YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING: LEVEL I 3-DAY INTENSIVE with Michelle Pietrzak-Wegner

  • 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.

We are what we eat, digest and eliminate. Food & Lifestyle is a major part of Ayurveda, it is not only seen as nourishing the body but also the mind, intellect and inner balance.
Central to Ayurveda is the concept of doshas, or mind-body constitutions, which sometimes swing out of balance due to our lifestyle habits and food choices.

The practice of asana, pranayama, mudra, mantra and kriyas becomes thousand times more powerful when combined with the knoweldge and awarness of main marami (marma points) in the body. The unique thing about these points is that they are on the phsycial body but energetic in nature.

Introduction to Yoga Nidra (Sunday, Aug. 27th // 2-5pm):
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.

  • 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.

  • Time: 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
  • Cost: $30.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

The Autumn Equinox is the point when day and night are equal in length. The Earth is balanced between the two extremes of the year: the Midsummer Solstice, the longest day, and the Midwinter Solstice, the longest night. The Autumn Equinox is rich with symbolism that we’ll integrate in to our yoga practice so that you can integrate it into your life. By aligning your own energies to the natural rhythms of the earth and the suns’ cycles you can more fully enjoy rest, contemplation and renewal during the dormant phase of the year we’re moving into.
Yin Yoga is a soft, still, deep, and nurturing seated practice. It goes beyond stretching the muscles. It opens and creates space in the body while cultivating elasticity in the facial system. 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. Come as you are, just remember to pre-register and pre-pay, this class will be capped at 25 students!

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!

FALL REJUVENTION RETREAT: REIKI & RESTORATIVE with Brianna Darling

  • Date: Saturday, October 21st 2017
  • Time: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
  • Cost: $42.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

You deserve some rest simply because you’re human, so join Brianna Darling for this 2-hour experience of relaxation and surrender. During this retreat students will hold restorative yoga poses while receiving Reiki healing energy. Essential oils and visualization will be used throughout this practice to transport us into a deeper state of relaxation and connect with our personal intentions and themes around fall.
Restorative Yoga helps to relieve the effects of stress by allowing the central nervous system to calm while the body is fully supported with the use of props (bolsters, blankets, blocks etc), stimulating deep relaxation and a sense of restoring and renewing your mind, body, and spirit. Reiki is an ancient form of universal energetic healing that encourages a state of balance, harmony, and self-healing.
All are welcome to this workshop and no prior experience with yoga or Reiki is required. Class will be capped at 15, please pre-register.
$42.

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.

  • Time: 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
  • Cost: $45.00
  • PRE-REGISTER here

Join Brianna Darling for a sense awakening experience. You will learn why essential oils are important, and how incorporate them into your practice and life. This class will include instruction on oils, chakras and yoga; as well as meditation and a gentle gentle vinyasa practice. Throughout class you will experience using oils through applying them topically as well as through inhalation and ingestion. You will get the opportunity to play around with crystal pendulums to gain a deeper understanding on how oils affect your energy body.

Essential oils can help to regulate memory, create mental clarity, enhance creativity, and improve physical physical strength. They have the ability to interact with the mind and body in a way that allows one connect with the energetic body- and one’s true essence. The sense of smell is our most primal sense, dating back to the origins of life on Earth. Oils can be used to enhance asana, pranayama, meditation, relaxation, and general well-being.

This class is purely for fun and learning and is not designed to sell you oils! All students will receive a 2 ml vile of their choice of essential oil and detailed handouts to take home for further exploration. Essential oil-infused snacks will be provided to munch on.

Reserve your spot early- this class will be capped at 15 students.
