- 11th Annual Candlelight Solstice Celebration
Come enjoy an evening of meaning and connection as we move through the darkest part of the year by candlelight… sparking our inner fire through sound, breath, movement, music and connection.
7:30-9:00 pm Choose from one of two yoga classes:
Firelight Flow: Yoga with Live Drum with Isabelle Addison & rhythms by Marcus Fung. Live drumming will uplift and inspire a warm and invigorating flow sequence, preparing you for a deep and meditative release in savasana.
Diving Deep: Candlelight Yin Sanctuary with Amanda Whiting & music by Sparrow Grace
Winter solstice is a time for stillness and reflection. It is also a time to celebrate the turning of the seasons, welcoming of longer days, and moving from darkness to light. Take time out of the busy holidays to slow down, breathe deep, and melt tension as we plunge into the deep receptivity of a meditative candlelight yin class while soaking in the sounds of enchanting live-music with the amazing Sparrow Grace.
9:00 – 9:45 pm Steep in Sweetness: The two classes will join together for Kirtan (call and response singing) as well as delicious tea & treats!
Cost: $25 in advance $30 at the door

- Akhanda Yoga Immersion
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about Akhanda Yoga, now is the time! If you’ve already done an Akhanda Yoga 200 hour YTT, this immersion will take you further into the amazing forest of learning that you tasted in your course!
Akhanda Yoga is the universal path of yoga preserved in it’s holistic form, as a science of self-realization and inner balance. Akhanda means whole and indivisible, and refers to both our innermost nature, and the complete tradition of yoga. In the west yoga is often diluted to be made purely physical, ignoring the other four sheaths of consciousness in form, the Koshas. Instead striving primarily for physical strength and balance, Akhanda yoga informs us how to absorb and contain vital life force energy in our physical and subtle bodies. This holistic style was founded by Himalayan Master and Teacher, Yogrishi Vishvketu. Asana, pranayama, mantra, philosophy, meditation and joy and incorporated into each practice.
What you can expect from this weekend:
– A new exploration of the history of yoga, the 8 limb path & Patanjali’s yoga sutras.
– Introduction of Kosha Yoga: the five sheaths: physical, pranic, mental, wisdom/oneness, & bliss layers.
– Asana practice, techniques & sequencing specific to Kosha yoga
– Ayurveda: cultivation & preservation of vitality, exploring Prana, Tejas and Ojas
– Mantra used Akhanda Yoga, the practice, the benefits & how to present.
– Pranayama techniques – khapalabhati advanced, alternate nostril with retentions, 3 part yogic breathing review & application.

- 300 hour YTT for 500 hour certification
300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training for 500 certification. Beginning fall of 2016!
Are you a 200 hour trained yoga teacher?
Are you interested in deepening your practice and taking your teaching to the next level?
Are you drawn to moving through an in-depth YTT program with a committed group of like-minded individuals, growing and sharing together?
Dive into the true roots of traditional, holistic yoga and its timeless application for the evolving world. The course offers yoga teachers of all traditions a unique opportunity for professional development and profound personal growth.
This 300-hour certification course (which gives a graduate a total of 500-hours of training in combination with their previous YTT 200) is intended only for graduates of a Yoga Alliance recognized 200-hour teacher training program or equivalent.
Yoga teaching is an art that refines and evolves as we do. This is never static, but something that develops directly through our own authenticity and through immersion in yoga practice, philosophy and lifestyle. There are no set rules or structures, but a rich tradition to draw from in our explorations. Yoga teacher training is a huge support for this development.
