Renewable You - Lisa Sherman

Modern life can trigger our nervous systems into chronic fight/flight, causing stress, burnout, and health problems. Learn how to purposefully switch on your relaxation response with mindful movement that weaves together the energizing yang of flow yoga with the relaxing yin of qigong and meditation. Become a renewable resource for yourself and your community.

Set to a lush eastern-influenced psychedelic soundtrack, dynamic flow yoga will help participants raise their energy levels. A series of yin techniques (pranayama, qigong, meditation) will be woven into the flow, teaching attendees how to consciously switch on the body's relaxation response. At the end of the class participants should have access to multiple simple methods for overcoming the stresses of modern living, empowering them to renew their own bioenergetic systems and allowing them to become a sustainable resource for whatever community projects they choose to participate in.

Suitable for: all ages

Duration: 90 minutes

Presenter: Lisa Sherman


Bio

Lisa lives in the mountains of North Carolina, teaching at Asheville Yoga Center and practicing acupuncture. Her passion for environmental justice led her to unite yoga practice with environmental activism, founding Yogis Beyond Coal. A yoga practitioner since 2000, and a teacher since 2011, Lisa's practice is rooted in dynamic vinyasa flow. Her background in Chinese medicine leads her to balance these yang styles with the softer, yin forms of qigong and sitting meditation.

Luminate for me:

"Luminate's focus on sustainability and environmental protection is aligned with my own worldview and teaching style, so it seems like the perfect place for me to present a workshop. I am also very interested to see how Luminate operates the facilities for such a large event, while taking care of the local ecosystem, and how it inspires participants to take those principles of sustainability back to implement them in their own lives."
 

Volunteer applications are now open !
