Guided Meditation Series

June 5th-July 10th
Instructor: Nicole Stumpf
@ Keuka Peaceful Roots- Hammondsport, NY

Beginning is often the hardest part of any endeavor. Join Nicole in this 6-week series to explore meditation techniques from around the world and jumpstart your own meditation practice. 

Studies at Harvard University found that just eight weeks of meditation rebuilds the gray matter of your brain that supports learning and memory. The National Institute of Health has written that meditation increases activity in the parasympathetic nervous system, which is associated with a state of relaxation. A study at the University of Wisconsin in Madison found that “mindfulness meditation” improves both our mood and the strength of our immune system. There are dozens more scientific and peer-reviewed studies that agree: meditation can change your life for the better.

Exploring the Throat Chakra
Jun

11:00 AM11:00

Exploring the Throat Chakra

When we are in energetic alignment at the level of the throat chakra, we have access to conscious presence, patience, steadiness of mind for self-study, and ultimately, wisdom and bliss. 

While these qualities are ALWAYS available to each of us, the stress, abuses, and trauma we experience as we journey through the life can make these states a challenge to access. 

Imbalance at the level of the throat chakra can manifest as feelings of fragmentation, despair, and unhappiness.  That feeling of being on an emotional rollercoaster is an expression of an imbalance at this level of our being.  These challenges can also present themselves at the level of the physical body as a sore throat, tonsillitis, neck pain, thyroid problems, hearing problems and metabolic disorders. 

In this workshop, we will learn to attune to this sacred energy center within our throat through meditation, asana, and breathing exercises.  We will also discuss other healing tools and foods we can weave into our life to support our healing journey. 

All are welcome! No experience with Yoga is necessary.

Exploring the Heart Chakra

@ Keuka Peaceful Roots
49 Shethar Street, Hammondsport, NY

When we are in energetic alignment at the level of the heart chakra, we have access to open-heartedness, trust, gratitude, compassion, forgiveness, connectedness, generosity, cheerfulness, the ability appreciate of beauty and celebrate, a sense of awe and unconditional love. These are all qualities of a radiant and balanced heart chakra.

While these qualities are available to each of us, the stress, abuses, and trauma we experience as we journey through the life can make these states of being a challenge to connect with. When we are wounded, we might experience this energy center as deficient or excessive. This can lead to feelings of hard-heartedness, distrust, resentment, loneliness and sadness to name a few. These challenges can manifest at the level of the mind as depression, anxiety and fear of closeness, as well as at the level of the body, as breathing problems, heart disease, high blood pressure and chest pain.

In this workshop, we will learn to attune to this sacred energy center within our chest, contemplate the ways in which we may have been wounded in the past, and explore ways to find health, healing, and wholeness in the present moment through meditation, breathing exercises and yoga postures.

All are welcome! No experience with Yoga is necessary.

Arm Balances w/ Peter & Nicole
Apr

11:30 AM11:30

Arm Balances w/ Peter & Nicole

Join Kripalu Yoga Instructors Peter & Nicole for a 2-hour workshop exploring balance, strength, creativity, and fun in yoga arm balances. The postures we plan to examine and practice include:

Crow (Bakasana)

Revolved Crow (Parsva Bakasana)

Firefly (Titthibhasana)

Feathered Peacock Pose (Pincha Mayurasana)

& 8-Angled Pose (Ashtavakrasana)

In this workshop, we will first warm up with a vinyasa sequence to prepare the body for the more complex postures. Then, we will deconstruct the select yoga asanas into key alignment elements to understand how the joints are aligned and which muscles should be contracting and which should be lengthening. Finally, we'll practice tying them all together for the finished pose.

Even if you are unable to find the fullest expression of the posture in the workshop, you will be able to identify exactly where you can build strength or invite flexibility in order to practice the pose safely.

The joy, of course, is in the practice, not the perfection, of the postures.

Cost: $20
