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.

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

Exploring the Practice of Yoga with Charles MacInerney

Just a reminder, Charles will be at MGYS this weekend! There’s still room and we’d love your presence. Register today!

JULY 10 – 12th!

 

 

Friday, July 10th. 6:00 – 8:30pm

Fascia: Its All Connected

_Charles-MacInerney-002Throughout our lifetime most of us begin to stiffen and to shrink with age. This does not have to happen. The health our our fascia will determine the state or our body as we age. Fascia requires movement, warmth, and adequate hydration to remain healthy. We are connected together because of a vast, spider web-like network of fascia, which travels through our entire body like a heavy sweater. .  Recognition of fascia’s true significance and complexity is just spreading into the yoga community.   This workshop will explore the latest scientific understanding of fascia, both anatomy and physiology, and how to make better use of this understanding in how we practice yoga.  Happy fascia is fluid. Come learn how to make yours fluid.


 

Saturday, July 11th.  9:00am – 12:00pm

Having Fun with Assisted Yoga
_Charles-MacInerney-005Learn how to work hands on with assisted asana in a safe and fun environment. Learn how to receive and give support to each other in asanas both familiar and new. Partner work can be used to make the most challenging asanas accessible and also to make foundational poses more challenging. Assisted poses allow us to relax more deeply into stretches, and it is common for students report that they have found new levels of flexibility from this work that they did not know they were capable of. We will also use partner exercises to sharpen concentration, practice communication skills and increase our pro-prioceptive senses. You do not need a partner to attend this workshop. Most people usually come alone and then facilitators help match up partners for each exercise. This is a great way to meet new friends with shared interests.


 

Saturday, July 11th.  1:30 – 4:30pm

Yoga Nidra 

_Charles-MacInerney-004Yoga Nida, sometimes called ‘yogic sleep’, is an ancient practice that was introduced to the West by teachers like Satyananda Saraswati and Swami Rama in the 1960’s. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra can replace 4 hours of regular sleep. Yoga Nidra is typically practiced in 8 stages. After a gentle asana practice, we begin in Shavasana with a guided relaxation. Next we repeat pre-determined affirmation called a Sankalpa. The third step is called the rotation of consciousness which is followed by breath awareness. The fifth step is called the manifestation of opposites. Then we enter into creative visualization. To close, the sankalpa is repeated, before starting a very gradual return to normal consciousness.


 

Sunday, July 12th.  1:30 – 4:30pm

Yoga and Writing: (Asana Class) 
_Charles-MacInerney-001Hatha Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation are amazing tools for shifting consciousness. Learn how to combine yoga with creative writing to tap into deeper sources of inspiration. We begin with an Asana class to shut down internal dialogue and distance students from the momentum of their daily routines. Then we move into pranayama and meditation to still the mind and deepen our sense of self. Following a writing prompt, to set the mind in motion again, we write for 20-60 minutes and then form into small groups where anyone who wishes to read to the group will have an opportunity to do so. The reader can ask for feedback from the group, but only positive feedback.


 

One workshop $55

Any Two workshops $100

Any Three workshops $140

All Four workshops $175

 

Early registration (prior to June 29th) 10% discount.
