• Sequencing Basics for 60, 75 and 90 minute classes
• Teaching from a Taoist Point of View
• Practicing Teaching, using an evidence-based Feedback structure rooted in observation and free from evaluation (meaning – there will be no ‘constructive criticism’ – you can’t imagine how liberating this method is. For real).
• Distinguishing between Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and the Floor Series in the Krishnamacharya and Gosh Lineages
• Emotional Alchemy – Foundational Self-Healing Practices that you can incorporate into your daily life and your classes.
And we’ll do some fun and insightful group processes and explorations aimed towards creating a lived experience of some of the most basic and profound aspects of Taoist Philosophy

Sound Journey Through Gongs and Himalayan Bowls with Crown of Eternity
3 Sessions: 2:00-3:30 | 4:00-5:30 | 6:00-7:30
Cost per session: $20 in advance | $25 there afterJoin gong lovers, yogis, and healers, Gallina and Mike Tamburo from Pittsburgh’s Crown of Eternity as you vibrate and tune into your inner self-healer, inviting a state of harmony and bliss. Bathe in waves of sound from multiple gongs, bells and metal singing bowls. The deep complex harmonics of multiple gongs quickly silence the mind and entrain the brain into a spontaneous state of deep meditation. The rhythmic sound oscillations of therapy grade Himalayan bowls placed on or around the body penetrate into the tissues and are often experienced as a full body sound massage that allows us to let go—letting go of stress, worries, anxieties, doubt, fears and feelings that have a negative effect on our health and life. Listeners often describe out of body experiences, seeing beautiful colors behind their eyes, past life impressions, expanded awareness and higher states of consciousness. We will begin to prepare the body to enter a state of healing and receptivity through the sacred practices of guided meditation, breathwork, or deep listening. We will then relax deeply to the sounds of multiple gongs for a vibrational experience like no other!!!Please bring a yoga mat, blanket or cushion for your comfort for an extended period of lying on the floor. A limited amount of chairs will be available, however the session is best received lying down.
