Falling Into Balance
Instructor: Carrie Tyler
Let's fall into fall! This playful vinyasa yoga class will focus on finding your balance through a smorgasbord of balancing postures and other yoga rockstar challenges. Appropriate for all levels, many modifications will be offered and you will never be pushed beyond your ability level. Be prepared to laugh at yourself, and discover tricks of the trade to help you achieve more stability in your asanas.
FIRE & REWIRE
Using Restorative Yoga Practices to Create Affective Balance
Instructor: Maura Sullivan
Emerging research made accessible by technology such as FMRI has identified emotional circuits in the brain. These circuits correlate with the ancient yogic descriptions of the nine rasas (core emotions). This session will provide an introduction to basic psychology/neurobiology of emotion and present practical yogic strategies including pranayama, mudra, meditation, and restorative asana to activate the Adbhuta or wonder rasa that correlates to drive or enthusiastic exploration. This rasa and motivating factor optimizes functioning and is the activator to all other emotion. Come activate your enthusiastic curiosity and set your intention for fall.
FALL EQUINOX WALK to ALBEE BEACH
Instructors: Carrie Tyler & Maura Sullivan
Explore nature as we embark from the Moondala Yoga Studio and walk the Bridge Fall Path-Rail to Trail to Albee Beach (just under 2 miles). This walk follows the back bay of Lake Winnipesauke to Crescent Lake and Lake Wentworth. We will set intention and walk to the beach in silence. Participants will be asked to gather natural materials to leave behind representing shedding obstacles and we will build a mandala with these materials at the beach to symbolize our new intention. The mandala will be dedicated to shifting our intention from summer to fall and infuse our actions with purpose to harvest all the work of 2016. We will return to the studio motivated with our new fall intention and energy.
LONE WOLFE BREWERY GATHERING
Celebrate the Fall Equinox and your new intention at this local Wolfeboro craft brewery. We will gather to share our experience and perhaps indulge in the taste flight or a pint of fall ale. Participants and partners are welcome.
