Christopher Temple: My Miracle

My Miracle
I am waiting for the plane to take me to my rendezvous with my Sonic Yoga Posse. I am meeting them at a beautiful retreat in sunny and warm Costa Rica. I am grateful. I’m here because I said, “yes.” 
Not just “yes” to going on this retreat, but a long line of little “yeses” that brought me to this point. 
I said, “yes” when I thought I was too busy. 
I said, “yes” when I thought that I couldn’t. 
I said “yes” when I didn’t think I was good enough. 
I said, “yes” when I didn’t think I was ready. 
I said, “yes” when I was scared. 
I said, “yes” because I knew deep in my heart that is what the universe wanted me to say. 

YES!  Continue reading

RESTORATIVE PRANA FLOW with Jeffrey Scott Duval

RESTORATIVE PRANA FLOW with Jeffrey Scott Duval
Jeffrey is back! He is excited to share some fresh takes on old classics that focus on the restorative components that naturally derive from the Prana Flow Namaskars and sequences. While the practices are being labeled “restorative”, they differ from the classical yin practices and other static or still ‘proped-up’ practices in that they retain the dynamic vinyasa that are hallmarksks of the Prana Flow system developed by Shiva Rea, yet are more sustainable in effort, many of the asanas are modifications with use of props for ultimate ease and support. Innovative and accessible in nature, these workshops are perfect for anyone looking for an engaging breath-guided and balancing practice.
 
Early Bird Price (Before February 18th) $40
Regular Price $50

February Teacher Spotlight: Lisa Benner

February Teacher Spotlight: Lisa Benner
Bio:
When I was quite young, I created a mission statement for myself:  “To improve my own and other people’s quality of life”.  Much later, it occurred to me that this perspective was founded on an assumption of lack.  I wondered, “How would this look if I was moving from a place of abundance? fullness? perfection?
So often, on the road to health, we believe we have to only seek the light, to clean up the mess, to only be peaceful or happy.  The mess is beautiful.  It is art.  It is part of who we are.  We are the darkness and the light.  We are it all — in fullness and vibrancy.

FULL HEART

Namaste Dear Sonic Community

I am writing with a full heart to send you all the message of holding steady during these times of unsteadiness. We have just passed through the Chinese New Year into the Year of the Fire Rooster. The Fire Rooster favors passion, compassion, calmness and confidence.   It is dominated by the elements of fire and metal. When there is too much fire we feel stress, anger and excitement, too much metal equals anxiety and difficulty letting go of grief. How brilliant that the Fire Rooster knows just what we need right now to anchor during these turbulent times.

I have found in my life that when things are unsteady and I find myself confused or discouraged that my most effective solution is to take action. Not just any action but a well thought out constructive positive healing one. It is so easy to get overwhelmed with emotions and to move into a place of fear, anxiety or anger, but the Fire Rooster is encouraging us to be calm yet confident.

FEB. POSE OF THE MONTH: MICHELLE VANEGAS CHOOSES CAMATKARSANA

POSE OF THE MONTH: MICHELLE VANEGAS CHOOSES CAMATKARSANA

In Sanskrit, Camatkara translates to wonderful, spectacular and miraculous. In various classes I have heard it referred to as ‘wild thing’ or ‘rock star,’ both of which energetically describe how I feel when I am in the full expression of the pose. Camatkarasana includes so many juicy attributes such as backbending, inverting and balancing. It opens your chest, lungs, shoulders, front of the legs, hip flexors and builds strength in the shoulders and upper back. Rock Star pose literally flips and challenges my mental perspective, inspiring a childlike spirit. In addition to help relieve depression, stress and anxiety, Camatkarasana teaches me to surrender, to be open, to expand my heart and throat chakras all the while feeling grounded and connected to earth. Flip it on over to Camatkarasana ya’ll, it’s delicious! Continue reading
