Weekend Workshop with Master Teacher Nicki Doane at Truckee, CA with Tahoe Yoga & Wellness

The Details are In!

This weekend workshop will cover a variety of aspects of yoga from asana and pranayama to meditation and chanting. All levels are always welcome. Nicki has a profound ability to serve all different levels of students within a class while keeping the pace steady and the humor flowing!

Friday, September 21st:
Free Your Hips, Free Your Life
5-7pm
It is now an acknowledged fact that tight hips can be a serious risk to your health. The AMA, American Medical Association, has publicly declared that sitting is the new smoking. Yogis of course have known this for a long time and there are many poses to help open the hips safely and effectively. There are four sides to the hips, the front, back, inner and outer which are made up of the quadriceps and psoas ( hip flexors), the hamstrings, external rotators and the inner groins. This class will cover all four sides and share poses to help you maintain your open hips throughout your life. We will also do some poses to open the feet as they are important too. *Mostly asana, active and restorative*

Saturday, September 22nd
Maya Yoga Vinyasa Fusion Flow
9:30am-12:30pm
This is a strong dynamic yoga class that incorporates all aspects of Maya Yoga including asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, prayer, and deep relaxation, to leave you feeling recharged and inspired about your practice. Nicki likes to start the class slowly with poses that support the parasympathetic nervous system and then move slowly into seated chanting and pranayama. From there we will wake the body from the ground up, starting at the feet and moving through the legs, trunk, arms, and head. Sun salutations will be practiced to build internal heat and establish the harmonious flow of breath and movement known as “Vinyasa”. Standing poses are linked with the sun salutations to create the dynamic flow that is both detoxifying and rejuvenating. What happens from there is organic and may include backbends, forward bends, arm balances, inversions or hip openers depending on the students and the energy of the day. The end of the class will bring you back to yourself and leave you feeling more centered and grounded, especially after a long savasana with Nicki reading poetry to you.
*asana, pranayama, chanting, props when needed*

Saturday, September 2nd
Drop in & Let Go: Deep Restorative Yoga
4-6pm
Life is so busy these days and in spite of all the technological gadgets we all have to help us manage our lives, we all experience some level of stress at some point. We often do not take the time to rest and reset our nervous systems and our brains and this can lead to even more stress. Our nervous system has two parts; sympathetic and parasympathetic. Sympathetic is the flight or fight repsonse- the active side , and the Parasympathetic is the more calming quieting side. It is vital to nourish both sides and this class is for the support of the parasympathetic. Please make the time for this class and let Nicki guide you into an experience where you learn to drop in, get quiet inside, and let go into deep relaxation. It is truly an art to be able to make the space and time for self care and you deserve it. This class is restorative in nature with bolsters and props and Nicki’s reading of the ancient Yoga myths.
*asana, pranayama, restorative*

Sunday , September 23rd
With Faith Comes Courage: A Yoga Practice to Build Confidence & Strength
9:30am-12:30pm
Two of the foundational pillars of a consistent yoga practice are Shraddha - Faith , and Virya - Courage. The only way these can be established is through steady consistent personal practice. What happens on the mat in yoga should actually not stay on the mat but should follow us out the door and into our lives where we need it most. Yoga is a life support system and the poses are transformational tools that can touch us deeply both at a soul level and as a practical means of keeping our bodies fit and healthy. We need yoga in these hectic stressful lives that we lead. This class will be a combination of both active and restorative asana. We will be more active in the first half of the class to open the body and mind and to get the breath flowing and the heart beating and establish Faith in the efficacy of the practice. Nicki will teach an engaged asana class that includes standing poses and hip openers, pranayama, and some backbends and twists. The second half of the class will be more reflective in nature and slower. Restorative and supported poses will take you from the active side of the practice into the calming quieting side of yoga. Courage is having the strength to listen and speak from the heart and these softer poses will give you the opportunity to get in touch with what you’re feeling on the inside. Slowly you just may find what you’re looking for. *Active and restorative asana, pranayama, props used for sure*

Looking to spend a week relaxing in the south of Italy, doing yoga, eating amazing food, and enjoying the “Bella Vita” (the beautiful life) that the Mediterranean is so known for?

The rest of the day can be spent as you like; eating, napping, exploring, bike-riding, relaxing by the pool, hiking, or just lying around and reading a great book. Maybe you want to take a technology break and use this time to connect with real people doing real things. There is something special about living together as a group for a week, practicing yoga, sharing food, talking, and drinking wine together.  This yoga retreat is a way to reconnect not only with yourself but with your practice again. Sometimes life gets so busy that we don’t make time for the important things in life. Use this retreat to get back into your practice and be inspired to continue once you get back home.

Passport to Your Core - A Yoga Practice to Guide You into Yourself While Turning Yourself Upside Down
Saturday, Nov 3, 2018
9:00 am - 11:30 am

What is Yoga? If we look at the literal meaning of the Sanskrit word, it means to yoke or to bring together. Real yoga is about calming the mind with all its fluctuations and agitations. Most of our suffering and fears as human beings is between our ears, right in the middle of our consciousness. Of course there is also plenty of suffering and pain that we experience in our physical and emotional bodies as well. The poses of yoga are great because they not only lengthen and strengthen the muscles in our body but they offer us key insights into the workings of our minds. The poses reveal what is already there. It is a beautiful mystery how the poses become keys that unlock deep hidden parts of ourselves, parts that we have kept locked way and that we repress. It is the dark areas of our consciousness that have so much to teach us about ourselves. Maya Yoga teaches a way of practicing yoga that is as much about aligning the physical body as it is about learning how to love yourself more everyday.

This class will use asana and pranayama to examine the mind body connection more deeply. The focus will be on the group of poses known as the Inversions - the upside down poses. Through an intelligent sequence of poses we will practice Handstands at the wall whether you are a pro already or a complete novice. Forearm balance will be done at the wall as well and headstand and shoulderstand will be introduced and shared as well. We will complete the class with the most restful pose, Viparita karani, legs up against the wall.

This class will be taught in a supportive compassionate environment with the focus on the process of yoga and not necessarily on the final pose. All are welcome!
*asana, pranayama, some partner work, props used for sure* 


The Citti Vrittis - Exploring Ancient Yogic Thoughts on the Root Causes of an Afflicted Mind
Saturday, Nov 3, 2018
1:00pm-3:30pm


One of the most important books on Yoga Psychology is the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Patanjali is believed to be an avatar of Lord Vishnu who came to earth to share both Sanskrit and the teaching of yoga with humanity in an effort to uplift them and offer guidance to their spiritual journey. These teachings are still highly relevant today and in this class we will look at the “Vrittis” which are the fluctuations and agitations of the mind. We all have them and they can lead to an unstable mind and a distorted perception of reality. We will cover the five vrittis that are said to be painful and the five vrittis that are said to be seemingly non painful. There will be discussion of the vrittis and how they affect our daily lives and we will also chant them together in the call and response style known as kirtan.

*mostly discussion with some chanting* 

Drop In and Let Go - Deep Restorative Yoga
Saturday, Nov 3, 2018

Embracing the Unknown - Backward Bending Postures
Sunday, Nov 4, 2018
9:00am - 11:30am


Some of the most important and effective yoga poses are the ones that extend the spine and bring freedom to the back. They of course are known as backbends and many people can be intimidated by them. Allow Nicki to lead you through a safe and effective yoga practice that will prepare you for the backward bending poses very well. Through Sun Salutations, standing poses and lunges, your body will be ready to do backbends like you’ve never done them before. Some poses that will be included, but not limited to, are standing back arch, salabhasana, danurasana, setu bandha sarvangasana, and urdhva dhanurasana. If needed, Nicki has an intelligent way of working with the props so they both support and propel you deeper into the pose in a safe way. This class will end with twisting postures to relieve the spine and a deep restful savasana to realign your body and mind.
*asana, pranayama, props when needed*

Weekend Workshop at Vancouver, CA with Semperviva Yoga

Maya Yoga Workshops – Merging of The Mind & Body With Nicki Doane

This workshop will address the needs and mechanics of the physical body as well as our psychology by weaving the deep psychological teachings of the yoga sutras into the asana practice to show that we cannot separate the mind and body, ever.  There will be attention placed on how to do the postures safely with clear alignment directions while observing how the mind reacts to them. We are spiritual beings having a human experience, not the other way around. It is comforting to know that we are all in this together as human beings and that we are not alone. We are more similar than we are different.

Maya Yoga is a style of yoga that honors both the body and the mind, fusing the two seamlessly into one and helping us lead more productive full lives.

Weekend Workshop in Portland, OR with Yoga Pearl

The Buddha said that the first noble truth is that “In life there is suffering.” Thankfully, the second noble truth he taught says that there is a way out of the suffering- through spiritual practice. According to Patanjali, the source of most of our suffering is in our mind. The sutras tell us that yoga is the path to Self Realization, which, I believe, is the practice of  getting to know yourself better and the practice of loving ourselves more.  

Our weekend together will address the needs and mechanics of the physical body as well as our psychology by weaving the deep psychological teachings of the yoga sutras into the asana practice to show that we cannot separate the mind and body, ever. The poses have an uncanny ability to delve deeply into our psyche and we all react to them differently.  Some poses we love and some poses we do not, but is getting through the difficult stuff that makes us stronger and more resilient in our lives. There will be attention placed on how to do the postures safely with clear alignment directions while observing how the mind reacts to them. We are spiritual beings having a human experience, not the other way around. It is comforting to know that we are all in this together as human beings and that we are not alone. We are more similar than we are different.

Back to School Asana Intensive at Maya Yoga on Maui

Join Nicki for an inspired week of yoga at home on Maui.  Many of us let our yoga practice slide in the summer as we spend more time outside and playing.  September has a way of easing us back into work/school mode and this week's intensive is designed to do the same.  Nicki and Maya Yoga are known for teaching students and not just postures.  Every intensive's direction is determined by the students who show up. Having three hours to practice gives plenty of time for a slow intelligent start to the class and allows ample time for asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, and the best pose of all, Savasana!

These asana intensives are a great way to kick start your practice or get re-inspired if you need it. Since the workshop is in the morning from 8-11am, it is a great way to combine your yoga practice with a week long vacation on Maui! 

Remember Kama'ainas get special pricing ...
