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.
**INCLUDED IN OUR YIN LEVEL 2 TRAINING
Early bird price $80 if registered by August 15th

Yoga Nidra Training: Level 1
Dates TBA (this winter)
This training will give you the foundations of Yoga Nidra and the skills to write your own. Understanding the powerful affects that Yoga Nidra has on the brain, discovering your own voice, creating a signature Yoga Nidra script and learning how to be available to your students after a Yoga Nidra are all important aspects that will allow you to better serve. This is a powerful practice, and is best received when performed by someone who has the knowledge of yoga psychology and theory, rather than just reading from a book or offering only a body scan. Yoga Nidra is a journey through the Koshas that can allow for positive transformation of our consciousness. It can change the way that we think and act in this world. This training is open for people who are not Yoga Teachers and is continuing education for all Registered Yoga Teachers. Level 1 is a 15 hour training.
Space is extremely limited- email us to apply. VSAC grants are accepted.
