The Magic of Sacred Story w/ John de KadtSat Aug 8th, 7-8:30pm, $25
For all of human history we have been sharing in the oral tradition of storytelling. It was the main vehicle for humans to impart wisdom, entertain, teach and retain information from generation to generation. In the past 100 years this enchanting, educational & heart warming art has been all but lost on modern culture. Come join us for a mesmerizing evening of wisdom stories and drumming with world traveling percussionist, poet and storyteller John de Kadt. While this event is oriented towards adults, it is certainly also a familyfriendly magical journey for all kids above the age of ten.
John de Kadt is an acclaimed percussionist, poet, and storyteller who travels internationally performing his powerful and unique blend of spoken word and music.
Intro to Aerial YogaSun Aug 23th, 1-3:30pm, $30
Explore Integrative Aerial Yoga! A playful, energizing practice that leaves you feeling deeply relaxed, lengthened, integrated and free. This holistic system incorporates vinyasa yoga and aerial circus conditioning with principles of functional movement and Fascial Fitness to enhance breath, movement, and balance on the mat and through life. Using a low-hanging fabric swing, IAY supports intentional and efficient movement through space, giving rise to greater kinesthetic awareness. Grounded in yoga flows that improve everyday posture and body mechanics, IAY accesses deep stabilizing muscles that allow the body to find its own organic alignment.
In this workshop we'll focus on the basics of aerial yoga. We'll build a strong and grounding foundation from which we'll explore inversions, greater height, and advance our sequences.
Note: For your comfort, it is strongly recommended that you wear pants that are at least calf-length.
The Seat of A Teacher: Cont.Ed. w/ Ame WrenSelect Fridays: Sep 25, 2015 - Mar 18, 2016
As anyone who has been through a 200-hr program knows, much of what you learn doesn't get fully digested. We study, we pay attention and then despite our best efforts, 6 months later we find ourselves grasping for words to explain internal rotation or the concept of santosha. This 6-month program is designed for those who can relate. Through group and individual study, you will receive a thorough review of the basic concepts of yoga (limbs---both esoteric and anatomical), how to weave a class effectively, living like a yoga teacher and ways to have an impact (moving from instructor to teacher). Because much of what you learn is best digested through experiential learning, there will also be some group teaching exercises and opportunities for feedback.
Topics covered will include but not be limited to:
- Asana alignment & architecture
- Learning to see and touch your students*
- Speaking & sequencing well
- Differentiating yourself from the pack
- Principles and maintenance of svadhyaya (self-study)
Fridays from 10am-630pm
- Sept 25, Oct 23, Nov 13, Dec 4 2015
- Jan 22, Feb 26, March 18 2016
Additional time commitments:

- Observation of 2 of Ame's all-levels classes
- 2 brief individual check-ins (via skype/facetime or in-person if schedules allow)
*This program is complimentary to Ame's popular Learning to See program and an excellent way to warm up for the Boston Yoga School 500-hr program (beginning fall 2016).
