Mythical Sequencing

September 8-10, 2017


​You'll get the family tree of deities, more stories than you can imagine and mantras galore but the real focus here is how to craft classes that are poetic and sincere.  Learn how use the stories of yoga to deepen your understanding of the philosophical underpinnings of the asana practice.  We will use worksheets and group discussion to analyze Hindu myths and then you'll practice pulling out important themes to use in your teaching. You'll leave with at least a few ready-to-go classes and lots of inspiration to create more! We'll also play with sequencing around poems and peak poses.

Bhakti Backbends

September 29-Oct 1, 2017


How do we stay open hearted and committed to our spiritual path in the difficult moments? The devotional poet Mirabai gives us a hint when she says, “The heat of midnight tears will bring you to God.”  Bhakti Yoga is the Yoga of Love and Connection.  Infused with Bhakti poetry, Rumi’s wisdom and Krishna lore, this weekend will open you up in more ways than one!  There will be some of Kelly’s signature storytelling, a little chanting and more backbending asanas than you've probably ever seen!  For students of all levels.  All you need to bring is an open mind and a willingness to stretch your heart.  If we approach the poses step by step, the impossible becomes possible.  Let's explore this powerful and important category of poses, finding ways to make heart opening both a joyful and profound experience for everyone.  We'll dive into the anatomy of a backbend, the proper way to prepare for challenging postures, inverted backbends and therapeutic backbends, hands on assists and how to modify postures and guide people safely into the poses.  You'll not only leave with an understanding of the structure of a backbend, but also a more intimate grasp of the Yoga of Devotion.

​Your Back Pocket Class

​Creating and Refining the PERFECT class for YOU!

January 19-21


By the end of this workshop you'll have a no-fail sequence that perfectly speaks to who you are as a teacher.  We'll talk about timing, eliminating the excess, and how to get rid of some of the fluffy "yoga speak" that all of us are  occasionally prone to! You'll leave with a class that will be an instant classic in your repertoire, as well as a better understanding of smart sequencing and clear communication.  We'll spend a good amount of time getting to the heart of WHY you teach and what your intention is when you step into the classroom.  Once that becomes clear, creating powerful classes becomes second nature!

Chant and Be Happy!

Kirtan Workhop

March 16-18, 2018


It's harmonium happy hour, all day, every hour!  Mantras of all sorts take the main stage in this workshop.  If harmonium is new to you, you'll get the super basics and enough know-how to lead a chant in front of your students.  If you're already playing and singing, we'll work on refining your kirtan-leading abilities and adding new melodies to your repertoir.  And don't worry, no harmonium needed.  We've got some to spare! You'll also learn how to play basic karats (finger cymbals) and drum.  On Sunday we'll be visited by  Mindra, the harmonium peddler who will teach us some chants and have harmoniums for you to play and purchase if you desire.  The weekend ends with a joyous group kirtan!
