A 2.5-hour Introduction to Meridian Yoga Therapy (MYT), a powerful healing method. We will start with a brief intro to the underlying philosophy of MYT, energy pathways in the body, how blockages might occur, and how this method can address the blockages that lead to physical, emotional and spiritual pain. You will learn and practice a Self-treatment sequence that can help deepen your yoga practice (asana, pranayama and meditation). We will discuss the basics of touch and how to sense different layers of the body. Finally, you will give and receive a 20-min sequence of techniques with a partner. In this session, we will be focusing on the front body and abdomen. Come alone or bring a friend. Also learn about our certification programs and get a discount for registration!

What is Meridian Yoga Therapy (MYT)?

In modern times, much of our physical pain comes from problems in the mind and emotions. The ancient philosophies like Yoga and Chinese medicine are sophisticated systems that offer maps of the body, mind and soul, a different kind of anatomy that acknowledges the physical as well as the emotional. Even in modern culture, the heart is known not only as an organ that pumps the blood, but also as the source of love and compassion, connection to divine and other. The techniques of these two systems were designed as both physical medicine and tools for spiritual development.

MYT is a modern synthesis of these two ancient systems. MYT techniques work in the same way that Yoga asana works — relying on the connection between the physical, emotional, and spiritual. Like Yoga asana, MYT uses physical methods to ease the flow of energy through the subtle channels and release muscle tension, joint pain, headaches, digestive issues, anxiety, depression, etc.

Meridian Yoga Therapy is a healing modality that can be applied to self or others. This system is based on the 8-limbed Yogic principles and informed by the traditional Chinese Medicine meridian system of points and pathways. MYT techniques can be used within Yoga classes. It is our belief that in serving others, we can heal ourselves also.

The Heroic Heart: Moving Beyond Fear

A Kundalini Yoga Experience With Jai Dev Singh

3:30 — 6pm

For the average individual, fear acts as a poison, draining life-force from the body and mind. For the skillful yogi, fear is an asset we use to generate tremendous energy for our mission.

For the average individual, death is a darkness looming behind them stoking the fire of subconscious fears. For the warrior yogi, death is our wisest advisor, illuminating what is real, from what is illusion.

Experience how to draw your life-force away from your weaknesses, and into your life’s mission. This is the path of bliss. Fear is no longer something which stops you in your tracks, but rather a force which propels you into fearlessness.

Using tremendous Kundalini Yoga practices, wisdom teachings, and transporting meditations… you will unlock your life-force, bring the mind into diamond-like clarity, and arouse the your deep sense of purpose. From that space of genuine bliss, a force of joy emerges and love reigns supreme.

All levels… Everyone is welcome!

Jai Dev is a yogi and internationally renowned teacher. He is the founder of the Life-Force Academy — a global community for yogic teachings and practices. He is a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist, herbalist, and travels all over the world sharing ancient yogic teachings in a uniquely accessible way that’s relevant for our times.

Developing a handstand takes strength, balance, flexibility, focus, and patience — the components of any worthwhile  physical practice. But nearly anyone with a childlike sense of play and curiosity can achieve it!
Come to this 2-hour workshop to learn techniques and progressions to become more comfortable on your hands and upside down, both on and off the wall.
All levels welcome. Beginners will be given steps to safely overcome the fear of inverting. Those with an existing handstand practice will be given tools to hone their “line,” aesthetics, and endurance. 

Weekend Adjustments Immersion

2-Day Training With Samara Speller

November 9 – 10, 2019
Saturday 3 – 7pm, Sunday 2 – 6pm
$200 by Oct 28
$250 thereafter
(No day rates. Participants must attend full weekend.)
Join Samara Speller for a weekend adjustments immersion at Lighthouse Yoga School. This intensive program is for yoga teachers or experienced practitioners interested in learning the theory and application of adjustments through hands-on practice.
You will:
  • Explore the principles behind effective adjusting. Rather than memorizing an adjustment for each pose, you will learn the underpinning theory so that you will be able to adjust any pose regardless of if we’ve looked at it before
  • Develop your vision and eye for detail so that before you even touch a body, you are able to clearly assess where the pose is “off” and from where it needs to be adjusted (which are rarely the same place)
  • Gain ample hands on experience adjusting your peers and receiving feedback
  • Examine your own habitual ways of sitting, standing, and moving which inform your experience both in and outside of the practice and will help you to better orient yourself and others
  • Develop a creative and skillful approach to working with people experiencing injuries, pain, or other challenges

Tools + Techniques for Cultivating Joy

Workshop With Tony Lupinacci

Saturday, November 16, 2019
3 — 5pm
$40 in advance
$50 day of

A sense of joy can be present in all situations whereas happiness is often fleeting and can end the moment it’s begun.

In this 2 hour workshop, we will use asana along with deep spiritual practices such as pranayama, mantra, and kriya to create, or build upon a daily spiritual practice. A dedicated sadhana can help us stay grounded and steady instead of subscribing to life’s ups and down’s. When we become comfortable with uncertainty – joy is possible!

The goal of this workshop is to help students apply tools from the practice to everyday life.
