"I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor."~Henry David Thoreau

Breathe, sweat, flow, dristhi, and bandhas.

The breath we use for asana practice is called ujjayi breathing. The ujjayi breath is an audible breath that has a soothing, rhythmic, oceanic quality.

Muscular motion creates heat (tapas) that softens your tissues and makes you malleable. The word Tapas is derived from the root Sanskrit verb 'tap' which means 'to burn', and evokes a sense of 'fiery discipline' or 'passion'. ... Just as with all aspects of the Sutras though, Tapas has relevance both on and off the yoga mat.

Each pose flows into the next, connecting smoothly with the breath. Flow is the absence of resistance.

Drishti (IPA: [ d̪r̩ʂʈi ]; Sanskrit: दृष्टि; IAST:dṛṣṭi), or focused gaze, is a means for developing concentrated intention. It relates to the fifth limb of yoga (pratyahara) concerning sense withdrawal, as well as the sixth limb dharana relating to concentration.

In every pose we activate mulabandha (root lock) and uddiyana bandha, or "upward lifting lock". A "bandha" is a lock that anchors you into your stability and strength.

From: 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm Room: Studio 1 Our bodies have constantly transitioning moods, just like our minds, and these poses allow you to connect into what's going on in it today. What is your body feeling? Are you stiff and sore, full of knots? Or are you relaxed, maybe tired? Where is your mind? Are you present on the mat or are you somewhere else? Are you stuck in your head? Maybe you feel energized, or maybe yoga is the last thing you feel like doing and you want to just run out of the room. You've gotten yourself onto the mat, and that was the hardest thing you'll have to do. Now simply let go. How much you let go, is how much you flow. Follow your breath as it guides you into the present moment, and everything else will melt smooth like butter. Just breathe and come into the present moment-the open door-way to that transformative space where personal growth and healing happens. $30 Workshop Fee 2 Hours CECs available for students on the PATH TO NIRVANA (300 H Yoga Teacher Training) 2 Hours CECs available for students on the ENERGY PATH (200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training) photo credit: Jacqueline Zema

GONG VINYASA FLOW
THE GONG EXPERIENCE WITH REIKI

Gong Vinyasa Flow

6:15PM-7:30PM
$20

    This is a challenging practice where Yin meets Yang. We move thru traditional flow asanas (poses), particularly warrior poses, at a slower more mindful pace in order to correct structural imbalances and locate tension, weakness & blockages. Once we "tune in", our partner the gong, is used to help transform or remove those "things that no longer serve". 
 
The Gong Experience with Reiki (bath/meditation)
8PM-9:30PM
$30

    Gongs have been used since ancient times and it's vibrational sound is the perfect vehicle to inner space. Experience the journey that the Gongs shall take you on. Leave all expectations and preconceived ideas behind. Plunge into the depths of your consciousness and sub-consciousness on the waves of sound.
   
    In every indigenous culture some type of "laying of the hands" or energy work has been performed. Since the re-discovery of Reiki, we have seen it make great strides into our American culture and remarkable inroads into western medicine.

Working In Not Just Working Out. Go Inside Yoga. Introduction to the Koshas

"When you are heading into new territory, it is helpful to have a map. Hiking in Yosemite, you need a topography map showing the mountainous terrain. In New York City, you need to know the city blocks and major sites to orient yourself. Within yoga, a different guide is needed—one that charts the landscape of the self. The koshas, “layers” or “sheaths,” make up one such map, charted by yogic sages some 3,000 years ago. Written about in the Upanishads, the kosha model navigates an inner journey—starting from the periphery of the body and moving towards the core of the self: the embodied soul. While this may sound esoteric, the koshas are both a practical and profound contemplative tool that can help you deepen your yoga practice and the quality of your participation in life. You can use the kosha map the same way that you would when you travel—to orient yourself before you head out on the journey of your practice or when you are getting lost or stuck (e.g., in the chatter of the mind or in the discomfort of a pose). As we explore the koshas, you will find that you have been here before, and that your final destination, the anandamaya kosha, is the body of bliss." ~Shiva Rea

"According to the map of the koshas, we are composed of five layers, sheaths, or bodies. Like Russian dolls, each metaphorical “body” is contained within the next: annamaya kosha—the physical body; pranamaya kosha—the breath or life-force body; manomaya kosha—the mental body; vijanamaya kosha—the wisdom body; and anandamaya kosha—the bliss body. This is not a literal anatomical model of the layers of the body, although you can find physiological parallels to the koshas, like the nervous system and the “mental” body. As a metaphor, the koshas help describe what it feels like to do yoga from the inside—the process of aligning what in contemporary language we often call “mind, body, and spirit” or “mind-body connection.”

From the kosha perspective, yoga helps us bring body, breath, mind, wisdom, and spirit (bliss) into harmony. Like a tapestry, the koshas are interwoven layers. You have no doubt experienced this in your own body: When you are tense or strained, your breath becomes shallow, your mind becomes easily agitated, and wisdom and joy seem far away. When you are filled with joy and communion with life, these feelings permeate your entire being. Separating the strands of the tapestry is a way to look at how your whole being can become integrated or in discord. The kosha map is not a rigid truth but a template for exploring the mystery of being alive. Let’s bring the koshas to life now by seeing how this map applies to hatha yoga practice grounded in asana."~Shiva Rea

Yoga Nidra with Gina Matteucci

Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is an ancient meditation practice which allows participants to enjoy complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation while exploring the deeper layers of the subconscious and unconscious mind bringing an incredible calmness, quietness and clarity to the practitioner. In this deep sleep meditation your conscious mind will gently guide you through thought patterns, emotions, images, and sensations 
The practice of Yoga Nidra reveals our innate intelligence and inherent wisdom which burns away negative patterns of conditioning, thus creating the space for the spontaneous physical, psychological and interpersonal transformations that can occur as a result of this practice. 

Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations and is beneficial for people suffering from diseases such as hypertension, stress, diabetes, migraines, asthma, and digestive disorders. It has helped countless people release patterns of stress to help boost overall health, to sleep better and to lead more contended lives.
This 2 hour workshop will consist of discussion and a light gentle yoga practice to open and prepare the body for a 45 min meditation. Please wear comfortable clothes. A blanket will be provided, however it is recommended that you bring an extra pillow or cushion for extra comfort. Please bring an eye pillow or a washcloth/small towel to cover your eyes.

“We use Yoga Nidra to investigate and go beyond our limiting beliefs and conditioning, so that we may live a contented life, free of conflict, anxiety, fear, dissatisfaction, and suffering. And in its ultimate form, we use Yoga Nidra to unravel the sacred mystery of life and reveal the secret of enlightenment.” — Richard Miller, Ph.D.

Yoga Adjustment Workshop. An Energy Exchange

Learn the principles of giving powerful, safe, and transformational yoga asana adjustments. Developing sensitivity to directing prana (life force energy) in asana can transform your practice as a teacher and student. Instead of focusing on learning the so-called “correct adjustment" for each pose, learn the principles that will empower you to create, improvise, and customize adjustments safely and effectively. Yoga teachers and longtime students will benefit from this workshop. “If we experience asana as an unfolding continuum of interconnection, the assist will lead us seamlessly into and out of each asana.

In yoga, there are actually two beings interacting together on various levels of consciousness to foster a decrease in avidya, “mis-knowing,” and an increase in vidya, or the “knowing” principle.

-learn to see the adjustment first, where do they need length or space in their body or breath
-learn to use the variety of tools (body parts) that you have available
-use your own weight, good body mechanics to both feel and keep you safe
-build confidence through different exercises and practice -play with the balance between the student working and you working
-and much much more…

Yoga Thai Massage
With Bryan Langsdale, LMT 

Call 216-666-1945 to schedule an appointment! ​

$90 for 60 Minutes $135 for 90 Minutes ​ $150 for Personalized Yoga Thai Massage plus Sound Healing ​with Live Instruments and Tuning Forks The experience of receiving Thai massage is often described as having yoga done to you, it will make you feel great both physically and energetically. 2,500 years ago a dynamic bodywork therapy based upon yoga and Ayurveda practices, appeared in the temples of Thailand. This therapeutic art was directly rooted in the Indian healing traditions of Ayurvedic medicine. The father founder of Thai Yoga Massage, Jivaka Kumarbhaccha was a renowned doctor and yogi, he treated the Buddha, among others. After the Buddha’s death, the earliest Buddhist monks travelled to Southeast Asia and were accompanied by Ayurvedic doctors. These doctors practiced a healing art, that would later evolve into traditional Thai Massage. ​ The practitioner guides the client through a series of yoga postures, while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy (‘Sen’) lines and pressure points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically. Thai Yoga Massage is performed on a mat on the floor; both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing allowing ease of movement and flexibility.
