Thursday 14th November 6:00 to 8:30 PM – Moving Meditation Masterclass

Flow Masterclass

The purpose of our practice is to experience the unity of our mind, body and soul in a fluid and seamless flow state. For over a decade I cued “breath to movement.” After diving deeper into my meditation practice and making the breath the focus, I shifted to “movement to breath.” The physical practice became something different, it became alive, connected, and truly authentic to how I wanted to move and BE. This workshop taps into the deeper levels of our being, getting back in touch with our natural rhythms beyond the fear of “not enough”, beyond the fear of “looking different.” We will introduce creative transitions and reconnect with the inner freedom of self-expression and letting go found in a moving meditation. 

Friday 15th November  9:00 to 11:30 AM – A Twist on Anatomy

Body Mechanics

It is always easy to feel grounded and centred when life goes smoothly and is in alignment. The reality is that life is a series of twists and turns. How we show up in times when we feel constricted, twisted in knots, and out of alignment, is telling of how we will show up in life. In this workshop, we will practice finding center in our twisting asanas from seated, standing, as well as inversions. Master the twists on your mat to show you how you can stay centred and grounded through the twists of life.

Friday 15th November  1:00 to 3:30 PM – Bend the Spoon

Flow Masterclass

We all want to give and receive love, but what we really want is to be loved for who we authentically are. When our hearts are closed, we don’t express our full self and therefore, we limit what we allow into our lives: we limit our careers, our relationships, and our love that we want to spread and share. We will reconnect with ourselves and our authenticity through opening our hearts in a flow that revolves around backbends. As we open up the frontline of our body, we will embrace the power of vulnerability in our heart. As we flow through these asanas and open up, we will create a path that explores backbends in a liberating way to speak into the limitless possibilities in all areas of our lives.

Saturday 16th November  9:00 to 11:30 AM – Functional Float Flow

Flow Masterclass

The way I was taught new yoga poses (as with just about all of us) was to keep trying the same pose over and over until we mastered it. But what if there was a more efficient way to get to the same result? Someone once said “We are all headed towards our ‘true North’ in this world. It’s just that most of us go South and take the long way around to get there.” In this master class, we will flow progressively into more involved transitions and postures to increase consistency and ease in moving in and out of the arm balances and inversions throughout our practice.

Saturday 16th November 1:00 to 3:30 PM – Social Media & Yoga: the New Business Card (Social Media Marketing Workshop)

YTT Module

When I started teaching yoga, the way to gain exposure to share my passion was through posters on a light pole or on a bulletin board in a grocery store. We live in a time where no one is glancing at billboards on the street, magazine ads, or commercials anymore. We’re all looking at our phones: Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat. The reality is we love what we do and we feel like we have something of value to offer the world. This module gives insight into how to use social media to share more of what we love with more people. Even making a career out of sharing our passion through social media is possible. Regardless of how any of us might feel about social media, the one thing it has done is create possibility. And where there is possibility, there’s always a way to turn that into a probability.

How important would you say it is to keep growing in life? We wouldn’t settle for being in the same position at our work for more than a year or so, then why do we let the only thing that will help us grow—learning—take a back seat?

Why do we allow ourselves to be stuck in time when we know how essential learning is for growth?

In fact, it’s crucial for so much more than that. Learning keeps us humble, builds our confidence, and helps us have intellectual conversations and debates that lift our personas.

Even so, I feel our approach to learning matters a lot because there is a difference between being a student and a lifelong learner.

While a student learns with the purpose of passing exams, without caring much about the knowledge or using it in life, a lifelong learner is passionate about knowing more about things that interest them, and improve lives with it.

There are three key characteristics of a lifelong learner: curiosity, passion and empathy.

The desire to learn stems from curiosity about our world. This is closely linked with passion for the field; while empathy is the emotional impulse that fuels our passions. For me, this is about holistic wellness.

I enjoy learning more about how I can keep my body healthy; exercise, food and mental well-being are a big part of that. Hence I naturally seek out workshops, classes, podcasts, books and such in this space.

For example, recently, I was in the Philippines learning about organic farming with my family. In the same month, I also went to San Francisco to complete my 500 hours of yoga teachers training with Jason Crandell.

These experiences made me realise how much more learning enriches our lives. It’s not just social aspect of meeting people that brings us happiness, but the fact that we are learning something that will add value to our lives—that will help us grow personally and professionally—as well as help everyone around us.

So learn, make it your goal this summer. Go at it alone, with your loved ones, or with new people; study something digitally in the comfort of your home, or go to a class and learn together with peers—pick your style!

Take up a new skill for work or refresh your hobbies. Learning has become so much easier with a ton of online and offline resources, let’s take advantage of this. Moreover, with lighter workloads this season and school summer break upon us, it’s the best time of the year to start learning something new—by yourself or along with your family.

Let’s make this summer our spring. Let’s learn something new that will help us grow. Let’s commit to making every day a school day and feed our passions with more knowledge. Share what you know and what you want to learn. Let’s go on this adventure together as a community and come out more enlightened at the end of this season.

I’m so excited to hear from you! Let’s explore how we can support each other on this journey—what do you say?

Love,

Elisa
