Workshop Wednesdays: Chakra Balancing Yoga Series @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Apr 3 @ 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm

Chakra Balancing Yoga Series: 6th and 7th Chakra

“A chakra is a center of organization that receives, assimilates, and expresses life force energy. Chakra translates to “wheel” or “disc” and any vortex of activity can be called a chakra. The chakra system is a seven-leveled philosophical model of the universe. In the West, we learn of this system through the discipline of Yoga. With the mental and physical practices of Yoga, the chakras represent the steps through the ever-expanding states of consciousness that bind the individual with the divine.” –Anodea Judith

In this 4-week series we will dive into the basic information around the 6th Chakra (Ajna) and 7th Chakra (Sahasrara). We will learn what these chakras represent, yoga sequences to support balancing these chakras, as well as guided meditations to inspire introspection. A mixture of Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, guided meditation, and silent meditation will be used to explore the facets of the Chakras. We will understand the emotion and shadow emotion related to this chakra to support us on our healing journey. Finally, we will participate in an expressive chakra exercise through art, dance, mantra, or journaling to apply the resources learned in this workshop.

Y12SR – The Yoga Of 12-Step Recovery @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Apr 20 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR) is a practice designed to holistically address addiction. Addiction often goes unacknowledged in our culture, yet it is something we are all affected by. Each time we reach for something outside ourselves (substances, food, relationships, credit cards, etc.) to soothe or avoid our feelings, we reinforce codependent behaviors. Over time, these behaviors separates us from our true needs and power, leading us into addiction and suffering.

The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery serves people by creating a safe place where trauma & conditioned behaviors can be released. Various techniques are used to address the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of addiction. Y12SR is not a replacement for therapy or step work, but will enhance your progress within them. Every session is divided into two parts: a 12-step style discussion, and an intentionally themed yoga practice (appropriate for all levels of experience). Y12SR also supports those who are impacted by a loved one’s addictive behavior. This is an open and inclusive group that all are welcome to attend.

EVERY THIRD SATURDAY | 1 – 3:00 P.M.

Registration for these ongoing sessions is not required. However, please note that we have limited space and participation is a first come, first served basis.

COST:
In-person cash/check/credit card donations are welcome but not required. Just come!

A portion of all donations goes to support The Fiaria Project, a non-profit organization based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania dedicated to supporting foster families through transitions.

TIM HANSEN
As a certified Yoga Of 12 Step Recovery leader, Tim believes that a dedicated yoga and meditation practice can enable us to live an authentic life, be the best version of ourselves, and honor this lifetime. He feels that the benefits of yoga and meditation should be available to all, and looks to provide an atmosphere of inclusion that serves everyone in order to inspire, empower, and cultivate community. Tim completed a 200-hour Hatha Yoga certification program under the tutelage of Alexis Ridge-Simek, and studied pranayama and meditation under the guidance of Joe Simek at Dragonfly Yoga Studio. He has completed a Mentorship Program for Teachers with Rolf Gates, and has trained with the Love Your Brain foundation to provide yoga and meditation to individuals that have experienced a traumatic brain injury and their caregivers. Tim is currently enrolled in a Yoga Therapy program with Brandt Passalacqua of Breathing Deeply, as he continues to grow and broaden ways to serve his community.

Pranayama Workshop Series @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Apr 27 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

PRANAYAMA REMOVES THE VEIL COVERING THE LIGHT OF KNOWLEDGE AND HERALDS THE DAWN OF WISDOM.

– YOGA SUTRAS

Yoga practitioners in the United States often focus on Asana (postures), sometimes forgetting Pranayama, another vital step on the Eight Limbs Yoga Path. Pranayama, or yogic breathing, relieves stress, improves concentration, aids digestion, deepens our physical yoga practice, and ultimately prepares us for extended meditation.

Dragonfly’s Pranayama Workhops are designed as an introduction into Hatha Yoga breathing techniques. In these workshops, we’ll learn to prepare our senses and postures for pranayama through asana, various exercises and introductory meditation/relaxation techniques. In addition to practicing specific types of pranayama, we’ll also take a look at how breathing affects the body and its energies.

Our goal will be to safely bring pranayama into our everyday routine, as well as our everyday asana practice. Dragonfly Teacher Training Students will also leave with knowledge of incorporating more pranayama into their yoga classes.

The Workshop Series is designed for students of Dragonfly’s 200 Hour Teacher Training, but everyone is welcome to enroll. You do not need to attend the workshops in order. Beginners are welcome, but we strongly encourage you to attend some regularly scheduled yoga classes before enrolling.
