Hero’s Pose to Hero’s Quest

Do you feel a sense of restlessness in your life, a calling to something beyond your daily routine?

Transform your questions into a personal quest.

A Vinyasa Yoga Immersion @ Yoga on Beacon

May 13-24th 6-7:15am

You enter the forest at the darkest point, where there is no path. Where there is a way or path, it is someone else’s path. You are not on your own path. If you follow someone else’s way, you are not going to realize your potential.
— ~Joseph Campbell

 

 The call to adventure begins within.  In this 2 week immersion, we’ll explore how to identify and reach past your current limitations to open up new patterns. We will follow the archetypal journey of the hero’s quest in a strong Vinyasa flow. Exploring the language and ideas from the Rumi, Joseph Campbell, Paulo Cohelo, and more, we’ll listen in on our own personal legends, and draft the direction we may take our own.  Come prepared for asana & meditation practice, time for journaling, discussion and play.

Xan Roberti

Xan Roberti (CYT 200) weaves together the sacred and profane through Eclectic Heart yoga. In her classes you can expect to be seen as an individual, wherever you are in your own yogic path, and supported on your personal journey.  Stemming from the Iyengar tradition, and her years of performing in bands and dance groups, Xan’s yoga is dynamic and whimsical, with a strong Vinyasa Flow.  You will be challenged, and given space to question and play with your personal boundaries.  You will breathe deeply, you will sweat, and you may shift your life-aperture when you step off your mat.  She believes all of life is a practice, and the 2x5 foot mat is an awesome portable classroom.  She lives a life of growth and inquiry, and invites you to the same.  After years of teaching literature and creative writing, Xan channels the ancient archetypes and rhythms of lyric into each yogic practice.  She has studied astrology, tarot, the mysteries of the Goddess in Ancient Egypt, as well as participating in COR Woman.  She holds space for authenticity and vulnerability with her heart centered teaching.  She will help you remember to laugh, and embrace your perfect imperfections.

Michael Haug

After teaching ballroom and social dance for fie years, Michael Haug opened Flow Studios in 2017 to teach the world to dance, their way. Trained at Arthur Murray, he realized some flaws in the rigid program, and began to develop a new way to teach. That became Flow.  Haug sees dance as a language, not a set of routines to memorize.  Accordingly, this means movement and connection become its vowels and consonants.  Imagine walking down a sidewalk lined with autumn leaves, and seeing a good friend.  Instead of shouting hello, you dance up to him or her in greeting. Life becomes a little bit better, doesn’t it?  When the film Matrix came out, Michael connected with it deeply, and today envisions dancing up the walls as both metaphor and literal possibility.
