Two Unique Workshops with Jeff Migdow, MD


Purify and Detox through Yoga Practice

Saturday, Sep 30, 10:30am–1pm


Join us for this dynamic workshop exploring and experiencing how the practice of postures, breathing exercises and meditation naturally lead to detoxification of our organs and cells. Through this detoxification the pathways are opened up for both physical and energetic purification through the flow of prana and increased circulatory and lymphatic flow.

In this workshop we will:

  • Discuss how the practice of yoga strengthens your heart, lungs, nerves and detoxifies organs
  • Learn how the detoxification process leads to greater health and vitality on all levels
  • Directly experience these benefits on the mat as we practice together

Strengthening your Glands and Immune System through Yoga Practice

Saturday, Sep 30, 2:00pm–4:30pm


When we practice yoga, the physical movement, breathing and energetic stimulation we create induces nervous system relaxation, glandular activation and balance, and immune system stimulation.

In this workshop, we will:
  • Explore how reducing stress relaxes your nerves and strengthens your immune system
  • Become more acquainted with our glandular system and how yoga balances and rejuvenates our glands
  • Experience through our yoga practice activation and rejuvenation of the glands and our vitality

Both workshops are suitable for all levels of practice as well as ideal for yoga teachers.

Rejuvenate with a Healing Gong Sound Meditation

Saturday, October 7, 4:00–5:30pm

Romy Valdez


There are few instruments like the Gong that can heal us through its purification properties of sound vibrations. In this energy field, the beginnings of removing all blocks can occur allowing you to reorganize and rebalance. This workshop will include transformational methods that include yoga and breathwork to prepare us for the vibrational healing energy of the Gong.

Some benefits of gong meditation include:

  • Conducive to healing and transformation
  • Induces a state of meditation by calming the mind
  • Reduces the internal dialogue
  • Creates a state of relaxation and release of tension
  • Stimulates the circulatory and glandular systems
  • Rebalances the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies
  • Helps clear energetic and emotional blockages
  • Regenerates the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Awakens higher states of consciousness
  • Bathes you in a cascade of healing sound — claims to shift the brain from Beta (waking state) to Theta or Delta (meditation) through the vibrations of the instrument.

Many people report receiving a deep sense of tranquility, reduced stress and improved sleep after a Gong Sound Meditation.


Pricing: $30 early bird. $35 at the door.

Sunday, October 29, 10:30am–12:30pm

Pat Lebau


Are your feet in pain? That stabbing pain near the heel when you get up in the morning that lingers through the day? You stretch and work out but nothing seems to help. What to do? Welcome to Integrated Positional Technique (IPT). Learn to release pain by relaxing - slackening - over stretched muscles. It's a different approach. And it works. 

Pat Lebau, Kripalu yoga teacher since 2008, brings her own personal PF story and success helping others to this workshop on IPT for foot pain. You will learn simple, non standard positions to help alleviate pain of running, walking and standing. You will learn about daily activities that can lead to pain and simple, effective techniques to use at home a few times a day for a few minutes at a time to relieve the pain and keep it away while still enjoying daily activities like running, walking and working out.

Pricing: $35 early bird ($40 walk-in)
