Know & Nurture: Tools to help you redirect your attention inward. An adventure of self exploration.
There will be 5 yoga workshops over the length of the growing season, each designed to create a framework through which you can experience who you are. You will notice (without judgement) how you act/react to the yoga practices offered. This is a microcosm of your life. You will be given the opportunity to connect the way you behave in a yoga class to the rest of your life.
Each workshop will be between 75 & 90 minutes and include centering and intention setting, breath direction techniques, physical postures, resting, and meditation.
Bring a mat, and any props you have. (blocks, blankets, pillows, eye pillows, straps) Classes will be held outside, so please consider bug spray. Each workshop will include time at the conclusion of meditation to journal about your experience. Don’t forget a journal and pen.
Scroll down to register for May 7. Register for each class individually; attend any or all. Classes meet on May 7, June 4, July 9, August 6, and September 24. Class maximum is 15 participants; class will be cancelled with fewer than 7 registrants. Location for each session will be provided prior to the class.
Instructor: Vanessa Chambers, Certified Yoga Instructor.
Vanessa Chambers, CYT 500, has been a student of yoga for 19 years. She began teaching the same way so many do; by having a driving desire to share what was so powerfully transformative in her own life with as many people as possible.
Vanessa began teaching in 2008, receiving her 200 hour certification. She then went on to complete 300 hours of advanced yoga teacher training, as well receiving certificates in kid’s yoga (Yoga for Young Ones), Yoga for Seniors, and Thai Yoga. She holds a B.A. in Holistic Health.
A pandemic induced hiatus from teaching has given Vanessa an opportunity to return in a thoughtful and methodical way. Vanessa views herself as a space holder. Her intention in sharing yoga is to assist a student to see the totality of who they are with less shame, defensiveness, and fear. This must come as a function of personal yoga practice, not as an insistence from the outside. Vanessa intends to suggest and guide. She does not have answers to what you “should” do. Those are within you. Her yoga classes will help you clear out the noise so you can hear what is right for you instead of defaulting to following what is outside.
