Drop in For Yoga Teacher Training Individual Classes

If you can’t join us for the whole yoga teacher training/intensive October 5-29, you still can learn, breathe, meditate and practice! Please consider participating in the morning classes for a special workshop price of $45 from 9-11:45 or $60 from 8-11:45, or 3 punches for 9-11:45, or 1 punch for 8-9.

What is pranayama? One of the eight limbs of yoga, pranayama is a specific, intentionally induced pattern of breath control and breathwork that sharpens concentration and brings inner balance. Pranayama is one of the ways that you arrive at the doorway of meditation.

“Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or as an end in itself.”

In these pranayama/meditation classes Angela or Adi will lead you through these powerful and enriching practices.

Start a pranayama and meditation practice and experience the benefits of a more internal meditative practice. Or, challenge yourself with a longer asana practice to increase stamina and strength.

Top Three Reasons Why Yoga is So Important During Hectic and Stressful Times

Our summer in Jackson Hole is so busy and hectic sometimes. Family and friends come to town to visit; the parks are bustling; traffic on the roads is heavier than usual; and there is always something going on! This is exactly when you need yoga. Here are the top three reasons why yoga is so important during hectic and stressful times.

  1. Yoga calms our nervous system helping us to deal more skillfully with stress. It also calms our mind giving us the opportunity to observe what is going on within and around us with discriminating wisdom and awareness.
  2. It is through intelligent skillful yoga practice that we have the opportunity and tools to transform old patterns of attitude and behavior that no longer serve us.
  3. As we use the yoga practice as a vehicle to check in, rather than check out, we receive endless gifts from the process and experience of yoga.

Next time you find yourself stressed out or keeping a hectic pace, make an appointment with your mat (even if briefly), and keep it!

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 two birds 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.
Buy a Pong iPhone Case in Jackson Hole at the Shala Boutique
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.
