Today I announced a new teacher at SUKHA via email.
Lexy is a lover of humans, culture, astrology, holistic healing, traditional Chinese medicine, and plant based nutrition. Lexy found out at 20 years old she was called to share the healing powers of yoga. Since then she has accumulated 578 hours. She has learned under Jessie Haims, Dylan Werner, Matt Giordano, Benjamin Sears, Phillip and Ivy Askew, Abbie and Nevine Michaan from Katonah, Sam Vetrano of Bodhi Movement, Dana Falsetti, and Tina Bock. She is currently on working on becoming a Katonah teacher. A yoga influenced by Taoist beliefs. Putting the magic squares in the body, and viewing the body as a house. A house you can have party’s in, but being given the proper tools to clean the house up after you party. Getting good blood flow through the heart, oxygen to the lungs, detoxing the liver, and flushing the kidneys. She study’s birth chart reading in NYC with Shirley Soffer, and is reiki attuned.
Lexy’s will be teaching “Effort & Grace”-a meditative class that moves with the season every Monday at 9:30. This class will start with movement and heat-spring and summer, ending with restorative passive postures and guided meditation-autumn and winter.
Spring brings growth, summer allows the growth to ripen, autumn sheds layers, winter brings stillness to give nature a moment to be still so it can be re-born.
Lexy will be holding her first workshop at SUKHA Saturday, November 10 at 10:30 am. Details will be posted soon. Stay Tuned.
Please welcome Lexy to the SUKHA Community.
We are all creatures of habit. Keep in mind that by attending different classes with different teachers will introduce you to new poses that work different muscles and challenge your body in different ways. Your form will improve and you may discover a whole new style that you will love. And the best reason why you should take all of the teachers classes: You will add another positive, caring person to your life that will guide you through the most life changing practice in the world!
Now I would like to announce the two amazing workshops that will be added to the schedule.
Teachings of Katonah Yoga
For this workshop Lexy will introduce the teachings of katonah yoga ™. Katonah is a style of yoga created by Nevine Michaan using Taoist theory by putting the magic squares in your body. Nevine specializes in body reading and teaches this to her students. During a body reading you will learn which area of your body needs more attention so you can get the full effect out of your poses. We create patterns in life that manipulate our posture. This method of yoga will help you bring consciousness on where center is. One example; when you twist in low lunge do you feel like your lungs are compacted? If so, you’re not at true center. Your lungs should feel open and free. We can work on this. Working on your weaknesses and giving a break to strengths so they don’t become your weakness. For example wrist pain. Do you ever try flipping your wrist for a yoga flow? This can prevent pain and injury. This gives your strength a time breath, and builds on your weakness to support your strength. Lexy has trained 20 hours under Katonah and is plans on becoming a
Katonah instructor in the future. In this workshop she will go though a short flow to see where each individuals body has manipulated their center. Hand out materials, show a video, and body read in either mountain pose, reverse namaste, and seated bound angle pose. So you get a idea of where center is. This article is written by Abbie Galvin one of the teachers Nevine has trained. See article below.
This workshop will be held Saturday, November 10 at 10:30 am. The cost is $25
