Dirty Little Secrets: the dark side of yoga, enlightened living and living in the Light

October 26-November 8 2014 COHORT REGISTRATION CLOSED

We often begin yoga as a way to turn towards the Light, the Goodness and the deeper understanding of who we are. Whether we begin in hopes of healing an injury of body, or a broken heart, or unsettled soul, we set out on this journey as a way to remember our wholeness, lighten our beings and feel Good in life and body.

And then…

Somewhere along the path of practice we discover its not all rainbow and unicorns “out there” or “in here”. We see the limitations of a yoga practice. We get injured. We get hurt. We get a broken heart. We become jaded. We get angry. We loose faith.  We act out. We ignore. We pretend. We come up with great strategies of non-resolution. We become part of a yoga culture for better and for worse. 

So what do we do with all THAT?

Summer Session 2015


How To Keep Your Shit Together: and help everyone along the way

It is said that in our modern age "we are all in shock". We do not always know who and with what trauma story someone might walk into our class. Rather than being afraid, we can simply take this as opportunity to educate ourselves as teachers. We can build classes and teach in a "Psychologically Sound" way so that our class is for everyone, regardless of story. We can also continue to work through our own patterns and build new connections within our psyches and bodies to such a degree that our very presence in the classroom is a healing itself.
