The purpose of Yin yoga is to grow the body flexible and promote healing, to develop our flow of energy, and to enliven our innate ability to move with fluidity, power, and grace. Paulie’s approach to yoga is about following our own individual path. Paulie gently guides students in opening to their intuitive hearts and discovering the artist within, and in trusting and expressing their own unique way of being in the practice.
In this training participants will explore both the yin and yang aspects of yoga postures that are inspired by the movements of animals and that activate the elemental forces contained within our energetic field. Through this process we fully engage our connection with the natural world, we awaken to our spontaneous and playful spirit, we transcend the boundaries of assumed limitations and learn more than just a technique for doing yoga, we learn a way of being yoga, of living it in our day to day lives. We can then bring these gifts to the lives of those we touch.

Pricing for Session 1: $1,350 if paid before April 15, 2019
$1,500 if paid after April 15th.

In this spontaneous and playful practice we step aside from traditional asana and into the realm of postures like the crab, seahorse, and T-Rex which allow the body to gain flexibility and strength while freeing the mind of mechanical nature and self limiting thoughts.

Remember how being imaginative just came naturally when you were a child? Remember how exhilarating it was to feel being fully alive in your body, to freely rejoice in all your senses, to laugh and shout, to jump and dance, and to play pretend without any rules?

Paulies liberating approach to yoga shows us how to reawaken our childlike playful spirit. Paulie makes learning fun: and when learning is fun it becomes almost effortless.

In this session we will go beyond the rigidly timed and passive postures so commonly taught in yin classes. We will practice both still and dynamic postures for developing core strength and balance, and the flowing of postures in smooth transitions from pose to pose.

Shadow Yoga Basics

RICHMOND DICKSON

9aM-4PM, SEPT 9 - SEPT 7, 2019

SEPT 2019

Register & More Information Here

The Shadow Yoga Basics workshop provides students with an opportunity to learn or review the Shadow Yoga warm-ups called "dasha chalanam" and "jiva chalanam," as well as the fundamentals of the Shadow Yoga style. This course is a prerequisite for all other Shadow Yoga Prelude Forms. All levels are welcome.
 
Lead by Richmond Dickson.

$200 (originally $250)

Shadow Yoga was founded by Zhander Remete, and is a hatha yoga system that utilizes rhythmic breathing, bandhas (energetic locks) and the system of vital junctions called marma. Its intention is to free the peripheral body of its energetic obstructions and to ignite the inner fire for healing and meditation. Shadow Yoga consists of circular and spiraling movements, warrior stances, and sun salutation forms that prepare students to safely and effectively practice the more advanced limbs of hatha yoga.

A yin/yang yoga and mindfulness workshop with interpersonal
awareness practices 
Asana, Pranayama, Insight Meditation, Compassion Meditation,
Contemplative Dialogues


In this 8-hour workshop Sarah will encourage us to develop and/or deepen our commitment to a balanced daily practice that nourishes not only our body and breath, but our hearts and minds as well. Each class will give us the opportunity to highlight these four themes individually, so that we might braid them together inside us as a holistic mandala (or sanctuary of practice) that we can enter daily for renewed inspiration and insight.

The first hour of each class Sarah will focus on salient features of Buddhist Mindfulness meditation with both lecture and practice. Through clarifying and highlighting the basic tenets of a skillful practice, Sarah will help make meditation a joyous endeavor, reminding us of its essential place in our lives.

The meditation practice will be followed by various Yin/Yang asana sequences that encourage stability and mobility, grounded-ness and ease, enabling us to merge what Taoists call heaven and earth within our own bodies and minds, while cultivating the sensitive energy body simultaneously

The last section will be given to heart based practices mingled with interpersonal dialogues. In Buddhism, these qualities of loving kindness and compassion are suggested as having boundless possibilities within each of us. To initiate the proliferation of these values in our personal experience, we can lean our hearts and minds in these directions through contemplation on these themes, as well as daring to share interpersonal awareness practices out loud. Please come with an interest in sharing some of these personal themes in dialogue with
others.

Insight Yoga and Psychological Inquiry:
An Integrated approach to Yoga

with Sarah Powers

May 9-10

registration details coming soon

MAY 2020

Each class will be a complete experience, but these practices also build on each other. For this reason Sarah suggests that you sign up for both  days in order to develop a self practice with a clear understanding of these diverse yet interrelated disciplines.

Sarah Powers began teaching in 1987. She is the founder and author of Insight Yoga, which interweaves the insights and practices of Yoga, Buddhism, Taoism, and Transpersonal Psychology into an integral practice to discover and enliven the body, heart and mind. Her yoga style blends both a Yin sequence of floor poses to enhance the meridian and organ systems, combined with an alignment-based slow flow or Yang practice, influenced by Viniyoga, Ashtanga, Iyengar teachings, and QI gong.

Sarah feels that enlivening the physical and pranic bodies, as well as learning to meet our psychological reactivity is paramount for preparing one to deepen and nourish insights into one’s essential nature – a natural state of awareness. She has completed level 3 of Internal Family Systems Therapy training and has been a student of Transpersonal Psychology for 28 years. She also draws from her indepth training in the Vipassana, Tantric and Dzogchen practices of Buddhism.

Sarah and her husband Ty Powers co-direct the Insight Yoga Institute, which offers 500+ hour trainings blending yoga, buddhism and psychology.
