Rest begins where restlessness ends... Join us for our monthly
evening of Yingong meditation with Danielle Godfrey and Linda G immediately after
the regular 5:15 all level yoga class. This month’s workshop’s emphasis is on
yoga nidra, the sleep of the yogi. This event is open to kids of all ages if they can lie
quietly for the duration of the workshop. Please don’t forget to sign up at the front desk!
What is Yingong Meditation?
It's a combination of Yin Yoga and a Gong Bath.
Yin Yoga is not restorative yoga, but works the deeper connective tissue, like the bones, ligaments and joints.
Postures are held from 1 minute to 5 minutes and target the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine to release stress.
A gong/crystal bowl boath is sound therapy for your body. It creates a deep relaxation within your own body to free you from the flood of
thoughts that bombard you constantly. It stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning, clears the nerve endings and
regenerates the parasympathetic system. During the sound bath the parasympathetic system sends messages to all your organs to 'RELAX'.
What is Yangong Meditation?
It is Jin Dong, vibrational therapy from Korea. This 3-part workshop enables you to explore a combination of an ancient yogic tradition with live drumming,
Qi energy activation with gong and Yoga Nidra with crystal bowls. Jin Dong activates the body's energy system in order to open the meridians so energy can flow freely.
After a short savasana, you will begin to collect and free your qi energy, moving it so that inner balance between yin and yang can be restored. You will awaken and experience
in your being the healing power of your energy body and prepare the mind for the deep meditative state of Yoga Nidra. A certified Jin Dong healer,
Heike traveled to Korea to study witht he masters of this form of yoga.
HealthFair is partnering with Scottsdale Healthcare to provide communities with mobile health screenings for heart attack, stroke, and aneurysm on a coach that is about the size of a Blood Mobile.
There is a charge for the screenings, but it is at an extremely reduced rate. Most insurance companies do not allow their clients to get these screenings done unless they have the signs or symptoms of these diseases and all too often you do not have the signs until it is already too late. If you were to receive these same tests in a hospital without insurance, it would cost upwards of $2,300. They are trying to promote awareness as well as provide our services at an affordable rate with the health insurance crisis throughout the nation.
6 tests- Heart Disease, Stroke & Aneurysm
Prevention Package for $179
or 5 Year Disease Risk & Lipid Panel for $99
or Combine Both Packages, Get $20 OFF!
The next screening is tba.

KATHY EVENSON-HOWARD, Group Fitness Director
ACE, CPR, Cycling, Personal Trainer
Kathy entered the fitness field over 40 years ago (and has been at La Camarilla for almost 30) because of her
own personal FAT fight (she weighed 145 by age 11 and hit all time high of 210 by age 22). She found helping
others commit to nutrition and fitness as a lifestyle very rewarding and lives by the phrase "you teach
best what you most need to learn". She was instrumental in developing the small group training program
at La Camarilla and she continues to stay current on all fitness and nutritional trends to share with her clients.
She firmly believes that it is important to "Share a Lifestyle of Health and Fitness with Friends" -
encouraging everyone she meets to make it some part of their life every day.
In her spare time, she enjoys the company of her husband Bob, along with friends, at movies, dinners, plays, hiking,
tennis, or dancing. Together they have 3 boys, 5 grandchiildren and have recently been blessed witht the addition of
one great-granddaughter (which, of course, helps make staying healthy and fit mandatory). Look forward to every single day!!
Contact Kathy at 480.998.3388 or email@example.com.
Iskra Balchev is originally from Bulgaria where she was a Silver Medalist in the 1980 Moscow Olympics as well as having competed in four other Olympic Games in rowing.
Now a U.S. citizen and a full time massage therapist here at La Camarilla, she still competes in sanctioned world championships of the International
Federation of Rowing (FISA).
Iskra still trains heavily on our Concept 2 rowing machines in the weight room. These are the #1 rowing machines for rowing competitors. In fact Iskra has won a major competition, the 2000 Boston World Championships of Indoor Rowing, on the Concept 2 rower.
This is just one of the many gold medals she’s earned in international competition over the last 30 years. With all of her accomplishments, Iskra has had so many members and friends ask her about rowing that she is now making herself available for private training at La Camarilla.
Iskra has a B.S. degree in Physical Science, Massage Therapy license and is an Internationally Certified Rowing Coach. With this world of knowledge and technical expertise, we are thrilled to have her on our training staff of true professionals.
