The Tree House Spreads its Roots

Green Monkey is bringing all the tree houses together for a weekend of yoga enlightenment. John Friend and Desi Springer will be swinging by to teach yogi's of all skill levels the power of practice and hatha yoga during The Roots.
The weekend workshop series offers classes across all three tree houses during which John will emphasize the practice of yoga as a spiritual unfoldment through positive mind-body discipline, technical postural alignment, and creative play.
Each day of the workshop delves deeper into the sequence, with more detail on how to customize techniques for one's own practice. The theme for each class will use a life-affirming attitude, good alignment, and disciplined yet lighthearted action to transform student into their full potential in body, mind, and heart. John will also incorporate pranayama and meditation for a well-rounded weekend of yoga practice. The diversity of the classes offers a point of interest to all skill levels.

Ayurveda Workshop

soni

As a local karmic guide, Green Monkey knows that we need, not only movement, but knowledge to bring peace to our bodies.

Sunday, April 14th, the Miami Beach Tree House will be hosting an Ayurveda Workshop taught by Soni.

 

Ayurveda is the 5,000 year old Indian science of life and healthy living. It has brought true health and wellness to millions of individuals throughout the ages with simple changes in daily living practices.

spices

 

Soni will introduce you to Ayurveda using a simple questionnaire to begin the process of determining your dosha. Through group discussion, we'll refine that determination and talk about what that means, guiding you through what to eat and not eat, problematic skin, elimination, moods, and other issues that may be brought up in class.

 

Hope all you monkeys join us as we learn what our bodies are really asking for.

 

 

Heads Up, Monkeys!

Yogi of the Month: Staci Kanter


staci kenter
For this month of March, Green Monkey was lucky enough to get some one-on-one time with Staci Kanter.
Staci has been a student of the tree house for about 5 years and a yoga practitioner for over 5 and a half years.

How did you get started?:

I wanted to try something different after years at the gym.  I cannot say that I loved it at first.  I was a bit impatient, and not very good at relaxing (especially savasana) !

Favorite Green Monkey class:

This is a difficult question to answer because I have so many favorites! I like teachers who offer a lot of alignment reminders throughout the class.

 

Favorite quote/life motto:

"Life is what happens, when you are busy making other plans."

--- John Lennon

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."

Any other awesome stories or fun facts you think your fellow monkeys would enjoy?

The Mat Crawl was probably the best thing that I did for my practice.  I really feel that experience changed my practice because it forced me to "step out of the box".  I would encourage everyone to try at least one new teacher or class each month.

Thanks for sharing your yogi-experience, Staci!

Yogi of the Month: Ewa Josefsson


EWA
In the month of love Green Monkey has taken the opportunity to cuddle up with this month's Yogi extraordinaire, Ewa Josefsson.
Ewa is a Skanda Yoga Teacher at the South Beach Tree House. She's been practicing yoga for five years and been a loyal member of the Monkey family for the past two.
We share with you all of the love that Ewa has shared with us.

How did you get started?:

My first class was very painful, I remember not being able to do downward facing dog without bending my knees. However I did manage to do a headstand a few classes later - I guess in that pose my stiffness actually paid off!

 

It took me 2.5 years of practicing yoga asana to find my spiritual path and a daily practice. I was holding on to Maya - the veil of illusion - while hustling in New York City's media and fashion industries. But like my favorite quote from the Gita states: 'No obstacle can ever hold one back forever...'. I finally surrendered.

Favorite pose and why:

Handstand, because it teaches me how to fall with grace.

Favorite Green Monkey class:

Allaine Stricklen's Gentle Therapeutics is a wonderful complement to my Skanda practice.

 

Favorite quote/life motto:

No effort on the Yoga path is ever lost, nor can any obstacle ever hold one back forever. Just a little progress on this path can protect one from the greatest fear. -Bhagavad-Gita

Thanks for sharing your yogi-experience, Ewa!
