Friday, October 20th, 2017 - Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

Dive in and explore yoga asana, meditation, and pranayama. The yoga sutras tell us that for millennia yoga has been used as a practice to observe the fluctuations of the mind and cultivate the experience of equilibrium, whatever the present moment brings. As we move from posture to posture, our goal is to find steadiness and sweetness, strengthening our ability to flow with inner and outer change.We will begin by slowly opening up the body and then turning up the heat with asana. After a creative, invigorating, and uplifting practice, we will cool down with restorative poses, pranayama, and meditation, leaving the body stretched, happy, and relaxed. You go home with a greater capacity for flowing with the ever-changing demands and opportunities that life presents. Friday to Sunday (2 nights). Tuition: $395 (not including accommodation) 10.5 Hours. CE credits available.

"Yoga has long been recognized as a spiritual and physical journey to experience life directly and be at peace. To further your journey, spend this weekend exploring asana, meditation, and pranayama with two of the nation’s most respected yoga teachers: Colleen Saidman and Rodney Yee."

We start with practices designed to slowly open the body, and then turn up the heat with asana. Finally, we cool down with restorative poses, pranayama, and meditation, leaving the body as stretched, happy, and relaxed. 

Through our practice, we also enhance the natural physical rhythms while learning how to listen to the body. We explore practices to release tension and restlessness so we can be present in our life with vigor and a sense of calm.
