THE ART OF MASTERFUL LIVING Through Yoga
A Weekend Training with Todd Norian
Saturday & Sunday, May 30-31
Saturday, 12-3pm ~ The Art of Masterful Living: Embodying the Five Elements Through Yoga
We are all made of the five elements: earth, water, fire, air, and sky. Masterful living is achieved when these elements are balanced within. When out of balance, you may feel “contracted” (too much earth), “under water” emotionally stressed out (too much water), unmotivated (not enough fire), anxious and fearful (too much air), or ungrounded (too much sky). The Ashaya Yoga™ practice brings about a flowing integration of all five elements that leaves you feeling strong, confident, peaceful, openhearted, and ready to engage with life in positive, uplifting ways. During this workshop you will rebalance the five elements within your body and rediscover the true freedom and ecstasy that life is meant to be. Practice a powerful rainbow of grounding, flowing, exhilarating, and expansive postures that bring you back home to your heart
Saturday, 4-7pm ~ Precise Alignment and Refinement of Asana Using the Five Elements
Refine your alignment technique in a variety of poses using the Five Elements and Four Essentials of Ashaya Yoga™.
Ashaya (AH-shy-ah), a Sanskrit word that means, “abode of the heart”, blends precise, biomechanical and therapeutic alignment techniques with empowering and spiritually uplifting heart virtues that support a total awakening and harmony of body, mind, and spirit. During this workshop you explore the subtle and profound alignment techniques that balance that balance all five elements within your body and creates both stability and freedom such that you move and stretch more gracefully. Up-level your efficiency in asana skills through a variety of categories of asana: standing poses, hip openers, backbends, forward bends, and twists
Sunday, 9:30a-12:30p ~ Yoga For Your Core: Build Confidence, Inner Strength, and Power
The core is defined as the power center of your body that pulses with the primordial energy of the universe. When you learn how to properly engage your core, you feel energized and clear throughout the day. Your spine becomes aligned and supported and you release chronic pain caused by stress and unhealthy posture habits. During this workshop you learn the details of core work and explore the practice of core with good alignment through a variety of asanas including standing poses, hip openers, arm balances, backbends, forward bends, and twists. Have fun working at your own comfort level
Sunday, 2-5pm ~ Yoga For Self-Nurturance and Rejuvenation: Restorative Poses, Pranayama, Mantra, and Meditation
Explore the rejuvenating effect of yoga to restore and rebalance your entire being – body, mind, and heart. Practice a sequence of active restorative poses (relaxing poses that require some energy to align your body properly), passive restorative poses (supported poses where you can just let go fully), therapeutic poses, pranayama, mantra, and meditation to bring about a very deep and relaxing state of focused serenity
Single workshop $55; any two workshops $100; any three workshops $145; all four workshops $185. Online preregistration strongly recommended

SHAMANIC JOURNEY CIRCLE with Comma Williams
Sunday, June 14, 7-9pm
Shamanic journeying is a tool that has been traditionally used by indigenous shamans for the healing of individuals and communities.

We know now that anyone can learn to journey, to connect with their own helping guides and spirits in non-ordinary reality in order to get answers to personal questions, solve problems, open creativity, see new ways of being in the world and obtain healing information for themselves and their community. Join Comma Williams for this journey circle where we will travel into non-ordinary reality and ask for information to help us get clarity about our path for this coming year. At the end of the journey you will have an opportunity to create a visual representation of your journey, to help ground it in ordinary reality, to make it visible in this world. $15 or class card

Wednesdays, June 17 - August 5, 7:15-9:30pm,
plus one all-day class on Sunday, July 26, 9-4
Mindfulness isn’t so much a tool or technique, but a different way of being. When we pay attention to our present moments, we start to see ourselves and our world more clearly. Instead of being driven by worry, anxiety, or feeling pressured, we begin to choose our responses more wisely. We find our way to a more balanced and centered life, guided by our inner strengths and values rather than old habits and reactions. This 8-week series is a thorough introduction to the art of mindfulness. It’s based on Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn's pioneering work in mind-body medicine originated at the UMass Medical Center. $450 – preregistration with Sunada required
