Esther’s Signature Workshop

 

Mindfulness in Action:

Release Overwhelm, Build Resilience

Sunday, April 23, 2017

 

  • Do you feel overwhelmed by the many issues competing for attention in the world these days?
  • Is there an aspect of your life purpose calling out to you? A deferred dream?

Many of us have heard about mindfulness as a powerful personal practice, but wonder how it connects to living out in the world. In turbulent times, it’s easy to feel pulled in many directions; we worry that hopes and dreams will slip away behind routines of everyday life.

Emerge feeling refreshed and inspired after an afternoon of skill-building, gentle movement, and community connection. You will:

  • Practice mindfulness tools for clarity, energy, and joy!
  • Assess your time, commitments, and resources
  • Identify inspired next steps to take right away
  • Release tension with a calming yoga practice

 

When: Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Time: 1:30 – 3:30 pm

Where: Healing Arts Studio, 15 West Highland Ave, Philadelphia PA 19118

Cost: $55 (at the door); $45 if registered by April 15

Down to the Bones: A Sequence of 12 Bone-Building Yoga Postures (for a mat-based practice)

This workshop is designed specifically for individuals with an interest in bone health who are comfortable on the mat with basic exposure to yoga.

SOLD OUT!

Saturday, November 19, 9:30 am – 12 noon:

Down to the Bones: A Sequence of 12 Bone-Building Yoga Postures (for a chair-to-mat practice)

This workshop is designed for individuals with an interest in bone health who prefer practicing with a chair placed on a mat. We will explore BOTH mat- and chair-based variations to adapt the postures to YOU. Some exposure to yoga (or other mind-body practices) is helpful.

Do you know that yoga stimulates bone development and helps stave off osteopenia and osteoporosis? However, not all yoga fits the bill; in fact, some postures can actually be detrimental to bone health.

Come learn a 12-posture bone-building sequence that has recently been validated through research. We will walk through each step of the sequence together, adapting with props (chair, blocks, straps, blankets, pillows…) as necessary. A short guidebook with both mat and chair versions is included.

Cost: $65 (early bird special: $55 before Nov. 5)

Click here to register for the mat-based practice. SOLD OUT!
