In this five month program you will be given all the tools and support you need to deepen your yoga practice and to take your practice off your mat and into every aspect of your life. We will meet the first full weekend together, then one Saturday a month for a full day of yoga exploration. For those who wish, there will be optional ongoing work between our times together. We will “geek out” on everything we study – doing a deep, experiential, personalized study of each of our topics. Throughout the program you will be given the information, support and consistent practice needed to make lasting change. Our days together will be deeply nourishing, inspiring and rejuvenating. Each day we meet will be like a mini-retreat.
Our topics will include:
Safe and clear alignment
Mindfulness and Meditation
Ayurveda (yogic nutrition and lifestyle guidelines) Mindfulness and meditation practices
The energy body – including the chakras

Yogic work with Myth and Archetype

I have enjoyed Olynda's classes at my office for a year and a half. She uses a soothing voice, and storytelling approach to explain the yoga philosophy and positions in a very understandable way. Her ability to relate yoga teachings to the management of everyday situations is also useful. I will miss having Olynda’s classes--they effectively melted away the stresses of each week.
