Mantra Lab: mini workshops for a deeper yoga experience

Join us for a very special and rare opportunity to delve deeper into the many aspects and full spectrum of yoga.

Space is limited

Preregistration is required as space is limited, spots in these labs are sure to fill fast. Cancellation policy is firm.

Yoga is more then practicing asana (poses). Without a deeper knowledge and tools it's hard to fully experience why it's such a beneficial, powerful practice. I understand anyone can teach you how to do a pose but is that all you want, is that all you're really hoping to gain by showing up on your mat?

I don't think so and that's why I've created the Mantra Lab. Join us to explore meditation, theory, methodology, subtle energy and so much more!

Mantra Labs will not include a full physical practice but from time to time will explore deeper knowledge and understanding of achieving a particular asana. In these instances it's highly recommended if not required that you attend the 6pm All levels Vinyasa class in order to warm your muscles and prepare your body for a deeper exploration.

I'm super excited for you to join us and explore all that yoga has to offer you!

Namaste,

Marlena

Hello, I am Jacqui Bonwell:  Experienced - 500hr Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT-500),  Level 1 Balanced Athlete ™ Certified coach, Level 1 FMS (Functional Movement Systems) certified, Reiki Master, Yoga Life Coach, Director of the Sacred Seeds Yoga School (RYS-200hr level, RYS-500hr level) in the Boston/New England area and Owner of the Canton Yoga Shala in Canton, MA. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Rhode Island.  I work primarily with Yoga Teachers through my 200hr & 500hr Yoga Teacher Training certification programs. Additionally, I provide Life Coaching to help yoga students deepen their practice and apply the teachings to their everyday lives.  My most important credential and greatest training has been Motherhood.

After graduating from college, I backpacked Europe then headed home. Ibegan a 10 year career in Social Services that took me from Boston neighborhoods to a women and children’s refuge in Ireland. During my social services career, I had the privilege of meeting amazing people who did more than persevere; they transformed. At the same time, I witnessed a darker side of life that felt like sandpaper to the soul.

There are defining moments in life when we wonder if we are in the right place or if we are heading in the right direction. Distance helps us to see things clearly. Yoga provided me with the space I needed to reflect. From my yoga practice, answers came forth.  After ten years of being overworked and overweight, my body had dictated that I had learned how not to live. That is when I said good-bye to my career in social services.

From my first class with Sagarika Ghose and forward, I knew that yoga for me was more than a practice, it was a calling. I completed the Open Doors Teacher Training out of Weymouth, MA. This program not only touched on the teachings of yoga (power vinyasa, hatha & restorative yoga) but included strong energy healing components.  I met a wonderful mentor, Reiki Master & Teacher, Pat Iyer. She helped me to build strong roots right out of the training gate.

At just the right place and time, a major inspiration of mine, Sharon Gannon (Jivamukti Yoga), came into my life. She directed me on the path of genuinely preserving what yoga is and living life to its fullest extent.

I will be forever grateful for the sage teachings of those yogi’s who have gone before me.  I continue to be deeply inspired by my fellow yoga teachers: David Vendetti, Johnny Gillespie, Rolf Gates, Sharon Gannon and Pat Iyer. I have profound respect for an endless list of yogi’s and healers that I have come to know.

My greatest mission in yoga is to direct people back to their original selves – where their greatest source of freedom and strength already exists.

Every day, I am reminded of the importance of connection to spirit.  I see these very teachings in my children: Lola, 6, and Wyatt, 2, and my two children in spirit. My teachers include my husband, my mother, my whole family, friends and yoga students. Through the people put into my life, I know that the divine exists here on earth.
