2018 Workshop Calendar with Allison English

From Earth to Sky - April 21 - 1-3pm - Namaskar Yoga - Chicago, IL

Earth is a truly immense and unique place spanning from the depths of the ground all the way through the atmosphere - and every last piece of it is precious territory for life as we know it! Celebrate Earth Day by remembering your own connection to this floating rock we call home through the energies of your practice. Earth is the energy of being grounded and alive. Sky is the energy of opportunity and recognizing ourselves in the vastness of the universe. This Forrest Yoga workshop will wed together both of these energies through rooted standing poses and centering abdominal play with airy deep breaths and the expansive perspective you receive from inversions. Come plant your strong roots through your feet and hands, align back to your own central axis, grow strong through your core, and remember the vast viewpoint that YOU are an integral thread of the Earth and Sky. This workshop will have options for all levels of practitioners and pregnant students are welcome to attend.

Price: $35/$30 by April 7     Registration: Namaskar

Space In: Awareness in Action - May 26 - 1-3:30pm - Namaskar Yoga - Chicago, IL

All current evidence points to the quandary that our focus is being challenged by our devices, by our social media habits and by the general fast pace of life. It can be easy to meet the overwhelm of daily experience by spacing out and to think that is the only way of coping. Your yoga practice, however, can be a practice where you "Space In" and develop your strong, centered ability to focus and pay attention in a feeling way - relieving the anxiety and the pull of modern living. This workshop will fuse a full length Forrest Yoga practice with a delightful iRest Yoga Nidra meditation to help you re-develop your skillful awareness. Come immerse yourself in the feelings of your practice, explore breathing techniques to develop your concentration, delve into your steadiness with standing balance postures and relax into a deep dive of welcoming all that is a part of you rather than spacing out from it. This practice is appropriate for all levels of practitioners and pregnant students are welcome to attend.

Price: $40/$35 by May 12   Registration: Namaskar

"I would travel to the ends of the earth for Allison; she never ceases to amaze my mind, body and
soul with Forrest yoga. Yoga in Telluride was amazing, not just for the beautiful scenery,
but for the gift that keeps on giving, Allison! Her energy engages you in a way that is
so genuine and keeps you coming back for more. She is able to reach everyone, whether
doing yoga for 2 or 20 years. Nothing worth doing is ever easy and Allison embodies
that saying like no other. Her classes are always challenging but her sequences leave me
feeling like I got exactly what I needed, even though I didn’t know I needed it. Telluride
was no different, in fact it was more! The first session, Intro to Forrest Yoga, was a
heart opening class. Thanks to Allison’s systematic sequencing
and focus on the importance of breath, my body generated enough heat to be able to
experience all her class had to offer. During savasana, I could not stop seeing the color
red. People talk of seeing different colors, an experience I have never had, until this
class in Telluride. The second class, liberating your life force, a hip opening class went
beyond my highest expectations. Thirty minutes into a 90 minute class, I had an out of
body experience. With my eyes closed and while deeply opening my hips, I was able to
experience the most amazing feeling of clarity. I was able to see my little self looking
at my big Self, through a small window. And finally, her third class, transform through
twisting ended the yoga festival with as much enthusiasm as her first class." - Victoria
