Awakening the Inner Body: Introduction to The Bandhas

The word ‘bandha’ translates as ‘to bind’, or ‘the binding of consciousness to a particular object’. The bandhas are physical engagements of specific areas of the body that help direct energy up the spine, and they affect the physical, mental, and subtle bodies.

On the physical level, utilizing the bandhas helps create the sensation of ‘floating’ and stability from inside out in postures that defy gravity. On an energetic level, the bandhas are a powerful focal point to rest the mind and are applied in many forms of pranayama.

Join Kristen Coyle for a potent exploration of the bandhas through pranayama, asanas, and kriyas (clarifying actions), with specific instruction on how and when to utilize the bandhas.

Open Levels. Please come with an empty stomach.

The MindSet Journey – The Power of Compassion

Are you tired of feeling restricted and limited by your own thoughts and beliefs? Do you long to connect with others and the world in a more meaningful way? If so, the Mindset Journey with Priya is for you.

The Mindset Journey enables you to discover your own true nature and understand the parts that are holding you back. This new understanding frees you to live with greater ease and joy, and gives you the power to transform your life, moment to moment.

This transformative experience guides you through uncovering your authentic self and overcoming obstacles that stand in the way of your happiness and success. With a deeper understanding of yourself and your limitations, you will live life with greater ease, joy, and empowerment.

The Mindset Journey addresses the universal challenge of seeking peace and security in a world that can often feel chaotic and unpredictable.

It is so important to be compassionate to yourself and to guide yourself from a place of gentleness and wisdom, and not from a place of criticism and judgment. You don’t want to repeat the same critical statements that someone may have told you when you were young. It’s time to develop a new mindset, one that includes self-compassion and kindness.

Do you have a strong inner critic and judge that makes it hard to grow and enjoy life? Are you compassionate to others but struggle to have compassion for yourself? You are not alone.

As you grow up, you may start to build walls to protect yourself, your mind takes over to ensure you are safe and protected. But maybe there is still a little child within you. It’s easier to be compassionate to yourself if you connect to your younger self.

Join us for this upcoming session to meet your different parts and learn everyday tools of how to make inner space for compassion.

You’ll enter 2024 with a better relationship with yourself and a renewed sense of confidence.

During this session, you will learn:

  • How to meet the different parts of yourself
  • How to make space for compassion
  • How to sustain compassion for yourselves throughout day-to-day life

You’ll also engage in somatic exercises to connect with yourself, empowering you to understand your genuine self and build self compassion. You will reclaim your heart, center and confidence while connecting with others in the group. It’s important not to do this work alone.

This work also welcomes individuals who are new to group work or may feel hesitant about participating. This approach encourages you to delve deep within yourself, fostering a level of self-discovery and introspection with the support you need.

We encourage you to share this experience with friends and family!

This session is open to everyone, regardless of your level of experience or background. So, if you’re looking to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your thoughts, or just seeking a moment of peace and relaxation, this is the perfect opportunity for you.

“Practicing the Mindset with Priya has completely flipped my world in the best way possible. I had an image of my future that seemed great but every day was becoming more rigid and lacking in color. The time I spent doing personal development with Priya changed my life. Thanks to this work, I made a very hard decision that allowed me to paint my life with the color it deserves. Priya brought light back into my life.”

Priya will be hosting a series of workshops at The Pad in the coming months. We encourage you to keep an eye out for more, and share with family and friends! In the meantime, please learn more about the other opportunities Priya offers.

Neuroscience and The Joy of Yoga

with Nicole Cronin, co-owner & teacher at The Pad Studios and Rebecca Michael, MD
 

Have you ever skipped your yoga practice because you had too much to do? But then you lack the motivation or focus to complete what you need to do? So then you sit in a stress pool of just not doing anything? Or perhaps you forgot what you needed to do in the first place? If so, you aren’t alone.

We are living in a digital world of distraction and a post pandemic era where working from home (and living at work) has left many of us cognitively and emotionally depleted.

In this workshop, neuroscientist Rebecca Michael will provide a deeper understanding of why a regular yoga practice on the mat can significantly improve health and well being off the mat. Cultivating community and experiencing more joy are possible (and often welcome) side effects.

In this 1.5 hour interactive time together we will:

  • Discuss the latest cutting edge neuroscience research on
  • structural changes that can occur in the yogi brain
  • positive impacts in memory, attention and mood in regular yoga practitioners
  • current evidence on the benefits of yoga in certain neurological diseases

Practice real time with yoga & meditation offered by Nicole Cronin. Reflect and share on how we can each apply this information in our lives and communities.

About :: Rebecca Michael, MD

Rebecca found love (of yoga) in a hopeless place. It was amidst the dark dreary winters of Cleveland, OH where she was completing her neurology residency at Cleveland Clinic. The yoga studio was warm (physically and metaphysically) and afterwards she felt wonderful. So she began practicing yoga regularly. In the Fall of 2017 she moved to San Francisco and started practicing yoga at The Pad while starting her neurology practice at UCSF.

Rebecca currently works as an associate professor and attending neurologist at the UCSF Department of Neurology. She sub specializes in headache and facial pain. She sees patients in clinic, supervises residents and often provides educational lectures to residents, colleagues and the community.

In the Fall of 2023 she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at The Pad.

This workshop is separate from her professional affiliations and work at UCSF. But simply because of a sincere desire and curiosity in understanding and promoting a healthy mind for all.

What is a sound bath?

A sound bath is a meditative experience in which participants are “bathed” in the vibrations and sounds of various instruments, including crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, tuning forks, gongs, the human voice, drums, shakers, as well as many others. Benefits of sound healing can include relaxation and calm, a quieter mind, increased creativity, relief from pain and tension, release of stuck patterns, improved sleep, better mood, and a greater connection to body and self.

What is reiki?

Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive practice that promotes relaxation and healing. Through the use of gentle touch or hands hovering above the body, reiki energy activates the body’s natural healing processes and clears physical and emotional blockages. It can be an effective way to reduce stress, improve sleep, and relieve pain.

About Jenn Hirsch & Soulful Wealth

As a professional Futurist for 20 years, I have always championed uncommon solutions and creative breakthroughs in all aspects of modern life. Money has been a lifelong exploration – what is it, how is it created, what purpose does secrecy, mysticism and taboo hold over it?

Both having a Wharton MBA and working with and for some of the leading financial institutions, entrepreneurs and innovators, it remains as elusive as ever.

I see the world as a series of stories that connect to others and create all the changes we see today and in the future.
