New Yoga Class - Sweat and Surrender!

From the desk of Sara Packard E-RYT...

Announcing New Class – Sweat and Surrender!

I am so excited to announce the launch of a brand new class at OMBE, Sweat and Surrender, beginning this September on Tuesday evenings from 5pm-6pm!   This class will focus on the two opposing aspects of yoga, the Yin and the Yang.

Starting with the Yang, or “Sweat” we will:

~ Work with the more physical aspect of the practice of yoga by doing a half hour of a more vigorous Vinyasa flow.

~ Tone and lengthen muscles to create more strength in the body especially in the core.

~ Heat up the body to allow for detoxification and to give the internal organs, especially the kidneys a rest.

~ Challenge your body, but especially the mind to go beyond what you “think” you can do and find new possibilities for yourself on and off the mat!

Ending with Yin, or “Surrender” we will:

~ Slow the body down for the last half hour and use the heat from the first half to go deeper into the body and muscles.

~ Work on creating more flexibility for both the body and mind.

~ Take the time to really breathe and be still.  Maybe for the first time that day, week, month or year!

This class is open to all levels, but especially for those looking to deepen their practice and knowledge of where yoga can take us.  And if you are new to any of this my advice is to always, let yourself be new!  We all have to begin somewhere, it might as well be right where already are!  I promise, the hardest part is in showing up, but its oh so worth it!

Sara Packard Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher, Yoga Alliance 200 hrs.

Sara very vividly remembers the first time she stepped onto her yoga mat. It was a crazy, packed, crowded class and everyone was talking to their neighbor, laughing and smiling. She wasn’t quite sure why all of these people were so happy and thought that maybe she had made a mistake showing up.  Thankfully something inside told her to stay and have an open mind and by the end of that class she knew that this awesome practice of yoga was for her!  She enrolled in the teacher training program at Zuda Yoga under the guidance of Anne Marie Kramer and Bill Prysock. Upon its completion she moved back to her home in NYC and began teaching full-time for Crunch Fitness and New York Yoga. She is also a frequent guest teacher at O yoga in Syracuse, NY. Along with her husband and their pug Oscar, she is now making a new home for herself and her yoga career here in Boston and is so excited to share her love and passion for this powerful practice. What makes it so powerful, she believes, is that it isn’t about finding anything outside of what’s already inside of you!  Its about being who you already are, standing in it, breathing in it and BELIEVING in it! Her classes are known to be challenging and filled with fun, great music, stories and laughter and hopefully a few smile-asanas!  She knows that the most difficult part is in showing up, the rest you won’t regret!
