Heartfelt Consciousness Podcast

Free Community Offering | Mondays | 6:30PM-7:30PM CDT
Laura Bender

Yoga first made an appearance in Laura’s life several years ago and as an avid runner, she heard yoga could play a huge part in improving her form, mental control, breathing, flexibility and balance. Over the last few years, she discovered that it’s so much more than that. While her practice has helped her grow stronger and more flexible, it has taught her the importance of mindfulness and gratitude. Yoga inspires Laura to shine from her heart and open up her soul, to be her most authentic self. Laura completed her 200 hour Vinyasa training with Omnipresent Yoga and has gone on to complete her 300 hour training with My Vinyasa Practice as well as several other programs in Yin, Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness Meditation, Mindfulness Coaching, Aromatherapy and Restorative Yoga. In addition, being a Reiki Master allows her to bring a holistic aspect to her classes that help balance the body and mind. Laura is currently an E-RYT 200, RYT 500, and YACEP with Yoga Alliance.

 

Our latest Heartfelt Consciousness Podcast Episode goes LIVE every Monday.

Laura Bender talks with a variety of individuals from fellow yogis, yoga teachers, specialists, and more to share their knowledge and expertise on challenges many of us face today both in and outside of our yoga practice and teachings. Not to mention, the fun and entertaining connections that can happen along the way in our journey!

Vanisha Weatherspoon

Vanisha is an RYT 500 and native of Killeen, TX. She began her yoga journey when she began taking classes in Austin after making her way there for school/ work. Her love for yoga truly developed when she began law school in Washington, DC. Law students are at heightened risk for alcoholism, drug abuse, anxiety and depression, so she looked to yoga to help her avoid falling victim to one of the former. It was here on her yoga mat where she discovered true happiness and peace, which led her to want to bring this to her law school community, but also others. 

 

Want to learn more about how to integrate music into your classes and personal practice?

Especially when offering this to practitioners, whether in-person or through live stream, there are some points to consider, that Vanisha (RYT500), will be happy to explain and ponder on with you.

Christine Rodriguez

Christine Rodriguez is an Ashtanga yoga teacher, Vinyasa teacher, Vedic astrologer, and social worker. Christine came to the practice of yoga as a rock climber looking for methods of injury prevention. After her first ashtanga yoga class, it completely took over her life – and the rest is history! Christine has traveled to Mysore, India to study ashtanga yoga with Saraswathi Jois and has devoted countless hours to practice and mentorship under teachers in order to learn the art of adjustments.

In addition, she is a certified Vedic Astrologer and completed her Masters in Social Work from the University of Texas in 2020. Christine believes that healing involves the mental, emotional, and physical body – and that yoga has the capacity to tap into all three. It’s an honor to hold space for class and she is deeply humbled by her students.

 

Do you ever wonder how the placement of the stars is influencing you or the world at large?

In this monthly offering, you will be provided with a personalized horoscope for each of the 12 zodiac signs as well as a world overview in order to better plan for the month ahead. Vedic astrology is a profound sister science to yoga – that has been utilized by sages and wise men for thousands of years. The placement of the grahas, or planets, give divine insight into what we can expect in the future.

Join in on the magic and align with the stars to plan your month ahead! Vedic astrology differs from Western astrology. Follow this link to calculate your personal Vedic birth chart. 

The signs to look for are your Ascendant (Asc) and the Moon sign. Vedic astrology is a lunar-based system, therefore these predictions will be made from your moon!

Event Details: This offering is only $10 and is a ZOOM live stream offering. However, you must register in order to receive the link to participate.  The link will be sent 30 minutes prior to the event start time.
