Release your inner blocks

Healing Breathwork is a tool for healing, and clearing old patterns within ones body. Learn how to use your breath for emotional release, mental clarity, and physical freedom.

Sid’s Healing Breathwork is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, transpersonal discovery, and spiritual practice. The process itself uses very simple means: it combines natural baby’s breathing with evocative music in a comfortable setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to tap into deeper a consciousness.

This experience is appropriate for everyone and will leave you with clarity, inner peace and connection to yourself.
Sid McNairy will be your lead guide for this session, who has countless hours studying Holotropic and transgressional breathwork under the direct supervision and teachings of Grandmother Morningstar, who was a direct student of founder of holotropic breathwork Stanley Grof’s for years.

Our program is a Yoga Alliance 200hr Registered Yoga School.

website for host studio: http://glow-yoga.com

Phase II curriculum focus is on voice coaching, class sequencing, methodology, principles of teaching, business of yoga, establishing your power and authenticity as a teacher, and how to teach to all levels. During this week you will have several opportunities to teach live to your peers and program leaders, while receiving feedback full in growth. After completing Phase II, you will be ready to lead others and teach yoga to various levels.

Students will immerse more deeply into assisting techniques, and apply practical anatomy methods into the class room by understanding the differences within the body and how it relates to yoga. Philosophy will be discussed related to ancient yoga texts, and how these philosophical understandings can translate into classroom yoga teaching. The sequence training will be completed with mastering how to teach an inspiring all-levels class. As the theme of our trainings is “Live it to Give it”, we will use methods of Matrika yoga to recognize the reflections we carry, and empower ourselves to lead the change we wish to see.

Here at Sid Yoga we understand that you have to “Live It To Give It!” Get ready to be empowered and open up to going beyond! We look forward to walking every step along the way with you! Peace.

TRAVEL INFORMATION

Parking

Located conveniently in a lot at the studio site.
Eateries and Groceries

There are a number of amazing restaurants and food options in the Gulf Shores area and we recommend you eat local (seafood ofcourse)! For groceries there are several small markets (Blalocks, Fresh Market, Billy’s open air seafood market) and large grocery stores including Publix, Walmart and Target within 5 to 10 miles of the studio.. 

Weather & Clothing

The weather is typically mild in December on the Gulf Coast but can get chilly. 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

We recommend staying in a condominium or beach house on the lagoon, bay or gulf while you are here. Vrbo.comkaiserrealty.com and meyerre.com are great booking sites to find the perfect home away from home for your stay. The studio is located in the heart of Gulf Shores so best areas to stay are in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. There are a few hotels in town as well. 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, booking a group house.

Suggested Airport

Pensacola International Airport (PNS)
or
Mobile Regional Airport
