  • Becoming the Best Birth Partner-Aug 29, 2020

    Becoming the Best Birth Partner: A hands on, yoga based, couples workshop to help prepare for labor.

    Join prenatal yoga teacher and birth and postpartum doula Rebecca Henry for a fun partner workshop that will bring together childbirth education and yoga techniques to help you learn how to be a rock solid birth partner.

    Many of the postures and breathing techniques practiced in prenatal yoga classes are not only natural birthing positions, but can also serve as comfort during pregnancy and labor. This is especially effective with additional support and pressure from the hands of a loving partner.

    Women often intuitively know what positions serve them best during labor, but partners are often at a loss of how best they can help them move between and support them in these positions. Natural labor progression is always enhanced when a mom feels supported and comforted by the people surrounding her. This workshop will focus on teaching birth partners how they can take an active, physical role in the pregnancy, labor and birth process, and therefore be a more relaxing presence for mom.

  • Manifesting Abundance
    with Julie (Jiwan Shakti Kaur) Eisenberg

    Join LYC owner, teacher and teacher trainer Julie for a special 2-hour Kundalini Yoga workshop to manifest abundance and open your life to prosperity.

    The end of the summer is a great time to clear out what we don't want to carry with us. We then begin to focus on bringing into our lives that which DOES serve us. Letting go of the old gives us the opportunity to open up to ABUNDANCE.

    During this workshop, we'll focus on manifesting abundance in our lives. We'll explore different aspects of abundance and prosperity and see how they fit into our Covid lives. Whether we're looking for abundance of love, light, wealth, health, or happiness, we'll collectively create the vibrations to make this happen.

    In this 2-hour online workshop, expect some silent introspection, vigorous movement, and a  powerful group meditation. The class will not be available for replay.

    Open to all – no Kundalini Yoga experience required.

  • Working with Discomfort
    with Evan Faber

     

    We are all feeling pretty uncomfortable right now. The pandemic, racism and police tension, election anxiety, economic distress — these are very heavy times. Not to mention our complicated personal lives. 

    We all have ways of coping with discomfort. And if we are honest with ourselves, the truth is we often choose to numb out or escape rather than face and work with our feelings. Sometimes we don’t even know we are in a state of avoidance, we just know that something’s not right inside, and then our inner discordance spills out into different facets of our life.

    Did you know that discomfort doesn’t have to be misery? It doesn’t have to control us. We can be uncomfortable and at the same time grounded and purposeful. There are ways of understanding and working with our discomfort that can help us free ourselves from its weight, and even level up.

    Join Evan for this yoga practice and meditation workshop to investigate your inner world and learn techniques to gain self mastery. Bring a yoga mat, a journal, and a willingness to work with discomfort.
