BUILD: Foundation in Ayurveda

Ayurveda is the most ancient and comprehensive system of health and focuses on the whole being to promote well-being. The goal of Ayurveda is to bring harmony and balance to all areas of one’s life. It doesn’t look just at the physical body and symptoms, but investigates all areas of life to discover the root of the problem. This foundational workshop will introduce you to the basics of this sister science of yoga. We will look at how the elements, the seasons, and even the time of day can impact your health. We will explore your personal constitution, or dosha, and help you examine your current state for imbalances. 

Join Joane Wire to kick off your exploration of Ayurvedic practices.

When: Saturday June 30th
Time: 1:00 - 3:00p
Cost: $35 per person

READ: The Four Agreements

"NO TWO PERSONS READ THE SAME BOOK." EDMUND WILSON

Welcome to Ignite Yoga's inaugural book club! As with everything Ignite and yoga, the journey is to expand your mind. All books will be selected to encourage you to contemplate, think, and perhaps, act. In our meetings, we will gain insight on how differently we each approach the same book and support one another as we tap deeper into the spiritual journey we are all on.

Meetings will be held quarterly to discuss one book in its entirety. Each book will be announced at the book club meeting and allotted 1.5 - 2 months reading time so that you can enjoy and absorb all that you're ingesting.

The intention of our book club is to further our learning and growth off the mat while creating space for our Ignite Yoga community to come together. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Each meeting is held at Ignite Yoga studio
  • Group discussion facilitated by Joane Wire
  • Beer, wine, water, and tea are provided at each meeting
  • Light snacks provided or bring something to share!
  • Books are announced at each book club meeting and to be read prior to next meeting
  • Meetings held May 6th, August 19th, and November 4th 2018.

BUILD: Weekend w Rocky Heron

YOGA UNLEASHED!
Physical health requires movement diversity and while yoga offers a wide range of shapes, all too often, like most systems, classical yoga falls short of insuring that we stay diverse. Instead of liberating our bodies through yoga, we may end up simply placing ourselves on a different (albeit looser and perhaps longer) leash. In this innovative and informative weekend, Rocky will hand you the keys to liberate your body and take a pivotal step toward a long-term, successful movement practice that transforms and includes traditional yoga. Broaden your body’s expressive potential. Diversify your capacity for movement. Explore a broader range of potential joint articulations; a more diverse set of possibilities in motion. Pull, jump, bounce, lift, tone, stabilize, and play your way toward expanded possibilities. Unleash yourself!—You have the power to move and enjoy your body. Come learn, grow, and play with us in this fun and transformative weekend!

Play!
Friday Sept. 14th 6:00 - 9:00p
In this opening vinyasa based session we will unwind your spine, and re-route your energy powerfully into the earth. We will leverage the reaction force from the ground in playful and joyful ways as we buoyantly weave through standing postures, hip openers, and accessible arm balance options. Along the way expect to learn groundbreaking techniques to evolve your experience in a wide range of asana and transitions, all while deepening your knowledge around the mechanics of your magnificent body. All levels are welcome.

Strengthen!
Saturday Sept. 15th 11:30 - 2:30p
Want to learn how to dramatically increase the strength and stamina of your muscle tissue? Are you curious how to play an active role in the reparation of old injuries? Isometrics are one essential tool. In this session we will explore closed chain and open chain techniques, aligning our joints and turning on muscles that may be locked short/long or off-line. These simple yet powerful techniques will help to entrain coherent signals throughout your nervous system that will load your tissues for optimal healing and, when applied to your practice, enable massive gains in your stability and pose efficacy.

Stretch!
Saturday Sept. 15th 3:30 - 6:30p
How do we become more flexible? In this session we will explore our muscle’s ability to actively shorten (concentric) and lengthen (eccentric). When we bring awareness into these co-contractions and work them with purpose, the dual aspects of our practice (strength and flexibility for example) all yoke together, collaborating toward a more unified whole. Learn techniques to intelligently stabilize your body for greater ranges of motion. Submerge yourself with intelligent awareness. These drills will be used to empower success in your practices of back-bending, and asymmetrical leg stretches.

Jump!
Sunday Sept. 16th 11:00 - 2:00p
In between life’s moments, there are a never-ending threads of transition. It is in our ability, or inability, to move with ease and confidence through these transitions that life opens up to us as we open up to it. In this session, we will explore our bodies potential for plyometrics; using the earth as our trampoline to leverage downward force into upward levity. The result will be a more spring-loaded, efficient movement, enabling us to explore more elusive transitions on our mat with greater ease and skill - arm balances, and dynamic standing poses. All levels welcome!
