Winter Solstice 108 Sun Salutations
Friday, December 19
$15.00 Per Person
Sign Up Today!

In winter, nature slows all outward growth; the earth contracts, stops producing, and instead pauses to replenish its inner energy reserves. Our inner world also slows down with this contracting cycle of nature, and therefore we need to make extra efforts to ignite our digestive fires.

In this more stagnant season, sun salutations promote circulation and emotional well-being while encouraging spinal fluidity.

Please join Jen for this healing and energizing practice. The flow of poses will be accompanied by the traditional mantras. Participants do NOT need to complete every sun salutation; but that challenge is there, if you want it! Pausing to rest is acceptable and encouraged. Simply stay in the spirit of the practice, with the option of resting in Mountain Pose or Child's Pose.

Please bring your mat, a full bottle of water, and a hand towel to this practice. This extended class will conclude with a few seated postures, a twist, and Yoga Nidra.

(No prior yoga experience required!)

Monica Kessler

Monica Kessler, RYT-200

Fitness has always been a part of Monica's life. In 2002, Monica was introduced to yoga at the gym she was attending. At that moment, she knew she found much more than just another way to break a sweat. Desiring to learn more about this beautiful practice, Monica arrived at Donna Dyer's Yoga H'om. It was there that the 'yoga' she had been practicing transformed from being just a physical exercise into a complete mind, body and life changing experience. Knowing how greatly this practice affected her life, Monica knew in her heart that she had to share this practice with others and enrolled into Donna's 200-hour teacher training program in 2011. Monica's intention is to uplift and send you on your way to a better day. She will continue to grow and expand her knowledge by studying under Max Strom, Desiree Rumbaugh (Anusara) and Kino MacGregor (Ashtanga) as well as many more yoga masters in the years to come!

Monica Majoris, RYT-200

Monica Majoris, RYT-200

Monica was introduced to yoga while she was in high school by her mother, who ranted and raved about the final relaxation at the end of her yoga class (known as Savasana). Monica was apprehensive about it until she tried it for the first time in late 2007. In 2008, Yoga quickly became her passion and knew she wanted to become a teacher. She found, thru Yoga, ways to make herself feel better... not just with her body, but with her heart, mind, AND body. She encourage students to go inward and focus on their breath and body. Her style includes Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, and Gentle Yoga. Her mission is to make people feel good… not just in their bodies, but in their heart and mind as well. She encourages students to find their sense of humor and to just have fun with their time on the mat. Monica has studied with renowned Yoga Instructors Rodney Yee and Desiree Rumbaugh.
