AHIMSA is the state of the heart that has no enemies. While, as yogis, we often talk about nonviolence (ahimsa) in philosophy classes, we can do more than talk. There are practices that we can incorporate into our daily lives to increase the likelihood that we will see each other as brothers and sisters, not as enemies. In this one day workshop we will include practical and powerful exercises drawn from both Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and yoga to delve deeper into our ability to feel compassion toward all beings - especially ones with whom we have conflict or disagreements. This class is for you if you ever have negative judgments about anyone - family members, friends or co-workers, for example. No NVC or yoga experience necessary to join this class.
Marcia will also be teaching a Mixed Level Asana Class on Sunday April 14, 9-11am Cost: $30 $25 if paid by April 1
Marcia has been teaching asana for over 35 years and continues to be curious about and astounded by the practice through the many phases of her life. She offers clear alignment instructions within a philosophical context that grounds the poses within the challenges of life itself. This class will be appropriate for all levels of practice (no new beginners please) and will include a well rounded practice, some fun poses and plenty of time to relax and meditate.
Register and pay for both classes by April 1 and price is $90 Pre-registration is required.
Marcia Miller, E-RYT500, and Reiki Master Teacher, has been teaching yoga for over 35 years. Ever since Marcia was a "baby" yogi, telling the truth has been one of her main practices and values. As she learned and practiced NVC, she realized that she finally had the tools to be honest in ways that she and the people she was talking to enjoyed. She also discovered that the interactions she was having with her yoga students and reiki clients were much richer and more meaningful than before. She has studied and practiced NVC since she first heard about it from Judith Hanson Lasater many years ago. She has studied extensively with Marshall Rosenberg, Robert Gonzalez, Susan Skye and Jeff Brown as well as Judith and Ike Lasater. She is delighted to be teaching NVC to the yoga community and yoga to the NVC community. You can send a check to: The Yoga Place, 6990 Whipple Ave., NW, N.Canton, Ohio 44720.
