About this trip

Presence & Power is a workshop...training...mini-retreat, designed to lead you into self-inquiry and to provide you with practical practices you can employ at home, every day. 

Yoga is a technique and science. And like baking a cake you need the right recipe, the right techniques, and the right ingredients if you're going to make the best damn cake of your life. 

Presence & Power will provide you with the skills to have a meaningful, simple home asana, pranayama, meditation and mantra practice that will truly help you to better navigate every area of your life. 

Yoga has the power to touch far more than your body and we can depend on the teachings of the ancient ones for the pathways to our Highest. 

You will learn how to leverage your present conditions and your past to step into and ride the wave of your potential. How to sequence for the time of day, your present state, and for what you hope to accomplish. 

If you are a teacher, you will learn powerful practices to offer your students, but more importantly you will receive practices that you can hold hidden, just for you, a must for teachers. 

Why Presence & Power? 

Each of us is a noble idea with a noble cause and potentiality that is waiting to emerge. Our soul’s long to fulfill their purpose. These latent qualities within us, our hidden abilities are beckoning to be called forth. So why do we stray for our potential? Why do we get stuck? So often we’re pulled into our habituations, our comforts, our developed nature. But yoga offers us an invitation to leave the adventure-less land of comfort, to stop being habitual and to get intentional. To meet our life’s circumstances with skill and technique and to open up to our Highest-intended possibilities. We can leverage our strengths, strengthen our liabilities and stay in conversation between what lies in our present vision and the possibilities of our imagination. 

Potential is a seed and it requires proper nourishment and proper soil to grow. It requires that we awaken to our ingrained patterns so that we can turn and shift the direction of change to for the good. Staying on the frontier of what is unknown anchored in what we do know. And always being wiling to supplant our old knowledge of our self with new knowledge of the Self. 

All the material of your life is a means to achieving potential. It’s all in how you choose to work with it. Your past can be an emotional burden or it can be a foundation to propel you forward. You choose. 

Start approaching every day with curiosity. Do the things you must do with joy, do them skillfully, refine and strengthen the parts of yourself that are weak. Reactive? Practice the pause till you’re brilliant at it. Too soft? Hold your boundary in even the smallest ways. Use it all to RISE. 

There is no plan B. Universe has a plan for you and all of creation is eagerly awaiting your emergence. 

Let Presence & Power be another tool in your kit to help best direct parinmavada (inevitable change) for your benefit. 

From my heart to yours,

Selena 

Your Organizer

Selena Garefino began practicing yoga when she was 13 years old. Yoga has been and continues to be for Selena, a vehicle for learning to shift from habitual emotional and behavior tendencies towards serving highest possibility. Selena completed her first vinyasa training with Core Power Yoga. She went on to study with Sarah Powers, Melina Meza, Anne Phyfe, Nicolai Bachman, Elena Brower, Douglas Brooks, Rod Stryker, and Noah Mazé. She has studied Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Pre-natal and Postpartum Yoga, Vinyasa, and Hatha Yoga. Selena is dedicated to teaching movement through artful alignment to support her students on and off of their mats. Her classes offer yoga and meditation as a mechanism to shift the way we offer ourselves in all aspects of our lives and as a tool for granting profound healing in our bodies, our hearts, and ultimately our relationships. Selena is a PhD Candidate in South Asian Anthropology. And holds an MPH in International Health.

Selena is steeped in knowledge, compassion, and the art of teaching. I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to deepen their practice and their way of thinking.

Every training I feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information presented wondering if I'm going to retain any of it. The next class I teach though, I feel more confident, more present. After every training I feel like I have more to offer my students. That's a feeling you can't buy.

I want to personally thank Selena Garefino for providing an amazing immersive experience. I booked this program not knowing what was involved, nor expecting to ever teach a yoga class, my goal was to grow my personal home practice. Thank you for helping me do that, challenging my comfort zones, and opening my eyes to so much more. I still don't know if I will ever teach a yoga class, but I do know without a doubt that the option is now well within reach. I feel I have only scratched the surface of my yoga journey, so I definitely will be pursuing additional yoga trainings and retreats, as well as different schools of yoga moving forward. On my personal journey of knowledge and self exploration I am beyond grateful to have crossed paths with Selena Garefino and for the opportunity to learn from her and Hali Love. I truly feel blessed to have met both of these amazing women and to have shared this unique experience with a limitless group of women from all over the world.
It was a great training as usual Selena delivered. Space we practiced was lovely. Thanks
Such a great experience. I gained so much knowledge and walked away with tools that I can easily apply in my day to day life and practice. Thank you for time, energy and space.
