Conscious Connected Breathwork is a simple, gentle yet powerful conscious breathing technique.
It brings into awareness not only our unconsciously held beliefs and emotions, but also the relationships we have with our bodies, ourselves, our intimates and our world.
When we consciously breathe with this awareness, we make it possible to resolve, integrate and heal previously unresolved issues within ourselves. This frees up energy, bringing greater aliveness and joy. It can allow us to move towards fulfillment of our potential as human beings.
It is a powerful healing method which offers you an experience of freedom and mastery in your life.
Conscious Connected Breathwork brings expanded awareness on all levels: physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual.
The breath is a sublime healer. It is the umbilical cord to the Divine. By using a variety of smoothly connected breaths; energy which may be called prana, chi, ki, or the life force is taken into the body where it dissolves and brings up anything that is unlike itself. When this takes place, blockages that have been holding us back at the psychological, spiritual, or cellular source surface and a deep inner transformation occurs.
Daniel is a trained certified conscious connected Breathwork instructor.
Cost: $35 per class.

Lauren Taylor has been taking the boot camp class since 2014. Here's what she says about her experience:
I never thought that I would say that waking up at 5:30 am twice a week is one of the things I look forward to the most in my life. But after two years of attending Evergreen’s boot camp, I know that it’s one of the best decisions I have made.
This yoga class is such an important contributor to my mental and physical well being. This yoga meets me exactly where I am and pushes me to learn, grow, and try new things at just the right pace.
The yoga I practice at Evergreen makes me return to myself again and again—and too few things allow us to do that these days. So I am grateful.
Here's what Kevin Barton says:
I began yoga as a reluctant participant. My wife wanted me to join her at 5:45AM for Yoga Boot-Camp. At first I thought she was crazy, not only because of the time of morning, but also because I wasn’t sure about practicing yoga. After a couple months of encouragement, I finally acquiesced, and I’m very glad I did. Evergreen Yoga welcomes news students with true warmth. Leah is an incredible and patient instructor who not only manages to bring smiles to the faces of her students at 5:45 AM, but also makes everyone feel welcome whether they are a seasoned yoga practitioner or a sometimes clumsy thirty-something who almost had to be dragged to his first class. In the year I’ve been practicing, my flexibility has greatly increased, and I love the positivity I receive as a participant in Leah’s classes. I travel quite a bit for work and cringe when I know I’m going to miss a class. I would encourage anyone who has an interest to try a class at Evergreen Yoga. You’ll be glad you did.
Here's what Susannah Barton says:
I decided to try the yoga boot camp at Evergreen Yoga in April 2015 after struggling for nearly a year with a back injury, which culminated in 12 weeks of physical therapy. The physical therapy helped my back, but I knew there was still a lot of work to be done, and I figured yoga was a great place to get me back to good back health. But, I was really nervous. The back injury really scared me, and I was afraid that I might injure it again if I wasn’t careful. So on day one, I talked to Leah about my concerns and my issues, and I immediately knew that she was going to work with me to heal myself. I am completely comfortable with Leah and I know that her thoughtful instruction keeps me safe, while also challenging me every class. I am amazed at how I have progressed in a year and a half. I look forward to our 5:45 a.m. classes twice a week – as crazy as that sounds! I have built both physical strength, as well as mental strength in this class. I am more confident in what my body can do, and I am excited as I continue to build more strength and flexibility with each session.
Leah is an incredibly comforting and gentle instructor…but don’t let her warmth fool you, she’ll challenge you! I am thankful for Leah’s guidance and challenging instruction, and I encourage folks to check out Evergreen Yoga and maybe even boot camp!
