About The Event
Meet Donald Shakes,
Donald, who has been teaching for over 15 years, started his yogic journey with chair yoga while recovering from an injury. He is passionate about making yoga accessible and beneficial for everybody, which is why Chair Yoga is a part of his 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training school curriculum.
Why Chair Yoga:
In Chair Yoga, the traditional yoga poses are adapted to the chair with modifications to suit all body types. This means no getting up and down from the floor, so you can always participate wherever you are in mobility, strength, or fitness.
You may be experiencing challenges with age, weight, balance, mobility, or flexibility. Those experiencing and recovering from injury or living with disability, stroke, cancer, osteoporosis, scoliosis, arthritis, Parkinson's, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, or diabetes will benefit profoundly. Chair yoga is wheelchair accessible. It can also be applied to work environments, where sitting for long periods is common.
Chair yoga provides a platform for strength, flexibility, mental clarity, and peace of mind. Breathing and meditation techniques are also taught to support well-being and promote deep relaxation.
Why Yoga Nidra:
Yoga Nidra is a powerful tool in the field of Yoga. It is a valuable practice to incorporate into our daily life, bringing incredible Calmness, Relaxation, Stillness and Clarity to our life, essential for healing and growth. Yoga Nidra means "Yogic Sleep," i.e., sleep with a hint of awareness. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation in the subject. This mindful relaxation holds miraculous power for healing, rejuvenation, and experiencing deeper integration and oneness. This level of relaxation Yoga Nidra presents to us differs from other forms of relaxation available. Relaxation induced through Yoga Nidra is more vibrant, alive, soothing, peaceful, and graceful. Yoga Nidra teaches how capably we can move into deep relaxation of the body-mind-heart on the one hand and stay more conscious and alert on the other hand.
This training meets the YACEP® Course criteria with 50 hours towards Continuing Education Requirements.
