Doorways to the Self: A Luminary School Yoga and Meditation Training w/ Elena Brower & Ally Bogard

October 15th-20th, 2017 at OMEGA INSTITUTE

Registration & information here

Elena Brower and I invite you to our first formal training module offered via our Luminary School.

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.

In this training with master teachers Ally Bogard and Elena Brower—who emphasize practical and accessible approaches to living your yoga—you uncover and stimulate the release of radiant energy in order to refine your voice, cultivate physical and emotional consistency, and amplify meaning in your life.

Through asana and breath practice, 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 training is designed for teachers, prospective teachers, and serious students of any level of yoga and meditation who wish to create a doorway to the self that is connected, knowing, and whole.

Teacher's Immersion & Live-in w/ Ally Bogard
November 25th-December 2nd, 2017 Wainscott, Long Island NY

In one of the most beautiful places to be as the winter settles in, the Hamptons, 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.
