Sean Phelps began practicing yoga daily 8 years ago on his 30th bday and is now a dedicated ashtanga and movement practitioner. He has a solid base and rooting under the tutelage of Chad Hamrin (who has been teaching the integration of mindfulness and yoga for over forty years), Kino Mcgregor, and Tim Feldman.
Sean does his best to continually draw our attention to the present moment. Incredibly aware, methodical, and mindful of not only the 'seat' we take in the room but in daily life as well- as that is what he believes is most important. Observing the breath, and incessant 'self talk' that we ALL are subject to at many times of the day through a variety of transitions and postures. So, though he does practice and teach the movement and energetics of yoga, Sean is just as dedicated to helping others work through their 'stuff' mindfully, no matter what level they are at currently. He believes we are ALL scientists; all we need to do is to learn HOW to pay attention...again, and again-over and over. Consistent conscious awareness of the breath moving in and out of the body, stilling the fluctuations of the mind no matter what you are faced with on or off the mat. No reaction. Just observance. Expect to be mentally and physically challenged as he covers flexibility, strength, and balance in each and every one of his classes.
Join these 3 days of in-depth yoga training to accelerate your practice! Learn how to sustain and ignite your inner fire; floating peacefully, mindfully and energetically every second that you’re on the mat. Alignment tips, techniques and breath work will be covered extensively during all classes. Those key elements that are practiced and led in nearly every class but, are never quite broken down deeply to where the student actually grows and works powerfully, mindfully and efficiently progressing forward in them.
