Being in the Now, or what we often call the present moment, is one of the most powerful practices of life (or Yoga). Paradoxically, when we learn how to be in the Now, we deepen our ability to learn from the past and plan for the future. The book, The Power of Now, is a masterpiece that aligns beautifully with ancient yogic teachings. I have spent several years contemplating and meditating on Tolle's powerful teachings and wish to share my insights and connect his work to the practice of asana, meditation and yogic philosophy. Come spend the weekend with us as we explore these teachings through our asana practice, group discussion, and most importantly, and through grounding through the body.
Topics We Will Explore:
Why be present?
How goal setting plays a roll in being present.
Learn story's and myths that offer simple examples of the power be being in the Now.
Explore how the teachings such as Patajali Yoga Sutra and the Bhagava Gita relate to being Present.
The experience of Now as an in-the-body experience.
Using awareness to refine your yoga poses.
Explore how being present is powerful to us as yoga teachers and students.
Understanding how the Now makes us more "Happy" or what we call in Yoga "Full".
Do you have a mind or does your mind have you?
Exploring complimentary opposites and how that can guide us to "truthfulness".

Upon registration you will receive an immediate email confirmation containing details about the workshop and information regarding the studio. If you are currently enrolled in our 300 Hour Advanced Studies Teacher Training Modular program, will receive immediate credit after attending the module. You do not need to do anything, however, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns.
Because this is an Advanced Studies course, we are assuming you have or have had in the past a daily practice. We recommend continuing, or re-starting this and practicing at the same time each day, as the body craves regularity. Practicing in the am or pm is entirely up to you–both have their own benefits. Try to stay on your mat 30-120 minutes and enjoy your practice!
No refunds for cancellations given with less than 24-hours notice.

What are Advanced Study Modules?
We’ve built our Advanced Study Modular Program around the drop-in concept. There are 11 required modules you need to take, each lasting anywhere from 2-5 days long, generally over a weekend. Modules are taught either by one of our experienced staff members or an international yoga teacher. We bring some of the biggest names in the industry to our studio and programs. In this very flexible modular program, you get to decide which particular module you take, at what time and taught by whom. And you have 5 years to complete 11 modules (some students do it within 2 years though). Modules are generally open to the public as well, so you will be joined by experienced teachers as well as aspiring enthusiasts. Modules can be taken by someone not going after a 300 Hour Certification–though if they decide later to pursue the 300 Hour Certification, they can retroactively include the modules they’ve already taken in the past 12 months only.
Choose 11 modules in total from these four categories:
- Pick at least one 3-day course
- Pick at least one 4-day course
- Pick at least one 5-day Intensive
- Pick the remaining eight courses from any of the four categories (weekend, 3-day, 4-day, or 5-day*)
*You must complete 11 separate modules for graduation. Most modules offered multiple times per year.
