July 7-9
Hatha Yoga & Philosophy Intensive with Bhavani Maki

The Nadi - Subtle Energy Channels
Classically, Hatha Yoga clears the Nadi, or conduits of prana, as channels for the awakening of consciousness and the development of spiritual power. We will integrate the yogik practices of asana, pranayama, the Patanjali Yoga Sutra, psychology, neuroscience and the development of emotional intelligence to further enhance our exploration and experience of Yoga as the science and art of Self Realization. Come share in the joy of learning, in an exploration of the Nadi, or subtle body energy channels, that open us to the spiritual life.

Friday, July 7th from 5:30-7:30pm; $25
Introduction to the Patanjali Yoga Sutra; The Yogi's Road Map

Classically, the Yoga practitioner in the East is well equipped with the definitive guide to the Yogic process, Patanjali's Yoga Sutra. In the West, we are left to negotiate and navigate our ways with little or no advice. The Yoga Sutra are considered to be the definitive text for Yoga and a map of the Yogic experience. Revealing the deeper underlying nature of our being, and how to quell our self-negating tendencies, the indescribable is well described, and is indispensable in helping us to proceed with confidence, clarity, and ultimately, effectiveness.

Saturday, July 8th from 9-11:30am; $40
Drdah Bhumih: Firmly Grounded-Standing & Balancing Postures

Patanjali encourages yoga aspirants to develop a practice that is steadfast and firmly grounded. We will investigate standing and balancing postures as a means to systematically approach to stabilize our connection to the Earth with the intent of accessing greater freedom within the self. Diagnostic as well as curative, these postures are the vehicle for developing a sustainable practice that has the qualities of integrity in alignment and form.

Saturday, July 8th from 2-4:30pm; $40
Patanjali Yoga Sutra Talk II: Navigating Consciousness

If Yoga is the dissolving of all self-negating thought patterns, and tendencies, then getting free is the key! We will continue to explore Patanjali's prescription of Jungle Medicine (Yoga), through Yoga's diagnostic process, the remedies, and health of the mind, body, and spirit.

Sunday, July 9th from 9-11:30am; $40
Hip openers, the Keys to Freedom

Unlocking the pelvis liberates the stem of the spine, the flower of the brain and ultimately the nectar of clear consciousness. We will explore the seated postures of the Ashtanga Yoga system, in a way that is safe for the knees, and appropriate for the spine.

Sunday, July 9th from 2-4:30pm; $40
Klesha: Developing Emotional Intelligence

In this next conversation, we will continue to spin the wonderful stories of the Yoga Sutra, and explore how the stories' imagery opens a window into the inner workings of the psyche. Journey further into the workings of your mind and emotions, as Patanjali maps out the 5 Klesha, or afflictions, at the root of all suffering.

July 14-16
Yoga Workshops with Nicole Peltier

​Friday July 14, 6:00-7:15pm; Florida Rd. $18
Rock'n Hip Hop Yoga​

Have you ever "jogged the dog" to hip-hop? Ready to try something different and maybe get a lil' jiggy wid it? Try this outta the box and off the hook yoga class. Actually, this class puts familiar yoga poses to the beat of hip-hop, pop & Rock’n Roll music, which takes the practice to whole different level of creativity and rhythm. It is also fun and athletic! No dance experience necessary, but if you can bust some moves, this is your class to shine in. You be guided through the poses & transitions to the “beat” of the music, not the breath, like a regular vinyasa class. No yoga experience, or life experience required just a willingness to move (and maybe groove).

​Saturday July 15, ​2:00-3:30pm; Main Ave Studio $22
Align & Flow

This class is one part alignment detail, structure focus and building the postures from the ground up and one part "move with it". The student will, with the use of props and precision, practice the anatomy of the postures. This gives the student knowledge, body awareness and attention to the poses themselves. Then it's "Flow Time". This is a great class for Vinyasa students to learn the structure of postures and great for Alignment students to get their flow on. It combines the best of both yoga worlds.

​Sunday July 16, 10:00am-12:00pm; Main Ave Studio $22
Raven Yoga​

An all-levels yoga class focused on the truth around undesirable behaviors, habits & addictions. Beginner level yoga postures are explored related to the class theme, recovery, and healing. Through sharing, practicing and community support students have space to grow, heal and release unwanted habit patterns. Students have the opportunity to listen to how others have redirected their energy into positive activities. No addiction, current recovery program or yoga experience is required to attend this ‘open to the public’ class. Raven Yoga is not associated with AA, or any other recovery program.

Bio: Nicole Peltier has been teaching her eclectic, musically motivated, creative yoga classes for 17 years to all ages and levels. Nicole, age 47, draws a lively following of teens and young people who are inspired by her young, fresh attitude and easy to follow instruction. Being “mature” also makes Nicole an ideal teacher who inspires students well over thirty to let down their hair and rock without reservation and with a focus on meditative moments that surround us. Nicole’s studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma is The Yoga Room, (www.theyogaroomtulsa.com) where she has been owner and teacher since 2001. She has a wildly passionate heart and her energy is contagious. She is truly inspirational. Nicole specializes in Hip Hop Hatha, LIVE Yoga (yoga to live music), Rock'n Roll Yoga and themed classes such as Glow Yoga, Era classes, and Party Yoga. She focuses on the energy yoga arouses when combined with music. Yoga, for Nicole, is feeling awake, excited and alive on the mat. Her yoga is a time for exploring new places with her body, riding out rhythms with her poses and moving from an inner song and outer vibration with music. Nicole studied at Mount Madonna Center in Santa Cruz in 2000.

Cost: Friday night $18. Saturday & Sunday $22 each or all 3 for $50. Register Online.

Location: Friday night: Florida Rd Studio. Sat & Sun: Yogadurango On Main
