During the next 6 months, you will immerse yourself in Fluid Mind, Spirit, Body and Teaching
Fluid Mind: Friday, November 6th – Sunday November 8th; 9am – 4pm daily
In this Module, students explore a central question: How can we let go of fear, craving and attachment in order to become happier and more content? The Fluid Mind approach begins with a foundational understanding of Tibetan Buddhist mind training, and continues to explore the science of meditation, the foundations of practice, and specific meditation practices (including shamata, maitri/loving kindness, and tong-len). A Fluid mind is present and adaptable to change—qualities that lead to happier living and more refined yogic practice.
Includes: morning meditation practice, asana, lecture, group meditation, recorded discourse, content, self study
Fluid Spirit: Friday, December 4th – Sunday, December 6th; 9am – 4pm daily
We often think of life as static snapshots that are put together to form a bigger picture, but in reality the nature of life is flowing from one moment to the next. Since life is fluid, we can all benefit from discovering a way of life that moves with the forces of nature instead of against them. Fluid Living teaches us to move effortlessly through life in a way that creates happiness within ourselves and those around us. This module uses experiential learning and real world examples while drawing on the ancient Tibetan yogic philosophies such as the Six Paramitas as outlined The Bodhisattva’s Way of Living.
Includes: morning meditation practice, asana, lecture, group meditation, recorded videos, content, self study
Fluid Body: Friday, January 8th – Sunday, January 10th; 9am – 4pm daily
An approach to movement that allows for freedom and exploration while aligning the body in a safe and efficient manner. Unlike a mechanical or precision based alignment, this approach to movement honors the dynamic nature of the yoga practice and keeps the body safe without disrupting flow. With simplicity in mind, Fluid Body provides students and teachers with simplistic methods for understanding safe alignment. Acknowledging that the safest alignment starts within the mind, you will learn how to listen carefully to your own body to make the intuitive adjustments as your body moves.

Jamie Russell, Teacher Trainer
In the vinyasa-style Fluid Yoga classes I teach, students can expect a creative, intelligent flow that joins breath, alignment and awareness. Come with an open mind for a welcoming and un-intimidating concoction of challenge and calm through the use of Buddhist inspired philosophy, breath work and movement of the body.
In my classes students are encouraged to delve deeper into the strength and stability we posses innately by using slow breathing techniques and efficient movement of the body. I derive great joy from sharing a practice with students and hope to be a support system throughout your yogic journey, from familiarizing new students with the basics to offering workshops, retreats and trainings for those looking to challenge themselves in new ways.

With over 10 years of experience in sports and orthopedics after training 6 years at Northeastern University’s Masters program for physical therapy Alicia Molloy has been able to help patients heal from injury and inspire them to change their lifestyle to prevent future injury. Always treating with a heavy focus on posture, movement patterns and body mechanics, Alicia has been a perpetual student of learning traditional researched-based practices in medicine, newly developed techniques and alternative medicine that have been shown to help people live their lives pain-free. Alicia began teaching yoga only after she found an extremely therapeutic effect from her own personal practice of yoga. After training with Kevan Gale in Fluid Yoga she gained the tools and the experience to begin applying yoga poses, breathing techniques and guided meditation to her patients in need. She is focused on the overall well-being of her patients and students. When she is not working with patients in the clinic, or teaching group classes, she is teaching the anatomy portion of various teacher trainings and holding workshops for yoga teachers and students for injury prevention.
