Yoga is such a vast topic that we will never finish exploring. Here is your opportunity to learn with some of the best teachers on the topics that they are truly passionate about. This program looks at Yoga and explores how it works and is open to teachers, recent graduates of a teacher training program, or students who want to delve deeper into their own Yoga journey. Exploring the topics of Breath, Asana, Meditation, Philosophy, and the Sacred Texts of Yoga, you will be able to connect more deeply in your own practice and if you are a Yoga teacher, assist your students to connect more deeply with theirs.


The Yoga Summer School Program runs from June 19 through August 28 and meets every Wednesday from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Hingham Studio.

You can take the program in its entirety, or you can take individual courses. Yoga Alliance CEUs are available for these trainings.

Breathe Better, Feel Better Workshop with Shawn Cornelison

June 19 and 26 (Wednesdays 7-9 pm) | Cost $100

We have all been told to take a deep breath in and then sigh it out, especially if we are under stress. Is this breath cue effective for long term breath health?  Does it make sense to give that cue to the general public?  Are there better ways to use breath to support anxiety and stress?  For many of us, even though it is something we do 20,000 times a day, breath is still a mystery.


Come learn how breath was meant to work based on physiology and the ancient texts of Yoga.  This is a fun and informative way to learn more about your breath and how to breathe and feel better.  This workshop is perfect for students who want to breathe better and have more vitality. It is also perfect for teachers who want a better understanding of how breath works and how to teach it. 

The Foundation of Yogic Experience: Exploring The Essential Nature of Being with Richard Lanza

July 10, 31, and August 28 (Wednesdays 7-9 pm) | Cost $150

We all crave fulfillment. The intent of yoga and other spiritual paths is to support individuals in living a happy and peaceful life through ‘self’ awareness and by living in the moment. Meditation has been used as a vehicle for awakening to our natural state of being. This program is to demystify the practice of meditation, discover its simplicity, and explore the direct experience of being in the now. The class will be centered around offering students guided meditation and discussion as a means of contemplation and inquiry into the true nature of the self.

Fear, Conflict and Love; Exploring the Roots of Yoga with Radhika Priya Sakhi

July 17, 24, and August 21  (Wednesdays 7-9 pm) | Cost $150

FEAR: What would it be like to make peace with fear? Yogic philosophy offers us practical methods to uncover, examine, learn from, and resolve any and all of our fears. This two-hour workshop is an ideal space to begin to work consciously with and through the fears that are causing imbalance and a lack of ease in your daily life. 


CONFLICT: What is unresolved in your present day-to-day life due to unexamined conflict? Reconcile your relationship with conflict through the practical application of yogic wisdom and techniques that free us from the side effects of disharmony. Experience the expansive sense of peace that can be established when we reframe our relationship with conflict.


LOVE: The arc of our lives is defined by our experience of love. What does yogic philosophy have to share with us regarding the most crucial of human experiences? How can we move towards a state of unconditional, spontaneous love for all beings? Where are the unconscious patterns that are holding us back from this experience? Yoga teaches us that love is an all-inclusive practice of vitality that can be learned and shared with all. Consciously change the parameters of your awareness to align towards unconditional love, beginning with simple self-inquiry practices and yogic techniques shared in this class.

Learn how by continuously inhibiting muscles we keep them weak, and what to do about it.
