Ayurveda 101 for Yogis: Ayurvedic Theory, Self-Care Tools, and Vata-Balancing Yoga
The secret to enriching your day with more energy, clarity, and motivation is Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old Indian system of healing and sister science to yoga.

In the afternoon, you’ll dive into a juicy Ayurvedic yoga journey to relax the body, soothe nerves, and restore tranquility to the mind. Harmonize vata dosha in time for Autumn with a full-body asana sequence, pranayama, and mindfulness meditation. Then you’ll try Abhyanga (self-massage) techniques to melt tension, and finish the day with a restorative yoga nidra to boost immunity.

Do you want to be able to make yourself a smoothie without depending on someone else when you’re 90 years old? Do you want to be free in your body now and well into your older years? Would you like to be that old lady or old man with the twinkle in their eye when you reach old age? This is a chance to start a rich, energizing, and therapeutic practice that is sustainable and will last a lifetime. This is an opportunity to let your asana ambitions go for just one day and get to the heart of the yoga matter! A good yoga practice should support you in loving your life and it should help you move better vs. pose better. To move with ease and develop true core strength for a lifetime sustainable practice, it’s critical to initiate movement from your deep, intrinsic muscles vs. only recruiting your main movers like the quads, glutes, and pecs. This intensive will take you on a journey through essential movement and flow while still gaining mobility and strength in the larger muscle groups. In addition to learning how to keep yourself intrinsically strong and safe, you will discover Amy’s secrets to building a yoga practice and lifestyle that lasts; including how to work with injuries, asymmetries in the body, and how to handle life setbacks & curveballs with grace. Both young and old are welcome - in fact this is an opportunity for all ages to come together on the mat to learn from each other about the thing we are all experiencing right now: LIFE! You will stretch, sweat, laugh, dance, deeply relax, restore, and much, much more. Join us!

You’ll learn how to keep your lower back and sacroiliac joint safe by moving the pelvis and spine together in all of your poses. Since this is a complete practice, you’ll also have plenty of time to address the other parts of your body, including your shoulders and core.

What happens when women get together? Something immeasurably powerful and transformative can come from the support of other women. We set down our barriers and dwell in our commonalities, compassion, and understanding. Even though this is only a half of day, the goal is to leave you feeling like you have just been on a weeklong women’s retreat. In her 20 years of teaching women’s retreats, Saidman Yee has come to understand that a lot of times we are struggling with similar issues and thinking that we are alone. Emotional needs of a woman are different from those of a man. We will target common areas where tension, trauma, and secrets can be buried with the intension of unleashing joy. We will use asana, pranayama, meditation, journaling and dialogue to dig into areas that keep us stuck. Why and where are we stuck? What are we afraid of? Are we living our potential? Are we using our voices to speak our truth? Do we understand our importance and validity? We will experiment with practices that address issues such as forgiveness and confidence. We will explore different tools that unlock bindings in the body, breath, and brain that keep you from realizing that you are enough.

Injury Prevention and Recovery 
Limited Capacity seats available

Getting injured is an inevitable part of life and if we're wise, we can learn some of the most valuable lessons from our injuries. As a yoga practitioner our aim is to injure ourselves and others as little as possible in everything we do including asana. To do this we must learn and teach the difference between beneficial discomfort and injurious pain. The injurious pain signal is one that requires an immediate change in approach and is a call to attention that something is about to go very wrong, but even when we're incredibly diligent sometimes we still make errors in judgment and get injured. When an injury occurs the road back to health can be a scary and frustrating one but it doesn't have to be. In this workshop, we'll explore how to prevent injuries from happening by understanding the range of motion joints have and how to ask our students not to move past the limits of their physical structure. We'll then further this and look at how to approach healing once an injury has occurred both physically and most importantly how to handle the mind's thoughts about injury and the recovery process.

Harnessing the Power of Mood and Thought
Limited Capacity seats available

As we become more proficient with asana and pranayama, the next step is to gain control of our thoughts and feelings. Using the energy cultivated through asana and pranayama, and directing that energy through the cultivation of one-pointed focus, we can begin to free ourselves from the incessant internal dialogue and twisted journey of thoughts, desires, feelings, conflicts and distractions which dissipate our energy. Once the mind is brought under control, we can use the methods of inquiry and self-reflection that will lead us to deeper understanding and contentment. Towards these goals, the Ancients utilized mantra japa and various forms of meditation. asana, pranayama, mantra and meditation
