About the Facilitator(s)

Ella Luckett
Ella Luckett, founder of “Jai Yoga”, has been teaching yoga for 14 years and is certified through some of the world’s leading contemporary yoga teachers including Sharon Gannon, David Life of JivaMukti, Shiva Rea of Prana Yoga and Trance Dance and with Larry Schultz in Ashtanga Yoga.  For 8 years Ella has been a member of the The Yoga Society of New York at Ananda Ashram where she studies with devotees of Shri Bramhanada Saraswati, including Joan Suval.  She practices Mantra meditation under the instruction of Gadahara Pandit, "Urban Monk,", as well as Music and Kirtan through Dave Stringer. Ella founded Jai Yoga in 2008 and now leads, classes, workshops, Yoga Teacher Trainings New York City yoga studio, Jai Yoga Arts, as well as in locations around the world. Jai Yoga is a dynamic, breath based, vinyasa flow coupled with contemplative wisdom from the yoga sutras, and many sources of eastern philosophy. Jai Yoga has two core principles. The first is “Energetic Alignment”: Alignment comes from within, and happens naturally, with single pointed mental focus, and abundant and tamed breath. The second is that yoga is truly about relationships. The point of the practice is to bring strength, flexibility and love to your relationship with yourself, your family, friends, co-workers and world. This does not mean becoming passively peaceful. It means living positively, truthfully, open, and free.

Basil Jones
yoga teacher, spiritual activist

Basil's interest in yoga began when he worked as a chiropractic assistant in NYC in 1995. After seeing hundreds of patients per month, he began to feel that wellness stretched beyond the body. Basil questioned whether energetic patterns unintentionally held by people such as, “clinging to tension,” “shallow breathing,” and, “dis-ease,” could be replaced with time tested techniques from the practices of varied traditions of yoga that allowed the individual to rebuild patterns of wellness. He went on to pursue studies in yoga philosophy, postures, and energetics.

In 2005 Basil co-created the Aer Yoga Studio and Wellness Center in Upper Westchester NY. The studio expanded quickly to include holistic massage and acupressure and added an organic café and juice bar selling products that supported sustainable agriculture, bio-dynamic farming and locally grown fresh foods. Recognizing the need to bring the benefits of yoga to include the community of people that favored health clubs over yoga studios, Basil additionally created and directed a yoga program for the Saw Mill Club from 2005-2009.

In mid 2008 Basil went on to pursue an independent teaching career and created Basil Yoga, where he continues to teach and bring the yoga community of the area together at the historic Union Hall in North Salem NY. He is an advocate for the non-for profit group Green Chimneys which supports the nurturing and development of children, animals and wildlife, and organic farming.

Inspirations: Through his personal journey exploring all facets of yoga, Basil has been awakened by the teachings and gives thanks to Patanjali, Swami Satchidananda, Osho, Sharon Gannon, David Life, BKS Iyengar, David Swenson, Seane Corn, and Dharma Mittra. His clients include celebrity TV talk show hosts, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actors, international fitness gurus, carpenters, and everyday people. Basil has appeared on the Martha Stewart Show and is featured in her publications. Since beginning his teaching career in 1999, Basil's path has brought him through certifications, close studies and alignments with Integral Yoga, Jivamukti Yoga, David Swenson and Seane Corn.

Yoga in Paradise, Week 1

Lynne Minton

January 9, 2016 - January 16, 2016

Yoga in Paradise 2016! 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.
