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.

Nicki - Maya Yoga 100HR Yoga Alliance TT

FOUNDATIONAL TEACHER TRAINING (100 HOUR MODULE)

This foundational training taught by Nicki Doane will introduce the key concepts of Maya Yoga and is applied towards a  200 hour Yoga Alliance certification.  One of the most important ingredients in being a great yoga teacher is having a personal yoga practice which in Sanskrit is called “sadhana”.  In this training we will begin to explore “svadhyaya”- the study of the self, what that entails and how to develop a personal practice.  As yoga is not only a physical practice,  some yoga philosophy and psychology will be introduced to help bridge the connection between the body and the mind.  Maya yoga is about honoring and serving individual students and helping mentor teachers that are deeply interested in helping people through the art and science of yoga.

Some topics covered in this training include: Asanas ( postures), Pranayama ( breathing techniques), Bandhas( subtle body energy tools), Seeing and Understanding Bodies, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Anatomy, Modifications of poses, Chanting, Sequencing, and Meditation.

Cost: $1500

VINO VINYASA : A MAYA YOGA RETREAT WITH NICKI DOANE

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 pace of life is slower in Italy, so it’s the perfect place to slow down and savor this incredible yoga retreat. Join Nicki Doane in Puglia Italia for a week of relaxing, inspiring, and fun yoga classes. The schedule of the retreat will be relaxed with classes in the morning and late afternoon. 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.

What's Included:

  • 7 Nights Accommodations 
  • 3 Whole Foods Meals Each Day
  • Round-Trip Group Transport to/from the Airport
  • Daily Yoga Practices

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 ...
