Welcome to Morning Glory Yoga

Intro to Ashtanga Yoga with Jade Skinner


The term Ashtanga yoga originates in Patan- jai’s Yoga Sutras that describe the eight-limbs of Ashtanga yoga. These include yama ( socially oriented moral observances), niyama (personally oriented observances), asana (physical postures), pranayama (breath control), pratyahara (sense withdrawl), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (peace). The actual asana practice of Ashtanga yoga comes from the life and teaching of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, who dedicated his life to the dissemination of this ancient lineage.

Join Jade Skinner as she shares the teachings of Ashtanga Yoga and her passion for this beautiful practice with you. Be introduced to the history and tradition of Ashtanga Yoga as it is taught today. Learn about the three aspects that distinguish its methodology from other styles of yoga. And grace yourself with the magical beauty of Mysore Practice.

Friday (6-8pm)

Choose Joy — A fearless exploration of your central truth
{A well rounded, basic to intermediate level flow class including arm balances and inversions}
In this provocative yoga workshop, you will connect deeply to your true nature. It is Rebecca Butler’s belief and central teaching principle that joy is the quintessential foundation of our essence. Through carefully constructed sequencing, she will guide you along her spiritual trail that has led her to wholeheartedly invest in this truth. The asana (physical yoga poses) will be challenging, nourishing, sweat inducing and righteous. You will be confronted with glimmers of your edge while soothed with the certainty of grounding. You can expect standing poses, arm balances, inversions, floor work and core work, complimented by laughter, perhaps tears and definitely smiles. Indeed, exploring Avenues of Joy is truly a glorious undertaking.


Saturday (10am-12n)

Choose Magic — This is how we walk on the moon
{A clinic about arm balances and inversions}
There is no limitation. The only limitations are those that we place on ourselves. We subscribe to this prison of our awareness, recreating the same reality day after day, to prove to ourselves that we are not crazy (one of the greatest fears of our day and age — being crazy). In this workshop, we will trot carefully and mindfully to your edge — spiritually and physically. And then, we will take a deep breath and enjoy the view. For it is at this place, where with compassion, breath and kindness, we can create meaningful and lasting change. Yes, it is magic. Seamless press-ups from crow to handstand require nothing short of believing in magic. My more pragmatic students roll their eyes at this. And it’s at precisely this moment when I offer, The trees breathe what we exhale and we breathe what they exhale… You don’t believe in magic?! Come Choose Magic and see what’s really possible when we drop resistance and lean in to infinite possibility.


Sunday (10am-12n)

Choose Miracles — Shift from Fear to Love
{A playshop of softening into the moment through partner style restorative work and deep hip opening}
A miracle is defined as a shift in perspective from fear to love. In this session, we will work with great tenderness into softening and caring for the major joints via partner-style restorative yoga, long holds in deep hip openers and a sound healing session to culminate this cleanse. You will be stripped of fear, which resides in the root chakra. You will be cleared of any lingering resistance to your worthiness and awareness of the ability to Choose Joy, Choose Magic and Choose Miracles in everyday moments, no matter what the circumstances. (ONLY POSSIBLE IF YOU HAVE INTEREST IN ME BRINGING A SOUND HEALING SPECIALIST. I can also just do a simple restorative session)

Please join us for this sure to be sensational weekend with Rebecca.

In addition to owning and operating her own yoga studio, The Sanctuary Yoga Room in Fort Worth, TX, she travels teaching her empowering weekend of Choose Joy yoga workshops in varying cities all over the country, including the Telluride Yoga Festival.

It is her own purpose to help others recognize the ability to Choose Joy no matter what life offers.

In 2012, her mother passed from ALS or Lou Gehrigʼs disease. In that heart-wrenching journey, Rebecca learned that life is meant to be cherished, never squandered; movement, health and breath are righteous gifts to be celebrated, never neglected; and kindness, love and grace are the only admirable ways of being. She integrates this wisdom into her teaching, writing, speaking and daily approach to life.

Standing Postures for Core Stability and Strength 9am-11am

Morning active yoga practice that fosters supportive strength from the ground up. Find ease and stability in standing postures for a sustainable yoga practice. We will look at how our core muscles and our feet create the essential foundation for our bodies. Enjoy a long restorative savasana.

Transformational Restful Yoga for “Every” Body 1pm-3pm

Restorative Yoga, through long held, prop supported postures, teaches that even though a pose appears to be still, there is a subtler action going on that involves a symphony of breath and body that brings the entire being into a state of deep repose and release.
The benefits of a restorative yoga class include:
Powerful relaxation to access a state of pratayahara (a withdrawn state).
Restoration and exploration of the mind, body and soul in passive postures.
Clarity, connection, and a spirit of offering through ishvara pranidhana (the divine within).
Moving meditation warmup and the graceful presence accessed with long held postures.

“Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as bird wings. ~ Rumi
