This time of the year as it is the time of Valentine’s Day, our mind easily circles around love and perhaps the lack of someone special in our life. We might find ourselves struggling with difficult emotions and unrealistic expectations from others. The truth is we are all in a relationship with ourselves first and foremost and during this workshop we will reaffirm this deep connection between you and your soul. We will satisfy our own need for love by anchoring into a Heart Chakra balancing practice; including mantra, yantra, kriya, asana and pranayama.
Join us as we celebrate the release of MetaAnatomy-Body Poetry with yummy vegan treats, art by Amanda Shafran, book signing and Q&A and a very special meditation. Books will be on sale at a special price throughout the evening. Come celebrate Body Poetry and enjoy a fun evening at ISHTA with Kristin! In Volume Two- Body Poetry we explore the maps and models of the Nadis, Chakras, Koshas and Vayus and take a closer look at the poetry of our breath, brain and heart. Each chapter also concludes with a meditation to help us reconnect to the embodied experience of our own physical and energetic anatomies.
This workshop is for those who have participated in our ISHTA YinYoga Level 1 (or Yin Immersion) with Ulrica, or for those who already teach Yin Yoga and hold a certificate from another school.
In this workshop, Ulrica will immerse you in varied healing and insightful ways that you can teach Yinyoga and also how you can step into a more individualized based teaching style of Yinyoga - in order to make a more specialized practice.
Combining your love of yoga with your creativity, this weekend is an opportunity to unlock your inner artist through art-inspired yoga classes, crystal healing sessions, photography workshops, and more. Make art with your body through asana and dance, and find space for your creativity to expand and flourish through coloring meditations and a sound bath experience.
If you are a writer and have a writer's block, if you always wanted to write but never got around it, if you like to journal, or if you are curious and want to see what you can write from your heart, come to this workshop!
In this workshop we will explore different ways of viewing the body beyond muscle and bone and discover immediately applicable and powerful techniques to address your body and the body of your students.
In this class, Sarah Platt-Finger will lead you through a sequence of sat kriyas (purification techniques), bandhas (locks of energy) and asana (physical postures) to help detoxify the physical and subtle body, while the soul-enhancing sounds of Aya and Tyler facilitate this shift on all levels.
Join Wendy and Alan for the second module of a four-part training that will take you on a multi-faceted journey to (re)discover the essence of yoga as ancient wisdom and personal transformation.
Join us for an evening with a Guru of North Indian classical music - Pandit Sanjoy Bannerjee - to discuss the connections between yoga, pranayama and this music that has never been written down and is always improvised. We will screen the film Raga Revelry which explores the spiritual basis of this music and the reverence and revelry that are the heart of Indian culture.
The most powerful, transformative workshop you'll take this year!! Ok, maybe that's a bit of an oversell but this is one wildly connected muscle! From Chinese medicine to Ayurveda, Biomechanics to Yoga Therapy this powerhouse of a muscle is the seat of much promise and poetry.
