Change Your Patterns, Change Your Life, with Ingrid Jaeger & George Peterson, Saturday January 13th, 1:00-3:00 pm $40
When we change our patterns, we change our lives. We all suffer in our own unique way from holding onto negative patterns and addictive behaviors that no longer serve us. It doesn't matter how these negative patterns play a role in our life, what matters is that we learn how to let go of our negative habitual behaviors in order to live the life we truly want.
This workshop will begin by focusing on defining and understanding the mental and emotional patterns in our life, known as samskaras. They can be positive or negative, but negative samskaras are what hinder our positive evolution. When we repeat these negative behaviors we reinforce them, creating a groove that is difficult to resist.
During this workshop we will learn how to implement Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness as tools to release our negative mental and emotional patterns through which we cycle over and over again, and create positive life supporting habits. So join us as we explore an array of spiritual tools and knowledge that will help you live your best life and show up as the best version of yourself.
Ingrid Jaeger began practicing yoga as a young adult and soon realized that yoga was not just a physical practice, but it also helped relieve her stress and anxiety. In 2001, Ingrid decided to move to Cape Cod and change careers, and began working in the fitness industry as a certified fitness instructor and personal trainer. She started teaching a weekly yoga class at her gym, and has been teaching yoga ever since. Because of the personal experience she’s had with anxiety for many years, she hopes to teach others how to manage stress and anxiety through yoga and mindfulness. She holds a 200 hour yoga instructor certification through Kind Yoga, and continues to study with wonderful teachers including Bo Forbes, Nikki Meyers, Josh Summers, and many other local instructors throughout Cape Cod.

George is also a Life Design Coach, Speaker, and the creator of the unique 22-Day Guided Meditation Series "Navigating Recovery and Overcoming Adversity".
Before George began meditating, he was regularly making unhealthy decisions for his mind, body and spirit. After educating himself on Deepak Chopra's practices for wellbeing, he began incorporating more meditation and yoga into his life. By March of 2012 this spiritual toolkit had made such a drastic impact on him that he decided to go to The Chopra Center's signature meditation and yoga retreat known as "Seduction of Spirit". Here he learned the practice of Vedic Meditation, known as Primordial Sound Meditation and afterwards made the decision to make this practice a substantial part of his daily routine. George then went on and became a Certified Vedic Meditation instructor in June 2013 , a Certified Hatha Yoga teacher in November 2014, and a Ayurvedic Lifestyle Educator in February 2015. After learning to teach these practices, he currently teaches Vedic Meditation, Ayurveda and Hatha Yoga to students who are interested in physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
