Here's a preview of just a few of the workshops that will be conducted at Winter Intention
with Adeline Thulliez
Ecstatic Yoga is modern yoga combining dynamic yoga movements, powerful breathwork and dance therapy. An uplifting and engaging, modern exercise experience designed to liberate the body, mind, and spirit! This fusion mash-up class will leave you sweaty, energized, joyful, and connected! Be prepared to "shake it up" on and off the mat, workout your arms, get creative, and challenge the boundaries of what you thought was possible.
Ecstatic yoga was originally created by Karma Teachers founder, Emerson Lim, as an exciting way to engage homeless youth and meet them where they are, by introducing them to the benefits of yoga and breath work while triggering a natural high through the therapeutic elements of dance, such as brain dance and ecstatic dance, while creating a space that is truly welcoming and incredibly fun at the same time.
No Dance or Yoga experience necessary.
Teacher of selflove, self esteem and self confidence. I always thought something was missing in my life until I found yoga and Karma Teachers. There I found a community, a passion, a way to express my truly self, lots of love and compassion and thanks to yoga I know that I am enough. I teach how to let go and release like my mentors taught me. I provide a safe place, a judgment free zone where you can express your inner selves. I want people to shine from the inside out. Certified 200 hours Vinyasa Teacher Training, 27h Rainbow kids yoga training, 20h Ecstatic Yoga training.
Candlelight Yin yoga and Massage
with Shaina Winddancer
Come enter into a place of stillness and relaxation, tapping into the the quiet wisdom that lives in the body. Yin yoga is a great integration practice to end your Intention and help ground a new way of being into your body.

Intro to Emotional Freedom Techniques: from Emotional 1st Aid to Deep Healing
with Charlotte Watson
Release from insecurity and self-doubt, to turn that “I’m not good enough” feeling into inner calm, clarity and confidence.
The workshop will start with an introduction to the theory of EFT and how it can be used from Emotional First Aid to deep long lasting healing, followed by a live demonstration of an EFT session with Charlotte as the practitioner and a volunteer client. All workshop participants will get to experience the power of this technique and will also learn how to apply the basic version of this technique on themselves so that they can bring this powerful tool for transformation into their daily lives.
– Move beyond Talk Therapy by releasing feelings and visceral responses from your body
