Weekly Yoga classes with Aveen at Root: Center for Yoga and Sacred Studies
617 N 17th Street, Suite 200, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80904
Tuesday mornings 9am-10:15am Focus and Flow
Following the breath as the primary linking mechanism among flowing postures, we will practice staying present to what is, whatever that may be, breath by precious breath. With an emphasis on conscious and focused intention, we will observe how the subtle body is activated through vinyasa in a way that invites us to meet each form without succumbing to conditioned reactions or judgments, This class is designed to explore the basic asanas and support your discovery of what yoga is for you at this moment, atha. All levels.
Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” -The Bhagavad Gita
At the center of your being you know who you are and you know what you want.” -Lao Tzu
You will never be able to escape your heart. So it is better to listen to what it has to say.” -Paulo Coehlo
Yoga has been a gift to me in my own journey. I love to teach yin, restorative and gentle flow blended with poetry, story and the breath. My yoga classes often also include sound healing in the form of gemstone bowls. Harmonium and the use of voice. All are welcome. It is my intention you leave feeling grounded, present, and in resonance with your own being.

Soothe: 2 day training for Yoga Teachers
Filling our cups as teachers and healers is so important. We know this. And yet, it is also usually the first thing to go when we become busy and life gets in the way.
This training teaches about the polyvagal theory, heart coherence and how as teachers, we can only take our students as far as we have gone ourselves. So much research is being discovered about the importance of safety in the body as a means to reach our highest states of potential. We must feel safe in order to access our creativity, inspiration and vitality. The good news is that we can learn how to regulate our nervous system daily in order to return to flow again and again. We can then begin to live and teach from there.
This training will focus on practices that have been shown to soothe us. We will work with pranayama, chant, sacred sound, energy medicine, and simple but beautiful ways to nourish the senses. Once we are soothed and nourished as teachers, we can translate these practices to create spaces and classes that soothe and nourish our students. Once we are soothed, we can offer so much more to those we love, serve and teach. All participants who choose to, will also be attuned to Reiki level one during this weekend training.
Dates: Saturday March 16th 9:30am-4:30pm and Sunday March 17th 9:30am-3:30pm, 2019
