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.

Space is limited. Sign up today!

Cost: $35 pre-register / $45 day of the workshop

Teacher, performer, counter-cultural icon, lover of God:
Bhagavan Das is as rich and manifold as Existence itself

Bhagavan Das is one of the last living cultural icons of the 60′s. As Ram Das’s mentor (author of Be Here Now) he ushered in the New Age Spiritual Movement being the first Kirtan Artist in America. His groundbreaking album “Ah” (1971), produced by Jimi Hendrix’s manager Michael Jeffrey, was the first World Music album from Electric Ladyland. Bhagavan Das has also toured with Allen Ginsberg, opened for the Grateful Dead and sang with Bob Dylan.

 

Bhagavan Das’s rare and sacred offering to this world is like a singing
open heart heralding the Guru’s Grace through the vehicle of Sound.

Create healing. 

with Sudevi Linda Kramer M.A., L.M.T.
Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga is traditionally performed on a large comfortable cotton futon floor mat which gives the receiver both comfort and full-body support. Working on the floor also allows the therapist to move freely around and above the client, making for effective use of the therapist’s bodyweight and mechanics. The therapist can also work with the receiver in a variety of positions, including prone, supine, side-lying, and seated.
In a Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga session you will wear loose-fitting or stretchy clothing that allows your body to move.No oils are needed. The techniques used work far beneath the surface of the body, effecting the deeper layers of the muscles and skeleton.
After the completion of this two-day Thai Yoga Bodywork course, participants will have the foundation for giving a classic 90-minute session. We will work in supine, prone, side-lying, and seated asanas. All participants will receive hands-on assistance, as well as a course manual to take home.

Learn: Beautiful sequences of exotic stretches and Thai Bodywork techniques, also known as assisted Yoga. Thai Bodywork is marma therapy and synthesizes acupressure, rhythmic compressions, ancient breathing arts and meditation to produce profound rest and rejuvenation. Mantras for the marmas and chakras will also be included.

Study: A 3000-year old traditional Southeast Asian Folk Art, which creates inspired tranquility and radiant whole health.

Experience: Simple procedures to assist in rapidly eliminating dis-ease, both physical and emotional.

Enjoy: Strengthened vitality through bhandas, pranayamas, and meditation techniques for personal focus and effect.

Discover: How to balance and harmonize Shakti/Chi to enhance immune system and hormonal health, balance mental energy, and stimulate higher levels of consciousness.

Sudevi Linda Kramer is a highly sought-after Vedic Conservatory certified teacher of Thai-Yoga Bodywork, studying in Thailand and training closely with Mukti Michael Buck. She is certified in Integral and Jivamukti Yoga and was sudevi kramer thai yoga therapygraced by Sri Swami Satchidananda and Yoga masters Sharon Gannon and David Life. Sudevi was inducted into the World Massage Hall of Fame at Berea College in June 2010. Sudevi serves as the Yoga Director for the Vedic Conservatory.

“Sudevi is the real deal. Her presence initiates a magical spiritual journey intermingled with true rejuvenation and cellular healing. Her classes hold a special light that leave you feeling new again. Sudevi’s hand’s-on instruction is simple and complete — you get home and you can actually give a session without the DVD, and even though you are wowed by her mastery – you are even more wowed that you can do it too. She takes the confusion out of sequencing. I take her classes as often as I can— even after I’ve met my ce requirements — and some block, some something is always lifted and the world seems brighter.” ~Shawn M. Brinza, LMT, aka “The Massage Gypsy.”

“Sudevi’s presence is amazing and I would recommend taking any and every form of yogic study with her. Her love of yoga, meditation, and mantra are a big part of this work. I was able to apply the principles and produce the work for a change! Some teachers are razzle dazzle and you have to keep coming back to “Get it.”Sudevi is a born teacher, and the art is pranically transmitted and skillfully imparted. She has a calming presence and a relaxed easy manner. The peace I experienced is now part of my life and practices. ~Tana Trichel, Monroe, LA, Yoga Student.
