You have moved through the layers of discovering where you have been operating. Now is the moment to discover what is creating it all. This is the step you have been waiting for to allow your life to move forward – empowered and free to be you in every way!

Our Life Training series is designed to bring your awareness to your personal operating system: the beliefs, rules, and perspectives that guide your actions and emotions.  Once you are aware of the parameters you’ve confined yourself to, you can begin to move outside of them to create your best life! This is truly a training for all people – you do not even have to do yoga! Yoga is not a component in this series, 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 before you see this perspective, and he can help you, too. Live the life you deserve to live! Register now.

Influenced by his Native American heritage, Sid has brought the foundations of the First Nations people into his 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 others and enhance their connection to spirit. This weekend includes Inner Quest, a Native American tradition, at Grandmother Morningstar’s land. The clearing you create in this training will allow you to  experience the oneness of all things as you commune with nature.

Release your inner blocks.

Healing Breathwork is a tool for healing, and clearing old patterns within one’s 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 a deeper 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: $30 pre-register / $40 day of the workshop
