Meditation: Love Yourself Enough to Sit with Yourself
You’ve been doing your asana practice and loving it, and we feel you, but the purpose of the physical practice is to prepare us for meditation. We are offering you the opportunity to dig a little deeper.. Is meditation the next step in your evolution as a serious yoga practitioner?  
In this 3.5 hour experience, commonly known as a half day sit, we will practice 5 different styles of meditation. We will begin with 20 minutes of yoga to unwind from the drive, followed by pranayama and chanting. Each meditation session will be 30 minutes or less, and will be broken up with tea breaks. One will be a walking meditation in the lovely Ozark Mountains.  There will be time in the beginning to reflect on paper and form an intention. There will be time at the end to share your experience if you choose. In keeping with tradition, this half day sit will honor noble silence, which means that once the experience begins, we will be focused inward and won't be talking to each other. 
This experience is brought to you by Johanna Epps and April Lane of Go Inside Yoga. We traveled to India together last summer to study meditation. We are honored to open the weekend in this beautiful way and look forward to meeting you. Please feel free to email us if you have questions.

State of Flow: ON THE MAT
“The best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times… The best moments usually occur if a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.” – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi  When action and awareness merge, one loses self-consciousnesses, entering a state of flow, or dhyana. In this on the mat class, practitioners will: 1.) Be offered unending levels of progressions, both subtle and challenging 2.) Use focusing techniques to heighten awareness and sensitivity 3.) Creatively adapt their practice, getting into “dialogue with the body”. A journal and pen are recommended.

Yin Yoga + Live Music + CBD Tea
Take a break and digest your lunch with us. We will start off with a cup of lovely CBD tea, and hear briefly about the health benefits that CBD products can offer. We will then stretch out for a relaxing session of Yin Yoga. Yin Yoga is a passive style of yoga, where all the poses are done sitting or reclining and each pose is held for about 3-5 minutes. By passive, I mean that we will just put ourselves in the shapes and relax, no need to try.  Nothing to prove. This length of time really gives your body a chance to settle in and reap the benefits. This style of class is perfect for live music. You’ll be transported to a beautiful place listening to the sweet sounds of Tyler’s guitar. Johanna will be gliding around the room like a little massage fairy, doling out neck and shoulder rubs. We feel that this will be a great way to restore yourself in the middle of the day.

As we sip, we will break into discussion groups on topics that will create more freedom and inspiration for your goals and aspirations.  To close, we will end in a 5Rhythm dance to explore different elements of ourselves and connect to our most authentic expression.   The effects of the medicinal plant are extraordinary for creating a space of openness, focus, positive energy and creativity.  "Connecting with others is something I find our world needs more of as depression and addiction continue to rise." At times, humanity can make us afraid to face ourselves. This plant will ease the process of going inward so we can find that space of joy that is forever within us."

Understanding Pranayama
Pranayama workshop
Prana= vital energy, life force
Ayama= extension, expansion

The word pranayama means to expand the dimension of prana. As practitioners, we use breath as a tool to influence the flow of energy through the channels (nadis) of our energy body (pranayama kosha).

Students will gain a basic understanding of what pranayama is, how it works within our bodies, techniques to use for certain occasions and everyday practices to maintain well-being.

Pranayama teaches you to control your impulses, create positive thought patterns, and use the philosophy and psychology of the yoga models to change your behavior patterns. You will sleep better, communicate more effectively, become less agitated, and less compulsive. It helps you understand anxiety and depression and design a practice for you.

This workshop is open to all!
