july 29, August 12 &19 7:45-8:45 PM

Syracuse Yoga is excited to be the exclusive Yoga partner with Bodymind Float Center-we're offering Yoga in the Salt Room!

Salt therapy is a safe and deeply relaxing way to address many respiratory ailments. Bodymind's dry salt aerosol therapy brings these remedies into the 21st century. It's 100% natural and safe for virtually everyone, including children.

Salt has both anti-inflammatory and sterilizing properties. It kills bacteria and draws moisture from the bronchioles. Mucous thins, sinuses drain and breathing becomes easier. Salt therapy can alleviate the symptoms of respiratory ailments such as cystic fibrosis, asthma, rhinitis, allergies and hayfever, sinusitis, chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

This class is limited to 8 participants. We'll focus on Pranayama (control of breath) and Yin Yoga. Bring a mat and a water bottle. Bodymind Float has filtered water available and wipes for cleaning your mat after class. Feel free to enjoy a relaxing cup of tea after your session!

Master Class: Tune in and Tune out Sound Vinyasa with Alicia Mitchelson

September 8, 2019 7:00-8:30 PM

Come tune in & tune out…share your energy, move, breathe, heal and deeply relax. Join Alicia for a 90 minute creative vinyasa flow. Practice will then shift to restorative postures- closing with a 30 minute magical savasana with two crystal singing bowls, pan drum, and chimes. This is a unique inner journey guided by a variety of sounds and frequencies.

The body is a vibrational energy field. Every cell in our body vibrates at certain frequencies. As the brain and body receive the vibrations our mind automatically switches off/tunes out, bringing a sense of tranquility and calm. The sound waves will leave you feeling tuned in, refreshed, stress free and blissful.

“The singing bowls act as a medium in which our inner chaos and conflict can be reconfigured into a harmonious sense of calm contentedness that resonates through every cell of our body and mind.” — The healing power of sound: Mitchell L. Gaynor, M.D.

Please bring your mat & water bottle. All other props provided.

buliding blocks for stronger Bones with Gina Galli october 26, 2019 1:00-3:00 PM

One important goal in life is to maintain good health and age gracefully. Unfortunately, we don’t often think of our bone health until we have an injury, are experiencing joint pain, or have been diagnosed with conditions like osteopenia or osteoporosis. There is much we can do to keep our bones strong and healthy, including enjoying a regular Yoga practice. It’s never too soon nor too late to think about building strong bones.

Join Gina Galli in a new workshop as she shares her passion for helping others repair their bodies through yoga. Through her work with Dr. Susan Brown, PhD, and the Center for Better Bones, Gina has gained an understanding of how to build bone density through a very targeted exercise program. In this new workshop she will share with you some Yoga sequences and poses based on proven studies that can strengthen muscles and bone, improve flexibility, and provide pain relief.

Gina has taught bone-building yoga workshops at the Love Your Bones, Love Your Life retreats in Myrtle Beach, SC, the Sedona Mago Retreat Center in Sedona, AZ, and at The Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA. Gina is also the co-creator of Better Bone Exercise Evolution, an online video subscription channel that focuses on safe bone-strengthening exercises.

Gina has trained with Sara Meeks, physical therapist, Kripalu yoga teacher, and author of the book Walk Tall. Using the Meeks Method, Gina will emphasize how to move safely and mindfully, tapping into body mechanics and awareness. She will share important alignment cues and modifications to well-known yoga poses like safe twist and forward fold, as well as spine strengthening poses to fit your abilities. Through this workshop you can make improvements in and prevent changes to your posture. You will learn how to reduce your risk of fracture.

Take Care: a self-care & stress resiliency workshop with Christina Aguiar RYT 500 November 9, 2019 1:00-3:00 PM

Let’s take responsibility for our own well-being through self-awareness and mindful practices. We'll learn the many ways stress manifests in the mind and body. Then, we’ll practice simple techniques to bounce back when it strikes. Through this powerful experience, we can connect to what we need on a deeper level and ultimately transform our relationship to stress for a healthier, more balanced lifestyle.

This will be a nurturing, interactive workshop including self-reflection, breathing practice, gentle yoga, guided meditation and relaxation.

Christina believes yoga is a fantastic way to strengthen the body, unwind the mind and uplift the spirit. In 2006, she started practicing yoga at the gym and quickly noticed positive changes in her fitness and mood. Yoga made her feel strong, relaxed and deeply connected to herself. What started as a physical challenge to relieve stress, evolved into an exploration of movement, breath and mindfulness. As a Yoga Teacher, Christina is grateful for the opportunity to share her love for yoga with others. She encourages students to honor their bodies and approach their practice with awareness, curiosity and compassion. She enjoys creative sequencing and emphasizes structural stability to safely build strength and increase mobility. Through her classes, she hopes students will find a balance of physical fitness and emotional connection for greater peace of mind.

In addition to yoga, Christina also offers stress management, meditation and relaxation workshops for individuals, studios, community groups and corporate workplaces. She has completed advanced training in Comprehensive Yoga Therapy with YogaLife Institute NH and Stress Management and Resiliency Training with the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.
