What to Expect at Shakti in November:

In Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine), the seasons correspond with doshas (constitutional types), which in turn relate to the elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. Kapha corresponds to the elements of Earth and Water, Pitta with Fire, and Vata — the dosha that is currently increasing — with Air and Ether. We gain the most benefit by keeping our practice in tune with the seasons. Fall is a time of transition and just as we change our clothing to accommodate the cooler weather, we adjust our practice to help create more internal heat.
As we transition into the cool, dryness of autumn, Vata becomes elevated and sometimes, imbalanced. As a result, you may find that your joints seem less supple and more crackly. You might also find yourself feeling anxious or unable to concentrate. A Vatic imbalance can also create an erratic digestive system. A balanced Vata dosha, however, can bring inspiration, creativity, and a renewed zeal for life; this is what we focus on in our yoga practice at Shakti.
In our practice this month, we will continue to work on stabilization through standing poses, gradually building heat through slow steady movement. Once we have stoked the internal fires, we can then work on seated forward bends, as well as pelvis and hip-openers, which help to calm the frantic, Vatic chatter of the mind. We will also focus on the Muladhara Chakra, or the Root Chakra, in order creating a feeing of ground and make us feel more stable before the advent of the busy holiday season. This will also help prepare us for mediation, the practice we will be focusing on in November!

Intro to the Meditative Practices of Kriya Yoga & Yoga Nidra  with  Glenn Black 

Sunday  Jan 10, 2015     1:00 – 3:30    $40 pregistration required

In this workshop Glenn Black will guide us in an exploration of the deeper, non-physical levels of our being through the transformative practices of kriya yoga and yoga nidra meditation. We’ll learn pranayama breathing practices including complete yogic breath which relaxes the body and prepares us for yoga nidra (yogic sleep), a systematic method for moving into deeper realms of consciousness in which images and insights often arise from the dream state. This practice deeply rejuvenates the body and releases mental and emotional tension. We’ll also experiencechankramanam (yogic roving or movement), a practice of awareness and presence in all of our activities such as walking and eating. And we’ll learn a technique that enables us to access the ascending and descending internal energy pathways, arohan and awarohan, which will help us tap into our psychic abilities. Together these yogic meditation techniques form the essential foundation for the practice of Kriya Yoga,
one the the most powerful methods for awakening consciousness.

 Glenn Black, a renowned and highly respected yoga teacher with 40-plus years’ intensive study of yoga, meditation and movement began Kriya Yoga studies in the mid 1970s with the Bihar School’s Swami Vivekananda, studied with B.K.S. Iyengar in India, and is a longtime student of Swami Satyananda. Like the ancient “forest yogis,” Black has devoted years to intensive practice in solitude. He leads workshops and retreats internationally.
