Orcas Mandala Yoga Studio will host a Community Acupuncture Clinic on Tuesdays with Danielle Dyer of Heal~Flow Acupuncture. Treatments will be based in Japanese constitutional acupuncture, which seeks to treat our root imbalances through fewer needles and gentle techniques.

Danielle Dyer’s style as a practitioner is rooted in touch. She uses information gathered from the pulse, tongue, channels and abdomen to make sure the treatment is right for your body and the moment. She also incorporate other forms of touch healing such as Reiki and bodywork in the community clinic.

Treatments will be sliding scale $20-50. No appointment necessary.

DANIELLE DYER:
Greetings from Panacea, my sailboat that carried me to Orcas Island last November. I arrived here with a mission! After years of constant study, I finally got to leave the city, Masters in Acupuncture in hand, to share my love of Chinese medicine through my business, Heal~Flow Acupuncture.

My vision is to broaden the scope of acupuncture beyond the office and into the daily lives of people and communities. My mission is to make Chinese Medicine accessible by offering sliding scale pricing and mobile services. I feel blessed and honored to call these islands my new home and to offer my skills and my heart to this community.

Prajna Yoga In-Depth Study and Teacher Training: The Fluid Body

with DJUNA MASCALL E.R.Y.T 500
October 8 – 13, 2018 (2 SPOTS LEFT)
AND November 10 – 15, 2018

8:00am – 5:00pm

Prajna Session 2ATTAIN INSIGHT: PRAJNA YOGA TRAINING
The Prajna approach to the practice of yoga is classical, yet multidimensional. Rather than a prescription to teach a given system, this program is an invitation to cultivate a language of yoga that articulates the body in asana and pranayama and incorporates the study of poetry, sutras, myths, and chanting. We inspire students to discover new associations and tap their inner strength and unique gifts. Students are empowered to practice and teach from a place of creativity, adaptability, and imagination~ and ultimately “attain insight” or “prajna.”

Level 2: THE FLUID BODY
This session is an in-depth study of the hands, arms, and shoulders relative to the diaphragm and pranayama. We reflect on myths from the yoga tradition that relate to rivers, ocean and the fluid body.

The Fluid Body begins at the third chakra and the kidney/adrenal region. We investigate the importance of hydration and fluidity within the body. This course is an in-depth study of the upper torso including the sternum, shoulders, arms, diaphragm, brachial plexus, heart/lung and carpal tunnel. We include mobilization techniques to free the ribs, spine, shoulders and hands in the SATYA training. Asana sequences emphasize arm balance preparations and shoulder openers for backbends and inversions. Much time is devoted to the shoulder girdle and practicing poses that serve to align the shoulders and reduce strain in the rotator cuff area. In addition, we continue our study of the Five Sheaths of connective tissue that spiral around the trunk and pass through the arms. We study the nadis, Ayurveda marma points, and chakras that relate to the arms and upper trunk.

This week, Djuna will introduce the foundation of pranayama practice, while introducing ways to sensitize the diaphragm, ribs and lung tissue. The primary theme for the week is water and the fluid systems of the body. We look at the fluid pulse (spanda) that animates the cosmic cycles of creation and destruction, particularly through the powerful metaphors of ocean and river. As we explore the cosmic themes of water and life, we detail the circulation of blood, lymph and cerebral-spinal fluid through the body. We investigate the power of myth (from the mythology of Vishnu) and in particular the teachings on maya, or the illusory nature of the visible world. We read chapters from Herman Hesse’s Siddhartha while investigating the teachings on karma, inter-dependency and nonjudgmental awareness.
