SUNDAY at 12PM!
Savasana Secrets Workshop at Samskara Yoga & Healing

We call savasana the most important posture in a yoga class, but not because it means we are done! Learn why we “take a nap” at the end of yoga and how to make those minutes the most effective part of your class.

Why do we move (asana) before we rest (savasana)?
How does savasana differ from rest?
What is the best way to DO savasana?
Learn this and more, plus get plenty of time to rest, digest, and savasana (without the yoga!)

Schedule: March 15 @ 12PM, $10/person. Register at events.samskara.yoga

Meditation for Beginners Workshop at Samskara Yoga & Healing

A meditation practice can be challenging to begin, start again, or strengthen – even for the most devoted practitioner. Meditation is a life skill that can help reduce stress and anxiety, ease depression, and encourage a deeper understanding of the self and the world we live in.

In this beginner meditation workshop, you will learn three types of meditation and how to prepare for each, including how to begin and finish a meditation. We will also discuss meditation journals and other tools for mindfulness.

This training will focus on props, posture modifications, alternative sequencing, and body positive classroom language.

EARLY BIRD PRICING ENDS 3/15! “The development of Tuning Fork Therapy® is based on the belief that as sound waves pass through the body, they elicit responses within the body’s systems. These systems react to the sound waves and vibrations created and use them to restore to a healthier and more harmonic base.”

Students will be introduced into the science of sound and how to use Tuning Fork Therapy® to create balance and harmony for the body. Students will be taught Tuning Fork Therapy’s simple methods and techniques that can be applied for yourself, family and friends. Learn how to incorporate these methods to use in daily routines or incorporate into your own healing practice. No prior experience is necessary.

April 18, 1-7 PM (Registration closes April 4)
Total class cost is $350 (includes $100 non-refundable materials fee).

In this workshop, we'll explore the main themes of the Gita, and begin to understand how and why this is one of the most important texts in all of human literature.

This course will also include a wonderful yoga practice, pranayama and a Yoga Nidra practice as a prelude and, a specific meditation at the end.

This course is suitable for all levels of yoga practitioner and also provides continuing education hours for yoga instructors.

The LoCo lifestyle can make anyone a little crazy!

Loudoun County and surrounding Northern Virginia has a culture all its own. We literally live and breathe in an area that makes headlines for the health, wealth, and other opportunities.

What we don’t always see is that we also have friends, neighbors, and others in the community with insight, information, products, and/or services that can make our lives even better. We may be too busy trying to beat traffic on our commute or making sure we are at the right soccer or ball field at the right time. Time out with friends? Time out for US!?! These are often the least of our priorities.

Little do we know, we could pass a reflexology expert on the sidewalk as we go to check our mail. Our favorite beverage could be just a pop-up store or farmer’s market away. Our kids could even hold the solution for another’s better living.

LoCo Wellness Events strive to create connections, support, and solutions for better living… even in this LoCo world.

We all have something to offer; this is an opportunity to learn more about local businesses and meet other, like-minded neighbors who share your same passion, curiosity, and motivation for wellness.
