OMGoddess! Bowl of Well Being - an online program for women to cultivate health, creativity and sanity in a nutty world may be returning in 2019. This year long program, lead by Mary and Cyd from 2014 through 2016, had monthly conference calls, a rich online packet of information/audio practices/links to feminine inspirations and optional checkin options with others in the group. We are working on a manual that includes the main parts of Mary’s and Cyd’s own writings and work. This may be available for others who have done the program in the past and wish to lead their own womens groups during 2019. It is also available to those who are doing the program in 2019; there will be a support option for course leaders.
The online information for the program will keep the essential parts but will be revised with upto date material and practices, including a section on bringing one’s yoga more fully into our engagement with the world. Essentially this program is about active women taking care of themselves; we do not want to encourage more “shoulds” and guilt for not doing enough when we are already fully stretched to our max. However, the feminine is rising and there is much evidence of this. Inspirations abound for those of us moving our practice more fully into taking care of the earth and our communities, families, friends and students. This program may include access to the online Yoga for Women video course at Naada Yoga Online School mentioned below, or a discount for those who already have this online course.
More info soon! Let us know you are interested.
For many of us the online educational opportunities and sanghas have helped support our practice and teaching wherever we live and whatever type of schedule we have. Please also see private sessions for those who want to work one to one and not in a group.
Upside Down Inside Out Online Program - Want to explore inversions and your whole practice with an online sangha and support material? This course has been conducted in Oakland and in Boonville, California 2017-2018. If you are interested in an online forum for this fascinating and under-explored area of yoga practice and teaching, contact Mary directly.
This year I am delighted to announce the Yoga for Women online program is now ready for those of you who would like to revisit your practice from the feminine perspective and also to explore issues of womens health and cycles in terms of a peaceful and powerful practice for these challenging times we live in. There are video sections, audio practices, bountiful material to support your yoga path that has been brought together from over 3 decades of working with women in all types of situations. Each section of this program refers to teachers that have been inspirations for me and have much to say to the modern yogini right now. This program is produced by the team at Yoga Naada in Montreal, an extraordinarily vital yoga studio with a full complement of educational online material. In 2019, we may incorporate this video program into an online forum for women to explore these issues in depth. However this course on its own has proved helpful and supportive to women who are seeking a more feminine approach to practice and teaching, and encouragement to listen deeply within.
