San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Seeking Santosha, a Lifestyle Wellness Company is pleased to announced the future release of the DVD, Yogaeira™ by Amber Campion and upcoming Yogaeira Workshops in NYC.
Yogaeira is a fusion of Vinyasa Yoga and the Brazilian martial art/dance known as Capoeira. A practice that fully engages the mind, body, and heart deep into a space of self-reflection, inquiry, and playfulness. The practice is designed to ignite your inner animal and connect you to your truth, your instinctual call of movement and breath, as well as challenge you to push your practice to new heights with inversions, arm balances, backbends, and new postures that are signature moves of Yogaeira ™ such as Negativasana and Queda De Rins Asana.
“As I settled into the first Adho Mukha Svanasana in Amber Campion’s Yogaeira™ class off in the distance church bells began to chime followed by glorious singing as the Nicaraguan choir offered up it’s prayers. It was a normal Sunday in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua bar the recent volcano eruption and the fact I wasn’t doing a typical Vinyasa Flow. I may not have been reading along in the bible and sitting in a church pew in front of a Catholic Priest but my yoga mat and Amber’s voice was the guidance I was seeking on this particular day. Her carefully selected words directed my mind, body, and heart deep into a space of self-reflection and into some new playful asanas I’d never tried before. But don’t get me wrong, it’s yoga, and then some!” -Heidi Parker, Certified Yoga Teacher and Founder of Seeking Santosha
Yogaeira™ by Amber Campion has an approximate run time of 90 minutes with a suggested retail price of $17.99. The DVD will be available November 15, 2012 in Yoga/Capoeira studios nationwide and online at AmberJCampion.com, SeekingSantoshaNicaragua.com and Amazon.com.

DVD Special Features
On the DVD you will find a Technique Tutorial where Amber will offer a detailed explanation of some of the more challenging and signature postures. Another chapter will guide you through several self body work (massage) techniques to teach and encourage you to maintain a healthy mind and body through awareness of self nurturing. Amber will also teach you about the major pressure points that trigger your parasympathetic nervous system, turning down your "fight or flight" reactive mind and releasing serotonin (enhances calmness, improves mood, lessens depression) and endorphins (the body's "natural high" which gives pain relief and pleasure when released). The practice is also infused with pranayama (breathwork) throughout the flow, helping to release dopamine to enhance mental clarity and focus. Smiling, laughing, and not taking yourself too seriously is highly encouraged to remind you to stay at ease and playful as you move through this 65 minute journey of Yogaeira™
