EMBODIED: Mindfulness Yoga & Meditation*
A Half-Day Retreat with Chris Crotty and David Schouela
Saturday, May 25, 2-5:30pm ~ Yoga and Buddhism share the same aim the liberation of body, mind, and heart. Postures and breath practice support the body and mind for meditation, and mindfulness enables a more intentional, awareness-based yoga. This program is open to anyone interested in exploring the relationship between yoga asana (postures) and insight meditation. Together these mutually supportive practices foster self-awareness and insight into the conditions that underlie greater well-being and personal freedom. This half-day retreat includes periods of yoga postures and guided meditation based on the Four Foundations of mindfulness, and is aimed at helping students deepen concentration and investigate the true nature of mind and body. Yoga sessions will draw from yin, kripalu, and vini-yoga, and will be accessible to all levels of practitioners (of both yoga and meditation), including beginners. Preregistration recommended here

Special 4-Day Training with DOUG KELLER**
The Therapeutic Wisdom Of Yoga: Rewriting the Story of Our
Health and Growth ~ For Yoga Teachers & Inquiring Students
Thursday-Sunday, June 6-9 ~ details & registration here!
Chronic pain often arises from improper habits and patterns of movement that have become part of the ‘story’ of our body. Traditional approaches in yoga have described the problem in terms of layers or koshas which include the influence of breath, thought and emotion. We are now coming to understand how these ‘layers’ are expressed in the fascia, impacting our well-being while taking a major role in chronic pain. This training will be an exploration of the elements of posture and movement as they influence the Koshas, and how to approach yoga practice as a commitment to self-care.
