A series of continuing education workshops for teachers and serious students of yoga. Each session will offer an opportunity to earn CEU’s (Continued Education Units) at a reasonable cost, with the added beneﬁt of keeping you close to home! The workshops themselves will bring high quality instruction, presented in a condensed, but easily digestible format. The teachers will be from our own dynamic yoga community, as well as teachers known to us regionally. The hope is that as teachers and students of yoga, we continue to grow and “learn more” together!
Finding Contentment From Within: Santosha with Becky Eschenroeder
Saturday, April 19th 3-6pm
How much time do you spend moving towards where you want to be versus finding contentment with where you are? Where can you create space on your life? What would that space allow you to let in? What do you cling to (mentally and physically)? How could letting go of this allow you to let yourself live more fully and deeply?
Explore these questions and perhaps begin to work towards answers as you join Becky for an exploration of Santosha, the second of the five Niyamas. Navigate towards the steadiness that exists within (no matter what life may have to offer) as we partake in journaling and discussion and flow though a Vinyasa practice. Asana will be followed by progressive relaxation, visualization, and yoga nidra, which encourage true acceptance and inner contentment.
Please dress comfortably and bring a mat, your printed handout and a pen. It’s also best to avoid eating a heavy meal 60 minutes prior to this workshop.
Please arrive 15 minutes early and bring mat for asana practice. 3 CEU’s awarded for completion.
Cost: $30. Must pre-register and pre-pay by 4/16.
Becky Eschenroeder, ERYT-200, trained very closely under Arlene Bjork through Grace Yoga Training Systems before Arlene passed away in late 2009. Yoga has been very healing for Becky, as it gives her a way to stay balanced mentally and physically. In fact, she doesn’t know how she lived for 24 years without it! It has opened her eyes to so many beautiful philosophies and ways of living, and it has led her to meet many astounding individuals. When life gets crazy and uncertain, there is one thing that she is certain of yoga will always be there. Whenever she practices, she can hear the voice of her teacher telling her to simply, “Stay encouraged.”
Becky is currently an Ambassador for both lululemon athletica and Project Yoga Richmond. She is also a trained Ambassador for YoKid… Stretch Your Limits and is currently training to become a YoKid Facilitator Trainer in order to impart the knowledge with fellow teachers how to share to gift of yoga with children. In addition to these, Becky is also in the middle of training with her dear friend Nitya to be able to teach through another children’s format called “Yoga with Nitya.”
