Ashtanga Yoga with Mara Healy

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 6:00-8:00am

Location: Be Yoga Carmel

Sign Up Now!

Ashtanga is the original power yoga. It is a systematic sequence of predetermined flowing postures linked together with the breath, but without music. If you like a strong power yoga or vinyasa class then you should find this challenging and rewarding. Ashtanga practice comprises four main parts:

•an “opening sequence,”
•one of the six main “series”
•a back-bending sequence
•set of inverted asanas, referred to as the “finishing sequence.”
•Practice always ends with savasana

Additionally, this is offered in the mysore style, meaning, each person practices at their own pace and is responsible for memorizing the sequence as it is given to them in small segments. The instructor teaches and guides each student individually and tailors adjustments to each student’s unique needs.

Investment: 1 week for $35, 1 Month Unlimited for $98

Tantra Vinyasa Masterclass with Grace Millsap

Friday 9/29 7:00-8:30pm

Tantra is an ancient practice that weaves mantra, meditation, mudra, pranayama, and asana into one practice, intentionally sequenced to refine and strengthen prana, or our lifeforce. These tools allow us to peel back the layers and discover our true, and more authentic selves. We will harness the natural, slower rhythm of the evening as a way to slow down, release, and let go. Students should expect a moderate asana practice, followed by floor work with longer holds, and end with an extended savasana and meditation.

Ladies, are you fed up with surface level conversations that dance around the thing(s) that need to be said?!? If your answer is YES, you will love this!
This offering will be open to 5 divine women in an intimate group coaching circle where the experience will be co-created with some delicious breath work and light asana to kick off the evening.
You will not have an agenda pushed on you. You will not be told how it has to go. The focus of the group will be chosen by the collective with a handful of ideas being provided (if necessary).
You will speak your truth. You will be present to connection and flow in a gentle and powerful way with everyone receiving the opportunity to participate as fully as their heart desires.
You will determine how the soulversation can be taken out into the “real” world so that the energy isn’t limited to the space and time we are in.
The investment for this transformative, soul nurturing time together will be $50 per person, and the rewards will be reaped forever if you choose it.
Dress in a way that will allow you to be comfortable for the duration of the event. Bringing a journal and something to write with is recommended.

Jenn Shull is a trained ontological life and leadership coach and certified yoga instructor who brought her community Yoga Off the Mat (YOTM) four times in 2016. YOTM was a workshop created to weave together the power of coaching and yoga.
