Good Vibes: Using Sound and Vibration to Return to Your Home Frequency
Limited Capacity filling up

It is well established in the yoga tradition that everything in the world is in a state of vibration, including your body. Each of us have a natural vibration or what we might call our resonance or “home frequency”. When we are in a state of health, the body has good resonance. But if our vibration comes out of resonance we get disharmony or dis-ease. The goal of this class is to set up an environment in which you can return to your “home frequency” where you feel most balanced and clear. To guide you toward this home frequency we will use multiple tools from the yoga tradition: sound, mantra, mudra, asana, pranayama, and meditation. Musical Artist Jim Beckwith will accompany the class, and this addition of sound healing can help you drop into an effortless state of relaxation, unblock stuck emotions, and rejuvenate the cells of the body. You will walk away grounded yet flying high.

Energize Chakra with Love, Joy, Peace, Compassion
Chakra is a Sanskrit word that literally means “wheel” or “turning”. These energy points can be visualized as spinning focal points that both receive and transmit energy. Through concentrating on your seven chakras, you are able to “spin” these points, thus moving energy to nourish your body and the environment. Chakras are the fundamentals to understanding the practice of Yoga. Energizing chakra with love, joy, peace, and compassion increases your energy. You consciously follow the physical direction to stimulate and balance chakras. The experiences vary to accommodate your need at that point in time. You align with Divine Consciousness in real time. You give permission to allow divine consciousness to meet you where you are in that moment. There is a broad and universal frequency that allows and encourages you to expand. The Divine Consciousness frequency then aligns with the needed healing, creating a customized healing experience. Imagine the potential within you to play in a protected and expanded space. In other words, there is direct healing, nurturing, and a protected path to personally expand in an infinite way, incorporating physics and higher vibrational realities!

Embrace the Path of Non-Attached Actions and Relationships with Karma Yoga
Limited Capacity seats available

The ancient science of Karma Yoga, first taught by Krishna in the Bhagwad Gita, compliments our physical Yoga practice of asanas, because it works on purifying our ego’s, especially, when we engage in the world, through our various relationships. It includes consciously adopting ego-less attitudes and initiating five egoless actions daily, that purify our minds and motivations. Once you begin to lead your life, informed by the ancient path of Karma Yoga, you will begin to see the magic of life unfold, and what happens when we no longer make it always about our small self and its uncontrolled desires. We become representatives of a greater intelligence working through us. We no longer seek to control outcomes. Karma Yoga actions are never selfish or self-absorbed. The only benefits our ego draws are satisfaction and peace of mind. We find all the blessings of the universe in our very own homes, relationships and daily interactions when we begin to alleviate the suffering of our cohorts on planet earth, and to nurture other forms of consciousness and existence. The essential ingredient of Karma Yoga is the attitude of non-control or non-attachment. This flowing, accepting, giving attitude reveals tranquility and great joy from within. Vedic master teacher Acharya Shunya shines the light on a timeless spiritual path, facilitating enduring affirmative transformation in consciousness and living joyfully in the present moment.

The Science of Mindfulness
Limited Capacity seats available

We've all been told about the importance of slowing down the mind through meditation or another type of mindfulness exercise. Do we know why it's important or what is happening when we do?  Craig's logical mind wanted to know more about what is actually happening. This talk reviews that research.  Jammed packed from start to finish... We opening and close with powerful Visualization Exercises and in between, Craig walks us through a riveting exploration of recent science. Craig's presence on stage is entertaining and captivating.  In a fun and practical way, we will review several scientific studies completed over the past 75 years. These studies reveal a new correlation of data which exposes exactly what is happening in our bodies and our mind when we close our eyes to meditate.  Answers await. Let's review "The Science of Mindfulness."

Couple these practices with gratitude and you are sure to expand. Leah will encourage students to take home the practice of gratitude, whether it is by speaking, writing or visualizing.

DEMYSTIFYING KUNDALINI YOGA
Limited Capacity filling up

This workshop goes into depth, explaining the reasons why, in Kundalini Yoga, we use mantras (chanting), mudras (hand positions), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), and drishti (mental or eye focus). Each aspect of a kriya (set) can contain any and all of these practices, combining them to create a powerful tool for personal transformation and healing. Raminderpreet will then take the class through a full Kriya that links all these aspects, offering an experience of greater awareness, peace and connection to self and others. Kundalini Yoga is an ancient practice that was once considered secret before Yogi Bhajan brought it to the western world in the 1960’s. Come learn the science: the physiological, neurological, and psychological discoveries that empower us to create real change in our lives.

Limited Capacity seats available

A casual, positive and uplifting presentation focusing on the good Earth news you will not hear in the news! We will touch on ancient prophesies, but focus more on how we changed many of the prophesies, from doom, gloom and “me” to Golden Age and “we”.

Teachings from a variety of disciplines and topics, we will clarify keys to the shift: yoga, meditation, integrity, compassion, awareness, overcoming fear and pain, integrating our shadows, emotional intelligence, moving from head to heart, and more. Learn how to recognize and overcome generational patterns, beliefs and false limits, and raise your energy vibration. We will include some gentle movement and meditation, but mostly this playshop is discussion and satsang / community.

In Repair: Using Yoga to Heal Addictive Behaviors
Limited Capacity seats available

At some point in our lives we’ve all encountered trauma, and while some of us have managed to process it and move forward without lasting implications, others of us have not. Unresolved trauma shows up in many forms, frequently in some form of addiction (to a substance or a behavior) and can also manifest physically. Yoga provides us all of the tools we need to repair the root cause of our addictions. We can learn to be gentle with ourselves, to stay present, to feel gratitude and to ultimately feel and heal. In this workshop you’ll learn some of the latest neuroscience about trauma, addictions and the brain, how yoga is becoming an accepted healing tool in cutting edge trauma and addiction therapy, and most importantly how you can use this to improve your life. Be prepared to explore movement (asana), breathwork (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana) with compassionate curiosity. This workshop is suitable for everyone, from beginners to experienced teachers who wish to learn about how to help themselves and others overcome addictive behavior and the effects of trauma.

Surrendering into the Relationship Between Yin and Yang, Sun and Moon
In the story of Qi Gong, all Creation comes forth from a Oneness of Infinite Potential. To form Creation, this Infinite Oneness extends itself as three interrelating forces: Yin Qi (contraction), Yang Qi (expansion), and a divine intelligence that orchestrates the interrelating of these forces. But the story continues, for the Infinite Oneness and Creation then give all of themselves to one another to create all life, which includes you and I. We are this joining or interrelating between the Oneness of Infinite Potential (our consciousness) and Creation (our being or body). We are both consciousness and being-ness. This brings us to the practice of Qi Gong, for simply put, Qi Gong is the practice of interrelating or, in other words, the practice of relationship. The primary relationship within us is between our consciousness (soul or spirit) and our being (body). Another relationship within us is the interrelating taking place between the Yin Qi (moon) and Yang Qi (sun) forces that form our body. And then there are the relationships between the vibrational layers of our body. Because the Qi of Creation vibrates at different rates or frequencies, Creation has given us a multilayered body …… mental, emotional, energetic, and physical. All of these layers, too, are in relationship with one another. The purpose of the keys and principles handed down to us through the lineages of our practices is to remind us Who We Are and guide us in navigating these many relationships within us. As we work with these keys and principles, we start to remember that all of these relationships are orchestrated by the divine intelligence and power that is Creation. The practice is always showing us how to open ourselves to Her so that she may do her work (gong) through us. We are learning to let go of, and release our attachments to all beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that impede the flow within our internal relationships. In this way we open the pathways running through us that connect Heaven to Earth; that connect the Oneness of Infinite Possibilities to us and our world.

Body Love: Creating a Respectful and Kind Connection between Body and Mind
Limited Capacity seats available

The practice of yoga is to still the fluctuations of the mind. Yet to really settle the mind, we must begin in the body. The body can often feel like a “minefield” when we really drop into it, as stored in our tissues are “our issues”. Trauma, memories, and emotion are all housed in the cells of our body. Whatever your current relationship to your body, this class is designed to foster deep respect for the body and deep listening to its messages. Using pranayama, slow and mindful asana, meditation, and sankalpa, we will work on allowing the body to catch up with the mind.

Deepening Your Spiritual Practice Off the Mat - Vedic Sadhana for Self Enquiry
Limited Capacity seats available

Are you ready to deepen your spiritual practice off the yoga mat? While Sage Patanjali is renowned for the 8-step path of Yoga, there exist even older disciplines of mind purification from India that beautifully facilitate Yogic Sadhana. This class will introduce the Non-dualism (Advaita) based 9 Step spiritual discipline known as Sadhana Chatushtayam, that originated in ancient Vedic Upanishadic lineages, and was later systematized by Adi Shankarachaya in the 8th century. This cognitive thought-based practice remains relatively unknown in the west. For Yogis and Yoginis who struggle to maintain their inner equipoise or samatvam in daily life, these rich teachings provide a different pathway to purify the thoughts, make better life choices, and calm the ego. These practices support us to stay centered and focused on our spiritual goals, while participating fully and gracefully in the world. Ultimately this sadhana prepares us to receive Self knowledge as adhikari – qualified students of Jnana Yoga. Teacher Aparna Amy Lewis, a longtime student of Vedic scholar and lineage holder Acharya Shunya, and member of Veda Sarayu Sampradaya, will be sharing her lineage’s hidden treasure, the Sadhana Chatushtayam, as well as “spiritual case studies”, and her own journey of Self Enquiry as a student of a Vedic Gurukulam. For students who want to go deeper, copies of Aparna’s book Starting Your Spiritual Path (Jan. 2019) will be available.

Embodied Posture Methodology
Limited Capacity seats available

Join Stacy & Dave Dockins for a short discussion and 90 minute flow style practice in which they will guide you through the Embodied Posture Methodology approach to postural alignment. If you are looking to design a practice that fits your body and supports life-long functional wellness, this class is for you. Embodied Posture Methodology, or EPM, empowers you to align yoga postures to best suit your uniqueness. Through over 25 years of studying the human body and teaching yoga, Stacy Dockins developed this innovative approach that integrates bio-individuality and long-term, sustainable functional wellness. Combining body awareness, science, and exploration, Stacy provides practical information you can immediately apply on your mat to get the most out of your practice. They will share their methodology of presenting postures as a collection of movement actions, enabling you to skillfully deconstruct and reconstruct them for your maximum benefit. Their exploratory cues will guide you to experience various sensations available in the posture so that you can use your mat as a vehicle for returning back home into your body. Whether you are a student or a teacher, EPM will show you how to critically approach postural alignment. Yoga poses will be more accessible and effective than ever before. Most importantly, you will cultivate the tool of Embodiment, the ability to tune in to what is arising from within your own body.

LEVITYoGA – Intuition, Balance, and Connection
Limited Capacity seats available

We all share a desire for joy, and seek experiences that produce freedom, gratitude, and light-heartedness. When we realize this in our lives, our world is seen more clearly, our relationships we feel more authentically, and we learn more about ourselves through connection to others and the natural world. This workshop will awaken intuitive ways to find balance and softness in your practice, with an appropriate lack of seriousness, opening you to opportunities of Levity physically (lightness of being) and psychologically (lightness of heart) in the most refreshing and enlightening ways. This type of practice has a profound affect on your nervous and immune systems, allowing the fullest potential of your inherent natural healing abilities.

Working with Difficult Emotions
Limited Capacity seats available

Everyone has had the experience of feeling controlled by strong emotions, which can lead to further difficulties. How can we learn to work with the wisdom inherent in these emotions without letting them do harm to ourselves or others? If we consider our own experience, we usually realize that trying to "control" our emotions doesn't help in the long run, nor does acting out based on them. In Vajrayana Buddhism it is said that emotions have the co-emergent properties of both wisdom and confusion. How can we learn to separate them so that we are using the wisdom without acting out the confusion? This session will give practice with several contemplative practices from Buddhist traditions to help us learn to work with our emotions skillfully. We don't need to demonize our difficult emotions, nor do we need to be controlled by them. The practices offered are powerful, and range in difficulty (over and above the inherent difficulty of trying to learn new emotional habits), but there should be something for everyone. Warning: These practices put us into direct contact with difficult and unresolved emotions, and this will not be the right space for helping people to cope with what may arise. If you may need more support than you can give yourself, please make a plan for that.

After Awakening: Staying Awake
Limited Capacity seats available

Have you “awakened”? It’s happening for more and more people, coming to consciousness, beyond mere beliefs, as spiritual beings, as unique rays of the one loving light. It’s an awesome turning point in life and changes everything for anyone who experiences it. And it’s key to transforming our lives and our world.

Awakening can feel like a transcendent point of arrival, yet it is also the beginning of a new and humbling devotional practice: staying awake. In this session, we will explore what it means to stay awake and what it takes to do so. It is your ongoing awareness and healing of the subliminal energy patterns of outworn emotions and beliefs that is necessary to your staying conscious and free of those patterns and the drama it attracts. Awakening doesn’t automatically do this for you. Rather, just as asanas require attention and presence to your physical body, awakening empowers you to attend to and be present with your emotional and other bodies. Practice, healing and time bring mastery and more joy.

In a guided meditation, you will bring awareness to your chakras from the vantage points of awakened and un-awakened and receive a blessing for your evolutionary transformation.

Moon Cycle Asana

Women have known since the dawn of time that we are connected to the moon, so why doesn’t our yoga practice reflect that beautiful cycle of energy? Let’s explore how to shift your practice from day to day, week to week, to follow the ups and downs of energy flow each month. Beginning with a basic overview of the progression of the Moon’s cycle, and how to chart it, we’ll then dive into what that does for your body. From the low and intuitive energy of the New Moon, to the high and powerful energy of the Full Moon, and back again, our bodies and the way they move directly correlate to this path of the Moon in the heavens. After we have established what the cycle of the Moon feels like without and within, we will then experience a mini yoga class of a number of different styles of yoga that can directly compliment that flow.

Experiencing The power and heart of the White Buffalo and White Buffalo Calf Woman
Limited Capacity seats available

After attempting to make a homeopathic remedy from the frequency of a pregnant White Buffalo in Flagstaff, I discovered that the one I had made from her shed fur carried powerful highly spiritual frequencies. These were best transmitted during meditation. Their blessings and effects have amazed me and others. Many, including myself, actually felt the presence and blessings of White Buffalo Calf Woman, and an amazing peace and love opening the heart chakra. Since then I have told Her story (White Buffalo Calf Woman) and used the spray in many groups and ceremonies. In this session we will explore my story with Her, Her story, and then Her Essence with the special mist Essence that opens us to her magic. Everyone is blown away with the experience- even those who have never meditated. Her Essence also has strong healing properties for pain, and tight, sore muscles and joints. Spraying it topically makes certain yoga postures easier for those who have problems with them too. while best used during meditation, it can also be used for fussy children and adults out of sorts with their heart chakras! The presentation will include  a meditation with the Essence mist for everyone, ending with a healing for the planet in the true spirit of the White Buffalo and her message of unity and the healing of Mother Earth.

From Interoception to Performance and Back Again: The Trauma-Sensitive Turn
Limited Capacity seats available

Only a hundred years ago, traditional yoga instruction was transmitted orally, usually to one student at a time. The focus was on the psycho-spiritual realm, accessed through interoception: our natural talent for registering internal sensations. The instructor's role was to guide the student towards an awareness of feelings and perceptions, and how they can be channeled or shifted by posture and breathing. The early 20th century saw a colonial and technological shift to visual media as a primary pedagogical tool, and this changed everything. Demonstration and performance quickly began to dominate the teaching of physical yoga -- and the bodies doing it. Photography became a means of isolating, cataloguing and commodifying postures for mass consumption. Every citizen of Instagram knows all about how this can feel, whether good or bad. Or -- how it doesn't feel like anything, because visual epistemology overrides interoception. However: old ways are coming back through new (but also old) ideas. "How do these postures feel?" -- is once again becoming the dominant question, along with: "Is this functional, or is it aesthetic?" and: "Can I do yoga as though no one is watching?" The trauma-sensitive movement caps it all off by asking us all to consider yoga as a means for healing and restoring internal agency. Things these days seem to be looking up -- or in.

I have been studying Yoga and Tantra since 1995.

Being in the presence of this great teacher gave me a glimpse into the true power of Yoga.

Sunrise Sun Salutation
Limited Capacity seats available

The best time to do the sun salutation is in the early morning when the sun is between the anahata chakra (at the heart) and ajnachakra (between the eyebrows). Surya means “the sun” and namaskar means “bow or prostration.” In ancient times, surya namaskar was a bhakti, or devotional practice. It was practiced while repeating 12 mantras, thanking the sun for the qualities it gives, allowing us to live on this planet.

If we do the sun salutation when the sun is low in the sky, directly facing the sun, we will feel the sun directly touching the different chakras, awakening them. It can be a very empowering experience. The whole process becomes a give-and-take with the sun. It can be practiced with intentions and devotion. Each graceful pose connects us with the sun and moves the sun’s prana, or shakti, (energy) through our chakras to awaken our own inner energy.

The 12 postures in the Sivananda sequence performed while facing the low sun make sense energetically. In the first posture, pranamasana, we gather the sun’s rays in front of heart. In the next, hasta utthanasana, we can feel the sun entering our heart. In the third posture, padahastasana, we offer our breath and a bow to the sun as the sun warms our lower back. In the fourth, ashwa sanchalasana, we can feel the sun opening our throat chakra to sweeten our words. In the next, kumbhakasana, we line up with the sun, becoming a channel of light. In the sixth and ultimate pose, ashtanga namaskar, we have eight parts of the body on the earth with the manipura chakra (at the solar plexus) in the air to charge up our solar plexus. And in the next pose, bhujangasana, we feel the sun touching between the eyebrows at ajna chakra, opening our intuition.

In this workshop we will learn the 12 steps of the sequence and learn the connection with our own energy centers, see how they can awaken our spirituality with the use of mantras.

Come As You Are: A Workshop to Empower You to Connect to Your Authentic Self
Limited Capacity seats available

The Tantric practice sees all aspects of life as a form of consciousness. Inherent in each being is a divine spark that is perfection at its essence. As we grow and develop, we lose that sense of connection to our most authentic self and believe that we have to become someone or something different than who we are internally. In this workshop, Sarah will create a safe space for you to start to look at that narrative of “not good enough” and apply a new paradigm using Tantric tools and techniques. Learn to welcome the present moment as it is, experiencing images, sensations, thoughts, and emotions not as barriers to pure consciousness, but as pathways to enhancing it. Accompanied by the soothing and harmonizing vibrations recorded by Aya and Tyler, this elevating practice will leave you intrinsically tuned in to your true self.

Asanas as a Path to Compassion and Self-Acceptance with Karen Abbot
Limited Capacity seats available

Session Title: Asanas as a Path to Compassion and Self-Acceptance

Session Description: Our relationship with ourselves is the foundation to our life – our
emotional states, our relationships with others, our successes/accomplishments.
With asana practice there is no hiding out if we allow it. Our tightness, body rolls,
frustrations, and injuries will present themselves. We can restrict our awareness by
judging our condition with an idea of how things should be OR open to freedom and
inner joy and wisdom by noticing with acceptance. Awareness transforms our
internal state and our bodies and brings us to that “No Problem” open state. This
practice of awareness without judgment can be carried into all yoga styles and into
living with Freedom rather than Resistance.

Bio: Practicing and teaching yoga is my time for presence and being open to what shows
up. It happens without force or struggle. Gratitude, acceptance, light-heartedness
naturally expands to that “no problem state.” This is what I encourage in my
students. I’m blessed to have the guidance of amazing teachers and lineages, ranging
from Gentle Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yin, Restorative, Anusara, Bikram, and
AcroYoga over the past 40 plus years. My teaching blends these styles as needed. In
addition, I offer private Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy and Interactive Guided
Imagery sessions to connect with trust and inner wisdom.

Requirements & Preparation: Mobility & fitness level: All participants must be capable of hiking 2-3 miles on uneven surfaces as well as navigate various gradients of terrain without the assistance of a walking aid or third party. Each participant must maintain a current health level that is conducive to hiking at 4000 + elevation without preexisting health conditions that could jeopardize the safety of self or others.

ClimateYogi: Healing Our Relationship to the Earth
Human activity is rapidly changing the Earth’s climate, with major implications for all life on Earth. It’s easy to be confused, uncertain about what to do, or overwhelmed by the magnitude of the issue. What does Yoga, with its roots back in the time before industrialized civilization, have to say about our situation? Quite a bit, as it turns out.  From the lessons of Krishna to Arjuna on the battlefield about the imperative of action and the folly of trying to turn away from our dharma and the greatest challenges that face us, to the 8 limbs of Yoga found in the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali that include the ethical principles of the yamas and niyamas, Yoga, in its richness of physical and mental practices, has a great deal to offer us as we face this great challenge of our time – Climate Change. Through asana, pranayama, and meditation, we’ll experience our connection to the causes of climate change, and learn how our yoga practice can help us be a powerful force to bring Earth’s climate back into balance.

Does Yoga Support Social Justice Work? No and Yes.
Limited Capacity seats available

The Bhagavad Gita was the favourite book of both Gandhi and his assassin. European fascist movements of the 1930s were fascinated with yoga. And even today, practicing yoga is not a reliable predictor of one's political persuasion. The Yoga Sutras will not teach you about reproductive rights, rape culture or white privilege. The Hatha Yoga texts are in no way feminist. Therefore, is it a mistake to believe that practicing yoga makes you a better citizen, or ally? In this discussion we'll explore how social justice work really begins with education that comes from beyond the yoga mat. And, how those who are working within the social justice movement really can trust yoga practice to help build resilience.

RE-MIND: Yoga For A More Resilient Mind
Limited Capacity seats available

Over half of Americans report more stress in their lives than five years ago. Worse, this stress is correlated with increased mental health problems, and one in five American adults, about 42.5 million people, will suffer from depression and/or anxiety in the next year. The philosophies and practices of Yoga provide a time-honored approach for healing the mind, and creating lasting emotional well being and freedom. And current scientific research is finally supporting what yogis have known for centuries: Yoga improves mood, decreases stress, and reduces depression and anxiety. This yoga intensive, taught by a psychologist and yoga teacher, will teach how yoga is a powerful intervention for not only improving mental health but and also cultivating what is best within ourselves. This course is ideal for health professionals (physicians, psychologists, nurses, social workers, therapists) wanting to integrate yoga into their healing work, for yoga therapists, yoga teachers, and anyone wanting increased emotional well being. In this workshop we will: • Review the current research and hypothesized change mechanisms that support the clinical value of yoga techniques for mental health • Contrast yoga vs modern medicine’s view on mental health • Understand the 6 attributes of well-being we all contain, and the 3 limiting beliefs that block our connection with our highest self • Learn and practice the key poses, breath practices, mudras, and meditations that you can quickly implement to shift mood

Yoga and Qi Gong Practice: Timeless Wisdom for Navigating the Experience of Life
Limited Capacity seats available

Our experience of life now is ….. well, let me say, “challenging.” We are in the throes of a changing time. It is a time of questioning the meanings and purposes of our lives and the roles we have taken on to survive and thrive. We are seeing the qualities of limitation and separation that are inherent to the underlying belief structure of our present paradigm. And we are beginning to understand and accept that the attitudes and behaviors arising from these beliefs are destroying the earth, our outer environment, and our lives, our inner environment. We cannot continue to seek our meaning, purpose, value, and identity in this paradigm. We must find different beliefs; new meanings, new purposes, new roles. I think all of us have been praying, asking for guidance and help as we seek a new way of being. As it says in Mathew, “Ask, and it shall be given you …, Knock; and it shall be opened unto you.” I believe that it is by design that the practices of Yoga and Qi Gong have come into our present experiences. For these, in their essence, are practices in consciousness. It is in consciousness that we are aware of our beliefs and choose the beliefs we hold as our truth. These beliefs form our reality; they become our experiences of life! Though our practice begins in the vibrational; the physical, energetic, emotional, and mental levels of our being, it quickly reveals that we are also consciousness. We then become aware of the mystical interface between our consciousness and vibrational existence. The practice leads us deeper within where we learn to navigate this interface. Along the way, we are given the keys and principles that guide us to, and help us face, our internal unknown ----- help us to be present at this interface without contraction, judgement, a need to control, or expectation of outcome. Our open presence or surrender before this inner “altar” is our invitation to God. This is our communion; this is how we become a living path of transformational change. Pantanjali, in his Yoga Sutras, wrote, “Yoga is the neutralization of the alternating (vibrating) waves in consciousness.” One thing that I think is obvious to all of us is that we are here to experience this world. But I believe we were not meant to be trapped here. Our consciousness, the very essence of Who We Are, does not come from our experiences of the world, it comes from something that we cannot know through the vibrational i.e. mind, emotion, energy, and matter (the alternating waves). It is only to the extent that we seek and, therefore, attach our identity and our personal value to our experiences of this world that we become entrapped within it. Both Yoga and Qi Gong Practice are teaching us how to experience vibrational existence (Creation and our bodies) while knowing that we (our true identity and value) do not come from these experiences. We are learning to experience this world, to experience everything that it has to offer, without getting entrapped and limited by our experiences.

The Zen of....ummm.....actual Zen
Limited Capacity seats available

What is Zen? A Google search starting with "The Zen of" yields these top suggestions: "screaming," "python" (a computer language), and "social media marketing"). I don't think any of those are what the Buddha had in mind. Zen, as a school of Buddhism, has a long and rich history, but all of it points to one thing. What is this one thing? (Hint: it's not just pretending to be calm.) Zen is funny. Shunryu Suzuki famously said that he could explain Zen in two words: "Not always so." We will discuss a little of the history and practices, with opportunities to experience some of them for yourself. In this interactive session, you will have time to ask any question you like about Zen Buddhist practice.

Have friends who want to join? $15 at the door. Looking forward to this! We will be at Steakhouse 89 with additional grooves by Secret Sessions Sedona from 8:30pm-11:30pm

DJ Drez’s music has been moving bodies for more than two decades. His sound is an organic blend of mystical hip-hop, reggae roots and Indian raga that has been known to instigate an ecstatic dance party one instant, and soothe a group into a meditative savasana the next. If you’re a fan of Drez, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the mysterious, seductive voice of Marti Nikko gracing dozens of the albums, tracks and remixes he’s released over his prolific career. Nikko’s innate spark illuminates Explorers of Infinity. Her soul-soaked vocals dance and play in the spaces impeccably arranged by DJ Drez, highlighting a natural chemistry developed and enhanced through years of performing, living and loving together. The result is a beautiful, eclectic collection of music made for all sacred movement and moods. In addition to making music, Marti teaches yoga and pilates in Los Angeles where she and Drez live and love their 14-year-old son and newborn baby girl.

DJ Drez is a sound pioneer. With an ear for cutting edge sonic ambiance, a finger on the pulse of music that makes bodies move, and the vision and skill to obliterate genre and boundary with his own trademark sound and production, Drez has skyrocketed to international acclaim from the dancehall to the yoga shala.

Sunrise Sun Salutation
Limited Capacity filling up

The best time to do the sun salutation is in the early morning when the sun is between the anahata chakra (at the heart) and ajnachakra (between the eyebrows). Surya means “the sun” and namaskar means “bow or prostration.” In ancient times, surya namaskar was a bhakti, or devotional practice. It was practiced while repeating 12 mantras, thanking the sun for the qualities it gives, allowing us to live on this planet.

If we do the sun salutation when the sun is low in the sky, directly facing the sun, we will feel the sun directly touching the different chakras, awakening them. It can be a very empowering experience. The whole process becomes a give-and-take with the sun. It can be practiced with intentions and devotion. Each graceful pose connects us with the sun and moves the sun’s prana, or shakti, (energy) through our chakras to awaken our own inner energy.

The 12 postures in the Sivananda sequence performed while facing the low sun make sense energetically. In the first posture, pranamasana, we gather the sun’s rays in front of heart. In the next, hasta utthanasana, we can feel the sun entering our heart. In the third posture, padahastasana, we offer our breath and a bow to the sun as the sun warms our lower back. In the fourth, ashwa sanchalasana, we can feel the sun opening our throat chakra to sweeten our words. In the next, kumbhakasana, we line up with the sun, becoming a channel of light. In the sixth and ultimate pose, ashtanga namaskar, we have eight parts of the body on the earth with the manipura chakra (at the solar plexus) in the air to charge up our solar plexus. And in the next pose, bhujangasana, we feel the sun touching between the eyebrows at ajna chakra, opening our intuition.

In this workshop we will learn the 12 steps of the sequence and learn the connection with our own energy centers, see how they can awaken our spirituality with the use of mantras.

Goddess within Every Woman
Limited Capacity seats available

The Goddess Within (Every Woman) There is a Goddess residing within every woman: at least one, and I want to teach you how to inspire her to come out and play more!! The Goddess is an aspect of us that is beautiful, fierce, sensual, intuitive, powerful and wise. She is there through our best moments, radiating brightly like the sun. She’s there in our most trying moments, when we’re angry, sad or heartbroken. She is the great supporter. She is the radiant essence of ourselves. But too often there are moments of great self-doubt and self-judgment, when the inner criticism takes over and disconnects you from your true essence. Your true essence is a force of nature, a power-woman, and a bold, sensual ALIVE woman! The Goddess wants to support you from the inside out, are you going to receive her blessings? What would happen if you knew exactly what you want to do, and how to do it? And, what if nothing was wrong? This workshop offers a cornucopia of practical tools, all guided with Hemalayaa’s trademark charm, good humor, yoga, dance, meditation and spiritual transformational exercises to enable you to reach this critical point of being—of embodying your intuitive, sexy, powerful, and radiant truth.

Emotions are messages. Meditate to listen
Limited Capacity seats available

Our physical body is tangible to the touch. Our emotions are messages from our body, mind, and spirit. Meditation is the bridge between all aspects of ourself. By quieting the physical body, we give our mind and spirit an opportunity to listen to the internal dialogue between all aspects of ourselves. In this class, Leah will offer two meditations. The first on the basic act of listening to and connecting to our senses and body. The second meditation offers an experience that, by placing attention in a particular area of the body it can reduce emotions such as anxiety and increase emotions like confidence. We begin from the outside and work our way in. We start with the tangible confidence in our physical body as we explore the more subtle aspects of our feelings. So that we are present and aware in our body, mind, spirit ; to awaken in life with expanded awareness. For without awareness we are blindly moving though life. For example, lets say you are confronted with trauma or pain and you do not have a reference point to your mind and emotions to guide you through this challenging time. Meditation will give you that reference point. It is a viable life tool that you can add to your life tool kit, and best thing is! that you can use it any way that you choose. To further enhance your life during the best times and the times of struggle. Come to this class to experience your true nature. That of joy, peace and love.

Moving from the Core
Limited Capacity seats available

We talk about working the “core” yet when we hear that, most of us immediately think of the “six pack abs” when in fact there is much more to the core than a nice looking stomach. The body’s “core” refers to the muscles around the abdomen, pelvis and back, they are also the spines primary stabilizers. The core muscles are almost always active, from sitting to standing, walking to running, the core muscles are at work stabilizing our body. Weak core muscles make one more susceptible to poor posture, back pain and injuries during activity. Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance, stability, lean and strong abdominal muscles, and a stronger, more fluid yoga practice.

PRISM: a Model for Addressing Cycles of Harm in Yoga Communities
Limited Capacity seats available

Yoga Service Providers utilize the intellectual, emotional and pedagogical resources of modern yoga methods, lineages, and communities to provide services to vulnerable populations. To uphold the principle of "do no harm", it is prudent to: Pause to reflect on the idea that each yoga method and community carries both value, but also, potentially, a history of abuse. Research the literature on the method to find and understand that history. Investigate whether the harm has been acknowledged and addressed. Show how you will embody the virtues and not bypass the wounds of the community. Model transparent power sharing and engaged ethics for future practitioners. The PRISM strategy is intended to foster transparency and care in spiritual communities. It is meant to prevent retraumatization, obviate the stress of disillusionment, and to help Yoga Service Providers avoid the psychological, institutional, and spiritual drag that accrues when abuse histories are hidden, while reducing the material and emotional labour of backtracking and mending necessitated when hidden histories explode.

Our mind is a powerful instrument, where we can realize everything is temporary and nothing is impossible. This is felt when we recognize our subtle body possesses many 'minds' - the mind in our head, throughout our spine, in our heart and in our gut, to name a few. With creative use of Gravity as a catalyst for movement, and Grace as a consequence of surrender, this dynamic 3-part practice will support the gentle “rewiring” of your neural circuitry responsible for effortless motion, healing, and infinite possibilities. The result helps build refined levels of attention and focus, which encourages greater sensitivity in different 'seats' of mind, and through consistent practice, builds flexibility, strength, and stillness naturally.

According to the on-going neuroscience research, the TNTs enable you to become happier, more intelligent, promote higher self-control, and getting “in the Zone”. Healing PAQ is using the most advanced neuroscience technology such as EEG (Electro Encephalogram), and fMRI (Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging) to research the influence of TNTs on the human brain. The self-healing guided meditation audio has increased the average brain waves more than 3 times among 60 EEG participants. The silent distance healing video has increased the average brain waves more than 4 times among 60 EEG participants. The fMRI demonstrates an extensive amount of blood flow to the visual cortex and the pre-frontal cortex that is the executive commander of the brain. In this session we practice these techniques as we also discuss the scientific evidence.

The sounds and energies channeled through this modality raise the frequency of your cells, assisting your body to heal itself. These frequencies may also help you integrate the right and left hemispheres of your brain, balance masculine and feminine energy in your body, release stuck energies, and align and promote your systems of energy flow in your body. If you are ready to release what no longer serves you so that you can focus your energy on creating your soul desires, this activating experience is for you.

Space of Grace: Sound healing on the Red Rocks
This is an add-on experience for those who want to come early and dive in! To register for this experience please visit: https://sedonayogafestival.com/syf2019-pre-post-conference-immersions/
Hike to one of Sedona’s spiritual vortexes and then bask in the soothing and healing vibrations of Tibetan bowls, flute, gong and more. Relax into a deep state of meditative bliss and allow Sedona’s vortex energy to work with you as you savor the space of grace within.
Sedona’s multi-dimensional vortexes are subtle energy centers created from a spiraling energy that has been found to enhance prayer, meditation and healing. Native Americans long ago recognized the spiritual power and energy of Sedona’s vortexes, honoring this land by using it only for sacred ceremonies. The energy field of Sedona’s many vortexes reaches out about 22 miles, but with an Aumbase Adventure you will be in the midst of it ALL!

Requirements & Preparation
Mobility & fitness level: All participants must be capable of hiking a short distance on uneven surfaces as well as navigate various gradients of terrain without the assistance of a walking aid or third party. Each participant must maintain a current health level that is conducive to hiking at 4000 + elevation without preexisting health conditions that could jeopardize the safety of self or others.

Bring: Please wear comfortable closed-toe walking shoes. Bring layers/protection/hat/sunscreen appropriate for the weather. Bring at least 2 liters of water and snacks. Bring a journal and pen. Bring a day-pack to hold all of these belongings. We will be laying out on the red rocks so consider bringing a yoga mat for that and a blanket to cover with if you so wish.
