WEDNESDAY EVENING COMMUNITY MEDITATION & YOGA NIDRA 8:30-9:00pm AT JOYA YOGA SAN RAMON

2016-sunset-bigisland-easyp

“Create your seat. Close your eyes and focus on the sound of the opening bells.” That’s how I begin our new Wednesday evening meditation sessions, in a softly lit yoga studio, meditation is signaled by the Tibetan bells, then time to still your body, soothe your nerves, and calm your mind. The meditation practice invites you to slow down and allow the experience of presence and awakening. Physiologically, meditation can lower stress, lower your blood pressure, lower your cortisol levels, slow down your heart rate, and cultivate an overall sense of well-being and peace. Just thinking about it relaxes me!

This is a community donation-based meditation “sit” at Joya Yoga San Ramon and we welcome participants of any level of meditation.

Meditation begins promptly at 8:30 and ends at 9:00. This session follows a 7pm Yin Yoga class with me, which ends at 8:15pm so a quiet transition between classes is requested. Many of the yin yoga students will already be seated in meditation before the 8:30 session begins.

The Joya Yoga San Ramon doors will open by 8:10 and will be locked by 8:30pm. Please no late arrivals for the meditation sessions. Blankets and bolsters are available for your use during meditation.

Whether you’re brand new to yoga or an experienced yogi, this heart-opening workshop is for you!

Learn how pranayama, drishti, asana, and meditation can help you manifest your intentions, bring balance into your life, increase your ability to create connections, and help you manage stress. Based on student requests after her last workshop, Amelia will focus on how to use your yoga practice to tame cravings in your life. You will leave with tools to deepen your yoga practice in class, at home, and off your mat in your daily life.

  • Be prepared for a gentle yoga practice.
  • Bring your journal.
  • Bring a friend (the more the merrier!)
  • Bring your open heart and mind.
  • Leave this workshop experiencing “aha moments” and feeling refreshed, renewed and relaxed.
  • Note for previous attendees: this workshop contains new material…it is not a repeat of previous workshops.

Testimonials from Amelia’s students:
“Your workshop was exactly what I needed right now…thank you so much!”
“I’ve heard of drishti before but, I had never really applied it to my yoga practice or thought of bringing it into my life. The drishti exercises were really impactful. Thank you!”
“Thank you for reminding me to breathe. I always forget and I appreciate how you bring breath into your teaching.”

TEACHING AT BAPTISTE YOGA SAN FRANCISCO THIS FRIDAY!

tree-goldengatebridgeWhat’s possible when you dream of teaching in a Baptiste yoga studio?  Apparently, you cry buckets after leaving your pacific northwest hometown, arrive bereft in the bay area, crave a Baptiste yoga studio, then, a year later, a Baptiste yoga studio appears in San Francisco!  I put the intention out there when I moved: “If I have to leave my beloved hometown of Port Angeles, I need to at least find a Baptiste-inspired yoga studio and teach journey into power.” That was my intention, and shortly after my arrival I began my journey to actually teaching in a bonafide Baptiste yoga studio!

Drumroll please….I.  AM.  SOOOOO.  EXCITED!!!!  Not only is there FINALLY a Baptiste partner studio in the Bay Area but, I am also TEACHING there starting this Friday! Whoa!

The setting of the Baptiste Yoga San Francisco studio is stunning, smack in the middle of the Presidio with views of the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge and Pacific Ocean amidst the classic Presidio architecture and meticulous green lawns and palm trees.  The studio itself is brand new as of November 2015 with a state of the art heating system (Baptiste yogis love us some HEAT!) and gorgeous custom mandalas and artwork on the studio walls.  It’s heaven for yogis wanting to detox during their Journey into Power vinyasa yoga classes.

Here’s my updated schedule for San Ramon and San Francisco.  Come take a class from me, or with me! Shine on, yogis!
