This enrollment runs from Thu Sep 13, 2018 - Thu Nov 1, 2018
Viniyoga (prefixes vi and ni plus yoga) is an ancient Sanskrit term that implies differentiation, adaptation, and appropriate application. Although all yoga as a practice is therapeutic, this class is intentionally designed for students seeking education on how to practice yoga asana based on their current body condition. Using asana (poses), pranyama (breath) and mindfulness as tools, participants will learn a process of self-investigation and develop skills that will safely guide and empower those who would like to develop a more consistent and personalized yoga practice. Appropriate practices that meet the interests and abilities of the class as a whole will be offered.

Rhythm of Nature - Balance the Energy of Fall with Seasonal Practices of Yoga, Ayurveda, & Kundalini with Amy Clem Sun, Sep 16, 2018 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Fall season brings special delights with it’s clear, crisp energy. If we don’t take a little extra care to balance Fall’s natural increase in the Air & Space elements, it may also bring special challenges like insomnia, dry skin, digestive upset, difficulty focusing, and extra aches or pains. The good news is with small, simple, and often delicious adjustments to your lifestyle and yoga practice you can easily flow with the rhythm of nature and truly enjoy what Fall has to offer - enhanced creativity, the ability to learn at lightning speed, and abundant, vivacious energy.

Through an introduction to Ayurveda, the natural medicine of India, you will discover your unique ratio of the 5 elements, also known as your “Constitution” or “Dosha.” From there, we’ll discuss how to maintain your dynamic state of health throughout the Fall season. We’ll cover cooking techniques and food choices as well as self care practices that will balance and soothe your system. You’ll learn how to modify your familiar yoga practice, utilize specific breathing & meditation techniques, and a set of exercises from the Kundalini yoga tradition to calm and ground yourself during the Fall season of “Vata.”

The workshop will be part discussion and part physical practice, so please bring your notebook, yoga mat, and a sense of curiosity as we dive into the ancient “Science of Life.

Live Well 200 Hour Teacher Training 2018-2019 with Katie Zarajczyk Fri, Sep 28, 2018 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Heart of Yoga: 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Instructors: Katie Zarajczyk, Katelin Gallagher, and Jocelyn Darshana

 

Dive deep into the practice of yoga and become a yoga teacher. In the fall you’ll turn your attention to foundational topics of yoga practice and teaching, firmly establishing your personal practice and knowledge as a yogi, while entering the realm of holding space as a yogi guide. During the winter, explore the world of inner yoga - philosophy, contemplation, and meditation, as you refine your teaching through the power of contemplative practice. 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, and offer a full yoga class to your peers.

The fall immersion program will focus on building foundations of practice and teaching. We will explore teaching modalities, asana, alignment, anatomy, kinesiology, and creating community. Each weekend will build upon the last developing teaching methods, balanced sequencing, modifications, and adjustments while fostering a growing sense of confidence for leading an effective class.  Led by Katie Zarajczyk, E-RYT 500.

The winter immersion program can be taken as a stand alone or as part of the 200-hour training. It is for serious seekers, yogis, meditators and curious philosophers alike. Our three 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 complex, dialectical, esoteric yogic teachings. The immersion builds in preparation for 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-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, 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. Led by Jocelyn Darshana, RYT 500, E-RYT 200.
