CLEAN detox with Tracey Kirsten
Begins March 12th (5 Wednesdays)
12:30-1:45pm or 6:45-8pm
$199 + $30 for materials
Why detox? Toxicity shows up in our lives in a variety of ways, different in each person - from allergies to skin problems, digestive issues to fatigue, and even anxiety and depression. Our bodies are so overwhelmed by the constant barrage of toxins in our foods, in our environment, and in our water that it can no longer manage the deeper detoxification of which it is capable. That's where the cleanse comes in. By giving your body the break from the most common toxins and allergens and giving it the support it needs, your body is finally able to recharge on the deepest level possible and to clear out all the obstacles standing in the way of true health. The results speak for themselves - clear skin, mental focus and clarity, renewed energy, resolution of digestive issues and often, the clearing up of allergies to name a few.
The CLEAN Class meets for 5 consecutive weeks and provides you with all the information and support you need. This is a whole foods approach to cleansing in which you will learn ways of eating and lifestyle management that will serve you long after the program. And we'll have fun along the way!
The class includes the following:
*A copy of CLEAN: The Revolutionary Program to Restore the Body's Natural Ability to Heal Itself - The New York Times Bestseller by Dr. Alejandro Junger
*A specially designed manual that includes more information on detoxing, specifics on the program, recommended resources for recipes and supplements, and meditations that link body and mind to get deeper into the quantum detoxing that this program is known for
*One class with Jennifer Manley, owner and head chef at The Nutmeg Cookery, and the three-course meal that she will create specifically for us
*Full access to support from Tracey via email or phone throughout the program
*Access to Tracey's monthly newsletter filled with the latest health tips and strategies for success
This workshop will introduce you to the use of specific yoga techniques to aid in recovery from mental, physical, and spiritual trauma. We will discuss some of the effects of meditation and pranayama (yoga breathing exercises) on the brain and nervous system, and discuss which techniques are best used in specific cases and presentations. We will also address how Yoga Teachers and Mental Health Professionals can use these techniques to be more present with their students & clients, and to release stored tension and stress from their daily routine.
This Workshop is open to yoga teachers, yoga teacher trainees, mental health professionals, and anyone who is interested in using the techniques of yoga to enhance their mental and emotional well being.
Partner Yoga allows you to get deeper and more involved in a pose. It involves mirroring poses (mats facing each other doing Sun Salutations and postures), or opposite poses (one person does a forward bend, while the other does back bend). With the help of your partner, you can find more support, stability & stretch in many poses. Class is in a warm (not hot) room & is open to students of all levels. A great opportunity to experience yoga with your partner or a friend!

Kids Yoga with Jennifer
Kids ages 7-11 years
Continues through March!
Why yoga for kids?
Yoga helps improve physical, mental, and emotional health.
Yoga offers a non-competitive way for kids to get exercise.
Yoga also helps develop focus and concentration.
And finally: Kids are stressed too!
By offering yoga to children, we are providing them with tools they can use for the rest of their lives.
When I teach a kids' yoga class, I like to incorporate many of the same concepts as an adult class, but modified to be age-appropriate. We generally begin a class finding a way to connect with each other and with the larger world; we then take time to notice our breath and to work on breathing techniques and movement designed to increase our energy or to help calm down. Like an adult class, there is also a section on building mental focus but in a kids class this can involve many creative activities ranging from child-friendly meditation techniques to art projects to journaling or poetry writing. All kids yoga classes end with relaxation and I like to offer kids ways to help themselves relax not only in yoga class but in their daily lives.
