Immerse yourself in the joy, theory, and practice of teaching Restorative Yoga. Learn to guide yourself and others into the deepest layers of ease and relaxation. Restorative Yoga is a practice of receiving support and allowing stillness to take the mind and body into a place of peace and tranquility. The practitioner holds poses with the aid of bolsters, blankets, pillows, blocks, and straps so that muscles can unwind into greater openness: soothing the nervous system, calming the “fight or flight response,” and quieting the mind.

Rest is essential to a healthy mind, body, and life. In our day-to-day experiences we all-too-often overextend ourselves by taking on more than we should, and then worrying about the rest. Resting the mind and restoring the body becomes imperative for rejuvenating the spirit. It is one of the greatest blessings to guide our students into the various practices of restoration.

June 30th – July 1st.
Money is one of those taboo subjects — along with Religion and Politics. Maybe you, too, learned that talking about money isn’t spiritual — or polite. But the longer money hides in the shadows, the bigger our money monsters loom.
I wouldn’t want to run into my Money Demons in dark alley. Would you?
This weekend will begin (or continue) your healing around how you make money and how you spend it. How you save and how you invest. Using the light of the yoga practice, we’ll bring Money out of the shadows; and onto our mats.
