staycationGOLDEN WEEK STAYCATION with Leza and Em at Sun and Moon Gotanda

Thursday May 2 - Friday May 3
9:00am - 7:00pm

Golden Week Yoga Retreat in Tokyo

Join Leza Lowitz and Em Bettinger for a 2-day Staycation at Sun and Moon Yoga, immersing yourself in pranayama, meditation, asana and community to re-charge and revitalise your body, mind and spirit.

Each day, Em will lead you through a simple meditation practice that you can take away and incorporate into your daily morning routine. This will be followed by a classical kriya and pranayama practice as taught at Kaivalyadhama in India. Then she will guide you through Asana practice.

We will break for lunch, and resume with mindfulness meditation and Restorative yoga with Leza.

It is our intention that you leave each day feeling full, inspired and refreshed—as if you have gone on Vacation.

TIME SCHEDULE (Day 1 & 2)
9.00am-10.15am Pranayama/Meditation with Em
10.30am-12.30pm Vinyasa Yoga with Em (Day1: Calm you Overactive Mind, Develop Awareness, Day 2: Just a little bit of yin and a little bit of yang)
1.00pm-2.00pm Free time for Lunch
2:30pm-4:30pm Mindfulness Meditation (Day 1: Mindfulness meditation including Lovingkindness (Metta) Meditation, Day 2: Mindfulness meditation including Taking & Giving (Tonglen) Meditation)
5:00pm-7:00pm Restorative Yoga with Leza

PROGRAM DETAILS:
VINYASA YOGA with EM

- Day 1: Calm you Overactive Mind, Develop Awareness
The external can not always be controlled by you, but the internal always can. Tuning out from the overactive mind and bringing ourselves to a place of awareness of the movement of breath and energy as it needs to happen today. We use movement to come to a place of stillness. Honoring any tension and tiredness we start with supported backbends and forward folds. Build heat through some core action to then flow into a transformative practice. Move with it! Enjoy the dance! Every pose is an opportunity to find stillness and quietness.

- Day 2: Just a little bit of yin and a little bit of yang
A creative class where the yang comes before the yin as we move with variations of sun salutations and some dynamic yang posture, then easing our way into some passive cooling yin practice with a focus on the hips, back and legs. No matter style of practice you prefer, we are all going for the same thing: self acceptance, love, peace, presence and awareness. This really is a class that has something for everybody!

MEDITATION with LEZA
- Day 1: Mindfulness and Lovingkindness Meditation
On Day 1, we will practice mindfulness meditation. Then we will move into the Lovingkindness Meditation, or Metta Bhavana. This practice was created by Buddha to help us develop a state of inner harmony so that we can have less conflict in our lives. In Sanskrit, Metta means “love” or “lovingkindness” and bhavana means “cultivation.” This practice is one in which we cultivate compassion & love for self & others.

This heart-centered meditation practice allows us to send ourselves positive energy and love. We can send others love and forgiveness. We can thus heal our pains and bring balance to our relationships with others. The more we do that, the more harmonious our lives will be. With time for journalling/reflection, partnerwork and Q & A.

- Day 2: Mindfulness and Taking/Giving Meditation
On Day 2, we will practice mindfulness meditation. Then we will move into Tonglen. Of this brave and powerful meditation practice, Joan Halifax Roshi says: “Tonglen is a practice of great kindness that opens up our whole being to the overwhelming presence of suffering (our own and that of others) and our strength and willingness to transform alienation into compassion through the energy of mercy and the cultivation of openness.” With time for journalling/reflection, partnerwork and Q & A.

LEVELS:
All levels, beginners welcome. Prior notification for special circumstances (injuries, pregnancy) required.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS:
Leza Lowitz

Em Bettinger loves movement and the mechanics of it, and started dancing from an early age, going on to study contemporary dance at 18. Through her dance studies she was introduced to yoga. Em sees yoga as a “dance on the mat” - the breath guiding you and energy radiating from within.

Em teaches Ashtanga Yoga, Yin/Yang Yoga and Vinyasa Flow at Sun and Moon.

Your vibration is unique, and becoming intimate with these powerful practices will guide you into deeper alignment, reconnection to your true essence, mental clarity and inner peace. It has been scientifically proven that the whole universe is made of vibrations. The ancient Indian scriptures actually affirm that the universe was created by sound.

We will experiment with various Nada, Mantra and Bhakti Yoga practices to support your yogic
journey.

This course is open to all levels of students. This Immersion/TTC is especially powerful for teachers that are interested in leading chanting, mantra and learning how to use your voice as an instrument of transformation for yourself and for your students.

8. Gods and Goddesses: Learn about the mythology of the Indian Gods and Goddesses in relation to the mantras and how they can support your spiritual path.

What is Nada Yoga?
Nada Yoga, or the Yoga of Sound, is the ancient spiritual art and science of inner transformation through sound and tone. Nada Yoga embraces the belief that the universe is vibratory, made up on infinitesimally small subatomic strands of energy vibrating at different frequencies. All objects in nature vibrate at varying speeds, contributing to their particular sound. We are constantly surrounded by sounds, which are in effect vibrations that have a profound effect on our own vibratory field, and therefore our well being.
Nada Yoga involves deep listening to the sounds of the universe, including the inner sounds of the body, the sounds of nature and of course, music. Our mind becomes easily absorbed in sound. This is why people (and even animals) enjoy listening to music. When the mind is fully concentrated on anything, a feeling of inner bliss arises. Listening to soothing sounds can take us into a deeply meditative state. The practice of Nada Yoga is dedicated to using sound vibration to deeply relax and unify the body, mind, heart and soul, and is an accessible path to connecting our inner bliss state.

What is Bhakti Yoga?
The Sanskrit word bhakti comes from the root bhaj, which means “to adore or worship God.”
Bhakti yoga has been called “love for love’s sake” and “union through love and devotion.” Bhakti yoga, like any other form of yoga, is a path to self-realization, to having an experience of oneness with everything.
“Bhakti is the yoga of a personal relationship with the Divine,” says musician Jai Uttal, who learned the art of devotion from his guru, the late Neem Karoli Baba. At the heart of bhakti is surrender, says Uttal, who lives in California but travels the globe leading kirtans and chanting workshops.
Yoga scholar David Frawley agrees. In his book, Yoga: The Greater Tradition, he writes that the ultimate expression of bhakti yoga is surrender to the Divine as one’s inner self. The path, he says, consists of concentrating one’s mind, emotions, and senses on the Divine.

What is Mantra Yoga?
Mantra yoga is a type of yoga that uses mantras to awaken the Self and deepen the meditative aspects of a physical yoga practice. Mantra yoga is an exact science that is meant to engage the mind through focusing on sound, duration and number of repetitions. Repetition of the mantras is a means to get closer to the divinity within, and it creates positive vibrations that benefit both the one who chants and the one who listens.
Mantra yoga may also be referred to as Japa yoga. Japa is a Sanskrit word for the act of repeating mantras.

Daphne is a spirited, soulful artist and teacher originally from Texas. Her passion for music started from a young age and took her west to Los Angeles after university. Since her initial yoga class 20 years ago, she has explored merging her spiritual practice with her contemporary folk singer/songwriter style. She studied music at The University of Texas at Austin, Berklee College of Music, The Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago and Kirtan with Kirtan master, Jai Uttal.

In 2009 while living in Bali, Daphne co-founded SpiritDance SoulSong with her friend and mentor, Ellen Watson. SpiritDance SoulSong is an embodied movement, sounding, singing and fully integrated practice that brings us back to our medicinal roots of the yoga of dance & sound.

20-Hour Restorative Yoga Teacher Training Certification Course Level 1
restorative_cuwith Leza Lowitz at Sun and Moon Yoga in 2019

Schedule
July 2019
Friday July 12 6pm-10:00pm (4 hrs)
Saturday July 13 6pm-10:00pm (4 hrs)
Sunday July 14 3pm-8:30pm (5.5 hrs)
Monday/National Holiday July 15 9am-4:30pm (6.5 hrs + 1hr lunch time)

Come join us for this popular, comprehensive and life-changing teacher training.

Why Restorative Yoga? Why Now?
Daily life is incredibly stressful, especially in an urban environment. We spend a great deal of energy just trying to survive, often running on adrenaline (the “fight or flight response”) until we burn out. Now more than ever, we need a slower, deeper yoga practice that helps us regain our equilibrium and combat the stresses of modern life. Restorative yoga is one such practice that invites the body’s “relaxation response,” calms the nervous system, and quiets the mind. Restorative Yoga is a deeply relaxing, “passive” practice of Hatha Yoga in which we let go of physical, mental and emotional tension by practicing yoga poses in a fully supported environment, holding the poses for longer durations of time, and focusing on the breath. Supported by a variety of props such as bolsters, blankets, blocks, belts, sandbag weights, and other props, this practice helps us regain the equilibrium of the body/spirit, allowing deep relaxation, surrender and opening. This practice is perfect for those who have injuries, are recovering from illness, those with physical limitations, or those who simply want to relax and regain harmony and balance in their lives.

COURSE CONTENT
In this teacher training, you will learn: What is Restorative Yoga? How does it work physiologically, psycho-spiritually, and emotionally? Proper use of Props: How to set up each pose. How to spot and correct common mistakes in prop usage Restorative sequences for different effects Many original restorative postures developed by Leza Specific poses/practices for specific therapeutic needs (insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, etc). Pranayama for Restorative yoga How to design a Restorative yoga class around a specific theme or focus. How to incorporate other forms of yoga therapy into Restorative yoga, such as Thai Yoga Massage, Visualization, Guided Meditation, Yoga Nidra, etc.

This course will also discuss concepts such as” How Yoga Works” using the Inner and Outer methods of thought/intention and Five Layers of Experience (koshas). Meditations and Inner Work sessions will be incorporated into the teachings on Restorative asanas.

COURSE FORMAT Classes will be part lecture, part practice, part demonstration in which students will set each other up in the poses and practice with each other, and part question and answer period/discussion.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Leza Lowitz has been teaching and practicing Hatha and Restorative yoga for over a decade. She was the first teacher to introduce Restorative yoga to Japan in 2003. (When Sun and Moon shipped all the props from America, customs officials held them for months because they had to test every pillow and eye bag for hidden drugs!) She has offered her highly popular Restorative yoga classes at workshops and on retreats internationally. She appeared on “99 Size” teaching Restorative yoga in 2004. She is a writer and certified yoga teacher who has studied many yogic and healing traditions with many illustrious teachers and masters from all over the world. She is the owner of Sun and Moon Yoga and author of the best-selling book Yoga Poems: Lines to Unfold By and Sacred Sanskrit Words: For Yoga, Chant and Meditation (with Reema Datta) in addition to 18 other books.
