Yoga Alliance Grounded by YogaMaha Yogini as Presented by Asha (CEU program 3o Hours) The asana that are so often associated with “yoga” were developed by men, for men. But in the western world, the majority of yogic practitioners are women. While the benefits of asana to the physical body are confirmed by modern science, a hyper focus on the physical aspects of yoga misses the point. It often leads to repetitive sequencing, rather than intuitive movement that responds to individuals actual beings.
This course is about tuning into the feminine essence within our form and cultivating an inner hearing and inner knowing. To move into union, into yoga, through communion with our cyclical body and mind, our heart and our powerful essence.
The different initiations which women go through (menarche, conception, pregnancy, birth, menopause) are covered, as each can be seen as a rite of passage into our own power. They are correlated to the yogic ashramas, stages of life.
Guest teacher Sandy Hicks, 500 E-RYT, will introduce the physical anatomy of the pelvic bowl and spine. This course also covers the energetic body, including the chakras, two of the major nadi’s (Ida and Pingola). The two major vayus (prana and apana) as well as the samana vayu are covered. The inner energetic landscape will be explored through asana, pranayama, pratyahara and dhrana. Use of the bandhas, especially the mulabandha, is emphasized. Dristi is also played with extensively.
We will spend the majority of our time together tuning into our bodies, and learning how to move intuitively according to what inner season our body is experiencing. Sometimes movement is very subtle, and stillness beckons. Other times, our inner landscape invites movement, movement, movement! We will also discuss how the external seasons can impact our practice.
This course is not about telling You what to do. It will offer tools to assist You in gaining confidence and trust in Yourself to know what to do.

Yoga Alliance Grounded by YogaAddiction, Recovery and Trauma Focus (CEU program 35 Hours) Yoga is a wonderful practice for people who are recovering from an addictions and traumas. Abusing alcohol and drugs always means that people lose touch with their bodies, minds and the connection to spirit. By practicing these techniques, they can once again become comfortable in their own skin.  The practice can help these individuals cope with life more easily, see with clarity and live in light. In 12 Step programs, they say that addiction is a threefold disease. It is viewed as mental, physical, and spiritual in nature. Yoga is a unique practice because it is able to benefit the individual in all these areas. All addictions are based on traumas and weave all three focuses into our learnings. See below and THIS PAGE for more information.  Contact the Director, Sandy at this email if you would like to be notified (alumni only).
