Emanation: A Practice from Your Center
Limited Capacity filling up

Your core is your fortress and your stronghold, yet many of us have such a hard time connecting to this place within the body. If you’ve ever felt insecure about your mid-section, you’re not alone. Forging deep and true strength in this area has nothing to do with building six-pack abs, and everything to do with finding balance and stability within challenge. This workshop focuses on circumferential stability, engaging not only the anterior chamber of the body, but also the lateral side body and the posterior chamber as well. You’ll find ways to embrace and move from your center with confidence.

We work so hard in our warrior poses and all those asanas that require us to give ourselves completely.

Together, let’s become Warriors of Love in order to bring peace and love to all those in need. Come prepared to sweat and sing and wake up what’s long been forgotten!

Heart Like A River : Embodying Our Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

To limit our yoga practice to our mat, to a place, to a time is to miss all that yoga has to offer us. Yoga has always asked us, from the beginning, to take great vows in our efforts to embody the practice, to be living yoga. This workshop will be a physical flow linking all aspects of our being accompanied by #getyourfestivalon rockin' playlist. Elements of Kundalini, Ashtanga and Vinyasa will all appear as we embrace those aspects of the practice that are meant to be lived in the world. It’s not only body, but heart and mind. How can we make this practice stick? One of Thich Nhat Hanh’s first teachings on how to love makes the comparison of what happens when we put a handful of salt into a cup of water versus what happens when we put a handful of salt into a river. No one can drink the cup of water but the river is immense and is able to receive, embrace and transform the salt. Our hearts are the same. When our hearts are small and tight, we have little to offer, we suffer. Yet when our hearts soften and expand, we move beyond our limits. We embody understanding and compassion. We can hold others, as they are and they have a chance to transform. This practice lives in the heart. Participants of this class will be eligible for 2 YPLE Continuing Education Credit Hours, Yoga Alliance Approved (YPLE – Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle, Ethics). how can our practice sustain us in our efforts to be the best version of ourselves? What aspects of our practice keep our heart open? Keep our heart moving in the direction of being a river, rather than a cup? How does our practice support our efforts to be more inclusive, more tolerant, more able to transform the salt?

Beautifully Blissed Out
Limited Capacity filling up

A deep Yin Practice, artistically woven and challenging followed by a delicious Yoga Nidra. All Levels Welcome. Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice. Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. While initially this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to twenty minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice. Yoga Nidra is an ancient but little-known yogic practice that's becoming increasingly popular as both a form of meditation and a mind-body therapy. It is a systematic form of guided relaxation, yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage. ... The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state called samadhi.

Unapologetic Power
Limited Capacity seats available

There are several connotations of the word power and many, (for good reason), can be triggering. But we all hold within us an innate sense of power that stems from a knowing of self and a dedicated connection to a bigger picture. While we all possess this type of power, often the pathway to that source can become blocked or shadowed from life experiences unprocessed or un-actualized. Unapologetic Power is a workshop designed to move deeply into the practice of mindfully and reverently creating, holding and directing our power in the name of and in service to Love and is a critical tool in the development of both our individual and collective wellbeing. It is an exploration and application of movement, breath, meditation and writing exercises designed to remember and refine our innate ability to tap into the source of all things so that you can bring the power of your presence into all that you do. Asana, lecture, journaling. All levels welcome.

Breakdown to Breakthrough
Limited Capacity filling up

Yoga is the process of disrupting and disorienting the body so as to discover new pathways towards change. Around the world yogis are reinventing the rules of engagement – showing up in ways that are more conscious, compassionate and creative. Navigating this time in our lives and in the world does not require us to cultivate more security, rather it calls us to buckle up and embrace the chaos. Only then, can we know where we are so that we can know where we are going. The beauty is in the breakdown.

The Radical Act of Self Care
Limited Capacity seats available

In yoga, the "self" truly is a reflection of everyone that we interact with; there is no separation and we are inextricably linked. The current cultural context is one that is greatly imbalanced, causing dysfunction, separation, isolation, trauma and harm individually and collectively. Self-Care is a radical act of resistance.It is time for us to consider how we want to more intentionally care for ourselves and others. Through the practice of yoga, this workshop will focus on the relationship that you have with yourself and how that informs your relationships with others. In this workshop we will explore what it means to make space to practice self-care and what it means to care for the collective good. We will set intentions focused on living into the highest versions of ourselves, and make space to heal our hearts so that we can more clearly see our connection with others.

We all have a few things stored away… Secrets, loss, negative self-talk or regret. But what happens when our inner landscape is piled high with this kind of excess baggage? Not only does the build up become tension and stress in the body, but also the route of clear seeing, right knowing and courageous doing can become blocked. Join Carrington Jackson, for a unique and liberating experience… Fire Practice: The Art and Ritual of Letting Go. This session is centered around the energy of purification and transformation of body, mind and spirit. We will focus on building heat to rid the body of excess toxins and tension on both the physical and energetic levels. We’ll unblock the pathways that lead to understanding and self-trust and work to break through habitual patterns that historically disconnect us from purpose or passion. The practice will begin with a meditation on the obstacles or clutter that we’re holding on to, followed by a detoxifying sequence that will focus on twists, backbends & core work designed to rinse away tangible & intangible toxins. Towards the end of our practice we’’ll ritualize our letting go by tossing into the flames that which no longer serves us. Asana, lecture, journaling. All levels welcome.

It is also the framework of our pranic bodies, and when consciousness spirals unobstructed upward through the chakras, we are said to have the experience of yoga, the merging of the two twisting opposites. Twisting in an asana class detoxes the body. Twists tone the abdominal muscles, squeeze out impurities, wring out ignorance, and flush out the internal organs.
