Learn More Series

A series of continuing education workshops for teachers and serious students of yoga. Each session will offer an opportunity to earn CEU’s (Continued Education Units) at a reasonable cost, with the added benefit of keeping you close to home! The workshops themselves will bring high quality instruction, presented in a condensed, but easily digestible format. The teachers will be from our own dynamic yoga community, as well as teachers known to us regionally. The hope is that as teachers and students of yoga, we continue to grow and “learn more” together!

PYR Presents Learn More: Bhakti Flow 101 with Izzy Shurte

Saturday, July 18th 3:00-6:00 PM

Led by Izzy Shurte RYT-500.

Part I: Experience Bhakti Flow 90 minutes
The workshop begins by diving directly into the Bhakti Flow experience with the introduction of a theme, “What is Bhakti?”, moving onto direct experience of Bhakti through Metta (Maitri / LovingKindness Meditation), continuing onto asana moving meditation working to infuse each breath, each pose with Bhakti, concluding with Shivasana where students can simply receive the gift of song as they are serenaded by a traditional Bhajan (song of love), followed by a rousing from Sivasana for a single call and response chant to seal the practice.

Part II: Mechanics of Bhakti Yoga 50 minutes
Kirtan style call and response Bhakti experience. Chant sheets will be provided, and time will be taken to explain logistics of call and response, appropriate times for silence/ pause, proper Sanskrit pronunciation will be clarified and translated, myths will be shared and deities as archetypes will be explored. Students will leave with direct experience of Bhakti as well as some chants they can immediately begin to work with in their practice.

Students will learn:

  • What is Bhakti Flow Yoga
  • How to incorporate mantra into your life, your practice and your classes if you are a teacher
  • Direct experience in / increased confidence in participating in Kirtan style call and response Satsang

Please bring a notebook, pen and yoga mat.

Intention and Being
Join Rolf for a dynamic weekend of asana, meditation, pranayama and lecture/discussion as we explore the complimentary practices of effortless creation and effortless present moment awareness in our lives. These teachings offer us a way to explore our relationship to our practice and give us a means for creating a life that works. The yoga will be a synergy of the dynamic freedom of a powerful vinyasa class and the structural integrity of yoga’s therapeutic alignment principles. All sessions will be based on Rolf’s upcoming book: Intention and Being: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Mindfulness and Compassion. The only requirement is that you show up…do your best and let your best be good enough.


The Chakras in Action: How to use the Chakras in creating effective drop-in classes.

The Chakras chart a course across our lives by defining key relationships that have to be resolved on the path to spiritual maturity. They are an energetic link between the manifest and the un-manifest dimensions in our lives and the place in which thought becomes form. A well-designed yoga class unfolds along the path laid out by the Chakras. This workshop will combine a lecture/discussion period and an asana-practice session dedicated to integrating the concepts taught. To truly realize the learning opportunity, it is recommended that participants in the Chakras in Action Workshop also attend a minimum of one Vinyasa session during the weekend. Workshop open to Teachers and Experienced Students
