        The Joy of Yoga & The Art of Living (Midwest)

        Do What You Love

        Celebrate your love of Yoga and life! The major benefit of Yoga is the deepening awareness of one’s self. Become your best friend through exercising loving-kindness and curiosity, patience and gentle persistence. Yoga can inspire our life, and life can inspire our Yoga. You will learn to experience greater freedom in your body in the postures, while emphasizing the power of your breath, the strength of your grounded body, and a wonderful increase in energy. Harness the skills necessary to discover freedom in your Yoga and life! Feel revitalized, spacious and expansive. It is Alie’s intent for you to experience your natural state of peace. Come and enjoy yourself and your Yoga!

        Morning class:

        Discover Comfort and Ease in Your Daily Life

        Rediscover balance in your body. Assess postural habits and learn how to come back to your center. Experience balance by grounding and enlightening, doing and undoing, relaxing and energizing, and centering and expanding. This special class is specifically designed for those who wish to honor and open and strengthen the hips and shoulders, and experience being centered. You will explore how to detect and release unconscious holding patterns throughout your shoulders and hips. Together we will bring awareness, tenderness, and an active curiosity to the hips and shoulders, and the whole body, revealing a sense of spaciousness that is truly enlightening! Be ready for innovative pose variations, the experience of spontaneous joy, and increased luminosity.

        Afternoon class:

        Coming Home to You

        Unwind from the rigors of daily life with restorative and gentle Yoga, breath work, and meditation. In this class you will explore the chakras, nadis, and visualization. The meaning of the word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word “wheel”, and may be experienced as an energy center in the body. You will become attuned to the location of the chakras and the effects of opening and moving your energy within your body. In the Yogic tradition, nadis are known as currents of energy. As you immerse in the physical postures and release stress and tensions, you will sense an inner fluidity within your body. Nadis can be experienced as streams of energy. When you draw your attention to the interior landscape of you, there is an opportunity to enlighten and be sensitive to these natural pranic streams. This Yoga practice is designed to draw you into a deep relaxation – effortlessly – while offering you an opportunity to experience your natural state of peace.

        Cost: $40

Through an intelligent and thoughtful sequence, you’ll develop the skills necessary to experience joy and happiness in balancing postures, backbending and inversions. Watch your clarity and energy increase as you explore essential alignment, breathing techniques and customized pose variations. Balance is not simply holding or fixing yourself in a static position but allowing your awareness to expand outward from your center, radiating throughout your whole body. Discover your balance between grounding and enlightening, doing and undoing, relaxing and energizing, and centering and expanding. Each posture has many variations, and may be modified for students of all levels. Feel empowered and trust yourself to do what is best for you and your body – always. Essential elements of this practice include careful preparation and sequencing, exploring the stages of each posture, as well as enjoying your breath. Backbending and inversions are so much fun, please join me!

        Saturday May 4, 2019 | 5:00pm - 7:00pm | $50

        Refresh + Restore

        Take your restorative yoga practice to the next level by going deeper into a state of relaxation and calm. Many people think of relaxing as a few minutes of quiet or sleep, but it’s possible to use your yoga practice to help you experience a deeper sense of peace. Through a gentle asana practice, essential breath worth and meditation, you’ll bring balance to your nervous system allowing you to reach the most enjoyable aspects of a still yet present life. This session is designed to melt away anxieties and provide you with tools that you can use regularly to take care of yourself and help you live your best, most enjoyable life. Get good at slowing down and enjoy the ride.

        Freedom Yoga in Millennium Park

        There is a certain magic to Chicago on Saturday mornings in the summer: the sun rising magnificently over the lake, the city sleepy and still before the tourists begin to bustle around downtown. For the past few years, I’ve had the honor of teaching yoga in the heart of this world-class city, in the famous Millennium Park. This free event allows everyone to enjoy the immense benefits of yoga. There is a sacredness to this practice: Rising early. Rolling out your yoga mat in the green dewy grass. Taking in the fresh early morning air and feeling the crispness of the new day. Sensing into the wide-open expanse of the park and the bright blue sky above. Joining together with fellow Chicagoans in contemplative movement. Breathing together. Stretching, strengthening, discovering balance and even maybe a new friend. Exhilaration and excitement give way to centered calm. I can feel it now! Please join me!

          Yoga in Millennium Park

          Saturdays In July - LAST ONE!!!

          8 - 8:45 AM

          Pritzker Lawn

          FREEDOM YOGA in Millennium Park

          at the beautiful site of my DVD!!

          Join me for my summer tradition of yoga in the park on the Pritzker Lawn.  All levels welcome and classes are complimentary from the City of Chicago!

          Learn more about Millennium Park Summer Workouts here!

           

          There is a certain magic to Chicago on Saturday mornings in the summer: the sun rising magnificently over the lake, the city sleepy and still before the tourists begin to bustle around downtown. For the past few years, I’ve had the honor of teaching yoga in the heart of this world-class city, in the famous Millennium Park. This free event allows everyone to enjoy the immense benefits of yoga. There is a sacredness to this practice: Rising early. Rolling out your yoga mat in the green dewy grass. Taking in the fresh early morning air and feeling the crispness of the new day.  Sensing into the wide-open expanse of the park and the bright blue sky above.  Joining together with fellow Chicagoans in contemplative movement. Breathing together. Stretching, strengthening, discovering balance and even maybe a new friend.  Exhilaration and excitement give way to centered calm. I can feel it now!

          Thanks to my parents’ encouragement I recently realized my dream of creating Freedom Yoga in Millennium Park as a DVD so all could enjoy this special practice year-round.  Three guided classes show real people doing yoga. Each person is so wonderfully unique and each yogi is free to experience and express the truth of who they are in that moment.

          With a new summer upon us, join me in the park. Discover the beauty of yoga. Supported by the earth, armed with curiosity, guided by excellent and precise instruction, you will tune into the magic of your own body and leave more connected to who you truly are.
