DRUMMING ALIVE with Teela Hammell and James Fleischmann. You have all the knowledge and wisdom of the universe within you. Let’s talk about how to access it. This workshop will begin with body-wisdom concepts and ways that we can access this wisdom for application in our everyday lives. You’ll come away with a greater understanding of how to hear what your body is desperately trying to say. Next comes a soulful Vinyasa Flow-Style Yoga, designed to enhance body awareness, increase intuitive connection, and move stale energy. Live drumming will accompany us as we create heat throughout the flow. In addition to moving and creating more energy in our practice, the drum will lead our breath by signaling the inhales and exhales. Intentional breathing is one of the most important things we can do on and off the mat. Put simply, an intentional breath is a healing breath, and the drum will bring you home to its power. As you rest into your final savasana, the drum will offer you one final gift. Through a process called “entrainment,” your brainwaves will sync to the beat of the drum, reducing the speed of your mind effortlessly to the meditative “theta-state.” You’ll float in this state until we bring you back at the end of the workshop, all the while receiving Reiki and the healing resonance of the drum. The DRUMMING ALIVE workshop is a fusion of yoga, drum healing, Reiki, and body-wisdom teachings that will help you to:

– Learn to hear the authentic Wisdom of your body
– Cultivate Present Moment Awareness
– Enter a deep meditative theta-state (i.e. deep peace & intuition) effortlessly via Drum Entrainment
– Move stagnant energy in Soul-flow Vinyasa Yoga
– Change your cells’ vibration with Live Drumming
– Connect to the Healing Power of your breath
– Bathe in the healing energy of Reiki

LEARN THE ART AND SCIENCE OF YOGA NIDRA with Indu Arora. Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice with incredible relevance in the modern world. With an excess of tension and worries, discomforts and uneasiness, fear and phobias, our students need a vehicle to connect deeply to their true nature, to peace, health, and self-awareness.

The training is open to 200-hour teachers, teacher trainees, or students with at least three years of yoga practice. Only RYT’s are eligible for 50 CEU’s from Yoga Alliance.
