In The Sharp Solution, Dr. Heidi Hanna discusses a brain-based approach to realistic, sustainable energy management that supports a healthier brain, and as a result a healthier, happier body. By engaging the brain, we can strategically re-wire how we operate, creating more energy and improving productivity while simultaneously reducing stress. As a result, we become more focused and productive, flexible and resilient, and able to sustain higher levels of health and performance over time. These critical aspects of "cognitive fitness"—mental strength, flexibility, and endurance—allow us to function at our best and enjoy life to the fullest.
This class is for anyone who has experienced trauma. We will use a mind-body approach that draws on imagery, guided meditation, movement and positive cognitive psychology to help people experiencing trauma to take the necessary steps to safely reach a state of relaxed, focused awareness so that the body's nervous system is more receptive to change and so that old wounds (physical and emotional) can heal more readily.
Psychologist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frank said, "In between stimulus, and response there is a space, in that space lies our power to choose our response lies our growth and our freedom." There are many moments in our lives where we drop into a space of clarity, tap into what really matters and get in touch with the wisdom that lies inside. This is the Now Effect. This presentation will show us how we can recognize these "choice points" more often and train our minds in such a way that these moments begin drop in in on us more often and eventually not only strengthen our brains, but change the way we think before we think. This session talks about how we can skillfully weave this into our daily lives to recognize unhealthy habits, prime the mind for good, transform difficult emotions, and get connected.

Hemalayaa teaches a unique combination of yoga and Indian dance in Los Angeles and travels the globe transforming lives through these practices. As a yogini, dancer and fitness educator, Hemalayaa has a natural gift for bringing out the joy and the dancer in everyone. The daughter of Indian parents, Hema's upbringing taught her that dance was important to health and well-being, and her yoga training began at home at an early age. Her first teacher was her father. She went on to study yoga, philosophy, and meditation. A life devoted to yoga and dance animates Hemalayaa's playful spirit. Laughter, her own and that of her students, is the trademark sound of her classes. Hema loves turning her students on to the vibrant styles of Indian dance, which is revolutionizing conscious movement. She is the creator and author of numerous health and fitness DVDs and has been featured in publications such as Yoga Journal, Body & Soul, Fit Yoga, The New York Times and LA Yoga Magazine among others. When she's not shimmying with Ellen Degeneres on her talk show, strutting her stuff with the ladies of the Today show or leading workshops and retreats around the world, Hemalayaa is most likely to be found in her kitchen whipping up some healthy, organic food, riding her bike around Los Angeles, spending time with friends and just generally enjoying life.
Silica is an ex-elite runner/triathlete/martial artist (and Cirque duSoleil wanna-be)who loves that yoga has been her primary practice for the past three years. Although she enjoys challenging experienced yogis, her greatest joy is in introducing beginners and ‘non-yogis’ to the internal, healing side of yoga and encouraging them to discover a practice that is not so much about whether your foot ends up behind your head as it is about how much joy, peace, and vitality your practice brings you. Silica is the frequently bemused mother of two delightful daughters, and enjoys writing, painting, and singing.
