Embodying the Heart: A Restorative/Nidra Odyssey

Online via Zoom, January 23rd 2021

Join Kristine Whittle and Jeremy Wolf for their 10th edition of this collaborative journey.

In a world driven by productivity, one’s value is often acknowledged by wearing a badge of “busyness,” which can lead to a dysfunctional lifestyle and eventually illness. Deep healing becomes available when we are able to stop long enough to listen to the wisdom of our own hearts. Through self-care we can reclaim our true creative power and restore balance.

In this workshop, we’ll explore practices that help bring balance to the nervous system and quiet to the mind. This will be a journey into the abode of the heart and back out again through the deeply nourishing and interwoven practices of Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidrā. When action flows from the heart, rather than the mind, we can meet the world with compassion, understanding and purpose.

Props needed:
~Yoga Mat or Sleeping Pad
~1 Bolster (or two bed pillows)
~2-3 blankets (mexican blankets or similar, twin size)
~2 blocks (or 2 small pillows or rolled up towels)
~Eye pillow or hand towel

If you would like to listen to some relaxing music, please play on your home sound system.
Wear warm, comfortable clothes and socks.

The Science of Prana

Online via Zoom, May 7-9th 2021

This will be a deep dive into the science of breath and prana in yoga practice. We’ll look at various methods and the impact of working with prana in asana, pranayama and meditation.

The Subtle Science of Practice – Friday 5:30-8:30pm MST
The various tools of yoga (asana, meditation, pranayama, etc.) each carry a specific energetic signature (quality/effect). As we build our sensitivity to yoga practice “as an experience” we notice the outcome of different practices can have dramatically different effects. We’ll discuss some basic models for helping us categorize these tools in order to create practices that inspire profound shifts.
Learn:
– Krishnamacharya’s 6 categories of poses based on form/function
– General energetic effects of different yogic tools
– The 3 Gunas (attributes) that shape all of experience

Pranayama: The Science of Breath – Saturday 1-4pm MST
The breath is our constant connection to the life sustaining force of prana. It is said that the quickest way to shape our physiology is through the breath. By understanding that both mind and body are constantly informed by the quality of how we breathe, we can skillfully deepen and empower our asana, pranayama and meditation practices.
Learn:
– How breath extends the reach of asana into the psychological dimension
– The psychology and physiology of inhale/exhale and retention/suspension
– How to build and progress in pranayama practice

Bandha: The Seals of Transformation – Sunday 9am-12pm MST
To utilize the full potential of prana, we must learn to contain it and direct it intentionally. The bandhas, or energetic locks we create in the body, give us the capacity to harness prana in ways that create the deepest levels of purification and transformation.
Learn:
– What the bandhas are and how to perform them individually and in asana
– How to awaken, enliven, and direct energy through use of bandhas
– Why bandhas are key in kundalini practices and the process of awakening

Attend any or all sessions
Cost: $54/session or $149 for all three.
All classes will be on Zoom
