Yoga and Meditation

Dreaming & Awakening

Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D

March 10, 2010 - March 19, 2010
This 9-day Residential Training Program in Lucid Dreaming (dreaming while knowing that you are dreaming) and Tibetan Dream Yoga will focus on methods of developing the mental skills that foster lucid dreaming and on directing your consciousness in the dream state towards fulfillment of your personal goals. We will reflect on the nature and value of consciousness in waking as well as dreaming, exploring the nature of "reality" and how our perceptions and assumptions influence our experience of life.

`Ohana Yoga Retreat - Kalani Oceanside Retreat October 11th-18thCome and experience the ultimate yoga retreat. Yoga, adventure and the spirit of Polynesia all in the most spectacular venue on the Big Island of Hawaii.

About the Facilitator(s)

Gena Kenny

Gena Kenny

Gena has worked in the health and fitness industry as a lecturer and instructor for 18 years. She has taught yoga to such diverse groups as elite athletes, corporate groups, senior citizens and those seeking improved flexibility and strength and mind awareness.

`Ohana Yoga weaves together the spirit of polynesia and a hatha style of yoga. Combining breath, postures, relaxation and meditation which all aim to quiet your mind and bring renewed energy to your entire being.

My connection to Hawaii and the spirit of Polynesia comes from a twenty year history of paddling outrigger canoes. Through my many travels to Hawaii, I have had the opportunity to discover the magic of the Polynesian Islands and peoples. In essence the spirit of the islands is "Aloha", which means to be kind, nurturing and loving to yourself, to others and to the planet.

The creation of "`Ohana Yoga" comes from blending this 'magic' and 'spirit' into my own unique style of teaching. Gena has also authored a book and dvd "The Gift of Yoga".
