Final Day of FREE YOGA IN THE PARK 2015 – Highlands Ranch, Colorado

August 7, 2015

LET LIFE TOUCH YOU!

Yoga is an opportunity to Let Life Touch You! To feel life, be affected by it, moved and shaped by life at every turn. We start by letting the breath touch us, then community, then body, then magically our spirit is also touched.

Let Life Touch You on the mat for this final practice of the summer. We invite everyone in the community, all ages, and all levels of experience to show up, burn brightly, live passionately and connect to touching your true source.

Our final practice is led by Jena Sawyer with Nancy Levenson, Jenny Clark, Barbara Bloodgood and a few more, as we bid goodbye to summer.

This program has been offered FREE of charge to the community for seven years now by NamasteWorks Yoga + Wellness, LLC.  Join us from 8:15-9:15 at Civic Green Park, located at 9370 Ridgeline Road, Highlands Ranch, CO, located by the main library.NamasteWorks Free Yoga in the Park 2014 Opening Day 112

In What Ways Am I Well?

August 7, 2015

Health or Sickness

What is it you focus on when asked the question “in what ways do you know you are well?” This question was given to me by one of my teachers, Camille Maurine. It amplifies how our mind works – our tendency to focus on the many ways we are not well. Can you sit with yourself in meditation and truly find the many ways that you are well.

And even beyond that – can you investigate what causes your health with the same wholeheartedness that you do when seeking how you might be ill? Maybe instead of going to the Doctor and filling out forms of your prior illnesses, you could shift the paradigm and fill out pages and pages of what makes you well.

Meet our returning instructor:  Sue Khodarami

Sue Khodarami - Free Yoga in the Park 2012Sue Khodarahmi has been practicing yoga since 1993, and this is her fifth year to meet us all on the mat for Free Yoga in the Park. In 2009, she returned to the classical style of hatha yoga that first inspired her, and received her teaching certification from the Shambhava School of Yoga. Shambhava Yoga draws from the rich tapestry of yogic teachings to explain how to use the circumstances of our own lives to grow consciously, and features breath-focused hatha yoga to help us relax, open and align with the more subtle flow of energy. Her classes are energetic and fun, with an emphasis on core and upper-body strength and flexibility.

Summer Solstice 2014 and Sun Salute

June 21, 2014

Wishing you a joy filled Summer Solstice. Today is the beautiful solstice, where we celebrate the longest day of sunlight. The twilight hours—morning and evening—call us to make the journey back to our inner selves. Take the time today to notice the rising and setting sun. Feel the essence of her warmth and rays of light by chanting the beautiful mantra – Gayatri (Guy-ah-tree).

Invite the Gayatri into your Sun Salutation practice today.  This method of honoring the sun was  taught to me by my master teachers Joseph and Lilian Le Page, and taught to my students by me, and their students by them.  Invite the twelve words to flow to the twelve classical steps of the Surya Namaskar.

OM, bhur, bhuvah, swaha, tat, savitur, varenyaum
bhargo, devasya, dimahi, dhyo, yo nah, prachodayat

Translation by Joseph Le Page:

Om, body mind and spirit
That Sun God
That we venerate
May the divine light which we meditate upon
Inspire our vision and energy

Barbara’s back too!  A breast cancer survivor and a trained breast cancer yoga instructor, Barbara discovered the yoga world after experiencing her own step back from optimal health in September 2002, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, underwent eight rounds of chemotherapy and 36 rounds of radiation to rid the cancer that spread from her breast into her lymph nodes.

NamasteWorks Free Yoga in the Park 6.4.2014 004

It was then that Barbara became committed to her own yoga journey.  She loved being on the mat, it offered her the spirituality piece that she felt had been lacking for some time in her life and provided her an inward look at her own heart and soul. Come out and join Barbara in one of her gentle practices in the park….you might hear her say the word “alignment”, “alignment”, “alignment”.

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR – JENNY DOMINGUE

Jenny was introduced to yoga ten years ago while working for a center for personal and spiritual growth in Louisiana, her home state.  Yoga was the one modality that helped relieve stress and rebalance her energy after challenging days at work.

NamasteWorks Free Yoga in the ParkIn her past, Jenny also suffered physical, mental, and emotional deterioration from stress.  Practicing yoga and breath work have been a big part of helping her regain her health on every level.  Jenny knows first hand that the body has the ability to heal itself and that this can only happen when we are in a state of physiological relaxation.

Jenny’s yoga practice focuses on using breath with movement to bring about the body’s relaxation response.  This state of restfulness brings the body/mind into balance and activates its self-repair mechanisms.  Jenny teaches that truly understanding and experiencing our body’s relaxation response can help us live a new normal, with more ease in the body, energy, positive mood, clarity of mind, and freedom from many chronic health issues.   Jenny received her 200HR Integrative Yoga Therapy Teaching Certificate from local based, NamasteWorks Yoga + Wellness, an affiliate school for teaching yoga as a healing art.
