Standing Poses- Reading Bodies & Hands On Adjustments For Teachers & Serious Practitioners
Limited Capacity full

Standing poses are some of the more complex yet beneficial poses for students of all levels. 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. 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 geared towards teachers who wish to improve their teaching skills and for serious students who want to take their practice to the next level of understanding.

Meditation: The Four Phases of the Mind

All the thousands of meditation techniques that exist are based on four fundamental meditative states:

Present Moment Awareness: This state is common to techniques such as Zen, Vipassana, and mindfulness.

Calm, focused Intention: This experience is common to hypnosis, creative visualization, prayer, and manifestation.

Energized Body-Mind: This is the experience of peak performance states, runner’s high, kundalini, vinyasa. Your body is energized, you’re heart is beating, you’re highly active, but at the same time your mind is completely calm. You are operating at peak capacity in a perfect state of flow.

Transcendence: In this state you go beyond the intellect and ego, losing sense of time and self but gaining sense of universality.

In this class we will cover basic techniques in all four meditative experiences and explore how they work together and when we should use them in order to develop a powerful, calm, resourceful and creative mind.

True transformation begins when we understand there is no separation between the mind, body, and spirit. Understanding this interdependency can radically shift the way we “see” the body, empowering us to support our own health and wellness in a more integrated (and therefore holistic) way. Through yoga, we can explore the mind/body connection, the impact our emotional life has on our health, how to “read” or map the body symbolically, and how to interpret these physiological/emotional messages as spiritual guidance meant to open us to love, acceptance, and to appreciate the interconnection that binds us all as one.

Limited Capacity seats available

Tight hips can feel impossible to open and dudes tend to have them. No matter how long you stay in pigeon, the next day it's back to square one. Static stretching alone does not lead to flexibility. Through Matt’s deep knowledge in bodywork, yoga, and anatomy, he will give you alignment techniques that will increase your range of motion, prevent knee pain, and ultimately build up the integrity of the hip joints. Prepare to sweat, laugh, and walk away with knowledge that will inspire your practice for years to come.

Meditation: The Four Phases of the Mind
Limited Capacity full

All the thousands of meditation techniques that exist are based on four fundamental meditative states:

Present Moment Awareness: This state is common to techniques such as Zen, Vipassana, and mindfulness.

Calm, focused Intention: This experience is common to hypnosis, creative visualization, prayer, and manifestation.

Energized Body-Mind: This is the experience of peak performance states, runner’s high, kundalini, vinyasa. Your body is energized, you’re heart is beating, you’re highly active, but at the same time your mind is completely calm. You are operating at peak capacity in a perfect state of flow.

Transcendence: In this state you go beyond the intellect and ego, losing sense of time and self but gaining sense of universality.

In this class we will cover basic techniques in all four meditative experiences and explore how they work together and when we should use them in order to develop a powerful, calm, resourceful and creative mind.

According to the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, “There is no doubt that after six months of practice” of uddiyana bandha “death is conquered.” Although this class cannot offer you eternal life on Earth (!) it will show you the powerful effect that your “flying up lock”(uddiyana) holds.

We will briefly review the mechanics of bandha and touch on the relationship between the diaphragm, the psoas, and a spacious low back. Most of the class will be spent taking the practice for a spin. Expect to explore both the standing isolated kriya as well as plenty of practice within the flow.

Meditation: The Four Phases of the Mind
Limited Capacity full

Present Moment Awareness: This state is common to techniques such as Zen, Vipassana, and mindfulness.

Calm, focused Intention: This experience is common to hypnosis, creative visualization, prayer, and manifestation.

Energized Body-Mind: This is the experience of peak performance states, runner’s high, kundalini, vinyasa. Your body is energized, you’re heart is beating, you’re highly active, but at the same time your mind is completely calm. You are operating at peak capacity in a perfect state of flow.

Transcendence: In this state you go beyond the intellect and ego, losing sense of time and self but gaining sense of universality.

In this class we will cover basic techniques in all four meditative experiences and explore how they work together and when we should use them in order to develop a powerful, calm, resourceful and creative mind.

Rebel Heart: Meditations For The Soul
Limited Capacity full

Are you constantly lost in thought, worries, doubts, the past or the future?
Meditation brings us into the present moment, which can often be an uncomfortable practice and feeling. Therefore, we must work to repair wounds, fears and judgments before we can act from the softness of the heart. 
In this workshop, we will explore calming pranayama and various types of ‘loving-kindness’ techniques towards ourselves as well as others. The meditations will include repeating mantra within and visualizations on the heart chakra. 
Rebel against this head-centered world we live in and find more balance between the intelligence of the head and the wisdom in the heart. You will leave feeling grounded in knowing yourself, your thoughts and your deepest feelings a little better so you can be present in the moment as it happens.
A handout will be provided for future reference.

Finally at Peace! Blow Your Anxiety Away at Last!
Limited Capacity full

Anxiety is part of daily living. Everybody, and from a young age, experiences certain fears, stress, and worry when faced with life situations. When fear becomes ever-present and threatening to the point where it interferes with our enjoyment of activities or the ability to deal with everyday obligations in a naturally healthy way, it becomes an anxiety disorder. Fortunately there are tools to help us overcome anxiety, and meditation is one of them. It has been proved that meditation, even brief, can help restore inner tranquility and stability. According to Janick, you only need 5 to 10 minutes a day to live a more peaceful life away from fear and anxiety. She will guide you to 3 different meditation techniques to quickly help you restore balance in your everyday life and find inner peace.

In this talk, Josh will share with you some of the values, ideas and lessons used to embrace the challenges we face, to draw energy from them to enhance our personal experience and elevate our levels of awareness. Roy will tell you how he created a successful non-profit called High Fives Foundation, that supports the dreams of mountain action sports athletes through injury prevention awareness while providing inspiration and resources to those that suffer life-altering injuries. 

This talk will focus on the birth of the High Five, community, and how the Foundation has supported athletes through the recovery process.  A true storytelling approach on how to overcome defeat and rise above, this is for all that want to live inspired and find the true secret to the High Five. Whether you are a healer, teacher, athlete or an avid fan of stories you will benefit from, and enjoy the stories being shared.  This is a truly an interactive experience.

In this yin class we will melt into hip bliss by focusing a practice that will open the hips in flexion, extension, rotation, adduction and abduction, spending longer time in postures that work with common areas of restriction. Freeing the hip joints enables greater health of the spine and can help strengthen the core and lower limbs.

Rebel Heart: Meditations For The Soul
Limited Capacity seats available

Are you constantly lost in thought, worries, doubts, the past or the future?
Meditation brings us into the present moment, which can often be an uncomfortable practice and feeling. Therefore, we must work to repair wounds, fears and judgments before we can act from the softness of the heart. 
In this workshop, we will explore calming pranayama and various types of ‘loving-kindness’ techniques towards ourselves as well as others. The meditations will include repeating mantra within and visualizations on the heart chakra. 
Rebel against this head-centered world we live in and find more balance between the intelligence of the head and the wisdom in the heart. You will leave feeling grounded in knowing yourself, your thoughts and your deepest feelings a little better so you can be present in the moment as it happens.
A handout will be provided for future reference.

Meditation: The Four Phases of the Mind
Limited Capacity filling up

All the thousands of meditation techniques that exist are based on four fundamental meditative states:

Present Moment Awareness: This state is common to techniques such as Zen, Vipassana, and mindfulness.

Calm, focused Intention: This experience is common to hypnosis, creative visualization, prayer, and manifestation.

Energized Body-Mind: This is the experience of peak performance states, runner’s high, kundalini, vinyasa. Your body is energized, you’re heart is beating, you’re highly active, but at the same time your mind is completely calm. You are operating at peak capacity in a perfect state of flow.

Transcendence: In this state you go beyond the intellect and ego, losing sense of time and self but gaining sense of universality.

In this class we will cover basic techniques in all four meditative experiences and explore how they work together and when we should use them in order to develop a powerful, calm, resourceful and creative mind.
