Yoga in the Park

June’s “Dark Side of the Moon” practice is an all-levels class to the music of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.” The flow is usually taught during a full moon, and is based on two different versions of moon salutations, making it a little more meditative than a sun salutation-based practice. Moon poses, such as Half Moon, also round out the practice. These elements are the stable core of the practice, and a common theme throughout is the luminous lightness of the moon.

This class will take place at the amphitheater located in the Park at 4th in the borough of Quakertown.

a weekend immersion of empowerment and skill building

Become a Facilitator
We want our message and our LOVE to spread. And we know that LOVE grows stronger when it grows in numbers. If you feel called to our mission and vision, we encourage you to become a leader in this revolution by participating in our 2-Part Facilitator Training. During Part 1 of the certification, the 15-hour weekend training, is led by one of our Certified Facilitator-Trainers (CF-Ts), who will provide guidance and instruction on how to facilitate our inspirational programs and walk you through the process of delivering these workshops in your own space. Our CF-Ts are dynamic and compassionate facilitators who will provide feedback to each trainee and leave you feeling inspired to create change in your community. This weekend training course is for any self-empowered woman who feels inspired to offer our curriculum to schools, camps, community centers, yoga studios, and other non-profit organizations. You will be trained by Embody Love Movement Founder, Dr. Melody Moore, during Part 2 of the certification. The training takes places in four 1-hour segments of an online training.
 
What is a Facilitator?
Facilitators are women who lovingly share Embody Love Movement’s revolutionary programs in studios, private practices, schools, camps, community centers and other non-profit organizations. The workshops that they facilitate focus on emotional expression, exposing media myths, changing the conversation from criticism to kindness, and recognizing self-worth and purpose.
 
How Facilitators Make a Difference:
This training provides participants with the curriculum and skills necessary to facilitate our transformative workshops and to inspire girls and women who participate in our programs to:
♥ Value who they are internally over their external appearance
♥ Be empowered to change the conversation from criticism to kindness
♥ Stop comparing themselves to a false idea of beauty and to others
♥ Find inspiration to embrace their purpose in the world
 
About Part I of The Training & Certification
When you participate in a Facilitator Training you are getting more than just exposure to our curriculum. Our CF-Ts are trained to help you build up your own abilities around facilitation and all the intricacies of this critical work. Because our workshops call upon participants to deepen their own understanding of self-image, self-love and self-acceptance, it is important that we do the same work with our facilitators. Our 15-hour training allows you to dive into the experience of an Embody Love Workshop and then walks you step-by-step through the key elements of facilitating the very work that you have just engaged in. You can expect the following during any of our Facilitator Trainings:
♥ Participation in an Embody Love Workshop led by a CF-T
♥ The being and doing of facilitation: holding safe space
♥ Projection, transference, and shadow work in groups
♥ Using yoga as a tool to find and keep body acceptance
♥ Finding your voice and sharing your truth: story telling that heals
♥ The detriments of body shaming and comparison
♥ Teaching media literacy and demystifying standard of beauty
♥ Practice, practice, practice of facilitation through role play
♥ How to spread the LOVE and bring the revolution to your community
 
Bringing ELM to Your Community:
Once you have participated in Facilitator Training, you will be able to start hosting workshops in your community. You will have the knowledge and skill set to offer various Embody Love Movement® Workshops Curriculum to various groups of individuals. We want to empower you to draw in what feels right to you and, at the same time, give back to the organization so that we can continue to offer and deliver to the greater whole. Facilitators are also more than welcome to deliver workshops at no cost and volunteer their time. We hold no expectations regarding which path you choose for any given workshop. Our workshops are interactive and designed for specific age groups. Each workshop takes participants through an embodied journey that changes the way they see and treat themselves and each other. 
 
Session I - Friday, June 1, 6:00pm-9:00pm

BIG Spring Cleanse

Certain practices, like cleansing, bring up fear. Yep, my F word! This is important to talk about because your mind can become unhappy with adjustments in your eating and drinking—the everyday rhythm being "messed with"—as the mind ain’t too keen on this type of behavior, so fear is often a loud voice that lands with both feet on the deck of your mind and tries to regain control over the ship.
Well, not on this cleanse. we will take good care of you! Please join June Hunt and Kathryn Templeton for a BIG Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse guaranteed to revitalize both your body and mind.

Seasonal cleansing offers us a way to clean out old habits and toxins and bring our bodies and minds back into balance. It leaves us feeling lighter, brighter, and more joyful.

a weekend w/Luke Ketterhagen ... Sweat to Bliss!
Sep
23
to Sep 24

a weekend w/Luke Ketterhagen ... Sweat to Bliss!

Join Luke Ketterhagen, senior teacher in the Himalayan Tradition, and awaken lasting change with this workshop that will be a balanced class of energetic asana, awakening pranayama, deep relaxation, and guided meditation to draw the mind inward and experience the bliss of the heart.
Each session will include a full, balanced practice from a different perspective all leading to the goal of finding, achieving and resting at inner peacefulness and calm.

Saturday, Session I - Foundation: Diaphragmatic Breathing
Without a firm foundation and understanding of diaphragmatic breathing we will could continue to move from more a rudimentary understanding of the link between the nervous system and the breath.
· The breath has the more direct reflection on the breathing mechanism than any other system.
· The breath can be controlled voluntarily and or will be controlled involuntarily
· A relaxed deep breath allows for relaxation.
· A relaxed muscle is the only muscle that can stretch - not strain or be pulled - and as a consequence move through its natural and full range of movement
· Range of movement is key to strength that is sustainable

Saturday, Session II - Building a Container and Adding Fire: Agni Sara
A 'container' is essential in yoga because as you create energy you also want to be able to harness it and eventually direct it. Without this 'container' we may unconsciously be draining the collection vessel in the process. If there is a hole in the 'container' does it matter how much energy, strength and power you generate?
However, with a firm, solid container we can add as much energy as we can manage and then direct it and utilize it in any way we want.
· Awareness of our core strength starts at the floor of the pelvis muscles
· Move your awareness to the abdomen and the fire and power there.
· Keep a relaxed yet focused energy around this practice to build not deplete
· See the link between the different parts of the breath and the sustainability of the practice when extra effort is relaxed.

Sunday, Session I - Moving the Energy: Breath
We can move in many ways. Moving in coordination with the breath is the way to stay present and build power, manipulate the muscles and bones all the while staying within a safe level of practice so that we first and foremost - Do no harm.
· Inhale to open; exhale to contract
· Seamlessly transitioning in and out of postures to create a gentle rhythm
· The rhythm keeps the nervous system calm, the breath smooth and the muscles looking for more - safely

Registered Yoga Instructors: Yoga Alliance CEU's are given for this workshop
Sessions may be taken individually.  

The weekend package (all 3 sessions) includes an additional option of taking Luke's public classes (9:30 am & 10:30 am Saturday & Sunday respectively). A catered lunch by Nourish Catering is another option that can be added to your weekend package.
