Yoga Therapy: The Gift of Healing

November 30, 2017
Shanti Kelley
When I first decided to enter the Yoga Therapy program at Yoga Yoga, I actually didn’t even know what Yoga Therapy was.  All I knew was that I wanted to help people in a different way, deepen my practice, understanding and skill. I also knew that after 20 years of teaching, two 500hr specialized Teacher Trainings and a successful public class offering I was ready to take the next step Professionally. Whatever you think Yoga Therapy is, it isn’t. In a funny way, that’s the magic of yoga. There are elements that are body and structure ...

Yoga & Animals

The sound of wolves howling together–long, haunting, and beautifully primal–can bring me to tears and stop me in my tracks like no other. The same goes for the roar of a tiger. Heard up close, it’s enough to make my entire body vibrate and feel humbled. When I tell people that I used to spend my days cleaning up after hippos, preparing diets for black bears and porcupines, and grabbing my zip ties to fix just about anything, they always seem a little surprised and quite curious. My path to yoga has been a winding and unique one. Yoga and ...

Some of us are natural born caregivers, nurturers and supporters Our capacity to feel and respond to the suffering of others is a much needed gift in the world.

In this transformative weekend Angie and Jenn will guide you to learn to use your gift of compassion and empathy consciously, without ...

Yoga for Grief and Healing

November 14, 2017
Kimberly Wharton
Grief can be defined as our reaction to a loss, whether it be life, heart-break, empty-nest, or any unexpected life change. If you watch television or listen to the news, you know the images and events that we have seen all too often, are now part of our daily tapestry. We sometimes store these events away in our physical or energetic body, run from them, avoid them completely, or numb them away. I believe the only way to get to the other side, is thru. I do not believe there is any one correct way to grieve, but I do know the effects of ...

The Path and the Practice of Meditation

November 03, 2017
Sheila Singh
What is meditation? Depending on who you ask the answer can be quite varied. There are so many different lineages and many methods of practice. Yet, these manys ways ultimately lead us in the same direction- back to the simplicity of Being in our direct experience. This state of Being provides a sweet contrast to a life that is filled with constant doing. In my exploration, meditation has offered me a kind way to meet myself, others and life. In the depths of my practice I have felt my own messy humanity and tasted the essence of a nature ...

Lynn Chang
“So what do you want to be when you grow up?” Back in grade school it would have been so helpful to learn how to answer this question. There are actually 500,000+ career options out there!

If you’ve ‘fallen into’ your current career path and are wondering what else is out there, or have been wanting to make a change but not sure to what, or will be retiring soon and looking for something more fulfilling, this workshop is for you! The first step is to ...
