For this first wave of 6 months of offerings, our focus will be on the subtle body - specifically the chakra system. Each month will be dedicated to one (or two) centers with the final session culminating in a flow that encompasses all seven chakras. Together we will be exploring how the physical body manifests both the vitality and the holdings of the energy body and how it offers us avenues to transformation. Each energy center is related to a different aspect of human development which provides a map for our psychological / spiritual unfoldment.
The morning will begin with a vinyasa flow practice, followed by meditation including instruction and guidance. From there, we'll move into a teaching where we will introduce a topic and then develop it through the practice of inquiry - a partner-based exercise aimed at self-exploration and illumination. To close, we will allow space for questions and reflections followed by a gentle restorative yoga practice to assist with integration.
These workshops are designed to create a space for deepening practice along with the cultivation of sangha (community). This is an opportunity to come together with other practitioners, to establish a strong, steady, well-resourced field of support- which the Buddhists refer to as the "third jewel," sangha. It is a space to take our practice deeper, beyond the mat, into the realms of philosophy & psychology, energetics, self-study (svadhyaya) and ultimately... awakening.
Rosemary will be joined by Simon Moyes for these workshops. Simon is a certified Zen teacher in the Soto Zen Lineage of Suzuki Roshi and was a Zen monk for 5 years. His passion is bringing the wisdom of the Zen tradition into our contemporary culture through mindfulness and emotional intelligence. He has worked with Google and the United Nations and is a lead teacher and curriculum designer at the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute. Simon is also a long term student in the Diamond Approach, and was first introduced to yoga when he was practicing meditation in India 25 years ago. When not teaching he can be found tending to his bees and doing contemporary dance.
Rosemary's calm and unconditionally loving presence is a gift to be around and learn from. Simon's playful and sincere disposition is also such a gift to be around and learn from. Together, they connect the teachings of yoga, meditation, and what it means to be a human being in such a way that is digestible, inspirational, and deeply impactful no matter where you are in your journey.

Rosemary and Simon - the dynamic duo, the dream team! Rosemary and Simon’s innate skill sets perfectly complement one another. Their collaborative approach targets the student's body, mind and spirit to cultivate life changing transformations. Both bring years of education, svadhyaya and expertise into their teachings, which encourages and empowers students to explore well beyond their existing knowledge base - transforming body, mind and spirit. They quite literally changed my life - in the most positive of ways.
