Radical Relaxation: Evolution of a Revolution with Joe Somodi

  • This workshop will teach you how to radically relax but in the most productive and meaningful way. Why is this relaxation radical? Because very few people understand the physical components that induce the body into a deeper state of rest and even less actually practice it on a regular basis. Not only will you learn what the body needs in order to relax, you will receive countless tools for a daily practice. Passive relaxation is very popular, like watching television, hanging out with friends or getting a massage. This workshop is about active involvement. It’s about using internal awareness, visualizations, physical poses and breath work to release stress and anxiety. This workshop will be very inter active. You will be asked to reflect on your own life and make new commitments. Independent studies will give you the opportunity to be in the driver’s seat of your own relaxation destination. You will also receive a mini-workbook that will give you space to reflect and jot down all your ah ha moments. You are in for a radical ride, but are you ready to truly relax?

Japa Meditation with Ann

  • Learn and practice this form of meditation which focuses the mind on a mantra that is repeated once for each bead on a mala, a string of one hundred and eight prayer beads. This month, Ann introduces you to the mantra, Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha. There will be a discussion on its meaning in our Yoga practice and daily lives and instruction on using a mala to count the repetitions. This form of meditation is particularly useful for those who have trouble keeping the mind from straying off during meditation practice as it uses a tactile focus, fingers on the beads, as well as a mental focus, thinking mind on the mantra. Bring your own mala, or purchase one at Dew. Meditation is by donation of any amount to the instructor. No experience is necessary, all are welcome.
