Summer Camp For Yogis 

IMG_0886-lores.jpg

Adults need to play too after all!

Summer is great to set some time aside just for you and your practices. It is a great time to get into the dirt of your body, the sweat of a good practice and the deliciousness that only a wild and spacious summer can bring.

Our time together will be restorative and exploratory. Grounded and fun. Expansive and connective.

Each half-day of yoga camp will begin with a 2-hour (ish) full-on asana exploration that deepens your foundations of practice and widens the possibilities of your body and breath. These classes will follow a progression and array of poses. Over the four days we will explore standing poses, arm balances, backbends, hip openers, inversions and forward folds. Following these lively and sane classes, will be a short break with time for tea, coffee, snacks (you are welcome to eat right out of the garden) and chatting. The second part of our day will be a creative arts project related to our mornings practice. Projects will be related to the theme of the day and involve drawing, painting, writing, singing, dancing, collaging and maybe even some bread baking. 

Think really good yoga in the morning with awesome people in a great little home-spun spot, a little snack, then creative time you rarely give yourself.

Yoga As Developmental Movement

JULY 15th-18th 2017

Explore the intersection of yoga asana and foundational somatic movement principles as they impact our movement patterns, psyche and development in this 4-day intensive.

Together we will explore developmental movement patterning as it relates to yoga asana to enrich, nourish and expand your practice. We will investigate foundational somatic principles from a variety of techniques including End Points, Sequencing Through, Felt Sense, The Five Fundamental Actions of Human Movement, Kinesphere and Planes of Movement.  All of these have related psychic features as well, which will be introduced and discussed.

These core teachings of Somatic Psychology will enhance even the most experienced of yoga teachers. You will come away more connected to your body as the magnificent vehicle of self inquiry and experience. You will garner exemplary tools and techniques to carry into your home practices and teaching.

Asana & Writing: A Weekend

with Guest Teacher Peach Friedman

September 15th-18th 2017

Rediscover your physical body as a vehicle to access your voice // Sense into your fat, skin, blood, bones, and organs…and listen to what they’re trying to tell you // Hone your language to more accurately reflect your message // Practice embodiment techniques to unlock silenced voices from within // Unravel lost inner landscapes and stand on a solid physical foundation: land in your own body. Know where you are now. Speak from that place.

 

In this 3-day program, acclaimed author and experienced yoga teacher, Peach Friedman, will progressively take you through a writing and movement immersion experience.

Through asana, movement, exercises + conversation, Peach will guide you through somatic awareness practices as well as physical movement exercises and offer specific writing prompts to inspire your engagement with the material.

Delicious, nourishing, locally grown and home-cooked organic food will be prepared with love and served for lunch on Friday and Saturday as well as a snack on Sunday. An extraordinary compliment to the other work of the days together. 

 

This course is ideal for you if you’re a…

  • Yoga teacher seeking a better understanding of the power of language, and want to speak effectively, accurately, and confidently, both when teaching as well as in your life;

  • Yogi/dancer/mover who wants to express the profound experiences you have while in your practice;

  • Writer who wants to get out of your head, and experience the body’s perspective;

  • Human interested in learning to speak or write more powerfully, and connect more honestly with your body.
