Rhonda Kuster: Sanskrit Level 2 Workshop

Date

Saturday, August 31 from 1:00p to 5:00p

Teacher

Rhonda Kuster

Cost

$75

For the first time Rhonda is offering this workshop that builds on what you learned in her Level 1 class. Rhonda will briefly review what you learned in Level 1, including the Sanskrit alphabet sounds, understanding the diacritical marks and the five mouth positions.

Then the class will delve more deeply into this ancient beautiful language to learn how to pronounce more asana names and inquire into the stories of some of the yoga poses, such as Virabhadrasana and Matsyendrasana, and how Ganesha got his name (and his elephant head!).

You’ll learn the proper pronunciation of the chakras and chant their associated bija mantras in various ways so we can understand how to use them in order to bring more harmony to our subtle body system.

You’ll learn chants in greater depth including the Gayatri Mantra and the Purnamadah Purnamidam invocation from the Isha Upanishad, more of Patanjali’s yoga sutras and one of The Radiance Sutras (Lorin Roche’s translation of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra) beloved by so many of us. Rhonda will also share with you the 7 different ways to chant mantras that she learned from her teacher, Jehangir Palkhivala.

Our Sanskrit journey continues here. Bring an inquisitive mind, an open heart, and a voice that's ready to sing these deeply meaningful and eloquent chants.

A $50.00 cancellation fee is included in the workshop cost. No refunds will be given within 30 days of the start date of workshop.

Teacher

Doug Keller

Cost

$287 Early bird enrollment if paid by September 18: $257

We welcome Doug Keller back to Yoga on High after a break of several years. Doug is a teacher who is always learning, and we very much look forward to his offerings this year. A wise, funny and humble teacher, Doug embodies what we love about yoga.

This year Doug will focus on learning anatomic and therapeutic practices to support shoulders and knees. The knee section will also provide tools and insights into problems with the hips and feet.

The training is structured to help teachers understand more deeply the therapeutic rationale behind alignment and action instructions in yoga poses — and to know when these instructions are helpful and appropriate, and when variations or a different emphasis are necessary. Instructions are clear, specific and user-friendly, and backed up by knowledge of the anatomy involved in the movements as well as an understanding of the common therapeutic problems that bring students to yoga seeking help. Asana sections will demonstrate the principles taught.

Beyond its usefulness in the classroom, the training is structured to give tools of assessment and sequencing for ‘mini-series’ of asanas and exercises for working individually with students on therapeutic problems. These ideas will also be helpful for sequencing larger classes or groups working with therapeutic problems in common.

And by our request, Doug will include time on Sunday morning for pranayama and meditation.

This workshop is appropriate for those who have already studied with Doug seeking to reinforce what they have learned and looking for new insights to add to what they know. Likewise, the training always proves to be very accessible to teachers and advancing students coming for the first time, seeking deeper insight into yoga, its rationale, and its benefits.

Sunday, November 3, 2019 from 10:00a to 4:00p

Teacher

Michele Vinbury

Cost

$327. Early bird enrollment if paid in full by July 31: $297

This workshop offers teachers an opportunity to explore the concepts and methods that underpin trauma sensitive yoga while experiencing parts of the EMBER yoga curriculum. It is intended for yoga teachers, meditation instructors, and practitioners with relevant professional experience who are interested in bringing mindfulness-based tools of proven effectiveness to underserved or at-risk populations. 

EMBER (Mindfulness-based Emotional Resilience) is a twelve-week resilience training program geared toward women and men from underserved communities who are rebuilding their lives after trauma. In this weekend workshop, EMBER co-founders Michele Vinbury and Marybeth Hamilton offer an introduction to the curriculum, which they have implemented in prisons, hospitals, and organizations responding to substance abuse, domestic violence, and human trafficking. YOHI’s co-founder Marcia Miller draws on her long experience of teaching traumatized populations to join Michele and Marybeth in the teaching of the psychology of trauma and the principles of trauma-sensitive yoga. Psychiatrist and yoga teacher Lee Shackelford shares relevant  aspects of brain anatomy and function to shed light on how yoga can facilitate the integration of traumatic experiences for more healthful everyday functioning in the world. 

The weekend training will include:

  • An exploration of portions of EMBER’s evidence-based, trauma-informed, culturally-sensitive methodology for working with women in prison, in transition, and in recovery. (This is not an EMBER Trauma Sensitive Yoga Teacher Certification Training - we offer that in a 9-mo 100hr format.)

  • Discussion of the foundations of the EMBER curriculum: trauma-sensitive yoga, restorative yoga, pranayama, and mindfulness-based yoga nidra.

  • An experience of two EMBER classes

  • A review of clinical research on the practical application of mindfulness-based practices for emotional and psychological issues, including PTSD.

  • An exploration of the dynamics of creating “safe space” for practice in challenging institutional settings, particularly the singular environment of prison.

  • Instruction in specific asana, pranayama and meditation practices that have been proven effective with women and men in challenging settings and circumstances.

  • Exploration of student-teacher dynamics, including issues of transference, boundaries, and the importance of teacher self-care

  • How to get started: practical strategies for establishing classes in prisons, therapeutic communities, hospitals, detention centers, and rehabilitation facilities.

A $100.00 cancellation fee is included in the workshop cost. No refunds will be given within 30 days of the start date of workshop.

Come and immerse yourself in beautiful sounds that are healing to your body, mind and soul. Relax while the vibrations of the Himalayan Singing Bowls wash over you bringing you quickly to a deep state of relaxation. The Himalayan Singing Bowls are crafted from 7 metals that make a musical 'singing' sound when played with a mallet. In addition to a primary tone, singing bowls produce a complex series of subtle overtones that create a uniquely soothing sound. The art of creating Tibetan singing bowls has been handed down from generation to generation within family clans. Sandra's bowls are made by a family clan whose work can be traced back to the time of the Buddha. Sandra trained several years in the Shuniya tradition which honors the ancient foundation of sound healing created by Master Tibetan and Nepalese practitioners.

The Yohi back office people have experienced Sandra’s sound baths several times and we give her our highest recommendation.

Mastering the Art Of Vinyasa Yoga Sequencing 3 Day Teacher Development + Inspiration Program with Jason Crandell

WHY I CREATED THIS TRAINING

Having trained hundreds of teachers over the course of nearly two decades, the most common challenges that forI see teachers struggle with involve sequencing—and, each of these problems eventually leads to burnout. The first challenge is that many teachers haven’t learned to properly sequence in their foundational program. They’ve learned to memorize and teach a sequence, but they haven’t learned how to construct their own sequences in a logical, progressive way. The second challenge is when that teachers can burn themselves out by constantly creating new sequences from week-to-week, or day-to-day. In this scenario, teachers often stress themselves out by putting pressure on themselves to constantly create new and different combinations, —ooften at the expense of being consistent with their students. The last sequencing struggle that leads to burnout is when teachers don’t completely understand the anatomical foundations for safe, successful, productive sequencing.

I created this program from years of experience to solve address all of these challenges—and, to help you create authentic, effective, logical sequences that make a positive impact in the lives of your students.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS TRAINING

This program will provide you with the tools to develop meaningful, authentic and effective sequences for your classes and personal practice. It will provide you with the knowledge, inspiration and technique to generate fresh, safe sequences that represent your voice and vision as a teacher. You will learn the anatomical rationale that underscores safe, effective sequencing for every postural category. You’ll minimize burnout and ensure that you have a larger, more consistent student population by avoiding the most common sequencing challenges that teachers face.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT EACH DAY OF THE TRAINING

You will get plenty of practice during this training. Each day starts with seated meditation followed by an accessible, hands-on anatomy discussion that illuminates the sequencing topic of the day. Then, you’ll launch into a strong, 2-hr hour vinyasa practice that explores the anatomy and sequencing concepts of the day. In the afternoon, you’ll break down the anatomical details further while discussing the sequencing principles for each of the pose categories. Each afternoon will conclude with another, shorter practice that illustrates the sequencing topic of the day.

THE TOPICS COVERED IN THIS PROGRAM

This program covers every aspect of sequencing, including the anatomical rationale that underscores safe and compelling sequences. This program covers the following topics:

DAY 1: Sequencing with Authenticity and Purpose

DAY 2: Turning Inward: Sequencing for Safe, Effective Forward Bends

Creating Space and Freedom: Sequencing for Efficient Backbends

DAY 3: Releasing Tension: Sequencing for Cleansing Twists

Taking Flight: Sequencing for Strong, Stable Arm Balances

THIS PROGRAM IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF

  • You want to teach vinyasa yoga with a more structured, consistent method that helps your students refine and advance their practice.

  • You want to become a more successful, in-demand teacher by refining your skills and creating more consistent, compelling classes for your students.

  • You want to refine and rededicate yourself to your personal practice while elevating the consistency and quality of your teaching.

  • You need help balancing alignment techniques with the rhythm and movement of vinyasa yoga.

  • You need support finding your own voice as a yoga teacher.

  • You want a modern, credible, consistent approach to vinyasa yoga that is safe, skillful and effective.

Two Part Master Session: Balancing Strength and Flexibility in Vinyasa Yoga

Over 20 years ago I stopped playing sports, said good riddance to the gym, and rolled out my yoga mat for what would become a long romance with Vinyasa yoga. Since I couldn’t touch my toes, let alone do a backbend, my singular physical focus was to create more flexibility. I was strong, but I had no range of motion. Since the grass is always greener—and I didn’t truly understand that strength and flexibility are not mutually exclusive—I focused too heavily on flexibility. Then, like so many yoga practitioners, the over-stretch issues started showing up: sacro-iliac instability, sacro-lumbar strain, hamstring insertion pain, shoulder pain within deep flexion, and more. Oh yeah… then I turned 40 and I realized I couldn’t take strength and conditioning for granted any longer.

For the last few years, my practice has circled back to creating functional strength and stability within my body—without compromising my flexibility. I’ve learned that strengthening my body doesn’t decrease my range of motion when it’s done right. I’ve revised nearly every element of my Vinyasa yoga sequencing to create muscular balance throughout my body—especially the regions that are excessively vulnerable in Vinyasa yoga including the hamstrings, external rotators, sacro-iliac region, and shoulders. I’ve learned from my mistakes.

It might seem obvious that we need to balance strength and flexibility in Vinyasa yoga. But the reality is that we don’t. Not even close. This 2-part Master Session is the culmination of many years spent revising elements of Vinyasa yoga in order to create a more balanced and sustainable practice.

Morning Session: Strength + Stability for Your Core & Spine

Your core is much more than your abdominals. And, your abdominals are much more than those muscles that you dare to look at in the mirror. This dynamic vinyasa practice will create balanced, sustainable strength in all of the muscles that comprise your core and spine. In addition to enjoying a satisfying, strong flow practice, you’ll learn the following takeaways:

  • How to strengthen all of your abdominal muscles—not just the ones that fail to look back at you in the mirror.

  • How to strengthen your spinal muscles to create lasting comfort in your back and greater safety in your yoga practice.

  • Why the rotational muscles of your core are integral to functional strength and how to use them in your practice.

  • How to connect the strength of your core to the power of your hips and legs.

  • How core strength supports all your postures, including backbends, twists and arm balances.

Afternoon Session: Shoulders, Neck and Upper Back Flow

This dynamic flow will create balanced strength and flexibility in your shoulders, neck and upper-back. You’ll learn how subtle changes to your vinyasa practice can produce lasting, positive changes in your shoulders. In addition to enjoying a satisfyingly strong flow practice, you’ll learn the following takeaways:

  • How to strengthen your scapular muscles to improve your posture—and your chaturanga.

  • How to create balanced strength and flexibility in your entire shoulder girdle—minimizing the chance of pain and discomfort in your shoulders.

  • How to use your shoulders correctly in all postures where the arms reach overhead, such as Handstand, Forearm Balance and Upward-Facing Bow.

  • How to save your wrists from the long-term stress of vinyasa yoga.

  • How to relieve chronic discomfort in the shoulders, neck and upper back.

  • How sound is used in meditation

  • The role and application of pranayama, mudras, mantras and yantras

  • Basic neuroscience of meditation

This course has been created to ensure that you will have ample time for questions and answers, and to talk about your experiences.  You will have an opportunity to practice teaching meditation to your peers and to get feedback from them and from your teachers. On the final weekend you will present a meditation for beginners.

Classes will be both in-person and through conference calls, supported by a manual and our online educational platform. To foster a small teacher-student ratio, each student will be part of a small group with a mentor who will be available for support and questions on a regular basis.

Date

Friday, October 9 to Sunday, October 11
Retreat starts before dinner on Friday and ends after lunch on Sunday.

Teachers

Marcia Miller & Lori Moffett

Cost

$450; please register by September 1.

This weekend retreat will offer you a place, a time and a community to bear witness to your questions, fears and grief related to death. Death is an unavoidable and natural part of life—and knowing this at a deep level allows us to more fully savor the life we have. It is so important to set aside time on purpose to talk, explore, share and cry together in an environment where those conversations are welcome. This year’s theme will be focused especially around skillfully experiencing grief, and all explorations around death are also welcome.

During this retreat, we will care for body, mind and heart through a variety of practices including regular yoga and Urban Zen classes, meditation (walking, seated and lying down), contemplation exercises, and times to share in structured and unstructured conversations with each other. Reiki practitioners will be on hand to offer energetic support. This retreat can be a time of profound renewal for those working with the sick and dying, those with terminal diagnoses and for those grieving loved ones who have already died.

Comments from past retreatants:

“I can’t imagine anything can surpass the experience of Dialogue about Death. It seems quite unusual to have this many people come together and bond enough to feel safe in sharing such intimate details about life and death. It was magical. On a personal note, I came thinking I had completed so much work around death and dying during and after my 15 years of hospice experience that there wasn’t much more to explore. Once again, humbled by this experience of life and reminded that there is always, always, always more to uncover. Your facilitating of this event seemed to wrap a big hug around the room to offer a safe experience for those willing to share and grow. Thank you again, Marcia.” ~ Sally Casey

“By the end of the weekend, it was so free and nourishing to sit with someone, not having anything to fix, or respond, just to BE with them. By far it changes the whole dynamic of energy between both parties, it is so relaxing. That has been the incorporated life changer from this retreat…I left feeling rejuvenated, connected with others, and more hopeful towards my forward journey through life.” ~Theresa Wells

Retreat Staff:

Marcia Miller is a certified yoga therapist, a facilitator of death conversations, and someone who bears witness to the challenges of life and death as best as she can. She is one of the owners of Yoga on High, a Master Teacher and curriculum designer for the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy program, and a Reiki Master teaching Reiki in Central Ohio and around the country. Her passions of yoga, gardening and knitting have all taught her a great deal about life and death.

Lori Guth Moffett is a certified Yoga Teacher and Reiki Master, Director of the UZIT program at Zusman Hospice, and UZIT Master Teacher. Since 2013, Lori has sat at the bedside of the dying; she believes bearing witness is the heart and soul of the UZIT practice and her best teachers are those who are in that bed taking their last breath. The only way Lori is able to do work at the bedside of the dying is caring deeply for her mind, body, and spirit by spending time with people and animals she loves, the UZIT practice, being in nature, working out, and attending Friday night Shabbat services at Temple Israel.

The weekend will begin with an exploration of the bandhas, physically and anatomically, and how they relate to breathing. Then you will apply those concepts to the intricate movements into and out of the poses throughout a Modified Primary Series practice.

On Saturday afternoon we will look at safely modifying and working towards poses that include lotus, followed by the actions, alignment and anatomy of backbends.

On Sunday morning we will start with “dessert first,” including actions, alignment and anatomy of the inversions Sarvangasana (shoulderstand) and Sirsasana (headstand). Then we’ll move, breath by breath, through the entire Primary Series.

In the afternoon we’ll host “Asana Doctor” where any questions will be answered through your bodies; we’ll take the question and then explore answers experientially. You’ll get a chance to have a greater understand of approaching some of the more challenging poses, which vary from person. Find your entry ways into poses you might be tempted to ignore or avoid.

Come join us for a journey with The Radiance Sutras, a love-drenched classic yoga meditation text that was clearly intended for people who live in the real world. The Sutras present meditation as a process of falling in love with life, with the pulsations and rhythms of the life force itself as it flows in our bodies. The text describes 112 different doorways into contact with the soul, ranging from breathing practices, to kundalini awakenings, to just letting your mind wander, to listing to inner sounds such as mantas, to rocking out to music, dancing, feasting, lovemaking, communing with nature, experiencing intense emotions.

Anyone can practice these methods of meditation. We each have our favorite ways which we can get better at as we develop new skills. Learn meditation practices that you can take home and practice on your own, that truly suit your individual nature. The emphasis is on naturalness, spontaneity, and being at home in yourself and in nature.

Dr. Lorin Roche began meditating in 1968 as part of scientific research at the University of California. He was trained as a meditation teacher in 1970 and has been sharing the delight ever since. His work focuses on individual differences, helping each person find the meditation practices and styles that help them to thrive. He has a PhD from the University of California at Irvine for his studies of the language meditators use to describe their inner experiences. Dr. Roche is the author of Meditation Made Easy, (HarperOne, 1998); with his wife, Camille Maurine, he wrote Meditation Secrets for Women (HarperOne, 2001). The Radiance Sutras, a new version of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, has been published by Sounds True. Lorin and his yogini shaktini wife, Camille Maurine, live in Marina del Rey, California.

Reiki Workshop on Clean Language

Reiki Workshop on Clean Language

Date

Sunday, June 9 from 9:00a to 5:00p

Teacher

Marcia Miller & Linda Oshins

Cost

$145

Receiving Reiki is an invitation to enter a vitalizing process of healing and revelation. As givers, how do we talk to the receivers in order to bear witness to their process without inhibiting it, without injecting ourselves and our biases into it and changing or limiting its course? In the 1980s, psychotherapist David Grove developed a method called Clean Language to engage with clients without subtly influencing them. Clean Language is a way of helping another to stay with an unfolding process, just as it is, or to develop a metaphor for their experience as it is lived. A metaphor invites us to make sense of something by comparing it to something else as opposed to thinking through our experiences and trying to solve our problems outright or make the uncomfortable or unhappy aspects of our life go away. Developing a metaphor, a dynamic engagement, encourages us to embody arising insight and to change moment by moment as the metaphor unfolds. It is a respectful and dedicated way of holding safe space over time.

Marcia and Linda have practiced Clean Language from the early days of their training, but rarely teach it. Clean Language is not intuitive and requires practice. In this workshop you will watch examples of Marcia and Linda using Clean Language in healing sessions and practice this method yourself.

Reiki Level 2 or above required to join this workshop; you need not have gone through the Yoga on High Reiki program to enroll.

A $50.00 cancellation fee is included in the workshop cost. No refunds will be given within 30 days of the start date of workshop.

One of the most important skills a teacher can have is the skill of observation. There is a lot of information in front of you in every moment, but you’re not necessarily aware of it until it’s pointed out. In the Yoga Anatomy Observation Workshop you will learn to use tools to enable you to see more of what a student is doing and/or not doing. Seeing more can make all the difference in the adjustments or cues you give to a student in a particular pose.

In the Yoga Anatomy Observation Workshop we begin to develop “our eyes” by first recognizing that we each have our own biases and that these biases can color what we think we see. We then use the technique of conducting a formal postural analysis to develop the practice of “seeing” more objectively. The technique of completing a full postural analysis also trains us to “see” at a greater level of detail.

The next step or level of observation, is observation in movement. We will apply the observation techniques that we’ve learned to the observation of people in one of the most fundamental movements: walking. We’ll then practice a more visceral method of observation by mimicking the patterns that we see in students walking. This adds a kinesthetic component to our understanding of what we observe is going on in an individual’s body. This exercise is a great reminder that we often need to put ourselves inside the student’s posture (asana) to more fully understand what they’re experiencing. With the addition of that kinesthetic knowledge, we may have a better idea how to support the student in their pose.

Finally, we will take our “eyes” back to the yoga mat and observe poses. We’ll use all our observation skills as we observe transitions into and out of postures as well as the more static state of the asana itself. With our new observation skills, we become more informed. The verbal cues or hands-on adjustments that we use to guide students will now be more skillful because they are based on observations that are less biased, more detailed, and generally more informed.

Topics covered:

  • Quick review of anatomy

  • Learn to see what has been in front of you all along

  • Detailed postural analysis

  • See the anatomy in movement

  • See the anatomy in asanas

  • Individualize instruction based on what you see

This class will explore the energetic and felt sensory experience in the body through breath, meditation and art. We will cycle through periods of guided meditation and mindful watercolor painting, opening to new creative possibilities in our bodies and on paper. No prior art or meditation experience required.

Marica Miller Shares: If you ever thought (or someone told you) that you are not an artist, then this is the workshop for you. If you can breathe and hold a paint brush then you can make art with Katie as your guide. Her presence and instructions are just what you need to let go of fear and judgment about yourself and your ability to make art. I have worked with her several times and each time felt such exhilaration, freedom and joy. In one of my paintings I also discovered a deep message that is still helping me to live one of my highest values. AND, if you already know yourself to be an artist then this workshop will be pure bliss for you too!

Katie Whitsett holds a BA in Studio Art from Hanover College and is currently working with watercolors and more recently ceramics. She has melded her art and yoga lineages using art and meditation as mediums for exploring breath, energy, and the innate beauty that is within each of us.

Give up cooking, cleaning and shopping for 90 minutes and let us support you!

Experience simple yoga practices and guided meditation along with Reiki, aromatherapy and other healing practices to help you relax deeply and experience your inner peace, ease and well-being.

While retailers want you to shop hard on Black Friday and Cyber-Monday, we are inviting you to take this time, “Self-Care Sunday,” to recharge. We’ve found that plugging into just 90 minutes of self-care can reset your stressed-out system for days! Self-Care is good medicine.

After the 60-minute practice there will be time to have tea, a panel discussion and sharing with others about what consistent and enjoyable self-care might look like for you. Come with friends and family for an extra bonus of bliss.

Entire practice is appropriate for all levels, no experience necessary.

Yoga + Our Wild Nature: Exploring Women Who Run with the Wolves

Date

Saturday, November 3 from 2:00p to 4:00p

Teacher

Danielle Dugan

Cost

$25

Together we’ll look at the archetype of “wild woman” and invite her to step onto the mat with us. Through yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, mudras, sound, and writing, we’ll come back to our instinctive nature and perhaps catch a glimpse of our self that exists beyond rigid expectations and boundaries. As modern humans, we do not need to be a “blur of activity,” as Clarissa Pinkola Estes says. We can choose to slow down, to listen, to question, to find rhythm, to explore, to rediscover the creature beneath it all.

A $15.00 cancellation fee is included in the cost of this workshop. No refunds will be given within 7 days of the start date of workshops.

The Feminine Face of Yoga with Anne Douglas

$297. Early bird enrollment if paid in full by September 26th: $257

The Classical teachings of Yoga arose in a time of patriarchal rule, with a masculine perspective for a male audience, to the exclusion of women. And yet out of an estimated 18 million practitioners in the world today, most of them are women. How does this powerful gender shift in the users and teachers of yoga impact the continued flowering of the practice of yoga?

The Feminine Face of Yoga embraces the corporeal experiences of emotion, gut intuition, sensuality and embodiment, while building on the masculine path of intellect, renunciation and transcendence as a path to Freedom. This integrated view may even provide answers to the global environmental and political crisis we all face.

Join us this weekend to explore the feminine principle that is at the heart of the Yogic Teachings. During this weekend we will:

  • Review the Foundational Philosophies of Yoga

  • Explore the pre-historical feminine roots of Yoga

  • Discuss some of the essential expressions of the feminine in yoga

  • Experience the wisdom and potency of the feminine as celebrated in the Tantric texts that include the Vijnanabhairava and the Spandakarika

  • Uncover feminine variations of practices from the Yoga Sutras

  • Build a vision for the future of yoga that embraces both the masculine & feminine

  • Practice BodySensing, Hatha Yoga, Breath Sensing, Pranayama, iRest Yoga Nidra & Meditation

Anne Douglas is a teacher of teachers. She has been teaching yogic philosophy, teacher trainings, workshops and retreats since 1989, and is a certified IAYT yoga therapist. She is the creator of the “iRest Daily” meditation program and past Director of Trainers for the iRest Institute. Anne’s boundless enthusiasm, depth of wisdom and gentle humor create fertile ground for inspired learning.

A $50.00 cancellation fee is included in the workshop cost. No refunds will be given within 30 days of the start date of workshop.
