Mythical Vinyasa Master Class
Join Kelly for a spirited journey through Hindu myths, as well as the mantras, mudras and poses that go with them. Myths are like prisms, reflecting us back to ourselves and providing meaningful clues to help us through challenging moments in our lives. Coupled with creative vinyasa flow, the stories truly come to life with YOU as the main character! Krishna, Lakshmi, Kali, Shiva, Ganesha… any one of them (or more than one) might make an appearance as we flow through creative vinyasa sequences designed to unleash your inner deity! For all levels, this workshop includes storytelling, chanting, mudra (yoga for your hands), meditation and lots of inspired movement on the mat for all levels.
Saturday morning $40
When the going gets tough, the tough turn upside down! Join us for a lighthearted exploration of inversions, with step by step instructions that will demystify shapes that before might have seemed impossible. There’s a good chance that you’ll surprise yourself and do something that you never imagined you could do! You don’t need to be a yoga master or a handstand expert to participate, all levels are welcome. Just bring an open mind and a willingness to explore some funky upside down poses. We’ll play with handstands, forearm stands, and 7 different variations of headstand, working on tons of little tips and tricks to get you flying!
Saturday Afternoon $40
Power To The She! Which Goddess Are YOU?
For women AND men! Are you an otherworldly Saraswati type, with more interest in spiritual pursuits than a conventional life? Or maybe you’re a Radha, the goddess whose superpower is her ability to love so fiercely that everything she sees becomes love. Then there’s Lakshmi, the one who delights in adornment and the luxury of the material world, and who quietly folds herself back into the cosmos when she is not appreciated. Come hear the stories of these Goddesses and so many more! Storytelling and group discussion with some chanting and guaranteed laughter! No asana. If you like the stories behind the yoga poses, you will love this class!
Sunday Morning (mother’s day!) $40
How do we stay open hearted and committed to our spiritual path in the difficult moments? The great Bhakti poet Mirabai gives us a hint when she says, “The heat of midnight tears will bring you to God.” Infused with Bhakti poetry, Rumi’s wisdom and Krishna lore, this lighthearted vinyasa class will open you up in more ways than one! There will be some of Kelly’s signature storytelling, a little chanting, a lot of heart opening shapes, and some deeply satisfying long held hip openers to top it all off. For students of all levels. All you need to bring is an open mind and a willingness to try shapes that you may have only seen in books! If we approach the poses step by step, the impossible becomes possible!
ENTIRE WORKSHOP WEEKEND PRICE : $140
