Talia Sutra- Love and all is coming

Love and All is Coming with Talia Sutra

Love is the desire to connect: a process rather than an end goal.  

In the process of love, we can become silent enough to listen to a more subtle sound or to witness the ordinary as the magical. 

In this 3 hour long class/workshop you will flow seamlessly through postures, learning correct breathing, technique and form in the asanas, with a focus on your backward bending, heart opening and inverted asanas. 

Strengthen and heal your total spine. Recharge your practice and discover life-changing tools through clear instruction and demonstrations of proper execution.

Collective Refashioning: FEMAIL + WYC workshop

Forging a new view on body, wardrobe, and practice

Sunday June 25th

2-5PM

$35

The world is desperate to tell you that your body must meet an established set of criteria which are impossible to obtain. Thank goodness the world is wrong! The truth is here: your body is a temple and worthy of respect without caveat or condition. And yet we hold onto negative ideas about our bodies which often reflect in the clothes we wear as we attempt to hide "problem areas". 

Take a look in your closet. You'll probably see clothing that falls into a variety of categories: staples (the things we wear all the time), armor (the things we wear to hide our bodies), nostalgia (the things with memories that we love), and refuse (the things we keep for no good reason). Under these same categories we can divide up the perspective many of us have of our bodies: staples (the bones, the structure), armor (the muscles, the skin), nostalgia (the the features we like about ourselves), and refuse (the features we despise about ourselves). In both body and wardrobe, can we bring these various categories into harmony, so that we can more holistically love and accept ourselves, and dress our bodies not out of defense and deflection but confidence and adoration?

 

At this workshop we will use yoga and clothing reconstruction to work towards embracing ourselves and our wardrobes more fully.  Please bring in clothing you hate, ignore, have worn forever, or clothing you use to hide yourself in plain sight. We will begin the workshop discussing as a community what we think and feel about the garments we've brought. We will then spend time in yoga meditating on the expansion of our creativity and self acceptance. Then we will take apart, combine, and reconstruct our garments to create new items to better represent our true, complex, and beautiful selves.

FEMAIL is Camilla Carper and Janelle Abbott: a collaborative art duo who make clothing and collage by sending work back and forth from San Fransisco to Seattle via the USPS

$35

Learn tools, techniques, and foundations for Thai massage, a tradition that works with subtle energy lines, pressure points and stretching to promote relaxation, health and well-being!

ABOUT SAMANTHA

The body is the mirror of the self, the mind its reflection; yoga is a practice through which the Self is uncovered. 

A yogi, foodie, activist and sometimes philosopher and poet, I've practiced asana for eight years and taught for seven. Born in Indonesia to a Batak Mom and Italian-American Dad, and calling Jakarta, Bangkok, New York and Los Angeles home, I'm a product of my environment, equal parts traditional and radical. I have a deep interest in Eastern metaphysics, psychospirituality and traditional healing modalities. I completed my MA in Yoga Studies last May at Loyola Marymount University, a two year program that sparked my deep love and appreciation for yoga philosophy and spirituality. Whether I'm sharing the discipline of asana or the study of yoga texts, I hope to empower yoga practitioners, enthusiasts and tourists alike to engage yoga first as a practice of compassionate awareness. I share the principles and techniques of yoga I've found to be effective for finding balance and ease in the body, awareness and equanimity in the mind, as well as appreciation, joy and gratitude for self, others and the world. I strive to create a safe and positive space for all to cultivate their intuition and a personal experience and expression of yoga. 

Trainings include:

200hr Power Vinyasa Certification (Yoga to the People, 2010)

200hr Vinyasa Krama Certification (Srivatsa Ramaswami, 2015)

Trauma Informed Yoga and Mindfulness Certification (Prison Yoga Project, 2015)

Sound Bath Meditation

Sound Bath Meditation

Join us for this unique experience FRIDAY APRIL 21st.

$25

Sound Bath

Drop into meditation, release energy that isn't serving you, and bring yourself closer to the balance you desire.

A “sound bath” is an immersive experience of sound and vibration. Participants lie on the floor (savasana) and experience the restorative effects of being “bathed” by the resonance of crystal singing bowls, gong, and vocal toning.  The sounds interact with the brain and body: entraining the brain into a “meditative state” (Theta), while moving energy through the body, effectively promoting rejuvenation and healing from within.

 

What is a Sound Bath?

A sound bath is an immersive experience of sound and vibration, created by various instruments. The term "sound bath" is used because you are bathed in the vibration of sound.

How do I participate? What is the experience?

Becky will use quartz crystal bowls, gong, and vocal toning to create an improvised concert of highly resonant sounds. The sounds interact with your brain and your body: entraining your brain into a “meditative state” (Theta) and moving energy in the body, effectively promoting rejuvenation and healing from within. 

Participants lie (in savasana) or sit comfortably on the floor, while taking in the sounds and experiencing their restorative effects. 

What to bring/wear

- Bring: yoga mat / extra comfort (pillow, blanket, eye cover, bolster, back jack, etc.)
- Wear: warm and comfortable clothing

 The limitless power of the mind with Rigdzen Tingkhye

The limitless power of the mind with Rigdzen Tingkhye

Drop into the Discussion for $20

Join us for a deep discussion on the limitless power of the mind and how we can harness it to better our own lives as well as the lives of those around us with Rigdzen Tingkhye.

Rigdzin Tingkhye was born in Tibet in 1957, two years before his family followed His Holiness the Dalai Lama into exile in India.  There, along with other first generation Tibetan refugees, they supported his efforts in preserving Tibetan heritage and building a thriving community in exile.  Rigdzin spent his formative years studying under a faculty body comprised of some of the leading scholars of old Tibet.  The blessing of receiving teachings in Tibetan history, culture, language and philosophy from these eminent masters has been one of the great joys of his life.

Living in the United States over the past twenty-five years, Rigdzin has sustained his passion for philosophy and everyday loving-kindness through his work as a language teacher, private chef, business owner, and interpreter for distinguished lamas, astrologers and political activists. 

A loving family man, Rigdzin is known and appreciated as an accessible contemporary teacher whose exceptional wit brings clarity and delight to his commentaries.  He follows in the path of his ancestors, yogis of Ganden Tse and Tashi Chopel monasteries (est. 1384) in Tingkhye, Tibet.

(Tingkhye is pronounced ting-kay and translates into "deep birth.")

Discover the ease that underlies transformation.

Ultimately creating groundwork of developmental repatterning to promote clarity in body and mind.

Bio:
Chandra Lovejoy has been teaching yoga since 2010 and is passionate about a practice of Self inquiry and growth. This workshop is based on her study with Amy Matthews and Body-Mind Centering® “an integrated and embodied approach to movement, the body and consciousness. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, it is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical  and developmental principles, utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind. The study of Body-Mind Centering® is a creative process in which embodiment of the material is explored in the context of self-discovery and openness.”

HOT TEACHER TRAINING!

HOT TEACHER TRAINING IS APPROACHING!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS. 

4 WEEKEND INTENSIVE TRAINING SATURDAY and SUNDAYs

SEPTEMBER 16TH-OCTOBER 9TH

LEARN THE MECHANICS OF THE HOT PRACTICE

Already know how to teach, having trained to teach vinyasa, power, Baptiste, Yin, but you're hungry for more? You see bodies, know how to speak to bodies, inspire alignment and breath, but you want to take all of that knowledge and apply it in a new way, to a new process and new community of practitioners? We have an ADDENDUM FOR YOU! The Co.'s Hot Hatha Addendum is designed for teachers with 200 hour vinyasa, or the equivalent experience, who want to expand their repertoire to include the teaching of the traditional 26/2 Hot Hatha class.  In addition to exploring the anatomy and alignment of the basic 26, We Yoga Co.'s Hot addendum will include the six additional postures that are part of our own We Yoga series Hot Hatha class. 


In these four weekends we will also discuss the way heat impacts the body and benefits the practice; how to dialogue in a way that helps your students stay present while sweating; and explore the ways in which this practice enhances an established yoga practice and asks for new awareness from both teachers and practitioners.
Earn YA ongoing education credit, explore something new and invigorate your teaching, join us for the We Yoga Hot Hatha Addendum.


* It is HIGHLY recommended that all addendum participants participate in the EMMY CLEAVES weekend SEPT 10-11.  As one of the most respected hot hatha teachers in the world, Emmy's workshop will get you ready to dive into the teaching of the hot hatha series--and all proceeds benefit the Nature Conservancy!
