Genevera

Genevera studied in an eight-month 200-hour teacher training program with Frances Murchison that focused on mindfulness and the eight limbs of yoga. What began as a way to find reprieve from the busy word turned into a toolbox for living well within the world.

Genevera believes that one’s true essence is lighthearted and loving. As such, practitioners in her class can expect playful sequencing and dialogue. Genevera invites self-inquiry and exploration in her classes. And she gives opportunities for students to cultivate the wisdom to know the difference between effort and ease. Genevera believes you are your own best teacher, and as your guide, she will offer options, allowing you to choose your own path within the practice. Moreover, Genevera sees yoga as a reflection: how we practice on our mats is how we live our lives. To transfer the teachings on the mat into everyday life, Genevera offers mindfulness and meditation techniques in her classes. Genevera invites you to come fill your cup and learn new tools for living well and spreading peace in the world!



Genevera instructs the following:
  • Prana Pump | Open
  • Prana Pump is a fun and energetic combination of yoga asana and HIIT (high intensity interval training). With the help of an upbeat playlist and use of props such as sandbags, weights, and bolsters, this class is built to make you sweat, build strength, and rev up your heart-rate. Prana Pump will increase vital life force energy while you find empowerment to meet your edge. You'll be amazed at what your body can do! 
    This class is open to all levels.

  • Basic Yoga | Basic
  • Basic Yoga introduces the foundations of a vinyasa yoga (movement and breath) at a slow, mindful pace. In this class, practitioners can expect to unite movement and breath while learning the foundational concepts of a yoga practice. All levels are welcome, as there will be modifications, options and specific alignment cues given throughout the class that appeal to beginners and those refining the basics.

    Level: Basic


  • Warm Morning Yin | Basic
  • Morning Yin is the perfect slow-paced "stretch out" post a morning high-intensity run, bootcamp, or workout. An active lifestyle can take a toll on the body, specifically the areas of the hips, legs, and knees. This practice is designed to nourish the joints, tendons, ligaments, and fascia of the hips, legs, and back. Yin reminds us all to slow down and stretch out, allowing us to move mindfully from pose to pose with intention, increase flexibility, and helps reduce risk of chronic injury. Yin yoga helps to loosen energy blockages and therefore increase pranic flow through the body while aiding in better organ function and calms the nervous system. It is the YIN to the active YANG lifestyle!
     
    Postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes with the support of yoga props. This class is heated to 85-95 degrees.
     
    Please inform instructor if you are dealing with injury. With the nature of the class, Yin Yoga may be unsafe for certain injuries.

  • Yin & Yang Yoga | Open
  • Yin & Yang Yoga is equal parts movement and stillness. The yang portion of class focuses on movement and building heat through a continuous, steady flow of postures in Sun Salutations. Once the body is warm, the yin section of class focuses holding deep stretches to surrender tight muscles and connective tissue. The combination of yin and yang yoga creates a harmonious and balanced mind-body connection leaving you relaxed and centered.

    Yin postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes with the support of yoga props. Please inform instructor if you are dealing with injury. With the nature of the class, Yin Yoga may be unsafe for certain injuries.
     
    Level: Open

  • Gentle Yoga | Basic
  • Gentle Yoga is a nurturing class that emphasizes self-care and mobility in the muscles and joints, while building strength and flexibility without the vigorous components of other yoga classes. Because this class has limited weight bearing in the hands and heavy prop usage, Gentle Yoga is suitable for all levels, including beginners. Students can expect to experience a well-rounded practice with time for questions and discussion. Even if you have an established practice, Gentle Yoga is a perfect time to move without intensity while refining your practice.

    Level: Basic


  • Yin Yoga | Basic
  • Yin yoga is a slow paced practice that focuses on the breath while surrendering, yielding, and unraveling the connective tissues in the body through long, passive holds. Yin yoga is said to loosen energy blockages and therefore increase pranic flow through the body while aiding in better organ function, increased flexibility, and calms the nervous system. Postures are generally held for 3-5 minutes or more, stimulating the tendons, ligaments, cartilage and joints that normally are not reached in a more active style of asana practice.

    Mandalas & Manifestations
    Yin Yoga & Intention Setting Workshop
    w/ Genevera Miller

    Carl Jung says, “Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside dreams. Who looks inside awakens.”
     
    Gather New Years Day to learn skills for setting high-vibrational, healthy intentions for 2019 in a way that they can truly manifest in your life. This inspiring workshop will consists of three sections.
     
    Part one will included a guided focus on moving awareness inward towards one's highest Self with a 60 minute Mandala inspired Yin Yoga practice. In Sanskrit, Mandala means circle and represents the Universe and the ways we are all connected. Mandalas are said to be healing aids that transform ordinary minds into enlightened ones through focus and receptivity. In our Yin practice we will ease tension, relax our minds, and lift our awareness to a higher level. Once in a high vibrational state, we can receive insight from the Universe and focus on manifesting.
     
    In part two of this workshop, each participant will be given a notebook for setting intentions. We will set our imaginations free creating mini vision boards on the cover of our notebooks. Magazines will be provided but feel free to bring your own artwork or inspiration. This will allow the mind to become playful, further increasing vibrations and allowing for intuition to be turned on. During this time no desire is too big. If you believe it can happen it can.
     
    To close and bring everything together, Genevera will teach the steps for writing out intentions using the intelligence of the Self for clarity about what is truly important. Now, energy can be focused skillfully to achieve whatever your heart truly desires. There will be time for sharing inquiries and connecting with eachother as a community throughout this workshop. Bring your friends or make new ones. All ages are welcome.
