Sound Bath Meditation with Jonathan Adams

Sunday, May 2nd at 6:30 pm at Westside

 

About Jonathan Adams:

Jonathan Adams (a.k.a. Sonic Yogi) found Sound Therapy after an experience with extreme anxiety.  As a professional musician he knew the potential of music to entertain and move our emotions. Now following this experience, he discovered its power as a healing force. Since then, Jonathan has put his intention and focus into the exploration of the healing potential of music and has given talks and workshops on sound therapy at TedX, national spiritual living conference and more. His sound therapy tracks, can be streamed on YouTube, Spotify, SoundCloud and the Insight Timer app. They are also used by Golds Gym nationally in Centergy and yoga classes.  He continues to explore ways in which sound as therapy can to help people relax, de-stress, enjoy deeper meditations and feel great.

 

What to Expect:

Relaxing sounds with Flute, Guitar, Himalayan Singing Bowls and other sound therapy instruments designed to help you into a meditative state. Alpha and Theta states are associated with relaxation, creativity and connection with the subconscious. Journey inwards as the sounds gently entrain the brain and body towards meditative brainwave states.

Pre and Postnatal Yoga with Sarah

Saturday, May 8th at 2 pm at Westside

 

This workshop is the perfect opportunity for expecting and new moms to learn not only how to safely practice yoga during pregnancy and postpartum but also how to use yoga and meditation to ease common pregnancy discomforts, prepare for an easier labor, and help speed postpartum recovery. As a registered prenatal yoga teacher, I’m thrilled to share some of my favorite yoga tips and tricks for a happier, healthier pregnancy and postpartum. We’ll flow through a mini-prenatal power flow, learn what poses to avoid/modify during a traditional yoga class, and end with a calming meditation for some ever-important stress relief. This is a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend treat for new and expecting mamas and for those trying to conceive who want to be prepared for a future pregnancy.

Foundations and Alignment with Dane

Saturday, May 8th at 2 pm at Old Fourth Ward

 

Dive deeper into the poses that make up the foundation of your practice. This workshop will take you through our basic class structure, spending more time in each pose to give you the opportunity to align properly and discover deeper engagement. You will explore modifications, integrate props, smooth out your transitions, and get more familiar with pose names and concepts. If you’ve ever wondered “why” or “how”, these are the building blocks that will give you a more profound understanding of your practice and help you connect with its simplest form.

Advanced Transitions with Darby + Mollie

Whether these poses are brand new to you or you’re working to smooth out the transitions that you already know, look no further– this workshop is for you! Mollie and I will guide you through many advanced transitions that we don’t always have time to break down in a normal vinyasa class and show you how to incorporate them into your flow.

Meditation Workshop with Rachel

Saturday, June 1st at 2 pm at Westside

 

Meditation is known to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and even pain.  It increases cognitive functioning and self-awareness, builds emotional resilience, and supports well-being. But for so many of us, it seems like an unachievable feat that only the “supremely zen” yogis can master. Whether you are convinced you can’t meditate, interested in understanding how to cultivate a practice, or are in need of a reset to boost your meditation practice, this workshop is for you. We will get curious and explore what it means to be in present moment awareness, learn different ways to meditate, and practice some guided meditations along the way. You’ll leave with a better idea of how to integrate meditation into your yoga practice and how to experience mindful moments in your daily life.

Kids Yoga Series with Maya

Ages 5-8: Mondays 3-4 pm, June 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th at Buckhead

Ages 9+: Tuesdays 3-4 pm, June 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th at Buckhead

Do you want to introduce your child to the practice of yoga? Does your child always ask you what you do when you come to Yonder? Then this workshop is definitely for your child! Through breath and movement, our young yogis will develop self-confidence, self-awareness and self-control. Starting a yoga practice at a young age establishes a foundation for a strong mind and body. This workshop will help students improve strength, flexibility, and coordination.

I will introduce the basic postures and concepts of yoga.  I will also teach breath work and each class will include a mindfulness aspect that involves a meditation. I will explain the basic structure and sequence of a yoga class (Sun Salutations) and lead students through a flow.  Each class will also include a restorative section that focuses on stretching. My goal is for our young yogis to learn the basics of yoga as well as how to take their yoga practice off the mat into everyday life.

Investment: $30 per class or $100 for all four sessions.

Inversions Workshop with Steph + Jovas

Saturday, June 12th at 2 pm at Westside

Have you always wanted to incorporate inversions into your practice, but you’re scared to try them in class? This is the workshop for you! Great for both inversion-junkies and those new to the inversion practice, this workshop will guide you through the alignment, tricks, drills, and skills to take you practice upside down. We will breakdown handstands, headstands, and forearm balance and give you time to practice and play with individualized feedback and guidance.
