Chakras & Energy Flow:
Add a New Dimension to Your Practice

Thursday, September 21, 2023 

7:00-9:00 PM

Just as scientists and doctors discovered the physiological functions of the body, so did the ancient yogis discover the chakras. Join OXCOMYOGA teachers, Joyce Fernandes and Jessica Lohrey for a practical exploration of the chakras.

 

Increased awareness of the internal flow of energy can make your yoga practice more intentional. In this hands-on, interactive workshop students will:

  1. Understand key terms associated with the energetics of yoga practice (e.g. chakra, prana, nadi, granthi, bandha)

  2. Discover the history of the chakra system within the yoga tradition

  3. Learn 6 techniques to work with energy and chakras during yoga practice

  4. Take home a list of postures for working with each chakra

This workshop includes lecture/discussion and practice. Bring your questions and an open mind! Transform your practice. Transform your life.

Intro to Yoga Philosophy

Saturday, October 14, 2023

10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

1:30-5 PM

The Western narrative about Yoga must be re-written if we are to maintain the authenticity of the Yoga tradition. In this course we will examine Yoga's history to understand the evolution of yogic thought and practice over 5000 years. 

The foundation of yoga's philosophy can be found in the Sankhya model. We will explore this fascinating model of the universe, and discover how our modern practices are linked to its metaphysics. In doing so we will also discover the Koshas, Shariras, and the Gunas -- all models to help us better understand the qualities of Nature, including both matter and energy.

If you've wondered how we can make the leap from practicing postures to spiritual awakening, this class is for you!

 

Our studies will include both lecture and a guided practice. 

We will take a 1 hour lunch break from 12:30-1:30 PM. Students may bring lunch or plan to go out for lunch. Please remember we are a meat-free studio.

The Yoga Sutras Illuminated

Sunday, October 15, 2023

8 - 10:30 AM

12:00 - 5:00 PM

The most famous of all yoga texts, the Yoga Sutra has influenced the development of yoga philosophy and meditation for 1000 years, and recently  underwent a major revival with the popularity of Yoga in the West. It is assigned reading in countless yoga teacher trainings, despite the fact that there is no crystal clear and fully actionable translation of this esoteric text. 

A detailed examination of the first sixteen sutras is necessary for illuminating the meaning of the subsequent sutras. These sixteen explain what Yoga is, its goal, its view of the mind/emotions, and what the practice of Yoga consists of, notably relative to discrimination and detachment. 

Whether you are a yoga teacher or a student looking to deepen your understanding of the complete path of yoga, this one day primer on the Yoga Sutras promises to bring a new depth and new levels of understanding to your practice. 

Jessica Lohrey, Director of the Tree of India School of Yoga, has been studying yoga philosophy for over 20 years and teaching courses for yoga teachers for the last 13 years. A copy of the Yoga Sutras will be provided for this study. 

We will take a break from 10:30-12:00 PM. Students may bring lunch or plan to go out for lunch. Please remember we are a meat-free studio.
