STRETCH FLOW YOGA-Regain Your Freedom of Movement
Prepare to "Regain Your Freedom of Movement". A Stretch-Focused Yoga class that gives you 90 minutes of pure endorphin bliss. This all-levels, non-heated stretch class, formerly known as Campbell Flex Stretch Revolution, was created by Wayne Campbell. This is the class if you want to greatly reduce or completely eliminate chronic pain and tightness in your body. Unlock the tomb of tightness with movement-based, resistance, dynamic stretches that are unique and practical. Feel 30 years younger.
In this session, you will access a vigorous, all-levels (asana) practice as expressed through a proposed definition of integrity - literally, examining what works and doesn't work based your present somatic experience. Dan will also present elements of functional anatomy to deepen and enhance the integrity of your asana and breath (pranayama) practice. This seminar is ideal for yoga students, yoga teachers and movement enthusiasts looking to redesign and shake up the way they move and breathe. For existing teachers, this training will enable you to design a personal practice that informs your teaching AND gives you an edge different from anything you’ve been doing.
Through this session, you will be empowered to design your personal template for an embodied, unconstrained and whole practice - on and off of the mat. His intention is to empower you with new found levels of strength, self-expression, quality of movement and breath, and longevity in your personal asana practice.
This class will consist in opening up seven doorways to find freedom in your body and mind.
Using a flowing series of postures to create heat within your body, you will increase strength, flexibility, endurance and balance. You will be guided through the flow, once the flows are set you will have freedom to move at your own pace, moving to the rhythm of your breathe.
Following the class we will learn to create sequences and transitions that make sense for the movement in the body in proper way. Helping avid practitioners and yoga teachers build their own flows.
Learn to relate with ourselves by journeying into grace, using gong meditation, percussion, and flow yoga as a warm up. Then we will journey into relating with each other using practices that help us connect at the deepest level of our being and build the prefrontal cortex.
What is Rootism?
As we evolve, we peel away the layers of illusion stemmed by maturity and the teachings from life experiences. If you study and inquire enough, you may find that you begin to see common threads from ancient groundwork linked to modern teachings. You may have even sensed unity at some point. That is what is beautiful about life - there are multiple levels of exploration unique within each of us. Each layer can reveal a different angle, new areas of focus for growth or potential driven from the main spirit channel – the heart - keeper of our spark.
The Path of Oneness forks many roads & there are infinite possibilities we choose from along the way. We will learn from our experiences.
These learnings ground the ROOTS of our being with deep self-awareness. When we identify and tap into the roots of our beliefs and how we share the hero's journey, we become closer to the truth we seek.
Rootism is the belief that the truth is all around us, just hidden sometimes like a gem in the rough. It is our greatest task to polish and refine new meaning from what we have learned to create a greater vision for ourselves. Jung felt that we leave consciousness, a representation of the root chakra, and eventually delve into the second chakra to explore the unknown in order to face the "monster" and be consumed by it so that a rebirth can happen. We need courage to face the unknown. It takes courage to surrender to the monster, the dark aspect of ourselves.
The first step toward awakening is to explore the roots of all things with great awareness, eyes wide open, to find at the breakthrough, the Phoenix emerges, and our highest Self applauds our new discovery like a happily awaiting friend.
Ultimately there is only ONE truth. It's universal. Unveiling it is the Soul's journey.
Topic: Yoga for metabolic syndrome – Research and Practice
Presenter: Smitha Mallaiah, MS
Description: Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke. The syndrome is so named because its interrelated maladies—abdominal obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, and insulin resistance—are handcuffed to the body’s metabolism. A person who has three or more of these is considered to have the syndrome. The American Heart Association estimates that 50 million Americans suffer from it, and the number is growing in lockstep with the country’s waistlines. The rising yoga research shows yoga as a very promising practice to manage/cure this malady. Join Smitha Mallaiah for a presentation to learn the background, research and yogic prescription for Metabolic disorders.

Born into a musical family in Aleppo, Syria in 1931, double bass soloist and pedagogue François Rabbath worked in Beirut, Lebanon before emigrating to Paris in the 1950s. His musical career as a self-taught double bassist encompasses the recording studio, jazz café, opera house, and recital stage. Rabbath composed Poucha-Dass in 1968. The Indian Raga system inspired him to compose a piece in which the double bass imitates the distinctive sound of two plucked stringed instruments: the sitar, a melodic instrument with movable frets, and the tanpura, whose open strings provide a drone accompaniment in Hindu music. Throughout Poucha-Dass, the bassist plays against the normal physical aspects of handling the bow by increasing the speed of the arm and by reducing its weight, all while moving the bow close to the bridge to play sul ponticello in order to obtain the high overtones of the low fundamental notes. Poucha-Dass begins with calm, meditative music before transitioning to a driving polyrhythmic dance that intensifies inexorably until its final ascent.
Rabbath recorded Poucha-Dass in two different CDs on MN label « Multibasse » and «François Rabbath: Live Around the World. » Liben Music Publishers originally published Poucha-Dass in 1979 in « Solos for the Double Bassist. » In 2012, the French publisher « Leduc » released the current expanded version of the piece in the fourth volume of the New Technique for the Double Bass by François Rabbath.
a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.
As yogis, we live, love, and practice to explore and build connection with ourselves. But when we practice together, we build that same connection with each other by creating energy and space together. In doing this, we lift each other up and unite as one strong whole spirit! #GoddessesUnite
You can expect a collective flow that will build the connection that we create in practice with each other. The idea of this class is to use our practice to create and build unity with ourselves and the community, sharing more love and light in our world. Bring your best friend, or come join the community and connect with more empowered yogis like you! We are so pleased that we will be having Anthony Rodriguez (Arexpressions) providing the tunes for our event!
