Join SYC as we do a 21 day cleanse as a community that will help you to shed any heaviness and have you feeling light and reenergized for the remainder of your summer. The cleanse is based on a partial food fast our fellow SYC instructor, Crystal Milana, has done for several years called the Daniel Fast. The fast consists of eating all fresh non-processed foods to give your body a kick start into eating cleaner and more fresh to get out of the habit of eating the comfort foods we all know to enjoy.

There are two different options in the fast depending on how far you want to take it. We will support and encourage each other through social media. We encourage you to keep a food journal to help you stay on track and share recipes with the community.

As you sign up for the fast SYC will send you the two different options. This fast is applicable to anyone looking to lighten up and shine from the inside out! It is not a cleanse where you can only eat raw foods, drink certain juices etc. You will find yourself being able to eat a variety of foods from fruits to vegetables, legumes, grains, almond milk and even some meats (depending on what option it is you choose).

Cleanse starts on July 19th
Cleanse: July 19th – August 9th
 
This is where we can meet together and have discussion on why we are doing the cleanse, tools to help you through the cleanse and get different recipes and meal ideas. We will open with a meet and greet, then a short meditation to clear our minds. Please bring your journal with you, as well as an open heart and mind for this journey together.

 Learn to lead, teach and inspire others.

An empowering process for those wanting to teach yoga in your community and world. Are you a current yoga teacher looking to master your skills, or a yoga student seeking to delve deeper in your practice? Our weeklong trainings are a great opportunity to capture these goals. This program composes the first part of 200hour teacher training.

The goal of this week is “Establishing power for yourself and others.” You will be introduced to the foundations of assisting/adjusting, and be exposed to understanding the anatomy of yoga postures and movement of the body. You will learn the foundations of power yoga through Baron Baptiste’s “Journey into Power” sequence. Discussions on the Yoga Sutras and philosophy of the Sid Yoga “Empowerment and Beyond” sequence will teach students about the depth and versatility of practicing yoga. You will also learn how to translate these timeless teachings into your current classroom experience. You will be introduced to leading a class by receiving voice coaching, and learning sequencing basics. A unique aspect of this training is the amount of time spent in practicing your teaching skills through live teaching sessions to your peers. Receive feedback throughout the program and grow.
This weeklong session is an inward journey that brings the focus to the internal by recognizing where we hold back, and where we can break through.

At the end of the day one participant will walk away with a portion of the proceeds to begin to create their dream.

How Living the Dream came to be: 

Sid began Living The Dream as a Collegiate Football Coach.  To further the dream he needed to find a way to heal his body from a fused ankle do to many sports injuries, and release his asthma he had from childhood.  Sid began to see that a dream was possible through yoga and healed in every way.  As a football coach be began to teach yoga to his football team and still knew there was more to it.  Over 20 years of coaching football, teaching yoga and inspiring others Sid found his way and doors began to fly open.  lululemon had come to the first “Living The Dream” in Nashville, TN.  lululemon was made aware of Sid’s goal of traveling the world to spread peace, through their ambassador goal bomb program.  In January of 2014 lululemon helped Sid begin this dream.  This has resulted in the program today and Sid is on a mission to help everyone Live The Dream they desire.

For Who?

We all have an operating system and in many cases it has limited our connection to our infinite power. We have come into this mode of operation from the fear of losing love in some way. By learning how to shift our operating system we are able to see our world from a new perspective. As we land in this new perspective we are then able to live an amazing life from a deeper state of love.

Life Training is exactly that – a training for all people. Whether you are a brother, a sister, a mother, a father, a yogi, an athlete, a doctor, a clerk or any other label you may carry this is the space for you. A yoga practice is not required! Yoga is not involved in this Life Training, so please get your practice in before or after. This is a study group that will help you dive deep into yourself to uncover hidden layers holding you back from living the life you wish to lead. Life Training is lead by Sid McNairy. Sid is the owner, founder and operator of Sid Yoga Center in Towson, Maryland and the author of Walking with Love and Empowerment and Beyond. Sid has helped thousands and thousands before you see this perspective and he can help you, too. Life the life you deserve to live!

In this module of advanced teacher training the emphasis is on awakening a deeper connection to spirit, by gaining access to a spiritual practice of your own accord. Meditation is one of the primary focuses of The Spirit of Yoga Module. You will dive into four layers of this practice and deepen your connection to how spirit is moving through your body.

Influenced by his Native American culture, Sid McNairy has brought the foundations of the First Nations people into his teacher trainings. These traditions and his time with Grandmother Morningstar have been an integral part of who Sid is today. It is his desire to share these experiences with yoga teachers and enhance their connection to spirit. Part of this week includes Inner Quest which is an opportunity for you to commune with nature. You will head onto Grandmother Morningstar’s land and experience Native American culture and the oneness of all.

Additional curriculum includes advanced sequencing, self discovery, posture clinics, and Sid McNairy’s Breathwork.

Shift your being as you connect to the Spirit of Yoga!

There are a number of amazing restaurants and food options near Sid Yoga Center, right in the heart of Towson’s city. Zias Cafe, San Sushi Too/Thai One On, 7 West Bistro Grille and Indian Cuisine are within walking distance and are highly recommended. Traders Joes and Starbucks are also within walking distance. Towson has a Fresh Market (comparable to Whole Foods) and is only a 1/2 mile away. Atwater’s cafe and MOM’s organic market are about a 5 minute drive. A full operating grocery store, Safeway, is within 3/4 mile.
Weather & Clothing
 Please review the weather forecast before attending your training sessions to know what to pack and wear. All training hours will be indoors. During program, plan to wear sportswear acceptable for practicing yoga (wicking material, no cotton) and bring layers to cover up during seated discussion or partner work. There are often 1-2 yoga asana practices throughout the day, so we recommend bringing at least two changes of yoga clothes.
Accommodations
The Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel and The Towson University Marriott Conference Hotel are two great nearby lodging options. Other affordable options in Towson are Comfort Inn and Best Western. Both are located within a 1/2 mile of the studio. The Holiday Inn in Timonium is 5 miles away (estimated travel time is 10 minutes). Embassy suites in Hunt Valley is a 12 minute drive. Sid Yoga does not have a group rate set up at a specific hotel, we find that our participants tend to prefer to make their own arrangements. At your request and consent, we will inform you of other out-of-town participants with whom you can contact and discuss sharing rooms.
