March Offerings and News From Chanda

I am grateful for the opportunity to share Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and Thai Yoga bodywork with all of you. Here are updates and announcements for the coming months. I look forward to connecting with you.

Special Announcements

No Class at Salida Pilates on March 9! I will be at a Thai Yoga Therapy workshop with my teacher, Saul David Raye. If anyone is interested in joining or learning more, please contact me.

Tuesday class at Salida Yoga Center (10am - 11:30am) is now Amrit Method Level II Practice. At this stage we deliberately stir up life energy, using pranayama and meditative tools to infuse the body with energy so powerfully that the mind becomes quiet and receptive. Cultivating a state of dynamic relaxation and one-pointed meditative focus, we create ideal conditions to invite spontaneous and effortless action, where prana initiates postures, breath and locks directly while the mind remains in the background. For practitioners who are ready to make a deeper connection to prana, this class will unlock new realms. If you have not yet attended this class, please consider attending the Saturday All Levels Amrit Method at 8:30am - 10am first or the Tuesday or Friday All Levels Classes being offered at The Pilates Studio, see schedule below.

Saturday class at Salida Yoga Center All Levels Amrit Method Practice now at 8:30am - 10am. Start your weekend with a delicious flow through the Amrit Yoga Asana Sequence. Just do it.

Be on the lookout for some creative promotions and stay tuned for info on upcoming special events, including:

Thai Partner Yogassage Prana Rasa Ecstatic Movement

Please share this with anyone you know who may benefit from this work. Take care of each other and yourselves and please be safe in the mountains with our unpredictable snowpack!

Pricing

Salida Yoga Center: $13/drop in or punch passes $55/5 classes; $100/10 classes

Salida Pilates Studio: $15/drop in or punch pass $120/10 classes

Thai Yoga Bodywork is one-on-one bodywork based on the integrative and healing principles of Yoga, Ayurveda (the Indian system of life balance for healing and transformation) and Thai folk medicine. It is a deeply relaxing, nourishing and energizing experience. Thai Yoga is a combination of work on sen lines (energy meridians) to facilitate free flow of life energy in the body with an assisted yoga practice to decompress joints, release muscle and connective tissue tension, and facilitate a sense of peace and embodied joy.

If you are a yoga practitioner, this work can support your practice and accelerate your progress. If you know you need to take care of your body but don't know where to start, this is a wonderful introduction to the practice of postures that will empower you to begin your journey with Yoga.

I also recommend Thai Yoga for working with injuries or pain as an avenue to discover more about the dynamics behind the pattern prior to engaging in yoga practice or yoga therapy.

Thai Yoga is powerful work that can bring healing to both the recipient and the practitioner on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It is a magical journey of moving meditation where the recipient can experience deep relaxation in a safe and supportive environment.

Introductory pricing: $108 (first-time session; runs 2.5 hours) $75 (follow-up session; 2 hours) 30 minute "spot" session - $35 (work focused on a specific area or as an adjunct to yoga practice) Availability By appointment at White Crane Acupuncture on Hwy 291 in Salida Mondays Thursdays Saturdays To Schedule: chanda.klco@gmail.com or (406) 531-3729

Stream of Consciousness Yoga Therapy In these sessions we work together to empower you. Whether you want to heal from an injury or trauma, build health, deepen your yoga practice, learn to meditate, create life balance, or enhance your physical or mental performance, we develop guided practice and home practice using powerful ancient tools that will give juice to your intentions for living life to its fullest.

First session: $65 - 2 hours - holistic and comprehensive health review and establish purpose Subsequent sessions: duration, price and frequency customized to your needs Three session minimum commitment.

Semi-private Yoga Classes (2 - 4 people) 1 hour $40/session 90 minutes $60/session Minimum 3 session commitment

Thai Yoga Bodywork, Yoga Therapy, and Semi-private Yoga can also be scheduled at your home. Contact me for details.

The Basics of Hatha Yoga Class Added!

The Pilates Studio is excited to add another yoga class to our expanding yoga program!  This one is especially tailored to beginners and any level of yoga student who wants to review the basics and deepen their understanding of yoga.   This class is taught by Mindy Candee and offered in an 8 week series that starts Monday March 12th at 9:00 am until 10:30.  The Basics of Hatha Yoga:  Taught in the adaptive Viniyoga tradition, this class will focus on the fundamentals of physical postures, breath and proper alignment in order to develop flexibility, strength and an increased sense of wellbeing.  You will also learn about counter-posing and sequencing for developing a safe and effective home practice.  Viniyoga is a method of teaching Classical Hatha Yoga, which is adaptive to each student's individual needs.  It focuses on the health of the spine and joint system, emphasizes using the breath in each movement of the body, and often uses repetitive movement in addition to longer holds of postures.

Perfect for beginners, this class is taught in an 8-week progression.  If you are new to Yoga it is recommended that you attend the class as a series.   Drop-ins are ok too!

      Cost for the entire 8-week series is $90.00.  Drop-in: $13.00.

Krishnamacharya and T.K.V. Desikachar. She is drawn to Viniyoga because it is not a style of Yoga, but rather a method of teaching Classical Hatha Yoga, which is adaptive to each student’s individual needs.  It focuses on the health of the spine and joint system, emphasizes using the breath in each movement of the body, and often uses repetitive movement in addition to longer holds of postures.  Mindy finds that teaching in the Viniyoga method is an effective means of meeting each student where they are in their own personal Yoga journey.

A couple updates from the Studio

The Monday 9 AM level 1 mat class is being cancelled.  A reminder that the Amrit Yoga class is starting this Friday 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM.  Here is a link to information on     the class and the instructor and a link to our community partners page with more information on Priti Chanda Klco.  If you would like to join Chanda on facebook here is her facebook page www.facebook.com/chandarklco .   Our studio is certainly the busy place with the free stretching class offered at noon on Thursdays, our TRX boot camp and Stretching for Stiffies and Tai Chi class on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 2:00 PM, we hope you are finding options that suit your needs.  With spring on its way and more outdoor activities coming, now is great time to start getting ready with either some private one on one sessions with one of our instructors, an equipment or mat class or a combination of both.  Talk with our instructors to find the right combination for you!  As we all know the maximum benefits from any exercise is to keep doing it, vary what you do and how you do it and always include stretching into that routine. True strength comes from body, mind and spirit all in balance and as we always say "Breath, Muscle, Move".  With such an amazing assortment of classes you will be strong, balanced and ready to shine your light.

New Amrit Yoga Classes Added

Amrit Yoga classes starting Feb 10: Fridays at 10-11am and Tuesdays at 6-7pm (changed to 6:15 to 7:15) taught by Priti Chanda Klco

Priti Chanda Klco draws her experience of yoga foremost from immersion in nature. Combining 14 years of training and experience in philanthropy, nonprofit administration, yoga, meditation, dance, bodywork, study of languages and world travel with the inspiration of this moment; Priti practices and teaches personal and organizational transformation as the embodiment of balance between mind and heart. She currently serves as Co-Executive Director at the Amrit Yoga Institute.

Amrit Yoga: Take your body mind experience to a new level.

How is Amrit Yoga unique?

Amrit Yoga gives you the key to accessing the “zone” of peak experience at will. Through this practice you will develop not only physical flexibility, endurance and strength, but the capacity to transcend habitual reactions and transform your experience, whether intense and challenging or day-to-day ordinary, into an experience of joyful flow.

Authentic yoga practice is far more than a physical workout. Postures are tools to discover and explore hidden inhibitions. These inhibitions appear as weakness or stiffness in the body, but deeper exploration reveals them to be held as fears, habit patterns and belief systems that drain strength, accelerate ageing, and cause tension. Through the Amrit Method approach called Posture of Consciousness,TM you learn how to transcend instinctive, habitual fight/flight/freeze reactions and move into each posture without force, without fear, and with full awareness. Once you learn how to do this in the “laboratory” of your yoga practice, you can apply the same skills when you find yourself in an awkward situation in life.

What will I get from Amrit Yoga practice?

Watch your body open in response to awareness, revealing strength and health hidden beneath layers of stress. Experience the waves of vitality that are released as you unlock deeply set patterns, dissolving tension and initiating healing on all levels. Soak in relaxation as you feel this energy returning back to nourish your body, calm your mind and open your heart. As you become more skilled in relaxing in the midst of action, your life energy is freed to circulate throughout your body, bringing flexibility, strength, clarity of mind and a pervading sense of well-being.

Once you understand how to go beyond the mind and connect directly to the intelligence of your vital life force, you will find that your body will respond more quickly and easily and reflect more fully the efforts you put into physical training.  By cultivating openness and receptivity, relaxation and focus, you are creating the ideal conditions for super learning and peak performance.

Recipe for transformation: Understanding + Experience = Change in Perspective

The Amrit Method of Yoga is designed to give you not only a deep understanding of the connection between body, mind and heart; but also the direct experience of Yoga (the integrated state of presence, the zone, where you experience life as effortless flow). This leads you into a progressively more conscious and constant relationship with your being, the part of you that extends beyond the limitations of body and mind. Your deepening connection to the source of your vitality and your increased capacity to remain relaxed and aware under pressure will transform your experience of everything you do. This is the real power and potential of Yoga practice.
