Doorways to the Self with Ally Bogard & Elena Brower

Training July 8th-13th @ Kripalu

Retreat August 12th-18th in Italy

The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés

When you practice yoga and meditation with intention and a certain quality of heart, you come into right relationship with your essential self. You shift from physical, mental, and emotional patterns of distortion and dissonance to resonance and connection.

On this Luminary School retreat with Ally and Elena, you’ll engage practical and accessible approaches to living your yoga. You’ll reveal your innate radiant energ in orde t refine your voice, cultivate physical and emotional consistency, and amplify meaning in your life and your practice. 

Through asana and pranayama, self-reflection, subtle body alignment, meditation, and group discussions on acceptance, presence, and allowing, you expose and clear expressions of dense emotions and focus your energy in a love-based approach to life that offers greater clarity of mind.

This retreat is open to students with some proficiency in yoga, but classes will be all-levels. 


Teacher's Immersion & Live-in w/ Ally Bogard

November 2018 Location TBD

For the second year in a row, we will gather for a week of asana, breath, meditation, contemplation, self-inquiry, dreaming and prayer.  Having run teacher training programs for over 10 years, this week will be an intimate gathering of teachers to immerse in the technical, the emotional and the metaphysical wonders of embodiment. We will shape this course together through what you want to learn as a practitioner and as a teacher. Embodiment practices, philosophy, teaching methodology, group processing, and invoking the sacred will all be presented. We will be fed a conscious, vibrant, low-inflammatory, super-food menu all week to be able to move towards the darkest time of the year with inner radiance.

We are ready to be like the old ones from the dreams we recall.

Please contact me directly with any questions as to the content of the training.
