Sunday – November 20th
-Adults on Sunday-
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.
Experiencing how practicing yoga daily impacts her life, she is honored to be able to share and guide others along on their own personal journey. Amber believes in creating space for each student to have their own unique experience on the mat, offering alignment cues and variations to choose what best suits you that day, in that moment. As she weaves her experience of practicing and teaching yoga for the last four years with her teacher training, retreats, and workshops into each class she guides you through.

(Bring extra fruit to share in the morning Fruitluck or eat on your own schedule)
with Kimmy McCann
In 2013, Kim hiked the Appalachian Trail, a 2189 mile trek along the East Coast of the United States. As a solo hiker, she developed a daily walking meditation that included chakra balancing, karmic clearing, and circles of light. During that period of time she witnessed uncommon manifestations, survived a bear encounter, and escaped three serious falls that could have resulted in death. One hiker witnessed her fall 15 feet off of a steep vertical path and land with no injuries or scratches. He told her that he had just seen her “float down” the fall. She will be sharing her meditation techniques in a one hour walk about at the Diamante Center. If you have a walking stick or two, please bring (not required).
