Yoga on Dub Teachers

JAH9

Deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry, dub and spirit to become a powerful femiNINE energy within a universal grassroots movement of consciousness. Inspired by the open spaces in the instrumental dub of 1970’s Jamaican roots music, Jah9 sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel; “reminiscent of that darkly operatic wailer for truth & justice, Nina Simone.” Her philosophy–profoundly spiritual, and her style–Jazz on Dub.

MANDAI

Originally inspired by the rhythms that carried her in travels through Africa, then by the underground dancehall scene in Vancouver, she spent countless hours elbow-deep in crates of '45s in Canada, the US and Jamaica and her selections firmly solidified her as one of the Lighta! crew's artists. She is well-known for her legendary mixes, some being all-vinyl releases which is her true love. Blending reggae/dancehall classics with newer gems and dub plates acquired while in Jamaica, she stays loyal to the island vibes. With each year her love of music deepens and she is expanding to include more rap/hip-hop/RnB/grime/bass music in her sets. She regularly performs at Bass Coast, Shambhala and her family-run festival The Field. She has opened for well-known artists in both the reggae/dancehall and international underground music scenes, frequents Thursday Ting in Vancouver and can be found behind the decks at underground parties spanning the west coast and several other major musical hubs. In 2012 she gave birth to Lighta's youngest little member. bup!bup!

Yin & Justice: Oppression, Liberations & Action

  • Yoga on 7th

30 Hour Yoga & Leadership Immersion with Danielle Hoogenboom & Dia Penning in Vancouver, BC  

Join Danielle and Dia for a race, equity and inclusion investigation using the lens of yin yoga as a tool for liberation and equality. Engage in this  intentionally radical look at how privilege, habitual patterns and physical holding play out as injustice in the world.

How do we confront and contain our energy, while making our bodies conduits for change? What does it take to create change, both internal and external?

This workshop is designed for yoga teachers, curious students, activists,  and seekers  of all levels.  The hours count as CEU with Yoga Alliance, or can applied towards the completion of LLY 200 Yin Yoga School. 

Your Teachers:

DIA PENNING
Director of Curriculum & Education, World Trust

Dia dances in the intersections of art, yoga, and social justice. A yoga practitioner for over 20 years, she discovered her love of yoga through a book she checked out from a local library. Dia supports students in slowing down, examining limiting patterns, and exploring creativity. She views yoga as a tool for social change, integrating it into her work as a social justice coach by encouraging a deep exploration of structural inequity through personal transformation and paradigm shift.

Dia is a connector of ideas, people, feelings, and thoughts. She is a mother, yogi, artist, activist, lover, teacher and student. She recognizes that her students share similarly complex identities and strives to meet them where they are at, every day.

TrueSelf EarthStrong Anniversary Class

  • TrueSelf Centre of Being

Suuuuper stoked to be sharing again at True Self for the 3rd Year EarthStrong Celebration.

This Kingston yoga studio is an amazing community filled with all styles of class from yoga, to dance and meditation and tai chi, workshops and healings. Over the years I have held a few yin teacher trainings there and spent many hours taking classes. I can say whole heartedly some of the best classes I have ever taken were at True Self and so great to practice with great friends. Yoga is a quiet revolution that is all about building community.

Liz had a dream to build an accessible place for yoga and healing that would really call culture, youth and diversity to this practice. Its her family home and a real special haven in a busy city. Teachers and visitors from all over the world inspiring conscious living and one love in action.

What a super joy to be back this Wednesday night at 8pm sharing Yin Yoga and with the sweet sounds of the musical medz of Andre France (he has an IG! you can follow. https://www.instagram.com/andre.france/)  We will be bringing you some of the sweet space making that is yin and I am certain you will hear the flutes that he makes.

Yin + Social Justice | St Mary, Jamaica

  • St Mary Jamaica

Join us for an educational retreat in St Mary, Jamaica featuring a balance of rest, adventure, knowledge sharing and transformation all fuelled by a natural and local plant based diet. Dia and Danielle are combining forces for revolutionary examination of structure and form, both in energetics of yin yoga as an examination of the world and how energy is effected by our actions and intentions. 

Navigating our changing world and incorporating ideas around equity and social justice can be challenging. Like yoga, it requires practice and challenging long-held habits. By bringing our yoga practices into our lives and communities we are better able to examine the structures and attitudes that keep inequity in place. During this 14 day intensive we will parallel how focusing on energy meridians and changes made to our physical bodies can serve as a microcosm for energy changes in our communities, showing that small tweaks, the expansion of attention and changes in behavior create vast changes interpersonal relationships, community interaction and larger social structures.

So often we look at collaboration in terms of making others understand us. What if we stopped to understand where others were coming from? In yoga and social justice the intent is to change habitual patterns. Change your patterns of bias and privilege by practicing with a likeminded group of people that are curious about shifting perspectives, forms, and examining structures and habits. Working in collaboration with elders and activists we will explore the links between energy, meridians, social change and paradigm shift, putting our yoga into action.

Exploring the idea of asana as a safe exploration of your intentions and inner energies. Are you moving from habit or systems that were created around you? Do you question these as truth within you, or are you willing to explore? What if the form was not important as the function? Taking this Yin Yoga metaphor and extending into teaching and leadership work, this training will begin with the frame work of the elements  exploring the relationship of long held beliefs to sensations in long held poses.  

Free the tension in your body and spirit. allowing the space to renew, refresh and see with new eyes. These shifts to have the capacity to impact actions in the world. Calling all rebels, leaders, healers, seekers and knowers. Let’s gather together to explore the complex, awkward, covert, and paradox as medicine for change.

Calling together yogis and activists to connect, collaborate,  and create a collective message Calling for equity, empowerment, healing self-study and long range sustainability.

February 16 - March 2, 2017

Obediya Jones-Darrell is the head therapist of Superior Martial Arts.  He has had the opportunity to work with high level athletes such as Olympians, Yoga teachers and Professional Dancers to the general population who participate in the activities of daily living. Obediya helps these people do efficient stretching for injury prevention.  In this workshop, Obediya introduces specific stretching techniques and how to do some thai yoga based assists. Through a guided discussion he demonstrates how traditional concepts of yin and yang, the foundation of Acupuncture, and scientific principles from anatomy and physiology can work together to help you and your clients achieve balance during your practice.  

Dr. Elisabeth Ormandy was introduced to yoga by her Grandfather when she was young. She officially started her yoga journey in 2002 with the practice of Ashtanga. Four years later Elisabeth travelled the ocean from Edinburgh to Vancouver where she nestled among the mountains and started to explore other yoga styles and philosophies.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine that uses very fine needles placed in very specific points along energy meridians of the body. It works with the same meridians that are activated during stretches, compressions, and twists in Yin Yoga. Acupuncture during Savasana, after a Yin practice, is an incredible way to combine forces and harness the healing power that flows through the meridians. Because the needles are placed in such a specific way, acupuncture allows for great precision and direct stimulation of the meridians in just the places you need them. The needles are very small and acupuncture rarely hurts. Dive deep into the relaxation and healing experience!

Herbal Medicine Making
Plants hold all kinds of healing magic. In an afternoon workshop, we’ll learn how to make medicines out of locally harvested medicinal plants, so that you can be empowered and connected to Nature in a respectful and mutually beneficial way. Using the magnetic power of the full August moon, we will discover how to make & administer medicines, how to harvest plants in a sustainable & sacred way, and how to incorporate intention setting into the process to reach new levels of healing and knowledge. The focus will be on plants with a strong moon connection and will include teachings about honouring your own lunar cycles. Come play & learn with us!
