Contemplations on Death, Dying, Grief & Living Life More Fully with Katelin Gallagher Fri, Aug 25, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Retreat led by Isabella Vickers, MA LPC and Katelin Gallagher, E-RYT.
 
Most familiarly, savasana (corpse pose) is known as a posture of rest, and even as a posture representing metaphorical death — dying to an old version of ourselves and being born into a newer version after each practice.
 
But what else might savasana teach us about death, and therefore about life? With self-compassion as a tool for meeting suffering, cultivating an intimacy with death is perhaps the one thing that can help us cultivate an intimacy with life.
 
Through discussion, meditation, process art, and reflective writing, we will explore death, dying, and grief from a spiritual and metaphorical perspective and as a potent means to living life more fully.

Prerequisite: willingness and readiness to engage in frank discussions about life and death, and to participate in death meditation.

Includes art supplies and printed materials. (No art experience necessary.)

The nature of this subject is intimate, and the retreat is not for everyone as it is not intended to be group therapy for grief. Please click the link below to complete and submit a form to begin the registration process. We look forward to talking with you.

Live Well Studio 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, 2017-2018 with Lisa Wells Next held on Fri, Sep 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Fri Sep 15, 2017 - Sat Sep 16, 2017
Dive deep into the practice of yoga and become a yoga teacher. In the fall you’ll turn your attention inward and firmly establish your personal practice as a yogi. During the winter you will build a strong foundation for sharing your love of yoga with others through teaching. In the Spring, digging deeper into yoga philosophy and world view, you will practice observing and holding space for students, finding your unique voice, discuss the ethics of teaching to a varied population, learn trauma-informed teaching modifications, and offer a full yoga class to your peers. Our Teacher Training includes one weekend long retreat November 10-12.

The fall Immersion program can be taken as a stand alone. It is for serious seekers, yogis, meditators and curious philosophers alike. Our four months of study will follow a rich, sophisticated yogic curriculum and include progressive meditative practice, philosophical inquiry, postural practice, yogic techniques, community, and dialogue. The program is designed to investigate embodied contemplative and meditative practice sequentially, beginning with foundations and building gradually to the deeper, dialectical, esoteric yogic teachings. The immersion builds in preparation for an off-site, guided weekend silent retreat, and a culminating module called "Embodying Love," which is an exploration of contemplative practice off the mat. Most practices are inspired by or derived from the schools of Tibetan Buddhism and classical Patanjali Yoga, yet the practices will be held in a greater context of modern, Western, integral spirituality. Clear pathways will be carved by our time together, but each practitioner will weave his or her own journey. Participants will become steeped in practice and methodology, understanding not just the “how” but also the “why.” Led by Katelin Gallagher E-RYT500, Buddhist chaplain-in-training.

The winter Immersion will focus on building your foundation for teaching. Each week we work to cultivate your individual voice and to build confidence through teaching practice. During these six sessions we will focus on an advanced study of asana, yoga anatomy, and biomechanics. Asana study and sequencing will include benefits, potential risks, energetic connection, modifications, observation, assists, and the effective use of props. Led by Katie Zarajczyk, E-RYT 500.

The spring Immersion will develop the outer expression of your inner work. We will focus on finding the seat of the teacher through discovering your unique voice and learning how to hold the yoga space for your students. Through the study of Sanskrit and Sacred Texts, Trauma Informed Yoga, Ethics of Teaching, and the Business of Yoga, we will round out this 200 Hour training by teaching a full yoga class to your peers. Our third session, led by Jocelyn Fultz, RYT 500, E-RYT 200.

The Yogi's Inner Immersion with Katelin Gallagher Next held on Fri, Sep 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Fri Sep 15, 2017 - Sat Sep 16, 2017
A unique, six module intensive for those who are looking for an inspiring, structured meditation and contemplative yogic training that builds session to session. This immersion can be enrolled in separately or as a segment of Live Well’s 200-hr (RYS) Yoga Teacher Training Program.

Live Well Studio’s 2017 yogic immersion program is for serious seekers, yogis, meditators and curious philosophers alike. Our four months of deep study together will follow a rich, sophisticated yogic curriculum and include deepening or progressive meditative practice, philosophical inquiry, postural practice, yogic techniques, community, and dialogue. The weekend-based, 6-module program is designed to investigate embodied contemplative and meditative practice sequentially, beginning with foundations and building gradually to the deeper, dialectical, more esoteric yogic teachings. The immersion builds in preparation for an off-site, guided weekend silent retreat, and a culminating module called "Embodying Love," which is an exploration of contemplative practice off the cushion/yoga mat. Most practices are inspired by or derived from the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism and classical Patanjali Yoga, yet the practices will be held in a greater context of modern, Western, integral spirituality. Clear pathways will be carved by our time together, but each practitioner will weave his or her own journey. Participants will become steeped in practice and methodology, understanding not just the “how” but also the “why.” Entry by application. Led by Katelin Gallagher E-RYT, Buddhist chaplain-in-training.

Breathe Easy - Breathwork Series with Naomi Halpern Next held on Tue, Oct 10, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
This enrollment runs from Tue Oct 10, 2017 - Tue Oct 31, 2017
Relieve and strengthen your daily, natural breath. Many of us have formed restrictive habits of breathing that limit our ability to take a full breath and thus also limit our potential to be fully and healthfully alive. Breathing is linked to the function of the heart and circulatory system, nervous system, gastrointestinal system, and affects your mental well-being, concentration, and energy level. In this series, we will explore our breathing habits and retrain the breath patterns to be open and full. This is not a pranayam series. We will use gentle movement, investigative exercise, and mindful awareness to understand and awaken our breath. Please bring a journal.
4 week series, 7-8:15, October 10th-31st
$75 before September 26th, $90 after
