Sustainable Yoga for Life
This weekend workshop unfolds the practice of Sustainable Vinyasa, a medium paced flow practice designed to balance your physical and mental strength, stability, clarity, mobility. Based on the long view of Sustainability, these vinyasa practices will energize and enhance you today as well as expand your capacity to move, breath and live well in the future. Sustainable Vinyasa, grounded in the practice of Mindfulness, helps us care for ourselves in a way that naturally helps us care for others and our whole world.

Sustainable Yoga: Slow Flow for Life SATURDAY 12:00 - 2:30 PM
Sustainable yoga is a practice of working with all the ingredients of your life, as you are and as you change. Cyndi will talk about sustainability, boredom, mindfulness and mendfulness. The dynamic sequencing of Cyndi’s medium-paced Slow Flows and three variations of savasana will focus on clarifying methods of rotation, extension, contraction and receptivity. Taking time to observe the effects of our yoga actions helps us have agency in our practice and our life, now and in the future.

Gathering the Threads of Attention SATURDAY 3:30 - 6:00 PM
We will toggle between warming vinyasas, walking meditation, pranayama and bright attention; threading awareness throughout each different activity. This active class will involve sitting, lying, rocking and rolling, twisting and using props to invert. Several downward dogs will pop up, but no standing up on your legs poses will happen this evening. Yes, you will sweat. And the uniqueness of this class will leave you feeling nimble, fresh and clear.

Mindfulness of Body SUNDAY 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Mindfulness of Body is an integrated mind-breath-body training practice which teaches us to fall back into the simplicity of each moment. Cyndi will unfold the traditional layers of this powerful Buddhist practice in mini-talks on Sati or Mindfulness: Establishing Presence of Mind, Contemplating Externally, Impermanence and Insight. Meditation practice will sandwich a slow-flow asana practice focussing on connections, transitions, presence and your own mind on motion. Standing poses, floor work, backbends, working on our hands, going upside down and turning inside out — find out what yoga feels like when it grows from a practice of arriving in every step.

Practice as Refuge, Not Escape SUNDAY 1:30 - 4:00 PM
Sometimes our motivation to practice is strongest when we feel overwhelmed, directionless and ungrounded. Although yoga is meant to a path to awakening, we may find that we are using practice to escape from reality. In this workshop, Cyndi offers Three Tenets and Four Guidelines, which we will explore through lecture, discussion, pranayama, asana and meditation, enabling you to transform stress, fear, confusion and boredom into confidence, security and kindness; to feel grounded even when your world is upside down.

Cyndi Lee is the first female Western yoga teacher to fully integrate yoga asana and Tibetan Buddhism in her practice and teaching. Founder of NYC’s OM yoga Center (1998-2012), a mecca for yogis worldwide, Cyndi is one of the most influential international yoga teachers and has trained thousand of yoga teachers throughout the US, Asia, and Europe. Her digital courses include Restorative TT, Meditation TT, Taking Refuge in the Body and Slow Flow: Sustainable Vinyasa Yoga for Life.

Cyndi is an ordained Buddhist Chaplain under the guidance of Roshi Joan Halifax at Upaya Zen Center. Her upcoming book, Taking Refuge in Your Body, reflects her current focus on the integration of yoga, meditation and resiliency work.

She is the author of five other books including the classic yoga text: Yoga Body Buddha Mind; the The New York Times critically acclaimed May I Be Happy: A Memoir of Love, Yoga, and Changing My Mind, and OM yoga: A Guide to Daily Practice. She is a regular contributor to numerous publications including Yoga Journal, Real Simple and Lion’s Roar.

Cyndi’s root guru is the Tibetan master, Gelek Rimpoche. She has been teaching yoga for 40 years and meditation for over 20 years.
