Pranayama 101

with Tori G. Newburn

The one thing that is with us always is our breath. However, most of us go throughout the day without an awareness of how we breathe. Many of us do know the power of taking a simple deep breath - it is immediately calming and centering. When we start to cultivate the practice of intentional breath control and spend time each day connecting to our breath, we embark down the road to deepen the connection of our life force. It has been said that we can go weeks without food, days without water, but hardly even minutes without our breath. Together let's explore the vast knowledge, ancient practices and contemporary science behind one of our most vital daily functions.

Emotional Anatomy: from feeling to healing

Emotional Anatomy: from feeling to healing

with Jill Case, 500 e-ryt

Most of us begin our yoga journey working with the physical body, familiarizing ourselves with the physical anatomy and the poses themselves. As our practice evolves, we are invited into a relationship with the emotional aspects the practice.

Just as yoga offers us the opportunity to heal physically, creating strength and mobility where we once were fragile and stiff, the practice can also help us experience healing in the emotional layers of our beings. In this weekend intensive, learn to utilize the practice to gain deeper insight into how the emotional layers and the physical body are linked together. Instead of turning away from what we feel, lean in and listen.

Off the Mat & Into your Life

with Tori Greising

We all know that we can’t simply “go to yoga.”  Yoga is a way of life!  Yet, pulls of society can take us straight from who we are on our mat to the unrecognizable. It seems as though the chaos of our surroundings can be a slippery slope away from the lessons we learn while we're practicing. 

In this lifestyle workshop, Tori focuses the conversation around all of our practices - on and off the mat.  Not a one-size-fits-all, this workshop is about exploring and uncovering how to live YOUR yoga off the mat.
