New Class! Evening Hatha with Erin Christie

Thursdays 5:15-6:15

This is a progressive hatha-style class for all levels. Hatha yoga refers to the willful combination of postures and breath work so that energy can flow freely throughout the body. Postures and flows are tailored to cultivate awareness of bone and muscle to achieve strength and flexibility. Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present. Restorative poses are used frequently to help students decompress from the chaotic world and to manage stress in their lives.

Erin was first introduced to yoga over ten years ago as part of a physical therapy plan while recovering from an injury. She received her formal teacher training here in Grand Junction at the Academy of Yoga in 2012 and is RYT200 certified with the Yoga Alliance. Erin has been teaching at Vine Yoga over the past year and teaches a class in Palisade for chronic pain sufferers. Erin centers her personal yoga practice around the fluctuations of life, using it as a tool to relieve mental and physical ailments. This is the philosophy she brings to her students and classes as well. Erin’s practice focuses on using yoga to reduce the affects of debilitating medical conditions on the body. She believes that yoga can bring peace to one’s life by detaching them from the over-stimulating world while simultaneously bringing awareness to their inner self through breathe and poses.

UNACCEPTABLE LEVELS – A MOVIE

A Story About the Chemicals in our Bodies, How they got There and What We Can Do About it 

Saturday, August 30 7pm – 9pm

Suggested Donation: $5

Unacceptable Levels is a 2013 documentary film about the widespread use of artificial chemicals and their effects on the natural environment and on human health. Unaccpetable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940’s through the eyes of an affable filmmaker, Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife were raising their children. To create this exclusive debut, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the field of science, advocacy and law.

Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us. Over 80,000 chemicals flow through our system of commerce, and many are going straight into our bodies. Even our unborn children are affected. Due to this constant exposure, we have approximately 200 synthetic industrial chemicals interacting with our cells every single day. Until recently, modern science really didn’t understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that is changing.

Globally, disease rates are on the rise. Theories about the causes abound, yet the issues are complex and often muddied by the maneuvering of political and corporate interests. To explore different facets of common chemical exposure, Unacceptable Levels, was made in consultation with experts in multiple fields and is guided by a father on a personal journey as he attempts to bring these issues to light for everyone. Its primary goal? To determine whether we can prevent disease before it strikes us. Unacceptable Levels opens the door to conversations about the chemical burden our bodies carry so that we can make informed decisions now and in the future. The film poses challenges to our companies, our government, and our society to do something about a nearly-unseen threat with the inspired knowledge that small changes can generate a massive impact.

Do You Eat to Live or Live to Eat?

Sunday, August 31st 7-8pm

This workshop is for people who feel like they spend way too much time thinking about food and/or their body. You can expect: group discussion, guided meditation, pragmatic tools for change and space for Q&A.

Bring your burning questions and your deep desire for a totally different possibility with food and your body! What would it be like to have peace in this area of your life?

The Dance of the Ancient One

with Anthony Bogart

September 26-29, 2014

During this weekend workshop we will be searching for that special, free mind-body feeling of space-time dreaming, what the yogis call the Higher Self. The Tibetan goddess dakini Khandroma is poetically called “sky walker. We will try to embody the dance of that “Ancient One”, our own dakini through unwinding the body and exploring inner body movements in the asanas. Meditation, pranayama and contact improv dance will deepen our process.

Fri 7-9pm - Unwinding with breath,restful floor work and meditation. Make space in your body and your awareness. Let go of routines and habits of movement and relax into a creative and healing state of being.

Sat 10-1 – open your hips, free your mind.In yoga, the intelligence is is spread throughout your body, not only in the head. Inner body movement, visualizationand some partner workwill open your body from the inside out. Small unpredictable internal movements gently unlock unconscious patterns spontaneously.

Sat 3-5 pm - Yoga seen as a relationship invites us to receive energy from the earth, circulate it through the body and return it to the earth. We will explore mindful, respectful giving and receiving in standing poses, backbends and inversion. 

Sunday 10-1 - Movement, dance and yoga combine to create an opening for the wisdom of the ancient one to dance through you as you. We will explore a fusion of contact improvisational dance and yoga.Enjoy  playful , expressive movement in a safe and mindful environment.

Uniting the Sun and the Moon Kundalini Workshop with Adriane Wolf

Guest Lecture on Friday, 10/17 from 7-8:30pm – Suggested Donation $5 – $15 Workshop on Saturday, 10/18 1-5pm  Cost: $55

This is a very powerful workshop focusing on healing and balancing the masculine and feminine energies. As we awaken and open further a hunger awakens with it for Union. This desire for Union may show up in the desire for a sacred relationship, a desire to unite the world, families or our communities in peace, or simply the desire for peace in the self. As Is Above So Is Below, we begin with healing and uniting the polarities with ourselves. Whether we are physically Female or Male we carry both aspects within us. Those aspects are wanting to be healed and united in ourselves, in this way we begin to also unite the Heavens  with the Earth. In this workshop we will journey into these divine aspects of ourselves and begin the coming together of the whole. We will be using Kundalini Yoga, Shamanic Journey, Meditation, Pranayama, Mantra, Sound Work and deep sharing. Beginners are welcome.
