Spirit Speak: Finding Your Unique Voice as a Teacher Instructor: Seane Corn
This teacher training intensive will go deeper into the process of teaching, exploring the subtle physical and spiritual energies involved in finding one’s own unique self expression, and facilitating transformational journey work for our students. This is about cultivating your personal strengths as a teacher, developing a strong and confident voice, and learning how to turn a simple class into a soul-inspiring experience. Many teachers are taught the mechanics of teaching: alignment, sequencing, asanas, pranayama, meditation, the facts and rich history of yoga, yet are left yearning for a way to bring their students into a place of deep surrender, prayer, and intentional energetic shifts. "Holding space" for transformation requires a deep commitment to the inner journey of spirit, compassion, courage, and a willingness to articulate of the complexities of the human experience and the beauty of the souls journey within. With Seane’s guidance, we’ll explore how to invite "God" into the body/mind experience, incorporate ritual, and how to speak from your heart as a way to inspire, inform, and motivate the class. Learn when is the appropriate time to communicate, the mechanics of structuring a class (both practically and metaphysically), and the power, and challenges, of introducing prayer. This intensive will ultimately shed light on just how powerful and inspirational YOU can be and offer tools on how to share your unique self-expression with your students.

+ Accountability, Trauma, and Social Justice On and Off the Mat
Accountability, Trauma, and Social Justice On and Off the Mat Instructor: Seane Corn
Explore what it means to be an advocate for social change from the inside out and how to enable a community that is inclusive and accessible to all. Yoga is a practice of making the unconscious conscious, of investigating the lost, disconnected, stuck, and defended parts of us. It is a practice of compassion. Because stress and trauma live in the body, the yoga practice is a perfect opportunity to confront and change some of the patterns that keep us stuck and suffering. When we change on an individual level, we are changing the collective level. If you're interested in seeing the world become a better place, curious about how to contribute, or overwhelmed by the state of the world, join us for a practice that will shed some light, offer guidance, and ultimately inspire you to be the change you wish to see.

Yoga for Every Body Instructor: Seane Corn
No two bodies on earth are alike, yet we sometimes get the message that yoga is only for certain bodies. Come explore yoga as the art form and tool it truly is, from all levels and angles. In a supportive, noncompetitive environment, learn the foundation of a solid practice through alignment, core awareness, and breathing techniques, including the basic principles of Sun Salutations A and B and how this is the cornerstone of every vinyasa practice. We'll also discuss the preparation, inner queues, and dissection of the fundamentals of standing poses, backbends, twists, and inversions. Through patience, compassion, and awareness, yoga truly comes from the inside out.

Detoxing Through the Energy Centers: Cleansing Body, Mind, and Spirit Instructor: Seane Corn
Each day we are exposed to both environmental and internal toxins that affect our energy, health, vitality, mood, and emotions. These toxins can turn into ailments, diseases, depression, anxiety, weight gain, and high blood pressure if untreated. We'll move through specific detoxifying yoga sequences, emphasizing the chakra energy systems and how to bring them back into balance. Using the chakra system correctly, we can identity, reconcile, and heal restrictive emotional patterns and physical imbalances in our mind and body. We'll use the tools of asana, meditation, reflection, intention, and prayer to facilitate this inquiry and empower our health and life.

Three Realms of Consciousness Instructor: Seane Corn
Come explore the Three Realms of Consciousness--the physical/mental, the energetic/emotional, and the psychic/symbolic.

Through the practice of vinyasa flow yoga, we'll go on a ritualistic journey initiating the mystical into to the practical, bonding body, mind, and Spirit. Through the integration of asana, proper breathing techniques, and conscious intention, learn how to experience the creative and powerful practice of vinyasa flow as a devotional expression of life--beyond the body.
