Addiction, Compulsion and The Healing Powers of Yoga
Define addiction from various points of view.
Explain the neurological path and social reasons for addictions.
Correlate the recovery process with the yoga journey.
Lecture and discussion followed by a practice.
We end with a somatic yoga session to let the brain breathe and the nervous system absorbs the impact of the material; body, mind, and spirit.
This workshop will offer tools to support recovery and deepen their yoga practice.
SELF CARE AND SANTOSHA RETREAT MARCH 2 – 4, 2018
This lovely location has hosted us for the past few years. We will have the Pine Room for our discourse and practices and the great outdoors for hiking, meditation, and companionship. Come and enjoy this wonderful place.
The Art of Letting Go is the topic for this year’s retreat. We will investigate how we hold, on, what that does to our mind, body, and spirit, and how we can determine what is really holding us back. We will create God Boxes, talk and listen to music. Prices vary by room selection: private, double or shared (more than two.)

APRIL 8, 2017 1 – 3:30PM
Take a little time for yourself. Nourish your five koshas (the energetic, physical, emotional, wisdom and spiritual bodies) with some simple pranayama (Breath) practices, some restorative poses and close with a half hour yoga nidra practice
This is a great sequence to help you through periods of indecision or deciding, re-focussing and balancing. Doing “nothing” is a profound way to pause and allow the “something” of the back mind to come forth without force or expectation. Pause, breathe – refresh and reset.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Discover and practice ways to use the breath to energize and to calm
Give the body a timeout
Give all levels of the psyche a timeout (conscious, sub conscious and unconscious thought)
WHAT TO BRING / WEAR?
Wear comfortable clothes
A special pillow if you have one
Eye pillow or other comfort item
