This is perfectly sticky-sweet vinyasa yoga class, with emphasis on thoughtful movement and body awareness.

Breath Powered Spaceship
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Have you ever held your breath when things got tough? Have you ever breathed a huge sigh of relief? That is no coincidence… as your breath flows, so goes your life. Every tradition has a breath practice that brings you a direct knowing of Spirit. The practice of Integrative Breathwork utilizes a fully connected breath (inhale/exhale with no pause), sound with music and toning, as well as intention. On a physical level, this connected breath practice will expand your respiratory system, increase oxygenation and decrease toxins in the body, giving you more energy and vitality. On a mental/emotional level, this practice supports the release of suppressed and repressed emotions as well as limiting patterns and beliefs. Integrative Breathwork is a cathartic breath practice intended to integrate stuck energies in your bio energetic field in which most practitioners experience less anxiety, more peace, more joy and a deep connection to Self. The session starts with a 30min discussion of how the practice works, theory and logistics, followed by a 45min full practice. Bring a mat, pillows, and a blanket to make a comfortable breathing nest.

Re-Write Your Relationship To Stress
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Instead of managing our relationship to our thoughts, we attempt to manage what’s happening around us. When uncomfortable situations surface in life, our automatic tendency is to back away towards comfort. Yoga, when practiced properly, actually uses discomfort to reveal where we are blocked and teaches us to relax even while feeling uncomfortable. Gradually, we loosen the grip of resistance and widen our capacity to remain integrated in other situations. In this workshop, we will use yoga-based techniques to skillfully approach intensity and practice re-writing our relationships to the circumstances we otherwise waste our energy attempting to control or avoid. This session is open to yoga enthusiasts of all experience levels. The Posture of Consciousness is a unique blend of Hatha and Raja Yoga. The session is a combination of correct understanding and direct experience.

Tech Neck
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Long hours spent at a computer create a forward-pitched head posture resulting in neck & shoulder tension. Carrying around children, driving, and stress from every day activities can also slowly whittle away at our uprightness creating a head-forward, slump-shouldered and collapsed chest posture often resulting in neck, arm and upper back pain (what Tias Little calls "schlump-asana"). The focus in this workshop will be on releasing tension in the neck, upper shoulders, and jaw and creating greater freedom of movement in those areas. Reducing cranial pressure may also result in relief from common complaints such as migraines, insomnia, eye strain, and bruxism. The shoulders are so closely tied to the neck that when there is shoulder strain it often comes with neck pain. In this workshop, we'll explore gentle flowing movements (the SATYA work developed by Tias Little) as a way of releasing holding patterns in the neck and shoulders and hydrating these areas with an increased flow of blood & prana, both vital in maintaining the health and longevity of the shoulders, cervical spine, and their surrounding structures. Parameters for participation include: the ability to get up and down off the floor without assistance, freedom from medical devices, and no acute spinal disc or nerve compression. No prior yoga experience is necessary.

The Alchemy of YES! Inspired by Hanumanasana
Limited Capacity seats available

What, enlighten up with Hanumanasana?! You may feel up against a seemingly insurmountable task. However, by establishing yourself in a steadfast connection to your heart, your breath and your alignment (along with a good sense of humor), what seems impossible becomes an invitation to discover your own strength and freedom. We will tap into the POWER OF YES. Hanuman reminds us that great leaps of faith are possible through love. He serves Bhakti to help us return to living from our hearts. Invite the spirit of love and devotion (Bhakti) through both unwavering strength and refined sensitivity. Invigorating and exciting is the moment when it all comes together. In this workshop, we will break down everything all the way to the tips of your toes and show how it all fits together to reveal the bravery in your own heart. Be ready for pure ecstasy! Achieving Hanumanasana (Full Split Pose) is only the beginning. There is always more to the pose to explore. And the more tiny adjustments you attempt can make a massive difference. You will feel the possibilities, notice subtleties and make adjustments that enable you to come closer to understanding this pose. This illumination will spread throughout your yoga practice and your life. Get ready to be transformed! Saying YES on the mat will teach you how to say YES to your Best Life Ever. Expect inspirational music, Hanuman chants and talk story about the mythological story of Hanuman, King Rama’s bestie, who filled with love and powered by YES took a giant leap across the ocean to reach the island of Sri Lanka in order to help King Rama re-unite with his wife Sita.

Chakra Perceptions- Radical Awareness of the Subtle Body
Limited Capacity seats available

You may have heard something about it, you may know nothing about it, nonetheless the health of your chakra system does effect you. Chakra means Wheel. The ancient Yogis and modern Clairvoyants who can see this energy all describe it as spinning vortices of energy that are located at certain points around the body. Most of the chakras in our energetic body correspond to main nerve centers, however, there are many more besides the simple 7 you may have heard about before. All life bodies have energetic centers- cats, dogs, horses and the Planet Earth. The power of the Chakra system then lies in much more than our simple connection to breath and our feelings. It lies to the very center of Life and connection to the Creative Source. For this connection is what causes us to be the creative energetic beings that we are. We have a Light Body made of these centers that connects to our our nerve and organ centers in the physical body, but we also have points that correspond to the Greater Energy of all life that allows us to envision and manifest on this planet. Without the chakra connection, we manifest mere base survival, and our higher forms of thought and creativity languish. Truly, as we are Spirit in a Human existence, then this connection to the Creative Force is what also causes us to be an integral part of this Source. We have Human Life Suits, if you will, that allow us to interface on the particular dimension and frequency that is Earth. It is a specific function that this body performs on this plane and it is unique in many ways. We get to sense in a tactile way the feelings and emotions of the world around us. Hence, the more clear we are in our energetic system, the more acute our own perceptions become and the more psychic we appear to be. It is not that we are ever not psychic, it is that we are frequently attuned to a lower vibration of perception that masks our awarenesses under the weight of fears and concerns, which in turn dulls our perceptions to the point of near invisibility.

Embodying Shakti: Enchanting Saraswati
Limited Capacity seats available

HELLO SHAKTI: Humankind has acknowledged the Divine Feminine for millennia, in its endless search for understanding and mystical union with the Universe. The diverse faces of the Goddess archetype – known in the East by many different guises, but always as Shakti, the great feminine energy that exists both within and without our bodies – can teach us many important lessons about creativity, love, healing, protection, dedication and personal power. Saraswati, the Muse of India's sacred pantheon, is referred to as a river, a current, a lightening bolt of inspiration.

The Body-Mind Connection: Recognizing Symptoms of Stress and Building Resilience
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Recognizing the differences between: compassion satisfaction, compassion fatigue, burn-out, and secondary trauma. Learn the basics of mindfulness and practice mindfulness techniques. Discussion and clarity on what this catchy buzz-word really means. Being present in the moment through breath connection no matter the complexity of the task before you. The purpose of pranayama and meditation is to bring a one pointed focus, the breath, which is the barometer for understanding your mental state. We will be discussing all 11 senses, both the active and cognitive. How we give and receive information and how that affects your body physiological response to stress. Understanding these concepts is 99% practice and 1% theory. These practices are gentle and pacifying to help calm the nervous system to prepare the body to be still and build resiliency.

The Role of Restoration Yoga as a Healing Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

Restorative Yoga may seem to be intimidating at first. How to place the supports, the blocks, the straps.....? Relax- this is the key word in restoration, Relaxation. In this session, learn what makes this practice more than just relaxing, but a true state of Surrender. Most people spend a great deal of the waking, conscious day (and truthfully, their slumbering unconscious night!) in dealing with stress. For many folks, the very act of lying back and being still is even in itself a massive shift in allowing. Minds are busy filling in the gaps of what I woulda, coulda, shoulda have done. Or endlessly loop around the what I must do next. This process creates a mental crazy train that is deftly crippling otherwise normal, healthy people. Teaching them what slowing down even means, is a challenge! Add to this, the amount of toll that is placed upon the human body through overindulgences- whether this be too much sitting at a computer, or too much spinning in the gym. Our bodies find healing in the place between such states. The beauty of Restoration yoga, is that even people with no prior yoga experience, or who are in recovery from addictions and trauma, can find deep psychological support and healing in profound ways. In fact, the vulnerability that can be exposed and then lovingly supported is beautiful. Come experience for yourself why this gentle practice is so dearly needed in a time of accelerated change.

Deep Relax
Limited Capacity filling up

Taught by Danielle and created by Sri Dharma Mittra, our guided restorative session to help you break free from the stress of the noisy and restless world that maintains its presence in our bodies and minds at all times. This practice will allow you to take the time to let all the cells of your physical body, joints and organs de-stress and begin to find balance. This result occurs on an unconscious level as your bodily systems become healthy, balanced and refreshed. You will then be ready to sit quietly for the final minutes in the practice of contemplative meditation, to bring your awareness even further within and guide you toward the Real Self deep in your heart. From this place, it will be easy for you to acknowledge, see and feel the unity in the diversity, the sameness of all. You will slowly realize all is within and we are all one as Sri Dharma often says. Each session includes different special practices and lectures. Danielle has studied 1800 hours with Sri Dharma and is a registered 800 hour teacher with his school.

The Yoga of Chocolate: A Journey of the Senses
Limited Capacity seats available

With the practice of pratyahara you can cultivate a more intimate relationship to your experience of sensation. A less common translation of the word pratyahara is ‘to recover the senses'. In this workshop, chocolate and asana will be the vehicles which we will use to cultivate that sensitivity, as our eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, heart, and whole body take in the delicate subtleties in the different varieties of chocolate. Combined with the chocolate tastings, we will explore SATYA, somatic movement techniques developed by Tias Little, to further heighten that awareness. In this workshop, chocolate will be used as a means of directing the participants' attention inward, and not at all as a gimick. The aim is to use chocolate as a way of encouraging people to slow down and really taste, savor, and enjoy their present moment experiences, whatever they may be ( (this one they will hopefully find especially delicious!) Combining the chocolate tasting with the SATYA work from Tias Little (SATYA stands for 'somatic awareness training for yoga asana' will allow the attendees to go deeper and deeper inward through a variety of different means, both complementing one another...as they become more attuned to the smell, texture, tastes of the chocolate during the tastings, their awareness of subtle physical sensation during the movement will be heightened as well!

What It Is Like to Be a New Human
Limited Capacity seats available

What is the evolution of consciousness and what do we need to know in this day and time? What is "Awakening"? What is the "New Paradigm"? What do we consider "new" abilities, new skills, new jobs? What are the "upgrades" for and how to cope? What does it mean to be "multidimensional"? How do multidimensional minds work? What is 5D? How does 5D manifesting work? What are the 5D relationships? How to assist humanity and the Planet at this time and what can we do both individually and collectively? – these are some of the questions that will be covered in this interactive workshop and discussion led by Isabella A. Greene. The workshop will also include short relaxing meditation to activate the Heart followed by a powerful experience of energetic tune-up for the whole group.

Southern Forms of Kalari Movement
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In this session we will introduce the first 3 Southern Empty Hands Forms, including the Salutation form. Native to the Southern Kerala practitioners of Kalarippayattu, these forms are now utilized to find peace and stability in times of stress. These standing sequences include turns, blocks, and kicks where we metaphorically eliminate obstacles that block our path through life. Kalaripayattu is known as Kalari in the West. It is an ancient martial and healing art that originated in Southern India thousands of years ago and has influences from the Druvidains and Aryans. There are references of Kalari (referred as martial techniques) in the ancient text The Vedas, the Mahabharata and Ramayana. The history of Kalari is of mythology, secrets, exploitation and experience passed through the generations. It is amazing that the art is still alive today given its difficult history. Being that Kalari is both a martial and a healing art, a practitioner or viewer has multiple paths to follow. We (Kalari Movement) choose to follow and teach the health and wellness aspects of Kalari. The art is life practice of preservation, to preserve ones-self and the life of others.

This is an on the land experience. Participants will travel with instructor, andell Rock Meet in lobby for shuttle.

It can help identify blocks and soften or eliminate them so that healing and transformation can occur. The meditation will be an introductory half-hour active exercise, with eyes closed and focused on the inner state. There are five stages: chaotic and deep breathing, cathartic emotional release, upward energy flow and calling in of the divine (HU), witnessing, and celebration. It uses the breath to energize energies stored in our cells, memory energies that contain patterns of outdated behavior. This is an excellent practice for reclaiming centeredness when distracted by life dramas.

Understanding The Philosophy of Vedic Wisdom

There is a great misconception among many people inhabiting this planet of I, me, and mine, that have produced a chaotic world that is destroying itself. The Vedic concepts of higher consciousness, the understanding of simple living and high thinking, can produce better harmony and stewardship of mother earth. This is applicable to all people who are on different levels of understanding, of how to attain a higher satisfaction and experience of the self within. Vedic wisdom is coming from a platform of absolute truth without mental speculation, and is used by all transcendentalists of India in their journey of self realization and the empowerment of freedom from the anxieties of a complex world of exploitation.

Embodying Shakti: Reclaiming Sita's Fire
Limited Capacity seats available

HELLO SHAKTI: Humankind has acknowledged the Divine Feminine for millennia, in its endless search for understanding and mystical union with the Universe. The diverse faces of the Goddess archetype – known in the East by many different guises, but always as Shakti, the great feminine energy that exists both within and without our bodies – can teach us many important lessons about creativity, love, healing, protection, dedication and personal power. Sita, avatar of Lakshmi, has long been categorized as the submissive wife of Rama. But if we dive deeper into Sita's story, we uncover a woman of unique spiritual fire and purpose; she who is unfraid of the flames and remains dedicated to her personal truth. In reclaiming Sita's fire - her blazing Agni - we generate our own firepower, burn bright, and light up the Universe. Join Ana Pilar and Jamie as they tap into the Great Goddess energy within through a dynamic, playful and creative blend of storytelling, yoga and drum-guided visual meditation. By embodying these energies in both the physical (yoga asana) and metaphysical (guided meditation) realms, participants begin to recognize the Shakti energy moving through and around them every day, as well as start building personal practices that channel this vibrant feminine power to lift them toward their full potentials. All genders welcome!

Satsang with Mohanji - A Rare Opportunity to Find Yourself
Limited Capacity seats available

A “Satsang with Mohanji” session is essentially about YOU with the Master. It is all about finding yourself. As is typical of the tradition of liberation, Mohanji will use a medley of practices such as Q&A, discourse, dhyana (meditation), pranayama, mantras/shlokas, manana (contemplation techniques), etc., to allow the participant an opportunity to start entering their inner space and seek within. The actual flow will finally depend on orientation and energy of the participants. At this session, following satsang, Mohanji will give Shaktipat (energy transfer) to all participants who choose to receive it. The actual content of the satsang will be similar to the Friday and Saturday sessions (and thus the 2 hour stated session length below). The additional length for this session is to allow time for participants to receive Shaktipat. If necessary the satsang portion may be shortened to accommodate more people receiving Shaktipat.

We will explore the Dark Goddess astrologically, mythologically and psychologically. And we will explore Shadow Work and why it's not an option but a necessary requirement for personal and collective evolution right now.

The Spirit of Vedic Thai Yoga Bodywork
Limited Capacity seats available

Learn the ancient Healing Art of Thailand to take care of your partner or friend with intentional, loving and nurturing touch. Vedic Thai Yoga Bodywork, like Yoga, balances and enhances on all levels, physical, emotional and mental, allowing the body's intelligence to respond and inspire healing itself. You'll watch demonstrations and practice giving and receiving with a partner. You do not have to be a professional to participate and learn. The only prerequisites are the willingness to give and receive. You will learn: - How to apply a basic sequence of elegant and transforming Thai-Yoga Bodywork asanas and techniques, including transitions. - How to use breath, meditation, mantra, bandha, and yogic techniques to enhance the quality of the session. - To harmonize Shakti/Chi to balance mental energy, enhance the immune system, and stimulate higher consciousness. While we do compress, stretch and manipulate particular muscles and other parts of the physical body, our focused intention is the underlying, unseen energetic body. Being under the hood so to speak, this energetic component is running the entire system which is directly connected to our conscious awareness as humans. This is where real transformative therapy takes place. Join David and Leah for your next step of healing by learning to give to another and receive joyfully! Vedic Thai Massage (Nuad Borarn) or Assisted Yoga is viewed as a martial art of healing and is reported to manifest instant positive results. In Thailand, bodywork is utilized medicinally as a cherished and revered indulgence to remedy the prominent social ailments such as emotional stress and physical inertia. Vedic Thai Massage is Love! It is a sacred offering, a conscious contribution to self-realization and soul revelation, the goal and purpose of life. Deliberate and skillful intentions of joyful communication, Thai Yoga massage produces profound pleasure and inspiring tranquility both physically and psychologically by replacing old restricted energy patterns within the body/spirit. This dignified and communally cherished art parallels in sophistication results obtained by other modern medical options. Why Vedic? Sri Dhanvantari appears in the Vedas as the father of all healing, carrying healing nectar. Sri Dhanvantari is an incarnation of the preserver energy, Vishnu. The Su Darshana Chakra, the disc you see on our materials, is Vishnu's protective discus, symbolizing peace, protection, and prosperity. The Ancient Vedic culture of Asia was the progenitor of modern-day India and Thailand, which is why we honor Sri Dhanvantari as the original source of Thai Yoga Bodywork. - Mukti Michael Buck, founder of Vedic Conservatory
