This Y12SR program presents a framework for addiction recovery that includes the cognitive approach of the 12-step program, the trauma healing approach of Somatic Experiencing and the body-based approaches offered by yoga and mindfulness practices.

Utilizing material from ancient texts, trauma research as well as information and data from modern neuroscience studies, we will discuss exactly how combining the cognitive and somatic approaches can support changes in brain patterning. This holistic framework, based in the theme, ‘The Issues Live in Our Tissues’, presents a holistic relapse prevention model that supports compassionate awareness, change and healing.

The Y12SR Leadership Training Teaches:

– Create safe, sacred, open, inclusive space that welcomes all those dealing with their own addictive behavior or are affected by the addictive behavior of others.

– Understand the 12-step process of addiction recovery as well as recognizing the symptomology of unresolved trauma, and a dys-regulated nervous system.

– Use yoga and its practices to provide relapse prevention tools and sustainable ways for managing internal states.

– Take advantage of teachable moments, help resolve ambivalence and work with those who are struggling emotionally.

– Use social learning theory to model new behavior through observational learning.

– Recognize the traps of projection, transference, countertransference, boundary violation, spiritual bypass/arrogance.

– Work collaboratively within the group setting and with institutions.

– Develop a network of professionals including trauma experts and others in the addiction/recovery treatment field.

Attend this two-part series to connect to the stability of ground, the ease and pleasure of flow, the power of will and self-determination, the joy of connection, and the strength of your voice and vision.

SomaYoga is a blend of somatics, neuromuscular re-education and yoga. In this class, we will explore ways to use breath and movement to release out of contracted states and to re-awaken parts of the body that have been disconnected. As you tune in more to the body’s subtle cues, you can begin to calm the nervous system, relieve chronic pain and decrease sensory and emotional reactivity.

Chakra Therapy is an integrative approach that uses knowledge of the chakra system to bring the body into greater balance. Based on the innovative work of Anodea Judith, author of Wheels of Life and Eastern Body, Western Mind. Chakra Therapy combines somatic therapy with yoga, bioenergetics, hands-on techniques, guided imagery and ritual arts.

  • Date: Thursday, August 10th – Saturday, August 12th 2017
  • Cost: $375
  • PRE-REGISTER here

Yin Yoga is a complementary yoga that focuses on fascia and the body’s fascial network. When the fascia of the body is nourished and healthy we experience better mobility, structural alignment, healthy joints, emotional balance, and a deep spaciousness physically, mentally and emotionally. Yin Yoga promotes yielding into postures for longer periods of time allowing the deep fascial tissues to slowly lengthen and open. Steeped in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoism, Yin Yoga works with opening the pathways for chi to flow in the body. The deep quiet of the practice allows the student to fine tune inner-listening skills and mindfulness.
Yin Yoga Teacher Training is geared towards yoga teachers who have completed their 200 or 500-hour teacher training requirements and are seeking to teach Yin Yoga or fold Yin Yoga into their current style of teaching. A certificate of completion will be presented for those attending all 15 hours of this training. Continuing education credits with Yoga Alliance will be granted. Participants are expected to have been practicing Yin Yoga in their own bodies in both a classroom setting and on their own for at least 3-6 months prior to this training. This will ensure that you understand the basic language of this style of yoga.
Level I Yin Training Three-Day Intensive
LEVEL I Yin Yoga Teacher Training Program includes
• 15 contact hours (intensive weekend)
• Foundations of Yin Yoga and the postures
• Fascial anatomy/basic meridian line theory

The unique thing about these points is that they are on the phsycial body but energetic in nature. They act as a bridge between the physcial and subtle body, controling the prana shakti, calibrating the doshas and helping in briniging a baalace of gunas.
This session is open to all. Come and deepen your awarness about your own body and take your practice to the next level.

INTRODUCTION TO YOGA NIDRA with Indu Arora

  • Date: Sunday, August 27th 2017
  • Time: 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Cost: $65.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

The state of health (sva-sthya) is primarily based on three pillars: sleep (nidra), diet (ahaara) and moderation of sensual indulgences (brahma-acharya). Out of the three, nidra has been given more importance and considered to be the best. According to Charaka: happiness, sorrow, physical strength, immunity, lack of immunity, insight, concentration, lack of knowledge, poor memory, longevity and death occur depending on the proper or improper nidra/sleep. It is time we give importance to nidra. Yoga nidra is an ancient practice which allows us to understand the psychology of sleep, the one who sleeps, and the one who witnesses deep sleep.
In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali revealed that when the vrittis (mental modifications) of our minds settle, we become aware of our true nature, or drastuh. Our drastuh is the Witness, the Seer, our soul, and it remains even when our earthly bodies have expired.

Embrace & experience our real selves through this “Introduction to Yoga Nidra” workshop and gracefully prepare yourself for the internal journey.

Contents of the Workshop
1 What is Yoga Nidra
2 History of Yoga Nidra
3 Pre requisite and Practices to enhance the Yoga Nidra journey
4 Yoga Nidra Practice

PS: You may bring your blankets, eye pillows, extra cushions etc.
No strong perfumes in the session as it may be an obstacle for someone to do in deeper states.

Price for workshop: $65

UNNATA® AERIAL YOGA TEACHER TRAINING with Becky Stella

  • Cost: $1500.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

The Unnata® Aerial Yoga teacher training is a comprehensive, immersive, 65-hour advanced yoga teacher training, specifically designed for previously certified yoga teachers.

Learn to incorporate the fabric hammock in to your yoga classes in a transformative way. Unnata Aerial Yoga incorporates postures both in the air and on the floor to strike a necessary energetic and physical balance. With special attention on how the aerial informs the terrestrial yoga and vice versa, we will examine over 100 postures on a deeper level to see what’s happening on physical, energetic, and emotional levels. Learn safety, spotting, cuing, modifications and padding so that aerial postures are accessible to all students. Learn to use the fabric as teaching tools for your students to better understand bandhas, chanting, breath awareness, and subtle energy. Explore how the fabric can be used as a therapeutic tool.

This course teaches you not only what to do on the hammock, but also examines why you are doing it. When you understand the reasoning behind why to use the hammock, you become your own guide for creating new asana and ways of using the fabric to guide an support your students on their individual paths of self-discovery. After graduating from an Unnata Aerial Yoga teacher training course, you will have the skill and confidence to teach your own well-sequenced and creative Aerial Yoga classes. You’ll also belong to a pioneering, international community of innovative, fun, and sincere Yoga instructors.

Training with a small group of teachers provides an intimate environment in which to examine different approaches to sequencing using the fabric, the key to a truly transformative class. Learn about rigging and how to make and care for and your own equipment.

The Autumn Equinox is the point when day and night are equal in length.

Join Brianna Darling to create space in the mind and body that will help ease us into a rich and restful fall. We’ll begin the practice with ritual and end with Yoga Nidra- a guided form of deep relaxation. No experience with this style of Yoga required, it is a very friendly practice that welcomes all.

Body Positive Yoga – make yoga work for the body you have today

Have you ever been frustrated in a yoga class because you felt squished or balled up, instead of spacious and open? You probably just need a few simple tricks to make the poses work for your body!

If you’re in a larger body, a yoga class can be a wonderful place to make peace with your body and yourself. It can also be pure torture when accommodations aren’t made for your larger belly, legs, or chest. This workshop is designed especially for big-bodied yogis who want to be empowered to step into any class with confidence, knowing they have the tools to make yoga work for their bodies.

In this workshop, we’ll explore things like: How to keep your boobs out of your face, twisting and folding when you have a belly, and other “sticky spots” like sun salutations and inversions. We’ll help each other find safe alignment and freedom in poses, learn to modify yoga to fit our bodies, and have some laughs along the way.
Yoga teachers who’d like to learn modifications for larger students are also welcome. We’ll address things like language, how to introduce modifications, and you’ll have a chance to hear directly from diverse-bodied practitioners – a wonderful teachable moment!

Reiki is an ancient form of universal energetic healing that encourages a state of balance, harmony, and self-healing.

NOVEMBER

IGNITE YOUR INNER WITCH: A HALLOWEEN PRACTICE FOR WOMEN with Brianna Darling

  • Date: Friday, November 3rd 2017
  • Time: 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
  • Cost: $35.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

Historically, witches have been vilified by Western societies. Strapped to ducking stools and burnt at stakes, witches were associated with a dangerous, renegade sexuality and often made the focal point for society’s deep-seated anxieties about the role of women.
In reality, a witch is an empowered woman, someone who can see the nuances of the world and work with them, and who is not afraid to fight for what she wants or believes in. Witches always pay attention to their gut feelings and rely on their intuition.
Being a witch is easier than you might think. All you have to do is tap into the inner witch within. In this class we’ll do just that! Through movement (gentle yoga and dance), breath work and guided visualization you’ll get to know your inner witch and learn how to channel her.
No experience with cauldrons or spells necessary. All who identify as women are welcome! This class will be capped at 18.
$35.
