This weekend of Integration will weave together the energies of Rajas, Tamas, and Sattva, i.e., 3 foundational components to the Wireless Anatomy as given by Dr. Randolph Stone. We will take a step back to explore again each of the gunas unique qualities and how we understand them now.

This exploration becomes incredibly beneficial by seeing into all that we have had to process in a profoundly chaotic life atmosphere. Watching and standing by our families, friends, students, clients, and all beings…..none of whom are exempt from the chaos, upset and confusion.

What is the worth of our work if not to utilize with as much skill and compassion towards everyone and everything, everywhere?

The mystery of yoga, 1000’s of years old, is the profound truth that knows no time, only knows your spine! The vertebrae must be decompressed routinely, the heart must know love, the mind must direct and allow energy to flow. Energy therapies are the leading edge because they get to the core.

Teaching yoga is so incredible because we empower others to grow and direct their own energy for health building and spiritual unfoldment. By the way, this is the hardest job you will ever have,

Included in our weekend:

  1. Deep dive into the qualities of the elements ether, air, fire, water & air in relation to the Guna
  2. Application of these energies to poses/asanas
  3. Accessing these energies through meditation on the chakras
  4. Applying the lines of force to assist release of the spine, back, hips, shoulders, neck and knees.

This class is a really good opportunity to gain more insight into your own and/or your student’s process. Here are some issues that often arise.

Anything familiar?

  1. Where does fear of a pose show up?
  2. Why does this pose scare me?
  3. How can I feel safer in my practice?
  4. Can I move through all this scar tissue from an injury?
  5. Nothing I do makes a difference ……….

Understanding energy principles, utilizing energy principles, and appreciating energy principles truly is a process of exploring, absorbing, and experimenting. Energy really is the key component to our health and well being. Applying these principles to yoga makes practice so very interesting and mystical.

Most wonderful in this weekend will be what we co-create together from your yoga and meditation experience.

Recent Testimonial

“My Empower Workshop experience was very different from what I thought it would be. By dissecting a pose, slowly and deliberately getting into it allows you to become aware of the muscles that you use, make adjustments necessary to improve your position, isolate the appropriate muscles and gain a whole new level of body awareness. Then, by holding the pose, your physical comfort improves and allows you to grow the pose far beyond what can be accomplished in a regular yoga class. In addition to all this, when you release the pose you have a greater cognitive and physical reaction to what the pose accomplished. You come away from this workshop feeling physically fabulous, mentally relaxed, with a greater understanding of your body and a jump start on growing
your regular yoga class experience.” ~Susan H, Atlanta
