Yancy Schwartz


Dharma Master Class

Dharma Yoga is a Hatha Raja Yoga practice. In Hatha (Sun/Moon) you hold the poses a little longer and the Raja (Royal) refers to the study of the Eight Limbs of yoga, or the Royal Path. This practice includes chanting, pranayama, meditation as well as Asana (postures). Dharma Yoga is from the lineage of the living yoga master Sri Dharma Mittra. A hallmark of Dharma Yoga is the variety of postures that are explored. In this workshop Yancy will introduce and help you learn a few of Dharma's 908 postures. Yancy studied with Dharma and taught at his studio in New York.

Form, Flow & Function

Setting up a practice for insight.

Often what is familiar feels correct and we will repeat the same habits even when they serve us no longer. In this workshop we will look at the building blocks of asana from the lens of sacred geometry and origami, in order to take a step back from the personal and have real insights into what is working for us and what is not. Then we will apply what we learned in a vinyasa experience, exploring how form and flow work synergistically to give us a functional relationship with our bodies that will serve us long and serve us well.

In Reiki 1, you will get attuned to Reiki which enables you to become a channel for this beautiful healing energy. Once attuned, you will be able to give Reiki to yourself and anyone else for the rest of your life.

During the attunment process of level 1, I will crown to crown align us and transfer Reiki energy to you to be able to receive it. Reiki will then start to flow through you. In level 1 we will learn all about Reiki, where it came from, what it is and how to use it to heal yourself and others.
Afterwards you will begin a 21-day purification cleanse.

La Mer


Midsummer Moon Bath

Join sound weaver La Mer for a nourishing soma (moon) sound bath composed with crystal singing bowls, bells, chimes, synodic gong and medicine melodies that attune our inner waters with the moon tides.

Notes on Sound:

Chanting, singing, and rhythm has been used for healing since the dawn of time.
A conscious, relaxed state induces an alpha brain-wave pattern. This causes the immune system to release molecules containing various kinds of energy, some which travel to the brain to support cranial sacral (crown to root) circuitry, assisting in the overall healing process on a cellular level.
Vibration effects every part of our being.
