Evening Classes Added at Concordia Starting January 22nd

Season is in full swing and the popularity of the yoga program at Concordia is growing by bounds. In this spirit of expansion, we announce the addition of evening classes.

STARTING JANUARY 22nd From 5:30 to 6:45 PM on Tuesday evenings returning St. John Yoga, Qi Gong and Tai Chi teacher Emily Sada Sukh Sorensen offers an evening Hatha practice.

Expect the announcement of more additions to the evening schedule at Concordia. We welcome feedback on what nights of the week and what times you would like to see us add.

Help us welcome Emily to Concordia. Here is an introduction to Emily’s philosophy on practice:

The moving practices of yoga serve multiple purposes such as flushing the organs of toxins, strengthening and stretching the muscles, quieting the fluctuations of thoughts in the mind and preparing the body for meditation. As we learn to “be inside” our bodies, we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and the triggers that lead us to particular patterns. The stillness practices give us the space to let go of anything that does not serve us and connects us to the “One Source”; providing peaceful soul nurturing and harnessing our prana.

The human body needs both Yin and Yang exercises to maintain a healthy balance throughout a lifetime. Taoist Yoga suggests to explore both the gross anatomy and the subtle anatomy; the rhythmic dynamic movements of Yang Yoga and the soft, long-held static deep tissue stretches of Yin Yoga.

Each is beneficial, dependent upon what is needed to keep the harmony of self. Taoist Yoga teaches the skillful means upon which to build a personal practice that serves the individual; organically unfolding each day of life, to provide optimum health. There are myriad movements and meditations to pool from, practice teaches us what to utilize and when.

Combining the streams of yoga, with clear intentions, is awakening the DNA of Humanity and the connected consciousness is strengthening, pushing up to blossom like a lotus from a pond. Chanting mantra is reinforcing the new patterns to build a foundation of infinity going forward into the Aquarian Age.

Of course, our highest priority is mastering the inhalation and exhalation, linked intentionally with our stillness or movement, in the appropriate rhythms. This awakens us to our highest potential and gives back with radiance, clarity & strength. The more we put in to the practice, the more we receive for body, mind and spirit!
