Y12SR: The Yoga Of 12-Step Recovery 10-Week Workshop @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Jun 1 @ 7:15 pm – 9:15 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.

DATES:
Every Thursday, 7:15 – 9:15 p.m.
June 1 to August 10 (No Class July 6)

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

Pranayama Workshop Series @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Jun 24 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 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.

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.
