The Five Vajras of Tibetan Yoga with Lama Norbu

Register under Workshops for these two events:

Tibetan yoga is an ancient and powerful purification practice which takes one beyond limitations and beliefs, helping to break through perceived barriers with deep love and compassion. Employing yantra, mudra, and mantra, you will be guided to balance the five elements of your body – fire, earth, water, wind, and space. Through love, this practice transforms imbalance into balance and perfection, opening the practitioner to the experience of ultimate Oneness with the Universe. The mystical practice of Tibetan Yoga is known to awaken intrinsic abilities of the human body as those exhibited by the Tibetan Buddhist monks meditating for hours in the snow wearing nothing but thin robes. No prior yoga experience is necessary.

Eat Breathe Thrive with Chelsea Roff

In this workshop, you will learn how to integrate yoga, community and service to help your or your clients overcome disordered eating and negative body image.

As estimated 24 million Americans suffer from eating disorders, and millions more simply hate their bodies. Many of us come to yoga and meditation hoping to change or fix our “issues” only to find that no matter how many down-dogs we do…..we\’re still dissatisfied with the image in the mirror.

Designed for yoga teachers, mental health practitioners and eating disorder sufferers alike, this workshop will teach you a formula that\’s helped hundreds of people completely recover from food and body image challenges. You will learn practical, yoga-based techniques for tracking hunger and fullness signals, exercises, practices for coping with difficult emotions and overall how to create a sense of “home” in your own skin.

Workshop includes group discussion, interactive exercises, light asana and meditation.

Fee: $65.00 preregistered by September 21; $85.00 at the door

Mindful Leadership with Mark Thurston

Please register under “Workshops” for this event.

In this workshop you will explore the way in which mindfulness – as a way of being in the world – can profoundly impact your capacity to be an effective leader. (And, we are all leaders, whether or not we hold a particular title within an organization.) You will examine and personally assess some of the qualities of leadership that have been shown to expand with mindfulness practice – for example, emotional intelligence, resilience, hope, problem-solving, attentiveness, and creativity. And you will have the chance to consider some of the newer leadership models that are particularly compatible with mindfulness: Transformational Leadership, Servant Leadership, and Resonant Leadership. And finally, you will have the opportunity to consider an approach to leadership that is especially relevant to yogic practice and philosophy: Self-Leadership – that is, the application of leadership methods to your own “internal organization.”
