During this retreat, we’ll explore the full range of asana together, moving through the sequences in a supportive, fun way as a community.

-
Pricing: $595 for shared accommodations (2 people per room, shared bath in hall). Single rooms, private baths available for an extra fee as space permits; ask early for availability!

Barefoot Bootcamp

Yogahour Barefoot Bootcamp

Saturday, October 12, 12-3pm
Sunday, October 13, 12:30-3:30pm

2 days, 6 hours, 365 yoga poses

Want to take your yoga practice to a whole new level? Challenge yourself in the best possible way? Then this is the workshop for you. Over the course of two days, we will practice all 365 poses in the Yogahour syllabus. The Yogahour syllabus consists entirely of poses within the realm of doable to difficult, but not extreme. Each three-hour practice session will include half of the poses in the syllabus sequenced in an intelligent way to make you feel as strong as you are flexible and as flexible as you are strong. Barefoot Bootcamp is a dharma-difficult yet doable challenge that is sure to make an imprint. Come for either one or both sessions. Are you in?

Yogahour is an accessible, affordable, expertly taught flow class that offers clear and specific alignment instructions for the fit beginner. Yogahour aims to be the most doable yet difficult flow class offered anywhere. Many yoga classes are more doable, many more difficult; but none are as doable and difficult as yogahour (that is the aim anyway). Yogahour also aims to supply maximum flow and maximum form per pose.

$35/session or $60 for both after 10/5

The Great Goddess as Beauty, Fury, and Refinement: Stories about Worlds of Love and Sorrow
Oct 18, 2019 - Oct 20, 2019
 
The most ancient stories that identify the forms of India’s great goddesses create a juxtaposition worthy of her rich, complex character. She is, at once, the form of love that nurtures, supports, and sustains the fragile and insistent needs of those for whom she cares—as mother, partner, sister, friend, wise woman—and she is the furious and sometimes violent implementations of justice and balancing of scales. We see her both gentle and furious but in every case defining further her own nuanced identity, revealing more of what is possible and important about living in a complex world. We will look closely at a number of rich stories of the great goddess, several of which are far off the beaten path, and consider how her beauty, fury, and refinement manifest in our own experience and through our everyday lives. Join us! No previous experience is expected or required- just an open mind and a willing heart.

Full weekend attendance strongly recommended.

Balls and the Wall
Dec 1, 2019 - Dec 1, 2019
 
Experience your favorite poses more three-dimensionally, using the wall to support and challenge our understanding of some of our favorite (and more challenging) poses. We will intermittently employ tennis balls to shine our attention to areas of ourselves we often overlook and melt away the tension that tends to hide out in our bodies.

That increased awareness and openness will shed light on the refined movements that are the key to both basic poses and poses that challenge our balance. We will explore these re-discovered regions with subtle movements to reach thrilling new places in our practice and to learn a bit more about ourselves - as practitioners - and as people off the mat.


Bring: your goal pose questions and curiosities!
