Pranayama is the practice of controlling the breath, which is the life force, or prana, running through the body. We will learn to control the inhales, exhales and retentions, and go over the benefits of breath control. We will explore each pranayama technique and how they can have multitude of effects on the body and mind. Join Kristin Coy in this 1-hour class to explore the body and breathe.
Whether we’ve practiced on our mat only once or a million times, there is always something to learn, something to discover, and something to take away from it. No matter where you are in your yoga journey, whether you’ve lost touch with your practice, you’d like to learn more, or you are just starting out, you can always BEGIN, AGAIN. This month-long workshop will kickstart your year with not just resolutions, but a deeper understanding of your habits and goals, both on and off your mat.
We all know it takes lots of work and sometimes our relationship with ourselves and our practice may ebb and flow, but this is your perfect chance to BEGIN, AGAIN. Join us!

JOY AND STRENGTH: A WEEKEND OF BHAKTI AND FOREST YOGA
w/ Milard Roper
see schedule below
Join Milard Roper for a weekend of Bhakti, movement, and learning, as we meet for six workshops diving into kirtan, Forrest Yoga, the history of our practice and the joy of getting upside down. Owner of The Funky Om studios and Jiu Jitsu School on Long Island, NY, becoming a yoga teacher was a natural progression for Milard. He is a licensed Acupunturist, Massage Therapist as well as a Board Certified Chinese Herbalist. Milard has also taught Kung Fu and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for many years. His passion for these arts and his innate knowledge of the body comes through clearly when he is teaching yoga. Milard’s enthusiasm for life and the balance he has created in his professional and personal life is inspirational to his students, patients, friends and family. Milard was trained directly by Ana Forrest and Raghunath. Milard incorporates Ana’s focus on alignment and connecting to the breath as well as Raghunath’s strong physical practice and rich tradition of yogic philosophy into his classes. Owing everything to his teachers he feels blessed to have made such powerful connections both in the Forrest and Bhakti communities.
Our weekend consists of SIX two hour workshops:
Friday, January 17, 6-8pm: Forrest Yoga Class
Saturday, January 18, 12-2pm: Forrest Yoga for Teachers
Saturday, January 18, 2:30-4:30pm: Kirtan 101
Saturday, January 18, 5-7pm: The Lost Tradition of Yoga
In this two hour workshop, we will discuss the journey of finding comfort as a man on your mat in the studio. We will open a conversation to discuss etiquette and navigation in any studio, and work through a practice that incorporates poses that address issues specifically for the male body. We will also address common flexibility and mobility limitations and learn how to combine breath and movement to persevere through any situation. We will be combining strength with increased flexibility, with the benefit of decreasing the risk of injury in other activities and sports. Finally, we will quiet our thoughts and reflect on how the practice of yoga improves the overall masculine wellness of body, mind and soul.
"Practice that is done for a long time, without break and with sincere devotion becomes a firmly rooted, stable, and solid foundation" - sutra 1.14
The new year often feels like a time to commit to something that creates growth and change in our lives. Every January, however, it becomes quickly apparent how easily New Years resolutions fade, working too hard for a fast goal that is unsustainable. So for 2020, we challenge you, not to a resolution, but to Resolve...to your practice.
Sign up for Resolve by January 1, and commit to show up to your mat at the studio 2 times/week (104 practices in 2020). In return, you will receive:
- $10 off every month of your monthly contract for the entire next calendar year or $120 credit on your account for class passes in 2021
- 50% off our "Begin Again" workshop series to kick you off in January and
- a tee to commemorate your abhyasa (steady practice) at the end of the year
Signing up will cost you $40, but the commitment to your mat will hopefully endure far longer, and in much more meaningful ways. Make your resolution for 2020 stick by committing to Resolve...to yourself.
Join us for an opportunity to unwind, release and reconnect in this two hour Yin Yoga workshop, led by Rebecca Robertson, with hands-on myofascial release offered by Megan Flinn.
