Teaching the Softer Side of Yoga

with Andra Aitken
June 9th – 10th, 2018

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.

The Yoga of Money

with Vera Lester
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.

Yoga teachers will have the opportunity to clarify and deepen their understanding of the hips and shoulders to inform their own practice and better serve students in class. The hips and shoulders, the most mobile joints in the body, are the same type of joint – Ball & Socket – but are unique in form and functions. In this immersion we will explore our Ball and Socket joints and look at the balance between stability and mobility.

Restorative Teacher Training

with Andra Aitken
Fall Dates TBA

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.
