Details

Based on Shiva Rea’s Wave Theory, this vinyasa training will go over how to create classes based on “peak poses” as well as classes based on Bhav (feeling, mood). There will be a two hour practice and then discussion each day. We will go over vinyasa krama (steps) for more intermediate/advanced poses to offer in open level classes. For teachers and open to students looking to create a home practice.

Clara believes that much of the spiritual practice is about ‘lila’, cosmic play. When we play, we open ourselves to the unfolding while in the process. It is less about the goal and more about the evolution.

~ WHAT IS TANTRA? ~

Tantra is a path for people wanting to know themselves, deepen awareness and celebrate all aspects of life. The word Tantra means “to weave, to stretch, to expand, leading to liberation”. The traditions of tantra are vast, ranging from philosophical, cosmology, mudras, mantras, rituals, breathwork and asanas while others include the exploration of sexual energy. All of these paths are intended to bring us to greater truth, love and freedom.

Tantra invites us to peel away masks which hide us from experiencing our true nature. It is about embracing the fullness of life and meeting each moment with presence and intimacy - (in-to-me-I-see). It is about saying “yes” to all aspects of of life - the light, the shadow, the joy, the sorrow, body and spirit, masculine and feminine, in order to unify these energies within ourselves as a path of freedom.

~ WHAT WILL WE EXPLORE? ~
♡ a discussion about what tantra is (and what it is not)
♡ simple, (non-sexual) tools of tantra
♡ connection games and exercises that bring you into the present moment with a partner
♡ dyads: contemplation and communication with a partner
♡ embodiment practices: free movement, energy body activation
♡ presence: eye gazing and connection rituals

In this workshop which we will explore simple, yet profound (non-sexual) tools of tantra which invite us to have a direct experience of ourselves and explore a connection with others that go beyond labels and constructs in the ways we present ourselves to the world. There will be guided individual, partnered and group explorations that invite you to become fully present to what is alive.

~ CONSENT ~
You always have the freedom to choose what you want to explore and what you don’t. You are a sovereign being, and in this workshop, your “no” is just as welcome as your “yes”. Your presence is your participation.

~ LOGISTICS ~

Why am I always tired?

Pam Purnell

Date

Friday, May 31

Time

6:00 - 8:00pm


Details

Chronic tiredness is rampant in our society. Often times when we visit a GP to find an answer to the problem, blood work will be taken with no results. The second step is usually a trip to a holistic practitioner who blames adrenal burnout. But what if that STILL doesn't fix the problem? Then we are left frustrated and still exhausted.

Functional medicine coach Pam Purnell walks individuals through innovative functional medicine tests, the connection to Epstein Barr virus and fatigue and finally the mind/body connection and the importance of incorporating healing work into the physical healing journey.

The Why am I always tired workshop will begin with a 45 minute learning portion based on "Why Am I Always Tired", the number one search term on Google, followed by a restorative yoga class focused on breath and meditation.

Gentle Warrior Sacred Sound + Cacao Ceremony

Instructor [ s ]

Jont, Michelle & John Coleman

Date

May 25th

Time

7:30 - 10:30 PM


Details

The Gentle Warrior Sacred Song Ceremony is a magical, intimate and uplifting listening experience blending Jont's soul-stirring songs with John & Michelle’s devotional mantras - served up with stories, reflections, meditation journeys and a hearty dose of spontaneity.

A unique blend of Satsang and “conscious” house concert, this is a deep dive that invites connection, healing and celebration! 

The night unfolds as two or three sets of songs and sacred music, each drawing us more deeply into the beauty and mysteries of the heart. This is music that invites us to “feel” our way back to ourselves, helping us remember what it is to be whole again, and guiding us to that great Source of Love alive inside All. 

Gentle Warrior is medicine the world needs now. Rooted in love and healing, the songs are deeply personal, yet genuinely universal. 

***

“Gentle Warrior is an experience we create together. It is our sacred attention and presence that invites the particular songs and music to emerge, allowing the pure healing love to pass through. This is the essence of these ceremonies and what makes them a meditation rather than a typical live music experience.” ~ Jont 

“The power of Gentle Warrior lies in the invitation to fully experience the emotions and sensations that rise when we listen deeply together, when we are reminded of our divine nature, and when we are bathed in the healing vibrations of intentional music. These gatherings nourish hearts that are hungry for peace, compassion, love and truth.” ~ Michelle & John

CORE + PELVIC FLOOR

May 18 1 PM - 3 PM

This workshop is for women and men of any age who are interested in yoga techniques that can help improve function and utilize the full potential of our core and pelvic floor. We will spend a bit more time on postpartum education and common patterns that can exacerbate or create pelvic floor issues.

Ginger Garner said it so accurately when she said “A woman is (or should be) considered postpartum until her issues related to birth are resolved and well managed.”

Yoga is a system that integrates all facets of ones being. As such, it is an amazing system to utilize in the rehabilitation phases of one’s life and as an activity to promote general health and wellbeing.

If there is interest we will discuss how to safely get back into activity postpartum, and more specifically discuss what (if anything) we should do in the first 6-8 weeks, months, and even years postpartum.

This workshop is not for child bearing women alone, as we will also be discussing the 3 diaphragm approach to core stabilization and how it relates to our yoga practice.

The workshop will integrate core progressions and a mix of gentle practice and a little more advanced options for those who are ready for the challenge. This workshop will be accessible to ALL levels.

Those who attend the workshop will receive 10% off the Yoga Practice Manual “Yoga for the Stages of Pregnancy and Early Days of Recovery” by Adrianne Vangool.

For more details or information on what we will cover check out vangoolwellness on instagram or facebook for videos of sample poses and education or (vangoolwellness.com).

Get ready to face challenges head on, as we work together to achieve your health and movement goals. The aim is for you to leave the workshop feeling liberated to do the things you want to do!
