    Abundant Lotus: A Hip-Opening Journey and Mythology Workshop
    with Ellen Mosko

    We will practice a variety of hip-opening postures, utilizing both yin and yang styles, to encourage a release of tensions in both muscles and mind. One of the major hip-flexor muscles, the Psoas, is associated with our fight or flight response. Targeting this area to relax and soften will instead stimulate the rest and digest response. As the hips continue to soften we'll practice the actions for lotus or half lotus posture. Using the wall, props and your own awareness you'll be encouraged to work at your own pace to express the fullness of the pose in your unique style. Throughout the workshop, we’ll discuss one of the myths of Lakshmi whose beauty, wealth and abundant blessings are a gift to all.

    75 Minutes to Awakening with
    Johnny Scifo

    The healing traditions of Yoga, Buddhism, and Shamanism offer us practices to cultivate strength, love, and power, transforming us and our surroundings into Heaven on Earth. By properly managing energy, the awakened being sees all of life’s offerings and recognizes abundance available in each moment. Featuring pranayama, a gong bath, qi gong and asana, drumming meditation, and a sound bath savasana, this mixed modality practice will show you precisely where your energy is stuck and will provide the system shock necessary to realign your practice with true growth instead of chasing bliss. Find out what kind of seeker you are, and where to focus your energy next. The transformative nature of awakening comes through practice. Join us.

    Letting Go of the Physical (Because it Can’t Always Be a Tight Asana) with Vanessa Van Noy

    Our bodies change. Our practices transform. We age. We get injured. We learn. Yoga is so much more than a physical practice and yet our attention gets stuck on perfecting poses, Instagram envy style. Join Vanessa for what might be one of the most important classes you ever take - a yoga flow fully focused on shifting your headspace from the shock and awe of the asana to the inner work. This practice was designed for yogis of all levels. Expect adjustments, assists, and a whole new sense of awareness that will undoubtedly weave into your life, on the mat and off.

    Strength, Transformation, and Levitation Through the Art of Arm Balances
    with Jess Stickler

    Balancing on any part of the body other than the feat is a challenge of strength as well as faith and courage! We dare ourselves to trust our physical and mental strength when we approach these magical poses. Magic quite simply is transformation, magic occurs when we transform our self-understanding from the mundane to the infinite, when we transform something that previously seemed impossible into something that is possible. This workshop will offer practices to explore arm balances, and bring us closer to understanding some of these tricky asanas, as well as techniques and modifications for all experience levels.

    A Photographic Exploration of the Power of Yoga to Unite People Across Cultural and Physical Divides
    with Robert Sturman

    oin world-renowned artist/photographer, Robert Sturman, as he and his camera take us around the globe. This photographic exploration highlights the power of yoga to unite people across cultural and physical divides. Sturman’s work has given him the opportunity to make art with yogis in Kenya, Italy, Thailand, Israel, Cuba, to name but a few. From United States prisons to orphanages in Africa and the streets of Palestine, he has photographed all walks of life, embodying yoga poses with equanimity and grace. So many people, so many stories: breast cancer survivors, Maasai Warriors, Hasidic Jews, police officers, soldiers and inmates serving life sentences, each one a unique expression of humanity. "For me, making art is about much more than a pretty picture. My responsibility as an artist is to capture the intrinsic beauty and irreducible value of every subject, to awaken compassion and to use art to inspire humanity to move forward, reaching towards our greatest potential.” Robert will also be sharing a few secrets on how to make powerful, poetic images, celebrating the beautiful art of yoga. One of these secrets is already within your grasp, as many of his published works have been captured through the lens of his phone.

    A Panel Discussion with Lockey Maisonneuve, Stephanie Barrios-Cullins, Phyllicia Bonanno, and Alisha DeLorenzo
    – Inclusivity in the Practice of Yoga
    X

    We invite you to join us for a groundbreaking conversation about inclusivity and diversity in the yoga and wellness industries: where we are, who we are, where we've come from, and what we can do to open lines of communication and stand in solidarity with communities whose voices are inadequately heard and represented. “Yoga is a microcosm of what’s happening in the world,” says Grace Millsap, a Charlotte-based teacher and activist. “We are not exempt from these issues, and sometimes they become even more hush-hush, as the yoga community is supposed to be a safe space.” Our incredible panelists are advocated for more inclusion in the yoga and wellness industries. They live that mission everyday by showing up, speaking on it, and doing something about it. Come learn from them and engage in what might sometimes be uncomfortable, but ultimately is our greatest possible path towards wholeness, authenticity, and a true 8 limbed practice of yoga.
