2-Part Series: Learning The Lens of the Koshas & Intro to Yoga

Nidra for Yoga Teachers, w/ Anna Molgard

Learning the Lens of the Koshas is a pre-requisite for Intro to Yoga Nidra. (Yoga Alliance CEU's will be provided for these workshops.)


February 23, Part 1: Learning the Lens of the Koshas

The pancha maya kosha model of the body is the foundation of yoga therapy. In this workshop we will learn these layers of experience and how they impact our daily lives and our yoga practice. Through the repetition of a simple asana practice, we will explore various methods to teach yoga to access each layer or kosha of the body. We will begin with a physically oriented practice then move to a focus on the breath. We will then sense how yoga can help access the thoughts and emotions, the inner wisdom, and then finally a sense of deep connection to self. If you’re feeling stuck in your sequencing, language or personal practice, this is the workshop for you!


March 23, Part 2: Intro to Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is the ancient practice of a specific practice of guided meditation designed to bring the body / mind / spirit into a deep state of rest. This workshop will give the foundations of the practice of yoga nidra through the lens of the koshas. Participants will then experience the yoga nidra practice, be guided to analyze their experiences and practice leading yoga nidra with a provided script that can be utilized in the classroom setting. We will discuss guidelines for responsible teaching and practice of this meditation and provide resource references to explore further, more formal training in this methodology.

Embodying Abundance

Yoga & Your Financial Life w/ Diane Sherman

Creating an abundant life begins with our thoughts. As yogis, part of our practice is self-study (Swadhyaya). In order to move towards fully realizing ourselves and manifesting the lives we want, we must know our stumbling blocks and limiting beliefs so we can move past them.

This 8-week series will be a deep study of your relationship to creating ABUNDANCE in your life. We will look at core values and beliefs around money and resources and learn techniques to change your beliefs.

Each week there will be tangible exercises for you to do to understand how you have looked at money in the past, to evaluate what you really want in your life right now, and how to begin to get a strong handle on taking control of your finances to create the life you envision.

We will also practice asana and meditation to stabilize the Root chakra (Muladhara). We can create the lives we want. We need to stretch ourselves past our comfort zones in order craft our dream life.

All students welcome (limited to 20), please reserve your space.

Location: Harmony Yoga, 1717 W. 6th, Spokane

The intention of this evening is to open ritual space to honor our own inner light, while not turning away from our own darkness, but to make space for ALL parts of ourselves.
