Create your own holistic products to help you through the harsh winter months.

Taught By: Courtney Legenhausen

 

Join us for this fun event while we explore many wonderful recipes to make self-care products with essential oils. Learn how to create luxurious skincare products that will help you slough off that dry winter skin, leaving you looking radiant. We will discuss the importance of knowing the ingredients that go into your daily products and how they affect our general health. It’s important to have awareness about what you’re using on your body and to strive to have a more holistic approach to your daily regimen.

 

Courtney Legenhausen has used essential oils for nearly two decades. She is an avid yogi and is passionate about living a holistic lifestyle while keeping up with her children and growing career. After being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder in 2006, she decided to make a major lifestyle change and started to heavily research the effects that foods and skin products have on our general health. During this time, she discovered the power that essential oils have to greatly improve our health, bringing our minds and bodies into alignment when properly used and applied. She has spent the last two years avidly sharing her years of experience, striving to help educate others on how they too can benefit from using essential oils and continue in their own health recovery.

Join SYC as we do a 21-day cleanse as a community that will help you to shed any heaviness and have you feeling light and reenergized for the holiday season. The cleanse is based on a partial food fast our fellow SYC instructor, Crystal Milana, has done for several years called the Daniel Fast. The fast consists of eating all fresh non-processed foods to give your body a kick start into eating cleaner and more fresh to get out of the habit of eating the comfort foods we all enjoy.

There are two different options in the fast depending on how far you want to take it. We will support and encourage each other through social media. We encourage you to keep a food journal to help you stay on track and share recipes with the community.

As you sign up for the fast, SYC will send you the two different options. This fast is applicable to anyone looking to lighten up and shine from the inside out! It is not a cleanse where you can only eat raw foods, drink certain juices etc. You will find yourself being able to eat a variety of foods from fruits to vegetables, legumes, grains, almond milk and even some meats (depending on what option it is you choose).

Cleanse starts on February 28th
Cleanse: February 28th – March 19th
 
This is where we can meet together and have discussion on why we are doing the cleanse, tools to help you through the cleanse and get different recipes and meal ideas. We will open with a meet and greet, then a short meditation to clear our minds. Please bring your journal with you, as well as an open heart and mind for this journey together.
Cost: $108 $54 / $27 if done as an add-on program to the Nahi Warrior 90-Day Challenge!*

We all have an operating system and in many cases it has limited our connection to our infinite power. We have come into this mode of operation from the fear of losing love in some way. By learning how to shift our operating system we are able to see our world from a new perspective. As we land in this new perspective we are then able to live an amazing life from a deeper state of love.

Life Training II is the next step in this training for all people.  You have completed Life Training I, and this next step is to open a new space for yourself. A yoga practice is not required! Yoga is not involved in this Life Training, so please get your practice in before or after. This is a study group that will help you dive deep into yourself to open new dimensions that hold you back from landing in the most powerful you. The Life Training series is lead by Sid McNairy. Sid is the owner, founder and operator of Sid Yoga Center in Towson, Maryland and the author of Walking with Love and Empowerment and Beyond. Sid has helped thousands and thousands before you see this perspective, and he can help you, too. Live the life you deserve to live!

Discover your inner warrior: awaken to peace and clarity

Taught by: Ken Wong
Through Ken’s 15 years of martial arts experience, he has creatively merged martial arts with yoga. It is time to teach and lift the world to a higher understanding of holding our space. Since ancient times, warriors of all cultures seek peace. In order to have peace, one must understand oneself and be fully confident in what one can accomplish. There are times where we need to stand our ground and protect our love, our land, our planet.

The intention of this workshop is to learn martial arts technique through the eyes of a yogi. Both practices seek unity through one’s mind, body, spirit, and breath. We will connect our breath to every move and keep it simple within. Learn how to position your hands and feet to deliver proper, simple, fast, and effective offensive and defensive techniques. We will experiment our rhythm, timing, and agility formlessly.

In the real world, it is not a matter what color belt you wear. Fighting is an art of simplicity.

 Learn to lead, teach and inspire others.

An empowering process for those wanting to teach yoga in your community and world. Are you a current yoga teacher looking to master your skills, or a yoga student seeking to delve deeper in your practice? Our weeklong trainings are a great opportunity to capture these goals. This program composes the first part of 200hour teacher training.

The goal of this week is “Establishing power for yourself and others.” You will be introduced to the foundations of assisting/adjusting, and be exposed to understanding the anatomy of yoga postures and movement of the body. You will learn the foundations of power yoga through Baron Baptiste’s “Journey into Power” sequence. Discussions on the Yoga Sutras and philosophy of the Sid Yoga “Empowerment and Beyond” sequence will teach students about the depth and versatility of practicing yoga. You will also learn how to translate these timeless teachings into your current classroom experience. You will be introduced to leading a class by receiving voice coaching, and learning sequencing basics. A unique aspect of this training is the amount of time spent in practicing your teaching skills through live teaching sessions to your peers. Receive feedback throughout the program and grow.
This weeklong session is an inward journey that brings the focus to the internal by recognizing where we hold back, and where we can break through.

Weather & Clothing
Depending on the time of year the weather can vary in Maryland from hot and sunny summers to cold and snowy winters. Please review the weather forecast before attending your training sessions to know what to pack and wear. All training hours will be indoors. During program, plan to wear sportswear acceptable for practicing yoga (wicking material, no cotton) and bring layers to cover up during seated discussion or partner work. There are often 1-2 yoga asana practices throughout the day, so we recommend bringing at least two changes of yoga clothes.
