Workshops/Immersions - Join Us!

These upcoming programs are unique workshops, day-long, weekend and week-long retreats from our Directors that are separate from our certification programs.

Illuminating Your Yoga Practice With the Wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita

Director(s): Yoganand Michael Carroll
Dates: October 25-27, 2019
Location: Whole Body Yoga

Many yoga practitioners respect the Bhagavad Gita as a source of inspiration. It offers the metaphor of the “spiritual battle,” and presents the yoga path as having three aspects that must be balanced: action, knowledge, and devotion.

But the Gita has much more to offer. Swami Kripalu believed that it detailed both the willful and surrender paths of hatha yoga. He wrote that every sincere practitioner would someday need to ask a teacher the same questions Arjuna asks Krishna on the mythological battlefield.

Each session of this immersion begins with a teaching from the Bhagavad Gita that adds insight to the practice of asana and pranayama. This discussion will be followed with an in-depth practice of asana and pranayama.  We’ll close each day with an integration exercise to support digesting the experience and material so students will leave grounded and inspired for further practice.

Program Times:  Friday 6-9:00pm, Saturday – Sunday 9:00am-4:00pm
Program Cost:

  • $35 Friday Evening
  • $150 per day ($300 if register for both)
  • $300 Earlybird price for entire weekend by September 25, 2019

The Deep Roots of Yoga

Director(s): Yoganand Michael Carroll
Dates: November 1-3, 2019
Location: Salt Tree Yoga

“Yoga is 6,000 years old, right?”  We will explore the historical beginnings of yoga, the early yogis and their Upanishadic philosophy, influences of Samkyhya and Buddhism, and the medieval development and decline of Tantra Yoga and its ultimate reformation into Hatha Yoga.  While the yogic practices have changed dramatically over the millennia, the goals of the practitioners have remained remarkably stable; and so we find these philosophies rich and fertile areas for the development of a meaningful and dynamic context and personal intention for practice today.  Practice sessions will be interspersed with lecture and discussion sessions.  Practices will introduce and include pranayama, khumbaks, the bandhas and incorporate these into the asana practices where appropriate.  Those already familiar with the practices will be encouraged to move and practice at a depth that supports them, while those new to the practices will be led in a guided and structured experience.

Program Times:  Friday 6-9:00pm, Saturday – Sunday 9:00am-4:00pm
Program Cost:

  • $35 Friday Evening
  • $175 per day ($350 if register for both)
  • $350 for entire weekend
  • $300 Earlybird price for entire weekend by 4 weeks out October 13, 2019
