Join Jurian Hughes, a leading Kripalu faculty member and 20-year theater veteran, for a fun, freeing and nurturing exploration of the Yoga of YES!
Discover how to use the tools of yoga to navigate life, just as an actor skillfully moves through an improvisation… saying “Yes!” In this workshop—designed for yoga practitioners, teachers, speakers, performers, wanna-be-performers, and anyone who longs to feel more freely and fully alive—we will:
Learn breathing techniques to increase physical and emotional power, energy, command, strength and capacity
Tap into our own creativity through the playful coupling of yoga and sound
Explore yoga postures and movement that cultivate freedom and ease in body and mind
Chant, sound and sing our way to bliss
Experience the power of using the ancient teachings of yoga to speak your truth, raise your energy level, and get ready to be surprised, delighted, encouraged and impressed by your own ability to ‘let go’ and to say, Yes” to life.

Saturday Morning: Yoga and the Voice - Part I
Dive into the powerful energetic coupling of yoga and sound through chanting, affirmation and exercises designed to loosen the body and breath. Utilizing this combination of sound, breath and rhythm balances the nervous system by tapping into the brain’s control tower—the hypothalamus. This helps us balance hormones and improve mood, appetite, sleep and more. $65 Early Bird when paying by 2/6; $70 after Register Today
Saturday Afternoon: Yoga and the Voice Toolbox - Part II Sink into a more in-depth experience of the Principles as a way to connect deeply to a place of “yes”. Using the techniques we’ve learned so far we’ll incorporate additional elements of Yes-Yoga to encourage and explore freedom of expression and inner clarity. Sound and silence merge to allow full embodiment. Fee: $65 Early Bird when paying by 2/6; $70 after Register Today
Sunday Morning: From the Silly to the Sacred “Yes” “Lila”—Sankrit for “play”—is one of our most divine gifts. In this final session, we are called into sacred relationship, exploring the ancient dance of body and soul sounding. You’ll leave with an integrated understanding of how to apply the tools of the Yoga of Yes to your everyday life in order to live each day from the inquiring place of affirmation and transformation.
