Foundational Principle for January:
Present Moment Awareness

 

Present Moment Awareness is the most foundational and essential of all the practices. The present moment is where all the beauty, melody, flavor, fragrance and pleasure of life exist. This is where life is unfolding. It’s the only place where we can experience true joy and it’s the only place where we can make conscious choices. Present moment awareness is the doorway to freedom, gratitude, love and creative power.

12 Sacred Principles to Illuminate Your Journey On and Off the Mat.

Sol Path Yoga is a unique form of yoga that focuses on twelve foundational principles that support practitioners on and off the mat. Each class is choreographed with care to effectively support your journey of wellbeing and personal growth. You will find the experience to be an uplifting blend of movement, postures, alignment, breath-work, and guided meditation…lovingly woven together with words of inspiration. Each month we explore, practice and reflect on one of twelve foundational principles: Present Moment Awareness, Love, Truth, Abundance, Balance, Liberation, Clarity, Contentment, Inner Fire, Self-understanding, Trust and Celebration. Each principle teaches a skill set that deepens the practitioner’s awareness so they may take their insights off the mat and live from a place of greater illumination and empowerment.

Head to Chara.tv for more information about Chara, Sol Path Yoga, and all 12 Foundational Principles.

Now Every Wednesday
10:30am - 11:45am
 

 
Join Julie Shaw for this nourishing style of yoga!

Viniyoga™ is an authentic transmission of the teachings of yoga, including āsana (postures), prāṇāyāma (breath work), chanting/mantra, meditation, and personal ritual.*  These yoga tools are adapted to meet the unique condition, needs and interests of each student. In this way, each practitioner has the opportunity to individualize and actualize her/his self-discovery and personal transformation. The emphasis in a Viniyoga class is on “the person, not the poses.” If you are looking to deepen your practice with authentic teachings, please give Viniyoga a try.
 
(*Gary Kraftsow, MA, E-RYT 550, C-IAYT, evolved the Viniyoga™ approach to yoga from the teachings transmitted by T. Krishnamacharya and T.K. V. Desikachar of Madras, India.)
 
No previous experience required.  All are welcome.

Regular Class Fee: $20   Register Online Here   (regular yoga packages may be used) 
 
Julie has 30 years experience practicing and teaching yoga. Her classes are for every body and every experience level, integrating breath, movement and awareness in the service of greater self-knowledge.  Among her other yoga teaching certifications, she is a Certified Yoga Therapist in the Viniyoga™ Tradition.
