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.

The Gift of Grief: Embracing Life and Loss With Love

Judy Dolmatch and Christy Ceraso

November 18, 2015 - November 24, 2015

To live life fully means we must confront and integrate the experience of loss. The death of loved ones, changes in relationships, impairments of health and abilities, ending professional roles, seeking a sense of place and purpose... all are passages that bring our mortality into focus and invoke grief. These passages ask us to let go of what was and discover what is true now.

About the Facilitator(s)

Judy Dolmatch, MSW, LCSW. Judy is a clinical social worker in private practice in Ashland, OR. She is a nationally certified practitioner of psychodrama and group psychotherapy since 1985. In addition to working with clients around issues of loss, transition and empowerment, she recently cared for her mother at the end of her life through hospice. Her fascination with how humans make sense of their lives has inspired her to lead workshops in improvisational theatre for personal growth and social awareness. She is a co-founder of ARTrageous Camps (www.artrageouscamp.com), a retreat that combines personal rites of passage, creativity and community. Judy believes that living fully is an improvisational art, and when supported by consciousness and compassion, this art is a path to embracing our mortality.

Christy Ceraso, LMT, TARA Approach Practitioner, BA. has been a healing arts practitioner and bodyworker for over 20 years. She has focused her studies on human development, somatic psychology, and spirituality, and is currently earning an MS in Counseling.   She is the co-founder of Wild Women Awakening, a retreat program that also incorporates eco-psychology and expressive art therapy.  Christy cultivates relationships with the elements of nature, widening the scope of connections that can help us reclaim awareness, empowerment, and authentic self-expression. Her work facilitates personal insight into how our wise bodies express our deepest feelings and needs and are the foundation of our spiritual connection and renewal.  Her specialties are healing past traumas that block our energy and inhibit us from fully living life, creating clarity out of confusion, and supporting the graceful navigation of challenging life transitions.
