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,
