    Description:
    The extremely talented, Charles Gibson, will lead you through the partner workshop, during which you will learn the history and intention of Thai yoga massage. Massage will help increase flexibility, relieve stress and give a greater awareness of body and mind. Techniques used will work everything from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet. Our hands, elbows, feet and knees will be used to connect with our partners with Metta love and kindness. At the end you will learn enough to be able to work on your partner for a twenty minute massage.

    Partners can be a friend, spouse, workout buddy, or anyone you want to connect with through this dynamic form of bodywork. Having a partner lead you through this session allows the body to relax and allows the building of trust with the receiver feeling supported by the giver. Picture yoga being done to you, all the benefits without the effort.

    Some of the many benefits are: relief of stress and muscle tension,improved range of motion, joint mobility,increased energy, injury prevention and mental clarity.

    No prior experience is necessary. It does not matter if you are not flexible. You will be on the floor so bring mats and blankets to be comfortable on the ground.

    About the Instructor:

    Gentle Flow/Yoga Nidra class

    Instructor: Kathy Morgan
    Date: Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018 7PM – 8PM
    Price: $20

    BOOK NOW

    Description:
    Kathy Morgan will take you through guided meditation and movement practice; and will finish the class with a beautifully guided Yoga Nidra for Sleep meditation. Her deeply calming voice penetrates into your very soul, instilling a sense of internal peace and leaving you feeling incredibly relaxed, present and rejuvenated.

    Also known as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness, Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice that is rapidly gaining popularity in the West. It is intended to induce full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. “We live in a chronically exhausted, overstimulated world, Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing our physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs.”

    During a typical class, Kathy will use a variety of techniques—including guided imagery and body scanning—to aid relaxation. And unlike a quick Savasana at the end of asana practice, Yoga Nidra allows enough time for practitioners to physiologically and psychologically sink into it—45 minutes for this class. 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is comparable to 4 hours of deep sleep.

    The ancient yoga text the Mandukya Upanishads refers to four different stages of Yoga Nidra. The practitioner begins by quieting the overactive conscious mind, then moves into a meditative state, gradually finding a state of “ultimate harmony,” in which the brain waves slow down and a subtle euphoria emerges. Though most practitioners don’t slip easily into the more advanced stages, they still tend to emerge feeling rejuvenated. Yoga Nidra uniquely unwinds the nervous system, which is the foundation of the body’s well-being.


    About the Instructor:
    Kathy dabbled with yoga for many years but didn’t get serious until her marathon coach forced her to include it in her weekly recovery practice. Kathy fell in love with the physical practice first but it did not take long until she was deeply changed by the mental and spiritual practice of yoga. Kathy feels the need to participate in many physical activities to keep her body and mind balanced. Kathy is dedicated to expanding her yoga education to better her practice for her yoga students and herself anyway she can. She is currently 200-hour RYT from Balanced Yoga, 200-hour RYT from Shaktirasa Yoga and currently working on 300-hour Ayurveda lifestyle coach certification program with Shaktirasa. Kathy’s day job is working as an elementary physical education teacher in Olentangy schools. She is excited to bring yoga to Lewis Center.

For new and frequent flyers!


    About the Instructor:
    Brooke experienced her first yoga class 18 years ago. She first enjoyed the physical benefits but later noticed the benefits of a yoga practice go beyond the poses. The shapes she creates on her mat remind her to breathe, to feel, to have an open heart and open mind, to go with the flow and trust the process on and off of her mat. These experiences inspired her to complete her yoga teacher training so she could share these gifts of yoga with others. Since 2010 Brooke has guiding others in their yoga practice and enjoys witnessing the amazing shifts in their flexibly and strength within the body and the mind. Brooke is a 200hr E-RYT and loves creating yoga classes that are fun and challenging for all!

    The Health Pyramid Project

    Instructor: Debbie Reichert
    Date: Thursday November 1st – Tuesday April 30th
    Price: $60

    BOOK NOW

    Description:
    Introducing the Health Pyramid Project!!!

    This is a 6 month commitment done VIRTUALLY through a private Facebook page hosted by Debbie Reichert that will run from November through April. During this 6 month period, we will focus on three areas of wellness. We’ll be diving into the PHYSICAL self (exercise/nutrition), your MENTAL self (self care, how you speak to yourself and others, and goal setting), and lastly, your SOCIAL self (how you treat and build your relationships with those around you, and the importance of focusing on positive relationships).

    Debbie is a certified fitness trainer with additional certifications in nutrition, and extensive continuing education in the areas of Life Coaching and the Mind-Body connection.

    During this 6-month period Debbie will hold you accountable on your exercise program. Too often, people freak out come April/May because they want to be “summer body ready.” Unfortunately by then it’s too late to get the results you want come June. By starting NOW, you will alleviate all of that stress, and finally have those results! You will look and feel better than ever come summer and be fit, healthy and ready for those tank top and swimsuit months! The goal from a fitness standpoint will be to do a variety of exercise. We will focus on strength training, cardio and stretching, split up between 4-5 times a week. If you are not local and cannot work out with Debbie personally in one of her small group training sessions, then you will be responsible for creating and sticking to your own workout regimen. Debbie can provide help on this to get you on the right workout structure and programming. Debbie will be supplying workouts on the page a few times every month that can be done at home or at the gym as well.

    NUTRITION IS KEY! Debbie will be supplying everyone a copy of her Clean Eating Cookbook. This is included in the cost of the program as an added benefit to committing to this project! Healthy recipes will also be posted every weekend to the page to give everyone new ideas for family friendly eats. Debbie will be supplying information on clean eating, macro-nutrients, foods for fat loss, 20 super foods, intermittent fasting, and proper supplementation just to name a few.

    We will examine your social self. Are you letting go of the things that no longer serve you? Are you evaluating your friendships and how YOU treat others? Are you being the best version of YOU that you can be?? What is keeping you from reaching your goals?? These are just a few of the questions we will ask and dive in to answer, as well as give guidance to overcome any social obstacles you may have in your path.

    Every month, Debbie will be bringing in Facebook Live videos done by both she, and resident experts in the fields of fitness, health and wellness, and entrepreneurs who will both encourage and motivate you to take YOUR fitness and business/work goals to the next level.

    You will be inspired on the page daily through readings, motivating stories and will love the accountability you will have through Debbie’s coaching!

    If you are READY for CHANGE! Then this Health Pyramid Project is for you! Don’t wait for the future. The future is NOW! We look forward to serving you.

    About the Instructor:
    Debbie is a certified fitness trainer, holding additional certifications in nutrition for sports and exercise with hours of continuing education in Life Coaching and the Mind-Body Connection. But certifications and studies aside….the thing that makes Debbie different in the industry is her deep passion for helping to make a positive change in people’s lives. After doing the corporate America route, in 2012, she started her personal training business. This escalated to a small group fitness business and in 2018, after renting space from gyms that didn’t reflect her brand properly, she opened her own studio. At that time, she employed 2 additional trainers and 9 yoga teachers to provide even more services to her client base. There is a sense of COMMUNITY at Debbie’s studio that is not comparable to anything else in the area. Debbie and her staff cannot wait to meet you and hope to see you at the studio soon for some small group strength training or yoga sessions soon!

    Quiet the Mind – An Intro to Meditation

    Instructor: Tiffany Gavula
    Date: Friday November 2nd 07:00PM – 08:30PM
    Price: $35

    BOOK NOW

    Description:
    In the Happiness Hypothesis, meditation is offered as a consideration to change your affect (defined as “…the felt or experienced part of emotion.”). It is a very powerful and effective tool that is available to everyone. How to do it, however, is the problem that most of us face. In this Introduction to Meditation Workshop, you will be exposed to several different types of meditation, given a clear explanation of each, and offered the opportunity to practice in a supportive environment. You will leave with tools to start your own meditation practice to lead you on your path of quieting your mind.


    About the Instructor:
    Tiffany is a registered (RYT-200) instructor through Yoga Alliance. Her 200 hour level training was completed at Yoga West in Houston, Texas. It has been an honor to enhance her education by training with talented instructors such as Robert Boustany, Ricky Tran, Rodney Yee, Colleen Saidman Yee and Jason Crandell.

    The classes Tiffany teaches include Restorative, Gentle, Hatha and Vinyasa. As yoga continually reveals different parts of itself through her own practice, Tiffany’s interests have expanded to include pranayama and meditation study. She believes these practices have invaluable benefits on the nervous system, and on the body as a whole.

    Yoga has had a profound effect on Tiffany’s overall health, strength and self-confidence. It is her passion to share this practice with others. It is also her hope that each student has a positive experience, learns through a safe practice and leaves her class feeling better than when they walked in.
