Classes with Ray Greenberg
Ray has been a yoga practitioner for over 35 years. An honors graduate of the
University of Pennsylvania, his livelihood has been based on television production,
art publishing and now yoga supply.
Until 1997, Ray only shared his yoga practice with friends
and relatives. Then he started teaching a class in New Paltz and soon after was
offered the opportunity to participate in the inaugural teacher training program
of well known master Sri Yogi Dharma Mittra. Ray recieved his certification and
his Sanskrit name "Yogeshvara
Om", in September of 2000.
In the lineage of Swami Gupta, our main credo is simply, "Be
to Ray " Through love and good intentions, discipline, hard work and faith,
progress is assured."
This open class will give each student an opportunity
to develop her or his own potential using the basic
postures as building blocks for more advanced poses.
Those who are comfortable with the early stage
poses will be encouraged to explore them, while
the more experienced practitioners will be supported
in accomplishment of more advanced variations.
This is also a traditional Raja Yoga class, where the emphasis is on going
within to find the deep well springs of peace and contentment residing there.
Breathing exercises (pranayama) and guided concentration and relaxation exercises
will be included for this purpose.
All classes have a $12.00 drop in fee.
Discount class cards are available for 3 and 6 week commitments.
The 3 class card is good for four weeks and costs $30.00.
The six class card is good for eight weeks and costs $48.00.
|| Open Classes
Multi level classes Open to all students
This class is for open minded students, who enjoy
practicing with practitioners at different levels.
Just as in the Beginner's and Intermediate classes
traditional Raja yoga will be stressed through postures,
breathwork, guided visualizations, concentration
exercises and Vedic theory. However, each class will
be tailored to the group in attendance. Every session
will stress basic practices and use them as building
blocks for the more difficult work. Everyone will
be encouraged to find their own personal edge and
work within it.
From time to time we will discuss the theory and basis for Raja yoga and explore
more esoteric practices. The prime focus of the class is deep relaxation and
rejuvenation, leading to self knowledge and contentment.
Private Sessions are also available at a rate of $50.00 per
hour or $65.00 for 1.5 hours. Travel or group classes incur extra charges.
