Weekly ScheduleIMG_7427

Monday

4:15-5:30pm Beginner Yoga  Parvati

This class was designed to introduce concepts and postures of Amrit Yoga and to bring attention to each part of one’s experience. Attention is given to the body, mind and spirit; as this attention grows healing can be discovered. This class incorporates asana (postures), pranayama (breath), and Ayurvedic principles. Modifications are provided as needed. Students of all levels are welcome.

5:45-7:15pm  Amrit Yoga Therapy/Deep Relaxation Susan

Amrit Yoga Therapy classes offer a unique style of restorative yoga. Using a combination of focused meditations and gravity-supported, static poses with the use of a wall or various props, students learn how to rest with and release blockages held in body zones such as legs, buttocks, hamstrings, heart and shoulders. This class is an ideal option for anyone who wants to deeply open and purify the mind-body complex.

 Tuesday

7:15-8:00am Sunrise Yoga Nidra Janie Ganga

Start your day with meditation! We’ll practice about 40 minutes of Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation technique. Amrit Yoga Nidra is one of the easiest ways to meditate. You just invite your body to be still and follow the instructions as best as you can! Usually we are in a reclined position, or it can be accommodated for seated. You don’t need special yoga clothes and you won’t get sweaty. Sunrise Yoga Nidra is the perfect way to start your day with meditation and still make it to work or your next thing on time. We finish up with some very gentle movements to help ease you back into your body and into your day. You’ll leave feeling both relaxed and energized!

9:30-10:30am Chair Yoga Janie Ganga

Chair Yoga is perfect for you if you’re brand-new to yoga, if it’s challenging for you to get up and down from the floor, or if you want to try a yoga class that delivers the benefits of gentle stretching and breathing exercises.  Many folks who have taken Janie’s Chair Yoga classes have reported how surprised they were that they got so much out of it – rejuvenating mind, body, and spirit!

Accessibility notes: Santosha’s new space on Reservoir Ave is all on 1 level with standard-sized, single-user bathrooms. On the exterior, there is a ramp (or one step up) to access the door with one dedicated handicapped parking spot and plenty of additional parking on a level surface.

6:00-7:15pm Amrit Meditation in Motion Kavita

This class is available to all levels of experience and will be adapted to the students’ abilities to explore their ‘Energetic Edge’ and ‘Inner Landscape’ as opposed to their physical edge.  The Conscious Crossover begins where the Posture of Consciousness (Amrit Level 1) leaves off. In the Posture of Consciousness you learn how to focus on sensation, and to observe how Energy follows Attention. Through building that relationship, you ultimately transition into observing that your Attention is now following Energy, creating an inverse relationship with your Self. The Conscious Crossover is a deliberate practice inviting you to explore this realm of experience within; a practice which ultimately leads to Meditation in Motion (Pranotthana).

Wednesday

7:30-8:45 pm Amrit Yoga/Yoga Nidra Janie

In this class for all levels (beginner to advanced), we combine the two major tools of Amrit Yoga: Asanas (postures) and Yoga Nidra (guided meditation in shavasana), As you move, breathe, and stretch, the flow of energy in your body will return to balance. Your mind will calm down and decompress. We seal in the benefits of yoga with deep relaxation in yoga nidra. All you need to do is lie down and follow the instructions. This ancient technique will melt away stress and heal you at all levels. No previous yoga experience is needed for this class.

Thursday

9:30-10:45am Advanced Gentle Amrit Yoga Parvati

This class was designed to bring attention to each part of one’s experience. Attention is given to the body, mind and spirit; as this attention grows healing can be discovered. This class incorporates asana (postures), pranayama (breath), and Ayurvedic principles. Modifications are provided as needed. Although students of all levels are welcome, this class will build on what has already been practiced.

4:15-5:30pm Start Fresh: After-School Yoga Susan

Would you like to clear your head and wake your body after a day in school?  Relax and recharge with Amrit Yoga, designed to help quiet your thoughts and stimulate a flow of physical energy. Beginners, veteran yogis, and non-educators alike are welcome to breathe, stretch, and unwind in this easy-going class.

5:45-7:15pm Amrit Level I Sequence Jagdish

Amrit Level 1 Sequence provides an opportunity to practice a complete posture series. It is recommended for students familiar with Yoga basics and ready  to delve into a practice that is more physically and meditatively focused than would be found in our other Amrit classes.  If you aren’t sure about taking this class, ask one of your teachers.

Saturday

8:30-10:00am Advanced Amrit Yoga Nitya

This energetic class builds on Beginner Amrit Yoga.  Join Nitya in a dynamic yoga class to  awaken your body and revive your spirit! In each class, Nitya shares the principles of Amrit yoga through breath and meditation techniques while incorporating these practices into physical asanas that can be at times both physically and mentally challenging. Students are encouraged to stay inwardly engaged throughout the practice, which provides an opportunity for a deepened connection to Source and also serves to strengthen and feed prana (energy) in the body. The intention is to open the body’s energy channels and experience the effects as they manifest in the moment, remaining present for all that arises, thereby creating a safe and therapeutic environment for deep healing.

Sunday

9:00-10:30am Kundalini Yoga & Meditation April

Kundalini Yoga is an ancient practice that targets the nervous and glandular systems for healing and empowerment. Each class follows a basic structure – we will do a kriya, or set of exercises, followed by long deep relaxation and a meditation. Within this structure there is wide variation; some classes may be active, while others may be more meditative. Movement, concentration, mantra, mudra, and breathwork are all techniques that will be explored. The yoga meets you where you are, so this class is suitable for all levels – beginners and experienced yogis alike.
