9-11am Interdisciplinary Yoga: Myofascial Yoga &Toning the Vagus Nerve
In this summer’s special Interdisciplinary Yoga Workshop Series, designed for Ages 18 and up, explore the Vagus Nerve, Myofascial Release and its relationship to Yoga Practices. Vagus means “wanderer”. The Vagus Nerve is the 10th cranial nerve, “wandering” and touching most of the body’s organs. Splitting into two branches through the head, down the spine, to the brain, larynx, pharynx, esophagus, tongue, ears, lungs, gut, heart, liver, spleen, gallbladder, kidney, pancreas, intestines, reproductive organs, and ureter. Yoga Practices stimulates the Vagus Nerve improving communication between your body’s organs. Research shows increased vagal tone through breathing patterns, prayer, meditation, chanting, laughing, singing, coughing, gargling, socializing, exercise, and stretching. Vagal toning in Yoga supports digestion, blood pressure, glucose stabilization, bile production, decreases inflammation, supports tasting, swallowing, speaking, eye contact, human emotion, and releases oxytocin, the relationships hormone. FYI: Low vagal tone shows up as depression, anxiety, OCD, Loss of appetite, weight gain, chronic fatigue, brain/dementia issues, B12 deficiency, heart problems, nausea/dizziness, digestive Issues, diabetes, imbalanced blood glucose, ear pain, neck pain, chest pressure, temperature control extremities, autism, eating disorders, MS, addictions, sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, many of these now known to be symptoms of autoimmune issues.$20/$25
11-1pm Expressive Visioning Process: Healing Our Separateness
Explore the human experience of oneness with all things and a sense of connectedness with the whole universe. Instead of being a witness to life, you feel immersed in and merged with whatever you are witnessing. You don’t see the mountain, river, or tree. You are the mountain, river and tree. You don’t just hear the bird singing, you are the bird song. You just don’t eat a strawberry, you are immersed in everything about the strawberry. Awareness is pure experience with no divisions. This experience of oneness is the essence of nonduality. WE ill eat, smell look, see, imagine and feel how it is to look at life with new awareness. A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe”, a part limited in time and space. A human experiences himself, thoughts, and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. Albert Einstein, letter to Robert S. Marcus, February 12, 1950
Be delighted by this unusual combination of experiences linked together to leave you feeling inspired to explore your next step with ease and grace. Using music, and the arts to foster self-expression, insight, creativity, visioning, and expanded states of consciousness we will spread our wings and fly free. Gather visioning tools for Lucid dreaming / Shamanic Journey to explore the multi-dimensional quantum universe connecting with many sources of guidance to manifest your desires. $20/25

Interdisciplinary Yoga: Yoga+ Brain for More Cognitive Gain
Current Neuroscience research shows meditation in motion or stillness creates happiness by increasing dopamine and serotonin. Focus increases cortical thickness increasing attention. Cortical folding increases for faster processing. Whole brain function increases, balancing hemispheres and brain waves patterns. Stress relief is natural by down regulating cortisol and adrenaline. Cognitive function improves by increasing grey matter, brain volume and cerebral blood flow. WOW! It is amazing! Join me for an enlightening morning practicing meditation in stillness and motion to change the brain. A joyful journey of meditation in motion and stillness infused with experiences to expand intuition and inspiration by integrating the Medical Yoga, Mindfulness, and Positive Psychology.

Fascial tension is often times the culprit for un-diagnosable chronic pain. Your fascial system and your belief system are intimately linked. When you unwind your body, you unwind your life. Join me as we look at effective techniques within the yoga practice with a shift in awareness to the nature of fascia. Fascia is a web-like structure that is made of collagen, elastin, and polysaccharide gel complex that is a connective tissue around everything (YES! EVERYTHING) in the body. Join me to unwind the fascia which holds your whole life experience causing strain, stiffness and tension. A joyful journey of meditation in motion and stillness infused with experiences to expand intuition and inspiration by integrating Medical Yoga, Mindfulness, and Positive Psychology.

Dancing increases cognitive acuity at all ages. Dancing integrates several brain functions at once — kinesthetic, rational, musical, and emotional — further increasing your neural connectivity. A 21-year study of senior citizens, 75 and older, was led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, funded by the National Institute on Aging, and published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Their method for objectively measuring mental acuity in aging was to monitor rates of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. They studied cognitive activities such as reading books, writing for pleasure, doing crossword puzzles, playing cards and playing musical instruments. And they studied physical activities like playing tennis or golf, swimming, bicycling, dancing, walking for exercise and doing housework. One of the surprises of the study was that almost none of the physical activities appeared to offer any protection against dementia. There can be cardiovascular benefits of course, but the focus of this study was the mind. There was one important exception: the only physical activity to offer protection against dementia was frequent dancing: Reading: 35% reduced risk of dementia, Bicycling/swimming: 0%, Crossword puzzles at least 4 d/wk :47%, Golf: 0%, Dancing frequently: 76%.
Interdisciplinary Yoga: Yoga Beyond: Happiness to Joy
What is the difference between Joy and Happiness? Cheryl McDonald PsyD, says: Joy is something that lasts. Happiness is something that is temporary. Joy is an inner, conscious belief…Scientists say this emotion (Happiness) can be studied and measured because people can reliably and honestly self-report their increases and decreases in happiness levels. Joy is a state of mind, a combination of emotions, and in the spiritual context is localized in our heart. Joy contains elements of contentment, confidence and hope. Joy upgrades your hormones and neurotransmitters. Connection with nature and people provides oxytocin, associated with behavioral and psychological support for meaningful relationships. The more we activate joy, the stronger joy filled neural pathways become due to Nueroplasticity. Join the fun for a joyful journey of meditation in motion and stillness infused with experiences to expand intuition and inspiration by integrating Medical Yoga, Mindfulness, and Positive Psychology.

Interdisciplinary Yoga: Yoga and The Neuroscience of Gratitude.
Join me for a morning yoga session to upgrade hormones and neurotransmitters though Appreciation/Gratitude . Simple gratefulness provides oxytocin, associated with behavioral and psychological support for meaningful relationships. Gratitude increases activity in the hypothalamus, the master hormone gland. The more we activate gratitude, the stronger gratitude neural pathways become. Neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to form new neural connections throughout life, will help us recognizes and change negative thinking before it has brought us down. All levels. No experience necessary.
