When Going Gets Crazy, The Crazy Get Yin

Yin Yoga is basically magic. It's a profound mind/body practice consisting of long held passive postures that stretch and hydrate the connective tissue of the body. It's therapeutic and accessible to almost anyone, no matter how beginner or advanced. Corresponding with Chinese medicine's meridian theory, the poses restore balance and harmony to your internal organs and energy pathways. Join us this weekend for a deep dive into the practice and theory of Yin Yoga.  We'll cover Chinese medicine and 5 Element Theory, Taoist Philosophy, Yoga Anatomy, the science of fascia, sequencing and teaching Yin and of course detailed explanations of Yin asanas.

Coloring Outside The Lines: The Yoga Revolution

What we call YOGA is changing rapidly these days, as it should. An essential tenet of yoga philosophy is rebelliousness.  Our ancient predecessors took a stand against commercialism and materialism. They defied convention and left the "normal" world behind as they headed to the ashrams or the mountains to seek deeper meaning. And now a new generation of yoga teachers is challenging things once again, both philosophically and anatomically. This weekend will be rich with discussion and practice.  We will explore the myriad ways that people are revolutionizing the physical practice of Asana, as well as how the status quo is being challenged when it comes to doctrine. It's a weekend to question everything, to seek new ways of opening the body and mind, and to get back to the real root of Yoga, radical transformation.

Upside Down Everything! 12:30-5:30

Whether you love it or you want to run out of the room when the teacher says "handstand"... this workshop is for you! We'll cover step by step practices that break down advanced and inverted poses of all sorts. Learn how to lessen fear (both yours and that of your students) and approach challenging poses with respect and lightheartedness. We'll go over the basics, of course, like headstand, handstand, shoulder stand and forearm stand. Learn how to prepare for it and prop it, every which way. Add the that a sprinkle of wild stuff (upside down backbends and things you've probably only seen in a book or on instagram!) just for fun, and you've got one heck of an awesome day!

The Great Outdoors: Yoga Field Trip Weekend

Join us for two yoga & hiking field trips! First though, on Friday night, we'll study the teachings and writings of historical and modern nature philosophers. You might be surprised at how much they intersect with yogic thought! We'll prepare for our weekend by discussing practices and rituals that you can use to strengthen your connection to the natural world. On Saturday we'll meet near the Mohonk Mountain house to do a yoga class in the fields (with a million dollar view!), followed by a hike up the epic Bonticou Crag trail. This is the best bang-for-your-buck trail in the Hudson Valley! You won't believe the views from the top. Then on Sunday we'll head to Vernooy Kill Falls where we'll do a moderate hike up the mountain to the gorgeous waterfalls where you can swim and lounge on the rocks. When we reach the falls, Kelly will tell you a story about a goddess who turned into a waterfall!

Mythical Sequencing

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. If you've already attended this immersion, do it again! The stories and sequencing exercises will be brand new!
