When We Sparkle: A Journey to Vulnerability and Healing
June 29th, 2019
Saturday, June 29th 1-4
bodē nyc Upper East Side
Sam Given andYarrow Bucans are excited to team up to bring you the workshop, “When We Sparkle: A Journey to Vulnerability and Healing.” Having both struggled with addiction, OCD, and becoming vulnerable enough to heal their trauma, Sam and Yarrow seek to help others to shed addictive behaviors and embrace vulnerability as their greatest strength, one that will assist in connecting to one’s self and to others. Vulnerability is the key to authentic connection. It is the birthplace of creativity, joy, and love. We all develop maladaptive addictive behaviors as a way to create the illusion of safety. Through this workshop the aim is to shed these behaviors so that authentic connection and joy may be felt and experienced, safely.
This workshop will include:
Vinyasa flow with deep backbends to open the heart
With this workshop, Sam and Yarrow hope participants will find confidence in vocalizing their fears, dreams and goals. What we can’t do alone, we can do together.
Yarrow Bucans is an NYC based psychotherapist, healer, yoga and meditation teacher, and writer. She received her MA in psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, and has been engaged in the healing arts for over fifteen years.
Having spent years in a battlefield with her own mind, heart, and soul, Yarrow became a devoted student of psychology, yoga, meditation, trauma, addiction, and vulnerability. Through years of intense emotional and spiritual work, and with the help of a light heart and humor, Yarrow has healed her obsessive-compulsive disorder, overcome addictive behaviors, and eradicated her anxiety. Most importantly, she has opened her heart and discovered who she is. These tools have allowed her to connect more deeply to herself and to others.
Yarrow teaches public and private yoga classes, provides reiki healing sessions and has a budding psychotherapy practice. To learn more about Yarrow, her offerings, or to see her schedule go to www.yarrowbucans.com.
Sam Given, primarily a working actor/occasional drag queen chanteuse (BA in Communications; UCLA), is drawn to helping others find healing through creativity and community.
Sam is very candid about his struggles with addiction/trauma. Sober from alcohol/drugs for almost 8 years, he continually works a program of recovery/spirituality. A consistent yoga practice, honesty, a little bravery and an ounce of willingness have set him in the right direction.

At bodē nyc™ we strongly believe that every person who starts their practice with us should feel as comfortable as possible. We understand that as a first-timer you may feel apprehensive and not know what to expect. This is completely normal. It is with this in mind, that we have developed a comprehensive Private Class program that caters to every level and every body, including more advanced students, or those wanting to dig deeper into an existing practice.
For New Yogis
This private is designed for anyone who has never tried yoga or Hot Yoga before.
Our experienced teachers will give you a general understanding of the benefits of yoga and walk you through the Bikram Method series of postures. The instructor will address any individual concerns you may have whether it be due to a physical limitation from injury or concerns about the heat in the room. Based on your personal needs, you will be given modifications of postures (if needed) as well as tips on how to handle the heat in the regular group class.
The New Yogi private session will only be moderately heated in order for you to be comfortable and adapt to the feeling of the heat while working through the postures. After you have attended one New Yogi private session you will most likely be ready to attend a regular class. However, based on your personal needs, you and your instructor may decide that another private session could be beneficial.
Instructors available (or ask us to recommend someone in the contact form): Blayne, Eddie, Omri, Olivia, John Mabry, Sandra, Lesley, Maura, Pamela, Maja, Regina, Yarrow, Yanina, Kyla, Janet, Peni, Christopher, Kiara, Dionne P, Mark, Corrine, Mary, Dan, Dionne M, Kathryn, Emily V, John Mabry, Riji, Debbie, Jen, Donna
Grow Your Practice
This private is recommended for yogis who have been practicing for a while and feel they might be doing some postures incorrectly or that they’re not getting the full benefits of a particular pose. Our teachers do their best to give individual and group corrections, however, it will never be the same as a one-on-one session where you have the ability to address all of your concerns. You may also need certain modifications that are specific your own body.
In group classes the direction from the teacher is more on a general level and by practicing regularly you will in time understand how to do all the poses properly. However, in just one private session you will reduce that time and make quicker progress. With more confidence in your ability to perform the postures correctly, you will be that much closer to experiencing and enjoying the true benefits of yoga such as the meditative benefits.
Instructors available (or ask us to recommend someone in the contact form): Blayne, Eddie, Omri, Olivia, John Mabry, Peni, Sandra, Joseph, Lesley, Maura, Pamela, Maja, Regina, Yarrow, Yanina, Kyla, Christopher, Kiara, Dionne P, Mark, Corrine, Mary, Dan, Dionne M, Kathryn, Emily V, Riji, Blayne, Debbie, Jen, Donna
This private is for clients who have a very strong understanding of the postures and are looking to bring their practice to a more advanced level. You will be instructed by one of our more senior teachers or yoga champions who can teach you how to prepare for some of the advanced postures in the series. After your session you will be able to work on some of the advanced postures in class that will satisfy your desire to be more challenged. You will also feel more comfortable to join one of our intermediate classes.
Instructors available (or ask us to recommend someone in the contact form): Omri, Joseph, Christopher, Riji, Kiara

No man is to be judged by the mere nature of his duties, but all should be judged by the spirit in which they perform them.
– Swami Vivekananda, Karma Yoga: The Yoga of Action.
The bodē nyc™ Karma Program is inspired by Karma Yoga. Karma Yoga is the Yoga of work and action, as a spiritual offering without attachment to results or hoarding the benefits for oneself. We come together every day to practice Hatha Yoga, sometimes with as many as 40 strangers. As we continue to practice we learn that we have something very powerful in common: a quest for our best self.
Our Karma Yoga Program is looking for like-minded yogis interested in nurturing a positive and mindful environment at bodē nyc™ through work and action. We also understand that yoga can be a luxury that not everyone can afford and this programs allows those who deeply desire to improve their practice but are financially challenged, to still be involved and be part of the our community.
Karma Yogis commit to 3 hours of service per week for a least 3 months. These hours are spent helping around the studio in whatever way necessary: often cleaning, helping check in classes, and assisting the manager and owners with various projects. We require that you have practiced for at least three weeks prior to applying to the program.
Our goal is to create a “home away from home” where Good Karma is as natural as breathing. If you would like to integrate a Karma Yoga practice into your life; please fill out the application on this screen. As a member of our Karma Program you will become an intricate part of our family and be featured on our website so that you and the story of your practice can inspire others.
