TEACHERS:  Earn 3 continuing education units toward your Yoga Alliance renewal.


NUAD BO-RARN, the Traditional Massage of Thailand, is an ancient form of therapeutic bodywork first practiced over 2500 years ago in Thailand and combines acupressure, yoga, compression and deep stretching techniques utilizing the practitioner's palms, thumbs, elbows, soles of the feet and knees to release muscles and free joints. Performed on a floor mat, both practitioner and client move
through four traditional positions; front, back, side and seated. Practiced in meditative and dance-like movements, Thai Massage oxygenates the blood, improves circulation, increases joint flexibility,
massages internal organs, reduces stress, increases energy and facilitates mind/body/spirit balance.
It is often referred to as 'Yoga for lazy people.'

The practice of KIRTAN, call and response chanting,  is a participatory music experience that originated in India about 500 years ago.  It is a devotional practice known as Bhakti Yoga. Like other forms of yoga, Bhakti Yoga, is about connection. Connection to divinity,
connection to our true selves, connection to others.

Iyengar Introspective
An Introduction to Philosophy and Alignment
with Scott Hobbs

Sunday, February 17, 201

*TEACHERS:  Earn 3 continuing education units toward your Yoga Alliance renewal.

The practice of Iyengar yoga focuses on proper body alignment which allows the body to develop harmoniously in an anatomically correct way, as well as guiding the mind into the proper channels
to make the body a fit vehicle for meditation. Because all bodies have different weaknesses and strengths, Iyengar Yoga applies the use of props (wooden blocks, chairs, blankets and belts)
to help the body into the correct positions so that one can work in a range of motion
that is both safe and effective.

The Rhythm of Drumming
with Matthew Clark, RYT-200

A Monthly Workshop Series beginning
Friday, February 22nd
7:15 - 9:30pm

This two hour monthly gathering focuses on the meditative space found within drumming.  We'll explore the overlap between the spaces found in drumming, a meditative Asana practice and via Pranayama etc.  But mostly these monthly gatherings will be for playing drums and learning by doing.  Compared to the three hour Yoga Drumming workshop we held in December, we'll spend less times on the basics of rhythm and spend more time just playing and entering into that calm meditative space that drumming can offer.  We'll still do some Pranayama and Asana to continue to draw that correlation and guide our focus internally.  Bring comfortable clothes, a drum if you have one, (some will be provided), and an open mind and playful spirit.  Suitable for all levels of ability.

Please bring comfortable clothes for a standard Yoga practice as well as writing materials. There will be lecture segments of the workshop. Also bring a small hand drum (if you have one.) Several drums will be provided and all will have a chance to play. Suitable for all levels of ability. *TEACHERS:  Earn 2 continuing education units toward your Yoga Alliance renewal.

Workshop Fee: Suggested Donation $10-$20 at the door

The Study of
Pranayama and the Bandhas

with Nancy Goodstein

Sunday, February 24, 2013
1:00am-4:00 Noon

TEACHERS:  Earn 3 continuing education units toward your Yoga Alliance renewal.

Pranayama (the study of the breath)*
Bandha (use of the body’s internal locks)*
*These are the methods of directing, and or, manifesting Prana (energy)

This workshop delves into the studies of Pranayma and Bandha as they are connected to yogic postures. This brings them to higher levels of mental and physical involvement which leads to greater freedom, emotionally and energetically. With the integration of these three disciplines, the body builds more strength and vitality while practicing yoga postures, than it would without this connection. The circulatory, respiratory, and cleansing systems of the body become more deeply involved and therefore, more deeply activated.

An Introduction to the Adaptation of Yoga
to Those with Special Needs

with Leslie Bogart

Saturday, March 9, 2013

TEACHERS:  Earn 3 continuing education units toward your Yoga Alliance renewal.

Viniyoga or Yoga as TKV Desikachar wishes that the discipline be called, is rooted in the principles taught to him by his father, Sri T. Krishnamacarya. Krishnamacarya was also the teacher of well known contemporary Yoga masters B.K.S. Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois and Indra Devi.

The American Viniyoga Institute, founded by Gary Kraftsow, uses the term Viniyoga to refer to Yoga as a practice that is adapted to meet the physical, mental and emotional needs, present lifestyle and goals of each individual. The practice can include asana, pranayama, sound, meditation and other classic elements. Viniyoga emphasizes breath and postures, often coordinated in movement, to strengthen and address the therapeutic requirements of the individual.

Intro to Kundalini

with Alissa Stahl,

Friday, April 5, 2013
7:15 - 9:30pm

Also known as the Yoga of Awareness, Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is considered the most comprehensive of yoga traditions, combining meditation, physical exercises, breathing techniques and mantra.  It is said that the Kundalini energy resides dormant in each of us, and when we awaken this energy we can awaken to the power of our true nature and greatest potential.

Ashtanga yoga, as taught to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois by his teacher, and as he passes down to us is a set system of poses linked by movement and breath. Power Yoga is said to be based on it, and while both are physically demanding, Ashtanga in it's true form is hugely different. Ashtanga has a scientific design, which is malleable to include those of all physical abilities, and that is structured to help the practitioner not only achieve fitness and health of the body, but stillness and well being of the mind.  In this workshop, safety of the body and stillness of the mind will be used as a means of attaining the poses, and considered of higher importance.
