Summer Revitalize Day Retreat with Shannon Sonnier Sun, Jul 30, 2017 at 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Summer heat and activity can be depleting. Take some time to revitalize with a day of nurturing.

We will incorporate yoga, philosophy, and ayurvedic tips to help you stay balanced. Easing our way into a powerful, agni (fire element) balancing vinyasa class will create space for us to find new ways of being. Using the energy of svadhyaya (self-study) will help us release anything that is limiting us from finding balance. We will break for a nurturing vegetarian lunch that will be provided. The afternoon will be dedicated to chanting for the chakras, ayurvedic concepts and tips, restorative yoga and yoga nidra with sound therapy.

This day qualifies as 7 hours of continuing education credits for yoga teachers.

The cost is $65. The class is limited to 12 participants.

Restorative Yoga with Shannon Sonnier Sun, Aug 6, 2017 at 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures. Rest provides the body an opportunity to renew and heal. Countless studies have proven the physical and emotional benefits of this. Restorative yoga, as well as other forms of yoga, helps to trigger the Parasympathetic nervous system also known as the PNS. The PNS is responsible for balancing the body and bringing its response system back into equilibrium. Stimulating the PNS helps to lower heart rate, blood pressure; it helps to healthily stimulate the immune system and keep the endocrine system operating healthily.Fee = $15. Class size limited to 12 people.

You will discover your ayurvedic constitution and how that applies to your daily life. We will discuss basic rules that apply to everyone and each week we will incorporate a part of a daily routine.

By the end of the series we will have a full dinacharya (daily routine) to support us on our path to a healthier life.

After experiencing yoga’s powerful healing effects, Shannon knew it was part of her life’s journey to share this ancient practice with others.  Ayurveda, known as the sister science to yoga, has become a primary influence in her life and her teaching methodology.

She is an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist, which allows her to incorporate ayurvedic concepts into group classes and use the wisdom of Ayurveda to do lifestyle consulting. Shannon is also a Reiki master and a certified aromatherapist.
