Workshops

Asanas (poses) are the most common way to practice yoga, but there is so much more goodness to be found in this beautiful and transformative tradition. Our yoga workshops are intended to explore the other sides of yoga – self study, meditation, detachment, and discipline to name a few – and help you integrate them into your everyday life. From awakening your creativity to offering tools to deal with stress and anxiety, our yoga workshops will bring your practice to a whole new level.

Workshop Cancellation Policy:

Workshops can be fully refunded up to 72 hours before the event. If you need to cancel with less than 72 hours of notice, the workshop cost will be refunded as Account Credit (can be spent on anything at Yogaleena.) No Show = No Refund:)

Mother’s Day Healing Workshop

Date: Friday May 10

Time: 7:00-9:00pm

Instructor:  Farrah Farley

Investment: $25

For those of us who have lost our mothers or have complicated relationships with them, Mother’s Day can bring up feelings of pain and angst, especially as everyone around us celebrates. If you can relate, we hope you’ll join us at Yogaleena on Friday, May 10, for a yoga, meditation, and journaling workshop to address the mother wound. This 2-hour session will focus on  gentle, fluid poses and pranayama to help relieve anxiety, calm the central nervous system, and release toxic energy caused by trauma. Guided by readings from Thich Nhat Hanh’s “Walking With Your Parents”, we will spend time sharing our own stories of loss/separation, journaling, and learning healthy home rituals to help us maintain a sense of connection, even in grief.

We will have an altar set up to symbolize our unbroken connection with our ancestors, and we ask that you bring an item significant to your relationship with your mother for it. Allow the power of community to heal you this Mother’s Day and join us.

Learning the Katonah Magic Square

Dates: Saturday, June 15

Time: 3:00-5:00 pm

Instructor:  Brittany Kraft

Investment: $45 (or get all 3 of Brittany’s June workshops for only $99)

The Katonah practice is designed to make us well-adjusted and well rounded. The “magic square” is based on an ancient Chinese grid of numbers which can be used as a tool in your yoga and meditation practice to find your center, explore your circumference, and navigate your body and your life more efficiently.

In this workshop we will learn the basics of the magic square and explore its use in the body and the practice as a means to become more well oriented in poses, to explore unknown territory, and to better integrate the body and mind.

Developing a Pranayama Practice

Dates: Saturday, June 22

Time: 3:00-5:00 pm

Instructor:  Brittany Kraft

Investment: $45 (or get all 3 of Brittany’s June workshops for only $99)

When we practice asana (the physical postures) we learn to make our body into a cup that can hold energy and make us substantial. When we practice Pranayama, we fill the cup. When we practice meditation, we drink from the cup.

Prana is the energy and life force that sustains the body and makes us feel healthy, happy and whole. Pranayama is a series of breathing exercises intended to strengthen the lungs, nourish the organs, and balance the nervous system. Students will leave this workshop energized and equipped with practical breathing practices to incorporate into their daily routine.

The Art of Body Reading

Dates: Saturday, June 29

Time: 3:00-5:00 pm

Instructor:  Brittany Kraft

Investment: $45 (or get all 3 of Brittany’s June workshops for only $99)

The art of reading bodies is as practical as it is mystical. The habitual patterns in which we move and rest our physical structure can reveal a lot about our mental, emotional, and spiritual states. This workshop will teach you to really SEE a body and use maps to read, orient, and effectively navigate the physical practice.
We will learn both techniques to use in our own bodies and in assisting others.This workshop is highly useful for yoga teachers and yoga students alike.
