Do you ever find yourself torn between wanting to take a Red or Green, but at the same time wanting to hit that 4:30PM Yin on Saturdays? Or maybe you're unsure what exactly is the difference between a Red, a Green, or a Blue. If this sounds like you, fear not! We have a workshop for you!
In this two hour workshop, Francesca and Bobby will lead you through a tour of the classes offered at Purple Yoga. Throughout the night, you'll practice your way through a mini-glimpse into a Blue, Green, and Red class, with a Yin practice to finish. In true Purple Yoga style, this will be an all levels workshop open to anyone--with additional options and challenges for those seeking more or less.
About the Instructors:
Francesca graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 2009 with a Bachelors in Communications. She decided that life behind a desk wasn't meant for her and pursued a career in physical fitness. In 2010 she became a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Francesca has been active her whole life playing softball, weight training and running. She discovered yoga in 2012 when she injured her knee. At first yoga was mostly for rehab but she fell in love with how it made her feel. She realized she was beginning to think more clearly and found herself more open to new experiences. In February 2015 she began teacher training at Purple Yoga and it changed her life. She knew that this was the path she was meant to take. As an instructor at Purple she hopes to help as many people as she can deepen their practice by becoming more aware of their body and breath.
Bobby fell into yoga through the search to find some sort of physical exercise to achieve a level of fitness, that wasn't lifting weights or running. Shortly after taking his first class at a 24 Hour Fitness in his hometown, Bobby found himself inspired by the mix of mental focus and physicality presented in the beauty of each movement. As one of Purple Yoga's youngest instructors, Bobby completed his Teacher Training as a scholarship recipient in Spring 2015 and hasn't slowed down since. He teaches a creative and challenging flow with upbeat music to match, drawing inspiration from every aspect of body movement and never being afraid to try something new. When he's not teaching, you'll most likely find Bobby practicing in or working behind the front desk of the Long Beach studio, finishing up his last semester at Cal State Long Beach, or dancing the night away at the nearest music festival.
Body Sculpt: Hypnosis to Design Your Physique
withJannaColaco at Purple Yoga Fullerton
Sat, May 14, 2016 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our Spring series hypnosis workshops get you beach-ready in a hurry and keep you that way!
May's workshop follows the Law of Attraction… “Where your mind goes, the body follows!"
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Is it positive or negative? Do you focus on the problem areas? When you think about your body, what are your thoughts? Do you tell yourself how fat, flabby, or out of shape you are? Do you believe that criticism is motivation? Are you afraid to be kind to yourself for fear you’ll over-indulge? Do you chronically complain about your belly, your thighs, your butt? Every subject is really two subjects, with what is wanted on one end, and what is not wanted on the other. When we focus on what we don’t want, we’ll get more of it. Focusing on the positive is a habit most of us still need to cultivate. That’s where hypnosis can help.
The first portion of the workshop will answer questions and get you clear on exactly what type of body improvements you want to create. Current habitual thinking patterns will be uncovered and re-designed. We will have multiple group processes including EFT (tapping), NLP (neurolinguistic programming) and hypnosis demonstrations. We will finish with extended group imagery hypnosis that will launch you forward on your journey to your most excellent self.
You will need comfortable clothing. This will be a lecture format, but you might bring a yoga mat or cushion for sitting or lying down on the floor. No experience necessary… bring a friend or loved one!
