Plogging & Yoga Event – April 21, 2pm-4:30pm – Free!
Plogging, the Swedish craze of collecting litter while jogging is making its way to Jamestown, NY for a special Earth Day event on April 22, 2018 from 2-4:30pm. This event is hosted by Kara Bemis Yoga and Sun Moon Yoga & Wellness Studio. Participants of this free event will join Kara at 2pm in downtown Jamestown, break away into joggers and walkers to begin plogging! After an hour of plogging, meet back at the Sun Moon yoga studio for a 5 Gyres ambassador talk on plastics by Kara. The event will finish with an all levels, 45 minute yoga class also given by Kara. Event is free and open to the public.
Arm Balance Workshop w/ Kara – April 28, 10am-12pm
Arm balances are both scary and invigorating, what they are not is impossible. In this two hour workshop Kara will guide students through a vinyasa flow class designed to build strength in areas needed to lift off and fly in arm balances. This class will include a lot of strength drills, including the paramount chaturunga, variations of this strong pose will be taught for all levels and abilities; drills that students can take home with them and incorporate into their home practices.
Kara teaches and believes that no expectations should come to the mat about whether or not students can ‘do’ the pose, although that is a common ego thought, she wants students to leave it at the door and instead reminds students to drill, practice, rest, and practice some more, until one day flight happens, or doesn’t: it’s the journey not the destination.
This arm balance workshop is open to all levels of students from beginners to teachers. The only requirements are the ability to repeatedly put weight on the wrists and the acceptance that falling is part of the practice.
Cost: $20 in advance, $25 at the door
