Yoga Rituals at A Gentle Way Yoga 
Feathered Pipe Ranch
Safe Places to Leave the World Behind

Hello Dear Ones,

Yoga rituals are the reason that after owning my yoga center for many years I frequently hear students say is how SAFE they feel when they walk through our doors. When we practice these rituals, we build up the energy of our yoga rooms, and our experience deepens each time we come. (Scroll down for AGW rituals)

Feathered Pipe Retreat Center holds even a much higher frequency,and you feel it the moment you drive onto the land.
Even the animals that live on the property know that something special happens there.

A Gentle Way Studio Rituals....

To our dear students who attend our local classes:

Because there is so much unrest in the world, I'd like to ask that we all take the time to review our studio rituals, and make a conscious effort to be aware of the energy we each bring into the studio. One way we do this is through the rituals we practice upon entering the yoga space.

These yoga rituals I ask you to do at A Gentle Way may seem small, but they make a big difference to the quality of your practice. Most other senior and master teachers of yoga ask the same of their students. We are in a grand tradition of honoring the space in which we learn.

Somewhere between very slow, long-held supported restorative asanas, 
yoga nidra, quiet seated crossed legged meditation, and traditional Hatha asana, 
there is a unique and wonderful place to begin or enhance your yoga practice
 that is joyful, healing, highly effective,  and doable for 95% of the population. 
This is yoga for your back, your hips, your spine, and your mind. 
Lanita calls this MIMSY Meditation in Movement Style®  Yoga.

Aalamba® Yoga is safer, slower, smarter Hatha Yoga customized for the needs of the students.  Aalamba classes will be taught at this retreat by Lanita and her staff in chairs, with props, and in slow flow practices throughout the week.
