Define / Align / Refine :: A Very Conor Lab Experience

You guys, two hours with Conor, your brain, and I'm assuming our resident skeleton, Dr. Indiana Bones. ENOUGH SAID. Regardless, some more things said, below. CLICK TO SIGN UP.

SAT OCT 26
1:30 - 3:30pm
$50 per student

This workshop is a threefer. Expect to explore the below as it relates to your yoga practice and come out a thoughtful badass on the other side.

DEFINE: yoga poses are dynamic, complex, holistic and can serve many purposes. We can use the same poses for myriad, perhaps even opposing functions. You will learn to set clearer intentions for your yoga practice.

ALIGN: Human variation is a fact of nature. Bodies comprise the same parts but proportions and ratios vary. You are unique even to this moment depending on your mood, and where you are. This means that while the definition of a pose can be the same for everyone, its execution will be unique to you. You will learn to seek out and celebrate your individual expression of alignment. 

REFINE: Yoga = Practice. Postures, breathwork, and consciousness observation all serve to elevate each other and act as a lens to our experience of the world and ourselves. Yoga can be a tool of radical paradigm-shifting that empowers you to learn to be an agent of compassionate change and understanding.

VIBE :: The OM Lab

If you're that one kid who's vinyasa-obsessed with a boss flow but sits all silent and uncomfortable, enduring the OM at the end of the class because it seems as though you have to but you'd really rather not, hi, welcome! If you're the other kid who maybe doesn't super get what's going on with the OM but you've tried it a few times and hate to admit that you kinda like it, this one's for you! And if you're 100% all in on some body-shaking OMs and want to sing and vibrate and sound-heal and make noise, let's fucking do this.

Please join our very own Sam Wilensky and our dear friend cellist Dan Bindschedler for this 90-minute introduction to OM and its healing properties. In this workshop, we will practice, explore, and discuss a different style of meditation that occurs physically through vocal chords and vibrations to counteract stress on the body and mind. This workshop is suitable for all human beings and maybe your dog, too.

This workshop is a three-parter:

Part 1:
The history of OM, its function and place in our practice

Part 2:
Guided Meditation - An exploration of the OM chant and its vibrations led by Dan on cello

Part 3:
Closing Yin Yoga Practice - a 30-minute grounding class led by Sam, accompanied by live cello

An audio recording of cello drones will be available to all students sign up for the workshop

STRIPPED :: A Psychosomatics Lab

Be is joining us this spring for the ultimate body-as-laboratory workshop, an inquiry into the way the body physically holds and processes our contexts, traumas and memories. Psychosomatics is the science of mind-body interaction (sounds familiar, don't it?), the intricacies of the body as a shield and storehouse for our personal histories. Starting with the basest, most animalistic of physical triggers, the fight or flight response, we'll strip away the surface and see what we can start to unlock, seeing the body as both a tool and archaeological playground for discovery.

This workshop is included in the 200HRTT program, so if you're a TT participant, you're already signed up! We are opening a limited number of spaces to the public to join us for this session. Click here to sign up!

SLOW + DEEP :: The Yin Yoga Lab

We're psyched to welcome Be to our spring lab roster with SLOW + DEEP, her signature Yin yoga workshop.

As New Yorkers, we're notorious for walking fast, moving quickly and getting things done. In fact, we're experts. Often, the hardest thing for us to do is pause, notice the breath and BE with it, without needing to change or alter the present circumstance or outcome. It is when we slow down, though, that layers of our body armor soften and we are able to sink in to the depths of our true, authentic, real selves. In this YIN workshop, we will address the layers beneath the physical body by holding postures for an extended period of time to melt away tension and liberate the flow of qi that moves through the meridians of the subtle body.

YUP. Click here to sign up!

Ultimately, our practice can inform what we do off our mat and how we do it. It's all in the approach, on our mats and in our lives. Come and explore the vast world of what a self practice can offer. Click here to reserve a mat!

The task of a yoga teacher is to connect students to their highest sense of self. Consciousness. Universal energy. Love. Whatever you want to call it or name it (or not!)

To guide students to this space, we hold the torch through the excavation all of the life-wound layers that keep one from accessing this rich center of healing, truth, and ultimately bliss. This path is particular, it’s precise, and it’s purposeful. Just as vinyasa yoga was intended to be.

This training will cover :

  • Defining the true meaning of VINYASA
  • The anatomy and importance of building FIRE within a Vinyasa practice
  • The relationship of WATER within the Vinyasa practice
  • The importance of the element EARTH within a Vinyasa practice
  • Finding the magic of METAL in your sequencing
  • Exploring the shamanic and animals threads of WOOD within the practice
  • How to intelligently and intuitively sequence a vinyasa class structure
  • Sequencing a Yoga class using CHAKRAS as the focus
  • Sequencing a Yoga class using each of the FIVE ELEMENTS as the focus 

This lab meets Friday evenings 7 - 9pm and Sunday afternoons from 1:30 - 4:30pm on the following dates:

March 2nd & 4th
March 9th & 11th
March 16th & 18th

Radical Presence :: A Meditation Technologies Lab Series

We are so honored to be welcoming Ralph de la Rosa for a 4-week residency in January 2018. Ralph De La Rosa is the author of The Monkey is the Messenger: Meditation and What Your Busy Mind is Trying to Tell You (Shambhala, 2018). He is a psychotherapist and life coach who began practicing meditation in 1996 and has been teaching since 2008. He is a trauma, addiction, and depression survivor who now lives happily in Greenpoint with Emma Goldman and Henry, his two cats. He's also a real cool dude and friend of the studio and we have some matching tattoos. Workshop content below, click HERE to reserve your spot. Buy the full series for a discounted rate or you can purchase single sessions as well.

The stress and hustle of our lives too often force us to disconnect from our bodies, shut down our emotions, forsake our connection to nature and betray our deeper intentions and values. And then we wonder why we’re anxious. Or why our relationships aren’t working. Or why we can’t focus. Or sleep at night. Or figure out what we’re really meant to do with our lives.

When we turn around to reclaim that connection, something almost magical happens: we discover our innate ability to let go, to achieve true rest, and navigate our lives in profound, new ways. We reclaim our deeper nature.

Shamatha (mindfulness) meditation is the most widely practiced and scientifically studied form of meditation. This will be a four week exploration into the deeper, yet accessible aspects of shamatha meditation. Together, we will find a home in our bodies and an ability to restore and rewire our nervous systems. We will discover that the inner quietude and wakefulness we desire from meditation (that many come to believe is impossible for them) are attainable when we practice from a holistic perspective.

Please bring pen and paper. Please come prepared to meditate lying down. All workshops recorded in case you miss a class, so you will have our guided meditations to use at home.

Beginners to meditation welcome.

Those who have previously found meditation to not work for them are encouraged.

Those struggling with mental and behavioral health issues also encouraged. This will be a safe(r), trauma sensitive space.

Four Saturdays, 2 - 4pm
January 6th, 13, 20, 27
