PRICING SCHEDULE

Meditation


This class is taught by:

Christian Reid

Bio: Yoga found Christian in 2009 when his mom, a yoga instructor, invited him to attend her class. He was challenged to explore parts of his body that had never been opened, and was surprised to find release from old emotional and psychological baggage that he was not even aware of carrying. This discovery of the inseparable nature of mind, body and spirit led Christian to delve deeper into the practice of yoga with the intention to bring balance to his whole being. As he eagerly practiced all styles of yoga that he encountered, a sense of steadiness and ease arose in his mind and body, and the stresses of everyday life became less engrossing and more manageable. As yoga led Christian to practice self-study more intimately, he was able to articulate his deepest intention of reducing suffering in the world. Inspired by his mom’s work as an instructor and the easing of his own suffering through practice, he knew that one day he too would love to share the gift of yoga with his community through teaching.
In the Fall of 2015, he completed Yoga Tribe's 200-hour Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training where he first encountered the practice of Sound Meditation. This powerfully transformative experience inspired him to study privately with Gong Master and Sound Meditation Practitioner Giselle Abadie to deepen his understanding of this practice and learn the art of playing gongs, singing bowls, drums and other instruments. Since then his interest in Sound Meditation has blossomed into a burning passion, and he has been blessed to share this ancient yet newly re-emerging practice at yoga and meditation studios across Orange County, as well as in private sessions, treatment centers, and on retreats.
Christian’s love for all forms of yoga has inspired him to pursue further education with Vinyasa Flow Mentorship Program led by Shannon Kassoff E-RYT 500, Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Melissa Christensen E-RYT 500, and Teaching Yoga for Recovery led by Alysa Osvog E-RYT 500. His thirst for knowledge and desire to share this transformative practice with the world motivates him to continue learning on the mat, through personal study and more training.
 
Teaching Style: (Sound Meditation) Christian guides students through breath work exploration, gentle movement, and guided imagery to prepare students to open and receive the benefits of the sound meditation. He then guides participants deep into meditation using symphonic and planetary-tuned gongs, Tibetan and crystal singing bowls, drums, and chimes, while chanting mantras in harmony with the instruments. During this profoundly transformative practice, Christian holds space for inner journeying in a way that supports gentle transitions into and out of deeper levels of consciousness.
 
3 Things I would put in a time capsule: 
1) My first singing bowl, given to me by my mom, teacher and friend
2) My favorite book the Tao Te Ching
3) My lavender eye pillow

DJ Arnold

Bio: DJ was drawn to yoga as a way to deepen the connection between body and mind on and off the mat. As an attorney, DJ found the calm and mindfulness cultivated in his practice could be carried into the courtroom to defuse stressful situations. As a yogi, DJ found that his attention to detail and precision allowed the practice to become more grounded and technical. DJ completed his 200 and 300 hour
certifications with Fluid Yoga in Boston, Massachusetts and developed a personal practice and teaching method informed by many different styles of yoga. DJ co-founded and sits on the board of bodhi & mind
yoga, a Boston-based non-profit organization that provides yoga and meditation to people in cancer treatment and recovery.
When he is not teaching yoga or being a lawyer, DJ can be found walking Newport Back Bay with his dog, surfing, rock climbing, reading, or restoring old cars.
 
Teaching Style: DJ’s classes incorporate a fun, mindful flow designed to allow graceful intuitive movement while providing opportunities to develop specific techniques and movements to open the body and make the practice more accessible. Expect each class to explore breathing and meditation techniques in conjunction with the physical asana practice. DJ teaches vinyasa flow, restorative, yin, vipassana-inspired meditation and yoga nidra. DJ often uses contemporary music to help reinforce the atmosphere and pace of his classes.
 
3 Things I would put in a time capsule: A hoodie; My playlists and podcasts; The Game of Thrones book series (hopefully by then it’s complete!).

Description: Meditation is a powerful tool you can use to shift your energy and tune into your true essence. You'll gain clarity and a sense of calming peace that results in happiness. In this class, you are taught techniques to calm and quiet the incessant chatter of the mind and re-direct your energy to a place of stillness. The instructor will allow time for questions, discussion, and mentorship to help students hone their practice. Meditation can change your life as it helps to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It is practiced in a cool room and is highly recommended for all levels. This class is a combo class with a light asana practice before the meditation. Movement will be used to set your body up to go deeper into the meditation practice.
