31 DAYS with Ramsay, Linda, Ori & Diana

 DAILY YOGA, DAILY MEDITATION, DAILY SELF-REFLECTION & A HEALTHY WHOLE FOODS DIET

Create healthier habits in the New Year!  For the month of January 2018, Ramsay Trussell (OTM owner & Yoga teacher), Linda Malcomb (Yoga teacher & Life Coach), Ori Kilner (Yoga and Meditation teacher) and "Real Foods" Nutritionist Diana Rodgers, a "Whole 30" certified coach, are teaming up to offer you “31 DAYS”. Step confidently into 2018 with a renewed commitment to your health and well-being!

For “31 Days”, we will empower you to shape new, healthy routines to ground you and awaken your appetite for life. If you are tired of feeling tired and need to re-focus your attention on your physical and mental health, this might be the start you seek.

For “31 Days”, we will use a daily yoga and meditation practice as well as self-coaching techniques and a “real food” diet to help guide you towards "whole-life health". “31 Days” is not about changing who you are. It is about changing some of your habits so you can awaken to your true Self.

For “31 Days”, we will create a community on-line, sharing meditation exercises, daily inspiration and discussion, as well as recipes and healthy eating tips, via a private support group on Facebook. Our community will also meet 4 times in person throughout the month.

Each week, we will explore a different topic as it relates to our life: BEING PRESENT, BALANCE, STRENGTH and GRATITUDE .

It's the practice of mindful, daily routines that creates lasting change in your life. Let us begin TOGETHER!!

Refill Your Well: Yin Yoga & Reiki Workshop with Lauren Ursch

During this hour and a half workshop, Lauren Ursch, M.S. RYT, Reiki Practitioner will guide you through an experiential journey of deep relaxation with a combination of ancient healing modalities including; yin yoga, reiki, and yoga nidra.

This gentle, Traditional Chinese Medicine Yin Yoga class allows for the release of mental, emotional, and physical tension and stress. Postures will be held longer to allow opening and stimulation of the deepest connective tissues and fascial networks of the body where Chi, life-force energy flows. Through this yin practice, energetic blockages and stagnant energy can be balanced thus allowing the vital energy to flow freely throughout the meridians and energy system of the body. During class, you will receive Reiki adjustments, a light touch and transfer of universal healing energy by Lauren to support this restorative process. 

You'll leave this workshop feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and spiritually connected!

Align Your Flow with Natasha Rizopolous

Align Your Flow® is meditation in motion. It’s about using the linking of breath and movement to become completely absorbed in the present moment. It’s an approach to Vinyasa Flow that emphasizes alignment as a way to develop what the ancient Yogis called eka grata or one-pointed focus. It’s a physical practice that encourages you to be your most vital and intelligent self on the mat, disengaged from the chatter that so often distracts and defines us. It’s a way to move the body consciously and thoughtfully, so you can accurately observe the effects of your actions and therefore act more skillfully, which is both the essence and the goal of Yoga. It’s about cultivating a quality of attention in your asana practice that translates into your daily life. It’s a way to create a relationship between what you do on the mat and who you are off the mat.

REGISTER NOW for Feb. 10 from 11-1.  Space will be limited to 35 and we expect to sell out.  Sign up early!

Deep Stretch & More! Monthly Workshops with Vito Politano

Vito teaches yoga, provides Thai bodywork, studies Craniosacral Therapy and has completed Reiki 1.  He is grateful and inspired to share these powerful healing practices in his teaching. Not born a yogi, it took a neck injury to lead Vito to the mat in 2004.  With a debilitating fear of public speaking, Vito began teaching with great trepidation in 2007 while working in nonprofit management, and serving as a Baptiste Yoga assistant.  The opportunity to share the benefits of these practices inspired him to take the leap into teaching.

Vito teaches mindful and challenging alignment-based classes with a strong connection to breath. He also teaches “Deep Stretch Therapy” classes incorporating myofascial release using massage balls.  Fusing active and resistant stretching and ball rolling, along with more passive yin and restorative holds to get deep into muscles and fascia. This is a great opportunity for athletes, as well as all those who simply need a good stretch, to release tension and stress while building flexibility. Special attention will be paid to the neck and shoulders, hamstrings, hips, quads and lower back. The benefit of this work will be to relieve tension created from workout endeavors as well as time spent sitting behind a desk. Yogis, runners, skiers, cyclers, bootcampers, and barre practitioners will all benefit greatly from this important investment. His care and attention to safety and therapeutics enable students to open body, heart and mind in a deep and sustainable way.

Strongly committed to self-development, Vito informs his practice through regular study and training of Yoga, philosophy, anatomy, physiology and bodywork. He incorporates all of his studies into his teaching. Vito was named lululemon Ambassador for the Boston Prudential store in 2012.  For more information: vitoyoga.com

Flower Yoga for Children with Tara Rachel Jones

Children are born in a state of yoga (union). However, in this culture, many children are moving at a much faster pace than they are naturally developing. This inevitably puts stress on their young bodies and spirits. A yoga practice gives them the opportunity to slow down, reconnect and establish their inner rhythm, thus balancing their energy. The self-motivation and independence that blossoms through their yoga practice expresses itself in other areas of their lives. Come and join the Joy and Play!
