Sunday – 1:00pm – 3:30pm – Solar Acrobatic Workshop

Melissa will drill, skill and work our core in order to prepare us for basing and flying and the most encouraging role of spotting. These roles make up the beautiful community of 3 that will allow you to soar to new heights. All levels of experience welcome and no partner necessary. Being comfortable in exploring (but not necessarily having mastered) inversions: headstand/handstand is helpful and will help you progress more quickly.

Sunday- 4:00pm – 6:30pm – Lunar Healing Arts Workshop

We willl explore the lunar side of the AcroYoga practice with floating therapeutic postures where everyone has an opportunity to base, spot and fly. Thai Yoga massage will top off our afternoon of therapeutic bliss. All levels of experience welcome and no partner necessary.

Monday- 9:00am-10:30am – Dynamic Yoga Therapy: The Core

Join us for a slow flow sequence designed to strengthen your core muscles and demystify the secret in finding your “root lock” or Mula Bandha. Integrated with asana, the Mula Bandha draws energy into the body and the spine . This class will compliment the weekend workshops as we discover the benefits of strengthening and utilizing our core muscles and specific locks within our bodies to lessen the pressure in our shoulders, wrists and upper body. Suitable for all levels and guaranteed to leave you feeling powerfully connected to the prana within.

Monday- 5:45pm-7:45pm – Restorative yoga for the heart and soul.

Discovering the art of being. In our busy world of doing, allow yourself to simply be. Discover an unhurried approach to yoga. In a world where we are in a rush to get it all in, renew your love for simplicity and ease that a mindful yoga practice can bring. This class is suitable for all levels and includes a movement warmup, followed by longer held postures designed to restore the art of being.

Tuesday- 9:00am-10:30am – Dynamic Yoga Therapy: Shoulders and Wrists

Join us for a playful exploration through inversions followed by healing strategies for the shoulders, neck and wrists. You will not only come away with a clearer understanding of the anatomy of moment and relationship of the shoulders and wrists, but enjoy a fun, exploratory practice that will give you tools for making inversions accessible. Discover therapeutic ways to restore balance to the upper body.

SEMINAR SCHEDULE

 

Friday, July 11, 6 – 8:30pm

Yoga and the Science of Willpower

Will is at the heart of what it is to be human. When ignored, willpower diminishes. Now modern science
is discovering what Yoga has known all along… that willpower can be strengthened and controlled.
Just 20 minutes of pranayama improves will power in clinical trials, and in as little as 11 hours of meditation
over a few weeks led to measurable changes in brain structure leading to a variety of positive outcomes
including improvements in will power. This workshop uses these recent breakthroughs from the science
of willpower to help explain how Yoga works, and to compliment and strengthen traditional yoga approaches
to strengthening willpower.

 

Saturday, July 12, 9am – 12pm

Core Power in Asana

Very few students in Yoga understand and appreciate the power of their core. In this workshop we will develop
greater awareness, control and strength in our core. Then we will use a variety of core techniques, including
zipping, cinching, and mula bandha, to transform our asana practice. We will learn how to initiate movement
from our core, which helps prevent joint damage like bursitis and tendonitis. We will experience how proper
use of the core stabilizes our standing poses, protects our lower back in back bends, and energizes our
downward facing dogs. We will also explore subtle core engagement as a meditative technique to help shift
our center from the head to the abdomen, anchoring our consciousness in our creative center.

 

Saturday, July 12, 1:30 – 4:30pm

Meditation and the 7 Chakras

The 7 Chakras provide a profound model of human consciousness that dates back between three to five thousand
years. By understanding this system we gain insights into our own consciousness and behavior and that of our
friends and colleagues. But more importantly, the Chakra model provides a road map for our spiritual growth
and evolution. This workshop will provide a solid overview of the psychological underpinnings of the chakras,
show how modern psychology and medicine is built upon this ancient foundational model, and teach you
meditation and pranayama techniques to help you begin to experience and crontrol your creative energy as
it moves through the subtle channels of your body, and works it way up through the 7 chakras.

 

Sunday, July 13, 1:30 – 4pm

Denying the Status Quo in Yoga

In our yoga practice, all too often, we mentally tune out. We are content with the pose as it is, and so we quit looking
for improvement and our mind wanders. It often proves difficult to stay completely focused in the present moment
while practicing yoga. When our practice slips into auto-pilot, we no longer receive the full benefits of our practice,
physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. We are likely over time to lose interest in our practice or worse yet
injure ourselves. Denying the Status Quo is a simple technique to stay more fully engaged in your practice and
results in greater progress and satisfaction. Rather than accepting an asana as it is, we deny our selves that luxury
and force the question, if I had to change, would I go deeper or back off? In order to answer this question and act
on it, we are forced to pay attention to our practice.
