Sweat & Samadhi


This class is taught by:

Karen Mandell

 
Karen Mandell E- RYT 500
Studio Owner/Teacher

 

Karen began practicing yoga in 1998 as a means to escape her fast paced life as a fashion executive in New York City. She soon discovered how a regular yoga practice brought a much needed balance to her life on both a physical and spiritual level as well as a deeper connection with herself and the world around her. She was called to teaching in 2009 and received her 200-hour certification from the Bright Spirit Yoga Teacher training with Jillian Pransky and Carrie Parker. She later went on to receive her 300-hour training and certification at ISHTA Yoga in NYC with Kavi Yogiraj Alan Finger. Karen also received her Advanced Level Restorative and Therapeutics Yoga Training with Jillian Pransky at Yoga Works as well as her  Yin Yoga Levels 1 &2 certification with Ulrica Norberg and additional Yin Yoga  trainings with Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley.

 

She began teaching to teachers herself in 2013, sharing what was shared with her by these masters in various teacher training programs as well as her own Sattva Yoga Restorative Yoga training and Yin Yoga training.

 

Karen delights in teaching family yoga as well, she received both her her Kid's and Family Yoga training with Karma Kids as well as Post-Natal and Yoga Mom Buddha Baby Training with Jhotyi Larsen in 2011.

 

Classes with Karen invite a joyful opening in body, mind, and heart. Her classes are tailored from the traditional ISHTA lineage of chakra-based vinyasa yoga. ISHTA stands for the Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda.  Her classes combine the graceful flow of Vinyasa yoga and the mindful alignment of Iyengar yoga with balancing pranayama (breath), kria and meditation techniques. The word Ishta translates from sanskrit as "that which resonates with the individual spirit". She believes that yoga is all about finding the balance within ourselves that exists inherently but simply needs to be rediscovered by removing the obstacles that keep us from being our authentic selves and finding our connection with Jiva Atman, the unique spirit that resonates within all of us.

 

Ida Rose Kenna

Ida is a 200 hour RYT having trained with the Yoga in The World school of yoga. Ida has practiced yoga and meditated daily for her entire adult life. From the first time she walked into a yoga class, “I found home.” Ida is also a licensed Psychotherapist with a strong focus on mindfulness, appealing to one's awareness in the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and movements. Ida’s core belief is that we take our yoga off of the mat, and into the world. Yoga is a way of being. Her classes are designed to challenge her students, focus on the breath, and prepare them to sit for meditation. The asana sequences are often guided by the precepts of the Yoga Sutras, and infused with mythical storytelling. Ida’s classes will reflect her love, and knowledge of music. You can expect rock and roll, chanting, instrumental, and every type of music imaginable. Ida’s intention is to make yoga accessible to all through her own experiences and challenges, meeting each and every student where they are in body, mind and spirit.
Based on the ISHTA Yoga school‘s Sweat and Samadhi class, this 90 minute class is designed to bring balance to your physical and subtle body by experiencing the Yin and the Yang of the practice, heating and cooling, effort and ease.
First we SWEAT, burning out the impurities of the body with a strong asana practice with a focus on twists and core work, stoking our inner fire. Then we let go and release tension in the body and mind as we melt in a series of propped restorative postures to help calm the nervous system and quiet the mind. We close with a meditation practice that will help lead you back to your source of true potential, or SAMADHI, which is the true state of yoga.
Available to all levels with some yoga experience, not suggested for brand new Beginners.
