Cuddle Yoga with Leah Kenyon & Deborah Rosenbaum, MT
Living in Tantra – Community Tantra Education
Saturday, 7/23 from 7 pm – 8:30 pm
A safe, light-hearted space for adults to receive the therapeutic benefits of platonic touch, Cost: Love Offering Cuddle Yoga is a safe, light-hearted space for adults to exchange the therapeutic benefits of non-romantic touch. It’s specially designed for people who give, give, give, and need to recharge: mental health professionals, educators, massage therapists, parents, people in strained relationships, singles. If you need to refuel, this workshop is for you. Numerous studies show the physical and mental health benefits of touch, but many people are not getting the touch they need to stay healthy. In Cuddle Yoga you’ll experience greeting hugs and two-handed handshakes; hand, shoulder, and foot massage and back scratching; longer embraces while answering meaningful and fun questions; quiet snuggling during mindful breathing; arms-around-waist in a circle; back-to-back meditations, and the Spoon Train-lining up on the floor for a restful, comforting group snuggle.
Students who reserve ahead receive two thank you gifts from Leah and Deborah. These gifts are not available at the door: $40 off suggested donation for a 2-hour, in-home private Tantra session for singles (regular $120), and 20% off full body massage with cranio-sacral therapy (regular price $80). Living in Tantra is donation-based. Tantra is the art of using pleasure in a conscious way to awaken to the divine beings we are; it’s the practice unconditional love.

Exploration Through
Movement & Dance

Sydney Svagita Elks

Friday, 7/29 at 7:00pm

By Donation

Your body is wise. Your body knows. Your body is a divine instrument of expression.
 

This monthly movement session is one in which your body serves as your instructor. It is an invitation and opportunity to explore in movement and dance where and who you are in this particular moment in time.

To facilitate this exploration, Sydney Svagita provides a playlist of music from a variety of genres and corners of the world. The music is assembled in a way that loosely resembles a rhythm wave from the Five Rhythm tradition. You are invited to listen deeply and explore how your body responds to the music, the space and the moment.

Bring your curiosity, a sense of play, and wear comfortable clothes that you can move freely in. This is a well attended event that is great fun. Please try to be on time to get the full benefit.

Kidding Around Yoga Teacher Training
with Amanda James, E-RYT200, RCYT, PranaKriya Prenatal Certification
Saturday, October 22 9:30am-5:00pm and Sunday, October 23 9:30am-5:00pm
$650 (www.kiddingaroundyoga for available discounts)
Kidding Around Yoga, an international children’s yoga and stress management teacher training program, is excited to be in Grand Junction, teaching participants skills to improve children’s health, behavior, and lives. Kidding Around Yoga instructors share games, stories, and specially composed music to get children of all ages and abilities motivated and moving. Techniques presented during Kidding Around Yoga’s Teacher Training program build strength, flexibility, a sense of calm, and interpersonal skills in children. “Our program provides educators, parents, therapists, and coaches methods to teach Yoga and stress management techniques to children so they can find peace on the inside, regardless of what is happening around them,” says Haris Harini Lender, founder of Kidding Around Yoga. Lender developed Kidding Around Yoga to include breathing instruction, relaxation techniques, strengthening and stretching Yoga poses, and of course, imagination. According to Lender, “The magic of Kidding Around Yoga is our creativity and music.” Our blend of independent online learning (OKAY) and 2 day face-to-face intensive training is a fantastic way to learn to teach kids in only a weekend. KAY graduates have the practical knowledge to begin teaching yoga to children and families immediately, whether in a yoga studio, a rec center, or school classroom. Nothing gives us more joy than to watch our trainees sharing the gift of yoga with the children in their communities.
About Amanda Jones
Amanda James is an accidental yogi. She didn’t find yoga until after her children were born and she began looking for a way to reconnect with her breath, tame her anxiety, and feel stronger in her own body. Even after stumbling through her first yoga class, she was hooked on the positivity and energy created during practice. Amanda quickly decided that sharing such a powerful experience was her path and she graduated from her 200-hour Hatha yoga teacher training in 2007. She immediately began teaching beginner’s yoga and soon found that her own children loved to “play yoga” with her. Being an elementary and middle school teacher herself, Amanda embarked on what would become her passion – yoga for children and families. She was one of the earliest graduates from Kidding Around Yoga and immediately put it to use, volunteering to teach yoga to “at-risk” students at her children’s school and starting a popular family yoga class in her community. Amanda is such a believer in Kidding Around Yoga’s methods, music, and joyful energy that she is now a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher, the writer for KAY, as well as part of the marketing team. But her favorite professional role is that of KAY trainer, because she knows that the lessons and practices that children learn through play during a Kidding Around Yoga class can change their world. So the more KAY teachers she reaches, the more peaceful, happy children there will be for our future.
