BBTR Breathwork Workshop
August 5-12-19-26 2018
In this fully experiential workshop you'll have a first hand experience of full power of this incredible opening work. BBTRS® practice includes a range of various conscious movement oriented structures, group exercises, active meditations, and a full breath work session combined with special movement to unlock tension at the core of your body. You will be introduced to valuable information on how your body reacts to and stores past traumatic events. This practice allows the stuck ‘Fight of Flight’ response to be completed creating free flow of previously arrested bio-energy.
The voice INTENTION Class
Find your intention through your voice with music and poetry. Through Stephan's one-on-one lessons, you can heal the fear that is holding you back from saying what you need. During this workshop, you'll have the opportunity to discover your voice, the mirror of your soul. A very fun and empowering experience! No singing technique required - this not a singing class.
By combining the practice of movement, awareness, breath, sound, and nourishment, we've created a system that helps reconnect ourselves with our natural inner resources. The practice of yoga strengthens both body and mind, helping us to find joy in difficulty and to act with intention.

Ali grew up in a small town in Upstate NY and now lives in Oneonta, NY. She was first drawn to yoga when living in NYC 7 years ago to stay grounded amidst chaotic city living. More recently, she has become a mother to a beautiful daughter, and this has influenced her yoga practice profoundly. In motherhood, she has drawn even more from yoga as she learns the deepest love, patience, presence, and gratitude.
Ali will be completing her 200 hr RYT with the Yoga Alliance with Raghunath at Supersoul Farm in Bhakti Yoga and. Ali's practice is mostly drawn from the styles of Vinyasa, Iyengar, Yin, and Restorative, with elements of Pranayama.

This helps her students leave class happy with their minds and bodies relaxed.

Kelsie Laing is a Delaware County native returning to roost after a few years spent exploring Texas and beyond. As a die-hard foodie with a hungry mind, she can often be found dancing her way around the kitchen creating clever confections or satisfying her appetite with the study of holistic therapy and its applications in Yoga, Ayurveda, and everyday connections.
Kelsie became a certified 200RYT in 2015 under the guidance of Black Swan Yoga in Austin, TX with an emphasis in Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Chakra Psychology. With a passion for movement as therapy, Kelsie has since pursued advanced studies of alignment and biomechanics, becoming licensed bodyworker along the way. In class, Kelsie encourages her fellow yogis to revel in sweet support of community while moving through challenging yet playful sequences, all rooted in kinetic movement and arising from the space where strength meets vulnerability.
