SOUND BATH & PRANA MEDITATION WITH LOLA LHAMO

SUNDAY, JANUARY 19, 6:30 - 8 PM

 

For over 3000 years, people in the Himalayas have been practicing powerful energy healing methods. They became accessible in the West less than 150 years ago. In accordance with the ancient scripts, there are thousands of energy channels in our body, and prana, the breath of life, flows through them. By activating and purifying the chakras, our energy centres, we ensure this life force energy is circulating properly in the body, for our good health, and even more – this helps us to go beyond and connect with the universal consciousness and cosmic energy.

This masterclass is dedicated to discovering and practicing powerful energy healing practices of the Himalayas: breathing techniques (Pranayama), inner vibrations (mantras) and Prana Meditation for purifying our energy centres (chakras) and releasing physical and emotional tension, Qi Gong Prana (Chi) activation, Nidra yoga for brain rejuvenation accompanied by Sound Bath with Tibetan Singing Bowls, for deep meditation and connection to ourselves.

FLY, STRETCH AND BEND: WEEKEND WORKSHOPS WITH AMBRA VALLO SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 29 & SUNDAY, MARCH 1

 

Join us for another inspirational and informative weekend with Ambra Vallo! Ambra will lead three workshops, including "Flying Up - Unravel the Power of Uddiyana Bandha", "Stretch and Restore", and " Hollow Back Step by Step". These workshops will help you harness your own inner confidence, strength and power to take your practice and understanding of your own body to the next level. Join us for one, two or all three!

FLYING UP - UNRAVEL THE POWER OF UDDIYANA BANDHA Saturday, February 29th, 10 am - 12:30 pm
Uddiyana means "to raise or fly high" the one that flies up is the pranic energy, which moves from the lower abdomen to the chest. In this workshop, we will work on activating this energy closure to find lightness and control in our practice. In the end, we will arrive at the yogic Holy Grail; the Secret to Floating.

STRETCH AND RESTORE Saturday, February 29, 1:30 - 4 pm
This workshop is designed for anyone who wants to unlock and release tension in their neck and back, and increase flexibility through the hip, hamstrings, wrists and shoulders.

We will begin with a deep warm up to prepare those areas and then progress to techniques to help improve your flexibility and mobility to help alleviate discomfort and prevent injuries. We will cover all the basic elements so that you can progress in your practice. There will be plenty of stretching and conditioning exercises, alignment cues, partner drills, restorative work, and MORE.

This workshop is open to all levels. Also suitable for people new to the practice.

HOLLOW BACK STEP BY STEP Sunday, March 1, 11 am - 1:30 pm
In this workshop we will break down one of the most iconic poses of the Dharma Mittra lineage, the HOLLOW BACK. We will work on correct hand placement, body positioning and a wide range of drills designed to help you progress with flexibility, strength, stability, muscle endurance, and balance.

The thoracic spine is an area that often times lacks mobility. The beauty of the hollow back is that it allows us to isolate the upper chest, protect the lower back, and make us feel a glorious opening at the heart, even when lacking flexibility in the spine!!!! An amazing counter pose for people that spend their day in a hunched forward position working on a computer, driving or sitting.

To develop confidence we will use the wall and work in pairs. Some will wave goodbye to the wall while others will find the pose for the first time with the wall. At the end of the workshop you will have all the tools to become a hollow back addict.

Open to All Levels

COST: All 3 workshops: €105 with payment in advance by February 15 (regular €110); 2 workshops: €70 payment in advance (regular €75); 1 workshop: €35 payment in advance (regular €40)

ABOUT THE TEACHER

Ambra is a former Principal ballerina with the Birmingham Royal Ballet. Throughout her career she enjoyed the chance to perform on stages all around the world. She turned to yoga on a path to Recovery from injuries that naturally result from the strenuous training regime, and as well as becoming a hobby she also credits it with helping to enhance and prolong her career. Slowly over the years she fell in love with the more subtle, spiritual parts of the practice.

Retiring from dance allowed her the time to focus on her passion and to undertake further training in Ashtanga Vinyasa (500hrs),

Dharma Yoga (800hrs), Rocket Yoga (500hrs), Forrest Yoga (200hrs and Advance TT), Tripsichore (200hrs), and Gokul Vinyasa Yoga (300hrs).

Since she retired from professional ballet she has been teaching regularly in teacher training courses, has worked with performers and athletes helping to rethink their traditional training regimes and introduce yoga to drive better performance and increase their enjoyment of sport and performance. Her aim is to guide others so as they may also experience the many amazing benefits of yoga to the body, mind and soul.

You are taken on a personal journey filled with surprise and delight, vulnerability and acceptance. You’ll be empowered to unearth answers for yourself through embodiment, intuition and self-study; and to have fun along the way. Be prepared to move, and be moved.

 

THE MASTERCLASS, Friday, March 27, 6:30 - 9 pm

During this masterclass we will sweat, we will sing, we will dance and we will
laugh with the teachers of joy, challenge, love and confusion – all the while seeking a sweet surrender into Savasana. This masterclass is the perfect opportunity for students, from beginning practitioner to intermediate/ advanced students and teachers, to drop in, dive in and go deeper into exploring everything that is possible with their practice. The asana practice is mindfully sequenced so that the basics are covered for newer students and the seasoned practitioner can play on their edges with many variations and up-levels to practice throughout.

WEEKEND WORKSHOP SERIES WITH LES LEVENTHAL, MARCH 27 - 29, 2020

DETOX FLOW, Saturday, March 28, 10 am - 12:30 pm

Opening the hips begins by cultivating awareness of the challenges we hold in our hips and pelvic region. While we work to release this tension, we can begin to relax and strengthen the quads, the inner and outer muscles of the thighs and also stretch the hamstrings. While unlocking this area of our body, we will also free the spine with twists which can infuse the body with vitality and well being, releasing enormous amounts of tension. Twists are associated with toning and rejuvenating the abdominal and pelvic regions. When these regions are engaged, blood flow naturally increases and toxins are released – a natural internal massage. Relaxing and strengthening these areas releases lower back tension and frees limitation in the neck and shoulders.

YOGA TEACHER TUNE UP, March 28, 1:30 - 4 pm

You’ve been teaching for years, are a new teacher, yet to start teaching or a student that’s seeking to connect/reconnect to your passion(s) and find your authentic voice. In this immersion, we will do some writing that investigates the voice that is already inside and how to express yourself clearly. We will have time to create marketing material so that you can see, more clearly, the directions you dream of going and then start moving in that way with resources that keep you motivated. Safe sequencing to peak poses and assisting will also be covered. In this immersion, your voice will be heard. Challenges as both a teacher and student will be explored. Come reconnect with us.

GRAVITY & GRACE, Sunday, March 29, 11 am - 1:30 pm

Flying is like a great fire of courage – once that flame is ignited – it never goes out. Arm Balances and Inversions can be some of yoga’s most challenging yet fun poses to practice. Learn to safely defy gravity, starting with a single breath. In this workshop you will strengthen your core to better support your arm balances. We will build upper body strength which will help support and build healthier wrists, elbows and shoulders. Les will guide you to engage the legs, so they don’t take refuge in Savasana. Begin cultivating awareness of your body in an upside down position and moving through space, while surfing from one pose to another. Yoga should be satisfying and fun, not a chore full of fear. This workshop will launch you there.

COST: All 4 workshops: €140 in advance by May 4 (regular €160); 3 workshops: €105 in advance (regular €120); 2 workshops: €70 in advance (regular €80); 1 workshop: €35 in advance (regular €40).

ABOUT THE TEACHER

Les owes his new life to yoga. It is because of this he gifts his yoga, and his life to others. A life that journeyed Les from rock bottom to a world of endless possibility, he infuses fun, laughter, inspiration and transformation into all of his classes. His appreciation for all that is, radiates in all that he does.

 

Completing his teacher training in 2005 with the renowned Ana Forrest and assisting her with subsequent trainings, his studies are steeped in Forrest tradition. He has completed several trainings with Tias Little from which he has acquired much of his alignment and technique cues, as well as a firm foundation in the 8 Fold path of Buddhism. Les’ flow yoga has now reached the USA, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and soon to reach the UK and Europe. He has been featured twice in Yoga Journal magazine, interviewed by Darren Main, author of Yoga and The Path of The Urban Mystic, and by Joe Sarti of Voice America – Your Life Without Limits.


Les weaves in the 8 limbs of yoga, keeping the traditional styles a part of his classes while opening a window into our global cultural shift. He provides the opportunity to heal your heart, sweat, sing, laugh, cry and just let go. Many classes have music. You’re encouraged to modify throughout, doing what you need to take care of your practice and allowing the ’rasa’ (the sap or juice) to flow freely.
