Restorative Yoga for the Weekend Warrior

Restorative Yoga for the Weekend Warrior
Event on 2013-06-16 12:00:00
Note:
With Stacey Schwartz , class cards accepted, NO GROUPONS This workshop is designed to teach you how to release muscle tension, balance strength with stretch as well as explore various breathing techniques. Yoga for the Weekend Warrior will help you maximize your body's true potential and keep your body healthy for whatever sport or adventure comes your way. Stacey Pepper Schwartz, RYT 200
Stacey started her career as a professional dancer and choreographer in NYC. A dancer friend introduced her to yoga as a way to increase strength, stamina and flexibility. After a dance ending back injury, Stacey turned to yoga as a way to recover and find peace on and off the mat. Now she can't imagine a day without it.
Stacey was inspired to become a registered yoga teacher after her mother was hospitalized due to complications from multiple sclerosis. Stacey and her mom did yoga in chairs to help her mom regain mobility, manage stress and combat fatigue. This profound experience brought Stacey to the teacher training program at Sacred Rivers where she trained and became a 200RYT. Her love of yoga deepened as well as her belief that yoga is truly for every body.
Stacey's yoga classes focus on the mechanics of movement, alignment, mental awareness, and the balance of effort and ease to feel the power and benefits of each yoga posture. She encourages her students to challenge themselves physically as well as to connect mindfully to their practice.

The Worlds Most Awesome Festival Expands to the East this August 2013 in Bali, Indonesia.

Kuala Lumpur (PRWEB) May 25, 2013

Awesomeness Fest, the experiential invite-only personal growth event that draws the some of the worlds foremost entrepreneurs, visionaries and inspiring leaders to connect, celebrate and push humanity forward, is expanding to the East in magical Bali, Indonesia, August 23-25 this year.

Last years event, held in the Mexican Riviera, sold out with over 1600 people applying for the 250 available positions. To meet the demands of its success, and to maintain the level of intimacy Awesomeness Fest is famous for, the organizers, Mindvalley, have decided to hold two events this year one to be held in the Dominican Republic in November, and the other in Bali bringing Awesomeness Fest to Asia for the very first time.

“As Mindvalley’s goal is to hack cultures and push humanity forward, it’s the perfect time to expand the event to Asia where we want to create a world hub for culture, innovation and technology, says Mindvalley and Awesomeness Fest founder, Vishen Lakhiani. We think the festival and the model of tribe-building that brings together the best and brightest to learn, share, network and collaborate, is the perfect vehicle for helping us meet this goal and helping our attendees to further unleash their potential.”

The 3-day event which has in the past attracted notable speakers such as The Secrets Lisa Nichols, Emmy Award-winning actress Patricia Arquette, musical composer and lyricist Jeff Marx of Avenue Q fame, New York Times best-selling author Gabrielle Bernstein, famed hotelier Chip Conley will be a mix of the whos who of the entrepreneurial, personal growth and celebrity worlds, coming together with the collective ambition to transform themselves and ultimately change the world.

What I love about it is that every year that Ive come [to Awesomeness Fest], Ive met new friends that have become new business partners every-single-year. I would describe Awesomeness Fest as unmatched, unparalleled, unapologetic, and untamed and everything you want, said Lisa Nichols, sought-after speaker, best-selling author and featured teacher in The Secret.

Lisa will be also taking the stage at Bali this year, alongside notable entrepreneurs Roger Hamilton (creator of the Wealth Dynamics Test), Dave Logan (author of the New York Times Bestseller Tribal Leadership), Tiffany Persons (founder of Shine on Sierra Leone and United Nations-honored Woman of the World), Khailee Ng (founder of Groupon Malaysia and SAYS), Amir Ahmad Nasr (co-founder of Mindvalley Arabic and author of My Isl@m: How Fundamentalism Stole My Mind) and of course, Vishen himself. It has also been confirmed that Lisa Nichols will host a complimentary pre-event workshop for Awesomeness Fest East attendees entitled “How to Win in Your Business and Create Long-Term Success”.

Being a not-for-profit event, this years proceeds will go to the X PRIZE Foundation, an educational 501(c)(3) organization, whose mission is to help bring about radical technological and scientific breakthroughs to benefit humanity. In previous years, proceeds have benefitted Patricia Arquettes charity, GiveLove (which helps to improve water sanitization in Haiti), in addition to Shine on Sierra Leone (a non-profit lifting Sierra Leone through sustainable communities, education and health) and the Pachamama Alliance (an organization dedicated to preserving the Amazon Rainforest, its indigenous people and their cultures).

A ticket to Awesomeness Fest East includes three days of connecting with 150 selected entrepreneurs and leaders, learning from the presentations of leading inspirational figures, dream networking opportunities, and attending epic parties and excursions all set in an exotic location.

This years events will take place in the Melia Hotel in Bali, Indonesia from August 23rd to 25th, and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic from November 7th to 10th. For more information on Awesomeness Fest, and to apply for an invitation to attend, visit the official website at
