Agni Sara

Fire in the belly, can be destructive when it signals Pitta imbalance. It shows up in oh so many ways:  depression, stomach aches with fancy names, indigestion, and emotional triggers of anger, irritability in all its forms.    Through thoughtful practice of the yoga sequences of agni sara, fire can be contained and it becomes useful, good, energy.

My downtown, noontime class, TUESDAYS, at the Parish House of Saint James Episcopal Church ( 119 North Duke Street, next to the Public Library ) works on balance in all ways. So Agni Sara is part of our practice, along with alignment and learning to manage our bodies in space.

Good Night Sleep

The dark time of year – windy, restless, unsettled – is upon us. It’s the time to rest, rejuvenate, hibernate when you can. A restless mind can take time to settle.

The poses in this Friday night yoga practise will focus on being grounded, promoting stillness. Then, to emphasize the good in sleep patterns we will share Ayurveda knowledge that promotes sleep. For example, Vata and Kapha sleep on the left side, Pitta on the right.

Come, find out why, find out more about good sleep. Bring a pair of old socks. Your registration fee covers a small sample of therapeutic grade oil, blended for this purpose.

Friday October 27, 6 to 8 p.m.

November News

Tuesdays at noon, Downtown Lancaster
Saint James Parish House, 119 North Duke Street.

Be a Warrior.  Review of Agni Sara in the Standing Poses. Beginning our work on opening the shoulders. That includes the neck, the jaw, you know all those parts that come together and get tight, but it feels normal.IMG_1182

Its not necessary to stand on your head. But we definitely find enough easy safe inversions that you can refresh your brain in this class..

You probably worry about parking. Well, we stand on the porch for about ten minutes before noon, to show you where to enter the building the first time. If all else fails you can park in the Duke Street garage one time. Often we see open spaces in front of the building. If not, you can do a circle, turning right on Orange, right on Queen, and right on Chestnut, go round and round till you find something you like.

This sequenced session on classical Hatha Yoga is designed to prepare the body for Mindfulness – in Meditation and in carrying out our daily life.  A 6-week class card cost is $75 or a Drop In Donation Fee of $17. per class.
The Parish House is located next to the Public Library, downtown Lancaster, at 119 North Duke Street.  Open to members of Saint James Episcopal Church and the public. A portion of the fees for this donation-based class will be used for the extensive social ministry programs at Saint James Church.
