Bhakti Barre Workshop with Maria Elliot

Go deeper into your mind-body connection than ever before with Bhakti Barre. Combining Asanas to cultivate awareness, relaxation, and concentration, and the small controlled movements of a Barre workout, with a dash of Bhakti Yoga, this class will challenge you to take your mind to the muscle, while working on your posture, balance, flexibility, and strength. Where your attention goes your energy flows and you will need every ounce during this 75 minute class!

Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of Devotion. Devotion is universal--to God, a higher power, the Source Energy, or to one’s self. Throughout the class you will be led toward the cultivation of love and tolerance by acknowledging the Divine within yourself. Once we are able to surrender to the power within, we can let it spread, not only to our shaking muscles, but into the world around us.

Maria is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor at Kyle House Fitness, and a Health Coach trained through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She received her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in Athens, Ohio at Inhale Yoga Studio in 2010, and has 3 years experience as a Barre instructor.

Assisting 101 w/Sara Mingus

Cost: $285 // Early Bird Discount: Use Code- Assist2019 and SAVE $35 if you register and pay by 12/1/2018

Friday 5pm-10pm (5 hours)
Saturday 1pm-7pm (6 hours)
Sunday 9am-5pm (8 hours)

19 hours towards Yoga Alliance Credit & 3 Practicum Hours//This is one of the REQUIRED modules for our 300 Hour TT Program

Open to ALL Practitioners w/at least 1 year yoga practice.

What is assisting?
Have you ever been in class and had someone touch you, assist you, at just the right time? It encouraged you to go deeper into a pose while providing support and a sense of calm. It was done with a loving intention and is just what you needed at that particular moment. A powerful assist has the ability to change the way a person views her practice and herself.

Assisting is about connecting with others.

A workshop for everyone!
Step onto the other side of the mat. By being part of this program you’ll learn more about your own yoga practice and gain an understanding of the postures that will let you break them down and play with them.

Hands-on assisting is a skill rarely taught, even in most teacher-training programs.
•Have you ever wondered what it means to “deepen your practice”?
•Do you want to have a greater understanding of the poses, as well as the alignment principles and anatomy behind them?
•Have you ever thought about teaching?

This is an action based, participatory program. You’ll be getting in there, working with the postures as you give and receive assists. You benefit from both giving and receiving, as you learn how different assists feel in your own body.
This workshop is open to everyone. Assisting others in class is a way to serve and connect with our larger community. It’s an opportunity to “give back” and at the same time explore your own practice. And if you are considering teaching at some point in the future, Assisting 101 lets you experience being on the teaching side of the mat without having to lead the class.

You will learn:
•Basic skeletal anatomy
•How to assist safely and effectively
•The lines of energy that let you assist any pose, even those new to you
•The qualities of a great assist that heighten the experience for the student
•How to create a safe space for people to trust and find a new edge.

After completing this program you will have the opportunity to try out to assist for Southern Soul Yoga.

Join Madia Swicord for an in-depth weekend of exploring the Chakras as an experiential introduction to the Core of Yoga Psychology.

Our chakra system is composed of energy centers along the spine that hold the key to our spiritual evolution and sense of well-being. These symbolic spinning wheels affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

The chakras are organizational hubs that receive, assimilate, store, and transmit life force energy/prana. Together the seven chakras provide a profound architecture for wholeness which unifies mind, body, and spirit.
“Energy is the interface between the mind and the physical body. Like the electricity that connects your software to your hardware, energy connects your mind to your body.

"The programming of the mind, largely unconscious, tells the energy where to go and where not to go in the body Some of these programs serve us well, others create blockages” ~ Anodea Judith

We will begin the journey into how these 7 main energy centers that hold all of our life experiences and future potential.

"Emotion always has its roots in the unconscious and manifests itself in the body". ~Irene Claremont de Castillejo

In this training, you will also learn how to:

  • Develop awareness of 7 energetic centers in the body and how they influence our emotional, physical, mental & spiritual self
  • Explore 6 emotions of the body: Fear, Guilt, Anger, Shame, Joy, Grief
  • Explore the power of the subtle body to influence and shape the physical body (our biography becomes our biology)
  • Vary the Sun and moon Salutation flow to reflect each chakra
  • Incorporate pranayama, mantra, and mudra into chakra practice
  • Understand excess and deficiency in the chakras

An integration of Hatha, Kundalini and deep flow Yoga poses will be experienced to support the awareness of the chakras in your own body/mind for deeper digestion of the information

This course is for anyone wishing to develop their understanding of the chakras and their emotional, physical, mental and energetic effect on the body & mind.
enjoy a balanced weekend of yoga practice, interactive lecture, discussion and self-reflection.

  • Please come prepared to practice and bring a journal for self-reflection

Detox: Cell to Soul w/Kelsey & Sara at Rising Fawn Gardens

It is time, once and for all, to get over what the ”beast/wolf/ non desirable/ less preferred/ ego” in you wants to consume. To get over your lower impulses. To rise above what is keeping you down. Holding you back. It is time to find a different way.

Life is by definition regenerative. Life on it’s own given the right conditions is radiance, strength, purity, clarity, creativity, effortlessness, and endless beauty.

During this work shop we will give foundational tools to become the director of your life. To rid yourself of accumulation of all things excess: diet, material, relationships, emotions and more.

We will work on deep tissue cleansing from every cell to your soul. How to break it up, how to eliminate it.

Register Here: $40 includes class and post yoga hors d’oeuvres provided by Southern Squeeze

The work begins within..
Come take part in this journey with us.
