Dare you to join a Yoga class

ECHOyoga is committed to Empowerment, Care, Health and the coming together as One in community. The “ECHO” of this is the core vision of yoga teachers who strive to share the joys and benefits of yoga. Aside from regular class schedules, ECHOyoga runs special workshop as therapies and healing modalities, as well as to ease newcomers into understanding the practice of yoga. An evening series of Beginners Grounding Workshop for four Thursday nights of May (May 5, 12, 19, and 26 at 6:30 p.m.) will give the newbie grounding techniques and introduce them to the basics and principles of yoga.

While yoga has long proven its health benefits, yoga is quickly gaining ground as an important complementary therapy in the treatment of various illnesses. Yoga for Depression and Yoga for Life (specific for AIDs and HIV) will be offered. Because yoga quiets the mind, improves breathing and circulation, and strengthens the immune system, among other physiological and psychological benefits, regular yoga practice can be an important complementary therapy to a comprehensive treatment program.

Yoga Therapy for Depression, a fundraising initiative for the benefit of the Natasha Goulbourn Foundation), will be offered on May 7 and 14, two Saturdays, at 4:00 p.m. focused on giving a sequence of therapeutic yoga poses to help combat various levels of depression. Sessions include energy healing with Reiki healers who will teach and demonstrate the flow of Universal Energy, and work to raise and balance the participant’s energies.

Athlete’s injuries are the focus in Yoga Therapy for Athletes, a workshop that offers a series of therapeutic yoga sequences for athletes, trainers, and physical therapists. The workshop will address sore muscles, hip pain, knee injuries, low back strain, and ankle sprains. By loosening up tight muscles, yoga helps improve total body mobility and flexibility, giving a greater range of motion and improving performance. This workshop is scheduled on May 21, Saturday, at 4:00 p.m.

 The popular workshop of visiting teacher Tara Khandro called Awakening the Conscious Heart, will be repeated on May 28, Saturday, at 4:00 p.m. This workshop includes a variety of healing techniques such as movement, chanting, shamanic journeying, meditation, release, activations, and play. Tara Khandro developed Alchemy of Wonder™, an integrative consciousness healing modality for violent trauma survivors. She has given this work in United Nations conferences, drug treatment and crises centers, universities and colleges, interfaith conferences, with genocide survivors, anger management programs, natural disaster zones, and human development centers such as the Omega Institute in New York.
