We will explore how to level, modify and use props to find the perfect balance of ease and effort in yoga poses.

We will look at yoga asana through a study of anatomy, kinesiology, and SomaYoga methodology so that your own practice and students practice can flourish with ease.

Specific SomaYoga techniques – such as aligning from the spine out to the extremities, using the technique of pandiculation to increase mobility and function – will be explored within the framework of this intensive workshop.

  • Date: Thursday, May 11th, 2017
  • Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
  • Cost: $40 (sliding scale available)
  • PRE-REGISTER here

It can be so seductive to get caught in the busy-ness of life. Focussing on what’s next, achieving more (and more), and overcommitting are habits that can bring us away from our heart and health.
Swan Medicine retreat is an evening of self-care, visioning, healing and reconnecting to your truths. Inspired by the swan, you’ll experience the power and beauty of reflection, nourishing (the body, mind, and spirit), and taking it easy.
In this mini-retreat, we tap into the wisdom of the swan. Swan is powerful medicine for intuition, healing, personal power, generosity, grace, and flow. We too can learn from the Swan’s grace and balance of flowing and surrendering and knowing how to soar. There is a feminine strength in the swan. The swan also knows when ferocity is required.

We too can learn from the wisdom of the swan, working with the fertile soil of spring to connect to our soul, care for the body, and create a new vision for the future. This retreat will invites us to work (or play!) with healing, letting go, reflection, self-discovery, and ease. The experience will deepen your connection to self, nature, nourishment and swan medicine.

May 11th 7-9pm
$40 (sliding scale)

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.

Personal power—a feeling that our needs, wants, and desires are worthy (and possible of being met) is fundamental in cultivating feelings of happiness, authenticity, and confidence.
