THE MAGIC OF DRAGONS
WESLEY, September 8, 5:00pm - 7:30pm
This all-levels, 2.5hr Immersion Workshop is a synergy of Hatha & Daoist yoga designed to awaken the flow of Life Force through a gentle, mesmerizing, moving meditation.
Daoist yoga can be defined as an expression of standing Yin yoga where the art of effortless power is discovered through calming, rhythmic flows combining breath with movement.
The Magic of Dragons is inspired by the teachings of Paul & Suzee Grilley & yin yoga sensei Bernie Clark. This ‘Dragon Fuego Flow’ is an exploration of Qi through various Daoist and Hatha dragon-inspired flows & stretches. Supported by mellow and uplifting backbeats, this is the perfect opportunity to experience the sparkle of Qi and give your mind, body and soul some much-deserved ZEN.
Workshop at a glance:
- Part 1 • Discussion - Discovering a deep connection to sensation through Qi Gong [Daoist Yoga]
- Part 2 • Feel the Force - A Big Qi Awakening - an exploration of various Qi-invigorating exercises that allow us to feel and sense the energy in the body.
- Part 3 • 75min Dragon Fuego Flow
STAR DUST GLOW FLOW
CAMERON, September 9, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
A patient & powerful exploration of a flow-based practice.
Every heavy element in your body - carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, etc. - had to have been forged in the belly of an exploding star...you are literally made of star dust! Within each of us is the remnant glow of a supernova, just waiting to be reignited. In this thoughtful and playful class led by Cameron, you will sweat and smile as you awaken your body’s stellar memory by slowing down the normally vigorous vinyasa practice. We will take our time to explore the universal principles of precise alignment, core activation, intentional breath linked with movement, and powerful concentration as a means to light the spark. And throughout the class (of course) Cameron will riff about space, time, galaxies, black holes, and all the magnificence that is the Universe! Join in the fun and let yourself shine! This class is open to all levels of practice: whether you're a seasoned practitioner or brand new to the wonderful world of yoga, get your toes to STAR DUST GLOW FLOW for a taste of the illuminated bliss that comes from slowing down!
WESLEY, September 9, 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Welcome to ‘Planet Mellow’. An all-levels, delicious, 75-min Yin Yoga adventure. Embark on this journey of ‘growing younger’ as we nourish our connective tissues, promote & restore the flow of Qi + calm the nervous system. We’ll weave in & out of juicy yin postures – exploring long held, static poses, as we cultivate deepened inhales and exhales and invite peace & calm into our yoga experience. This passive style of yoga is a beautiful compliment to your more yang style active practices (and lifestyles). Supported by soothing & tranquil back beats, this is the perfect opportunity to discover a deep ‘jello-like’ state of ‘HECK YES!’ that is often accompanied by uncontrollable ‘sighs & ahhhs.’
SWEET DREAMS * YIN YOGA & YOGA NIDRA
CAMERON, September 10, 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Melt into the bliss of vast inner-space in this mellow class that fuses the deep, delicious stretches of Yin Yoga, followed by a guided Yoga Nidra experience. A class all about making a connection with your own innate capacity to heal and to expand effortlessly into your true potential as embodied consciousness. Bring a blanket and a pillow and prepare to ZEN OUT!!
THE 80's *** CELEBRATING CREATIVITY, INDIVIDUALITY & NEON
WESLEY, September 10, 1:30pm - 3:00pm
This all-levels, 75min exploration is all about having FUN with deep inhales & big exhales celebrating the decade of AWESOME. A yoga adventure inspiring creativity, individuality, and authenticity on your mat as we awaken the GLOW…aka…BIG freaking Qi (Life Force). This ‘What a Feelin’ fusion flow is a one-of-a-kind blend of Yin-Hatha-Vinyasa-Kundalini along with a splash of Qi Gong, all backed by a ‘schweet’ playlist infusing yoga chill with 80's neon beats.
