The Liberation Institute has been offering the beautiful tradition of Yoga to various populations for the past fifteen years. We cut our teeth teaching yoga to those in drug and alcohol recovery treatment settings beginning in 2007. We have now added to our mission by working in multiple prisons.
We believe everyone can benefit from thIS practice. Join us for one of our public events, TRAININGS OR WORKSHOPS. YOUR ATTENDANCE AND INTEREST helpS support FUTURE programming.
CLASSICAL VINYASA YOGA
The Yoga of Krishnamacharya can mean many things. After all he is the forefather of Iyengar, Ashtanga, Power, and Integral Yoga. Here at the Liberation Institute we offer a classical yoga teacher training with a focus on traditional Vinyasa Yoga. We believe Yoga is just as applicable today as it was thousands of years ago. We also believe it needs no meddling. Expect vigorous, energetic, flowing classes with intelligent sequencing and a whole lot of heart.
RESTORATIVE AND YOGA NIDRA
The majority of the population is existing in the stress response. Not only does this lower rates of longevity and increase rates of disease but it drains the joy and happiness from life. Our hope is to bring healing and restoration to those in need of rest, and all those we meet. Join us for a restorative event or workshop and find some much needed peace and a higher quality of life..
SOUND & ENERGY HEALING
We are all vibrational beings. In our overworked and overindulged society its next to impossible to turn off our minds. Our methodology has always included sacred sound to combat the effects of a busy lifestyle. Whether you are drawn to the polishing effects of Sanskrit mantra or the grounding energy of drums, we have you covered.
