𝟰𝟬 𝗗𝗮𝘆 𝗪𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗥𝗲𝘀𝘁 & 𝗥𝗲𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗴𝗲

❄️ With @brandyberlinyoga 

❄️ Tuesdays • February 8 - March 22

❄️ 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM on Zoom

❄️ $40 + yoga pass

 

40 Days regularly includes meditation, dietary principles, and personal reflection. This time, instead of a regimented Power Flow schedule, attendees are encouraged to do whatever style of yoga they like to fulfill weekly requirements, including yin.

 

And here’s where we’re really switching things up… Instead of a 75-minute meeting made up entirely of small group discussion and inquiry, our weekly meetings will be a combination of floor-based yin, breathwork, meditation, and a little discussion. We’ll also be learning Ayurvedic principles and practices appropriate for the season.

 

Take it down a notch with us, and build yourself a solid foundation from which you can tend to yourself lovingly 💕, live with presence 🧘🏼, and grow from a place of steady easefulness 🌱.

Education + Play is Brandy’s jam, and you’re bound to learn a bunch while getting good and sweaty and a little (or a lot) silly. And then comes yin. 🤤 Juicy, sweet stillness and long holds stretch your connective tissues and round out this class for a perfect Friday night.

2022 CMC JD Healing Flow Class Series (1).png

We’ve got a special lunchtime treat to help you ease into 2022. 

 

Healing Flow is a nourishing offering that invites you to slow down and feel. When we take the time to feel, we actually give the body the opportunity to heal. So we take a softer approach and purposefully engage underused muscles to create integrity in the body, move energy and attention, and feel all there is to feel.

2022 Chakras Through Yin Yoga - flier (Instagram Post) 2.png

We’ve professed our love for the chakras once or twice. 🌹 We’ve also professed our love for yin about a million times. 💐 So imagine our excitement when Brandy announced that she is bundling our two little loves into one dreamy offering…

If you’ve yet to fall under a similar spell, this is your opportunity to be enchanted. And if you’re already on the chakra/yin loveboat, well, cozy in for a good time, comrade.

 

In this workshop, Brandy will introduce you to the seven chakras 🤝 and guide you through a juicy yin practice where you’ll get to explore and interact with each one. Every yin pose will be accompanied by a song that evokes the energy of that chakra — and if that isn’t the sweetest cherry on top, we don’t know what is. 🍒


It’s gonna be magical, y’all, and ya don’t wanna miss it. It could very well turn into a lifelong love story. ❤️

We’re pretty darn grateful mental health is less of a taboo topic than it used to be. ‘Cause we’ve all got our challenges, and we all get to talk openly and be supported in this life.

 

It might have taken some of us a goodly amount of time to reach a point where being ourselves and speaking about hardships felt okay, and it might have taken even longer to find an accepting community. But we’re here now, and we’re claiming it for ourselves.

 

That’s why we’re so passionate about our next offering. Namaspa’s co-founder Nancy Lumpkin (CYT 500) has paired up with Savanna DeLuca, Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), to co-create our upcoming Wellness Series: Connection & Mental Health.

 

Starting February 3rd, you’re invited to participate in a six-week series that will support you through weekly discussions, breathing techniques, gentle yoga, and guided meditation to fight winter blues and increase well-being.

2022 IG Teen Yoga Series.png

It’s tough being a teenager in the best of times, and there’s no denying the last 20 months have been anything but the best of times. It’s been rough for everyone.

 

Most adults have felt anxious, stressed, lonely, angry, and overwhelmed, and our teens have been in the same crumby boat. 😕 While we can’t always make it better, we can provide tools to support our youth as they navigate this rollercoaster.

Deven Sisler is offering this month-long series to give teenagers new pathways to relaxation via breathwork and movement. She’ll be weaving in content about accepting yourself exactly as you are and supporting participants as they build routines to help them deal with school, sports, friends, sleep, and all the life things.

IG AD  YOGA NIDRA TT (2).png

Of all the forms that yoga takes, Yoga Nidra (also known as yogic sleep) is without a doubt the one with the biggest chill factor. 💆 It’s an immensely powerful relaxation technique and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain.

 

Yoga Nidra requires you to simply lie down and listen. Through mindful breathing and guided meditation, you’ll drift into a state of deep release and complete awareness… all while marinating in the sweet stillness of savasana. 

 

Sounds pretty dreamy, yeah? 😌 If you can resist completely conking out, it’s a pretty righteous experience, and we’re excited for you to see for yourself.

IGShift your Vision with INVERSIONS Workshop.png

In all their Instagrammable glory, inversions are like the megayachts of the yoga world. 🛥 They’re super impressive, envy-inducing, and they can feel pretty unattainable to “regular” folks.

 

Well, let’s shift our vision around that, shall we? 🙃

 

Whether you’re brand new to upside-down world or an experienced headstander, our upcoming workshop will offer tips and tricks to take your inversion practice to the next level. 🤸‍♀️🤸🤸‍♂️

🙃 With Suzie Newcome

After an invigorating warm-up flow, Suzie will break down the components of inverted poses and show you how to achieve them in a safe, supported way. ✨ From the top of your head to your little piggly wigglies, you will discover how to engage your body with integrity while learning how to fly.

If you've spent any time at all in the yogasphere, you've no doubt heard the word 'Ayurveda' at some point. But what exactly IS Ayurveda? 🧐

 

Meaning "knowledge of life" in Sanskrit, Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems. It's also considered the sister science of yoga! 👯‍♀️

 

Both yoga and Ayurveda offer ways to heal, cleanse, and rejuvenate the body, mind, and spirit. If you are an avid yogi but still struggle with weight gain, chronic pain, autoimmune issues, and/or general well-being, Ayurveda might be the key 🗝 to unlocking your return to vitality.

 

The practices of Ayurveda work to harmonize everyday life with the rhythms of nature. 🍃 Your individual qualities determine your Ayurvedic regimen, which creates a personalized approach to finding and maintaining balance. ⚖️ And when we find balance, we find health!

 

If this snapshot piqued your interest, join us for an introduction to this ancient practice and discover how it can empower you on your path to total wellness:
