Join us for this special pre-festival immersion as we delve into some essential yogic teachings on the holistic nature of body, mind and soul. The ancient yogi's envisioned a map of consciousness wherein all levels of being and consciousness are connected to one source through LOVE and that we each have access to this source of being at any moment. Yoga is a holistic practice for body, mind and soul and the fullness of Yoga is experienced as we open to the deeper dimensions of our own being. Join us for a soul-full morning of inner exploration we dive teachings on the koshas, the nature of the soul (atma), karma, and the non-dual philosophy of bhakti and vedanta. We will flow through a yoga practice of heart / soul centered, and engage in breathwork, chanting, live music, and the power of community.

The Yoga Mind and Body: A Modern Guide to Essential Yoga Philosophy
Limited Capacity seats available

We love to move our bodies and work out in order to build strong and flexible yoga bodies. But without awareness of our other uniquely human equipment (your mind and your intellect), you will be vulnerable to the ups and downs of life, blindly following your impulses, desires and sensual attachments. With this in mind, internationally renowned yoga expert, speaker, and author, Rina Jakubowicz, has recently published the book The Yoga Mind―a comprehensive and fresh resource for bringing the philosophies of yoga off the mat and into your life. According to the ancient teachings of yoga, we practice yoga for self-development or Self-realization. Regardless of our intention, we can achieve this only by discovering and working on the secret key to it all: building our intellects as known as The Yoga Mind.

Presented in a clear, easy-to-understand format, this class will cover:
  • Core Principles of Yoga covering topics in yoga philosophy that are essential to understanding the practice of yoga itself
  • Guided Meditations and Simple Exercises to help you put each core principle into practice
  • Universally Applicable Poses that are appropriate for all skill levels and all schools of yoga
You’ll walk away understanding how to make hard decisions, stop procrastinating, and take action. Obtain a happier and healthier life by finding the key; a strong Yoga Mind. It’s time to take control of your life!

Prana Booster – A Pranayama Class
Limited Capacity seats available

Pranayama roughly translates from Sanskrit as “extension of prana (breath/life force)”. The breath is our main source of life energy and in yoga, pranayama techniques are used to raise, balance, and expand the field of that energy. In this class, you will have the opportunity to learn more about pranayama techniques, such as Anuloma Viloma, Kapalabhati, and Brahmaree, each with their own unique benefits ranging from calming to cleansing and energizing.

Gravity & Grace: Tools to Rewire Your Subtle Body
Limited Capacity seats available

Our mind is a powerful instrument, where we can realize everything is temporary and nothing is impossible. This is felt when we recognize our subtle body possesses many 'minds' - the mind in our head, throughout our spine, in our heart and in our gut, to name a few. With creative use of Gravity as a catalyst for movement, and Grace as a consequence of surrender, this dynamic 3-part practice will support the gentle “rewiring” of your neural circuitry responsible for effortless motion, healing, and infinite possibilities. The result helps build refined levels of attention and focus, which encourages greater sensitivity in different 'seats' of mind, and through consistent practice, builds flexibility, strength, and stillness naturally.

In this practice, we’ll align with the original intelligence of Vinyasa – to place in an intentional way, and still enjoy that flow qualities of the practice but we’ll move in a way that cultivates sharper inner focus, patience and persistence with challenge, and a broader and deeper sense of purpose. Without forsaking challenge and growth, we’ll explore how less really can be more.

SUP Yoga: Saturday Morning Align & Shine! [$]
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.
Please purchase a $20 ticket for this offering here: Specialty Class
Whether you are new to yoga or an advanced yoga practitioner, SUP Yoga provides an inclusive, rejuvenating, and fun new spin on the traditional yoga practice! It allows us to combine the physicality of Stand Up Paddle boarding and the beauty and elements of nature and floating on the water with the peace, presence, playfulness, and meditative aspects of our yoga practice. SUP Yoga provides a unique opportunity to explore our asana, pranayama, and meditation practices, while building new confidence and community on the water.

We‘re able to experience a total communion and connection with nature in a safe, accessible, relaxing, and meditative environment. It allows us to become more in tune with our yoga practice, our breath, and our sense of balance on the board, and in each asana. The confidence and courage we develop on the water and in our practice translates far beyond the paddleboard and mat and can positively affect our lives and our community in so many powerful ways. Let the water be your yoga mat and leave feeling confident, refreshed, and empowered!


Class Description:
In this 2-hour alignment-based, all-levels SUP Yoga workshop with Mary Susan we’ll share our deep appreciation of nature and the practice of yoga and welcome the sun and the day by starting the morning off feeling confident, rejuvenated, and refreshed! To begin we will take in the beauty of the San Juans as we do a 5-10 minute stretching session on land. Next, we’ll cover an introduction to Stand Up Paddleboarding including how to stand on the board, the parts of the board and paddle, basic stroke technique, different turn techniques, and how to successfully get back on the board if we are in the water.

The majority of the workshop will be spent enjoying a dynamic and compassionate yoga flow on the board as we slow down to explore precise alignment, breath work, and the fluidity of our floating practice before we end with a relaxing long savasana on our floating studio. The asana poses are presented gently and intelligently with modifications tailored to the student’s experience, practice, and comfort level. Taking our yoga practice to the paddleboard allows us to become more acutely aware of our alignment, balance, and our body in each asana, and really encourages a deeper level of focus and concentration. We are asked to be fully present in the moment, in our practice, and in nature. SUP Yoga invites a sense of playfulness back into our practice, one that we often forget to indulge in as adults.

***Following practice Mary Susan will be taking photos for anyone who would like to capture their SUP Yoga adventure on the water!

SUP Yoga: Ignite Up Your Sun Salutations [$]
Limited Capacity filling up
Please purchase a $20 ticket for this offering here: Specialty Class
Whether you are new to yoga or an advanced yoga practitioner, SUP Yoga provides an inclusive, rejuvenating, and fun new spin on the traditional yoga practice! It allows us to combine the physicality of Stand Up Paddle boarding and the beauty and elements of nature and floating on the water with the peace, presence, playfulness, and meditative aspects of our yoga practice. SUP Yoga provides a unique opportunity to explore our asana, pranayama, and meditation practices, while building new confidence and community on the water.

We‘re able to experience a total communion and connection with nature in a safe, accessible, relaxing, and meditative environment. It allows us to become more in tune with our yoga practice, our breath, and our sense of balance on the board, and in each asana. The confidence and courage we develop on the water and in our practice translates far beyond the paddleboard and mat and can positively affect our lives and our community in so many powerful ways. Let the water be your yoga mat and leave feeling confident, refreshed, and empowered!

Class Description:
In this 2-hour alignment-based, all-levels SUP Yoga workshop with Mary Susan we’ll share our deep appreciation of nature and the practice of yoga and welcome the sun and the day by starting the morning off feeling confident, rejuvenated, and refreshed! To begin we will take in the beauty of the San Juans as we do a 5-10 minute stretching session on land. Next, we’ll cover an introduction to Stand Up Paddleboarding including how to stand on the board, the parts of the board and paddle, basic stroke technique, different turn techniques, and how to successfully get back on the board if we are in the water.

The majority of the workshop will be spent enjoying a dynamic and compassionate yoga flow on the board as we slow down to explore precise alignment, breath work, and the fluidity of our floating practice before we end with a relaxing long savasana on our floating studio. The asana poses are presented gently and intelligently with modifications tailored to the student’s experience, practice, and comfort level. Taking our yoga practice to the paddleboard allows us to become more acutely aware of our alignment, balance, and our body in each asana, and really encourages a deeper level of focus and concentration. We are asked to be fully present in the moment, in our practice, and in nature. SUP Yoga invites a sense of playfulness back into our practice, one that we often forget to indulge in as adults.

***Following practice Mary Susan will be taking photos for anyone who would like to capture their SUP Yoga adventure on the water!

In this 2-hour alignment-based, all-levels SUP Yoga workshop with Mary Susan we’ll share our deep appreciation of nature and the practice of yoga and welcome the sun and the day by starting the morning off feeling confident, rejuvenated, and refreshed! To begin we will take in the beauty of the San Juans as we do a 5-10 minute stretching session on land. Next, we’ll cover an introduction to Stand Up Paddleboarding including how to stand on the board, the parts of the board and paddle, basic stroke technique, different turn techniques, and how to successfully get back on the board if we are in the water.

The majority of the workshop will be spent enjoying a dynamic and compassionate yoga flow on the board as we slow down to explore precise alignment, breath work, and the fluidity of our floating practice before we end with a relaxing long savasana on our floating studio. The asana poses are presented gently and intelligently with modifications tailored to the student’s experience, practice, and comfort level. Taking our yoga practice to the paddleboard allows us to become more acutely aware of our alignment, balance, and our body in each asana, and really encourages a deeper level of focus and concentration. We are asked to be fully present in the moment, in our practice, and in nature. SUP Yoga invites a sense of playfulness back into our practice, one that we often forget to indulge in as adults.

***Following practice Mary Susan will be taking photos for anyone who would like to capture their SUP Yoga adventure on the water!

There are two XLR output cords which require an input into your amplification system to eventually reach your speakers. If the equipment is there to tie into the events soundboard and there is a sound engineer to mix our sound that is the most preferred. We require a sound check prior to our performance/class. Monitors are required for musicians and instructors to hear themselves on stage.

How to Face the Mess We Are In Without Going Crazy*
Limited Capacity seats available

We see the mess we are in - the oceans, the earth, the pollution, the global warming, the overconsumption, the fears. We cannot retreat to our yoga studios and hide and our "Business As Usual" mindset. If we are here, we are awake, aware, and privileged. We have an obligation to get out there in the world, dig in, and "do the work," and to speak out and stand up for social justice, equality, and protection of our Mother Earth.

With support from our sanga (community) and with strong, committed yoga practice, we can shift our cultural consciousness from "faster and farther" to "balanced and sustainable". We can avoid despair and helplessness and identify and overcome the obstacles that accompany every adventurer on every journey. Join Beryl and friends in interactive process by teaming up for discussion, and creating tips to take home.

Whether you are new to yoga or an advanced yoga practitioner, SUP Yoga provides an inclusive, rejuvenating, and fun new spin on the traditional yoga practice! It allows us to combine the physicality of Stand Up Paddle boarding and the beauty and elements of nature and floating on the water with the peace, presence, playfulness, and meditative aspects of our yoga practice. SUP Yoga provides a unique opportunity to explore our asana, pranayama, and meditation practices, while building new confidence and community on the water.

We‘re able to experience a total communion and connection with nature in a safe, accessible, relaxing, and meditative environment. It allows us to become more in tune with our yoga practice, our breath, and our sense of balance on the board, and in each asana. The confidence and courage we develop on the water and in our practice translates far beyond the paddleboard and mat and can positively affect our lives and our community in so many powerful ways. Let the water be your yoga mat and leave feeling confident, refreshed, and empowered!


Class Description:
In this 2-hour alignment-based, all-levels SUP Yoga workshop with Mary Susan we’ll share our deep appreciation of nature and the practice of yoga and welcome the sun and the day by starting the morning off feeling confident, rejuvenated, and refreshed! To begin we will take in the beauty of the San Juans as we do a 5-10 minute stretching session on land. Next, we’ll cover an introduction to Stand Up Paddleboarding including how to stand on the board, the parts of the board and paddle, basic stroke technique, different turn techniques, and how to successfully get back on the board if we are in the water.

The majority of the workshop will be spent enjoying a dynamic and compassionate yoga flow on the board as we slow down to explore precise alignment, breath work, and the fluidity of our floating practice before we end with a relaxing long savasana on our floating studio.

The Art of Falling
Limited Capacity seats available

Let’s face it we are not afraid of nailing a balance whether it’s on our hands or feet, we are afraid of what might happen if we don’t! And well, isn’t this true in life? Inevitably we all fall and thank goodness. The yogi that falls the most, learns the most. The knowledge and skill we learn propels us towards our potential and prepares us for greatness.  It helps if we can make friends with our fear of falling, and with grace and newly founded awareness rise up again. Be prepared to dance your edge, tap into your deep core, feel your power, and yes fall because this is the spice of life, and where we learn the most about ourselves.  This challenging specialty class is for the yogi who desires more than what the standard yoga class offers.  We will play with and learn some exercises and asana variations that will help build strength and awareness to safely and skillfully sustain (and fall) from the crow (and transitions), headstands, handstand, forearm balances and more!

YINtrospective: The Truth Will Set You Free

This workshop begins with mindful, fluid movement to liberate your lifeforce and then settles into a hip-centric, contemplative, Yin 2.0 style practice that gives us the opportunity to explore the Truth that may arise when we make space for it.

Sound Bath to Close the Weekend
Limited Capacity filling up

Close out your transformational weekend with a Sound Bath Savasana where your body and mind are immersed in live meditative vibrational sounds of a Paiste gongs, quartz crystal and bronze singing bowls, as well as other ancient instruments. The sound vibrations emitted by the gongs and the Tibetan bowls send  signals that are interpreted at the biological, energetic and emotional levels, directing the cells to develop in a homeostatic rather than unbalanced manner.  Gong Baths bring an intense sense of well-being and re-stabilize the balance of energies.

“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies.”

Enjoy releaxing into the powerful healing and reverberating waves of sound and resound to massage, cleanse and regenerate the nervous and glandular systems. Simply lie back and have your own experience!
