2014 NamasteWorks Free Yoga in the Park – June 25 – Highlands Ranch

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.

Awaken the Spine at Free Yoga in the Park

Come join us on the mat and discover how powerful it is to awaken the spine.  Our breath with movement sequence releases energy stored in the spine and in the pranic (subtle) body known as the sushumna nadi.  Through moving the spine in six directions, forward bends, backbends, lateral movements and twists to each side, this central channel of energy is literally awakened.  Organically opening the spine allows fluids to move through each vertebra, nourishing, soaking and shining the entire spine like a string of new pearls.

Renee Carrillo leads you on your journey this morning with Sue Khodarami at her side.  Join these two gifted instructors and awaken your spine in this breath with movement mind/body integration.

Mats open at 8:15
Mats close at 9:15

Opening Day, May 30, 2012
Meet the Instructors – Jenny Clark

This is Jenny’s fourth year at Free Yoga in the Park and her first coordinating our wonderful instructors. In her own words: “Yoga for me has been an intimate part of the awareness created by being fully connected to the inner …workings of my body, mind and spirit. Growing up in a home with a brother and sister with severe medical problems, I discovered early the importance of having a strong understanding of the power each of us has over the health of our own bodies. Yoga has provided the perfect opportunity for self exploration and expansion in my understanding of my connection to everything around me.”
