Rolling and Falling for Cyclists This Sunday April 6th 1-3pm in The Sun Room

quantum

More Info Here

Hosted by Quantum Martial Arts, this FREE monthly workshop offers cyclists the opportunity to practice falling in a safe, padded environment.

Rolling on the mat will train you to roll safely on the road as you learn to dive, survive, and return quickly to your feet. Using techniques borrowed from Judo (“the gentle way”), you’ll practice dispersing energy as you hit the ground, avoiding direct impact on your joints and bones.

Diving rolls for distance throws, hard rolls for close-range impact, side falls and moving on the ground will all be covered. Partner movement drills will improve your reflexes, increasing response time and honing the concept of living in the moment. Training awareness and focus will help the smart city cyclist and weekend adventurer be prepared to make life-saving decisions instantly. Taught by Master Rachael Evans. Wear comfortable clothes you can move in. For more info email amy@quantumsf.org.

Jefferson is going to Bikram Yoga Teacher Training

jefferson

Jefferson started practicing Bikram Yoga at the Funky Door back in 2001, at the same studio and about the same time that Juicy and Steve23 started!

He joined Mission Yoga back in 2006 shortly after we took over from the original owner. Jefferson has been a Karma Yogi for the last year, helping make Mission Yoga the vibrant studio you love so much.

As his practice deepened over the years he felt a desire to share his passion through teaching. Finally his dream is becoming reality.

Wish him safe travels as he takes the next step on his yogic journey. He will be joining several hundred other trainees in Los Angeles on a 9-week adventure. The training includes 2 classes per day, posture clinics, anatomy, yogic philosophy, yoga therapy, and of course, Bollywood movies.

We look forward to welcoming Jefferson back from training in June where he will be joining our team of teachers.

The Core Elements of Yoga – Breath, Bandhas, & Drishti

What is Yoga? This workshop is designed to help you define Yoga for yourself and understand its origins and benefits using the simplest, yet most powerful, techniques. If you are interested in learning more about the non-physical aspects of Yoga as well as looking for a way to gain a deeper knowledge and foundation for your yoga practice, you will benefit from this workshop.

There are eight limbs of Yoga in the Ashtanga Vinyasa system. In this workshop, you will also learn how to energize and focus your mind and body through pranayama (life force) techniques that will help you successfully connect mind, body and breath for physical and mental transformation.

Date: Sunday, April 13, 2014 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Cost: $25 in advance, $30 at the door
