🌝 Yin Yoga Level 2 ☯️

with Amanda Whiting and guest teacher Jaya Amy

November 27-29, 2020
Friday 5:30-9:30 / Sat & Sun 8-5:00

Testimonials:
“I feel much more comfortable being able to lead a class with the knowledge gained from Level 2. There is so much more about yin than what you get from participating in a class and Level 2 really reveals a lot of layers that make me so excited to be able to plant seeds of knowledge.” ~ Anonymous
 
 
“The teachers embody the qualities of yin. Their interplay of personalities and knowledge bring the qualities of yin and yang alive. This training left me with a deep understanding of yin yoga’s philosophy and physical and spiritual benefits. I feel confident in applying the information I learned when teaching a yin yoga class.” ~Jenn

Yin yoga is a practice of depth, intensity, nourishment and intuition. While exploring the body’s deep connective tissues, energetic pathways and organ functions, a profound meditative portal opens, providing space and new ways of being in the physical experience.

Although we are experiencing a two-week hiatus from in-person classes, the Prana communitys bonds run deep. Just as mycelium networks unite apparently individual mushrooms beneath the soil, we are connected in ways we cannot see. Practice with us, and your sense of connection may flourish in the midst of seemingly isolating circumstances.

Namaste,

Your Prana Family 🍄🍄

  • Please keep voices low while in the reception area and change room/washroom. The yoga rooms are silence only zones, please use the reception area for conversations with friends and teachers.
  • Please refrain from wearing scented products (perfumes, after shave, etc.) as some students are extremely sensitive.
  • Come well hydrated and with a light stomach (avoid eating heavy foods for 2-3 hours before your practice). Wear bare feet and light weight clothing that is easy to move in.
  • Let your instructor & reception know if you are pregnant, or if you have any injuries or medical conditions they should be aware of.  If you have serious allergies or medical conditions such as epilepsy, type 1 diabetes, heart conditions, high/ low blood pressure, etc. please unsure reception has proper up-to-date emergency contact info. Please note: Hot yoga should be discussed with your doctor prior to coming to class if you are pregnant or have other health conditions.
  • If you know you will need to leave class early, please place your mat near the door, and exit before savasana (laying relaxation) begins.
  • We recommend that all Prana students receive our e-mail newsletter, to stay current on holiday closures, schedule changes, registration periods, pass discounts, and special events. You can sign up for our newsletter on our website.
  • To reserve your spot for drop-in classes, sign in on-line. If you can not make a booking, we require 6 hours advance cancellation to make space for those on the waitlist. If you do not cancel your booking on-line more then 6 hours in advance, you may be charged a $15 fee or lose the privilege to pre-book in the future.

If you are unable to attend due to medical reasons (doctors note required) a credit may be issued to your account to use at a later date.
  • Practicing yoga a few times weekly is recommended for continuity and growth; however, 1x or 2x per week is also extremely beneficial.  Try various styles and teachers to find your niche.
  • Children under the age of 11 are not permitted in adult classes unless approval has been given from Prana Management. Children that have not gone through puberty are not able to go into the hot class.
  • Yoga is non-competitive. Please go at your own pace. Be respectful towards your body, never moving to the point of pain, and rest as needed.
  • Most importantly, relax and enjoy!  Yoga is a powerful, delightful, and transformational practice, leaving you feeling refreshed and energized. Cumulatively, the process will enrich every aspect of your life, providing balance and inspiration for body, mind and spirit.

  • Therapeutic students: As many of you are recovering from injuries and surgeries, please be kind to your body and work at your own pace. Always communicate any old / new injuries or surgeries with your teacher. This class uses a wide variety of props, please help us in making sure they are put back in the prop closets neatly, ask for assistance if you are unsure of how to put them away properly. Remember to sign-in every class.
