Peruse a variety of videos and photos before, during and after our gong baths and presentations related to sound therapy and personal transformation, captured  at various Yoga Studios, Cancer Wellness Centers, Corporate Events, Churches, Spiritual Centers and other venues, as well as privately arranged workshops and sessions. In December 2014 we began to expand our sound work into Mexico City and surrounding areas in Mexico. In this special training we'll do a series of cardio and core strengthening exercises, alternating the use of static and dynamic muscles, followed by relaxation, breathing and meditation. Meditation does not always have to be in a form of sitting cross-legged with your eyes closed forever. Join us for five days in a complete journey of transformation through hiking, yoga, meditation, connection, and relaxing in Yosemite’s High Sierra. We'll carry only light daypacks with our yoga mats, and there are opportunities for early turn around on hikes where people don’t wish to go the full distance.
Our food is delicious and meals feature recipes from Carole Latimer’s cookbook, Wilderness Cuisine. The word vinyasa can be broken down into its Sanskrit roots to assist us in finding its meaning. Typically, inhalations are linked to upward movements and motions intended to expand the front of the body and create lightness. According to the ashtanga tradition, the purpose of linking the breath with movement (vinyasa) is internal cleansing. The breath used in vinyasa, ujjayi pranayama, creates a vibration across the soft palate of the mouth, warming the breath as it enters the body. While many of the more commonly used vinyasa sequences are based on sun salutations, there are countless other options available.
We begin our practice with anapana –observing where we are, then determining what we want our yoga practice to accomplish. The concept of vinyasa krama can also be applied to our everyday life, whether it is as simple as deciding what to make for dinner or as daunting as deciding on a new career–and then taking the necessary steps toward achieving that goal. It is possible, however, to have a flowing yoga practice that does not incorporate vinyasa krama. Vinyasa flow has become a popular way of practicing yoga for Westerners attracted to the creative, fluid and physically challenging nature of the practice. Classes described as vinyasa flow synchronize the breath with a flowing sequence of postures and typically use transitional vinyasa sequences between sustained postures as well. Ujjayi pranayama (victory breath) is the breathing method used during the flow of asanas in vinyasa classes.


Depending upon your intention, vinyasa may be used to create heat, link asanas, neutralize energetic effects or create psychic energetic effects.

There is no video or photo that can describe or reflect that which occurs within oneself during a transforming gong bath, sound meditation and sound therapy session.
With this group, you will experience physical and mindfulness exercises such as deep stretching, breathing, relaxation and active meditation. Our hikes take us to Glen Aulin High Sierra Camp, past gorgeous waterfalls on the Tuolumne River, to beautiful Cathedral Lakes, and to Elizabeth Lake and Unicorn Peak. A variety of art, meditation, and journaling will be introduced through out this sacred journey giving you an opportunity to connect to the spirit of Yosemite and yourself. Exhalations are tied to movements that either compress the belly, as in forward bends and twists, or ground and stabilize us with downward flowing energy.
The choice of movements typically consists of counterposes that help balance the effects of asanas and clear energy channels. Andrey Lappa is not a conventional vinyasa flow teacher, but this Universal style master yoga teacher from the Ukraine has analyzed vinyasa exhaustively.
After determining our intention, we develop an intelligent sequence of asana, pranayama, meditation or another aspect of yoga that will help lead us toward our goal. The style was developed fairly recently, and Los Angeles Bryan Kest was among the originators. Vinyasa flow often includes components derived from ashtanga yoga such as sun salutations, ujjayi pranayama, bandhas (constrictions of specific muscles and organs to contain energy) and drishti (gaze), yet there are no predetermined asana sequences.
The teacher develops an intelligent class sequence with a specific intention, such as focusing on backbends, working with a specific chakra or creating a certain energetic effect. Ashtanga, power yoga, jivamukti, viniyoga, universal and Iyengar each incorporate vinyasa into their practice.

Meditation is a type of mental training to helping you focus attention, balance your emotions, improve your relationships, and enhance your life. For example, at the beginning of a sun salutation we inhale as we raise our arms to the sky and exhale as we fold forward toward the earth.


Agni is the digestive fire used not only to digest physical food but also experiences and sensations. The linking vinyasas bring the body back to neutral so that one can fully feel the energetic effects of the practice.
In his book, Yoga: Tradition of Unification , Andrey categorizes vinyasas based on direction of movement, number of repetitions, number of moving body parts, speed of motion, symmetrical versus asymmetrical, direction of force, direction of the spine and influence on the spine. We may have an immediate goal such as needing to relax, achieving a specific posture or preparing for meditation. Asanas are encouraged to flow spontaneously from kundalini life force energy and intuitive knowledge of the inner self. Vinyasa flow teachers compose their classes in ways that connect poses with breath-synchronized movements. Vinyasa flow classes may also include other forms of pranayama, but ujjayi is the continuous rhythmic breath that builds heat and provides a mantra of ocean sound to enhance the fluid nature of the practice. I find vinyasa to be a powerful tool for developing internal awareness, as the focus on linking breath to movement draws my attention inward during asana practice. Chicago yoga teacher Paul Weitz states, “When you go through vinyasa you recalibrate the spine, shoulders and hips. For those interested, his book provides detailed explanations and photographs of almost any vinyasa technique imaginable. Or we may have a long-term goal such as conditioning our body or learning how to focus and concentrate. Asanas, vinyasa and pranayama are creatively sequenced to develop internal awareness, build heat and explore energizing effects. The ujjayi breath should be long and deep; this stretching of the breath serves to calm the mind.
In a pose, rather than worrying about what the external physical form looks like, I turn my focus to the nature of my breath.
You are also learning how to control the breath while moving through space and learning how breath initiates movement. Yoga practices incorporating ujjayi are often referred to as moving meditations, because the continuous awareness of the breath helps develop focus and concentration and draws us deeper into our internal sensations.
