CAT STRETCH SOMATIC SERIES with Ann Blackburn

  • Date: Tuesday’s, November 7th – December 5th, 2017
  • Time: 6:00 – 7:15 p.m.
  • Cost: $85.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

In Thomas Hanna’s work known as Somatics, he revealed 8 primary practices that would address all of the major movement patterns in the body and keep them connected to the nervous system so that full range and control of movement would be maintained around every joint in the body. They are foundational to the blending of Somatics and Yoga in the work and healing of SomaYoga therapeutics; eliciting freedom throughout the Soma which means the whole being – mind, body, and spirit.

He called the collective 8 practices: The Cat Stretch, as he felt they emulated the slow, intentional care a cat takes when it meticulously moves and stretches each part of it’s body upon waking, re-connecting itself.

This Class Series (5 classes) will help us do the same – wake up and enliven our entire inner landscape as the outer one wakes up to the next seasons ahead – the preparation of the body to go into the colder seasons without having to stay contracted inward. Learn how to draw into the body to release outward with more freedom and function.

We will have the opportunity to experience this practice in class, and then get to practice it at home between classes. By the end of the class series, you will have this deeply satisfying and supportive 15-30 minute morning and/or evening practice that will help you stay pain-free and tension-free for from the inside out.

“If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla

Join Shaamaahs, Ann & Dan as they lead you through a journey through your energy body to connect with your Self. Sound, meditation, mudras, mantras, pranayama, and movement are all ways to balance the energy/subtle body.

Our energy system vibrates at multiple frequencies. The sound meditation helps our Chakras “oscillate” with an external sound catalyst. The seven major Chakras and Universal OM have their own individual frequencies/notes and the Sound Meditation is designed to connect in that way. The Chakras are an intricate energy system that communicates with our bodies endocrine and nervous system. This experience can relax, improve health, and give you the opportunity to connect with your wisdom Self.

Ann & Dan Blackburn are co-owners of Tula Yoga & Wellness. They are excited to work with Shaamaahs to bring this work to the Tula Community.

Learn more about Shaamaahs and his work:
My path to creating this sound meditation began 30 years ago as a drummer/musician in the Minneapolis music scene. At a very young age I was always aware of a meditative space that was obtainable while performing with musicians. This meditative space was the catalyst for inward exploration through practice and theory. The importance of developing the tantric/energy body in coordination with yoga and meditation opens up new doors for inward exploration. This involves working with raising internal energy and developing the human ability to “oscillate” with a external sound catalyst. The sound meditation I’ve developed uses esoteric “drone” instruments involving matched octaves singing bowls, Kargyraa throat singing and a Shruti box to create a oscillation catalyst using unique acoustic instruments in natural ratio tunings. It took 3 years of acquiring, and practicing techniques before being able to create this music. The significance of these tunings are all around us and within ourselves and the key to “sympathetic resonance”. This I felt was the path that was calling to me. The desire to explore inwards and reach the true teacher within us all is experience and sharing this experience. The goal of these sound meditations is to simply perform and provide a meditation that has the potential to relax, improve health, and/or obtain “Trance Meditation” states. – Shaamaahs

  • Cost: $30.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

What wisdom are you bringing with you from the dark of winter? What are you awakening in yourself? Night and day are in equal balance at the time of the Spring Equinox. Spring is the season for the liver and gallbladder meridians which are associated with liver, gallbladder, eyes, blood, tendons and ligaments, anger, frustration and courage. Opening through these meridians can lead to health, vitality and contentment.

Join Brianna for a two hour long Yin and Yoga Nidra practice that will help to clear the stagnate chi from the mind and the body. Use this humble and nurturing practice to welcome your body out of hibernation.

Yin Yoga is a soft, still, deep and nurturing seated practice. It goes beyond stretching the muscles. It opens and creates space in the body while cultivating elasticity in the fascial system. Through this practice we will create space in the mind and body that will allow the unfolding of a fertile spring.

SURRENDER AND EXPAND: A YIN-SHOP with Brianna Darling

  • Date: Saturday, May 26th, 2018
  • Time: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Cost: $45.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

Rooted in a Toaist philosophy, Yin teaches us how to slow down, to honor stillness, to access the deeper parts of ourselves where we can tap into our innate wisdom. It provides us with an opportunity to balance an ‘activeness’ (or yang) of everyday life. When we practice yin we are working with the connective tissues in the body as well as the energy body. It promotes suppleness and health while boosting the immune system and removes stagnant energy and blockages from the energy body. Deep stretches are held for several minutes at a time with the support of bolsters, blocks, and blankets.

In this Yinshop you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the foundation of the practice through readings and discussion on the topics below followed by an extended practice that touches on the body’s major lines.

· Toaist philosophy

· The Chinese Medicine Meridian System

· The Science of our Body’s Fascia

· The Chinese 5 Element Theory

No experience with Yin or yoga necessary. Great for beginners. Modifications for all bodies. Register early, this workshop will be capped at 18 students.
