Yin Yoga: Hips and Spine w/ Cilla
Sunday, October 21th, 8:30-10:30am
Join Cilla for this 2 hour Yin Yoga class designed to target the hips and spine. Through mindful assessment, long holds and breathing techniques we aim to let go of tension in the body and begin to understand and harness the mind. We create gentle stresses through these postures to promote healing and rejuvenation of the connective tissues (bones, tendons, ligaments, and fascia). This practice is great if you're busy, physically active, have an active mind, work a lot, run a lot, experience chronic pain, are healing (physically or emotionally) or wish to have a deeper understanding of why we practice yoga. As always, Cilla adds Yoga Philosophy and guides introspection while we hold postures for longer and explore.
Part of a Yin training, limited space so please register in advance
Yin Yoga Training: Level 2
October 20 and 21
In Level 1 we were able to go over the Yin yoga history, tenants, postures, anatomy of connective tissue and some important energetic anatomy- which we will review. Level 2 allows us to dive deeper into the practice. We have Megan Godfrey teaching us about 5 Element and Meridian theory. Megan is a teacher and acupuncture practitioner with over 25 years of experience. She holds a Masters in Five element Acupuncture and Education as well as Human Ecology.
Cilla will spend more time with Yin sequencing, theming, pranayama practices, yoga psychology and philosophy so that you will feel comfortable finding the language to guide your students in the practice, as well as offer more elements of yoga to take your classes and student’s practice to the next level.
We will start the mornings off with Satsang and Mantra. Satsang translates into “ to associate with true people”. It is here where we can discuss yoga principals and philosophy that we can use in our lives but also offer to our students. We will discuss topics from the sacred texts of India and apply them to our modern way of living. After Satsang we will chant call and response Mantra. Mantra helps transcend the consciousness and can be a powerful meditation.
Saturday morning will have an element of Hatha yoga, to move the body and provide a balancing contrast to all the Yin activity. There will be time to structure Yin sequences and practice teach so you'll feel comfortable guiding others. You’ll leave with several Yin flows that you can offer to your students.

Mapping Yin Energy: a Five Element Perspective w/ Megan Godfrey
Saturday, October 20th, 1-5pm
A 4 hour workshop for yoga practitioners
The 5 Elements describe all life experience in the universe and how we are a microcosm of universal energy. Drawing on both Doaist and Buddhist five element traditions, we will look at Yin energy, or essential nature, Being.
The Daoist Five Elements tradition, from which Chinese meridians arises, maps yin energy in the body through meridians, or pathways of energy. The Tibetan Buddhist tradition reveals the inherit relationships between yin energy, emotion and wisdom. Together, they provide a map for working with the essence of life experience.
In the first 2 hours, we will build an understanding of yin energy from the ground up, including discussion of the 5 elements, 12 meridians, yin and yang, and heart and mind. In the second 2 hours, we will discuss the inherent relationships between yin and energy, mind, emotion and wisdom.
This is a class for all yoga practitioners and teachers, regardless of methodology. The material presented will orient practitioners to the 5 elements, the 12 meridians, and deepen your understanding of the nature and complexity of yin energy.
