    Yoga CORE 90 Day Challenge- 6 Classes and Work At Home Program

    In the West we generally judge the health of an individual on their overall size and shape. Unfortunately this is not a true evaluation of a healthy body. Large and small people have pain in their lower back, SI, knees, shoulders and hips. We struggle with tension in our upper backs, stress and anxiety. Arches and feet are falling. Childbirth can leave the muscles of the pelvic area stretched and weak. Strong superficial muscles can hide all of this on the outside but do nothing to bring the body ease. Regardless of your overall health or fitness, this 90-day Yoga CORE challenge is about using the strength of inner core (skeletal) muscles of the abdomen and legs to build true strength, balance and harmony in the lower body. Any instability in these muscles create instability, discomfort and even pain in the lower and upper body, pain in joints and muscles and even sexual and elimination dysfunction.

    Specifically the Yoga 12 Week CORE challenge will include:

    • Take a pre-class survey and a post class assessment to gage real results in your body
    • Foundational yoga concepts of breathe, body and mind all working in conjunction to build a healthier body with balance, strength, flexibility and relaxation.
    • Identify, learn how to connect to and strengthen the inner core muscles of the abdomen (diaphragm, pelvic floor, inner obliques and multifidus) and legs
    • Weekly progressive class asana (postures) to bring initial concepts into everyday movement
    • A daily commitment to 15-20 minutes at home to work the program and to let the results develop

    “After a frustrating attempt at doing yoga by watching videos, I took a “core yoga” class from Christa and learned the proper techniques for breathing and body alignment. After just a few sessions, I was surprised to find myself running much faster with less effort, and experiencing absolutely no pain.  I would highly recommend…”– Harold

    Class schedule: Mondays 6:30-8:00 pm CST- Backus Room 303 April 13th; April 27th; May 11th; May 25th; June 8th and June 22nd

    $145.00 due at time of registration to hold space in class. Pre-registration and payment due by Friday, April 10th. Preregistration needs to be paid via Backus or mail…call or email to hold your spot! Minimum class counts required to hold class as scheduled.

    Prenatal Yoga

    We are looking to see if there is any interest in a prenatal class. Yoga is a wonderful practice for pregnant women and can be a great time to start a practice even if you have never done yoga before!

    Just a few benefits for soon to be moms are:

    • Mobility in hips
    • Strengthening the pelvic floor
    • Addressing back pain
    • Relaxation/ tension release
    • Flexibility and balance through the legs

    Introduction to Meditation I

    Tuesday, May 19th 6-8pm

    It is a new year—and we can choose to live a new way! Meditation has been used for thousands of years for quieting the mind to bring calm, peace and clarity to our thoughts, words and deeds. Meditation includes relaxation, focus, stress management and breathing techniques that help calm the body, mind and spirit. Meditation is an opportunity to know our true selves, enhance our prayer practice and bring peace and clarity to our thoughts. Meditation can enhance every aspect of our living!

    Class outline is as follows:

        * introduction to the 8 Limbs of Ashtanga yoga. An eight step process for meditation that has been around since at least 1800 BC that makes the process understandable and easy to learn

        * ancient yogi and current Christian medical views of how the mind works. understand what is physically happening in meditation and discuss the power of the mind that requires we learn how to think in a positive, clear and truthful way

        * practical step by step review of a traditional meditation practice with opportunity to experience the systematic steps with guided meditations and an opportunity to experience a personal method that works with your spirituality and faith

    We do not discuss and teach ourselves in the West the value of slowing down, breathing, giving space to thoughts words and deeds in an effort to really be an on-going, growing and better version of ourselves. We CAN have a great year and a great life.....but sometimes less is more and slowing down for the opportunity to listen to our hearts and those around us, allow change/different directions to evolve and to be true to our path does not happen. We need more, faster and better in our Western world and we miss so much that is already there. We are programmed to think external sources bring us happiness and love...we are happy when our families, spouses, kids, friends, bosses, employees, service personnel....all do things the way we like, when we want and without difficulties! Yoga teaches happiness comes from the inside out...when we find happiness within, we have all we need without.

    $50.00 per student; pre-registration and payment required by Sunday, May 17th ; call or email to register

    Taught by Christa Heibel-Certified RYT 500 Hatha Yoga and Himalayan Meditation
