Eli Walker, Founder of Divine Your Story and Co-Creator of DYS Yoga Escapes, weaves together the art of solo-performance and yoga through storytelling to empower audiences and students to be the author of their own lives.
This 2-hour Divine Your Story Workshop will include a yoga practice and a manifestation meditation, followed by monologue writing and group exercises designed to help you deconstruct your investment in your personal narrative that no longer serves you, and give you the opportunity to rewrite your life story in the direction of joy!

During the first hour, we’ll spend time in heaven, or in the aerial hammock, to help release muscular tensions. We’ll explore going upside down and allow the gravity of earth help us elongate the spine while being supported by the hammock. If you are afraid of heights, the earth, or your mat on the floor, is within your arm’s reach. During the second hour, we’ll quietly transition onto the mat for yin yoga practice to help lengthen tight, contracting connective tissues. When we surrender ourselves to the support of heaven and earth, we will find not only the physical body restored and relaxed, but also our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being renewed. This workshop is suitable for all levels–from those brand new to yoga to experienced practitioners.

Allow your body to relax and restore with the deep, healing nature of slow vinyasa flow and Thai massage style hands-on assists. In this class, students move through a series of postures designed to simulate a Thai massage by using a combination of slow transitions, long holds, self-massage, hands-on assists, and gentle stimulation of acupressure points along the sen lines, known in yoga as nadis or in Chinese medicine as meridians. This practice encourages the central nervous system to shift from fight or flight, to rest and digest, allowing the body and mind to self-regulate and self-heal. An extra long savasana gives everyone in class the opportunity to receive individualized, soothing hands-on assists to melt away tension in the shoulders and neck. Let go and allow this 90-minute nurturing experience to bring you to a place of relaxation, peace, and ease.

Our camp themes and activities are specially chosen for their enriching qualities and alignment with the goal of offering kids, tweens and teens a fun, empowering, educational and creativity boosting experience. Through problem solving and community building activities, kindness and compassion will be cultivated in a nurturing, positive and supportive atmosphere. Participants will discover and exercise body, breath and spatial awareness. We are thrilled to weave aerial yoga into the classes for our tweens and teens, a practice that utilizes the aerial silk as a tool to explore movement and breath, into our program. Participants will be able to gain balance, increase confidence and build strength in a non-competitive setting. Join us for either one 5-session week or both!
Sunday, September 10th at 1:30pm-4:00pm
Our workshop, usually held on the first Sunday of every month, conjures the bridge between yoga and writing. Yoga and meditation practice peels back the layers of experience, allowing you to note the movements of the mind and body. This kind of mindfulness roots you to the present, and returns you to your authentic voice. As writers, we must know our own voices first in order to know the voices of our characters and speakers. Transcendentalists, Surrealists, Beats, and many other writing collectives all used meditation, dreams, and/or other states of altered consciousness to support their creative work. Expect to be taken on a journey.
Friday, September 15th – Friday, October 6th
Series 1: Move & Talk
Ages: Crawlers – 3
Babies start to “talk” almost immediately after their births. Their language kills continue to develop as they begin to explore with their body. In the series, we will celebrate the excitement of our young ones’ newly acquired physical and linguistic abilities through various gross motor activities.
Friday, October 13th – Friday, November 3rd
Series 2: Sensory Small World
Ages: Sitters – 3
Do you know sensory play promotes heathy brain development of our children? Children’s natural inclination of touching, smelling, tasting, and all the movements that help them to feel, create and investigate provides us with great opportunities for language learning. Let’s all immerse in the amazing sensory world and learn Mandarin Chinese!
