Yoga by Donation For a Good Cause, Too

Yoga by Donation in Jackson Hole to Benefit JHCCC
Also, 10% of all proceeds of the yoga classes during July will benefit the Jackson Hole Community Counseling Center. If you don’t know much about the Counseling Center, I highly recommend you look into what they offer to our Jackson Hole community. They make counseling affordable to everyone! No one is ever turned away, and the therapists there have dedicated their lives to helping people from all walks of life. See you in yoga class!

Pong Protective iPhone Cases in the Shala Boutique

We just Got Our Pong iPhone Cases in The Shala Boutique

Vishnu the Protector - Pong iPhone Case Protects You
We’re excited to announce that we just received Pong iPhone Cases in the Teton Yoga Shala Boutique. A Pong case is the world’s first intelligent smartphone case that pairs with your device to redirect wireless energy for optimized protection and performance.

Introduced by U.S. company Pong Research, the Pong case “feeds a bird with one seed” since it’s both a protective case for your iPhone and protective for you by redirecting radiation away from you. It works by its built-in, golden-hued antenna, which is paired with the smartphone’s antenna to form a small magnetic field, which draws the phone’s power away from the front of the phone (near your head) and redirects it backward. According to Pong, its smartphone and tablet cases can reduce the amount of radiation that we come into contact with while strengthening our cell signal.

Protecting Yourself From Wireless Energy is Part of Self Care

Last night in yoga class, Heather reminded us that “yoga is also self care.” As part of your self care, why not protect yourself and your family from potentially harmful wireless energy with a protective iPhone Case?

We first learned about the Pong Cases at a talk by integrative oncologist Dr. Mitchell Gaynor about preventing cancer. The talk was sponsored by Jackson Hole nonprofit the Environmental Health Trust, which provides cutting-edge research and education about cellphones and other environmental health hazards and promotes constructive policies locally, nationally and internationally. Here’s a printable brochure with some precautions about cell phones and health.

All mobile devices use radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic waves to communicate. The devices contain antennas to transmit and receive wireless signals. Unlike traditional cases, the Pong case is embedded with a custom-engineered antenna system that passively interacts with your device when you snap it on. Specifically, copper elements plated in gold, yet thinner than a human hair, are precisely engineered in size, shape and location, to achieve optimum coupling with the mobile device’s own antenna. Pong’s built-in antenna technology reshapes the electromagnetic field pattern of your device’s transmitted signal and directs wireless energy away from you while optimizing your device’s outbound signal.

Add the Pong Case to your smartphone to strengthen your signal, increase your range, and greatly reduce your exposure to potentially harmful wireless energy.

The Pong iPhone Case is Stylish by Design

Protective case maker Pong Research collaborated with top design firm IDEO to redesign the stylish yet sound radiation-deflecting phone and tablet cases. IDEO created a latticed back that reveals a hint of gold metal, which showcases the technology that protects users from the electromagnetic radiation our cellular and wireless devices emit.

Pong makes cases for many Samsung smartphones and a couple Android phones. It also makes cases, which also act as stands for Apple iPad and iPad mini. We can order any of these if you’d like. Just email us at info@tetonyoga.com.

About Master Yoga Teacher Eddie Modestini:

Eddie has been doing yoga since July of 1983. His first teacher was a woman from the San Francisco bay area named Gayna Uransky. Realizing that he had found his path, he lost no time in jumping in with both feet.

His first introduction to yoga was Iyengar Yoga and he became a certified teacher in a short time. He was part of the first batch of teachers certified on the East Coast. Many of those in his group have gone on to become senior Iyengar teachers. At the time it was very hard to get certified.

Today, Eddie Modestini is what is known as a teacher’s teacher. He has been a yogi since 1983 and has been teaching for that long as well. Eddie has been certified in Iyengar yoga and spent many years studying with Pattabhi Jois, receiving a blessing to teach Ashtanga yoga. He is well versed in both systems and has an amazing eye and holds the ability to read students’ bodies and is a master of yoga therapy. “Through the experience of watching yoga heal me, I know that it has the capacity to heal the masses.”

“The treasure is buried beneath your house. Tear down your house to reveal the treasure.” –Eddie Modestini

Maharishi Patanjali describes the purpose of life as bhoga, evolution through experience, and apavarga, involution to liberation. He extols that our progress is determined by the depth of our interest, and that the process and the experience of Yoga as Samadhi are one in the same.

Spring Kundalini Yoga Series

New Kundalini Yoga Series for Spring Begins Sunday, March 9th

Kundalini Yoga Series
A new Kundalini, meditation, and yoga series taught by Connie Wieneke will begin on March 9th and runs through April 27th every Sunday.

This will be an all-over kundalini, kriya, meditation practice. We will work through the chakras, and tune the body, mind and spirit for the returning sun and spring.

As usual, one of the intentional benefits of this meditation and yoga series will be a balanced endocrine system. We are only as healthy and joyful as our glands. Open your heart and mind to opportunity.

Our kriya set will wake up the endocrine system and balance the energy centers in your body. “Love every breath that comes, and love all things, known and unknown.” You may be surprised by what comes to you.

As Gurarattan Kaur Khalsa writes: “Start realizing that opportunities and prosperity can come in different forms than you have previously imagined. Believe that you deserve prosperity.”

And a good dose of laughter and fun in our practice goes a long way toward that state of spirit.
