Bhakti Flow Yoga with Erick Herlong

December 14, 2019 

Bhakti flow combines aspects of love, compassion and healing with the grace of vinyasa flow yoga. This workshop will not only stretch your body and your breath but will also stretch your heart by inviting you to move beyond the physical aspects of the practice and experience the asanas on an emotional level. The workshop will begin with a short talk, which will introduce Bhakti yoga along with a theme. This theme will be woven throughout the workshop. We will then have a 90-minute asana practice with specially selected music which will enhance the theme and energy of the class. We will incorporate universal mantras through Kirtan (singing together) – at the close of the class.

This workshop will challenge you to let go of anything in your life that feels stagnant, it will empower you to create the life you desire by asking you to embrace the truth of who you are. The workshop will seek to provide a space for you to explore your yoga practice on a deeper more personal level in an effort to encourage you to live your life to its highest potential.

time: 2-4pm

cost: $24 ($20 Inspired Path Members)


Winter Yin with Matt

December 21, 2019 

On the shortest day of the year, you can feel your energy begin to wane. Daylight fades and the desire to hibernate grows. Unfortunately, this is a busy time of year for many of us- pulled by all sorts of obligations and events. The kidneys are responsible for our overall health and vitality. When the kidney energy is flowing with ease we can operate with openness and gentleness, listening to our intrinsic wisdom even through the busy holiday season.

Practicing yin yoga is coming into a simplet shape in a mindful way while staying for many minutes in order to go deeper within the natural ranges of motion in the joints.  Yin practice targets the connective tissue in the body, which wraps around and through each muscle and joint. When doing long held poses, we load the connective tissue & ligaments with gentle pressure and pulling. This relieves the body physically as well as energetically.  Loading the connective tissues can alleviate physical pain due to the body’s rescue response, which lubricates joints and provides a healthier flow of energy throughout the body. The other benefit of yin yoga is that is offers students a quiet practice in which you can begin to train the mind and use meditative practices to become fully present.

Class will be suitable for all levels.

time: 2-4pm

cost: $24 ($20 for Inspired Path members)

Each weekend we will study one of the Five Causes as taught by Max Strom: gratitude, forgiveness, honesty, kindness, and humility. During the last weekend, you will create a personal code of conduct in order to live your Yoga each day. Weekends will include both a 1 hour 30 minute practice and 2 hour book talk and discussion.

This is also Segment 1 of our year-long teacher training program. If you are interested in an in-depth study of Yoga, please read below and attend all three segments to receive your registry with Yoga Alliance. We are a dedicated teaching school and aim to graduate leaders in the field of yoga and living an inspired life.

Through this course, you will discover if you are meant to lead through teaching yoga. Our teacher training is open to anyone interested in becoming a teacher. There is NO application process. It is your effort and dedication in Segment 1 that allows us to see if you are ready to move into Segment 2.

Dates for Segment 2 will be worked out during segment one with everyone’s schedules in mind.
