Yoga in Paradise 2017, Week 1

Lynne Minton

January 7, 2017 - January 14, 2017

Yoga in Paradise 2017! Enjoy a relaxing and fun-filled Yoga Vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii at Kalani. This will be an all level group with and easy to moderate pace, plenty of instruction in adaptations,  and alternatives to postures as needed.  Those with more experience will have opportunity for more challenge.

About the Facilitator(s)

Lynne took her first yoga class while in college, at the YMCA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Her first instructor and mentor, Trudy Davis, encouraged her to teach when she moved to Alaska in 1977. She enrolled in the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco’s Teacher Training Program the summer of 1980. Encouraged by Donald Moyer, she attended her first yoga Intensive at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India in 1981. She was certified to teach yoga by BKS Iyengar in 1984. Subsequent trips to Pune followed in 1988 and 1997.

Lynne founded the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 1982 in Anchorage, Alaska and oversaw  its growth and development into a thriving center with 20 plus instructors for the next 26 years. She  started the Inner Dance Teacher Training program in 1999 which  trained over 100 yoga teachers in the 8 years of her  oversight of the program. Lynne sold the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 2008. She now travels the country and the world teaching yoga wherever she is invited.

Lynne  draws inspiration from yoga on and off the mat,  attending local classes and  sharing practice with others. She honors her  teachers of  the Iyengar  tradition, Judith Lasater, Donald Moyer, and Fr. Joe Pereira. Self-Realizaion Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda's organization, to which she was first exposed in 1978 is another continuing source of upliftment.

Yogananda says, "The true purpose of life is to realize one's Self as wisdom and bliss". Patanjali's yoga sutra book II, sutra 41 (Light on Yoga Sutras, BKS Iyengar translation) states, "When the body is cleansed, the mind purified and the senses controlled, joyful awareness needed to realize the inner Self, also comes." My mission statement is to help myself and others to awaken joyful awareness through the practices of yoga; asanas that cleanse the body, pranayama that calms the mind, concentration that controls the senses, and meditation for realizing the Inner Self.

Lynne grew up in Wisconsin. Her love of travel and degree in Environmental Geology brought her to play and work in Alaska in 1975. That year she met future husband, Jim, and together they made Alaska home. They have been married since 1978. Together they enjoy camping, flying, overseas travel and their wonderful community of family and friends. Lynne also loves to sing, hula, play her ukelele,  garden, bike and hike. She is in the process of relocating to Prescott, Arizona.

Lila Vinyasa 300 Hour YTT in Hawaii, Module 2

Clara Roberts-Oss

November 16, 2017 - November 25, 2017


We will cover the following in Module Two of 300 Hour Lila Vinyasa Yoga:

About the Facilitator(s)

Clara Roberts-Oss
Movement has always been sacred to me. I have danced my whole life, whether it’s been grooving to a good song, taking dance classes or flowing through a vinyasa, my body can’t get enough. Through movement, I feel as though I’m communing with the Divine. I took my first vinyasa class in 2000 at Jivamukti Yoga Center. I had a feeling of arriving home. We moved through postures seamlessly with an emphasis of breath-body connection. The class gave me what the dance world didn’t, an emphasis on the internal journey. I received my 200 hour Vinyasa Certification with Lauren Hanna at Sonic Yoga NYC in 2003. I met Shiva Rea shortly thereafter and again, felt as though I had come home. Shiva had created a language for the kind of movement I’ve been doing my whole life. She, too, understood the idea of fluidity. Our bodies yearn to move like water and when we do, our bodies hum with excitement.  I’ve completed my 300 hour Prana Flow Certification with Shiva.

I have been leading retreats for over 8 years both in the BC region and internationally. I was part of Sonic Yoga’s NYC 200 Hour Teacher Training in 2005-2006. I have been part of Semperviva’s 300 Hour Teacher Training faculty in BC since 2007. I started my own school of yoga, Lila School of Vinyasa Yoga, in  2013. I teach workshops on the subtle body, chakras, mantra, meditation and asana worldwide.

I thank all my teachers for sharing their passion of this practice with me: David Life for opening my heart, Stacey Brass for her minute cues that have changed me life, Uma for opening my voice, Dana Flynn for throwing out all the rules and inspiring me to do the same, Constantine Darling for showing me another way, and Paul Ortega for reminding me we are ALL the cosmic dancer.

I invite you to be playful in your practice, remembering that lightness is found in spirit!

Shivanad Oss, Guest Teacher
I 'chanced' upon Joseph Campbell's "Hero of a Thousand Faces" fifty years ago in the stacks at Loyola College in Montreal. I 'chanced' upon Carlos Casteneda's "Journey to Itxlan" five years later. Because of Campbell, I recognized that Don Juan, the Yaqui shaman, in "Itxlan" was living mythologically. I studied with Brizilian shamans for seven years & led my own circles for about ten.
Mythology helped me leave the village of the predigested experiences of my culture & enter the mystic forest of original experience. The world is all forgetting & the heart is a rage of directions. For me, living myth unites the heart & the world is lifted into its place.

Shakti Sunfire, Luna Breeze, Gail O'Brien, Valencia of Twisted Orbit, and Bags of Twisted Orbit

January 21, 2017 - January 28, 2017

Produced by Shakti Sunfire and Luna Breeze

About the Facilitator(s)

Gail O'Brien, In-Depth Instructor

Gail has trained at Greentop Circus School, Belfast Circus School and with top level professional teachers around the world. She is a dynamic contemporary hoop performer. She uses her background in physiotherapy to break down movement patterns giving her a unique edge in teaching workshops and classes.

  Valencia of Twisted Orbit, In-Depth Teacher

This versatile, vivacious, vaudevillian vixen, Valentina dazzles audiences around the world with her unique vision of circus dance fusion. Sharing her magic in both performance and workshops is her passion and drive. Valentina is a second generation belly dancer who was raised in the Los Angeles underground art scene by her mother, Leela, a successful theatrical belly dance icon. Valentina now blends belly dance with hooping, fire, burlesque and hoop juggling. Her ability to seamlessly combine these art forms gives her a provocative style unlike any other. She is the leader of The Hoop Unit, the Vaudeville Vixens, one half of Twisted Orbit, a hoop fabricator and an event producer.

Bags of Twisted Orbit, In-Depth Teacher

Bags is a professional teacher and performer from the UK who has been formally trained at Circomedia – Europe’s leading centre for contemporary circus and physical theatre. He has taught hooping at prominent events all over the UK, Europe and the US as well as being a teacher on Hoop City and Hooping University. He founded the Bristol Hoop Massive and the UK hoop website the Hoop Hub and has won or been nominated for multiple Hoopies and Revolvies (this year he jointly won the Male Hooper of the Year Hoopie!) He is an innovative and multi-disciplined performer who has a strong passion for circus in all it’s forms – but just at the moment you’re unlikely to find him anywhere other than inside a hoop!


Shakti Sunfire, In-Depth Producer 

An internationally recognized movement guide and an advocate of the Earth, Shakti Sunfire blends her deep love of conscious dance, classical Tantra, yoga, mythology, ecology, and the study of many nature-based traditions into inspiring thematic explorations of Soul.

Hoopstress for the last 8 years running, Shakti's focus falls on the merging world of somatic movement, free flow dance, and tech in the hoop. She is inspired in the creation of creative community space and inside the family VIBE of the hoop community. In-Depth is her baby, and the best party she'll ever throw. At In-Depth Shakti acts as visionary glue, space-holder, dance and yoga teacher and mama. She loves every moment and all the friends made along the way!

You might have seen her dancing on the Wanderlust Festival main stage, or on the cover of Yoga Journal. A true rolling stone, Shakti teaches workshops, leads retreats, and performs all over the world. The visionary woman in her has founded The Rhythm Way, and gotten her published and featured in countless books, articles, images and DVDs. A passionate writer, Shakti dives deep into human experience, exposing universal connection and poignant synchronicity through mytho-poetic narrative. You can find more of her work on Rebelle Society, Elephant Journal and in Origin Magazine.

Learn more about Shakti at The Rhythm Way.


Luna Breeze, In-Depth Producer

Exotic, energetic, and entertaining, Luna  extends far beyond the acrobatic. As a hoop dancer, her choreography blurs the line between entertainment and performance art - a focus on the magic of illusion and the interaction of hoop and dancer. She is known for her fusion of modern dance, tradition circus skills, and musicality within her dance. As a teacher she is known for her accessibility, goofy sense of humor and serious attitude of positive empowerment through the ring.

Luna has traveled to India via Samsung Mobile to promote the Olympic games through performance, performed at the 2014 IJA Cascade of Stars, and has worked with acclaimed contemporary circus companies such as Pendulum Aerial Arts, Quixotic Fusion, Madison House, Periplo Circus Convention, and many others.
