Upcoming Workshop

Sunday

November 1, 2020

4-5pm

COIVD-19 has affected all of us in one way or another. Through contracting the disease, knowing someone who did, shifting to remote working partially or completely, or teaching yoga and practicing yoga online, among other things, our lives have made a complete shift. And with social distancing, many of us are isolated at home, either with others or alone. We can often feel anxious when we are stressed about the unknown.  

Meditation can help ease this stress and can help you better manage anxiety. In this workshop, we will talk about how anxiety can show up in our bodies and explore different meditation techniques to help you and your family, friends, coworkers, or students how to manage the stress that can sometimes overwhelm us. You will leave the workshop with some tools and resources to be better equipped moving forward.

This workshop will be part lecture and part practice.  Please have a space where you can sit in meditation nearby.  We will be doing some writing prompts, so please have a journal or some paper and a writing instrument.

Register here.

About

Gina Callender, 500 RYT, E-RYT 200, YACEP, has been practicing yoga for over 20 years, and completed her 200 hour teacher training at YogaWorks in Westchester in 2013.  In 2014, Gina started her 500 hour OM yoga teacher training (YTT) with Cyndi Lee and completed that training in June 2015. This training included OM Meditation TT levels 1 & 2, Pranayama TT and Restorative YTT modules, as well as any additional 18 hours in anatomy with Jason Ray Brown.  In 2019, Gina completed Cyndi's OM Meditation TT level 3.

Gina completed 50 hours of Yin Yoga Teacher Training Levels 1 & 2 with Corina Benner. She is always looking to learn and is constantly taking workshops to better understand and deepen her practice and share what she learns with her students.

Gina also volunteers on two non-profit boards both related to yoga.  Yoga Teachers Association of the Hudson Valley brings quality continuing education programing to yoga teachers in our community.  CYP (Crossover Yoga Project) brings yoga, meditation and art therapy to young women in at-risk communities.   

To Gina, yoga is a transformative philosophy that goes beyond asanas, or poses, that the Western world associates with “yoga”. Yoga teaches us to slow down, be more conscious of our bodies and the world around us and can have huge physical and mental benefits when practices regularly. Some of these benefits include: lower blood pressure, more relaxed, greater flexibility and balance. Gina puts a heavy emphasis on the importance and benefits of Meditation, Savasana, Yin and Restorative Yoga as a way to relax the parasympathetic nervous system.

Gina is available for private one on one yoga and meditation classes, small group classes and corporate classes for yoga and meditation.
