Hansa Flow with Liana Yew
Wednesday, october 16th 5:00pm-6:15pm
Travelling all the way from Auckland, New Zealand, Liana Yew will teaching a movement practice, Hansa Flow, created in by Vincent Boletta that explores functionality, integration and balance through its developed understanding of human movement and natural biomechanics. It is designed to bring a sense of embodiment and ease.
Liana will guide through a Set series of movement sequences, allowing time for you, the practitioner, to find your own rhythm, coordination, and with time, a 'Flow' state. Its approach allows for a range of diverse levels from beginner to advance as it has an adaptive quality which is playful and fun.
For several years Liana worked using the Alexandra technique with Debra McCulloch which involved a lot of hands-on work with the body. She also spent time in New York studying Klein Technique - bone dance body technique which is about efficiency and integration. Both of these have influenced her approach to yoga and her knowledge of the body.
In addition, Liana has also been freelancing for 18 years as a contemporary dancer and believes that yoga has played an integral part in her dance training.
Liana likes her teaching to be playful and to remind her students that yoga can be fun. That we can laugh and just be our true selves....Her classes often include the use of the studio walls; she likes to use the wall as a reference to really help give us a sense of space.
Liana is continuing her training with Vincent Bolletta as well as learning from her fellow peers and Tima; her two-year old son who has a shining personality ... just like his mum. :)

Prosperity means different things to different people, but in NYC I believe that most of us would say that Prosperity means to have money to afford a comfortable life without worries. Kundalini Yoga has the tools to help you have a Prosperous, a beautiful life, if you really want to. It is part of a Yogi’s path to have Prosperity, but there is a step that comes before you achieve prosperous life, and that is where you need to focus your energy.

Dance Movement Meets Positive Psychology with Ashley Elizabeth
Release. Restore. Rise
Saturday, November 16th, 2pm-5pm
Are you ready to move with your mess in an empowering way and release the negative energy that is holding you back from stepping into your power?
It’s time to get unstuck and be unstoppable.
This dynamic 5-hour workshop for women brings alive the interconnection of the mind and body through therapeutic movement and positive psychology.
Your thoughts, emotions and body are energy. Repetitive limiting thoughts, beliefs and emotions create energy patterns. They get stuck in your body and become obstacles in your body’s ability to heal itself.
During this workshop, Ashley will set the stage for a brave cathartic release. We will breathe with intent, break through our fears, and begin to feel the power take shape in our physical, mental, and emotional selves.
You will learn:
The psychology of the 7-Chakra system and their connection to your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being
How to cleanse and detox your emotional body for peak energy
How to transform fear into a powerful plan of action
How to change your limiting beliefs and replace them with empowering ones
How to find your “why”
How to master your emotions & create unstoppable confidence
This will be followed by a 2-hour dance movement medicine journey that will be a fusion of asanas, kriyas, primal movement, ecstatic dance, deep core, and breath work.
She will integrate elements of her psychology background into the practice, weaving BS-free wisdom and empowering insights into each pose, providing a space for an emotional cathartic release and self expression through movement.
Music will range from Hip Hop, Salsa, Jazz Funk, Electronic Dance, Pop, Indie, African Dance, Brazilian, and more.
This is your chance to sweat with intention, connect with yourself and others through movement, and let go of anything that is holding you back.
No dance or yoga experience is required to receive the benefits of this experience. Just a desire to move as YOU!
You will leave this workshop feeling ecstatic, energized, and empowered to create the You 2.0 you’ve always desired to be.
