The Origins and Evolution of the Namaskar with visiting teacher Lily Russo
A workshop to deepen your understanding, alignment, and appreciation of the sun salutation.
Almost everyone who has some experience in yoga is familiar with Surya Namaskar, the Sun Salutation. But with many variations and little context provided in most classes, it can be confusing to know where it came from, what are the benefits, and what is the best way for each student to practice it? A combination of lecture and practice, this workshop will teach the origins of the Namaskar as a humble bow of prostration in between rounds of the Gayatri mantra honoring the sun, and progress to teach several variations of the modern Sun Salutation. A tutorial on the various ways to transition in between rounds will assist students in learning the most effective, aligned, and safe way to chatturanga, and other transition vinyasas. Photographic handouts will be given to help students continue practicing these beneficial, energy creating sequences at home.
Lily Russo, E-RYT 500, has been practicing yoga most of her life. Her initial practice of asana lead her to study all the other facets including pranayama, meditation, and Ayurveda, as well as other influential disciplines, primarily Buddhism and the Tao. She believes that practices which lead us to recognize our relations to our higher selves and to all other beings as well as the natural world create a life of harmony. As a teacher Lily is passionate about sharing these practices with her students, so that they may use them to realize mental calm and clarity, as well as physical strength and grace. She crafts classes and workshops based on the needs of her students, time of day and year, and her intuition around what is energetically calling for attention in the moment. More information at www.lilyrussoyoga.com; the Firewalks and empowerment trainings she leads with her husband at www.thehighpath.com; and about her other passion, mosaic art, at www.lilymosaics.com.

transformational yogic journey that awaits the seeker after Truth.” ~BKS Iyengar.

Join us for community night at TYC and experience yogic lifestyle!
This month let's gather in the name of warmth, spices and nourishment. Spices are primal medicine! Learn how to make the classical Ayurvedic dish kitchari. This is an easy and delicious one pot meal that is renowned for its ability to "re-set" your digestive system. It is nourishing for body and soul. We will also make our own home-brewed chai tea! Let the kichari cook and the chai simmer while we learn the value of the Gayatri mantra. The Gayatri is the oldest known mantra from the vedas that celebrates the inextinguishable light. We'll learn to use the mala beads to integrate this ancient practice and experience a high vibration meditation. Feel the palpable shift in your own being through this ancient practice connecting us to the highest Self.
Let's make this a potluck! Bring an easy dish and bowl, mug and utensils.
This event is donation based. Donations will be matched by TYC and given to a cause TBD by the group.
TRAVELING MYSTIC: SOMA AND SHABDA (THE NECTAR OF SOUND)- A CONCERT
We are proud to present an evening with Philippe Gagné, a talented multi-instrumentalist whose music is centered around the Handpan, offering a sublime and rapturous experience in sound.
Phillippe's musical style focuses on melodic and musical patterns both created and improvised as an ambient melody to everyday life. Incorporating electro-acoustic and electronic elements to his live sets, he creates an ambient atmosphere that is easy to get positively lost into.
Phillippe is an independent artist and street musician from Quebec City, Canada. An avid traveler and busker, he has performed in the streets of Germany and Finland, always
coming back to the picturesque scenery of the St-Lawrence river and the streets of Old Quebec, Canada.
Sail into the mystic, soothe your nervous system and re-charge your creative energy on Sunday, September 24th, 7-8pm at the Telluride Yoga Center.

Join Kristin Taylor, Prana Vinyasa, RYT for a very special ritual practice devoted to a conscious transition from summer to fall. This practice is deeply intentional as we weave our prayers and dreams into the physical, mental and emotional body. 108 varying namaskars (Sun and Moon Salutations) will carry us into a place of deeper self knowing, strength and integrity. If the thought of 108 namaskars makes you waiver, your practice will be fully supported with modifications and the option to rest. Mala beads are also provided for mantra japa (prayer meditation). Please join the community as we honor this sacred sandhya (transition point) together.

Join us at the Telluride Yoga Center for a public lecture on Kriya Yoga: Kriya Yoga is an ancient method of living and meditation that cultivates body, mind, intellect and awareness of soul using powerful meditative and yoga disciplines. It helps us to experience the three divine qualities of light, vibration, and sound by using techniques of concentration, posture and breathing. This develops one-pointed mind, which enables us to penetrate the deepest levels of consciousness and to change our lives. Kriya Yoga teaches that any action kri, is done by ya, the indwelling soul. It is a universal spiritual discipline that crosses all divisions and boundaries.

COLORADO CACAO, YOGA & SOUND
Explore the fusion of the ancient practices of Yoga and Shamanism! Join CJ Ananda on a heart expanding journey of Cacao, Yoga & Sound.
Yoga (union with the Divine) and Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) both are practices traditionally designed to lead us to the direct flow of wisdom and the embodiment of spirit. We shall be working with the elements as shamanic archetypes to create a conscious conversation between our inner Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine. Through this practice we will come into harmonious union aligning ourselves to our true nature.
We begin the class with a cup of Sacred Cacao to connect us to Spirit. Using the essence of cacao to open clear channels between our Mulhadara chakra (the body), the Anahata chakra (the heart) and the sahasrara chakra (Great Spirit); activating an intense and transformational practice. Our experience will be deepened by the constant thread of Sacred Sounds and Icaros (Shamanic songs) performed live by our team.
