The morning practices will be a traditional LLF FLOW, the day is open for your exploring or restoring, and the afternoon sessions will be taught workshop style. Each teacher is creating a special workshop to focus on her greatest passions: back bending, therapeutic yoga, inversions and chakra opening yoga will be incorporated to make sure your practice grows.
If you desire to move deeper into the exploration of the spiritual side of yoga optional fragrance alchemy, pineal gland opening, energetic center clearings and shushumna nadi opening meditations will be offered to deeply explore the esoteric side of yoga and the science of the mind.

About the Teacher
Jaime Scates Schmitz
Jaime comes to Yoga from a long and diverse athletic background. After years of hammering away at her body-ski racing, climbing, mountain biking & running-she came to Yoga with chronic lower back pain from shortened hamstrings. The creation of spaciousness and fluidity were not limited to the body: as she engaged in the study of yoga spirituality, she gained mental fluidity as well. She came to understand that what she loved so much about athletics was very yogic: it was the cultivation of “dharana,” single-pointed concentration, one of the eight limbs of yoga. “When you’re hauling 60 pounds on your back and your body is fried, the complete engagement in the physical effort clears the clutter of habitual thought patterning and limited thinking.” When she came to yoga, she realized that asana, the physical limb of yoga, created a similar freedom. As a result her classes are very athletic, “There’s a lot of power in working very hard in the body, it cultivates dharana, discipline and will. It requires us to breathe through difficulty thereby cultivating a calm and non-reactive mind in the face of challenge.” Jaime teaches from a place of connection to the historical roots of Vinyasa Yoga (Ashtanga), but loves the liberation, athleticism and challenge inherent in a fluid, dynamic and intuitive flow.
