    – Abundant Lotus: A Hip-Opening Journey and Mythology Workshop

    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.

    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.

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.

    – A Photographic Exploration of the Power of Yoga to Unite People Across Cultural and Physical Divides

    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.
