Are We Screwed? The Future of Yoga + Keeping It Real
Limited Capacity seats available

It’s no secret: yoga is both at its historical height of popularity, and also undergoing rapid change in the way it is taught and practiced. As teachers and artisans with wildly different backgrounds, Kathryn and Bo will share their discoveries of common ground, surprising insights, and fresh perspective on the future of yoga, the body, and the ways of developing and maintaining an authentic and lasting career.

In this full-day workshop, drawing from their collective expertise in storytelling, myth, branding, psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness, and yoga, Kathryn and Bo will highlight the major current forces that shape our bodies, careers, and our relationship with ourselves and others. We’ll explore social media, the paradigms or “boxes” that any established field creates for us, the pressure to produce and succeed, the drive to brand the self and body, and the need to cultivate approval from others on whom we depend for our livelihood.

Topics covered:

  • Relational, partner and challenge flows taught by Kathryn
  • Connective tissue work and restorative, therapeutic practices with Bo
  • The neuroscience and psychology of our relationship with our body, self, and others
  • The art of invention and re-invention
  • Discerning between the ‘shoulds’ and what lights you on fire

Together, we’ll access, connect with, and nourish our deep connection with mind, body, and spirit, and with the body of work we’re meant to bring to the world.

Whether you currently teach yoga, hope to teach, or infuse the practice into your life and work, this all-day experience brings insight into the forces that drive change so we can engage with and utilize their power rather than be confined and limited by them.

Please bring: two yoga therapy or tennis balls, a block, a blanket, a mat, and something to write with an in, plus your phone!

Ayurveda 101 for Yogis: Ayurvedic Theory, Self-Care Tools, and Kapha-Balancing Yoga
Limited Capacity filling up

The secret to enriching your day with more energy, clarity, and motivation is Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old Indian system of healing and sister science to yoga. Experience these time-tested tools in a daylong Ayurvedic retreat with Larissa Hall Carlson, faculty of the Kripalu School of Ayurveda and yoga teacher.

In the morning, you’ll identify your unique dosha, or mind-body constitution, which determines the daily routines and foods that will best support digestion and turn stress into joy. In the afternoon, you’ll dive into a juicy Ayurvedic yoga journey to relax the body, soothe nerves, and restore tranquility to the mind. Harmonize kapha dosha in time for spring with a full-body asana sequence, pranayama, and mindfulness meditation. Then you’ll try Abhyanga (self-massage) techniques to melt tension, and finish the day with a restorative yoga nidra to boost immunity.

Infinite Practices, Few Basic Principles: How Seasoned Teachers Build Meaningful Yoga Classes That Hook Their Students
Limited Capacity seats available

With so much information available to teachers, it can seem overwhelming to create meaningful classes that feel like your own. You don’t have to rely solely on the formulas you learned in teacher training to get out of that teaching rut.

Through in-depth group discussions and workshopping your questions throughout the day, you’ll discover how to apply these principles to design solid sequences, understand how to offer verbal cues and hands-on assists, handle injury prevention and management, and integrate philosophy more fully. Don’t miss this opportunity to simplify and unpack the process of developing your unique teaching style and creating balanced classes that keep students coming back to learn more.

Reading Bodies and Giving Adjustments
Limited Capacity seats available

As teachers, it is essential that we refine our ability to observe our students and be equipped to help each individual move to the next level in their practice. The dual art of reading bodies and doing hands-on adjustments is fundamental for teaching yoga. These skills enable us to help our students refine their practices in order to find the freedom that asana practice is all about. Starting the morning and afternoon sessions with a led practice to embody the work, we will move into the practice of hands-on and reading bodies.  Our focus will be on refining our skills to better help our students reach their potential.  In this partner-oriented workshop, we will focus on key poses that are most frequently practiced in classes, including variations, modifications, and when to use props and why.  We will cover how to teach beginners and how to deal with mixed levels of students in classes. This workshop is recommended for teachers who want to go deeper in their practice and understanding. Putting it all together, we will strengthen our ability to see clearly and to adjust our students safely—all with precision and compassion.

What to bring: Block, strap.  Blankets recommended.
Discussion, asana, hands-on partner work.

The Teacher as Leader: Using Your Platform for Interpersonal and Global Change
Limited Capacity seats available

As a teacher, we have a unique opportunity to support our students in a process of deep transformation that includes facilitating embodied experiences that can shift their physical and emotional energy systems. These energetic changes are what empower our students to engage with the world around them in a more integrated and meaningful way.  It is a privilege to facilitate and bear witness to these changes, knowing the impact that it can have on how they show up in the world. Therefore, our words matter as our influence can be far reaching. In order to hold space with integrity, we must continually commit to our own inner work and challenge any belief systems we embody that no longer serve our highest self, and therefore, our highest potential.

Join Seane for a unique conversation and class that will explore what it means to own the call of the teacher/leader. Through asana, discussion, reflection, and meditation, we will learn the various emotional and practical tools necessary in order to heal the personal wounds that can hold us back from embracing our leadership, purpose, and service in the world.

Asana, discussion, reflection, meditation.

One of the most powerful aspects of yoga is its ability to alleviate pain, be it physical, mental or emotional. Learn the common reasons behind specific types of pain in the body and how asana, meditation, nutrition and lifestyle can make pain disappear! Come and empower yourself to become your own healer. You will learn specific Purna Yoga techniques to relieve neck, shoulder, hip and knee pain; how to strengthen these joints; and how to prevent future pain.

The prevalence of arm balances and inversions in modern yoga has risen sharply with the potency of social media. As the interests in these postures has increased, more and more students expect them to be included in most classes. This full-day intensive is designed to provide yoga teachers with the ability to teach arm balances and inversions safely, effectively, and progressively.

You’ll also learn to become more proficient in these postures in your personal practice.

The Power of Relationship

Through integrated and internally rooted yoga practice we learn to embody this type of broad based equilibrium that is then reflected not only in our yoga poses, but in our relationships with others and the world as a whole. In this all day workshop we explore just how a dynamic yet contemplative asana practice that is supported by pranayama and an understanding of the ethical underpinnings of yoga philosophy informs the way we find harmony in life.

Morning session will be a guided asana practice followed by meditation and chanting. The afternoon session will include a pranayama practice as well as a lecture and discussion of philosophy with time for Q&A.
