pose of the week: Corpse pose
In honor of our teacher of the month Liz Carr, this week's #TovamiPose is Corpse Pose!

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.

tristana: The three pillars of ashtanga yoga with stan woodman
jan 13 | 1:00 PM — 4:00 pm
Join Stan Woodman, Level 2 Authorized Ashtanga Yoga Instructor, for this 3- Hour Master Class. Be led by the traditional sweet sound of Sanskrit counting through the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga with emphasis on posture, breathing and dristi (gaze).
These 3 Pillars of Ashtanga Yoga help develop the witness inside of us by calming the mind through concentration. Through the witness, we begin to develop Viveka, the ability to distinguish between the real and unreal perceptions and beliefs we have about ourselves, others and the world around us. With Viveka comes Vairagya, the sense of clear physical, mental and spiritual discernment. We will spend time talking about each of the 3 Pillars and how to develop the witness within us.

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.
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
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!
