The question, “Why Meditate?” is a growing topic in conversation.

The simplest answer is to just be.

However, it isn’t that simple.  Life presents a paradoxical complication for humans who are a constant flow of ideas, exchanges and relationships.

Therefore, the intention to meditate holds a space for us to pause, breathe and notice that we are both being and becoming.

The great philosophical traditions present our existence as a pulsing and creative, never-ending flow of consciousness which manifests in diversity.

During our time together we will experiment with a variety of subtle and powerful contemplative techniques which will encourage a centered, calm and an expanded view of ourselves.  We will cultivate this expansion through awareness of our breath, our senses and imagination.

There will also be time for contemplative questions and conscious conversation.

All welcome including the skeptical and dubious.

Please email us at shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com with any questions.

FUNDAMENTALS SERIES 

Saturdays, May 30th, June 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th, 9:45am-10:45am ET

 
To join each week your donation must be received by 8:30am the morning of class. 

This series will be especially good for those of you who have never practiced with Elizabeth “in person” before.  Elizabeth will assist you in getting the hang of how to listen to the alignment cues and the basic sequencing/Sun Salutations.  And, of course, the classes are open to anyone who is willing to move at a slower more deliberate pace as Elizabeth does her best to serve those needing a slower place with extra details. This class takes practice one degree slower to make sure everyone is really absorbing “how” to practice without having a teacher physically model poses for you.

Unlike other series, these classes do not require commitment for the entire 5 weeks.  Therefore, you are invited to join on a weekly, donation basis like the other classes with just one simple registration caveat:  a Venmo or Zelle offering must be received by 8:30am on the same day of class in order to be admitted to the class.  This bit of structure will keep the class undoubtedly smaller than the 11am Community class which will allow for more personal attention from Elizabeth. 

If you are brand new and reluctant to join a group, please email us at shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com to set up a private lesson.  Elizabeth is willing to teach two discounted private lessons per month to help ease you into the group classes.

 

WAKING UP TO DETAILS: A CONTEMPLATIVE VIEW OF THE PRIMARY SERIES OF ASHTANGA YOGA

with Elizabeth Rossa, ALIVE + ONLINE

Sunday, June 14th 10:00am-12:30pm ET
ZOOM link: https://zoom.us/j/82465320649
A minimum of 7 reserved people and limited to 12 
Advance registration and payment via Venmo (@shriyoga) or Zelle (shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com) 48 hours prior to the workshop to reserve your spot
Suggested offering of $45

Elizabeth has been studying with Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor within the Ashtanga Yoga tradition since 2009.  Bringing all that she has learned over the last 10 years under their guidance, she will mindfully guide us through the practice, no matter what your skill level.  The series itself is a healing art form and Elizabeth has experienced her own powerful healing transformation through this practice.

If you are a long time Ashtanga practitioner, interested in learning more about the Primary Series, or looking to approach your practice in a mindful and healing way, please join us ONLINE and ALIVE in our supportive and peaceful ZOOM Room.  This smaller group workshop will be limited to 12 people so Elizabeth is able to offer everyone specific and personal guidance.  Following the lesson, there will be an optional meditation for those wishing to sit and settle themselves into deeper inquiry into our embodiment and the meditation process. 

Please email us at shriyoga@shriyoganyc.com with any questions.

REIKI FIRST DEGREE

Dates Coming Soon!

The First Degree of Reiki, commonly known as “Level 1” is the foundational training of a system of healing developed in Japan in the early 20th century. The Japanese words Rei and Ki point to a subtle, wise and healing life force energy which is natural within each of us. The system of Reiki uses an non-invasive touch which greets this natural healing force. It is an excellent self-care practice, bringing balance and vitality. Self-care is a primary focus of Reiki First Degree. When practiced regularly, Reiki has been known to transform mental, emotional and physical health to well-being.

Please note that since Reiki is neither dogmatic nor religious, it can be practiced by anyone.

Elizabeth Rossa received her Reiki Master Level from the esteemed Reiki Master Wendy Miner, who is integral in Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Integrative Medicine Department.

For yoga teachers and massage therapists, Reiki 1 can be a powerful evolution in hands-on assists and practices.

This initiation/training will be limited to a small group.
