Meditation Immersion
Danny Brewington
Jan 26-28, 2018


This workshop is open to the public. NO Prerequisites required.  Anyone with an interest in meditation can join.  This module is part of Sanctuary's 300 hr YTT program and counts as 20 elective hours towards completion of the 300 hr program. 


In this module, students and teachers will take an extensive look at meditation, exploring the layers of the mind and consciousness itself. The course will add depth to a personal practice and demonstrate methods of incorporating it into the classroom. We’ll look at ways to stimulate brain waves and enter the deeper levels of meditation, using time-honored techniques from the masters and current developments in brain research, referencing the work of Dr. David Hawkins, Daniel Goleman, Rick Hanson, Anna Wise, and Alan Watts, to name a few. It’s a heavy subject, but we’ll have fun!

Our Points of Focus for the weekend are:

  • Understanding the subtle dimensions of breath 
  • Our senses and heightened states of awareness
  • Mantras, mudras, and other focusing tools 
  • Mental and emotional blocks and how to work with them 
  • Creating positive change, cultivating compassion, opening to more creativity, and healing the mind/body structure. 
  • Formless, subjective experience 
  • Meditation and the world of quantum science

Yoga Nidra w/Danny Brewington
January 26, 2018
7:45 - 9:00 pm


Cost: $25

Need to de-stress? Do you have difficulty relaxing or trouble sleeping? Can’t get those disturbed thoughts and emotions to calm down? Our hectic lives overwhelm our nervous systems—the daily barrage to our senses makes our bodies tense and our minds agitated. Over time, this can have a detrimental effect on our health. An ancient antidote is Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep.” It is a powerful technique to reach an extremely relaxed state of mind—highly alert, yet void of content.

In this class we’ll reduce tension, anxiety, and de-stress completely, allowing our nervous systems to be restored. Healing occurs at an unconscious level as the cells of the body relax deeply and the mind returns to its natural state, fully aware of the present moment. 

Please wear comfortable clothing—you will be supported in savasana for most of the class.

This workshop is for all levels!

This practice is a GAME CHANGER!

Faith.... Is the Intention and Attention to the Star that Draws You.... – David Whyte



INTRODUCTION

Why is the interest in restorative yoga on the rise? It works!!!

Created in 2003, Anjali Restorative Yoga is a highly regarded and respected, deep nurturing style of yoga. In this practice of thoughtful and intentional rest, the body is supported by bolsters, pillows, and blankets. The mind and breath are guided through gentle images and practices. This practice is a GAME CHANGER!!!

The practice of Anjali Restorative Yoga teaches a level of presence in the moment, as it is actually occurring. This reality-based practice brings the student moment by moment, in tune with one’s ability to notice and relax: bodily sensations, the breath, the mind, and the emotions. In this practice, one does do not strive to empty the mind of thoughts or stop the mind from thinking in order to access this meditative, present moment state. Rather, one bravely connects the mind to the sensations, health, and needs of the body. This uses the connection of the mind, body, and heart to encourage an innate power of healing.

In its gentle appearance, this is a warrior practice. This is a mindful based practice, maintaining supported postures for sustained periods of time with the additional of guided meditations, invoked imagery and productive breathing practice. As mindful-based practice, it attempts to continue to draw the student back into the present moment from the past stories and out of the future worries. This done over time and with thoughtful repetition, it is nothing short of a brave, warrior practice.

Insights will eventually overcome worries, as the essence of ease finds a stronghold over stress in the present moment, unaffected by the past or drawn into the drama of the future.

Of course this will take practice. As I have many, many time, in many classes, trainings and intensives, “It is not that you practice. It is what. You do not glean a great deal from showing up to any practice and checking out rather than checking in.”

To experience positive and consistent change and benefit, one must show up and put in the effort, even in this practices apparent ease, there will be calls to action to return from unmindful wandering and dramatic landscapes of fear doubt and worrisome thoughts that strive to short circuit the effectiveness of the meditative practice. The e ort here will be to show up and breathe in postures, through the discomfort, into the presence of racing or self-loathing thoughts. The e ort may also show up when a particular part of the body is feeling physical strain and is drawing focus away from one’s ability to breathe smoothly. By learning to not avoid the pain one may experience a release from the pain. This can be accomplished when one utilizes intention and the corresponding attention to: send the breath, direct the intentional and though- filled qualities of muscular relaxation to the area, while working with the instructor to support the area in each asana therapeutically.

Furthermore, this practice weaves a though-provoking and positive theme through out the session. It therefore, engages and provokes the emotional and the thinking mind out of predetermined or ruminative patterns and into a healing and regenerative capacity. It can be challenging to ease the body, calm the breath, and then feel one’s ability to let the body and the breath actually soften, ease, and nourish the mind. However, this art woven carefully with science is geared towards creating positive change, a sense of wholeness, connection and confidence in the practitioner.

This comes at the expense of him or her actively making the choice to feel good and calm, healthy and whole by giving up patterns of stress being a means of effectiveness and the chronic (though perhaps, professionally effective) proficient ability to react to stress rather than to respond to the same stress stimuli. One pattern cultivates health and wellness. The other is not sustainable, as it creates embodied patterns of inflammation and chronic stress. Stress is the leading cause of disease.

It’s not that one will live in a stress free world: it will be how one will engage stress, respect stress and potentially let it work to benefit one’s state of health.

Signature “Spinal Series” Sequence

This set sequence utilizes soft cushions, bolsters, and blankets to optimize support, alignment, and relaxation of the spine. The student is guided through nine specific poses, each drawing from the one before it and offering the embodied lesson to the next pose. As such, this well-studied and time-tested sequence sends the student through a therapeutic and pause-filled Vinyasa of the spine in its seven different directions of movement: extension, side-bend right, side bend twist, backbend, forward bend, twist right, twist left. The physical e ect is a careful realignment of the spine into its most natural four curves and gently strengthening and stretching the muscles that that support those four natural curves.

May 11 - 13, 2018 w/Daphne & Tom


The World of Vital Energy is the unseen, but often felt through integration and manipulation of our physical body to understand the hidden powers of the subtle body. This “felt experience” is known as élan vital or vital spark and is also considered the essence of the soul. In this module we will explore this this essence through physical postures, philosophical study and first hand experience in the potent quality of pancha-vayus. As a result, we will strive to create new patterns about our internal control of and over our own élan vital.

  • Understanding Kundalini, the dynamic latent power
  • The Primary Bandha: Mulabandha, Uddiyana, Jalandara
  • Maha Mudra
  • Review of the panca-vayus
  • How to use the vayus to our advantage
  • Pranayama techniques and kriyas, including nadi cleansing/balancing
  • Chakra Movement Meditation
  • Yogic physiology
This is a movement based module centered around arm balances, inversions and transitions.

June is LGBT Pride Month. To celebrate Pride and “Radical Self Acceptance,” Sanctuary is offering a donation class this Saturday, June 24 at 12:15 pm taught by Melissa Eltringham & Danny Brewington. And the fabulous Jimmy Joyner will be assisting the class.

What is Pride? 
LGBT Pride Month is celebrated each year in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots. On June 28, 1969, members of the New York City gay community, many of whom were transgender, united over the course of six days in spontaneous demonstrations against routine police intimidation and raids, overpowering them and inspiring activist groups to gather around the city, nation, and all over the world with a common goal of creating safe spaces for queer people to come together and be themselves – a concept unheard of in those days. 

Why Yoga? Through the practice of yoga, we gain clarity about ourselves through svadyaya (Self study), extend kindness toward ourselves and others, and develop greater awareness of the way we relate to the world around us. Through the practice of yoga, we are united. We are one. 

We are celebrating YOU - exactly as you are. Join us to embrace Radical Self Acceptance as a shining example to everyone around you! 


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

CORE MODULE 1 (30 hours)
Advanced Sequencing: The Sacred Architecture of a Class
w/Daphne Larkin and Tom Larkin
Sept 7 - 9, 2018


The focus of this module will be on the evolution of a class from the carefully placed intention and the first unified breath to the stillness of savasana. We will explore the relationships between asanas and the deliberate unfolding of a sequence to a peak. During the module, we’ll use a full spectrum of asanas to create simple to complex sequences and learn techniques for skillfully guiding students through movement in all directions. Learn to add depth and dimension to your classes to take students deeper into poses and more complex asanas with ease.

  • Break down krama within a pose/sequence/class
  • Sequences that move from front to back of mat
  • Techniques for guiding students through complex sequences
  • Peak poses - understanding their purpose/function/path to the peak
  • Development of sequences during the module; expanding sequences in a variety of directions for different peaks within the same family
  • Sequences for mixed level classes

About Gray Bear
Nestled in the rolling forest of the beautiful West Tennessee hills, Gray Bear Holistic Retreat Center is a pause along your path, fulfilling the ideal environment for health, relaxation, and yoga. Our richly warm, rustic retreat reveals the empirical healing of nature. Pure air commands the awareness of breath. Pure water reflects the image of serenity. Stone hearths with roaring fires, and long twilight walks will complete the richness found in the blending of naure and yoga.

The center features one hundred fifty acres of rolling hills, and thick forest for hiking, natural springs for reflection, a crisp shower in our waterfall, sacred moments in our hand-built wood-fired sauna, the silence of nature’s symphony, clean air, clear water and a life free of distractions. While the lodging is intentionally rustic, the staff makes sure guests feel comfortable and right at home. Most rooms are double occupancy with shared baths. Our commitment in the kitchen is strong: vegetarian meals prepared with love and whole, organic ingredients.

Core Module 5 (30 Hours)

The Yana and Katha of the Devas - Walk a Mile in Shiva’s Bare Feet 


Nov 30 - Dec 2, 2018 
with Tom Larkin

In this module we dive deep into the journey (yana) and tales (katha) of the gods themselves. Our study is rooted in the philosophies and mythologies of the universe as seen from the yoga tradition. We will learn through exploration stories and iconography how the vision of the Paramatman (Supreme Self) is obtained by learning about the underlying correlation and dharmic connection between God’s plan and our vision of all things.

We will dive into the storied worlds of the Vedas, Upanishads, Ramayana, Bhagavad-Gita, and stories of kings and sages, monkeys and gods. We will embrace the ebb and flow of verse, sometimes like a frenzied dance (tandava), as we open to a world rich in knowledge of a deeper intelligence.

This is primarily a lecture based module, but be prepared to move and experience the inner science of the verse.
