Secrets from the Masters: Bhakti, Jnyana and Karma Yoga
Limited Capacity seats available

Bhakti (Love), Jnyana (Knowledge) and Karma (Action), the three great Yogas, correspond in the physical body to our three major energy centers: the heart, the head and the pelvis. The focus of this class will be on teaching students to access and direct the energy housed in each of these areas to help transform asana from physical exercise into a healing form of self-exploration and self-discovery. Learn how to channel these energies for your spiritual growth. Bring a strap, a block and a blanket.

From the Ground Up: Standing Pose Lab for Teachers and Serious Students
Limited Capacity seats available

Standing poses are some of the more complex yet beneficial poses for all level students. They are the building blocks from which all other groups of poses such as backbends, inversions, twists, hip openers, and forward bends can be built upon. Simply put, standing poses are the heart of a yoga practice. Paramount to a healthy, strong asana practice, they are also basic tools for teaching safe and informative classes. In this workshop, we will examine these poses "from the ground up" so that we can teach them effectively and safely. We will learn how students get into trouble when these poses are practiced incorrectly. A yoga teacher's skill lies largely in the ability to see the alignment and energy flow in the bodies and then make corrections and adjustments. We'll focus on the science of "looking," the art of "seeing," and the means to improve the pose, including physical adjustment. We will cover a range of standing poses and as tools for all other poses.

This is a partner-oriented workshop.

Please bring a block and a strap. 

Mostly asana, some discussion.

The Ayurvedic Kitchen
Limited Capacity seats available

Join Chef Richard LaMarita, Chef Instructor at Natural Gourmet Institute and 35-year practitioner of Ayurveda trained through the Maharishi Ayurveda organization, for a 3-hour workshop on Ayurvedic Cuisine.

In this workshop, we will focus on the definition of health in Ayurveda as it relates to Ayurvedic cuisine. We will look in depth at the 6 tastes according to Ayurveda — sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent and pungent, and sample foods in each category to help recognize and understand each specific Ayurvedic taste. We will also explore how to strengthen digestion, or “agni”, and eliminate bodily toxins, or “ama,” as well as talk about the process of eating in regards to becoming more mindful of our eating habits.

Purify, Purpose, and Participation
Limited Capacity seats available

To step fully into our power and activate change requires stamina, both physically and mentally. When our bodies are fatigued, because of environmental or emotional stressors, it can influence the way we experience the world and our place within it. Being a part of the change requires action and presence. Join Seane for this purifying experience for the body, mind, and spirit. In this workshop we will do Sun Salutations A and B, detoxifying standing sequences, inverted poses, breathing exercises, and a restorative cool down. The yoga sequences in this workshop will utilize three internal components for cleansing: abdominal compression, decompression, and twists. This intensive is designed to help us identity, reconcile, and heal restrictive emotional patterns and physical imbalances in our mind/body and set new intentions to clear a pathway toward heart-filled purpose. This workshop is for multi-levels, but will be challenging, be provocative, and create heat.

Some discussion, mostly asana.

The Razor’s Edge
Limited Capacity seats available

Living on the edge can be precarious. But it is in that very spot—the gap between knowing and not knowing, coming and going, understanding and confusion that transformation and insight are vividly illuminated. Within our yoga practice we find tools to honestly work the edge of sensation, form, emotion and thought so postures become a meditation in motion that support the inevitable challenges and changes we encounter in everyday life. In this half-day workshop we’ll work with asana, pranayama and meditation to drop into the edge of sensation and change.

Expanding our Body Map: Pathways to Emotional Balance, Pain Regulation, and Vibrant Aging
Limited Capacity seats available

Our brain contains a own body map, a mental representation of the body and its functions. But this isn't just about neural real estate; our body map plays a key role in emotional regulation, pain modulation, quality of life, and aging. In this half-day workshop, we'll explore the science behind body maps as it relates to these key areas of well-being. We'll examine the forces that diminish our body map, including movement amnesia, practice patterns, and the social norms and language of yoga. And we'll experience several ways to expand our brain's body mapping system, and plant seeds for its future growth, through a body map-enriching, vinyasa-inspired, movement-infused yoga practice; a connective-tissue hydrating mini-practice; therapeutic variations on savasana and restorative yoga, and embodied approaches to meditation.

Yoga for Inner Peace
Limited Capacity seats available

What happens when women get together? Something immeasurably powerful and transformative can come from the support of other women. We set down our barriers and dwell in our commonalities, compassion, and understanding. Even though this is only a half of day, the goal is to leave you feeling like you have just been on a weeklong women’s retreat. In her 20 years of teaching women's retreats, Saidman Yee has come to understand that a lot of times we are struggling with similar issues and thinking that we are alone. Emotional needs of a woman are different from those of a man. We will target common areas where tension, trauma, and secrets can be buried with the intension of unleashing joy. We will use asana, pranayama, meditation, journaling and dialogue to dig into areas that keep us stuck. Why and where are we stuck? What are we afraid of? Are we living our potential? Are we using our voices to speak our truth? Do we understand our importance and validity? We will experiment with practices that address issues such as forgiveness and confidence. We will explore different tools that unlock bindings in the body, breath, and brain that keep you from realizing that you are enough.

This is the subject matter of Rod’s book, The Four Desires. In this session, Rod will outline a practical and powerful approach to truly embodying the highest principles of Yoga, providing the key teachings for achieving spiritual as well as worldly fulfillment.

Strong + Stable + Safe Shoulders
Limited Capacity seats available

The highly mobile and beautifully intricate nature of the shoulder girdle makes it one of the most vulnerable parts of your body—especially for flow or vinyasa yogis. The nuances of the shoulder girdle also make giving accurate, scientifically rationale cues very challenging for teachers to provide. Unfortunately, this combination of challenges leads to an excessive number of injuries and long-term wear and tear. Until now. This intensive will demystify the anatomy of your shoulders, give you a comprehensive rationale for using your shoulders in every category of yoga posture, and educate you about the common sources of shoulder injuries in yoga. This intensive will also dispel some of the common misunderstandings about how the shoulders function in yoga postures. Lastly, you’ll learn a comprehensive practice for keeping your shoulders strong, stable and balanced—setting you up for a lifetime of more efficient, safe yoga.
