Ocean & Shore: Molokai 2019

YOGA & MEDITATION RETREAT

with Denise Benitez and Karen Sprute-Francovich

Yoga, meditation, nourishing meals, private grounds, stunning sunsets, community, exploring, and so much more — all while enjoying the profound beauty and deep relaxation that only Mother Molokai can offer.

Our current culture is filled with yang (active, masculine, striving) and does not tend to value round, moist, deep reserves and sustenance such as those that are found in Hawaii, and especially on Mother Molokai. Spend a week practicing and adoring the things that are often neglected in our culture. Instead of sharp, bright, fast, surface, we will bring to life those energies that are soft and low, slow and deep; the energies that heal and promote what yogis call soma, ease of being. This week will be an antidote to all the noise and speed of the over-culture and a time to rest deeply and replenish your inner stores of wellness and optimism.

Somatic Experiencing® and Yoga: Tending Trauma and Chronic Stress Through the Wisdom of the Nervous System

Somatic Experiencing® and Yoga: Tending Trauma and Chronic Stress Through the Wisdom of the Nervous System

TEACHER TRAINING

with Rainey

Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a potent psychobiological method for resolving trauma symptoms and relieving chronic stress. It can reset the nervous system, restore inner balance, enhance resilience to stress and increase people’s vitality, equanimity and capacity to actively engage in life. It is the result of the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine. Yoga is the powerful art and science of bringing the body, mind and heart into the present moment. It offers varying tools for being present and integrating the layers of our being into a united and functional whole. But when the nervous system is stuck in the past due to trauma and chronic stress that is unresolved, then these tools don’t always work well.

Motion, Health, & Hormones: Optimizing Home Yoga and Walking Programs

Motion, Health, & Hormones: Optimizing Home Yoga and Walking Programs

WORKSHOP

with special guest Steve Thompson

Vitality is associated with movement. As we “age,” we experience accumulating losses of small amounts of motion, particularly at the hips, ribs, and shoulders, due to injuries and less than optimal posture. Full-range leg and arm movements are essential for driving and balancing fluids and hormones and sustaining organ health. As our movement becomes restricted, we become more susceptible to gaining weight, losing energy, and contracting diseases.
