YOU GOT THIS! 

Are you ready for three incredible opportunities to detoxify, practice and discovery the power of plants?

YOU GOT THIS is all about getting unstuck, no matter what life has thrown at you this past year. Who would have thought that by this time we would still be in the midst of this pandemic? Could we have imagined the toll this far-from-“normal” lifestyle has taken on our health, well being, and mental state?

No. Never.

But we aren’t stuck. And if you need the reminder, here it is: DO NOT GIVE UP. YOU’VE GOT THIS!

We are all collectively going through these challenges, struggles and obstacles and the key to everything is, is to get UNSTUCK, out of the mud, out of the rut, through yoga, through food, through skill in ACTION!

•The physical practice of yoga (asana)

•Inspiring readings and quotes from powerhouses who have lead the way for us

•Good food (Karo will share a recipe which will help you release, let go and feel less and less stuck)

•The art of self love and collective compassion.

You will have the opportunity to explore:

•How to get rid of old nasty habits and create new, fresh ones both on and off the mat.

•Inspiring, sweaty, fun, elevating, motivating classes that will take you on a journey of self-discovery.

•The connection between food and yoga, how it is absolutely essential to think about what we put in our bodies when we also move our bodies in all the different shapes we do in our asana practice, also on a spiritual level we should make the connection, when we sign up to ahimsa living, we also need to expand that to all facets of our lives, especially our diet and lifestyle.

•How to deepen your own practice on a physical, mental and spiritual level through specific and detailed anatomical virtual cues, simple mindfulness techniques and inspirational dharma talks.

•The relationship between the physical practice and the spiritual essence of the practice, learning also about the karmic correlations of the different asanas and the chakras, energy wheels in our body and how to chakrasize all asanas.

•The yamas and niyamas, in the context of life style, diet, practice, asana.

•How to experience the practice with a fresh, new, open heart, embracing the newness of everyday and therefor your own practice too.

•How to incorporate physical, mental, and emotional techniques and tips for a daily home practice.

•How easy it is to adapt a wholesome, healthy plant based diet and lifestyle.

We recommend coming to each session with yoga blocks, a blanket, and a journal.

SESSION BREAKDOWN 

SESSION 1 

INNER COMPASS(ION) 

Finding your inner compass, the journey always starts within, at our own practice, you will learn that the mind is where stuckness happens (not the situation) and where repetition and bad habits set in. The mind isn’t in the head, it’s in the whole body, so though the practice of asana, we get closer to our true self, shedding all we don’t need and getting more and more UNSTUCK.  So you will learn how to switch on your Inner Compass that is constantly giving you guidance and information as to what is best for you and whether or not you are in alignment with who you really are. As we connect with our essence, we are revitalized, restored, and renewed.

This session focuses on hip openers (opening the junk drawer of emotions) The asana we focus on and work towards in this class is COMPASS (ion) Parivrtta Surya Yantrasana with readings from THE SPIRITUAL ACTIVIST a book by Claudia Horwitz and a spring is here detox juicing recipe, to expand on that compass within us all. 

SESSION 2 

COM- PASSION- WITH GREAT LOVE ALL IS POSSIBLE 

Last week we learned how we switch on the inner compass inside all of us, this week we will expand on that and widen our own compassion towards others, seeing that our individual self exists in a collective, that even though we practice alone on the mat (most of us are currently still practicing from home, so very focused on just the individuality of the practice) but also understanding how we as our individual self should and can be off service to our direct community, our collective and eventually the whole world, this is our set intention, opening up our hearts, shine a light inside of our heart in order to bring that light to others. 

This session focuses on back bending and the asana we focus on and work towards is Urdhva Dhanurasana plus variations  (upward bow) and drop backs when possible. With readings from Ruth Bader Ginsberg book and a beautiful heart opening and soul shaking recipe, to bring that love we have inside of us to all beings, we are not free, until everyone is free.

SESSION 3- 

THINK THE OPPOSITE

We end our course upside down….. flipping it all around, learning that when we get disturbed by disturbing thoughts we can think the opposite, we can flip it all around, shift it, through the lens of expanded consciousness getting UNSTUCK is simple, sometimes it actually really helps to turn a situation (or our bodies) upside down. As the sutra says: Vitarka Badhane Pratipaksa Bhavanam (Patanjali Yoga Sutra Chapter 3 verse 33) going backwards, focusing on the opposite. This is how we can get UNSTUCK, we bring together all we learned in session 1 and 2, how we work with our inner compass, bringing that compassion into the world and today we have a little extra fun with turning all that and ourselves upside down. 

This session focuses on inversions, the asana we focus on and work towards is Salamba Sirsasana with a few variations. We read from the legendary vegan world champion runner Fiona Oakes book, plus we end with a delicious detox recipe to make you feel revived and renewed.
