What Is The Yoga With Calley Practice Project?
A yoga workshop series to build regularity around a yoga practice, and deeper understanding of the ways your yoga practice can be refined to support and strengthen your mind, body, and breath. Education science tells us it takes 8-12 weeks to integrate new information.
~ An intentional setting (same time/place each week)
~ A community (same small group of no more than 12 people to support regularity)
~ Tools (custom sequence with detailed print-out instructions and audio guide for at-home use)
“We cannot reach the goal by mere words alone. Without practice, nothing can be achieved.” – Sri Swami Satchidananda, Yoga Philosopher
Develop Your Practice
Sessions are meant to help develop a short (8 minutes) daily solo yoga practice, and as a tool for self-learning and growth, with the support of an intimate group. Staying accountable to ourselves and new health goals may be a great challenge, as we are often encouraged to serve others, or fall into old habits. By practicing, we gain insight into the great web of our personal health, and functionality within our chosen communities.
Learn By Association
We practice yoga asana together (12 ppl max) for 90 minutes, beginning with a five-minute meditation, some intro to yoga concepts, and then workshop-style asana (poses) practice. Sequences are tailored based on health intake information of the group, facilitating greater understanding of ourselves physically, mentally, & emotionally. Learning our body, mind, and breath through observation and repetition of stillness and movement, and how these patterns are reflected through a yoga sequence, the energy / matter relationship, and the basics of Ayurveda. We observe our poses in contrast to those of one another as a sort of mirror.
“You cannot simply read about the practice to gain its benefits, you have to actually do it.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn, creator Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
What Former Participants Say
I definitely did not expect to still be practicing yoga, let alone pontificate about how great it can be for you. Turns out I am, and I do, and it’s great, so thank YOU.
– Jesse, Practice Project 2.0 (Fall 2017)
I loved the longer time together, having the same people, I liked the 20 minutes at the beginning to get into my body quietly, without talking or listening. And I also feel like I spent more time building strength than I typically do, which helped my practice improve overall.
– Betsy S., Practice Project 1.0 (Winter 2017)
It was a comfortable environment from Day 1. Having “homework” was helpful in keeping me engaged in between class meetings. And of all things, I enjoyed the optional cleanse! It was a different challenge, and I appreciated the push to do it; there’s definitely no way I would have completed an entire week if I was doing it on my lonesome.
– Sarah M., Practice Project 1.0 (Winter 2017)
The same people [at each session] made sharing time like mini therapy, got really deep into specific poses (hello Warrior 2!)
