Forget about managing your time… manage your energy!  “There is only one thing you can control in your life and that is your reaction. “ Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could react from a place of truth, freedom and love all the time? If everything we thought, said and did was in alignment with who we were at a soul level.

Manifest the life you love just by managing your energy and finding deep clarity Ancient teachings of the 5 Vayus offers us a blueprint on how to do just that. Explore Prana, Apana, Samana, Udana and Vyana in your body and how you can manage your energy efficiently and powerfully. Techniques in pranayama and asana will leave you feeling completely energized even after a full 120 minute flow.

When music artistry and vinyasa yoga come together magic happens. Community connection aligns with pranic pulse and transforms energy, offering us freedom and clarity. Forget about managing your time, fitness, diet, relationships and life! Control is an illusion. Instead, tap into the wisdom and liberation that energy flow offers us.

We are energetic, spiritual beings having a human experience. Yoga is about tapping into that energy, the song of the soul. Music and movement integrate that awareness. Through breath, movement and music/vibration, we cultivate the balance of masculine and feminine energy that moves us toward truth, freedom and love.

This retreat is being led by Dana Damara and Stephanie Adams, ERYT 500, inspired yogi and teacher trainer for 20 years.

Chakra Flow – ignite your personal power

Saturday, October 25, 11:00am-1:00pm
Yoga Shala Sacramento
2030 H Street, Sacramento, CA
Register:  Yoga Shala Sac
Call:  916.267.5262
$25 for one workshop .. $40 for both!

Dynamic flow coupled with pranayama, designed to ignite, open and awaken each chakra. You will FEEL the density releasing from the lower chakras, creating a spark of awareness and inspiration you may have never felt before! The physical body is the pathway to the subtle body; and if we are to truly awaken to our purpose, power and passion, we must start moving the energy of the physical body.

Tightness, tension and chronic pain show up because the body has been holding onto something deeper than we can see with our eye. It’s the body telling us that something is out of alignment. Poses are held for deep penetration into the tissues and structural realignment of the skeletal system. Affirmations for each chakra will leave you feel rung out after this class…a little sidelined potentially…but ready to make real change for your life.

inner wisdom flow

Saturday, October 25, 2:00pm-4:00pm
Yoga Shala Sacramento
2030 H Street, Sacramento, CA
Register:  Yoga Shala Sac
Call:  916.267.5262
$25 for one workshop .. $40 for both!

Tap into your deepest knowing … Your intuition is guiding you every day but sometimes life runs so fast that we end up reacting to the energy around us instead of creating from the love that is inside of us. We begin to explore asana and how physiologically slow down the nervous system to hear our inner wisdom… our deepest truth. Once we tap into that internal knowing, we can guide and direct our life in alignment with our soul’s purpose.

The practice includes a deep meditation, mantra and invigorating asana designed to wake up your heart, spark your inner wisdom and get you on the road to manifesting your dreams.
