Align & Tap
with Jaime Moar and Emilie Almontes

We often hear about how important it is to live life with intention. At the beginning of a yoga class, the teacher will encourage you to set an intention for the class. But it can sometimes feel daunting and like a lot of pressure to know what intention to set and then how to pursue it.

 

In this 90-minute workshop-style class, you’ll learn about and experience the benefits of EFT tapping and enjoy a variety of all-level yoga styles, both of which will encourage you to set intentions on your mat and in your life with more clarity and ease. The yoga portion will encourage you to get out of the busyness of your head and into that deeper place of guidance inside. The tapping portion will help you overcome internal obstacles, clarify your goals, and align your actions with your deepest aspirations. By tapping into your body's energy system and harnessing the power of positive affirmations, you can enhance the effectiveness of your intention-setting process and accelerate your personal growth journey.

 

What is tapping, you may be asking?

Tapping, also known as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT),  involves gently tapping on specific meridian points on the body while focusing on emotional or physical issues. The tapping process is accompanied by verbalizing statements that acknowledge the problem being addressed, followed by affirmations of self-acceptance and positive change.

 

EFT is believed to offer several potential benefits, including:

Reducing anxiety and Emotional regulation - such as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety, and phobias.

Improving well-being and increasing self-awareness

Improving sleep and relaxation

Trauma resolution and self-empowerment

Increasing energy and enhancing cognitive function

Enhancing performance and improving focus and concentration.

Complementary to therapy

WHAT TO EXPECT

Guided meditation to help you arrive (not your typical meditation!)

Lesson on tapping

Alternate between mini-tapping sessions and mini-yoga sessions to experiment with various ways to set intentions

The Ashtanga Seated Sequence Part 1
with Valerie Vincent

Do spinal twists feel unfamiliar and breathless? Are you unsure if your forward folds support your long-term practice? Would you like to find more lift and lightness in Navasana and Purvottanasana?

 

 In this two-hour dynamic workshop, Valerie will help you discover and deepen your understanding of the seated asanas of the Ashtanga Primary series.  Focused on the first half of the seated sequence of the primary series, we will dissect each posture, offering in-depth insights into alignment and the unique properties of every pose.

This immersive experience goes beyond theoretical discussions, as we will practice each asana in-depth. You can expect collaborative discussions and practical applications,

 

We will learn the properties of a forward fold, the sitting bones and the foundation of the seated postures, tips and tricks for folding forward, working towards the binds (and most importantly, ways to deepen our seated twists) and finding more lightness in our navasana—and maybe a bit of joy, too!

 

The workshop will cover the following asanas:

Dandasana

Paschimottanasana

Purvottanasana

Ardha Baddha Padma Paschimottanasana

Triang Mukha Eka Pada Paschimottanasana

Janusirsasana A, B and C

Marichyasana A, B, C and D

Navasana

 

Bring your mat and a notepad to take notes, and wear clothes that allow you to practice freely.

 

Prepare to elevate your understanding and practice of Ashtanga Yoga.
