Learn to Breathe, to Heal Yourself and Your Relationships
Saturday, November 30th, 12:30pm-2:30pm at City Studio
How does the way we breathe affect our stress level, anxiety, quality of sleep, and even our relationships? Breath penetrates, breath invigorates, and breath heals. The effect of Max’s breath work can lead to profound release and calm. Other benefits may include increased energy and mental clarity. This works so quickly and effectively that Max has successfully brought his unique breathing program into the corporate world. Class will include a lecture, simple but high impact breathing exercises; very gentle breath-initiated movement, and guided meditation.

Opening the body – and finding your Emotions
Sunday, December 1st, 12:30pm-2:30pm at City Studio
This movement workshop begins very gently and then builds momentum. At the apex we move directly into a special sequence of postures that opens the internal body that induces an emotional sense of release, brings the mind into stillness, and the body into a new state of energy. This class is both challenging and very healing.
The Yoga of Nonviolent Relationships
Sunday, December 1st, 3:00pm-5:00pm at City Studio
How do you want to be remembered? Do people trust you? Respect you? How do you treat others when you don’t need anything from them? We discuss ethics every day as we complain about people’s behavior with driving, money, politics, comments on blogs, and especially romantic relationships. But we often do not look at our own actions and impact on others. Notice that we have two sets of ethics: One set we practice when calm and happy; and another when we feel afraid, angry, or exhausted. The work is to have one set of ethics to protect those we love from our anger.
The seminar will give you knowledge to take home and to work with you to help you live a more vital and peaceful life. Class includes lecture and writing. Profound, funny, and very timely! Bring writing materials.
