Finish up with some restorative postures for rejuvenation and a short meditation to set the tone for a new beginning. The class is by donation, with a suggested $20 donation, and all proceeds will go to Ulster Immigrant Defense Network
Meditation is the most fundamental spiritual practice of all because it develops our most valuable asset of all–our awareness. Sharing just a few simple tools and insights, Aaron teaches you how to overcome common obstacles and develop a practice that is steady, satisfying, authentic to your own path and wildly effective in helping you reach your goals. We will devote the rest of the weekend to the study of the energy body–which effects everything about your lived experience on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Though you may not be able to see the subtle body (yet!) everyone can learn how to detect it and learn what it needs. By the end of the weekend you will feel much more confident about who you are, what you need and how to make it all fall into balance.
- the tools you need to establish a committed self-meditation practice.
- how to translate the information that your own energy body is trying to share.
- to become the authority on your own spiritual development.

Intro to the Chakras
with Aaron Dias
Sat., Nov. 16
The chakras are energy centers responsible for housing, processing and generating various kinds of archetypal energy. In this workshop you will learn the chakra system as a holistic template by which you can assess and address whatever has been arising for you in terms of physical, emotional and mental experiences.
We’ll do a yoga practice which will help you embody the teachings and learn how to ask for insight directly from your chakras. You’ll leave with a sweet, practical toolkit for continuing the work of understanding your chakras, healing them, receiving revelations from them, and accessing their ample gifts–these gifts which are truly YOUR gifts, in the most literal and original sense!
You’ll want to bring a notebook and pen/pencil + yoga stuff.
Aaron has been teaching meditation, enlightenment philosophy, yoga and related forms of energy healing for about a decade now. You can find her on the regular schedule at The Yoga House, leading modules of teacher trainings, spreading yoga and meditation to local Kindergartners or to SUNY NP undergrads, facilitating her online meditation community, on the phone doing personal awakening coaching, or out in the world leading retreats or workshops like this one.
Her unique approach to the chakras is based on a sprawling study of various healing traditions, all interwoven and applied through her own personal practices. Her chakra teachings have reached and transformed hundreds of folks by now. Go here to learn more.

Asana: Aligning the Body
November 1-3, 2019
Teachers: Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash
Underlying each yoga posture is the accumulated anatomical wisdom of ages. In this module, take a tactile journey through postural alignment, learning what is happening in the body in each asana so that you can safely guide practitioners and/or deepen your own home practice. With the help of slideshow presentations that Leigha and Jacquelyn have developed over the years, you will walk away from the weekend with a deeper understanding of the poses’ anatomical underpinnings. In addition, this module will arm you with the confidence and knowledge to teach safe, smart yoga asana alignment.
- Basic human anatomy
- Alignment essentials for movement and held postures
- How to apply knowledge of anatomy & alignment to your own practice
- How to guide practitioners safely
Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash
Having met in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Leigha and Jacquelyn decided to plant their yoga roots in Kingston in 2011 when they opened The Yoga House in Uptown Kingston. While their styles of practice and teaching differ, their polarities bring a very balanced approach to sharing yoga with those training with them. Both have studied with various teachers, Leigha most recently with Shiva Rea and Jacquelyn with David Swenson, bringing combined knowledge from different approaches to the practice. While they joke about not reading anything but yoga books, they are continually filling their wells with new inspiration for their committed personal practices and the classes that they teach.
