WARRIORS & YINJAS INTENSIVE WORKSHOP

Join Jacqui for this profound experience based on the teachings of Tibetan Warriorship in Vinyasa, Yin & Meditation format. Be part of an experience that is sure to make a genuine imprint on your body & brain through the practice of great movement, stillness & awakening. Let this class help you hit the reset button for the things that fuel your fire & your ability to balance that with recognizing basic goodness & resources again. The key to Warriorship & Yinja mentality is to live a life of sacred appreciation in as many moments as possible. That is one of the healthiest things you can do to strengthen your life force and remain strong for the rest of your breaths. You have been with Jacqui for the past ten years in the Chakra Cleanse to arrange your emotional alignment. This class will be focused on your mental alignment & how you can remain organized, steady and even JOYFUL in all situations. How you can navigate difficulty with warrior intelligence and instant ninja-like perspective.  And when it all falls apart, Warriorship helps you see the beauty of that too. Learn the keys, the asanas, the mental/physical formations & arrangements to command your world. Jacqui teaches a weeklong retreat every Fall at Kripalu with the same title.  This workshop was born from wanting to share some of the highlights for those who can’t always make it!

Yoga Nidra with Pam Godbois

Instructor: Pam Godbois

Price = $25

Combine the benefits of the breath, flowing asana and aroma therapy from exotic and mesmerizing essential oils with the relaxation of Yoga Nidra. 

This class begins with the use of oils and sequences through a Vinyasa style flow (movement with breath) that grows from a gentle flow and builds on itself through the use of Moon salutations, standing and seated poses to open the physical body, and work out the kinks of the day. Once the body is ready, the mind will calm and open.  Coming into a supported and comfortable position the practice finishes with a Yoga Nidra Practice, a guided relaxation, to relax and heal the bodies systems.

Benefits of Practice: Yoga Nidra induces the relaxation response, your body's healing state where revitalization and regeneration occur. Your body knows exactly what to do to attain--and maintain--perfect health and equilibrium, but you need to turn on the healing switch. Yoga Nidra is that healing switch that brings us effortlessly, compassionately, and rapidly out of the fight-or-flight state and into the healing state. This is a gentle and restorative style practice, all levels are welcome and no yoga experience is necessary.

Boundless Freedom with Matt Giordano

Boundless Freedom:

Shoulder Openers Dissolve tension and tightness in your shoulders and learn the biomechanics that make it easy! Many of us fall into patterns where we believe if we continually repeat an action, our goals will eventually workout. This only rings true when we are repeating a recipe for success. Matt Giordano will offer you a yoga practice that gets you into your body and gives you a strong understanding of a complex joint that can otherwise be a bit of a mystery. Having rehabilitated his own shoulder from a nearly shattered collarbone and fractured scapula, Matt’s knowledge speaks from experience and an excitement to share the tools he has picked up along the way. Boundless Freedom is appropriate for all levels. This course can be used for therapeutic and/or advancement purposes.

Cost: 55.00 or 50.00 for Boundless Freedom and Handstand. Space is limited to 15 spots please email downdogflow@gmail.com to sign up! 

Matt Giordono 

At the young age of 7, Matt began studying Martial Arts. The disciplined practice of holding postures while maintaining absolute focus on the breath was strikingly familiar when he began his Yoga journey at age 24. Matt began by exploring many different styles of yoga, and practicing up to 8 hours a day. He found that he gravitated towards more disciplined practices that focused on precise alignment, but he also really enjoyed styles that linked breathing and movement. Naturally, Matt’s teaching style is a powerfully unique blend of alignment, breath, and movement in order to awaken the highest sense of joy within each student.

“Matt leads his class with a sweet-tempered authority, encouraging students to seek within themselves – and smile while doing it.” -alignyo.com

Matt is based in NYC, and travels around passionately sharing his discoveries through workshops, and teacher trainings. Trainings include Pure Yoga, Yoga Tune Up, Integrated Embodied Anatomy, Anusara, AcroYoga and many more.

“Nothing fulfills me more than witnessing people courageously expand their body, mind, and soul. Whether a person walks in ready to celebrate life or is seeking such inspiration, I hope that they leave feeling peaceful in their heart and empowered in their spirit.” – Matt Giordano

David Vendetti The Architecture of the Spine-How to deepen your backbends

Cost: 35.00 early bird before January 9th after 40.00 space is limited sign up today! Email downdogflow@gmail.com to reserve your spot.

Architecture of the Spine

A multidirectional approach to supporting the powerful curves of the spine is crucial in allowing the practitioner to find comfort and ease when backbending. In this thorough examination we will be opening the shoulders, hip flexors, and groin as well as awakening the core before taking a look at the different ways to safely access and understand the grace and beauty of backbending.

 

David Vendetti

Yoga allows me to be who I am without struggle. To notice, breathe, remember and enjoy this body, this moment. I love returning to my yoga mat to play in the body awakening, breathe into a heart wide open and find gratitude for the infinite that I forgot was me. Classes integrate a clear foundation in anatomy with intelligent alignment, hands on adjustments and ever evolving flows to heal the body. Students are encouraged to cultivate a deep passion for self examination, light hearted exploration and drop everything in order to find out that when we hold on to nothing, what is left, is all we truly need. It has been an incredible gift to have studied and trained in yoga, structural bodywork and meditation. I have been honored to meet and practice with so many talented and amazing teachers whose work I cherish and share now as I teach. Thank you Patricia Walden, Ana Forrest, Tom Myers, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Lynne Begier, David Magone, Andrew Cohen, Bo Forbes, Sundara, Pamela Wilson, Arthur Kilmurray, Sri Louise, Byron Katie and Glenn Black for reflecting the limitless. David co-owns South Boston Yoga and won 2005 Best of Boston Yoga Teacher for Boston magazine and along with Todd was the 2009 Boston Prudential Lulumon Ambassador.

Back to your Roots with Jacqui Bonwell

 Cost: 40.00 before Sept. 26th after 45.00. Space is limited sign up today!

“Back to your Roots”

A vinyasa class centered around building a stronger base- physically, mentally & emotionally. Poses purposefully positioned to strengthen the kinetic chain of the body and the major & minor chakras of the energy body. Both focuses will have heavy emphasis on balancing the root chakra. It is this freedom that will promote a more united front when it comes to how mind and body converse together no matter the positions on your mat & no matter the positions in your life. This class is for beginners to advanced. All are welcome and can be accommodated. Live music centered around the root energy will be played in savasana. Please wear something red.

Jacqui Bonwell:   500hr Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT-500),  Level 1 Balanced Athlete ™ Certified coach, Level 1 FMS Functional Movement Systems) certified, Reiki Master, Yoga Life Coach, Director of the Sacred Seeds Yoga School (RYS-200hr level, RYS-500hr level) in the Boston/New England area and Owner of the Canton Yoga Shala in Canton, MA. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Rhode Island.  I work primarily with Yoga Teachers through my 200hr & 300hr Yoga Teacher Training certification programs. Additionally, I provide Life Coaching to help yoga students deepen their practice and apply the teachings to their everyday lives.  My most important credential and greatest training has been Motherhood.

After graduating from college, I travelled extensively and settled back in MA to begin a 10 year career in Social Services that took me everywhere from Boston neighborhoods to Ireland to Oregon. During my social services career, I had the privilege of meeting amazing people who did more than persevere; they transformed. At the same time, I witnessed a darker side of life that felt like sandpaper to my soul.  There are defining moments in life when we wonder if we are in the right place or if we are heading in the right direction. Distance helps us to see things clearly. Yoga provided me with the space I needed to reflect and regroup.  After ten years of giving 110% I developed ulcers from stress.  My body had dictated that I had learned how not to live. That is when I left Social Services. The children I met through this career are my true teachers for life. I have the utmost admiration for each of them and continue to pray for their ease and freedom.

 I completed the Open Doors Teacher Training out of Weymouth, MA. This program not only touched on the teachings of yoga (power vinyasa, hatha & restorative yoga) but included strong energy healing components.  I met a wonderful mentor, Reiki Master & Teacher, Pat Iyer. She helped me to build strong energetic & physical roots right out of the training gate.

Yin and Essential Oils:

$25.00 Space is limited submit payment today!

All-Levels     

Asana and Workshop

 Experience the physical and psychological benefits of Yin Yoga coupled with the use of Young Living Essential Oils.  The basic tenants of Yin are, come into a pose, and find the appropriate edge, resolve to remain still and hold the pose for time. While the physical benefits of Yin range from detoxifying tissue, preventing degeneration of the bones and increasing mobility of the joint, the mental benefits vary as well. This practice will allow you to learn to relax and let go of the chaos while improving you range of motion (flexibility) and spine health.  The Essential Oils add a lovely depth to the practice of relaxation.This practice is wonderful for athletes and desk sitters alike.

Rest & Rejuvenate

Total body nourishment is found when physical tension is released, the breath is deepened and the body returns to a sense of ease and balance. This sweet systematic look into unwinding the body will take a smart approach to grounding, expansive breathing, shoulder recovery, and uplifting the body. This is a gentle and restorative class open to all levels of practitioners.

David Vendetti
David is the co-owner of South Boston Yoga. His teaching is inspired by his time as a gymnast, dancer, pilates instructor and structural bodyworker. Classes integrate a clear foundation in anatomy with intelligent alignment, hands on adjustments and ever evolving flows to heal the body. Students are encouraged to cultivate a deep passion for self examination, light hearted exploration and drop everything in order to find out that when we hold on to nothing, what is left, is all we truly need. David won both 2011 and 2005 Best of Boston Yoga Teacher for Boston Magazine and was the 2012 (formerly 2009) Boston Prudential Lululemon Ambassador for Yoga.
