Restorative Yoga with Shannon Sonnier Sun, Jun 4, 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.
Pre-registration required to reserve your spot.

Kundalini Yoga & Kirtan w/Bill and Ashana with Staff Teacher Sat, Jun 24, 2017 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Bill Savage & Ashana Sophia Return with
"Ancestral Dialogues - How We Become Who We Are".

This three-hour workshop will support us to balance the polarities of being human, by drawing on the power of recognizing with compassion how our stories are inseparable from those of people who have come before and will follow us.

We will experience the effects of a clear, open and flowing relationship with ourselves, our intuition and others, sensing a superhuman power to enable us to be healthy and grounded even as we experience a weightlessness of being that keeps us connected to all. Our practices of Kundalini Yoga and chanting will be inspired by
Ashana’s music and William’s gong playing.

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is a yoga of awareness and energy. The practice
includes mantra (chanting and music), pranayama (breathing), mudra (hand gestures), bandha
(body locks), asana (body postures), savasana (relaxation) and dhyana (meditation).

At age 12, Ashana Sophia was accepted to study with passionate teacher Luís García Renart, a renowned student of Pablo Casal's. Later, she went to Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Massachusetts, where
at 16, she spent an inspirational week, reconnecting with community living and beginning her practice and study of yoga. At Kripalu, Ashana learned about Bhakti Yoga, and realized that devotion and romance for the divine are the path of her heart and music. A decade later, Ram Dass helped reveal the perfection of Ashana’s decision to choose thepath of devotional music rather than the life of  a full-time classical musician.

Born in Monroe, Louisiana, in 1960, William Savage was raised mostly in the Marshall Islands in the Central Pacific Ocean, with time also spent inLouisiana, Hawai’i and Saudi  Arabia. After living in Thailand for 18 years
and Cambodia for one, in 2008 William moved home to Louisiana, living for two years in New Orleans before settling down among his extended family in rural Morehouse Parish. Having practiced Hatha Yoga and
Mindfulness Meditation for many years, when William came to Kundalini Yoga, he sensed that it enabled all of his spiritual practices to interweave and become more whole.

Cost is $40 or early bird registration of $35 by June 17.
