WORK IN PROGRESS CIRCLE II

the art of alignment

FRIDAY, JANUARY 19th, 6:30-8:30 PM

Join us for an elevated conversation about the inner and outer life of alignment. How we position ourselves in our lives is everything. How we place our bodies, our minds, our energy, our practices and intentions—is the driving force of our life’s karma. Contemporary life is moving faster than we can even wrap our ancient brains around. It takes work, support, guidance, conversations and community to stay on track. We cannot do this life alone.

Deniz Orhun is an artist, visionary, coach and reiki master. She holds healing space through one-on- one sessions and group work. Her journey with the inner and outer struggles of Alopecia has led her from a space of fear and shame to reframing and redefining the social norms of what beauty and femininity is in our culture.

PRICING: $25-30 per student (sliding scale)

WIM HOF METHOD FUNDAMENTALS

saturday, FEBRUARY 3RD and saturday, MARCH 3RD, 1-5 PM

Offered on two dates, this workshop will dive into the fundamentals of the Wim Hof Method (WHM) with one of the few U.S. certified instructors. These principle techniques were developed in nature by “The Iceman” himself, Wim Hof, which he has used for over 30 years to find peace, control his mind, and achieve an unprecedented level of human performance.

For four hours, you will get hands-on training with Breathing Exercises, Cold Exposure, and Mindset/Focus--the three pillars of the Wim Hof Method. This will include a light lecture that introduces the science behind the method, how it is affecting your mind and body, and how you can use the method to your advantage. In addition, you will be moving, breathing and getting into the ice, all while having a lot of fun.

After the workshop, you will be equipped with a new set of tools, training and knowledge to upgrade your daily life. As Wim says, we all have the innate ability to be Healthy, Strong and Happy. By combining the three pillars, you will unlock a wide range of benefits including: Reduced stress, increased energy, better sleep, sharpened focus and determination, increased creativity, boosted metabolism, decreased inflammation, improved sports performance and more...

Reis Paluso is a surfer, husband, father of two young girls and an owner of two start-up businesses. He found himself searching for a way to maintain balance in life and by making a mind-body connection through the Wim Hof Method, he began on a journey of unlocking his true potential and found the capacity to dig much deeper into the things he is passionate about. He followed his heart down the path of becoming a Certified Instructor in order to share these powerful tools with the world. Reis hosts workshops, private trainings and retreats, and is based out of San Diego, California.

TAROT 101

DEMYSTIFYING THE ART OF TAROT

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH, 6:30-8:30 PM

Tarot is an ancient practice, full of rich symbolism and practical life-affirming wisdom. This two hour course will provide you with the tools necessary to facilitate and interpret tarot card readings that will support you on your path of personal growth and spiritual evolution. We will cover: A brief history, deck breakdown and nuances, the power of symbolism, trusting your intuition and basic spreads.

Cecilia was given her first Tarot deck by a friend six years ago. Not sure what it meant to use this
old divination practice, she sought mentorship with a local clairvoyant in her hometown. To this day, she uses the ancient practice of tarot as a part of her daily sadhana (or spiritual practice). “Tarot has allowed me to see the never-ending expansion of the universe and soul. It has opened me up to the importance of sacred ritual and self-healing.” Cecilia continues to regularly study with her teachers and hopes to call in fellow seekers into her community of magic.

PRICING: $25-30 per student (sliding scale)

MICRO FLOW THERAPY

AND HEALING HAND MUDRAS

SATURDAY, MARCH 17TH, 1-5 PM and SUNDAY, MARCH 18TH, 1-4 PM

Saturday: Discover how our hand poses organize and support a more aligned and powerful body posture while exploring the precision of Duncan’s “Micro Flow”, which increases awareness of correct vinyasa and incremental movement in a comprehensive way. This workshop will focus on applying powerful hand mudras to support every pose from down dog to handstand as well as preventative warm-up and therapeutic recovery sequences that support our wrists and shoulders.

Sunday: From “Base to Grace”, with an understanding of the inner thigh and seat (mula bandha) we will work on establishing a long core integration via planks, the side body, hand and forearm presses while also exploring the often lesser known upper core of the pastoral girdle (ribcage). This upper bandha activation and development will increase access to our natural ‘X’ core design, which works the complementary forces of our opposing inner rib and inner thigh muscles.

Duncan Wong grew up studying with legendary American teachers in San Francisco during the 1980's and 1990's when Vinyasa was born from the Ashtanga and Iyengar lineages. He studied intensively with Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India and went on to New York City to become a world-class teacher during the 1990's and early 2000's. He pioneered a Warrior Yoga (Vira Vinyasa) style that emphasizes intelligent stance awareness, creative modifications of challenging poses, therapeutic adjustments and hand mudras. He currently resides in Kyoto, Japan and has lived in Asia for the past decade.

PRICING: $60 for Saturday, $45 for Sunday, $95 for both workshops
