EmPowerFlow Yoga is based on the asanas/poses of Hatha Yoga and the energy principles of Polarity Therapy. Asanas vitalize both the physical and subtle anatomy of the human body. Polarity therapy, based on the Ayurvedic and yogic model of energy relationships, outlines three forces of energy called the Gunas, i.e, the qualities of energy allowing all of creation.
This weekend is focused on the sattvic principle of neutrality, essence and stillness. Within all motion is stillness. To change gears we must go through neutral; a moment of tuning into the inner guidance.
Slowing down, tapping in to this space promotes each next pose to be practiced with mindfulness and safety.
Neutral is the space that allows the ‘more’ of insight, knowledge and self realization to come through.
Sinking into meditation becomes easier. Flowing into postures becomes more graceful.
Your unique expression as a being and a teacher naturally comes through.
This weekend will be highly experiential as we dive into the process of what my dear teacher Erich Schiffman calls, “moving into stillness.”
Our class gathering is to explore the universe of yoga, a universe that is within each of us…..the following will be included:
Explore the concept of space, inner and outer
How does space hold the earth?
Outline the 3 Gunas and the inherent nature of their function
How can we possibly slow down and still our very busy minds?
What is exhaustion?
Asana flow, easy and intense, release blocked energy felt as pain, stiffness, fear
EmPowerFlow Yoga empowers us to be more of who we truly and naturally are
As we gather together, we ignite a co-creation of conscious intention to awaken the light in all beings. We sit, breathe, and move together on this leading edge of expansion. This is such a profound time of breaking through the constrictions of our personal past as well as the isolation in the world.
You are invited to bring All of you. Ask the ‘crazy’ questions like what was life really like for me pre-pandemic? What are the little, or now maybe louder, whispers that are calling for your attention.

We are in such a deep, transformative time. When we choose to listen in, there are such intense stirrings; some difficult to navigate. Yoga promotes awareness of this process. From the classes I've been teaching over these last many pandemic weeks, I have begun to see participants moving more into stillness. Something is truly transpiring beyond all that appears.
EmPowerFlow is the process of slowing down enough to listen in, stretch and power up. Teaching yoga has often been said to be the hardest job you'll ever have. Well, I must say that has a ring because we must keep up with Thy Self so that Thy Self can keep up with every student. What an incredible win/win. “The time flows fast as you slow down and the results are amazing.”
This weekend meets the requirements for 2 certification programs. One is sponsored by Etowah Valley which meets the requirements for Registered Yoga Instructors. Second : this is the 2nd of 3 weekend trainings plus private sessions for becoming an EmPowerFlow Yoga Teacher. More details will be announced as we keep navigating!
Here's more great feedback to share with you: *The five hour car trip from Conyers to St Simon's was easily manageable because of our yoga practice. We stopped twice to stretch and appreciated the skills we've learned to keep our bodies moving and grooving. 😊 Much gratitude to you! Shelley, Conyers
*Hey Eleanora, the hip stretches were great, the leg pain was totally gone after the class. Isn’t that incredible? Thanks so much for the help. I’ll “see” Donna tomorrow. -❤️Judy, Conyers
*We've loved the classes and so appreciate the routine of regular yoga movement guidance. Thank you once again. hugs and love, Shelley, Conyers
* Cathy in Conyers says she is 'loving classes on zoom!'
* And our friend Mary is now joining us from Sedona and connecting with old pals here in Georgia.

Are you a practitioner of the Healing Arts - a Polarity Practitioner, a Healthcare Professional, a Mental Health Counselor or an individual committed to your own personal growth?
This retreat will provide tools to help you assist your clients more fully connect with their body as their internal guidance system through Intuitive Yoga.
This retreat will take participants on an inner journey of the energy pathways through Dr. Stone’s easy stretches, yoga poses, and mindfulness of movement. The primary intention is to ground and open the pathways within the body; to feel the qualities of the pathways and ease the energy through the tight, injured and painful spaces within.
The aging process alone can be especially challenging, and when complicated with inflammation and stiffness; we can help others profoundly enhance core vitality with focus and movement. I am working deeply with clients in yoga class, in the gym with weights, and those limited to chair exercise to help them discover where they have strength and range of motion where they simply have not been aware. Pain has become more of a path of complacent suffering. Yet there is still a spark that just maybe they can feel better, get around better. My oldest client at 97 years old, has been so overwhelmed by sciatic pain, that he did not know how much strength was in his arms that is now assisting him to move, get up, and feel better about himself.
Another client, 65 years old, after working for a year with a weight trainer, has locked her shoulders and the back muscles. The upper back has formed with minimal flexibility.
Working consistently with Dr. Stone’s cliff hangers and spinal releases, and other practices, we are beginning to see an increased range of motion. The greatest challenge is training her mind to be more receptive of the subtle movement and power of breath and energy.
The energy principles of polarity, after 35+ years, have become more alive and applicable then maybe ever! Understanding and working with the core breath and core muscles to stabilize and protect the skeleton and nerve pathways is simple and simply overlooked. Profound shifts happen in the consciousness of the body which then brings clarity to the mind…often quite startling.
