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.

An amazing journey involving so much more than just yoga training - a full experience for the mind , body and soul . Helping to Inspire the motivation, strength and passions we all have from deep within to conquer the battles we create for ourselves and instead change our mindset and choose to make our dreams a reality . A valuable experience lead by an extremely educated teacher , along with exceptional assistants .
Unbelievable life changing 200 hr. Training at the Ewam Garden. Dive deep into the Philosophy of Yoga and its rich history. Pranayama, Bandhas, Meditation and Anatomy are covered in a way that gives you the tools not only to instruct a well-developed Yoga class but to enrich and expand your home practice both on and off the mat. I am grateful for the Personal and Professional Development that I received; feedback was effective though sometimes hard to hear. KISS (Keep - Integrate - Stop - Start) was a useful and effective tool for feedback. Selena and her team of instructors (Brandon, Cami and others) give it their all. The wealth of knowledge and experience this team has is refreshing. They walk the walk and talk the talk. Ewam Garden is the perfect location for this training. Mountain views, sheep and cows grazing in the fields surround the Garden of 1000 Buddhas. Yes, there are 1000 Buddhas. I highly recommend this training if you are looking to build a home practice that rocks and be an awesome instructor.

Learned a lot, excited to learn more!

The word I keep using is life-changing. The program was incredibly informative, transformative, challenging, fun and beautiful.
It was a life-changing experience with amazing women from all over the world (okay Canada, US, and Europe ;)) and especially amazing teacher who taught us not only the yoga practice but also important things for everyday life. The accommodation was very nice, super clean and super helpful and friendly personal and we had healthy yummy food ;) Selena is one of the most inspiring women I have ever met. She taught us a lot about anatomy (in a way everybody can understand and practice it), and she brought us to a state where we could actually enjoy a meditation. She is like a living encyclopedia, no need for google anymore when you need something to know about Yoga History. Full of love kindness and knowledge of philosophy (real good stories about the Indian Gods ;)) and life in general. If you are looking for a high-class​ yoga teacher training, for a place where you can reflect and learn about, then this is the place! I will definitely come back here if I will do my 300-hours advanced teacher training in the next couple of years!
