RELAX

with Kari Jacobsen and Michelle CorderoYoga and Cranial Sacral Therapy
The past two events this spring were sold out quick. We are planning more in the fall. Stay tuned!

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are. – Chinese Proverb

Are you feeling overworked, drained or sensitive to the world? Are you curious about developing your awareness of the subtle body and connecting to your inner intelligence? Do you need some love and kindness via a healing and skillful touch​?

Join Kari and Michelle for a deeply relaxing and restorative afternoon. Class features a simple Yin and Restorative yoga practice, during which Kari and Michelle will offer nurturing hands-on work inspired by trainings in Cranio Sacral Therapy.  Feel first-hand the power of more quiet practices of yoga. Kari will guide you through a series of long stays in yin and restorative poses. As you learn to relax the body into the moment, through support from props and mindful awareness to sensation, the mind becomes more attentive to the body. Beneath the typical thought patterns and through the body’s language of sensation lives our inner wisdom… a place that knows what’s right for you and how to live healthily. In this practice Kari and Michelle will spend quality time working with each student in gentle touch that encourages the body into progressive relaxation.

Class limited to a small group to maximize hands-on attention to each student. All levels welcome, no matter your flexibility, fitness level or experience. ​

EMBODY. EMPOWER.Sensual Yoga with Michelle Cordero - Oakland CA

A sensual yoga leadership training with Michelle Cordero.

Friday, November 10, 6-9pm @Flying MOD
-and-
Saturday, November 11, 1:30-9pm @Flying OG

  • Join a circle of fellow badasses who want to live with purpose and power
  • Discover new ways to communicate with and love your body and your movement
  • Learn to embody so you can send the world a clear message about what you want, deserve, and have to offer
  • Learn to create rituals and ceremony in your daily life

Are you ready?

Friday night is our “Intro to Sensual Yoga,” an opportunity to connect with others who want to live with purpose and power.  You will discover new ways to communicate with and love your body. On Saturday we will go deeper, exploring the Art of Embodiment.  We will learn how to “Drop In” and track feeling through the body.  Find out “What Nurtures You” and finally “Rest into the Throne of the Goddess that you Are”.

Over these two days together, you will build a stronger connection to your legs, core and hips, and deepen your connection to your unique feminine energy.

This course will combine classical yoga asanas with sensual movement and core abdominal strengthening.  Friday is mostly movement, and Saturday is a combination of movement, ceremony, lecture and exploration. Class is centered on appreciating and celebrating the sensuality of the feminine parts of ourselves. Transfeminine, genderfluid, genderqueer, and female-bodied people of all races, colors and creeds are welcome.

Expect great music and a creative flow to bring you out of your head and into your body.  Come let your hair down, and emancipate your hips!  It might possibly be the most fun you’ve had on your yoga mat!

Wear clothing you are comfortable moving in and/or that makes you feel sexy.

You are encouraged to attend the entire weekend for a deeper experience.  Give yourself time to develop trust, feel safe and become more familiar with this movement and the feelings it elicits.  Give yourself this gift, no matter how scary it may seem to jump in fully!

MEXICO YOGA RETREAT
Restore, Relax, Rejuvenate

February 4-10, 2018

Learn the importance of taking time out and giving back to yourself.  Nourish the parts of you that so desperately need attention.

On this retreat, you will feel yourself begin to decompress from the moment you set foot on the property. There are so many ways to soak up the beauty of this incredible retreat center:  lay on the beach, go for a swim, take a walk, read, meditate, make new friends.  Get out of your routine with everything taken care of for you –  three delicious farm to table fresh Mexican meals; eco-luxury accommodations; two yoga classes per day with Michelle; and plenty of time to just…BE.  You do you, every day every moment.

Toward the end of the week, you will have an opportunity to experience a local indigenous purification tradition, the “Temazcal” sweat lodge ceremony.
