About your teacher: Stacy Whittingham

“Strengthening the body is wonderful, let’s start there. But strengthening the body, mind and spirit brings healing and wholeness. In that place we can do anything.”

Stacy is a 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified instructor and leads classes, retreats and teacher trainings in the Sacramento area. Stacy has enjoyed leading Bulldog Yoga since 2014. Stacy received her training through Rusty Wells of Urban Flow Yoga in San Francisco. “My intention is for classes to feel energetic and powerful giving the physical body a chance to expand energy and become stronger. But even more importantly my hope is that they offer a sacred time for practitioners to have the opportunity to go within, find balance (pun intended) and connect with their true intentions”

Cacao Dream & Sound Journey with Winter Jendayi

Date: Saturday June 16th

Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Investment: $20/advance registration $25/walk-in

 

Open your heart with sacred cacao and journey with the beat of the drum to a place within where stillness is found. In this place there is Knowing, and we find surrender allowing ourselves to explore new dimensions, carried by the wings of music and purified by healing plants. In this space we find healing; cultivating trust in our allies as we receive insight and clarity from this realm to bring back with us into our daily lives.

Cacao, commonly used in and known as chocolate, is a medicinal plant from Central and South America which is traditionally used in ceremonies and assists in opening the heart.  Winter uses only medicinal-grade cacao sourced from a women’s collective in Guatemala. 

Shamanic journeying uses drum beats as a tool to induce alpha and theta brain waves guiding one into a deep state of relaxation and meditation. In this state, intuition is awakened, allowing access to symbols and memories which offer clarity, soul guidance and connection with inner wisdom.

Melt away tension and bring balance to your body.

This two-day workshop will blend traditional yin yoga and myofascial release techniques. Each 2-hour class you will be guided through a series of poses and techniques to effectively mobilize and hydrate soft tissues, ease tension and bring fresh blood flow to tired, stiff muscles. We will also discuss the uncanny parallels between the energetic meridian lines of traditional Chinese Medicine and the physical myofascial meridian lines of Western Medicine. This will be a slow-paced therapeutic class and each session will focus in-depth on select parts of the body. We will use various tools, props, and pranayama (breath-work) to explore commonly tight areas such as the hips, low back, neck and shoulders. We will also work with some of our lesser thought about, but equally worthy of our attention areas such as the hands and soles of the feet.

In this 2-day workshop you will:
-Slow down and tune-in

-Relax, release and hydrate your soft tissues
-Discover which yin postures and which myofascial release techniques are most effective for each meridian and fascial line

-Use techniques that will help balance the flow of energy, known as chi or qi (chee)

-Learn poses and techniques to support the health of your organs.
