with Lauren Walker
Saturday, May 10; 12:30-4:00pm; $45
What is it that makes yoga practitioners feel so good after a session—more so than after other kinds of exercise or stretching? “Yoga was created to directly stimulate and move us at the energetic level,” teaches Lauren Walker. Yet it can take an hour or more to gain the subtle benefits of yoga practice, and many of us don’t have the luxury of being able to devote that much time to a regular daily routine. That’s why Walker created Energy Medicine Yoga—a breakthrough book, and now into a workshop that combines yoga with the most effective practices of energy medicine to vastly increase the benefits of your practice. Lauren Walker has adapted the renowned energy medicine techniques pioneered by her own teacher, Donna Eden, so they integrate seamlessly into the movements and postures of yoga practice. “These tools are simple, easy to learn, and fit right in with what any yoga practitioner is already doing,” Walker explains. “They’ll allow you to work smarter, not harder—so you can have a healthy body full of energy, zest, and joy for what life has to offer.”
Energy Medicine Yoga teaches how to balance and heal the 9 major energy systems of the body. Lauren Walker brings her teachings to Health Yoga Life for a special Energy Medicine workshop. Experience your own inner magic and re-inspire your life both on and off the mat!
Lauren has been studying and practicing EEM since 2001. In 2012 she formally enrolled in the two year certification program and will graduate in January 2014. She has been a teaching assistant for Donna Eden, EEM’s founder, since 2009.
Lauren Walker has been teaching yoga and meditation since 1997. She splits her time between Maine, Montana and Vermont. A writer since childhood, Lauren publishes widely including features in The New York Times, The Jerusalem Post and Salon.com. She has a periodic yoga column at MNN.com and she’s been featured in Yoga Journal. Her first book, Energy Medicine Yoga,will be published by Sounds True in October 2014. Lauren is wandering spirit and has lived and worked all over the world. She continues to travel and teach workshops and classes in the US, Canada and abroad.

Anatomy for Yoga Workshop

Saturday, December 14, 2013 12:30-4:00 pm
When you flow into your upward facing dog, what’s the real effect on your spine? How does a forward bend impact the vibrancy of your kidneys?

In this entertaining, lively workshop, Yaron Carmel, certified Kinesis-Myofascial Integration (KMI) Structural Integration Practitioner and a seasoned Teacher, will help you optimize your yoga practice through an understanding of anatomy. Using hands-on exercises, Yaron shows how insight into the body’s mechanics can help you unlock your deepest physical potential. Keeping the focus on the practical application of bodywork to yoga, Yaron, will guide you through simple, effective techniques to avoid (or repair) injury and maximize your performance.
Workshop is great for yoga students and teachers! Join us!

Yoga Assisting and Alignment Intensive
Saturday, Nov. 23rd & Sunday, Nov. 24th 12:30pm-4:00pm
Similar to your yoga practice, assisting is about presence, possibility, connection and action. It is not about forcing the perfect pose. It is about guidance and insight allowing the right pose to emerge for every body. Join us for the Yoga Assisting and Alignment (YAA) Intensive where you will learn about healthy alignment, key aspects of assisting, and how to assist in a direct, effective and safe manner. Completion of the YAA intensive is required for anyone interested in becoming a yoga classroom assistant. Yoga Alliance credits available. In this very interactive hands-on workshop, we will explore different approaches for assisting and how to physically and energetically work with others. Come prepared to work on your mat and with the other participants. We will review alignment and how to correct asana without taking away from a student’s self-exploration of the pose. The intensive will also build a community of peers that will support your growth and learning.
This program is designed for students and teachers of all levels of experience. The YAA Intensive is suitable for: ◊ Anyone who loves the practice and wants to learn more ◊ Those seeking to understand proper alignment of yoga poses ◊ Teachers who would like to bring safe and effective assisting into their classrooms ◊ Those interested in working with others in the yoga classroom as an assistant ◊ Anyone who might want to explore teaching ◊ Students who would like to engage with their yoga community
Join us for a weekend full of practical and informative tips and techniques that you will be able to take back to your mat or to your class immediately! It will not only rev-up your practice it will open you up to more possibilities of engaging with yoga in your life!

Taking Knowledge to the Mat
with Karen Fabian
Saturday, November 2, 2013 12:30-4:30 pm
Join Karen Fabian, Certified/ Registered Yoga teacher for an exploration of the key anatomical landmarks, muscles, bones and joints at work in the body. Actions of all of these components will be emphasized both to understand how safe action in the body is created, how imbalance can occur and how length and strength in the body depends on an understanding of these components. The information will then be applied to several key poses in yoga. This exploration will improve your alignment, increase your understanding of what goes on “underneath the skin”, help you practice with greater integrity, which all leads to greater strength and stability in your poses. Practical examples of anatomy in action will be included.
Karen has a background in physical therapy and has studied anatomy as part of her background as a teacher. She teaches anatomy to yoga teachers in various trainings around Boston and as part of her own Teacher Mentorship Program. She has been teaching yoga since 2002.
Yoga Teachers: Karen is an Experienced Registered Yoga teacher so participation in this workshop can be used towards your CEU requirement with Yoga Alliance.

FREE BALANCE BOOTCAMP DEMO SESSION on Saturday, October 12th at 12:30pm-1:30pm. A 60 minute FREE personal training session outdoors with Stephen Allison. Meet at Health Yoga Life wearing sneakers!
To Sign up CLICK HERE!
In fitness, balance is everything. The ONLY bootcamp of its kind by alternating between a powerful bootcamp session twice a week on Tuesdays & Thursdays at 12:30pm-1:30pm and HYL—yoga classes on Mondays & Wednesdays. Instead of pushing trainees through four punishing, grueling workouts in a week THIS bootcamp is balanced. During bootcamp days emphasize on sweating and elevating the heart rate through squats, lunges, jumping jacks, pushups and sprints; Type 1 muscle fiber workout emphasizing our mirror muscles (the ones to admire in the mirror). Then recover, rest and reprogram the body in non-explosive yoga classes to strengthen your Type 2 musculature, improve flexibility and lengthen the muscles.
In a typical bootcamp strength and fitness gains are achieved but are not optimal. They are designed to be hard so that we feel the burn and feel that we’ve gotten a great workout. The body will adapt to the imposed demands of the bootcamp workout, but will not gain in muscle elasticity, mind body awareness or Type 2 muscle fiber strength. The body needs to recover, a day off, to fully reap the rewards of a hard workout. The end result, after a month, will be strong, balanced bodies and minds. The alternating sessions will complement each other seamlessly. Go from plateau to peak in 30 days with a combination of strength, muscle tone and flexibility. SPACE IS EXTREMELY LIMITED!

Soma System: Refine Your Yoga Practice with Self Bodywork
with Roman Torgovitsky, PhD
Saturday, 06.01.2013 12:30pm-4:00pm
Tight hips? Cranky shoulders? Contemporary neuroscience research tells us that muscle tightness takes a toll on every part of our lives. It causes suboptimal physical performance, which compromises asana practice and athletics, and it agitates the mind, which hinders sleep and meditation. Melt away tightness with three and a half hours of deep tissue Soma System practice–a holistic self-bodywork method that fuses movement and meditation with the use of specially-designed tools. Your body will feel stronger and more pliable as muscle tightness releases, and your mind will feel balanced and more tranquil. SPECIAL BONUS: This introductory workshop will begin with a special ten minute Yoga Assessment(TM)–led by Vyda Bielkus–designed to help you detect and assess areas of tightness and restriction. We’ll return to the same Yoga Assessment (TM) at the end of the workshop, thus allowing you to intentionally sense and re-assess how your body has changed over the course of the afternoon.
Roman Torgovitsky, PhD is internal martial arts practitioner, structural bodyworker, Harvardtrained biomedical researcher and creator of the Soma SystemTM.

It is about guidance and insight allowing the right pose to emerge for every body. Join us for the Yoga Assisting and Alignment (YAA) Intensive where you will learn about healthy alignment, key aspects of assisting, and how to assist in a direct, effective and safe manner. Completion of the YAA intensive is required for anyone interested in becoming a yoga classroom assistant at Inner Strength, Watertown.
