Yoga Immersion: Amy Ippoliti: Being Human: Yoga to Keep it Real
Limited Capacity seats available

We are drowning in information but starving for wisdom - it can be challenging to hear our own thoughts. In this immersion, relish the chance to hit the pause button on the accelerated pace in which we find ourselves as you dive into standing poses, inversions, twists, hip openers, light heart opening, pranayama, and restoratives….All are purposely steeped in mindfulness, focus, intention, and plenty of fun along the way. Leave the feed behind, float on a mountain high, and then return to life with the gift of presence for yourself and planetary wellbeing.

Yoga Immersion: Govind Das & Radha: The Hanuman Heart Pre-Hanuman Festival Intensive Practice, Satsang, and Ritual
Limited Capacity seats available

As we open the gates to this deeply transformative Hanuman Festival 2019, we will draw from the archetype and stories of Hanuman and the Bhakti Yoga tradition to intentionally create the vision of love, service, and devotion for our lives. Govind Das and Radha (along with special musical guests) will lovingly guide bhakti yogis and yoginis through a joy-filled heart-sharing practice, ritual, and satsang. We will use the practices below to tap into the medicine of the heart:
working with Hanuman as an archetype to inspire a life journey dedicated to service
devotion-nectar-filled bhakti vinyasa flow and lunar slow and restorative asana with deep extended shavasana relaxation
heart sharing dialogue, and dharma talks (please bring pen & journal)
Hanuman Chalisa Chanting
invocation mantras, kirtan/kirtan philosophy
teachings from the gurus, saints, great masters and scriptures
hands-on adjustments and heart-full partner yoga
affirmations to amplify the frequency of the loving heart
We will specifically focus upon and get clear with how we can truly LIVE IN THE SACRED wherever we may be. At the core of our experience we will invoke, celebrate, and praise the presence of the Love - known by many names in different cultures.

This immersion is open to all ages and all levels of yoga practitioners and will be grounded in a rich and mellow devotional mood of gratitude, compassion, peace, and spiritual upliftment. Thank you. We look forward to being together.

Community Workshop: The Convergence of Activism and Spirituality -- A New Era of Yoga Service with Rob Schware
We are the world! If, as practicing yogis, we are awake or spiritually conscious, we cannot possibly divorce ourselves from the world. Yoga teachers are increasingly taking yoga off the mat and "giving back" to their communities the benefits that they have been given by their teachers and their practice of yoga. This workshop is inspired by the growing number of social yoga activists who are paying it forward by providing yoga through service to communities where there are barriers to access health services. In this workshop we'll look at how yogis are expressing their unique contributions to creating a best possible future through yoga service, and hear a few of Hanuman's scholarship recipients give practical guidance for getting started in yoga service.

  • How to craft clear and respected boundaries with a generous heart; includes identifying the spiritual bubble and how to expand beyond, be genuinely inclusive, and curious about others. Learn how to stay aware that the world of yoga is one world within many.
  • How to be real, engaged, and a positive influencer in this time of social media, and how to identify who else is being real versus narcissistic or transactional.

The intention of this practice is to restore and deeply stretch the body and facilitate a true letting go into a profound state of cosmic relaxation and deep earth grounding. While relaxing into the asanas, Govind Das will guide participants through the doorway of the heart and Radha's sacred song will uplift the spirit. This practice is healing medicine for the hectic busy pace of modern day living.

Climate change is the essential issue of our times. There are many causes and effects of climate change, but at the root of them all is our relationship to mother earth and to all of nature. The yoga tradition along with other indigenous wisdom traditions has long held a deep reverence and understanding of a living and conscious Mother Earth (Bhumi Devi). That we are all entwined with Her; physically, energetically, mentally & spiritually; we are all her children. Now, more than ever, we must awaken and act for ourselves, future generations, and all of life. Both as individuals and as a community, we must become more aware of our actions and choices and how they affect the web of life, and recognize what we can all do to become earth activists, raise awareness, and join the global revolution for conscious change and planetary awakening for everyone.

Yoga: Suzanne Sterling: Yoga Off the Mat: Crafting Liberation and Leadership for Our Time
Limited Capacity full

This course is designed for anyone wanting to discover, refine or expand their purpose in the world and live a life dedicated to justice and inside out transformation. We in the yoga communities like to say that we stand for liberation. But what does that liberation look like and who is it available and accessible to? If our goal is collective liberation, this requires an on going commitment to a personal journey of introspection, healing and accountability that allow us to participate in an effective way. As we step into personal accountability for our own healing, we can then examine the social and systemic issues that shape our world view and actions. Then utilizing the powerful tools of embodiment, collaboration and connection, we can co-create a collective vision of a sustainable, just and joyful future for all beings. This class will move us through a full series of vinyasa flow warmups, standing poses, balance poses and closing poses, as we play and explore our edges- the limitations/fears that keep us hidden, as well as the opportunities/strengths needed to stand in purpose. We will then move off the mats and into a collective expression of the power and gift of community. The themes that we will explore will include:
Yoga for these times - this moment in history and the role of embodiment practices.
Who is yoga for? An inclusive approach to an evolving practice
Finding and refining your own purpose
Examining and healing personal and ancestral wounds
Trauma informed approaches to our work in the world
Becoming an advocate and finding your voice
Community engagement - the art of ritual for social change

Music: Govind Das & Radha
Spiritual traditions have long used song, music, and sound vibration as a method of prayer to enter the realm of the divine.  In the traditional path of yoga, this practice is called Kirtan - or devotional chanting. Through repetitiously chanting the names of God/Goddess from ancient India, Govind Das & Radha will guide you on a musical meditation and yogic ritual deep into the essence of Bhakti---the yoga of the Heart, the yoga of Love and Devotion. Through the grace of their teachers, Govind Das & Radha have uniquely melded ancient Indian mantras with heart-opening melodies,  playing traditional Indian instruments.  Kirtan is commonly described as a "jewel of a spiritual practice" because of its joyful, open-hearted, meditative, and communal feeling.  
“Govind Das's & Radha's kirtan flows like a waterfall of raw emotion, their sweetness and passion permeating every chant." -JAI UTTAL

Yoga: Suzanne Sterling: Re-membering Ourselves Together
Limited Capacity seats available

In our modern world, it is often easier to isolate, disconnect and compare ourselves rather than cultivate practices of community. Meanwhile a widespread hunger for experiences of the sacred becomes increasingly clear. Are you ready to deepen your connection to the sacred? Ready to release the dusty or damaging stories that keep you from unleashing your authentic self expression? Ready to cultivate the kind of connection and community that leads to authenticity? In this workshop we will discuss the history of ritual from ancient cultures and its evolution through the modern lens of yoga philosophy. We will then learn practical and powerful ritual skills, including grounding and centering, creating a sacred container, and catalyzing transformational practices that can be incorporated into your daily practice, enhance your teaching and help to build conscious community.
Ritual asks us not to transcend our lives but to dive deeper into our innate power and humble grace. It invites us to become our own spiritual authority and to stay awake and present as we create new pathways of being. Modern, co-creative ritual can bring ancient wisdoms back into our busy lives in meaningful, deeply felt, and healing ways. It is an act of courage, hope, and artistry. Join Suzanne for this juicy fusion of flow yoga, ecstatic movement, soulful singing, and rituals of reconnection.
