Make dreams come true!

My Name is Ryan Thompson, through my life experiences so far I have started to hone in on what I value and what impact I want to have on myself, people and my environment. I have come to the continuing conclusion that I am most inspired and most alive when I am growing my healthy potential and to expand my own possibilities and sharing that journey with others. In this pursuit of knowledge, wisdom and practice I have found yogic studies to be an all encompassing foundation. I feel it very important to have a solid practice and knowledge base root system in which to grow from and that is what I am setting out to achieve. I would like to expand my own inspiration towards what I love to do;…

Shitali Pranayama

Shitali Pranayama Originating from the Sanskrit word shital, “soothing” or “cold,” Shitali Pranayama is also referred to as the “Cooling Breath.” How to Perform Shitali Pranayama: Roll the tongue, which will protrude the tongue slightly beyond the lips. [Note: if this motion of the tongue is not accessible to you, complete Sit Cari Pranayama instead — the benefits are similar]. Once the tongue is rolled, inhale through the mouth, drawing cool air across the surface of tongue tongue. Retain the breath for 4 counts, with the option to tuck the chin toward the chest into Jalandhara Bandha. Notice the cool air as it contacts the heated, moisturized environment within the oral cavity. Release Jalandhara Bandha and exhale through the nose for 6 counts. Expand the breath as comfortable to 4:8, 5:10,…

Water Purification Ceremony

As a profound tool for healing, water purification ceremonies are held periodically throughout training at the most well-known and sacred temples on the entire island. These ceremonies give trainees a deeper understanding of the magical mysteries of Balinese spirituality that represent healing, love, and transformation. After putting on your sarong gifted to you by alchemy of yoga, you will be escorted for a guided tour of the peaceful and ancient site, where you will learn the history of these sacred grounds. Then the ceremony will be conducted by a Mangku (Balinese Priest). While sitting in meditation the priest will prepare some holy water in a vase with flowers and incense while chanting mantras in ancient Sanskrit. Following the mantras, you will be invited to receive a holy water cleansing as…

A Traditional Balinese Dinner!

One of our favorites evenings throughout training is visiting Agung’s ancestral home to learn about the meaning behind the layout and overall design of a traditional Balinese home. You’ll also learn how to make traditional Balinese offerings! We’ll enjoy an incredibly generous dinner buffet with a private traditional Balinese dance performance – a dance-drama that represent stories expressed through elegant movements detailed all the way into the gestures of eyes, fingers, head and hands. These mudras are learned early as Balinese children are taught to dance with their hands even before they can walk! In December 2015 UNESCO recognized 3 forms of Balinese Dance as “intangible cultural heritage.” This is sacred moving meditation at its finest.In this dance tradition the practice is an offering to ask protection from the gods and…

Three Reasons Why Yoga Teacher Training Changes Your Life

1.  TRANSFORMATION HAPPENS FASTER Something extraordinary happens while in a yoga teacher training program that breaks the bonds of ordinary awareness and expands the consciousness of each individual to a level that would otherwise would have taken years of ordinary living to attain.  This acceleration of evolution is mystical, meaning that the explanation of the change is beyond logic and reason.  The term from quantum physics,“quantum leap”, comes to mind.  A quantum leap means “a phenomena where an electron orbiting the nucleus of an atom changes its position without having traversed the space between its old and new orbit and without taking any time to do so.  As scientifically verifiable as this phenomenonis, it is also on the order of a miracle, for science has no explanation how this effect happens.”   This…

What habits are you strengthening​?

We all form habits as we go through life. Yoga teaches us that even our good habits keep us from growing spiritually. This is because habits are by definition an attachment to a pattern of behavior, or a form of dependence. So a key principle of yoga is to break our both our mental and physical attachments. This includes not just our attachments to material objects (like needing chocolate to be happy), but also attachments to only seeing things in one way or repeating the same thoughts over and over expecting a different result, which by the way is the textbook definition of insanity. Yoga gives us a chance to examine our behavioral patterns and realize that our habits, even the good ones, keep us stuck. Only then can we…
