Y.E.S. Yogic Embodiment Series with Sofia Diaz

Co-ed Classes – Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays 7:00am – 8:30am in the Studio
Women’s Classes – Mondays & Wednesdays 9:30am – 11:00am in the Studio

These classes heighten different facets of the power of Hatha Yoga, favoring beloved states turning into vajra (clear, diamond-bright) traits and discomforts exploding into concentric circles of empowered care affecting the world by one whole-body, conscious breath.
Embodiment Technologies are the button to push in this time of imbalanced though exciting warp-speed evolution. There is no greater intelligence than the activity of heart-embodied-consciousness, there is no greater relief than understanding the unnecessary clutch of self, so easy with a few simple postures well connected and so brilliantly achieved with consistency of practice, thus ‘the slew’ of classes. If desired, and very sound upliftment from the “flying carpet” of practicing with other like-dedicated yogins and yoginis. The ride of our lives is fueled by the 10,0000 open eyes of our skin and, our heart beat – heads along only for the bliss.

Mondays 6:00pm-7:15pm in the Studio

Need to rejuvenate after a day at work? This well-rounded asana class will help you to sweat, detox, redirect old energy patterns and unfold the bodily habits that lead to aches and painful ways of being. In unfolding these habits within ourselves, we have more access to joy, light, and freedom. These classes are inspired by eleven years of dedicated study with Sofia Diaz, and within the Yoga Works tradition.

This is the only class of its kind in the area and you are all invited. Wear comfortable clothing that you can stretch in.

Embodied Posture: intro/beginners Foundation Training with Hollis Jones

Wednesdays 3:30pm – 4:30pm in the Studio

Come explore embodied posture and the confidence that comes with it in this intro to foundation training. Posture has a direct effect on our moods, and is largely influenced by our movement patterns. Foundation training uses unique bodyweight exercise and breathing awareness in a movement practice that directly counters the stagnancy of our modern lifestyle. Foundation training focuses on integrating muscle chains so our body’s muscle groups work together cohesively. This shifts the neurology of how our body aligns itself to itself and creates strength and length that precipitate an empowered embodied experience that is our birthright. This practice has something new to offer you, whether you are a fit yogi, someone who experiences chronic pain, or a professional athlete. This is a donations based class, but free to try for your first time.

Yoga Undone with Erin Keeley

Wednesdays 6:00pm-7:15pm in the Studio

“Yoga Undone”: Welcome yourself to your body with radical self acceptance. Take off your shoes, loosen your belt, come undone as you access a powerful flow state that will leave you feeling like electrified jello. Here, we are not going for purity, perfection, stillness or even necessarily balance… though you might experience some of these as an after-effect of having enjoyed messy movement, artistic expression and community connection. Our only agenda is to create more potential for intimacy in your life through specific somatic techniques that give you permission to feel and help you remove your facades, masks and inauthentic movement patterns. Class is practiced in a circle to fun beats.

Ecstatic Dance

Wednesday Nights (see below)

Eros Dance with Alicia Patterson

First Wednesdays 8:00pm – 10:00pm in the Studio

This jam will be based on improvisational / free form movement, under the guidance of facilitation. I’d love to have you join us for a good hit of dance and movement, held within a conscious container that I’ll be holding. The arc of music / sound will follow a cyclical cycle with all the natural phases of the creative process beginning with a warm up, building, hitting the peak of the climax, cool down, and resting into an end. This is a chance to explore content specific to a healthy, embodied, vibrant sexuality. The themes explored include softness, power, desire, aversion, self love, ambivalence, attraction, dominance, submission, pleasure, relationships, the experience of the senses, and more. Every month will be a different theme.

— A note about the word “dance” : This can be dancing if that’s what it is to you. The word dance is so loaded. This does not have to be dance if you don’t want it to be. It’s about a relationship with yourself in your body, within an environment that holds safety and provides music to inspire your movement. If you read this and think “I need something new, I’m curious, I like the sound of it, but I’m not sure about this dance stuff”….please join!

Embodied Relating with Danny Morris

Second and Fourth Wednesdays 8:00pm – 10:00pm in the Studio

Have you participated authentic relating events and feel frustrated that words just can not convey the expression and feeling present in your body?

Have you explored ecstatic dance events and felt a lack of connection with others? Wondering why everyone seems in their own worlds?

Embodied Relating is an experiment to explore these concerns and create a dance community interested in exploring, relationship, connection, and authentic expression.

Moving our bodies with our heads held high and eyes wide open, participating in the constant connection with others, seeing each other while not retreating into our own space. Noticing how we show up in our bodies in relationship to everyone on the dance floor, assuming nothing, welcoming everything and everyone.

Letting go of our self-conscious resistance to full expression and surrendering to the shared “we” experience of the group constantly in dynamic flow.

Explore remaining in your own personal expression while in relation to someone with a totally different energy. As well as surrendering your individual expression and meeting the other in their energy. Finding a spontaneous natural reaction of one body interacting with another.

Become the dance, drop the dancer. Find love and connection through your body.

This class will be held every other Wednesday at the Integral Center. With other dance events happening on the other Wednesdays so there will be a dance each week.

The class will include: Opening somatic meditation to become embodied, awareness techniques for moving in space with other bodies. facilitation that will push your boundaries of comfort (in a safe way) to breakthrough to new levels of freedom. Closing circle to discuss insights and appreciation for ourselves and others.
