About Druminyasa (article on Wanderlust Blog)

Watch Video!

Drumming was the earliest form of tribal communication and has been used to celebrate significant ceremonial gatherings in many primitive cultures. The beat of the drums can be used to call in good energy, remove bad energy and put one’s mind, body and spirit in a hypnotic and meditative state. Feel the vibrations of the drums as you connect breath, heartbeat, mind & body to your practice.

How much time do you spend moving towards where you want to be versus being content with where you are? Where can you create space in your life? What would that space allow you to let in? What do you cling to (mentally/physically)? How could letting go of this allow you to let yourself live more fully and deeply? Explore these questions and perhaps begin to work towards answers as you join Tara (Becky) for two hours of exploring the philosophy behind Santosha, the second of the five Niyamas. We will partake in journaling and discussion, and flow through a Vinyasa practice. This will be followed by various practices that encourage finding that place of true acceptance and contentment, including progressive relaxation, visualization, and yoga nidra.

Adaptions for Everybody – A Special Weekend for Yoga Teachers with Jill Loftis & Kimberly Vest

$300 – $325

As yoga teachers we often encounter students who have some sort of physical limitations. One student cannot touch their toes as they have issues with their back, another cannot be on their knees due to a previous injury and yet another cannot raise their arms over their head due to tight shoulders, and these challenges go on and on.

During this workshop, you will work with individual poses and learn how to adapt each pose by utilizing many different variations within the pose. You will explore different conditions such as back and shoulder issues, knee problems and balance issues as well as look at the benefits
of various props, chairs and working at a wall to create comfort and accessibility for a wide variety of poses. You and the other students will be challenged to create various sequences and adapt them for specific classes and student's needs.

This workshop is a great for any yoga teacher that wants to deepen their teaching knowledge. Asana practice allows us to work through our samskaras. When we train and challenge the physical body, we in turn calm the mind, when the mind is calm, we connect with Soul. As a yoga teacher you may have students who are ready to take their asana practice to the next level and a skilled yoga teacher should be ready to guide them there. Even if you do not practice advanced poses yourself, you can still safely and skillfully teach advanced poses to your students. This workshop will teach you about creating safe boundaries, walk you through important preparatory poses, provide you with accurate cueing and model how to safely spot and assist your students.

Most of us grew up with a particular religious doctrine, a way of looking at “God” or the “way things work.” There are parts of religious systems that are beautiful and sustaining; and there are parts of them that are damaging. We need to discern what we believe, and what we do not believe, in order to weave ourselves back into a true Spiritual connection with The Divine (however it is that we experience that energy).

Join Jill Loftis to explore ways to heal and reconnect to your Spiritual self. Reawaken to the beauty of ancient symbols and practices; and allow yourself to discover your own personal faith practices and path.

Lecture and discussion, followed by a brief forgiveness ritual; open to all.

November 9-10,2019 & December 7-8,2019

This 30 hour professional training introduces the foundational principles and practices of Restorative Breathwork.

The training focuses on the breath’s essential role in calming the nervous system and stilling the mind. This quality of stillness reconnects us to our True Self, fostering personal transformation and spiritual awareness. Emphasis is on assisting students in acquiring a degree of personal mastery of the breath practices introduced in this training to support the development of professional skills. This empowering and transformative program creates the experiential framework for vibrant and profound experiences that will enrich a personal and professional practice for years to come.

Ecstatic dance, also known as free-form dance, is about tuning into your body and allowing it to move in the way it wants to move. For some bodies it may mean twirling and leaping across the dance floor. And for some bodies it may mean more subtle movements- tiny, gentle movements that support your healing. Ecstatic dance is a liberating atmosphere, and is not about dancing in any particular way. Based loosely on the profound work of Gabrielle Roth, ecstatic dance has pollinated hundreds communities throughout the world. In a reflection of Roth's work, five currents or themes (5Rhythms) parallel the music selected for the hour of practice, often referred to as a "wave". Dance waves can be powerfully cathartic and healing for both the individual dancer and the community. No dance partner or prior dance experience needed!

$5

One of the niyamas (positive duties) of yogic tradition is svadhyaya (self-study). This book club will undertake the study of texts that are intended to advance one's understanding of how to apply yogic principles to life beyond the mat. Our January selection is The Great Work of Your Life: A Guide for the Journey to Your True Calling by Stephen Cope. This book explores how to apply the principles of the Bhagavad Gita to discover your true calling, or dharma, by exploring the lives of contemporary and historical figures such as Harriet Tubman, Walt Whitman, and Jane Goodall, to name a few. Previous reading of the Bhagavad Gita is not required, as Cope explains the relevant concepts in the text.
