Regarding Covid, a note from Eleanora:
Greetings everyone. I am really excited about coming together for our EmPowerflow Yoga workshop. Yoga is truly one of the very best ways to strengthen and empower every system of our being. Over the last year I have been studying the Immune System, effective self care practices, and yoga flows. During this weekend we will interface this ‘pandemic school of higher learning’ by tapping into the lymphatic system, organs, and nervous system. Yoga flow will include activation of our natural defenses, especially the parasympathetic nervous system to promote a strong immune system. These practices are specific, simple, and highly effective.
Join us for learning more, sharing all you’ve learned and experienced, and together we will all power up to bring more light, strategies, and compassion to our family, friends, clients and students.
Join us to grow your skill set, soothe your soul, lighten your spirit, and share in community.
We are deeply grateful for EVY taking every positive and healthy step possible. The space is beautiful and pristine.
Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions or concerns: Eleanora.firstname.lastname@example.org
In Light & Love…….Eleanora
We are happy to welcome yoga mentor, pioneer, and one of Abbey’s first yoga teachers from over 25 years ago – Eleanora Lipton! Eleanora will be presenting teacher training on an integral piece that she has developed, EmPowerFlow. This workshop is currently broken into 2 parts. Ideally theses workshops should be attended in consecutive order but that is not required.
EmPowerFlow Yoga: Powering Up from the Earth and Activating from Center
April 17 & 18, 2021
14 Total YA approved hours
These workshops can be taken in any order.
In Weekend 2, the focus is on getting more and deeper to the core. From the ‘energy’ perspective, the core is of the quality of Tamas, i.e, like sinking into the center of the planet of the earth through our body. Feel this for a moment. Turn your attention deeply inward at your navel and imagine diving in.
The physical body slowly begins to open into a reservoir full yet empty. A profound energy is present…..deep, penetrating, with texture. Emotions reveal themselves. So much can be discovered here. Herein lies a tremendous source of energy. We will tune in here and learn so much regarding the strength or struggle with our focus and poses. As you feel these deep inner energies, we will co-create a safe and transformative yoga journey.
Would you like to dive a little deeper into understanding more of the nature of energy? This energy model is truly a profound way to activate yoga poses and move more deeply into stillness.
Topics covered include:
- Overview of the chakra system as our core energy system
- Purification breathing practice for all 5 elements
- Activating fire, water and air elements to move more and more from the center to the peripheral body
- Poses for the core muscles of the torso which serve as key levers with specific focus on safety of the neck and spine
- Core/energy principles of the shoulders and hips and how they are interdependent for strength and flexibility
These elemental energies are who you are, who nature is, and as Dr. Stone says, the elements are the ‘batteries of life.’ As long as there is life in the body, these batteries are completely rechargeable! This energy model will truly serve you in all your endeavors.
Grounding, Powering Up, Activating
Tamasic – deep contact with the core; earth energy of strength, stability, grounding, and inertia
Grounding deeply is empowered by the energy of tamas.
