Way of Being Challenge

A 6 week challenge to transform yourself and create a new way of being that best serves your highest self!

This challenge has been created by Sid Yoga Center instructors with a mission to create ripples throughout the world! The Way of Being Challenge is different from your typical yoga asana challenge. We are presenting an opportunity for you to transform yourself and all who partake.  What this challenge will look like is each day a Sid Yoga Center instructor will make a Facebook and Instagram post to present the daily challenge.  You will then accept the challenge and witness how it uplifts you that day.  You will carry each challenge with you into the next day and continue to add on small, little efforts that add up to something so much bigger than ourselves!  From meditating 5 minutes a day to increasing your daily water and whole foods intake to small gestures like sending a compliment to some else, a day of no complaining, creating time to turn your cell phone off each day, and so many more new traits to adopt in your daily life! Repetition is key, so following this challenge will help you witness what helps to serve your highest self!

How it works:
  1. Sign up!
  2. Attend group meeting #1 for the community opening
  3. Like Sid Yoga’s Facebook page and follow Sid Yoga on our Instagram @sidyoga to check out the daily challenge
  4. Post a picture or video of yourself doing the daily challenge with #PeopleofSidYoga
  5. Each challenge that is presented will carry with you into the next day
  6. Practice at Sid Yoga Center each day using your 6 week Way of Being Challenge unlimited pass (Towson or Fed Hill studio)
  7. Witness as you become more aware of your way of being both on and off the mat and find peace, love and freedom

Release your inner blocks

Healing Breathwork is a tool for healing, and clearing old patterns within ones body. Learn how to use your breath for emotional release, mental clarity, and physical freedom.

Sid’s Healing Breathwork is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, transpersonal discovery, and spiritual practice. The process itself uses very simple means: it combines natural baby’s breathing with evocative music in a comfortable setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to tap into deeper a consciousness.

This experience is appropriate for everyone and will leave you with clarity, inner peace and connection to yourself.
Sid McNairy will be your lead guide for this session, who has countless hours studying Holotropic and transgressional breathwork under the direct supervision and teachings of Grandmother Morningstar, who was a direct student of founder of holotropic breathwork Stanley Grof’s for years.

Space is limited. Sign up today!

Cost: $35 pre-register / $45 day of the workshop

We will help you find your personal deity

Using statues to illustrate, Manoj will relate the symbolism of Hindu and Buddhist deities to the archetypes within us. Through mythology, we will uncover hidden symbolisms and learn the four ways to work with them as part of a spiritual practice. Discover how knowing and working with your archetypes can profoundly shift you, especially during moments of life transitions, and how these ancient teachings have practical relevance to your life, bringing peace of mind and uncovering our underlying common spirit.

Jyothi will illuminate the practices and knowledge of Vedanta that lead to great peace of mind and prepares you for the goal of analyzing and realizing the Self, or ultimate freedom. When learnt and properly assimilated, this knowledge has the power to make you immortal.

About the teachers:

Manoj Chalam uses humor and personal anecdotes in his lectures and workshops to illuminate Hindu mythology. An Indian-born scientist with a PhD from Cornell University, Manoj helps

Create healing. 

with Sudevi Linda Kramer M.A., L.M.T.
Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga is traditionally performed on a large comfortable cotton futon floor mat which gives the receiver both comfort and full-body support. Working on the floor also allows the therapist to move freely around and above the client, making for effective use of the therapist’s bodyweight and mechanics. The therapist can also work with the receiver in a variety of positions, including prone, supine, side-lying, and seated.
In a Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga session you will wear loose-fitting or stretchy clothing that allows your body to move.No oils are needed. The techniques used work far beneath the surface of the body, effecting the deeper layers of the muscles and skeleton.
After the completion of this two-day Thai Yoga Bodywork course, participants will have the foundation for giving a classic 90-minute session. We will work in supine, prone, side-lying, and seated asanas. All participants will receive hands-on assistance, as well as a course manual to take home.

Learn: Beautiful sequences of exotic stretches and Thai Bodywork techniques, also known as assisted Yoga. Thai Bodywork is marma therapy and synthesizes acupressure, rhythmic compressions, ancient breathing arts and meditation to produce profound rest and rejuvenation. Mantras for the marmas and chakras will also be included.

Study: A 3000-year old traditional Southeast Asian Folk Art, which creates inspired tranquility and radiant whole health.

Sudevi was inducted into the World Massage Hall of Fame at Berea College in June 2010. Sudevi serves as the Yoga Director for the Vedic Conservatory.

“Sudevi is the real deal. Her presence initiates a magical spiritual journey intermingled with true rejuvenation and cellular healing. Her classes hold a special light that leave you feeling new again. Sudevi’s hand’s-on instruction is simple and complete — you get home and you can actually give a session without the DVD, and even though you are wowed by her mastery – you are even more wowed that you can do it too. She takes the confusion out of sequencing. I take her classes as often as I can— even after I’ve met my ce requirements — and some block, some something is always lifted and the world seems brighter.” ~Shawn M. Brinza, LMT, aka “The Massage Gypsy.”

“Sudevi’s presence is amazing and I would recommend taking any and every form of yogic study with her. Her love of yoga, meditation, and mantra are a big part of this work. I was able to apply the principles and produce the work for a change! Some teachers are razzle dazzle and you have to keep coming back to “Get it.”Sudevi is a born teacher, and the art is pranically transmitted and skillfully imparted. She has a calming presence and a relaxed easy manner. The peace I experienced is now part of my life and practices. ~Tana Trichel, Monroe, LA, Yoga Student.
