Equinox Yorkville presents a Shiva Power master class and a Shiva meditation class with Garth Hewitt on Saturday, September 2nd.  Please join us for this special holiday weekend event.  


Renowned teacher, Garth Hewitt, presents two signature classes from his Shiva Yoga style of yoga.  Garth draws on his extensive knowledge and practice of yoga with his teacher’s: Sri Dharma Mittra, Srivatsa Ramaswami, Annie Carpenter, the Patthabi Jois family, Dr. Larry Payne, Dr. Christopher Chapple and Jill Miller, as well as over 15 years of teaching experience. 

Shiva Power Master Class (2hrs) 11am - 1pm
Setting intentions and practicing gratitude, students move through a challenging and balanced flow with an emphasis on concentration and surrendering into the fire, in order to achieve a state of balance, letting go of the attachment to the ego, quieting the mind, and working towards Self-realization.  This class will contain advanced variations as well as modifications for beginners and will conclude with an extended final rest and a seated meditation practice. 

Shiva Meditation class: (1hr) 1:30pm - 2:30pm
This class takes students on a journey into stillness.  The class begins with seated pranayama techniques.  Students use bandhas, mudras, and specific breathing techniques to work with energy and find balance.  Students are then led through a guided yoga nidra meditation practice, in order to let go of the outer world and the body and turn inward.  This class culminates with seated concentration and meditation techniques designed to quiet the mind and lead to a state of Samadhi, the experience of the true nature of the Self.
