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.

About the Facilitator(s)

Alexis Lee has been an Aquatic Bodyworker since 1996, after training with Harold Dull; creator of Watsu, and Alexander George of Healing Dance, as well Alexis has been a certified teacher through the Worldwide Aquatic Bodywork Association since 1999, and co-taught with Harold while living at Harbin Hot Springs for four years.

With over 2200 hours of training and over 6000 hours of teaching, she brings a balanced approach to the class, with an emphasis on awareness, body mechanics and personal insight, as Watsu is much more than a technique. Alexis also brings NVC communication to the class, having studied 6 years with Marshall Rosenberg and Selwa Said’s unique style. A former Montessori teacher, she brings a new paradigm of teaching with ease, grace, fun, and balance.

“My passion stems from the heart-centered connection I feel floating the person in my arms. I believe a Watsu class can be taught as a Watsu session, more like zenflow.”

$810 Tuition includes lunch Monday through Friday, $510 for Auditors to repeat course, and $300 for just Basic Watsu the 12th and 13th - which includes Monday lunch.

You can contact Alexis Lee at [email protected] for questions concerning content of the class.
