Workshops are an excellent way for both the beginner and experinced practitioner to deepen their understanding of yoga and practice.
The extra time given at a workshop offers an opportunity for investigate different techniques and methods that might not be offered in most regular classes. Below are only a few of the workshops offer. These offerings change and evolve as I continue down the path as both student and teacher. “Absorb what is useful, discard what is not, add what is uniquely your own.” –BRUCE LEE

Developing sensitivity in your inversion practice from foundation to flight
In This 2 hour workshop we will learn to navigate the edge. The edge is an uncomfortable and scary place to be. As adults we tend to avoid experiences and situations that put us in a vulnerable position. This workshop provides us the opportunity to get comfortable with being uncomfortable at the edge. Yes, we may fall down, we may stumble, we may fail. That is how the greatest lessons are learned. We may also find courage, strength, resilience, acceptance, understanding and even JOY. Join Danielle for a two hour workshop navigating your PERSONAL edge. This workshop is designed to challenge practitioners from beginner to experienced in the same space. Expect an intelligently sequenced flow focusing on the foundations of hand balance with opportunities to workshop key Rocket Yoga inversions sprinkled throughout, followed by a deep and soothing savasana. MEET US AT THE EDGE.
OPEN HEARTS – Saturday March 23 12:00PM
Embracing the unknown through backbends
Back-bending often evokes a powerful response. Most either avoid them at all costs, or love to sprinkle them throughout their practice taking the art of the back-bend deeper and deeper. Chances are if you are part of that first group you may not have truly experienced them. In this workshop we will learn how to open the front body, strengthen the back, use the breath as a guide and much more. Learn to practice self acceptance, instead of struggling against your limitations where ever you may be within your practice. This workshop is suitable for yogis.
Evolution of Flow
- 25 HR Teacher Training and Student Intensive
- May 3-5, 2019
- Metta Yoga, Calgary AB
Join Danielle Murray for a 25 Hour intensive designed to integrate you into the sequences of ashtanga rocket vinyasa yoga. This student and teacher intensive will provide you the tools to practice independently and continually modify the practice in order to remain in alignment. To remain in alignment we are required to engage in the present moment. The alignment that we are speaking of is so much more than postures or transitions; This alignment is a process of learning to engage with your experiences as they are unfolding without labels or judgements. These practices and the repetitive nature of the sequences allow the practitioner to gain a deeper awareness of their boundaries through familiarity and develop sensitivity to shifts, resistance, and fluctuations over time.
To know where we are now, why, and where we are going, we must first discover where we have been. This training/student Intensive will focus first on breaking down in detail the foundations and roots of the practice; Ashtanga Yoga. We will dissect both the primary and secondary series so that we may better understand the intentions, philosophy and sequencing.The training will help you develop a relationship with the 3 rocket sequences. Learning about the teachers who modified these series, their intentions, and how they remixed the system of ashtanga vinyasa. Each of these practices will be challenging for the student and teacher but are always shared in a way that encourages accessibility. Finally combining what we have learned about The ROOTS we REFLECT.
