Emerge from your shell after a long, cold winter with the healing combination of Yin Yoga and AcuDetox. Spring is just around the corner! Come join us for an hour long Yin practice, led by Liz, designed to ease the transition between the Kapha and Vata seasons. With the passive holds of Yin, we'll harmonize the meridians most predominant during the winter months, the Kidney and Bladder meridians. 

While you relax your mind and body in savasana, Ann and Sara will administer the AcuDetox protocol which involves the gentle placement of five thin, sterile, single use needles in specific acupuncture points on each ear. The treatment will leave you feeling calm and relaxed and put a little pep in your step for the oncoming Spring!

ABOUT ROB Rob’s Teaching has evolved and has come a long way from where he began practicing in Cleveland Ohio to his day’s teaching in Washington DC to now living in Ventura and owning a studio (Jai Rhythm) with his business partner Colin Brightfield. What drew him to the practice of yoga was the physical part but after year of study and devotion it’s the spiritual part of the practice that feed his soul. And through this amazing journey he found his home in the Prana Flow community with his teacher Shiva Rea.
While Rob’s style is ever evolving, Rob’s teaching is rooted in Prana Flow: a synthesis-oriented approach to living the art of yoga created by his primary teacher, Shiva Rea. Born from the traditions of classical yoga, Bhakti, Tantra and Ayurveda, Prana Flow integrates various forms of spiritual embodiment practice to reveal yoga as a flow of unity consciousness.

Rob has found that through his own sadhana yoga can free the body and mind from the self limitations we impose on our selves and that through practice we are able to get in touch with the very essence of who we are. His goal as a teacher is to help students uncover their own personal truth and live a life that is empowered.

Mental Health Skills for Yoga Teachers

Click to open



The Art of Therapeutic Presence: 

Mental Health Skills for Yoga Teachers


More and more people with depression, anxiety, addiction and trauma histories are pursuing yoga for relief. Although most yoga teacher training programs don’t prepare teachers to recognize or handle mental health issues, teachers of a general yoga class are by necessity having to handle manifestations of mental illness as they arise on the mat. Are you aware of when this is happening and do you have the skills needed to appropriately manage it? Participating in this workshop will give you the ability to do just that.

In this intensive weekend workshop, you will develop:

  • Understanding of the most common mental health issues encountered by yoga teachers, including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, addictions, trauma, and eating disorders.
  • Practical and effective skills for appropriately recognizing and handling mental health issues as they arise in class.
  • Therapeutic relationship skills, including rapport building, healthy boundary setting, and compassionate presence.
  • Knowledge about diversity and ethical issues as they impact the teacher-student relationship.
  • Self-care strategies, including how to avoid burnout and prevent vicarious trauma.
The skills and perspectives that you learn in this workshop will help you meet the needs of a diverse body of students. While this is not training to become a psychotherapist, our goal is for you, as a yoga teacher, to feel comfortable and confident in managing mental health issues when they arise in your classes and to expand your therapeutic presence for all.

Wake Up and Flow
Saturday, August 15, 2015 
10:30am - 1:00pm


This is the perfect opportunity to wake yourself up and take notice. To practice yoga is to recognize and celebrate the Divine within and find expression for that realization. A dynamic Vinyasa style yoga practice is one way to do just that and to start to awaken the spirit within us all. Through an energizing sequence of postures, we will explore how a grounded, earth-based asana practice can be the bridge that joins the gap be- tween the spirit body and the physical body.


Maya Yoga Inversions
Saturday, August 15, 2015
3:00pm-5:30pm

In Vinyasa yoga there is a strong emphasis on standing postures and flow. But when do we get to go upside down? Inversions are crucial for balancing your day and managing your life. They are rejuvenating, energizing and extremely therapeutic when practiced with awareness.

This will be a strong class.



About Nicki
Devotion to yoga and the desire to share with and give back to the world are what mo- tivate the teaching of Maya Yoga with Nicki Doane. Yoga is spirit in action, and as Nicki teaches, she inspires people to find a place of spirit inside themselves, recognizing the profound connection between the self and spirit.

Nicki has been studying yoga in India for years and has been deeply influenced by the teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and B.K.S. Iyengar. Her unique approach to Vinyasa yoga strengthens all aspects of your being through dynamic structural alignment, con- scious breathing, and practical yogic philosophy; helping students find the deeper life of yoga. Nicki strives to teach each student that yoga is about being fully present in the moment and discovering that we are truly all One: One Love, One People, One Heart, One Destination - Our Higher Self.

Nicki Doane had a wanderlust that led her to India in 1991 to study yoga. She went to Mysore to meet Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and immediately realized she had found her teacher. Nicki started teaching in 1992. She cites Pattabhi Jois, along with Eddie Modestini, Gab- riella Giubilaro, and Tim Miller among her most influential teachers. She is an author- ized teacher of Ashtanga Yoga. Although rooted in Ashtanga, Nicki’s teaching goes be- yond the traditional. Her Vinyasa classes combine asana, pranayama, philosophy, and poetry. Nicki’s emphasis is on awareness: creating integrity within each pose that can be carried beyond the mat into daily life. Nicki teaches at yoga studios and conferences across the globe. She is featured in two Ashtanga Yoga DVD’s from Gaiam Inc. and recently produced her own series of Maya Yoga DVD’s in collaboration with her husband Eddie Modestini. Nicki and Eddie live in Maui, HI, where they co-direct Maya Yoga Studio.

About Gray Bear
Nestled in the rolling forest of the beautiful West Tennessee hills, Gray Bear Holistic Retreat Center is a pause along your path, fulfilling the ideal environment for health, relaxation, and yoga. Our richly warm, rustic retreat reveals the empirical healing of nature. Pure air commands the awareness of breath. Pure water reflects the image of serenity. Stone hearths with roaring fires, and long twilight walks will complete the richness found in the blending of naure and yoga.

The center features one hundred fifty acres of rolling hills, and thick forest for hiking, natural springs for reflection, a crisp shower in our waterfall, sacred moments in our hand-built wood-fired sauna, the silence of nature’s symphony, clean air, clear water and a life free of distractions. While the lodging is intentionally rustic, the staff makes sure guests feel comfortable and right at home. Most rooms are double occupancy with shared baths. Our commitment in the kitchen is strong: vegetarian meals prepared with love and whole, organic ingredients.

Core Module 5 (30 Hours)

The Yana and Katha of the Devas - Walk a Mile in Shiva’s Bare Feet

December 4-6, 2015 with Daphne Larkin & Tom Larkin

In this module we dive deep into the journey (yana) and tales (katha) of the gods themselves. Our study is rooted in the philosophies and mythologies of the universe as seen from the yoga tradition. We will learn through exploration stories and iconography how the vision of the Paramatman (Supreme Self) is obtained by learning about the underlying correlation and dharmic connection between God’s plan and our vision of all things.

We will dive into the storied worlds of the Vedas, Upanishads, Ramayana, Bhagavad-Gita, and stories of kings and sages, monkeys and gods. We will embrace the ebb and flow of verse, sometimes like a frenzied dance (tandava), as we open to a world rich in knowledge of a deeper intelligence.

This is primarily a lecture based module, but be prepared to move and experience the inner science of the verse.
