Realize Your Healthiest Self Through the Viniyoga Perspective
Limited Capacity seats available

What you need to move toward optimal health is likely different than the yogi one, two, or three mats away. But through Viniyoga, you can adapt various yoga methods to your unique constitution. In this full-day workshop led by Gary Kraftsow, who founded the American Viniyoga Institute, you’ll practice asana and pranayama to optimize inner and outer equanimity. Discover how to use yogic tools to find alignment and stability, improve range of motion and resilience, encourage symmetry and functional movement patterns, and increase and direct the flow of prana in the nadis. Plus, you can determine how to boost vitality and energy, improve sleep, manage stress, stimulate immune response, balance your mood, and clarify your mind.

Teaching Yoga with Heart, Inspiration, and Authenticity
Limited Capacity seats available

Many teachers are taught the mechanics of teaching yet are left yearning for a way to bring their students into a place of deep surrender, prayer, and intentional energetic shifts. Holding space for transformation requires a deep commitment to the inner journey of spirit, compassion, and courage, and a willingness to articulate the complexities of the human experience and the beauty of the soul's journey within. Come explore how to invite 'God' into the body-mind experience, incorporate ritual, read your students' bodies, and speak from your heart as a way to inspire, inform, and motivate the class. Discover just how powerful and inspirational you can be and offer tools on how to share your unique self-expression with your students. Asana and discussion. For existing teachers and advanced practitioners.

Yoga for the Long Haul
Limited Capacity seats available

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!
