Yoga and the Anatomy of Immunity

Teacher Training Manual-323.jpg

Join Sandra Vanatko and Dr. Tiffany Denny this December for a workshop on yoga practices to bolster immunity combined with the anatomy and physiology behind the immune system and why these yogic techniques work. 

First, Tiffany will dive into the science behind best practices for maintaining a healthy immune system, especially focusing on the role played by yogic practices such as tapping, pranayama, and asana. 

Next, Sandra will take you through a complete immune-driven practice, including the techniques discussed and finishing with a luscious Yoga Nidra session. 

Spend an afternoon during the holiday season taking care of YOU.  Make the commitment to pause for a few hours, to be in community, and to consciously slow down.  Bolster  your immune system during a season where we tend to stay up later than usual, eat foods that don’t nourish us, and endure increased stress levels.  Tiffany and Sandra are excited to take you through the science of staying healthy and a practice that will support both high levels of holiday activity and will deepen your ability to relax, keeping you balanced through the season.

Early Bird  |  $55 through Dec 3

843A3425.jpg

Dates and Times:
Fri, Jan 26 6-9p
Sat, Jan 27 12-6p
Sun, Jan 28 9a-4p
*Please ensure that you can attend the entire training*

Cost:
$395

Sign-ups begin Dec 1, 2017. RSVP to the Facebook event to see updates and reminders!

Dr Tiffany Denny will lead a 15 hour weekend workshop for self-empowered women who feel inspired to provide Embody Love Movement® workshops and programs in their communities.

The world needs women unencumbered by self-doubt and self-criticism to be present to the challenges in our society. Embody Love programs promote this kind of self-transformation, so that girls and women can step up to contribute to meaningful change in the world. 

What is a Facilitator?
Facilitators are women who lovingly share Embody Love Movement’s revolutionary programs in studios, schools, camps, community centers and other non-profit organizations. The workshops that they facilitate focus on emotional expression, exposing media myths, changing the conversation from criticism to kindness, and recognizing self-worth and purpose.

How facilitators make a difference:
This training provides facilitators with the ability to inspire girls and women who participate in our programs to:*
♥ Value who they are internally over their external appearance
♥ Be empowered to change the conversation from criticism to kindness
♥ Stop comparing themselves to a false idea of beauty and to others
♥ Find inspiration to embrace their purpose in the world

*The weekend immersion will include:*
♥ Participation in an Embody Love Workshop led by A Certified Trained Faculty Member
♥ The being and doing of facilitation: holding safe space
♥ Projection, transference, and shadow work in groups
♥ Using yoga as a tool to find and keep body acceptance
♥ Finding your voice and sharing your truth: story telling that heals
♥ The detriments of body shaming and comparison
♥ Teaching media literacy and demystifying standard of beauty
♥ Practice, practice, practice of facilitation through role play
♥ How to spread the LOVE revolution to your community

A Guided Process to Certification:
While exhilarating and empowering, facilitating can sometimes be tough. We get it. Holding space for girls and women can bump up against some of our own insecurities. Because of this, our certification process includes a mentoring component. After your training, you will participate in two mentoring sessions with your CF-T so that she can answer any questions that you may have about the process of facilitation, setting up workshops, building community, etc. Our mentoring process gives you the opportunity to grow and learn from the guidance and support of our experienced facilitators. 
* Please note that these mentoring sessions will be an additional cost to the training and fees will be paid directly to your CF-T.  

Bringing ELM to Your Community:
Once you have participated in Facilitator Training, you will be able to start hosting workshops in your community. You will have the knowledge and skill set to offer various curriculum to various groups of individuals. Your niche will arrive if you let it unfold.  

Our financial model allows facilitators the freedom to set their own price for each workshop provided, with the understanding that a percentage of income will be donated back to Embody Love Movement. This model empowers you to draw in what feels right to you and, at the same time, give back to the organization so that we can continue to offer and deliver to the greater whole. Facilitators are also more than welcome to deliver workshops at no cost and volunteer their time. We hold no expectations regarding which path you choose for any given workshop.

Meditation by Donation -- A Perfect Meditation Practice

843A0503.jpg

Each month we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month will benefit The Warm Place.

A Perfect Meditation Practice

Do you have ideas about what would make your meditation practice perfect? In this month’s practice we’ll explore a familiar part of our personality structure* that wants to measure up to some standard of what we think is perfect (or as close to perfect as we can get!). The practice will be useful for beginners who wonder if they are doing it right, and more experienced meditators who are seeking ways to work with the inner critic, who is notorious for robbing us of our serenity. The evening will include an initial guided meditation to help you to tune into your own experience and a longer meditation with instruction and a mudra to evoke serenity. We’ll integrate the practice with group inquiry and conversation.

Your host for this practice is Terry Stevens. Terry has been immersed in the human potential movement for much of her adult life, as a business leader, writer, teacher, executive coach and a seminarian student of The Diamond Approach. She brings a variety of movement, inquiry, adult learning models and meditative practices to support clients in accessing and growing their personal presence, the foundation for sustained purpose and practical, elegant functioning in the world.

About Gabrielle:

Yoga keeps Gabrielle grounded and tuned into both herself and life around her. She said, "Yoga always brings me back to an abundance of love, compassion and gratitude; and I experience more clarity and strength in my body and mind!" She expressed that practicing yoga has helped her to feel more peaceful with life, and enjoys helping others find inner peace as well. She dedicates much of her time to helping people learn the benefits of yoga, and the experience gives back to her in so many incredible ways. She feels driven to share this knowledge with anyone who wants to learn! Gabrielle,(or Gabby), has been practicing Yoga for 18 years and meditation for 12 years. She has been teaching Yoga and meditation for 9 years. Due to chronic pain in her body from repetitive movement, she realized she had to make a positive change for herself. She obtained her 200 Hours certification in Vajra Yoga and Meditation, with Jill Satterfield in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, and New York City. Over the years, she has accumulated many hours of study with various teachers and styles of yoga. Attending a lot of workshops, retreats, and teaching group/private classes, workshops, and retreats. She has developed a well rounded style of her own. Her education focused a lot on alignment within each asana/pose, and how to bring our mind into our body and breath. She feels most comfortable teaching classes at a slower pace. "In this way we can find our alignment, mindful breath, fulfill each pose, before moving on to the next." She studied ballet as a child and into her teen years, and when she found yoga, it made complete sense to her as to why she was so drawn to it, and became active about her practice from the very start. Gabrielle has also been a songwriter and musician for 23 years. She has toured throughout the United States and many parts of Europe with the band she plays in, The Cush,with her husband. She is very passionate about playing, writing, and recording music, and loves to experience positive energy through the power of music! Gabby has mostly studied: Hatha, Iyengar, Vajra, Anusara, & Restorative. Her classes have been described as: Grounding, Strengthening, Challenging, Meditative, & Relaxing.

A note from Gabby: "I feel much gratitude to be given the opportunity to teach Yoga. I'm inspired by other people's practice everyday. It is a blessing!"

“EMBRACE is a social impact documentary that explores the issue of body image. The project has been supported by nearly 9000 Kickstarter pledgers who responded to a fundraising trailer I released in 2014, which has now had over 25 million internet views.

The inspiration for EMBRACE came about after I posted an unconventional before-and-after image on the internet in 2013 that sparked an international media frenzy. The image, which embraces body diversity, was seen by over 100 million people worldwide and led to hundreds of interviews and articles. But I soon realized how restrictive 4-minute TV interviews, 800 word articles and 140 characters on Twitter can be. This issue needed a louder voice on a bigger platform, so the idea of creating the documentary EMBRACE was born.” – Embrace Director Taryn Brumfitt

Meditation by Donation -- The 9 Basic Personality Structures

Each month we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month will benefit The Warm Place.

What makes it challenging for you to sit quietly and meditate? In this month’s practice we’ll explore a familiar part of our personality structure* that finds it challenging to follow through with a consistent, persistent meditation practice. Whether you are a beginner or more seasoned, you have likely experienced the tendency to procrastinate, forget or give up on your practice.

This meditation practice invites you to come closer to your own living experience of being fully awake, alive and present to yourself and the moment. We will explore the role of your body in building your capacity to be present, to follow through with your intentions, on the cushion and in your life. Our practice will include some movement to wake up our bodies and a longer 20 minute meditation with instruction. We’ll integrate the practice with group inquiry and conversation.

Your host for this practice is Terry Stevens. Terry has been immersed in the human potential movement for much of her adult life, as a business leader, writer, teacher, executive coach and a seminarian student of The Diamond Approach. She brings a variety of movement, inquiry, adult learning models and meditative practices to support clients in accessing and growing their personal presence, the foundation for sustained purpose and practical, elegant functioning in the world.

Great Balls of Fire - Self Care Through Soft Tissue Work

Self-Care Through Soft Tissue Work with Dr Tiffany Denny

The quest for wellness is no longer about finding the perfect provider to prescribe an intervention and solve all our problems — as it turns out, wellness is about so much more. In the end, each of us must advocate for and act in the interest of our own health. This workshop is all about learning effective self-soft tissue work with the assistance of balls, yoga blankets, yoga blocks, and your own body. 

We will work from the bottom-up, mobilizing fascial and muscle tissues in key areas of our bodies. But it is not enough to mobilize the soft tissue — to make real changes in the state and performance of important tissues, we must reeducate the system by actively moving and engaging our bodies through new ranges of motion. This workshop will demonstrate why this is important, and how to accomplish it. 

These techniques are perfect to use for your own self-care, to incorporate into your yoga classes if you are a yoga teacher, or to incorporate into the home exercise component of your practice if you are a medical professional. 

If you register by June 10, you will receive a set of Yoga Tune Up® balls to take home!

Yoga teachers registered through Yoga Alliance are eligible to receive CEUs for participation in the workshop.

Meditation by Donation -- The 9 Basic Personality Structures

IMG_1472.JPG

Each month we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month will benefit The Warm Place.

Meditation: The Nine Basic Personality Structures  

Our ordinary experience is often clouded over with aspects of our personality that interfere with our ability to see, think and behave objectively.  When we practice meditation, we seek to quiet our personality (which includes our habitual way of thinking, our instinctive reactions to challenges and our heart’s confusions) and make contact with our deeper, more objective, essential self.

In our May practice, we will begin a practice series designed to help you explore, through mudras, mantras and movements, a more objective version of yourself and your potential. Over the course of several bi-monthly practices, we’ll use the well-known system of the Enneagram to gain a deeper appreciation of the nine personality styles that color our lives, and the nine corresponding essential views of reality.

Our May practice features the Enneagram Type Eight personality: the powerful, dominating, self-confident, willful and confrontational part of ourselves. We’ll explore some of the main features of this part of personality, including its core function of protecting the self. We’ll discuss how the features of this type often can inhibit true freedom of being, leaving you angry, willful and vengeful, or inform you, leading to true strength, resilience and self-surrender.

We’ll work with several mantras, a mudra and a yoga pose, each designed to evoke what is essential and objectively true about this aspect of our true nature. The 90 minute practice will include a discussion as well as several short practice sessions and a 20 minute meditation to bring the elements of discussion and practice together.

July’ s practice will feature Enneagram Type Nine: The Peacemaker

September’s practice will work with Enneagram Type One: The Reformer

November’s practice will feature Enneagram Type Two: The Helper

January, 2018: Enneagram Type Three: The Achiever

March 208: Enneagram Type Four: The Individualist

May 2018: Enneagram Type Five: The Investigator

July 2018: Enneagram Type Six: The Loyalist

September 2018: Enneagram Type Seven: The Enthusiast

Your host for this practice is Terry Stevens. Terry has been immersed in the human potential movement for much of her adult life, as a business leader, writer, teacher, executive coach and a student of The Diamond Approach. People appreciate the blend of backbone and heart that characterize Terry’s coaching style. She brings a variety of movement, inquiry, adult learning models and meditative practices to support clients in accessing and growing their personal presence, the foundation for sustained purpose and practical, elegant functioning in the world.

Meditation by Donation -- Giving Freely

Each month we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month will benefit the Whole Heart Yoga.

Give Freely

During this month’s meeting we will discuss Generosity and its display on and off the cushion. We will examine the many ways one can offer generosity and it’s effect on our overall gratitude. We’ll also discuss how generosity is an effective antidote to unskillful and excessive desire. After our evening’s discussion, we’ll put generosity into practice through a guided meditation that will last 20 minutes.

Our host this evening is A.J. Fichera, who has been a Buddhist practitioner and meditator for over 14 years. He was formerly a student of Vietnamese Zen at the Quang Chieu Monastery which led to the teachings of Ajahn Geoff (Thanissaro Bhikkhu) in the lineage of the Thai Forest Tradition.
