Dhanwantari Center for Yoga & Well-being is offering several more in-depth classes on the practice of yoga.
Beginning Wednesday, January 11th, and ending Wednesday, February 1st, Vinyasa 101 will be offered. It is an extensive, 4-week class in Vinyasa that helps you to learn more fully the fundamentals of yoga. In the class, you will learn the postures, breathing techniques, and the philosophy behind the practice. You must be able to attend all classes as make-up classes are difficult to plan and are at the discretion of the instructor. Check out Dhanwantari’s website for more information.
On Tuesday, January 21st, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra will be offered. Barbara Coleman will lead participants on a “mini-vacation”, helping you to restore balance to your mind, body, and spirit. This class will help to reduce stress and promote inner peace. The sequences of poses in this practice will use postures, breath control, and deep yoga nidra. The atmosphere will be enhanced with various spiritual texts that will be woven in to the practice. This is a perfect way to release the stress you may have accumulated from your holiday festivities. Check out Dhanwantari’s website for more information.
On Tuesday, January 28th, you will have the opportunity to delve into the philosophy behind the practice of yoga with PHIL 101: The Philosophy of Yoga. This is a monthly workshop in which you will learn about The Vedas, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Sutras from the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and more. The more you understand what is behind the practice of yoga, the more fulfilling your practice can be! This is a 3 hour workshop and the cost is $25. If you have purchased an unlimited class pass, the cost is lowered to $20. For more information, check out Dhanwantari’s website.
On Wednesday, January 29th, there will be another opportunity to take part in a class on Yantra painting. Yantras are geometric forms that contain hidden energies as cosmic channels. Yantras can be focused in a number of directions, particularly Transformation, Protection, Guidance, and Strength. To create your own yantra is a very sacred, healing process that can help deepen your yogic practice. Once you’ve taken this class, you will be able to continue creating wonderful yantras at home. Note: you will need to bring a dish to share for the potluck lunch that will take place during the day. Supplies you will need: a mechanical pencil, a clear ruler, a metal compass, an eraser and paintbrushes, paints, or colored pencils. For more information, check out Dhanwantari’s website.
