WELCOMing SARAHJOY MARSH
Special Guest Workshop Series
SARAHJOY MARSH, MA, E-RYT 500, certified yoga teacher, yoga therapist, and author, is a vibrant, compassionate catalyst for transformation. Elements3 Yoga is excited to have her return to our community again May 4-6.
While fundamentally informed by the teachings of yoga, Sarahjoy also masterfully integrates her training in Western therapy and mental health, interpersonal counseling, neurobiology, reciprocal muscle inhibition, and kinesiology. She has an unwavering belief in people’s innate goodness and their capacity to re-awaken to their potential.
Last year, Sarahjoy led her signature Trauma-Informed Brain-Sensitive Yoga training program to a group of instructors. This year, she will be offering workshops to both the public as well as an Introductory course in Trauma-Informed Brain-Sensative Yoga to yoga instructors.
Amrita Yoga for All-Levels: Friday May 4th & Sunday May 6th
Amrita yoga is a form of vinyasa yoga with influences from Ayurveda, physical therapy, neuroscience, yoga philosophy and psychology, pranayama, and mindfulness. The amrita yoga style emphasizes the bio-mechanics of alignment, anatomy, kinesiology, and rehabilitative processes. Sarahjoy will be offering two different sessions. Friday's Amrita "Chandra" class will be more nourishing and grounding while Sunday's Amrita "Surya" class will be dynamic and energizing. Cost $40 or purchase both in advance to save $10.
Intro to Trauma-Informed Brain-Sensitive Yoga for Teachers Intensive: May 5th 10:30am-7:30pm
For current yoga instructors who would like to learn more about the topic of trauma sensitivity. We only have space for 10 more to join this session. Day-long intensive is $175.
Sarahjoy Marsh, MA, E-RYT 500, certified yoga teacher, yoga therapist, and author, is a vibrant, compassionate catalyst for transformation. Clear-hearted and sensitive toward those that suffer from addictions – in particular disordered eating patterns and body image issues, and for those living with anxiety, depression, and trauma, Sarahjoy ignites a person’s confidence in themselves as capable of traversing the challenges and joys of awakening from suffering. Through her work with addiction and recovery, as well as her decades of commitment to working with those whose lives have been impacted by marginalization (poverty, prejudice, lack of access to resources such as education, health care, or mental health support), she has created an accessible library of tools that develop the life skills people need to re-create health (both physical and mental); to internalize their sense of worth, belonging, and capacity; and to thrive emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually.
Sarahjoy has a Masters in Counseling and has been training yoga teachers, yoga outreach volunteers, and mental health providers, including clinical psychologists and socials workers, in the tools of yoga therapy for 20 years. She is a student and scholar of yoga with 22 years of professional teaching experience and 25 years of yogic study. From her extensive background, Sarahjoy created “amrita yoga”, a form of vinyasa yoga that integrates Ayurveda, physical therapy, neuroscience, yoga philosophy and psychology, pranayama, and mindfulness.
