Facets of Being:

A 3-Part Yoga Series

May 2021

with Margi Young & Jennifer Brilliant

Please join Jennifer Brilliant and Margi Young for a fresh exploration of yoga poses with imagery, poetry, meditation, and breath to illuminate our subtle and anatomical bodies. We will examine ideas from classical yoga to find how relevant they are today as tools to navigate this complex world.

You are encouraged to join all three classes, but also welcome to join a single class. The class will be 75 minutes with an additional 15 minutes post-class session to ask questions and chat about all things yoga! If you can’t attend the classes live, you will receive a recording to view at your convenience.

Options will always be given for all levels of practitioner.

Class One – Saturday, May 1st:

FIRE: Moving Energy & The Sun

This class will give an overview of the philosophies in this Facets of Being series, which are the qualities of energy (the 3 Gunas) and the main energetic channels (the 3 Nadis). We will then do a passionate practice complete with sun salutations, backbends, and inversions. This cultivation of energy will highlight how important the sun/hot/fire aspect of our lives is and how we can use its power.

Class Two – Saturday, May 8th: 

HAMMOCK: Slow Down & The Moon

This will be a gentle practice with stretching, restorative poses, calming breath awareness, and yoga nidra, a guided relaxation. Listening to others, digesting our experiences, and quieting our minds are deep, rich qualities we will explore. 

Class Three – Saturday, May 15th:

HARMONY: Balance & Luminosity

For the final class of this series, you will be invited into a balanced flow of poses to cultivate harmony.  Together we will learn to move in and out of a content center with the intention to expand that space. Interweaving poses and principals from weeks 1 and 2 of this series, we will find skillful ways to balance on our feet, hands, and heads giving you stability, mobility and a sense of lightness.

 

BIO:

The connection between Margi Young and Jennifer Brilliant began in September, 2000 at Cyndi Lee’s OM Yoga in NYC. As Margi’s teacher during her intensive teacher training program, Jennifer turned out to become a lifelong teacher, as well as a dear friend.  Now in May 2021, they are joining their 50 combined years of yoga teaching and 20 years of friendship  to offer Facets of Being. This is not to be missed!

Post-Pandemic Re-Emergence

April 11 – has been postponed

Please stay tuned for the new date…

10:00 am – 12:30 pm EST

                                                                                              (Last 15 mins optional Q&A/discussion)

                                                         $25

With Spring in the air and a promise from the President that there will be enough vaccinations for everyone by the end of May, it feels as if we’re all about to be sprung from our at-home lockdowns. As exciting as this is, it might still be a tricky transition. For many, especially women, our natural strategy in times of stress is “tend and befriend” – to protect and seek out social groups for mutual defense. However, this year we’ve done a lot more tending – and dealing with loss – and much less befriending/girlfriend time.

So how do we plan for our emergence into a post-pandemic world? How will our relationships and interactions give us the support we need after a year of deprivation?

Join Jennifer Brilliant and Yael Flusberg as they share yoga and creative tactics to bring us back from the brink of Burnout to a place where re-emergence is possible.
