Table Thai Massage

Looking to take your Thai Massage to the table? Join Lesley Sario LMT next Tuesday November 14th from 12pm-4pm to play & learn how to incorporate modern day fusion of Table Thai Massage & dynamic stretching into your bodywork

Cost: $99 * Email elkrockyoga@gmail.com to Register!

 Blending therapeutic bodywork and healing practices that harmonize breath, movement, and intention to provide decreased stress, tension, and pain. This workshop emphasizes “Metta: the practice of loving kindness” to ensure that every technique feels good to give and receive.

Supine, Prone, and Side-Lying techniques will be covered demonstrating simple, easy, and fun approaches to safely move and stretch the body for a solid 60-90min session on the table. Join us for a fun healing journey! (6 CEU's)

Benefits of Table Thai Massage:

* Appropriate for practitioners who are unable to work on the floor. Body mechanics are easier to incorporate on the table and blend easily with established massage practice.

* Improves postural alignment and balance to the nervous system while encouraging the release of synovial fluid, which lubricates the joints and enhances joint mobility.

*Assists lymph flow, which boosts the immune system and aids the circulatory system by distributing blood, oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.

* Alleviates common painful conditions, such as back pain, sciatica, shoulder pain and headaches.

Lesley Sario is the Founder/Owner at Elk Rock Wellness & Yoga, an E-Ryt 200 Yoga Alliance certified instructor, Holistic Educator, and Licensed Massage Therapist since 2005. Her practice and instruction is shaped through extensive training, professional experience, & healing intention.

Intro Qi Qong and Nei Gong
Nov
11
to Nov 12

Intro Qi Qong and Nei Gong

What is Nei Gong?

It is the internal foundation upon which all of the Daoist arts are based and the connecting link between martial arts, medicine and meditation within the Daoist tradition.

When studied as a stand-alone subject, Nei Gong is a systematic method of working with the three bodies of man (the physical body, the energetic body and the consciousness body) in order to attain good health, psychological well-being and at later stages, spiritual elevation. It is the bringing together of the theoretical philosophy of Daoism with an enigmatic energetic process.

In order to understand Nei Gong it is important to understand that it is a process rather than a set of exercises. In order to move through this process we use various tools including Dao Yin and Qi Gong exercises but these are used simply to help guide students through the process.

This weekend workshop will be covering:

* The philosophy and application of the Daoist cosmology
* Learning to stretch, open, prepare the body for Nei gong
* The most efficient quality of mind + attitude for Nei gong
* Building the most efficient wuji posture
* Opening, mobilizing, and moving from the kua
* Exploring the nature of activating the lower dan tien
* Basic Wu Xing(5 element) Qi gong set
* Establishing and organizing a personal practice

Important Information+Warning:
Please be aware that this is not specifically a medical Qi Gong workshop nor is the focus on gentle rest and relaxation. Instead we will focus on and practice classical-style arts which can demanding and challenging in many ways. Oh yes, don’t forget that a sense of humor is mandatory.

The Dates:
Free Intro Discussion, meet & greet, & tea with Brandon: 
Thursday 11/9 7:00-8:30 pm.

Workshop: Saturday & Sunday 11/11 & 11/12 : 
9am-5pm with a lunch break.

Cost: $200 w/ $150 early bird discount by Nov 9th - Register Here!

Space is limited to 20 people so please register asap to reserve your spot.

Location:

10560 SE Main St

About Brandon:
Brandon is the owner of Hyperion Herbs, Hyperion Academy, Hyperion Hemp, and Hyperion TV. He is also a featured author on Elephant Journal. He has immersed himself in the study and practice of Daoist arts since the age of 14. Brandon has studied with Lotus Nei Gong and is certified to teach the level 1 Qi gong & Nei gong syllabus.

Wild Heart Kids Yoga presents: Mommy & Me Meetup

This FREE caregiver and me class is open to one caregiver plus one child ages 3-5.

We will spend a quality hour with our kids doing fun partner poses and games in a relaxed setting. Come and learn fun ways to incorporate yoga and mindfulness into your everyday parenting situations. Through imagination and connecting with the natural flow of the seasons, we have the tools needed to pause and appreciate this moment together, just as we are now; messy hair, diapers, tantrums and all... because sometimes parenting can be quite the wild adventure!

Taught by Yoga Calm certified instructor and parenting expert Tiffany Chapman, this course is based on Yoga techniques that have worked for her over the course of 11 year career as an Early Childhood Educator and 7 year career as a single mama. Growing  up, Miss Tiffany benefited from the bonding that occurred from her family's living room yoga sessions and she hopes that her students take what they learn in class home so they can benefit as well.
