Kundalini Yoga with Ursula Scherrer
Dec 11 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am

Kundalini Yoga is also called the Yoga of Awareness. It combines the physical practice of Asanas with Pranayama (breathing) and Meditation/Chanting – it targets the whole body system (nervous system, glands, mental faculties, chakras) to develop awareness and consciousness, strength and flexibility.

Everybody is welcome, no previous knowledge of Yoga is necessary. Please bring a Yoga mat and possibly a blanket and a shawl.

Shortly after she moved to New York, from her native Switzerland in 1988, Ursula Scherrer started exploring different styles of Yoga for her own spiritual and physical well being before she did her first teacher training in 2002 and has been teaching ever since. In addition to her skills and expertise as a Yoga teacher (Hatha and Kundalini Yoga) she is also a Pranayama Healer and certified Qi Gong instructor.

For more information please contact Ursula Scherrer: ursula.scherrer@gmail.com

This event has a Google Hangouts video call.

Sun Salutations and Intentions: a Morning Flow
Dec 13 @ 6:45 am – 7:30 am

Join Sharyn Hahn to start your day with a morning yoga practice of Sun Salutations and a Vinyasa flow! You will experience luxurious stretching warm-ups, empowering standing poses, and energizing breath work as we align the movements with the inhales and exhales. You will feel more awake, strong, balanced, and positive as a result of this time spent on the mat. Sun Salutations and warrior poses stimulate the seratonin in your brain (the “happy hormone) and improve self-esteem! You will be ready for anything that meets you as your day unfolds.

We will listen to music and set an intention for the week at the start of each class.

$5 donation requested. Bring a yoga mat if you have one. There are some props at the store for up to 5 people. You may bring your own coffee or tea.

Let’s Talk About Microaggressions
Jan 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

“So where are you really from?” “Can I touch your hair?” These are common examples of microaggressions (e.g. subtle forms of discrimination). This talk, given by the original research team that developed the microaggression taxonomy, will highlight research from their new book entitled, “Microaggression Theory: Influence and Implications.” The authors will describe how the invisible nature of this phenomenon prevents perpetrators from confronting their own complicity in creating psychological dilemmas for marginalized groups. They will also discuss how prejudice, privilege, safe spaces, and cultural appropriation have become themes in our contentious social and political discourse.
