Touching Infinity - Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor
Limited Capacity seats available

The subtle layers of movement and form 
When we open the scope of our practice to an approach that is more of a process than a technique or formula for alignment then yoga postures, mind and movement merge together into an expansive, liberating form that literally feels as though we are connected to infinity. In this class, working with postures found the in the Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga system of practice, we will explore the subtle layers of movement and form that facilitate this feeling and form. All levels welcome.

Befriending Pain with Yin Yoga & Loving-Kindness - Whit Hornsberger
Limited Capacity filling up

Befriending Pain with Yin Yoga & Loving-Kindness

There is a primordial drive within all living-beings to be free of pain, to move away from discomfort of the mind and body. This habitual, reactive pattern, is in-turn exacerbated by a culture which demonizes pain, pushing upon us innumerable quick-fix strategies to relieve our discomfort, substantiating the unrelenting drive to get-away from anything that feels uncomfortable.


And although we may be well-intentioned in our attempts to move away from these unpleasant states, it is paradoxically the aversive reaction itself which perpetuates the pain and impedes our ability to move beyond it.

But what if we could look upon pain, not as an enemy, or something we have to get-away from. But as a teaching, as a catalyst for healing and spiritual growth? What would happen if, instead of running away from pain, we befriended it?

Through integrating the passive postures of Yin Yoga with the Buddhist practice of metta, or loving-kindness meditation, we will reframe our relationship to mental and bodily pain, gifting ourselves the ability to find refuge within the epicenter of that which the mind has been running from since time immemorial - an imperative first-step towards healing the mind and body.

The Divine Romance: Kundalini Yoga - Amir Jaan
Limited Capacity filling up

The Divine Romance

We will explore the physical and spiritual anatomy of the five major tenants of Kundalini Yoga practice: Pranayama (breathing techniques), Mudrah ( special hand gestures) Bhanda’s (energetic body locks) Static & Rhythmic Asana (physical posturing) and Meditation (the art of focusing ones attention).
These disciplines are woven together in the formal practice of Kriya Yoga, to cultivate a powerful harmonic frequency. It flows freely in a majestic figure of eight between the body and the mind, giving birth to the observable process of accelerated evolution.

Inner Peace, the Natural State - Praful & Vimal
Limited Capacity filling up

Inner Peace - the Natural State
Bathe in sound - heal yourself - get rejuvinated

Inner peace seems to be what most people are looking for in life. Yet the moments when we experience such peace appear to be rare and short – something unwanted happens and the feeling is gone. We tend to think that before we can be at peace, we need to first arrange, order and control the outer circumstances – so we spend tremendous amounts of time and energy on this, but never seem to quite get there. instead, we feel exhausted.
The good news is, this state of peace is our original nature; it is always available and is highly relaxing and rejuvenating. We love to take you on an inner journey and give you a taste of this unconditional peace. Living life from this place shifts the focus – the need to optimize our lives and every situation disappears.
This evening will be resting, relaxing and healing, with guidance, meditation and live music.

A Drop of Nectar - Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor
Limited Capacity filling up

A Drop of Nectar: Internal Forms, Breath and Mudra
True nectar is said to be composed of compassion, insight and humor. It is released from the root of the palate when inhaling pattern of prana and the exhaling pattern of apana unite to form mulabandha into a proper mudra. Ashtanga Vinyasa is the continuous cultivation of this fine ambrosial drink/ essence by following a thread of its flavor through and between postures, breaths, thoughts and techniques. In this class we will explore opening and then releasing vivid, internal (organic) anatomy patterns in sync with the breath. This method fully uses the imagination to feel complementary full body patterns which – when interfaced with each other - open the central channel. The repeated practice of these internal forms eventually frees us from that very same imagination as it gives (technical skill with) a taste of kindness and humor. All levels welcome.
