Restorative Yoga Introduction with Darcy Bowman

dec 16 | 1:00 pm — 4:00 pm

In this three-hour workshop, we’ll learn how to begin to release into our breath and how to set up various restorative poses to open a doorway to a deep state of relaxation.

Restorative yoga is a powerful practice designed to balance the nervous system, as well as support the brain’s neural networks of peacefulness and contentment. Your body is supported by props, blankets, bolsters, or blocks in order to release unnecessary muscular holding, deepen the breath, and quiet the mind.

Darcy will guide you to initiate your body’s soothing response and discover a new level of restoration.

There will be a combination of lecture and practice of releasing. We will journey through the five koshas, or “sheaths," beginning with the densest physical body
and traveling deep into our quiet, spiritual self.

The deeper the body relaxes, the more we can surrender to our breath. The calmer the breath, the easier it is to still our minds.

Cost: $60

Hands On & Hands Off Assists with Caroline Martinez-Zuber

JAN 5 | 1:00 PM — 3:00 pm

In this workshop you’ll learn to assist the practicing Yogi.

When we practice Yoga we create shapes with our bodies that are subject to a certain structural setup. That setup is not always clear to the practicing Yogi, and that’s where we assist as the teacher.

There are various ways to assist students in their practice. We’ll explore the hands on, hands off method.

Hands on is a form of assist that requires manual help. We’ll explore manual assists that are basic methods for various poses, and more specific assists that are more targeted.

The hands off is a form of assist that requires precise verbal cueing. For the hands off part, you’ll learn the language of exactness: simple clear cueing to help the student find her/his own way into the pose.

Cost: $40 by 12/22 | $45 after

KIDS YOGA

Budding Buddhas Yoga & Mindfulness - For all ages

The benefits of yoga for kids are many, including increased focus and concentration, heightened body awareness and self-control, increased flexibility and strength. Yoga for kids helps ease stress and build confidence. It encourages children of all ages to create healthy habits for life.

OUR COMMUNITY

If I could learn one thing each day, it would be how to love myself and others more fully. With yoga, we will all meet there.

Tovami means community - the name can't be found in a dictionary, nor does it have a country of origin, but has been created. A name to mean community, one letter, one idea, one person at a time. We see everyone as unique and special like Yoga. The focus for us is on building this beautiful yoga community, this "Tovami" honoring yoga as an ancient mindfulness art in our welcoming studio.

This month's Featured Yoga Teacher

LIZ CARR

Like our Yoga Practioners, our Teacher's are fun & have a unique view that shines brightly throughout each of their classes. 

Meet our featured teacher for this month -Liz Carr! We love Liz because she is authentic, charismatic, and always encouraging. Her passion for yoga (and life) shines as big as her heart! She is dedicated to creating a space that is accessible and inclusive to all. She lives by her motto; “Show up. Participate. Do your best. Let go of the results.” Read more about her journey and approach below:

1. Tell us a bit about how you found yoga?
I took my first yoga class back in the spring of 2002. I’ve been a student for the last 16 years. I was curious to try yoga for years but felt extremely self conscious at my bodies physical limitations. I was a personal trainer at the time and my clients wife told me about a yoga studio that she liked in Glenville, CT. I walked into this yoga studio with sneakers, socks and a wad of gum in my mouth. The thought of being barefoot freaked me out! I loved the idea of yoga but many of the poses were incredibly challenging for my fit, tight healthy frame and savasana was unattainable because my mind was just racing and ruminating. I was pregnant at the time and had a miscarriage soon after, so I stopped going to class after (that was dumb!). I returned to my mat in 2005, for good. Enrolled in YogaWorks 6 month, 200HR TT in 2010 and graduated in May 2011. I’ve been teaching for the last 7 years and still love what I do.

2. What can someone expect when coming to your class?
My hope is that any individual who comes to my class feels welcomed, feels safe and feels seen; no matter what level, what size or what age. All are welcome!

practice with Liz:

Wednesdays, 9:30 AM - 10:45 AM Vinyasa Flow (Level 1)
Thursdays, 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM Vinyasa Flow (Level 1/2)
