Back to Basics: A Workshop for Beginners

Our workshop will begin with a brief overview of yogic philosophy, answering the question "What is yoga and why should we practice it?"

Next, we will move through a traditional Hatha Yoga practice, pausing to learn more about the poses, props, and alignment while answering any questions that arise.

The workshop concludes with a restorative sequence wherein students will learn how to incorporate bolsters and blankets into their practice.

Though this workshop is designed for beginners, yogis of all levels are welcome to attend.

EXPLORATION OF SELF SERIES: SURRENDERING AND MANIFESTING with Alyssa Snow

Flyers - New Dsign.png

If true surrendering means letting go of our desires, what does it mean to manifest the life circumstances that we want? How can we do both?

It is absolutely possible to create our lives like an artist creates on a canvas. But should we? What would happen if we didn’t?

This exploration of self will include kundalini yoga medicine, breath medicine, mind training, journaling (with prompts), and verbal integration (sharing). Please bring sacred items for the altar and a journal and a pen.

Tummo Breatwork Workshop with Kerry Henwood

Tummo is a very refined and delicate system of breathwork. It brings you back to your authentic original light body self.

This technique purifies your three main channels. Resentment, hate, fear, anxiety, and eternal light and wisdom all reside in these channels. It also gives you the ability to reclaim your memories from past lives and remember incredible abilities that you were able to do. You can even rediscover knowledge you have stored away, ready to be used now, for your memory is always available, always yours since the beginning of your existence.

Exploration of Self Series: Flow and Control

If our life is a stream with its own current and twists and turns, why are we always rowing so hard? What would happen if we dropped those oars?

This exploration of self will include kundalini yoga medicine, breath medicine, mind training, journaling (with prompts), and verbal integration (sharing). Please bring sacred items for the altar and a journal and a pen.

Backbends for Health and Longevity Part Two

backbends3.10.png

With Colleen Kers

Backbends counteract the effects of gravity, which means they are anti-aging! They maintain and restore suppleness to the spine. These group of postures opens the heart and the entire front body, calming the brain. In a more integrated, holistic way they develop strength, flexibility, clarity, and fearlessness in body and mind, and contribute to a more resilient nervous system. When they are practiced with integrity and regularity, they can be soothing and therapeutic.

We will incorporate/review the fundamentals of Part 1 during our opening asana practice and deepen into the postures a bit more. “Lab” work will introduce one or two more advanced backbends to explore, experience, and appreciate with increased awareness and understanding.

Yogis who can’t attend the first session, but would like to attend the second must receive Colleen’s approval.

What does it mean to have power in our lives? How does it feel to lack it? What does that all look like in the life stream of our lives?

This exploration of self will include kundalini yoga medicine, breath medicine, mind training, journaling (with prompts), and verbal integration (sharing). Please bring sacred items for the altar and a journal and a pen.

KIRTAN WORKSHOP: SACRED SOUNDS, STORIES, AND CHANTS with Patrick Heffernan

february workshops (2) (1).png

Yoga and chanting have been synonymous for thousands of years. Most of us are familiar with the idea of “mantra” as a slogan or motto that serves as a reminder to ground us, bring peace, or express our devotion.

But where did these phrases and Sanskrit sounds come from, how have they persisted through centuries of cultural change and evolution, and what do they mean for us today?
