This weekend has something for all levels of flyers so come willing to sweat, play, and let go of some old fears!
Friday Session (7:15-9:15pm): Grow Your Inversions
Beginner: This inversions basics workshop is designed to make you comfortable to go upside down. We will discuss the fundamentals of inversions; begin with an inversion specific warm-up followed by core work, headstand A & B, forearm balance, and handstand at the wall.

Saturday Session (2:00-4:30pm): Fly Like a Yogi
Intermediate: This workshop is playful on purpose to get you out of your head and flying with ease. While staying grounded in the essential elements of alignment, we will play with creative ways of balancing away from the wall. Expect a strong Vinyasa warm-up, plenty of core-work, and lots of fun.

Sunday Session (12:00-2:35pm): Fun with Flying
Intermediate & Advanced: For the advanced yogis, this workshop will focus on slowing things down and moving exclusively from the core to control your inversions. We will discover the importance of the abdominals as we play with scorpion in forearm balance and handstand.

In this workshop we will explore inversions with a sense of adventure, curiosity and most of all fun! Inversions are for everyone and are extremely beneficial in strengthening the body and focusing the mind. We will work on the strength and flexibility needed for inversions, develop core awareness and discover proper alignement for floating and flying. We will explore headstand, forearm balance, and handstand. In addition we will explore how different variations and the use of props make inversions approachable to just about anyone!

“Bliss Mix” Partner Yoga Workshop with Angela Kukhahn and Aimee Donahue
Sat Date: 2/11/2012 From: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Price: $20

Do you enjoy getting adjustments in yoga class; for example, a nice push on your lower back in child’s pose? Have you ever noticed that with a little assistance you can often go deeper and get more enjoyment out of most yoga poses? If so, you have already experienced the benefits of partner yoga. Making friends in yoga class has many advantages outside of just having a friend to spot you in a handstand kickup in the center of the room however, it’s just plain FUN! Join Angela Kukhahn and Aimee’ Donahue for a memorable night of yoga, play, and a chance to get to know your fellow yogis a little bit better. This class is ALL levels and is part yoga class, part mixer. Come alone or bring a friend, doesn’t really matter as there will be a lot of mixing! Doing yoga poses with a partner can be a little uncomfortable at first, but also can be a great way to deepen your poses and your connection to others. Come with an open mind and a sense of play!

Operation Shanti Yoga Fundraiser Shout Out!

Teachers at The Operation Shanti FundraiserThis post is really looooooong overdue and I apologize!

I wanted to post to acknowledge the amazing-ness that transpired in March for the Operation Shanti Yoga Fundraiser! (To view a photo album of the event click HERE or click on Garth’s name to view another album on his facebook page)

My good friend and yoga teacher Garth Hewitt has taken it up the commendable task of holding yoga fundraisers to build an orphanage for underprivileged children in Mysore, India!

I feel really honored that I was one of the teachers that he chose to be a part of this event. The other incredible teachers were  Suzy Nece , Jo TastulaJulie Rader ,Genevieve Fischer , Marla Wedge , Greville Henwood
and himself Garth Hewitt.


There were also a lot of others who put in a lot of time, energy and love into the fundraiser they include  Greta Recinto-Casino (organizer) Michael Jammerz Callon (DJAlex Yogitoes (Yogitoes, and organizer) Karen Komenkul (organizer) Hale Davis (photographer) Susan Singer (Yoga Earth), Nu (organizer, … think I spelled her name wrong) and the Manduka team (donated yoga mats and goodies) and many more that I don’t know their names.

The event was amazing! We had around 85 students that came (or that is what I counted anyways) and managed to raise over $8,000.00 to go towards building a new orphanage for these adorable children!

Afterwards there was a healthy shot of vitamins from Yoga Earth (beats jagermeister any day) and then a raffle and a live auction. I want  to give a shout out to some of my wonderful and incredibly generous friends who came through with donations!

Thanks to all of my talented friends…

Josh Gil who auctioned off a dinner for 7 where he takes you to the farmers market helps you choose ingredients and then cooks for you and 7 of your lucky friends. He also gave away two tickets to Supper Liberation Front which is a Los Angeles based collective of professional chefs who offer one four-course menu for $35 at an unknown location in LA. The menu changes weekly.

Leelu Morris who contributed an all day photo shoot session. I just did my second shoot with her and she is so fantastic to shoot with!

Raffle items at the Operation Shanti Yoga Fundraiser Event

Jennifer Paquette with EV Vintage clothing, she donated several super soft yummy pieces of her clothing line. (and even gave me a piece for myself!)

Seda Aksut who gave a Reiki healing session. I am looking forward to doing a session as well one of these days!

Frank Gjata with Conscious, Ink a temporary way to wear your personal positive intentions! Here is an earlier post about Frank and what he does Get a Tattoo and Change Your Point of View

Students getting ready for some yoga at the Operation Shanti Yoga FundraiserJasper Johal contributed a beautiful piece of art, that was a popular auction item.

Robert Sturman blessed us with some of his amazing art, I gotta admit I was a little jealous of the person who went home with the praying monks!

Below I have included Garth’s contact info and link to his website if you are interested in attending, participating in and way or have an item or service you would like to contribute to the auction or raffle!

Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 12:00am

Everywhere! YA Kula Goin’ Global!!
Description:
As you may already know, we have been testing our live video streaming service for the last several weeks. This past Sunday we allowed a preview of this service for the first time, broadcasting Ally Hamilton’s class to a live audience spanning 4 continents. We also maintained a link to the recorded broadcast for those who missed it live.

This week, we are continuing our testing, and we invite you to participate in any of the following LIVE YOGA CLASSES from home via your DSL or broadband internet connection:

http://www.yogisanonymous.com/live

MONDAY April 5, 9:00AM – 10:30AM PST
Krista Cahill – “Bala’nce Yoga” – Level 2/3*

TUESDAY April 6, 6:30PM – 8:00PM PST
Brock Cahill – “Flight Club” – Level 2/3*

* Expect a highly challenging flow with plenty of arm-balancing and inversions!

WEDNESDAY April 7, 4:15PM – 5:45PM PST
Ashley Turner – “East Meets West” – All Levels

FRIDAY April 9, 2:30PM – 3:45PM PST
Charlie Samos – “Charlie’s Vinyasa Flow” – All Levels

If you are in the local LA area, please come and participate in person! I dare say there’s something oddly thrilling about knowing that if you sneeze while you’re in bakasana, people on 4 different continents might say “bless you!” (or they may applaud ;))

If you are too far away to be in the room, you can join the live group energy from wherever you are. Be a part of the OM that truly resonates across the globe!

And if you miss any of these live broadcasts, the next best thing is taking the class whenever it’s convenient for you! And as many times as you want! For FREE!

“YA Kula Goes Global!”

*** for those attending in person, please note that approximately 1/3 of the room is ON CAMERA during the broadcast, and most of the room is NOT. Meaning, you can still come and you won’t have to be a part of the broadcast if you don’t want to be. The privacy and respect of our beloved students are sacrosanct and will never be compromised.
