Yoga teaches us that we are all connected, and a great way to relate in this way is through chanting. When your voice unites with others, you feel that loving connection to something bigger than you.

Teacher: Misako Matsuoka
This Yin Yoga Immersion, led by Misako Matsuoka E-RYT500, will take you deep into the vital practice of Yin yoga.
Yin Yoga is beneficial for every body: for all ages and all levels of yoga experience. Yin Yoga is especially beneficial for athletes, those with chronic stress or insomnia, or those with unresolved tightness due to past injury. Yin yoga is also a wonderful way to prepare the body for meditation. The Yin Yoga practice is a quiet, inward looking style of yoga where floor postures are held passively for several minutes. The long held stretches lengthen and nourish the connective tissue and fascia, releasing blocked energy to promote smooth energy flow and healthy range of movement in joints.

Are you feeling stuck in or frustrated with old patterns? Are you interested in greater emotional intelligence and more satisfying relationships? The Enneagram is a key to unlocking unconscious habits of mind and behaviors that may be working against you. You can also consider the Enneagram your personal guidebook to your boss, your partner or your parent! The Enneagram (any-a-gram) system is a map of nine fundamental personality types; unique patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting in the world based on underlying motivations. Our personal and professional successes and failures are due in large part to our Enneagram type, which is alive within us 24 hours a day.
Teacher: Erika Abrahamian
Curious about Mysore-style Ashtanga? Been practicing for a while and would like a chance to dive deeper into the method and explore the practice? Join our Mysore teacher, Erika, for this progressive 6 week course where she will break down the philosophy, history, breathing patterns, vinyasa counts, and the postures of the primary series of ashtanga. By the end of the 6 weeks, you will have the tools you need to move into the mysore room with confidence, and experience the transformative power of the practice. During this course, Erika will work with the group and individually to develop personalized sequences that makes sense for each person's body and abilities within the boundaries set by the method. Each weeks materials will build on the previous weeks' work.

Tantra and the sacred feminine have become very popular in Western yoga. Our workshop will focus on the role of the Goddess in the tantric system. We will examine the ten great manifestations of the Goddess and her role in creating the universe by dancing with Shiva. We will explore (i) Shiva and Shakti’s cosmic dance and how we can use the choreography of the unfolding of the universe as a guide to our yoga practice; (ii) the ten Great Tantric Goddesses (the Mahavidyas) with a special emphasis on Kali; and (iii) some practices that we can use to tap into the sacred feminine such as meditations, sound, visualizations and journaling.
