Heart of Presence - A Yoga Journey Through The Chakras

8-Week Series w/ Diane Sherman


The gift of our presence is the best thing we can offer the world. And yet, how do we “become present?”

The exploration in this 8-week series, is to understand the Chakras and what each energy center represents and how to work with each center. We will learn what each Chakra corresponds to physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. And we will learn how to use our yoga practice to open each chakra, using asana, pranayama and meditation as our tools. Classes will also include handouts about the chakras as well as personal sharing from the collective members.

During the week, we will have journaling exercises to support the opening of each energetic center, and to discover our strengths and where we need support. We’ll work with a variety of exercises to unblock each chakra so we can live with the utmost of integrity for our soul’s purpose.

The vision for this workshop is to help us release stuck energy that keeps us from being present in our daily lives and engaging from our most authentic place. (Limit 20 people)

Kirtan w/ Susan Jane Hall

Kirtan is an ancient form of Yoga, Bhakti Yoga. Chanting mantra is considered to be a refined and powerful way to meditate. It is also uplifting and joyful; the sound attunes the body/mind as you flow with the melody & rhythm. The performers & the concert-goers create the experience together, one harmonious sacred sound. The ancient chants contain powerful renewing & transformative energy that help us reconnect with the Divine, the Life Force that resides within each of us. Singing is the HEART of kirtan, sing from the heart and the sound always resonates beautifully. You do not need to be a professional singer, if you can make sound, you can chant!

“Kirtan is a means of finding our way back to the core of our Being, to our heart, and to our connection with each other.” ~Ragani

Intuitive Teaching for Teachers w/ Anna Molgard

This course is designed to help yoga teachers expand their abilities to teach directly to the needs of the students in their classes. Using the experiential learning model as a foundation, teachers will explore ways to teach classes using their intuition. They will also learn strategies to adapt class plans in order to shift directions in class based on their observations of students and their spoken and unspoken needs. The first session will describe the underlying theoretical foundation for this style of teaching and some foundational experiences. Teachers will receive specific assignments to explore this method in their teaching for two weeks.

In the second session, they will experience a practicum style format to share learning, receive collective wisdom through discussion and demonstration, and have an opportunity to demonstrate their learning in this unique teaching style. Developed by Don Stapleton, Ph.D., this method has been expanded by Anna Molgard, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500 who will lead this course. Attendance at both sessions are required. Yoga Alliance CE available for RYTs - 6 credits. Course limited to 6 participants.

Somatic Yoga & Sound Bath w/ Stefani Van Deest

Soothing Somatic Yoga is a therapeutic and integrative moving meditation that brings awareness to areas of unconscious and habituated tensions within the muscular skeletal system. The sequence of exercises are designed to help you regain voluntary control of your muscles by moving slowly, gently, and with the least possible effort. This practice is accessible to all levels of fitness and flexibility. Mostly seated, or lying down, this is a very restorative and internal process of learning and exploration.

Crystal Singing bowls are made from 99.992% pure crushed quartz which are used to amplify, transform, store, focus, and transfer energy. The notes of each bowl are tuned to specific vibrational frequencies (notes) found within the human body. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound. As the crystal bowls are played, the oscillation and resonance of the sound vibration moves through our physical bodies and penetrates into our cells. Our thoughts are energy. When thought energy blends with the sound of the quartz crystals it can have a profound effect on our organs, tissues and cells as well as the circulatory, endocrine, and metabolic systems.
