the Weave and the Warp
Scaled out, the evolving practice of hatha yoga is many things. As a beautiful movement ritual, therapeutic conditioning or as sacred practice. What we feel and others often see has been arrived by adopting new pattern. One that shapes us and the tapestry of the world around us.
Scaled in, each yogi finds what they need given time and studentship. This workshop is for new-bees and advanced practitioners alike. Yoga will be explored as a vehicle for self expression, though refinement of craft. Detailed alignment and reinforced therapeutic patterns will change the way you feel, see yourself and (as a work in progress) become living inspiration for those around you. Join us for a inspiring weekend that will get your creative juices flowing!
In this workshop you’ll:
- Explore creative uses of yoga asana and props to deeply increase depth and experience.
- Open new gateways of alignment to increase vibrancy and depth of postures.
- Invite inspiring new ways of keeping your practice fresh.
- Develop deeper understandings of the therapeutic patterns hidden in asana.
- Share space with awesome likeminded practitioners all in support of going to the next level.

Mindful Choice: the Right Tool for the Job
Broad Spectrum Practice (all levels)
In this inaugural evening we set the tone looking at the ageless practice of yoga as more than just calisthenics or physical conditioning. We will filter through the creative lens of an artist with blank canvas and endless possibility. Both terrifying and inspiring we’ll explore where to start. What you end up with or where you find yourself adds mystery and surprise. And who doesn’t love surprises!
Sat Nov 26th: 9:30am – 12:00 pm
Beauty in the Details
Alignment Based Back Bends (all levels)
It’s Saturday morning and we’ll take the time to sharpen our pencils and hone the tools of our trade. How we choose to express our practice can move from many angles but this class is all about how to create a vibrant foundation using technique and leveraging props. Sustainable therapeutic backward bends start with how, when and most importantly why.
Sat Nov 26th: 2:00 – 4:30 pm
Alignment Based Forward Folds + Hip Openers (all levels)
The weave of who and what we are is so incredibly complex and far beyond what we can see in the mirror. The way yogi’s identify the physical matrix is much like a living work of art. A continually shifting cloak that continues to conceal and reveal. In this workshop we will explore Forward Folding + Hip Opening woven to the philosophy of Patanjali’s deeper insights and appropriate mantra.
Sun Nov 27th: 9:30am – 12:00 pm
Alignment Based Balancing + Inversions (all levels)
What’s your Outlook? Forecast? Prognosis? Make no doubt, we often live in a dual world that is in a state of continual change… Not always for the better. In fact this very moment is both paradise and shit-storm is being destroyed and created beneath our feet. This class is not of rainbows, unicorns and new age rhetoric. It’s about showing up, being present and continuing to live the life of a warrior. No winning, no loosing… Showing up for your cause.
Sun Nov 27th: 2:00 – 4:30 pm
Shoulder + Hip Therapeutic Foundations (all levels including injured students*)
In this class the largest four joints in our bodies are explored and addressed with patterns that heal and increase mobility. The tapestry of who we are and what we are able to create and explore with our limbs will be addressed in therapeutic detail with partner work and hands on adjustments.
*For injured students attending, please let us know the extent of your condition 3 days (min) prior to this workshop for better assistance and to determine level of appropriateness.
