Saturday, July 10: Aerial Yoga Workshop
An exhilarating workshop experience.... Expand. Deepen. Connect. Embrace. Enjoy. Love. Liberate.
With the brilliant enthusiasm of your inner five year old brimming, we jump right in to an exploration that feels more like playtime! Combining the wisdom of yoga with the best ‘airplane ride’ ever, we’ll immerse ourselves within the world of acrobatic yoga!
This practice will introduce you to amazing new ways of developing awareness, connection, courage, strength, and flexibility. It is a unique style of partner yoga that teaches one partner to be stable, aware, and directive (the “base”) while the other partner learns to open, surrender deeply, and trust (the “flyer”). The workshop will cover, for new practitioners, numerous entrances into several unique mounts (initial positions), key requirements to be an effective base and/or flyer, safety points, and simple transitions to link in-flight postures. For those that have experienced this type of yoga before we will be layering in intermediate mounts, postures, and transitions to satisfy your appetite for adventure.
Is this for everyone? For sure! No experience is required. Only an openness to physical contact with others. If that is a sensitive area for you, bring a friend or partner that you're comfortable making contact with.

Sunday, July 11: Meditation Workshop
Living as Meditation An exploration into the art and science of Meditation
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. - Rumi
We are Always Already Perfect… Always Already Whole. Our essential Nature is nothing less than Pure Love, Light, Freedom, and Peace. And yet separation and suffering is often our experience. Ignorance, ego, craving, aversion, and fear of death underlie much of our minds activities. For thousands of years, countless humans have journeyed inwards to resolve this sense of separation and suffering – to remember the Truth. Countless teachings and practices have arisen in response to this seeking.
This workshop will introduce you to practical meditation and contemplation techniques that are elegantly designed for reawakening to your Truth – your essential Nature. Simple and profound, these techniques will also serve you deeply in everyday life by promoting relaxation, openness, clarity, focus, centeredness, and peace of mind.
No experience is required. Bring your openness for Self-inquiry and exploration.
