I like - The Way You Move
Limited Capacity seats available

A thoughtful practitioner knows what it feels like to embody asana. You’ve been in the shape a thousand times. But, still waters run deep. What is going on under the skin? What complex systems, spirals, and lines converge to build that shape? What is your body doing in asana? What are you seeing in students’ bodies as you survey the room? How can you use the function and structure of a well balanced body… of this physical form, to build the shape laid out in front of you. We will use a bit of flow to prepare the body to explore shapes and ideas from a fascial and structurally integrated point of view. Asana lab / question and answers to be the primary focus.

Anxiety is not who we are, it is not something we deserve, but a temporary feeling to be aware of and to learn from. In this workshop, we will begin by focusing on the body and inviting it to release stress and anxiety through yin poses and calming pranayama. Breath work is a direct way to soothe the tensions of daily life that live within our cells. After relaxing the body, we look into the mind with meditations and mantras that will highlight thought patterns and ways to have gentleness towards all parts of ourselves. You won't regret taking this time to release anxiety and practice patience towards the body and the mind.

In this workshop, an emphasis will be placed on repairing wounds and fears in order to hear the wisdom in the heart. Expect calming pranayama and various types of ‘loving-kindness’ techniques towards ourselves as well as others. The meditations will include repeating mantra within as well as visualizations on the heart chakra. Rebel against our head-centered world and find more balance between the dialogues in the head and the wisdom in the heart.

Living Yoga : Teaching the Yama’s + Niyama’s in Asana class
Limited Capacity seats available

As yoga teachers, we have a choice. We can live and teach the whole of yoga as outlined in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, or we can simply focus on the physical practice of asana. If we choose the whole of yoga, its important as teachers to be able to bring these valuable teachings into everyday asana class. Although the best way to share the Yamas and Niyama's is to live them, there are some practical ways to incorporate their lessons into an asana class. Here Ryan will offer some ways for these ethical and spiritual observances to be present in our teaching to help students develop the more profound qualities of living yoga.

The Science of Self

Throughout the ages human beings have been explaining who they are and why they are here through a number of internal and external sciences of the wisdom traditions.

Kirtronica Dance Experience
‘Kirtronica’ is a term for a new genre of music that is currently being established in the yoga world:  electronica dance music combined with live Sanskrit/Indian mantra chanting.   Jaya Lakshmi was one of the pioneers of ‘Kirtronica’ with her previous band “Lost at Last”, founded in Maui, Hawaii in 1997. Over the last few years Jaya Lakshmi has composed original electronic music using Ableton Live. Similar to the the Lost at Last sound, her new music is a mixture of house, tribal trance, and down-tempo with recordings of acoustic instruments like tabla, guitar, and sarod, and Ananda on bansuri flute.  In the current duo format performing ‘Kirtronica’  live,  Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda lead participants through an ecstatic dance journey that awakens their shakti and encourages everyone to chant along, inspiring devotional trance states and deepening their connection with the divine.

Are you one to normally kick up into handstand? Move through a transition quickly so you can get into your safe zone to hang out. Well not in this practice. Momentum is no longer a factor, you have to use those synergists and bandha's to groove here. If your wanting to float this is the perfect practice.

3 Keys to a Lifelong Vinyasa Practice
Limited Capacity filling up

Flow style yoga can make you feel amazing, but you can also develop some pretty gnarly injuries. This class focuses on 3 vinyasa ‘hot spots': The wrists, shoulders and lower back. For the first third of the class we will warm the body up. Then we will workshop key alignment points for some classic postures which compromise these parts of the body. Finally we will incorporate these principles back into the flow practice. The foundation of yoga is Ahimsa, or ‘do no harm’ - to others AND to your own body. Flow style yoga shouldn’t just be for the young and strong, but rather for anyone who want to be able to move intelligently for life. (All levels welcome - from beginners to anyone wanting to revisit the foundation of their practice - as well as teachers seeking tools for teaching basics classes.)

This workshop is all about shedding Fear, Ego, and the inner critic through guided yoga and dance. (This is not a dance class, no experience neccesary) When many of us think of dance we instantly seize up, or become fearful that others are going to judge us. Instead we will be creating a safe environment, and build a supportive tribe that will let you release your Avidya's (delusion's) this will allow you to move freely and without judgement. A short discussion and intention setting is then followed by 15 minutes of guided movement. After freeing the body, heart, and soul your yoga practice will be an all-levels Vinyasa flow where you get to explore movement within the yoga poses and transitions themselves. This practice is fun, lively, and soul lifting. Expect to sweat to fun beats and to laugh your "ASS"ana off.

Superflow Ocean Inspired Yoga
Limited Capacity filling up

Flow is the essence of our being. It involves being present to every breath and to our collective universal breath. In alignment-based flow yoga we move in a linear synchronicity, patterning our bodies to the alignment of yoga asanas. While this moving in a linear fashion is incredible learning and discipline, we tend to focus on this disciplined learning of movement, while ignoring our innate developmental movement patterns, the spiraling, circular forms of movement that are essential to our innate selves that we call “Super flow.”Drawing inspiration from Yoga, ancient martial arts, dance, surfing, ski and snowboard maneuvers, Super Flow is an ecstatic form of movement. Set to music, it starts off slowly allowing ourselves to feel centered and open in our bodies. Gradually we build up in intensity, spiraling back in touch with the joy of movement. You will sweat, release and feel the life force pulsing through you.

Enter the Silence-Listen to the Sound
Limited Capacity filling up

For this hike outside, we’ll go inside ourselves, light it up, take the sacred pause and tap into the gifts nature offers us; a resonant field from which to gather a way of being amongst all the doing.

We’ll begin with a short teaching on the nature of stillness and silence.

Our practice in the woods will emphasize stillness within movement, witnessing the subtle calls of nature, healing our own instinctual rhythm, and pausing the chatter of mind and mouth. (Guides will be offering subtle cues and teachings on the path).

How often are you honest with yourself about what you really want? How often do you acknowledge what your deepest desires are? In this empowering meditation we will invite in the clarity around these questions and plant the seeds of intention to start recalibrating the frequency we're emitting. Your thoughts create your frequency, or "vibe", and act as a magnet to the outside world attracting anything that resonates. In this meditation, we will give energy to the thoughts that will actively help us attract what we need to co-create the reality we deserve. There will be a guided introduction into this meditation on this topic followed by a silent meditation using a mantra technique. Basic instruction will be provided.

Rebel Heart: Meditations on Self-Care
Limited Capacity full

Do you spend a lot of time in judgmental thoughts? Do you think you aren’t good enough/ smart enough / interesting enough? The practice of meditation brings us into the present moment and encourages that we face all of these shadows, which can often be an uncomfortable practice. In this workshop, an emphasis will be placed on repairing wounds and fears in order to hear the wisdom in the heart. Expect calming pranayama and various types of ‘loving-kindness’ techniques towards ourselves as well as others. The meditations will include repeating mantra within as well as visualizations on the heart chakra. Rebel against our head-centered world and find more balance between the dialogues in the head and the wisdom in the heart. You will leave feeling grounded in knowing yourself and your deepest feelings a little better and how to be present in the heart in each moment.
