Weekend Retreat at the Ancient Yoga Center
SUTRA: THE THREAD THAT CONNECTS
March 6,7 & 8, 2020 * Austin, TX
with Amanda Green, JennyO and Chase Bossart
Life can cause us to see only the “underside” of the tapestry of our life. Caught in alternating pleasurable and pain cycles, the tapestry of our life appears to be nothing more than a tangled jumble of knotted, and frayed thread.
However, when you turn a tapestry over, a rich pattern is revealed. During this weekend of meditation, movement, retreat and community with Chase Bossart, JennyO and Amanda Green, you will experience the harmonious, rich pattern woven into the fabric of your life. The “view from above” that mediation, yoga practice and supportive community remind us of.
No thread of our experience—good or bad—is wasted. A life of Yoga is a process, just like weaving the tapestry of life.
During this retreat, designed for all levels and abilities, you will be guided in supportive yoga, chanting, meditation, reflection, visioning, nature walks, journaling, and creative expression to identify limiting and unhelpful patterns in your day to day life.
Chase Bossart, JennyO and Amanda Green will join their expertise together to seamlessly weave a weekend full of connection, community and integration of sacred philosophical truths, practical yoga teachings, light-hearted story-telling, connection and community.
Chase will guide you through the great Indian epics, the Mahabharata/ Bhagavad Gita, and Ramayana where one sentence holds vast amounts of information while simultaneously expressing simple truths on how to live well. JennyO and Amanda will lead explorations of creative expression, for those who enjoy it, or just want to give it a try! You are welcome to participate in everything offered, or at any time, you may choose instead replenishing reflection.
All three will guide gentle, healing yoga practices that explore and uncover patterns we weave in everyday life-in our movement, thinking and our emotions.
You will leave with new patterns, fresh perspectives and insight that weave your tapestry with more ease and grace. You will integrate simple teachings that create sustainable transformation for living a purposeful, meaningful and satisfying life.

YOGA THERAPY: ONLINE COURSES
Yoga teachers are invited to learn what is truly special about yoga therapy’s approach to healing.
Breath + Asana course planning
Practical Course Planning
When you incorporate breathing technique into your asana instruction, you can develop someone’s attention, facilitate the experience of asana, and greatly influence a person’s state. Asking your students or therapy clients to tune into their breath increases the requirement of asana (it makes it harder), so it is important to understand how to develop this intelligently and with respect for your individual student. In this class, learn how to introduce and develop the breathing component of the asana courses you design.In each class, participants will be asked to write up a practice with both breath and asana course planning related to the week’s lesson. This will greatly support the information in the class and will provide the content for the review component of each class. Please anticipate approximately 1 hour of homework per class.
Date/Time: Tuesdays at 5:30pm PT / 7:30pm CT / 8:30pm ET for 90 minutes
Duration: We will meet twice a month for three months.
Dates: Feb 11, 25 & March 10, 24 & April 14, 28
