A Special Solstice Blissology Weekend with Yogi, Blissologist and Surfer Eoin Finn!
Friday, June 22nd - Sunday, June 24th, 2012
Friday, June 22nd ~ 7 - 9pm ~ Vinyasa Earth Puja ~ $45+hst
Make your Yoga practice a ritual to honour our relationship to the earth at this crucial time in our planet’s existence. The number one thing we can do for our health is to experience connection with the earth. In this inspiring and unique workshop with Yogi, Blissologist & Ocean Worshipper Eoin Finn, experience true interconnectedness, beginning with our own body-mind, extending to our personal relationships, our communities and how we treat our larger environment. Understanding our linkage to the earth is good for us both physiologically as well as psychologically, and the earth wins too as we want to protect what we love and revere.
Expect a vigorous and fluid vinyasa practice infused with lightheartedness and depth, followed by Eoin's unique earth-body meditation to leave us feeling plugged in to the source of deep awe, joy and bliss.
Saturday, June 23rd ~ 1 - 6pm ~ Revolutionary Yoga: Align Your Practice, Align Your Life ~ $110+hst
When someone has mastered something they can experience great results with effortless ease. This workshop will revitalize and reconnect your Yoga practice, allowing you to become a master of Yoga in the gravitational field using key, revolutionary Blissology Yoga concepts.
Suitable to both beginners and advanced yogis, this is a course that moves from fundamental yoga principles presented in a unique way with plenty of juiciness for teachers as well as longtime students of yoga. You will learn how to balance steadiness with ease, how to relax into gravity and how to surf its currents. Even though there is a lot of great knowledge, this workshop will also be fun and deeply transformational.
Expect to tackle the intricacies of downward dog, standing balances, handstand, forearm balance and more. You will be surprised when you have this knowledge how easy some of the most challenging poses can be and how deep and therapeutic even basic poses are. Your practice will never be the same.
Sunday, June 24th ~ 11am - 2pm ~ The Pursuit of Happy Hips ™: Theory and Vinyasa practice ~ $65+hst
Suitable for All Levels of Students, from beginner to advanced Yoga practioners.
The energy of the hip area can be alive and vital, or dull and dormant. The hips are the connecting point between the upper and lower body. Furthermore, the hip area is where we experience significant tightness, both from the stresses of our sporting activities as well as from the inactivity of sitting in chairs for more hours in a week than our ancestors could have imagined possible.
Building from the foundation we experience in the Yin and Yang of Yoga, we will continue on to explore pelvic anatomy and the psychology of the hips. Find out what rules we need to follow to help keep the yoga practice safe and beneficial to our physiology, while also learning how many rules actually restrict us. Then participate in Eoin’s flowing series of poses that will leave you feeling blissful and ecstatic.
Balance the discipline of a hot and sweaty practice with the chilled West Coast, “play yoga” attitude.
This workshop is taught in Eoin’s All levels, All Good Approach, with modifications for beginners and plenty of juiciness for intermediates and advanced yogis. We are talking freedom, baby!
Register for the entire weekend and save! Entire weekend price: $190+hst (regular price $220!)
Eoin Finn, BA, ERYT is a yogi, surfer and blissologist who has been teaching his unique and transformative approach to Yoga and Blissology across the world.
Eoin’s passion for spreading his vision of body and mind coexisting in harmony with nature and community has led him to be featured in the “we like this guy” section of Oprah Magazine. An avid athlete and surfer, Eoin has worked with hundreds of pro athletes. It is his love of the ocean and the creatures within it that allowed Eoin to find the courage to follow the words of his greatest hero Joseph Campbell and “follow his Bliss” making the move from his highly popular yoga classes in Vancouver, BC; to the remote, wild and stunningly beautiful Canadian surf paradise of Tofino, BC. This powerful connection to Nature infuses all his teachings.
A vinyasa yoga experience with Eoin emphasizes the intelligent alignment of joints so movements in yoga and all of life’s activities are fluid and bio-mechanically sound. This way our yoga practice becomes a tool to allow the body to function well now, and for years to come.
In 2001 he founded a movement called Blissology which is the art of tuning into the force that makes us feel connected to each other and the planet; and using it to guide us so that we achieve our own goals while minimizing our impact on the web of life.
Love is the ultimate renewable resource
