Simply Power Yoga is excited to introduce a new series of 4 week programs for grades 4th-12th.  The program is divided into different age groups to better meet the needs of the youth it will be serving.  The intention of the program is to provide our youth with tools to pause when every day life, school, friends, sports and social media become overwhelming.  Each group will be focusing on how to better recgonize when you either need to Power-Up to stand up for who you are or Unplug to reconnect with who you are. 

The program is based on 40 Days to Personal Revolution by Baron Baptiste.  Discover what is pulling you away from your life and getting in the way of who you want to become. Over the next 4 weeks make a commitment to unplug, pause and reconnect with yourself and others more authentically. 

Through the practice of yoga, discussion and mindfulness meditation you will begin to pause as you recognize patterns and habits, then reconnect and move forward into more purposeful behaviors, conversations and relationships. 

Facilitators: Kelly Ross and Brenda Moore. 
Investment: $65, includes unlimited yoga for duration of program

    An Introduction to Breath-Centered Yoga and Demystifying the Bandhas

    In this highly interactive, experiential session, Leslie will introduce the distincitive breath-centered teachings of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar from a historical, scholarly and anatomical perspective while leading participants into progressively deeper understanding of the vital forces at work in the human breathing mechanism during yoga practice. Details of breath sequencing, coordination with movement and spinal action are some of the elements that comrpise the topic of bandha. Far from being a mystical practice, the good news is the moment we were immediately, implicityly learning banhas whe we first learned to coordinate breath and body movement. From this perspective, deepening our yoga consists of nothing more than uncovering our innate ability to find support and spaciousness through a breath-centered practice.


    2:00-5:00pm
    Re-imagining Alignment: Part 1

    The first part of Leslie's Re-imagining Alignment begins with an historical and anatomical perspective on the subject and functional definition of alignment followed by an exploration of the uniqueness of human structure. Starting with clear, simple principles that govern musculoskeletal function, Leslie will help you put your asana on a solid foundation literally from the ground up (and from your head down).

    Topics include:

    • a historical context for alignment in asana
    • Anatomical definition and principles of alignment
    • The relationship of bandha to support and movement

    The Warrior Series - A Hands-Free Vinyasa Practice

    If you like a strong, flowing, breath-centered yoga practice, but have done more than a few too many down dogs, updogs and chaturangas, then this is the class for you. This practice -heavy workshop will lead you through a specially designed vinyasa that strongly works legs and moves the spine in all possible directions; all without putting any body weight on your hands. the use of breath cueing to achieve alignment and afety objectives will be covered through exploring individual adaptation and modification for individual therapeutic objectives. 

    2:00-5:00pm
    Re-imagining Alignment: Part 2

    Part 2 of Leslie's Re-imagining Alignment relies on students to bring questions about their own asana practice and teaching language. Leslie will promote an experimental, experiential atmosphere of inquiry regarding the teaching of alignment, safety and effective cueing of asana

    • Why Instructions like "tuck your tail, lengthen your spine, square your hips" maybe doing more harm than good, and what kind of language to use instead
    • Breath-centered, anatomically-based cueing
    • The use of Gazing (drishti) and imagery to foster increased neuromuscular integration
