Workshops/Retreats

Workshops

Workshops are an opportunity to deepen an aspect of your practice with minimal interruption to your daily life.

YOGA CAMP

March 25  – April 10, 6:15–7:20am

Adults should get to go to camp too! Here’s your opportunity for daily yoga camp without disruption to your regular daily life.

Here’s how it will work: i will develop a sequence for the class. I will teach it at the beginning of camp and give you a written copy of the sequence complete with stick figures. After the first two classes you will practice at your own pacing using the printed copy. 

Each day when you arrive you can let me know where in the sequence you would like support/tips. I will work with you individually when you reach that point in the sequence.

This is an amazing opportunity for you to practice daily and to receive individual attention, which will support you in developing your practice.  You will see what you can achieve in a short period of time with repeated practice. You will also get to enjoy the many benefits of a devoted daily practice.

$150 (includes all 10 sessions)

SUTRA STUDY

Coming Soon. Please contact Kim to be placed on waitlist to be notified. kim@ioystudio.com

The Yoga Sutras are 196 aphorisms divided into four books. They are considered the authoritative text on Classical Yoga.

This text enjoys wide applicability even to our modern lives. The Sutras provide a fresh means of looking at our humanity as well as tools for living our best lives.

The Sutras are divided into four chapters, each with its own theme. Each sutra or thread is multi-layered in meaning.  In our monthly meetings we will dive into the Sanskrit and English translations of the sutras and explore the nuances of meaning.

You will have monthly reading assignments. Once registered you’ll be advised which translation of the sutras to purchase.

$35 for one session or $125 for four.
