Respiration Yoga

 with Zander Hathaway

 

Respiration Yoga involves a powerful breathing exercise derived from Tibetan Tummo, which has been practiced in extremely cold temperatures by monks for several thousand years and recently made popular by Wim Hof, a.k.a. “the Iceman”. This method is designed to influence the autonomic nervous system, endocrine system, and immune system, in order to bring balance to virtually all functions of the body, regulate its core temperature, and generate greater health and happiness. We will begin the practice at the top of the waterfall and then move into the water to experience it in a colder environment.

Vibrational Yin Yoga

 with Natashia Steenkamp

 

This class is a blend of vibrational sound and yin asanas with Reiki, and Yoga Nidra meditation. This fusion of healing practices is designed to reawaken and balance the mind, body and soul. Vibrational Yin aims at cultivating inner awareness opening the heart and bringing light to a universal consciousness of love.

 The NLP Model of
Personal Identity and Behavior

 

with Russ Giles

Probably about the time that human beings arrived at what we call rational thought, we have embarked upon a species quest to try to explain to ourselves why we behave in the way we do.  Various models of behavioral motivation have been introduced throughout the ages from gods/goddesses/spirits/imps/ devils & demons; positions of planets at conception/birth and movements of heavenly bodies; to modern times offering early childhood sexual repressions; varying archetypes, group fixations; toilet training; ancestral family aberrations, et al.

Nowadays we tend to look at and experiment with some of the new ‘leading’ edge psychologies, as well as, resurrected ancient wisdom’s for their healing/behavioral interventions WITHOUT really learning much about the model of behavioral reality that those systems use as their fundamental paradigm or wellspring.

This brief 2 hour workshop is comprised of three parts:  first, a discussion with brief exercises introducing the model upon which Neuro-Linguistic Programming is based; second; a description and practice with one of the key diagnostic tools used in NLP; and third, a specific behavioral change intervention that is commonly used to disappear phobic reactions.

Russ Giles is a certified master practitioner in NLP with post work in Family Constellations and psycho-linguistic.  He has often introduced NLP techniques in past presentations and figured it was about time to present the philosophic basis of this recent therapy. Russ abhors academic lecture so you can expect his typical irreverent and somewhat satirical approach to any subject regarding how we all attempt to mentally explain to ourselves why we do, feel, think and say all the crazy things that make up our fantasized rational and irrational behaviors.
