Bhakti Flow Workshop
Sat, Feb 25, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Bhakti flow combines aspects of love, compassion and healing with the grace of vinyasa flow yoga. This workshop will not only stretch your body and your breath but will also stretch your heart by inviting you to move beyond the physical aspects of the practice and experience the asanas on an emotional level. The workshop will begin with a short talk, which will introduce Bhakti yoga along with a theme. This theme will be woven throughout the workshop. We will then have a 90 minute asana practice with specially selected music which will enhance the theme and energy of the class. We will incorporate universal mantras through Kirtan (singing together) – at the close of the class. This workshop will challenge you to let go of anything in your life that feels stagnate, it will empower you to create the life you desire by asking you to embrace the truth of who you are. The workshop will seek to provide a space for you to explore your yoga practice on a deeper more personal level in an effort to encourage you to live your life to its highest potential.
Cost is $30. You can pay online or at the Front Desk.

40 Days of Yoga, Meditation and Mindful Eating that will change your life!
In the 40 Days to Personal Revolution Program, Baron Baptiste -- one of the world's most beloved master yoga teachers -- inspires us to transform more than body and mind: He gives us the tools we need to set ourselves free to live the healthful life we've always imagined. In these 40 days you will create a whole new way of being and living. Tapping ancient wisdom and his own personal experience, Baron has created a relevant and completely practical program that will lead you to the clarity of mind, body, and spirit that awaits on the other side of your revolution.
You will start to see transformations that happen naturally. You will lose weight, if that is what needs to happen; you will become less reactive and more calm; your bad habits will start to release their grip on you. You will discover, as I did, that external changes happen when we adjust the inner workings of our minds - when we adopt a philosophical foundation that gives our growth greater purpose and meaning.
Why 40 days? Because the number 40 holds tremendous spiritual significance in the realm of transformation. Jesus wandered in the desert for 40 days in order to experience purification, and come to a greater understanding of himself and his mission. Moses and his people travelled through the desert for 40 years before arriving at their home in the holy land. Noah preserved the sacredness of life by sailing his ark for 40 days and 40 nights. According to the Kabbalah, the ancient Jewish mystical text, it takes 40 days to ingrain any new way of being into our system, and that is what we are aiming to do here: wipe out the old and welcome the new.
In 40 days, you can shift into a whole new way of living and being.
This program is led by two Southern Om instructors, Lindsay Moore and Sarah Beattie, with a few guest appearances.
Each week includes:
• A yoga practice to do every day • Sunday meetings to discuss assigned readings • Principals to cleanse your diet • Instructions to begin and deepen a meditation practice • Excavation questions to root out limiting beliefs and patterns • Celebration April 2nd!!!
Cost of Program:
Includes UNLIMITED yoga at Southern Om for all six weeks of the program, 40 Days to Personal Revolution book by Baron Baptiste, Notebook with Handouts and six Sunday group meetings plus a kick off meeting.
Bringing the Moon on the Mat
Sat, Mar 11, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Have you ever felt off for a few days and someone points out it is a full moon and you can't help but think "why would that effect me?" Maryanne Abdulhadi, our Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, will let you know the moon cycle just about every time she teaches. But why? Why is the moon incorporated into the yoga practice?
This workshop will dive into the moon cycle and its place on the yoga mat, how it effects us off the mat, guided Moon Salutations, and you will leave with the Moon Calendar for this year. This is a workshop for the new practitioner to the weathered practitioner.
All levels, genders, and ages welcome! Bring a yoga mat and an open mind.
