Kia Miller :: Developing Navel Intelligence
Sunday, 2:00 - 3:15 :: Ram Room

Many yogic scriptures state that all yoga begins at the navel. It is the center from which we derive our sense of Self and initiate all movement. It is also the source of vitality and health in the body. Cultivating agni (fire) in the navel center helps develop emotional stamina and vigor, and lights the flame that fuels our quest to know ourselves at the deepest level.  Join Kia for a powerful practice of awakening intelligence and connection  through asana, pranayama and meditation.

Richard Odom :: Yoga and Awareness
Sunday, 4:00 - 5:00 :: Ram Room
 
This class uses ancient technology (yoga) with modern design to create a body of information that, brought into awareness, enables the student to discern between the troubled workings of the mind and the authentic needs of the body.  Anyone can follow Richard's instructions as they are clear, intuitive, instructive and filled with humor.
+ Expand

"Breathe in thinking, 'My body is strong.' Breathe out thinking, 'My mind is at peace.'"  If these words are familiar to you, then you are one of thousands of people who have attended a yoga class with Richard Odom. Richard began teaching yoga in the Wood River Valley in the mid-1970s, long before it exploded in popularity. He provided early instruction to actress and author Mariel Hemingway, tennis pro John McEnroe and local yogi Ryan Redman. He is a self-taught yogi who emphasizes self-knowledge over received ideas; he trusts in the "wisdom of the body" to lead yoga practitioners to what they need and don't need from yoga. 
Richard grew up in Daytona Beach, Fla. His parents were theosophists who kept a vast library of books, journals and magazines, and he was introduced to the sages, seers and hermits of the East, as well as to yoga.  He practiced alone, forcing himself into the postures illustrated in his books, even wedging himself under the furniture in his house to get into position.  He also studied martial arts, attended West Point for a year and then graduated from Florida State University with a degree in history and philosophy. He developed his own teaching practice, one that is light on philosophy, big on floor poses and often humorous. 
Richard is the author of "Yoga - Eastern vs. Western Philosophy," a chapter in the latest edition of Fitness: Theory and Practice, a textbook for aerobics and fitness professionals, and he has produced a DVD called Yoga for Everyday People.
