There are many styles of events: multiple week series classes, workshops and retreats . Each event, by design, is intended to provide students the opportunity to experience more subject depth in a focused learning environment. These special offerings, lead by experienced teachers, focus on a particular element of yoga, giving students time to learn about specific topics, practice and integrate the new information and ask questions in a safe and welcoming environment.
Series classes provide students with a weekly class, focusing on a particular aspect of yoga. Each week new information is presented with the intent for the individual to have well rounded experience after attending all classes. Workshops are multiple class events where students can take their practice to a new level. Retreats are destination events, where students are fully immersed in learning and practicing with a group of fellow yogis. The destinations are inspiring, the food is nourishing and the community is grounding. Retreats create lasting memories that stay with you for a lifetime. As a whole, these special Events, give students a safe and welcoming environment away from the demands of their daily lives to focus on their practice and deepen their understanding of yoga..

Body of Bliss Workshop – w/ Bea Doyle – Living Gracefully with Life’s Constant of Change
Body of Bliss Workshop w/Bea Doyle – Living Gracefully with Life’s Constant of Change
Jan 18-20, 2019
Full Workshop $199 (through 1/16/19) – Individual Sessions $62 each
How do we live gracefully with life’s constant of change? Although we’re fortunate to have many avenues in this 21st century for doing so, I find that working with our physical body is the gateway in to the inner landscapes of our mind and soul. Here we navigate life’s ever changing nature with more self-awareness and an increased ability to be in the present moment.
This weekend will be grounded in soothing self-care, the playfulness of outside-the-box yoga postures and functional movement, and the curiosity of the mind. Come to replenish, come to learn, come to play, come to be in the community of the heart.
BODY OF BLISS – RESTORATIVE, PRANAYAMA, YOGA NIDRA
Fri: 1/18/2019 From: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Restorative postures, creative variations on Savasana (Corpse Pose), bring deep release in selected areas of the body using a collection of yoga props and gravity as the main tools for deep relaxation. Combined with the balancing nadi shodhana pranayama plus a guided deep relaxation narrative will contribute to a soothing down-regulation of the central nervous system and peace of mind.

Back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide, yet 95% of back issues can be addressed successfully without surgery (John Hopkins’ 2002 paper on low back pain). For the 95% of you who experience back pain like sciatica, s-i joint instability, degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, muscle spasms and more, learn how to bring your spine into it’s natural curves through releasing and strengthening techniques. You’ll develop the awareness you need to work with your back and take home techniques for keeping it healthy
SELF CARE — UPPER BODY BREATH AND BALANCE
Sat: 1/19/2019 From: 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm
In this workshop the upper body, hips to head, is brought back into balance using ball therapy and breathing practices. Dominant muscles are quieted, sleepy muscles awakened, tense muscles released, all setting the stage for proper functioning of both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems through yoga’s best breathing practices.
HAPPY HIPS — THE BALANCE OF FREEDOM AND STABILITY
Sun: 1/20/2019 From: 9:00 am – 11:30 pm
The hips are the fulcrum for movement in the body and require a balance of mobility and stability for optimal performance. This workshop offers deep myofascial release techniques, strength training and functional movement in all actions of the hip joint as we explore a variety of yoga poses and corrective exercises.
Body of BlissTM is my signature Functional Yoga Curriculum. A comprehensive conscious movement program as seen through yoga’s lens, Body of Bliss workshops address issues of mobility and build strength by having the body move in ways that are sustainable and regenerative. The practice employs a variety of yoga postures, corrective exercises, self-massage techniques, experiential anatomy, pranayama and guided visualization. The unique integration of movement topics, combined with body and ball therapy, bring a fresh, intriguing and effective approach to the yoga practice. The curriculum is appropriate for yoga teachers, yoga teacher training programs, for curious yoga students at any level, or for the tness and sports enthusiast seeking active recovery.
