OPEN SIT

FreeStyle Solitude 

Dates: 6/16, 6/23, & 6/30 (Saturdays) @ 7-8:15am

For three consecutive Saturdays in June the studio will be open for you to sit quietly. Sometimes all we need is permission and four walls to turn down the volume on the external bustle. Now you have a designated time and space to suss out your own story details.

How this works: Show up anytime between 7-8:15am on those given Saturdays. There will be no instruction and little to no talking (silence is golden). Use whatever props you'd like or not. Sit or lay down. Breathe. Leave anytime, you do not have to stay for the full hour and fifteen minutes. No cost, you pay with your time and what you get in return is a "spot-free shine."

WORKSHOPS

Sun & BONE

Dates: 6/29/2018 @ 12-2:30pm

The long time sun and toasty temperatures can be a place of discovery. When we commit to a practice, any form, we are able to suspend other areas of our lives, perhaps the areas that seem overwhelming or dark. You are invited to warm your bones and uncoil your brain in the fields of Northern Michigan. After we breathe and move, we will eat and rest; fresh Michigan produce will be our meditation. *Location will be given upon signing up. Cost: $45.00.

Trainings

Restorative Yoga & Deep Listening Training Weekend.

New Dates: September 7th, 8th, & 9th in Mt. Pleasant, MI

October 5th, 6th, & 7th at Yen Yoga & Fitness, Traverse City, MI

Restorative Yoga and Deep Listening is a weekend long program that draws upon subtle energy awareness and experience to bring each student into a layer of balance. Using asana, pranayama, meditation, visualization, ecology, and art the practitioner/student can construct individual recovery processes that speak directly to their needs. This training will encourage each student to guide and be guided in a restorative fashion. Throughout the weekend students will explore physical and energetic methods; using linguistics and presence to set the tone. Hands-on & hands-off adjustments, sequencing for affects, traditional & modern adaptations, lecture & discussion, and art & nature moments will be called into focus, giving the students a secure, but varied foundation to teach and/or deepen their personal practice.

This training is designed for new and experienced yoga instructors, as well as students who have a sincere interest in deepening their understanding behind the mechanics of restorative yoga. This training also lends itself to health care professionals (nurses/doctors), personal trainers, physical therapists, care-takers, body-workers, and/or counselors/coaches.

Recommended resources to further the learning experience 4). A teacher "tune-up" virtually or in person. 5). Three restorative classes on "Das Haus."

*This training is recognized by Yoga Alliance and is eligible for Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) - 20 contact hours + 12 non-contact hours = 32 hours in total.
