Everyone’s addicted…to something or someone! When life gets uncomfortable, we numb out to avoid the discomfort of the present moment. Food, shopping, pain pills, pot, sex, gambling, co-dependant relationships….anything ring a bell?!

This six-week series, based on a therapeutic yogic technology called SuperHealth, is a perfect blend of the ancient wisdom of the East with the innovations of the West.

This natural, holistic approach helps you change from within so you can break addictions that block you from reaching your full potential. This program is a path to a healthier, happier life. SuperHealth has been accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and rated in the top 10% of residential programs in the U.S.A.

Amar Atma Kaur uses the sacred teachings of Yogi Bhajan to connect to personal intentions allowing the Kundalini energy to move through the whole chakra system, igniting pure consciousness and deep meditative states of peace, bliss, and connectedness.

8-Week Series with Diane Dunn

Mondays/Wednesdays, 11 am – 12 pm
Sept. 23 – Nov. 11, 2019
Cost: $180 for 8 weeks (16 classes)
To reserve your spot: Phone/text (775) 870-2092 or email: dunndiane2@icloud.com

This 8-week series is for people living with arthritis or similar symptoms of pain and stiffness. It draws from a variety of styles to best address the specific needs of people with arthritis. Dr. Steffany Moonaz, PHD, a leading expert on yoga for arthritis, designed this program while working with researchers and rheumatologists. The program requires you to listen to your body and respond to its needs, which can vary from day to day. It is not just a modification of a yoga class with props; it also combines information about diet, meditation and physical activity to support students with the healing aspects and full benefits of a complete yoga practice. Another goal of this program is to help students move past the point of joint discomfort to get the benefit of a pose and begin to create their own home practice. The course comes with a manual and meets twice a week and has home activities as well as class time.

diane dunnAbout the Instructor: Diane Dunn, RYT200 is a licensed Yoga for Arthritis teacher. It was the information and experience that she got from her own work with yoga and therapy after a knee replacement and her course with Dr. Moonaz that motivated her to share this information with the community. Read more.
