Journey to Forearm Stand: Pincha Mayurasana with Erin Fogel
Resident Mayor and House of Jai owner, Erin Fogel, is thrilled to be offering a two hour intensive journey into her favorite yoga pose-forearm stand! This inversion has seen Erin through injury, reconstruction, and even her pregnancy! Also known as "feathered peacock pose", you'll find this way of going upside down is both liberating and thrilling. With limitless variations and modifications, this workshop is great for every level working toward a deeper adventure in going upside down.
This two hour workshop will offer a light preparatory asana to prepare the body to rest in a supported Savasana. Victoria will lead you through a guided meditation to a soundscape created by Angela using chakra singing bowls and Justin will offer Reiki healing.

REIKI LEVEL 1 WORKSHOP with JUSTIN RANDOLPH
Join Justin Randolph, Reiki Master Teacher & Practitioner and Yoga Teacher, at House of Jai for a Reiki Level 1 Attunement Workshop. Reiki is universal life force energy that expresses the quality of unconditional love. Having access to this energy, for yourself alone, has the power to provide balance and ease to your life. This hands on workshop will give you the tools necessary to begin a Reiki practice of your own for yourself and for other. In this workshop you will:
1. Understand the origins and history of Reiki
2. Understand the benefits of Reiki and how you can use it
3. Receive the Usui Level 1 Attunement giving you access to Reiki to use on yourself and others
4. Learn the basic hand positions and how to effectively use Reiki on yourself and others for balance, grounding, and healing
5. Understand how Reiki can work with the subtle body (chakras) and with organs of the body
6. If you have a career in wellness (Yoga teacher, massage therapist, acupuncturist, Doula, Nurse, etc) you will learn how to incorporate the Reiki touch into your work.
A Reiki Master Practitioner, Justin was initiated to the Usui System of Reiki Healing by renowned healer Asherah Allen. Justin is also a certified Yoga Teacher, actor and singer.
Justin seeks to give clients an "energetic massage" essentially relaxing and opening the subtle body's energetic channels and providing ease and alignment at a very profound level. Justin works with the Chakra system to provide alignment and give insight into areas of imbalance.
Passionate about providing comfort to those in need, Justin has provided Reiki to patients undergoing extensive cancer treatments, patients who are experiencing deep grief, patients with anxiety and depression, and patients who are simply seeking more balance in their lives. Reiki does not cure, but can provide an ease to our energetic vibration that activates the body and the mind's natural healing and coping mechanisms. Reiki will provide you with a lasting assurance of comfort and peace.

Breath Centered Practice in the Tradition of Desikachar and Krishnamacharya
Yoga practice in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar exhibits many distinctive principles and practices not found in other Hatha Yoga lineages. Details of breath sequencing, coordination with movement and spinal action are just some of the subjects we will explore in this highly interactive, experiential and informative session.
Leslie will introduce these breath-centered teachings from a historical, scholarly and anatomical perspective while leading participants into a progressively deeper understanding of the vital forces at work in the human breathing mechanism during yoga practice.
This workshop is divided into two three-hour sessions which are evenly divided between breath-centered asana practice, lecture and discussion
