Yogi Summer School (Online)
Not the dreaded summer school of yesteryear!!
We've crafted a 3-week online summer school program for yogis that fits in to even the most fun, jam-packed summers! This 3-part program shows you the way to get the most out of your summer in body, mind and spirit. Each day of summer school a new teaching from Tracey, Julia or Gina will pop into your email box and give you a practice to support your best summer yet!
Monday-Friday, June 4-22, 2018
Each week has a primary emphasis, asana, ayurveda or meditation, but each week you'll receive a mix of teachings from each of the teachers on each of the subjects!
Yogi Summer School is open to everyone but the entire program counts for 9 non-contact hours of continuing education for any Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teachers that participate!
Warm summer days encourage our sense of play and curiosity, and we are naturally called outdoors to engage in more vigorous activities like hiking, climbing, swimming and biking. Because our summer adventures off the mat are so dynamic, balancing them with a nourishing yoga asana practice can help keep us from feeling drained and energetically depleted.
Join Tracey Garcia, your guide in Summer School yoga asana, for a cooling, nourishing, fluid practice specifically crafted to pacify the fiery Pitta energy that dominates summer and that supports a reserve of stamina for FUN. Throughout the week, she will guide you with yoga asana tips and cooling pranayama practices to keep you balanced and inspired to make your Summer ’18 epic!
The summer months ignite our natural energy and stamina and provide us with warm temps and long days in which to play! But heat and high physical activity can also contribute to energetic burn out, stress, skin flare-ups and heartburn. Ayurveda describes how an increase of the fire element in summer can dry our tissues and deplete our energy reserves if we don't take care. The good news? The medicine is in the ground and on your plate!
The third and final week of summer school includes both the Summer Solstice and the International Day of Yoga - both auspicious opportunities to either ignite or rekindle your meditation practice! All yogas are concerned with transcending the conditioned consciousness that causes our suffering and meditation cultivates the awareness necessary to do so! Most of us feel as if we "don't have time" to meditate, especially in the go-go-go of summer. But this week of meditation teachings is designed for yogis with full lives - we've got you!
