SPECIAL EVENT SCHEDULE

2019

 

JUNE

Mammoth Yoga Festival
13-16 June
Mammoth Lakes, CA

The inaugural event was a blast, and I loved both teaching and practicing in the stunning outdoor locations around Mammoth. The lineup of teachers and DJ’s looks amazing again this year and I’m honored to have been invited back.

My classes (day/time TBA):

Four Corners To Freedom

The four comers of the torso —two hips and two shoulders— are complex joints that play a vital role in the comfort of daily function. In this workshop we will explore flexibility and strength through multi-planer movements in these joints. Rather than advanced poses, we will bring new information and creative movements to familiar postures with the goals of improved balance, stability and alignment, as well as easing the breath and minimizing pain in every day activities such as walking, squatting, standing, lifting and reaching.

From Striving To Thriving

In an era where more is often seen as better, and being busy might be equated with productivity, there can be a strong push to strive. Yoga, however, asks you to push your inner strength, find resilience and rise up to thrive without all the external pressure. This yoga will be one part strong and fiery, one part centered presence and one part restful chill. Together we will practice a full spectrum of postures from a place of inner equilibrium that is less force and more ease.

 

NOVEMBER

Costa Rica Wellness & Rejuvenation Retreat
9-16 November
Doce Lunas Retreat Center
Jaco Beach, Costa Rica

Our wellness retreat will provide plenty of free time for relaxation, plus twice daily yoga classes led by Paisley and meditation practices with expert mindfulness teacher Robert “Bob” McClure. There will be opportunity to boost creativity through beginner-friendly art projects, music or dance performances by local Costa Ricans, hiking in the rainforest, walking on the beach and group discussions over healthy gourmet meals.

Join us in Jaco, about an hour an a half from the San Jose International airport. Our resort, Doce Lunas, is situated under preserved jungle canopy, away from the noise of town and about one mile from the beach. They also grow much of their own food, and serve it in their restaurant, Eclipse.

$1750* after July 1, 2019
Fully refundable (less $200 booking fee) up to July 1, 2019
