Teen Yoga, Aerial and Flow Arts with Melissa Mann
These sessions are designed especially for teens to assist in achieving deeper confidence and self assurance by empowering teens through Aerial Yoga, Flow arts, meditation, discussion and building creativity with a creative project each session.
Through each class it is our hope to assist teens through an inner journey as they discover the essence of themselves, and provide the self-assurance and confidence they need as they venture out into the world. It is important to start with a strong and stable foundation to build from. We will work together to create a beautifully conscious mind, body and spirit.
Classes alternate between Aerial Yoga (limited to 8 students) and Flow Arts or other artistic yoga expressions (no student limit).

Special Weekend Workshops
Saturday and Sunday, April 14-15th, 8:30AM-5:30PM
Principles of Ayurveda with Kerry Harling
Traditionally Yoga and Ayurveda went hand in hand. One was not understood or taught without the other. Ayurveda, or the ‘Science of Life’ is the ancient yogic medicine that acknowledges individual differences, imbalances and treatments. For the Yoga teacher, an understanding of Ayurveda is part of a complete yoga practice, and integral to offering a comprehensive class experience for students.
This Module will include:
· Basic principles of Ayurvedic medical theory and philosophy.
· Understanding the fundamental terms that describe the most useful and practical aspects of this vast ancient wisdom including vata, pitta, kapha, agni, ama and guna.
· Self-assessment and dosha determination.
· Learn which Ayurvedic practices are most practical and appropriate for you.
· Structure a dinacharya (daily routine).
· How to do a daily abhyanga (self-massage using warm oil).
· How to do a seasonal cleanse of the digestive tract to bring balance to the physical and emotional body.
· Yoga & Pranyama for specific doshas.
· Time for general Q & A.
You will leave this Module with an understanding of your current constitution – meaning whether you need to manage vata, pitta, or kapha as part of bringing yourself back to balanced health.
Saturday and Sunday, June 16-17th, 8:30AM - 5:30PM
Yoga of communication with Christine Keisinger
Students will learn specific ways to improve their communication skills while teaching, and will learn to bring their ‘yogic communication’ off the mat. Dr. Christine Kiesinger brings her extensive knowledge of yoga, communication and relationships to this exciting workshop.
Saturday and Sunday, August 18-19th, 8:30AM - 5:30PM
Meditation and Visualization with Magali Diskus
Understanding the Mind-Body-Spirit connection through Meditation. Looking at Meditation as a tool and a destination. After exploring the mind, its role, processes and purposes, we explore the way it connects the spirit to the body at the energetic level. We present our definition of the meditative state and explain how it creates cohesion between the Mind, Body and Spirit, and also illustrates the meaningful interdependence of these essential instances.
In this workshop we explore the ideal circumstances for the most effective meditation practices. Meditation is a destination in itself with a full relevance to the greater purpose of human life on earth, facilitating ascension and conscious meditation allowing to go deeper into the physical practice and act as a bridge to the spirit and the inner self, introducing here the idea of transcendence in perfecting a deep conscious yoga practice. Each section ends with a themed guided meditation. Sharing and journaling will be encouraged.
