108 SUN SALUTATIONS MALA
$5 Tasting Menu / Prize Draw with Swag from Local Area Businesses

Join Garth Hewitt and the Shiva Yoga teaching team for a 108 Sun Salutations Mala.

The sun salutations are traditionally a gratitude practice, a moving meditation that says, ”thank you”. Practicing gratitude helps us to shift the mind’s perspective and let go of identification with the ego.  The sun is also the lightest and brightest thing in our world and is a symbol of the lightest and brightest part of ourselves, our inner light.  108 is a very auspicious number. One of the reasons there are 108 mala beads in a mala is that this is a very complete number, representing a full cycle. There are also 108 important Upanishadic texts in Vedanta.

This event is free to all members, students and guests!  Bring some friends!

*Suitable for all levels.

*Bring Your Yoga Mat, A Water Bottle and Your Vaccine Card. 

 

SHIVA YOGA MAHA SADHANA EVENT:
SATURDAY JUNE 11TH - 9AM-12PM 

The “best of the best” that yoga has to offer. A celebration of yoga which honors Garth’s teacher’s -- Sri Dharma Mittra, Srivatsa Ramaswami, Annie Carpenter, Dr. Larry Payne and others. This class begins with a philosophy discussion, as well as special breathing practices and cleansing techniques. Setting intentions and practicing gratitude, students move through a challenging and balanced sequence, with an emphasis on practicing concentration and surrender. Sun salutations and a challenging warmup lead to deeper inversions, backbends, spinal twists, and forward folds. Students practice going into the fire, staying present, and letting go of the distractions of the mind. There will be lots of fun partner yoga and some fun acro yoga variations. This class concludes with an extended final rest with guided yoga Nidra meditation, followed by seated concentration & meditation practices, and a special demo offering.

Free for Monthly Members. All Other Students $40. Bring Your Mat, Water Bottle. Vaccination Card.
