What’s on your agenda for this week?
Actually, let us guess.
Amazoning presents, lunch dates with people you’ve “been meaning to catch up with”, cookie exchanges, cocktails with work friends, gooey, gooey snowman projects, and the making of an ultimate “GET ME TO THE NEW YEAR” to-do list.
Or at least that’s what is on OUR list, plus more.
Hence the need to book yogic moments and commit to them NOW.
Here are our best laid plans for the next few days! From restorative yoga and healing to a sing-a-long, we’ve found it ALL.
DECEMBER 7, 2019
Elevate Yoga in Hazlet
Join healers Jamie Hanley and Viki Quirk for a holiday reset. Viki will begin with a talk about Energy Healing, including:
-What is Energy and why learn about it
-Ways to clear and preserve your energy
-using Breathwork as an energetic tool
After that, Jamie will lead an hour of Restorative Yoga practice to reset the nervous system, and once relaxed Viki will guide you through energetically clearing breathwork. There will be time for Q&A after our practice. Create time for serious self-care as we move into the heart of the holiday season.
Dig Yoga Lambertville
Join international master teacher Rocky Heron for an illuminating and transformative learning opportunity. The key to physical empowerment is diversity of movement. All too often we exchange habitual movement patterns off the mat for likewise limiting patterns in our practice and teaching. In Skills and Drills we will use traditional yoga asana and transitions as a springboard to explore your bodies potential to move, and achieve optimal mobility in all directions. We will pull, jump, bounce, lift, tone, stabilize, and play our way into greater possibilities, unlocking the keys to success in your physical practice, and the power within you to express and enjoy your body!

Honor Yoga in Princeton
This two-hour workshop is designed to take your hips into freedom and then flight. Starting with an hour of Yin Yoga, with well-known Yin teacher Ellen Mosko followed by an hour of a Master Class with Cathy Madeo you’ll explore how bringing more passive opening to your body can offer you the freedom you need to actively engage. The workshop will focus on the hips. By using two dynamic but opposite ways to engage, you’ll find how you can harness stillness into dynamic movement. Live singing bowls and guitar will be played by Robin Lee. An experience not to be missed!
Indigo Yoga in Caldwell
Treat yourself and take the time to relax and unwind with this 3 hour blissful experience. This mini-retreat will start with meditation and breath work followed by goal and intention setting. You will be led through a gentle yoga class during which you will be receiving hands-on adjustments. The practice will move into deep restorative postures where you will continue to receive hands-on adjustments accompanied with reiki energy. Sarah’s chanting fills the air, while Stacy’s hands send healing reiki energy, and Cindy gives nurturing hands-on assists with essential oils. You won’t want to miss this!
JaiPure Yoga in Montclair

Shelly James Douglas will also conduct a group balancing Reiki session to soothe and balance the body/mind/spirit.
Bhakti Barn Yoga, Millburn
This workshop was created just for boys, to introduce them to the benefits of yoga and show them that it’s a lot more than a physical practice that makes you feel good. Through challenging poses, breathwork and mindfulness, boys will build strength and balance, fire up their focus and concentration, develop positive self-image and body awareness. They will learn that yoga is all about the connections we make -– to our bodies, our minds and ourselves. This class will provide boys with a supportive, non-competitive space where they can sweat and sink into deep relaxation.
DECEMBER 9, 2018
Jivamukti, Jersey City
Explore the foundational principle in all asana practice and mastery of it’s associated psychology. When we tone mula bandah we take care of all root issues around survival, sexual energy, and our fears. We learn how to honor our inner animal and choose resourceful ways of expressing ourselves as an animal. Mula Bandah, “root lock” can begin as a physical contraction, and over time become a more energetic lift. It is at the root of the nervous system, and responsible for toning the vagus nerve. With the practice of mula bandah we can stabilze the mind, and achieve mental clarity, as we relieve ourselves from the weight of past traumas.

May Louie first took yoga in college to fulfill a Phys-Ed requirement and immediately fell in love. She, unfortunately, did not continue with her practice but reconnected with it when she retired from her corporate job in 2002 and has since become a serious yoga enthusiast. After her second retirement last year, she completed her 200-hour RYT certification, studying with Dina Crosta, Ellen Mosko, and Jamie Segal Hanley, with a focus on alignment based flow.
