Ask the PT: Yoga for Stress Management – 3 Techniques

Posted by on Oct 29, 2017 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Exercise is often the go-to remedy for managing stress. The problem is, when life gets really crazy — as in, there-is-no-time-for-anything-else crazy — physical activity is the first thing that goes from many of our routines. In the west, many of us first experience the calming effects of a physical asana-based yoga class. However, a traditional yoga practice is so much more than the physical yoga postures.

Ask the PT: How Does Mindfulness Meditation Work?

Posted by on Sep 27, 2017 in Evolution Blog |

The placement of these limbs alone is enough to suggest their importance, for it is through these last two limbs that total absorption (samadhi) unfolds. And if that’s not reason enough to consider learning more about a mindfulness meditation practice, think about 1 habit or tendency (stick with the first thing that comes to mind) that you’d like…

Jane Michaud

To be a beginner over and over again, has been the greatest revelation since Jane began her yogic journey in 1997, at the ripe old age of 43.  Now 20 years later, she can honestly say that what she once feared in the life, has come to be her friend – repetition.  Blending together the beginner mind and repetition has allowed Jane to show up in the seat of the teacher with great humility.

Jane’s kundalini awakening in 2005 steered her to Kripalu for her first training.  Jane’s first…

Yin Yoga and Pranayama: Remember Your Centered, Spacious Self

December 3, 2017

These floor poses are held with mindful breath and self-kindness. This is a very therapeutic practice, allowing for deep healing in the denser tissues. Martha will carefully guide you in a journey of yin poses and teach complimentary pranayama (breath work) techniques. This class is open to all…
