LOVE YOUR LOWER BACK!
Limited Capacity filling up

To love your lower back, we will use the principles of Ahimsa and Satya, the 2 yamas, or guidelines, that do no harm and accept truth. After anatomical discussion, floor work and asanas are presented to experience this 'be kind to your spine' philosophy and practice, finishing with relaxation. Excerpts from the Concise Book of Yoga Anatomy book will be used, as well as a power point presentation to explain the intricacies of the lumbar/sacral connection, the very center of the body.

Uniquely You - A Practice of Gratitude for Life
Limited Capacity seats available

Your life is connected in an unbroken thread that reaches back to the beginning of life on Earth 3 billion years ago, and your life is connected with all living things. The air we breathe is refreshed by the green plants of Earth, who use the Sun's energy to build the building blocks of our food from the substance of our exhale. Every breath we take is an intimate connection to the natural world that sustains all life on Earth. As we recognize our interdependence with other life, we marvel in our utter uniqueness - there has never been and never will be another being exactly like us. We joyfully immerse ourselves in connectedness to Life as we experience this uplifting asana and meditation practice of gratitude for the gift of life.

The Eternal Energy of Yoga: A Master Yoga Class with 99-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch
Limited Capacity filling up

The Eternal Energy of Yoga: A Master Yoga Class with 99-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Still able to defy gravity in poses, Tao started yoga at 8 years old in India and embodies the principles in a very modern and accessible way. In addition to first-hand influence from Mahatma Gandhi and Indra Devi, Tao studied with a Who’s Who of the Spiritual World including Sri Aurobindo, Swami Prabhavananda, Dr. Roman Ostoja, B.K.S. Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois and the Maharishi. In this immersive “on-the-mat” session, participants will: Use the four pillars of yoga: pranayama (breath work), mudras (gestures), bandhas (energetic locks) and chakras (energy centers) to explore the rich potential of the body to renew, heal and revitalize. Practice Tao’s special “yoga tango” integrating breath, movement and music, and experience a deeply absorbing meditation–inspiring compassion and inner peace. Learn Tao’s “secrets” to vitality and boundless energy via techniques that are not taught elsewhere. Have the opportunity to ask questions only hindsight and living history can answer. Participants will walk away inspired, strengthened and renewed–ready to energize their yoga practice and craft a vibrant “Tao-like” life! Tao has taught around the world and across the United States at places like the Pentagon, Integral Yoga Institute New York, Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, as well as local yoga studios such as YogaWorks in New York, Urban Yoga in Phoenix and Mark Blanchard’s Yoga Kansas City .

Embodied Creativity
Limited Capacity seats available

Creativity is the magic force of life, and your body is the vehicle for that life force. When you let your creativity flow through the layers of your body, you also make your soul visible. Join this special flow yoga practice that helps you find pathways of connection from your center to the outside world. You will be challenged a little bit, not technically but creatively – you'll find yourself a tool to release any blocks you might occasionally meet. We will start slowly and end up having a lot of fun, we might even step out of the asanas every now and then... This practice works best if you have even a little bit of yoga experience.

Yin On The Rocks
Limited Capacity seats available

Yin Yoga is quiet, subtle, and deep. It's physical purpose is to work beneath the muscle tissues, delving into our connective tissues, ligaments, joints, bones, cartilage and the deepest facia networks in the body. Emotionally, it's one hell of a release! This great transformative system, coupled with a charged opening sequence to get the body hot and juicy, is the perfect compliment to old and new, hard and soft, slow and fast, yin and yang. It's another Eric Paskel original which always is more than just a class!
