Join guest teacher Rebecca Wildbear, E-RYT-500, MS for a deep inward journey into the playfulness of your body and the imagery of your soul. 

There is some kiss we want

with our whole lives,

the touch of spirit on the body.   -Rumi 

            Do you long to feel more alive?  Are the mysteries of your soul calling? Your soul is the essence of who you are and your unique purpose for being here.  Wild Yoga, one practice for soul encounter, encourages a profound listening to body and imagination.

            Wild Yoga begins with a 90-minute asana practice that welcomes all levels of physical ability and encourages your movements to follow the wisdom of your body.   Poetry, music, and imagery bring nature into the practice.  This experience will end with a 30-minute deep imagination journey to connect you with your inner world.  Surrender to what arises, root yourself in relationship with the natural world, and discover and embody your truest self. 

A soul guide, somatic psychotherapist and wilderness guide since 1997, Rebecca focuses her private practice on supporting others to discover their truest gifts through dreamwork, deep imagination, and Hakomi.  Rebecca leads vision quests and other programs with Animas Valley Institute and is on the faculty of Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica.  She is also the creator of Wild Yoga, aligning us with soul and the evolving Earth.

There is an inner wisdom that has long been lost. Not only has it been long lost but when it pokes its head into our awareness we have all learned to shun it, deny it, and to discount it. That inner wisdom is not a book, as our present intellect would have us believe. It is not a bank of knowledge, or a storehouse of formulas. It is a living dimension of our very selves, and in its livingness it is in the moment, so that in order for us to tap that ancient deep inner wisdom we must engage it directly in its aliveness, we must be willing to be present with it on its terms, we must be willing to let it teach us its language rather than demanding that it speak in our own.  E. S. Gallegos

Yoga of Running with Edie Cimino, Saturday, Nov. 7, POSTPONED

Running burns off the dead wood in the body and puts your breath right in your face.  There is so much opportunity for dharana, or concentration, when muscles contract and strengthen and carry the weight.  In yoga, muscles are shored up, more controlled, isometric, and deliberate movement. I have enjoyed the application of meditative practices [...]
