Radiant Warrior Yoga Course: Flow
“Being in Harmony with Life” (an exploration of Taoist Yoga, including QiGong and Yin Yoga, and the practical Wisdom of the Tao)
The next Radiant Warrior Yoga Course: ‘Flow’, will be led by Christopher. This course has a similar format to our previous courses. Each class in this 10-week course will have physical movement, weekly lessons and discussion in class on practical applications of the wisdom in the lessons. We learn with and from each other.
It will meet Wednesday evenings from 5:45-7:15pm, starting January 23. Prior to the course starting, on any Wednesday evening, 5:45-7pm, you are welcome to join our chi gong / yin yoga class as a guest and experience an introduction to this new course along with the movement practices.
For the movement side, we’ll bring together two new technologies: Chi Gung and Yin Yoga. The dynamic, flowing movements in a Chi Gung (aka QiGong) sequence cultivate ease of breath, health and vitality. The second half will be a deep dive into on-the-ground Yin Yoga. Yin Yoga flows deeply into the connective tissue, bringing healing and relief to low back or hip pain, in a quiet, meditative practice.
Together, these two healing modalities will generate natural health and great vitality in the body.
On the lesson side, we’ll be opening up study of one of the world’s foremost philosophical systems, the Tao. (Pronounced ‘Dao’)
Our book for this course is by my dear teacher, the late Wayne Dyer, called ‘Change your thoughts, change your life’ - Living the Wisdom of the Tao.
We will be selecting lessons from this book and learning about them together during the educational portion of our course. Please order this book so you have it for the course.
Wayne says, "This is a book that will forever change the way you look at your life, and the result will be that you’ll live in a new world aligned with nature. Writing this book changed me forever, too. I now live in accord with the natural world and feel the greatest sense of peace I’ve ever experienced. I’m so proud to present this interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, and offer the same opportunity for change that it has brought me."
“Each chapter is designed for actually living the Tao or the Great Way today. Some of the chapter titles are "Living with Flexibility," "Living Without Enemies," and "Living by Letting Go." Each of the 81 brief chapters focuses on living the Tao and concludes with a section called "Doing the Tao Now."

MEET OUR OTHER RADIANT WARRIOR COURSES:
Radiant Warrior Yoga 1: CENTER
”get centered, live calmly”
In the first course of the series, running now, Christopher teaches a moderate Qigong and hatha yoga set that everyone can do, purifying breathwork to energize the body or calm the mind (or both!), and instinctive meditations to connect you to your inner calm.
Radiant Warrior Yoga 1 teaches all aspects of the path of yoga as taught in the yoga sutras in a very practical way. And, we'll show you flexible ways to practice these effective techniques at home - in as little as 5 minutes a day!
This course will likely be offered again in the SPRING.
The focus of this course is to open, stretch, and strengthen the entire body, in as little as a half hour a day. We have selected poses that most people can practice, regardless of age or fitness, and teach them mindfully so they can be practiced safely in the studio or at home with confidence and ease.
In the process, you’ll have the opportunity to
Heal from physical and emotional pain
Deepen in present moment awareness
Increase connection and reverence for your body
Strengthen your body, correct poor posture and find relief from back pain
The body, when stretched and exercised, experiences itself as its inherent Goodness
“Warriorship is a continual journey. To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life.”
― Chögyam Trungpa
About Intuitive Meditation:
We approach teaching meditation, by dispelling and debunking myths about meditation, that have incorrectly taught that meditation is about stopping the thoughts.
Everyone can meditate. We have taught hundreds of people how to experience the joy and freedom of meditation, gently and in a lighthearted way. Mindfulness practices and intuitive meditations are key tools for supporting a healthy mind.
The mind, when rested, abides in its inherent Goodness.
About Radiant Warrior Breathwork:
You will learn a series of purifying breathwork exercises which clear physical and emotional obstructions in the body. This frees the breath to enhance the flow of life energy.
Through regular and sustained practice of the Radiant Warrior breathwork you can infuse your body with vitality, your life with enthusiasm and your mind with joy.
Radiant Warrior Yoga Course 2: Energize
‘Change your Energy, Change your Life’
COURSE RUNNING NOW, NEXT COURSE DATE TBD SPRING 2019
Jeannie O’Neill teachings this course based on the science of Kundalini Yoga. You don’t need to have taken the previous course to register for this one. No prior yoga experience required. Read her personal invitation to you…
If you are looking for a deeper dive into your personal spiritual journey in a yoga class, this course is for you.
In this transformational course you will learn to awaken and energize your mind, body and soul.
This course will incorporate breathwork and poses from the practices and systems of Kundalini yoga.
New to Kundalini Yoga? Here is a quote from Kundalini yoga teacher Kia Miller:
"I often say to students that you cannot stay the same when you practice Kundalini Yoga. The very nature of what we do is to awaken the energy of consciousness, to practice in a way that sheds light on our self-imposed limitations, and invites us to think out of the box and develop our intuitive mind. Being able to live from our intuitive mind is one of the main goals of a Kundalini practitioner."
In the Radiant Warrior Yoga: Energize, you'll experience breath, meditation, chanting AND moving the body.
You'll learn to be responsive to potentially stressful situations by increasing the resiliency of your nervous system and connecting to the power within you.
At the end of each class, you will leave feeling:
