(Scottsdale, AZ) Yoga instructors Mally Paquette, Wanda Letourneau, and Shehnaz (Betti) Ahmed join Harumi Yoga+ in North Scottsdale. Kundalini and Ashtanga classes are available on Wednesday, February 5th from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

Kundalini is a spiritual practice, which moves the energy through the body and brings the unfoldment of awareness. Kundalni yoga is available for any level practitioner. The combination of breath, asana, mudras and mantra allow a deep experience, which opens the nadir, cleanses and detoxifies the entire body, delivering a balance to allow consciousness to blossom.

Ashtanga is a traditional yoga practice for beginners and beyond. It is a “moving mediation”. The partnership of the breath with the asana is the focus. This practice brings breath/prana into all parts of the body, delivering a renewal for the physical, mental and spiritual components of our lives. All levels can benefit from this awareness, “Come be the witness!”

Mally Paquette has been involved with fitness for over 35 years. Her career began as a USPTA tennis professional and then progressed into marathons and fitness training. Returning to an original passion of yoga, Mally re-certified her yoga expanding into Hatha, Ashtanga and Kundalini. She recently received her 500-hour Certificate from 7 Centers with a Yoga therapy emphasis. She resides in Sedona, Arizona with her husband Brien and their many dogs. She is passionate and knowledgeable on many levels of the ancient indigenous paths to health having visited and been taught by the Kogi in South America. She is an excellent motivator who genuinely cares about each individual.

Wanda Letourneau – Yoga Instructor RYT500

Wanda’s classes accommodate everybody and every body. They are designed to mobilize and heal the spaces in your body through stretching, breath work and meditation and stabilize your body in space through Astanga vinyasa flow sequencing. In class you may experience partner poses, adjustments, or restorative poses. All you have to do is just show up.

Restorative classes will be on Tuesday at 6: 00 – 7:15pm and Thursday at 4: 00 – 5:15pm

Shehnaz (Betti) Ahmed – NIA instructor

Betti Ahmed, a classical pianist and ballet/jazz dancer, first fell in love with the Nia Technique while in college. After graduating from college, she followed her passion to get certified as a Nia instructor in Los Angeles and immediately started teaching in the L.A. area. When she moved to Arizona in 2010, she furthered her education with Nia co-founder, Debbie Rosas, and prominent Nia Trainer, Helen Terry in Portland. Betti is also a Licensed Massage Therapist, having studied at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, which she believes is a great complement to her teaching. “For me, Nia is freedom – I am free to be uninhibited, playful, strong, vulnerable… you name it. Nia is not only a great workout, but it has the ability to transform one’s life. I love that, and I love sharing it with people and building a community with those who are open to it” Betti said.

Nia classes will be on Monday at 4:30 – 5:30pm and Saturday at 8am to 9am

Harumi Yoga+ Holistic Healing House is located on the Southwest corner of Pima and Pinnacle Peak Roads in North Scottsdale, AZ.  The Studio offers various types of Yoga classes, therapies, wellness workshops and meditation.  Harumi Yoga is a great place to develop new friendships and community with fun and entertaining events too, like dance.

Sylvia’s Spas are a series of short educational, armchair travel videos set at three locations of YTL’s Spa Village in Southeast Asia. The footage was created to highlight the works of Sylvia Planning and Design at Tangjong Jara and Pangkor Laut in Malaysia and Tembok in Bali. These are the first resorts of this kind in that their focus is on infusing ancient healing modalities of the Indigenous Malay, Chinese, Indian and Balinese people into the spa experience.

The videos are an appetizer of the work of Sylvia Sepielli, a world-renowned spa designer, and give guests a taste of the unique experience of Spa Village. As seen in the footage, concentration at these luxurious resorts is not on typical surface spa treatments, but rather it is on caring for guests in greater depth by “massaging” the soul.

This specific type of care has a history of more than a thousand years with origins in the convergence of the different cultural influences during the days of the Malacca Sultanate. All treatments combine physical and spiritual health and well-being, and are based on one of four umbrella concepts: Rejuvenation and Longevity, Relaxation and Stress Reduction, Detoxification, and Romance.

The locations provide opportunities to visit such sites as the sacred water temple, Tirtha Empul. The water is used in spa rituals to enhance the healing process of guests. Exclusive therapies like Body Smoking in Malaysia are another experience available at Spa Village Resorts.

The three luxurious spa properties are a result of the collaboration between the globally recognized spa designer Sylvia Sepielli and YTL. Sylvia’s Spas is a sneak preview of an unforgettable stay at one of the three Southeastern Asia resorts. They display an unparalleled sincerity of the resort employees’ dedication to guests and their health. The videos are a glimpse of a world class experience of enlightenment and rejuvenation.

Take a look:

“Green Washing” is used by companies claiming to be eco-friendly that may not be. The media is becoming suspect of all the claims of “being green” and them starting to turn a blind ear…and so are consumers.

At CloudNine Marketing Inc., we position and deliver media exposure that will cut through the clutter. We pioneered green centric public relations and marketing when we planted our roots in 1997 marketing cyberspace entities, holistic authors, practitioners and products. We have worked with such dignitaries as Deepak Chopra MD on his Alliance for the New Humanity and Ed Begley Jr. to promote SUN FESTIVAL in Scottsdale @ Westworld April 2005 It was a celebration of renewable energy and sustainability.

We were there at the onset before it became “hip” to tout these kinds of products and services. If one of your value adds is a GREEN focus and you’re interested in learning more about marketing, give us a call or better yet visit and learn how we can put the silver lining in your holistic marketing, public relations and event planning campaigns.
