yoga in the salt room at bodymind float center with sophie

October 21, 28 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.

building 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. During the workshop, Gina will address your concerns, answer your questions, and you will be able to try out and participate in the exercises. Come with the desire to learn how you can stay stronger longer and build strong bones.

Yoga + Acupuncture: Moving Qi with Chelsey Mollin and Sophie Tashkovski December 21, 2019 1:00-3:00 PM

Winter - a time to slow down and go inwards. As we enter the more yin time of the year, we begin to embrace the more yin aspects of ourselves. While the moonlit sky takes up more of the day than the sun, elements such as introspection, stillness, feminine, darkness, quiet and solitude take up more of us, rather than movement, masculine, light, loud and socializing. Through everyday acts of self care we can strive for balance and to live in harmony with both our external environment and our bodies.

Yoga & acupuncture is an excellent way to take care of body, mind & spirit as we enter the cold season here in Syracuse. The first half of this two hour workshop will guide participants through a deeply restorative yin Yoga practice. The focus being on deep, deep breathing all the way down into the kidneys, the organ associated with Winter. Following the Yoga practice will be an extended savasana with rejuvenating and relaxing acupuncture points. This combination of slow, intentional movement combined with extended periods of stillness and relaxation is the perfect opportunity to settle into Winter.

The Sound of Silence: A Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra & Meditation experience with Cindy Yaple

Saturday January 18, 2020 1:00-3:00 PM

Quiet the mind and the soul will speak ~ Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati

Do you find yourself constantly ruminating in the busyness of the mind? Do you experience, stress, anxiety, or have difficulty sleeping? It’s one thing to talk about a quiet mind, but it’s something else entirely to experience it.

What if in this New Year, you were able to cultivate a more peaceful and resilient New You? Learn mindful techniques and practices that are designed to naturally draw the mind inward and nurture the calm, quiet, peaceful center that is innate in all of us.

Yin Yoga is a mindful approach, as well as a perfect complement, to the more Yang fast-paced lives we often lead. Yin Yoga uses traditional poses in a non-traditional way, to access the deeper layers of fascia, connective tissue, joints and meridians. Poses are held passively, for a longer time and practitioners often experience increased range of motion, greater flexibility and a calmer mind with this practice that creates a deep intimacy with Self.

As the practice of Yin begins to draw the mind inward, experience the power and potency of Divine Sleep® Yoga Nidra, where nothing is required of you but to lie down and listen. Dive into deeper levels of consciousness and experience a greater sense of peace and ease with the practice of deep relaxation. Yoga Nidra has been proven to help with insomnia, reduce blood pressure and help with chronic pain.

Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra naturally draw the mind toward stillness, which may enhance deeper, more profound levels of meditation and help to create greater mental clarity, focus and calm.

Take some time to slow down, savor and connect with you!

Taught by Cindy Yaple, E-RYT 500 hr. Cindy is a Kripalu Yoga Teacher, a certified Kripalu Yin Yoga teacher, a Certified Divine Sleep® Yoga Nidra teacher and a Kripalu Meditation teacher. Find out more about her work at www.cindyyapleyoga.com

*open to all levels of yoga experience

Investment: $25.00

Yoga + Acupuncture: Moving Qi with Chelsey Mollin and Sophie Tashkovski March 22, 2020 2:00-4:00 PM

Spring at last! The days are getting slightly longer and signs of life are sprouting both around us and within us. As the plants and animals are trying to emerge from the deep stillness of winter, so are our bodies and spirits! We are flowing out of a time of darkness and solitude and into Spring! A season of creative energy, growth and forgiveness.

Through this two hour workshop we will move our bodies and breathe in the fresh air that is warming up around us. This yoga practice will focus on expansion, stretching and promoting movement through the liver meridians, the organ associated with Spring and it’s element, wood. Following the movement practice, participants will receive acupuncture treatment during an extended savasana, to compliment the yoga’s intention of coursing the liver qi and moving stagnant energy that has developed over the winter. This beautiful combination of yoga and acupuncture is an opportunity to get things moving as we transition into the exciting energy of Spring time in CNY!
