the purpose of turning energy inward and cultivating balance.
Before heading into the Yin stage of Winter where darkness prevails, the Earth is balanced between two extremes: the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, and the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year.
