Fun, Flow and Flexibility
In this spontaneous and playful practice we step aside from traditional asana and into the realm of postures like the crab, seahorse, and T-Rex which allow the body to gain flexibility and strength while freeing the mind of mechanistic and self-limiting thoughts.
Remember how being imaginative just came naturally when you were a child, and how exhilarating it was to feel being fully alive in your body, to freely rejoice in all your senses, to laugh and shout, to jump and dance, and to play pretend without any rules? Paulie’s liberating approach to yoga shows us how to reawaken our childlike playful spirit. Paulie makes learning fun; and when learning is fun it becomes almost effortless.
In this session we will go beyond the rigidly timed and passive postures so commonly taught in Yin classes. We will practice both still and dynamic postures for developing core strength and balance, and the flowing of postures in smooth transitions from pose to pose.
Animals & Elements-
Take a pose on the wild side!
Let your primal spirit come out and play. In this session we will practice postures that embody a variety of animals and enliven the energies of the five transforming elements of Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire–experience the springiness of a frog, the lightness of a bird, the might of a bear, the calmness of a cow, the slinkiness of a seal.
Here you will discover the deeper dimensions of Yin yoga. Specific postures are used to actualize the energetic essence of various creatures and to stimulate the properties of the five alchemical elements, thus harmonizing these qualities within the body and engaging the primal power that resides within us all.
This practice enables us to move beyond the constraints of limited thinking, to clear blockages, and to develop a heightened awareness. We have an innate ability to attune our consciousness with our fellow beings of the plant and animal realms. By returning to our true and wild nature we can enjoy a greater vitality and a newfound freedom of movement and relaxed confidence within our bodies.
Head to Toe, Heart and Soul
Experience the art of Yin yoga with the founder as it is intended to be: a complete practice which includes postures for both upper and lower body, creative movement, and the self expression of our unique individuality. Let your spirit become one with the rhythm and flow of nature that lives within you and all around you.
Yin yoga is an art form not a theoretical science. Paulie’s approach to yoga is about following our own personal path. Each of us have our own Tao- a unique way of being imbedded and evolving in the world. Paulie gently guides us in opening to our intuitive hearts and discovering the artist that is inherent within.
Paulie shows us how to experience the power of our mind to transcend the boundaries of presumed limitations and to realize our untapped potential. It’s about remembering our wholeness by returning to the mysterious source of our being and aligning our heart, our mind, and the energetic field of our entire body with the greater body of mother earth and the spirit of creation from which all springs forth.
Bring the spirit of freedom and enjoyment to your practice. This module will cover a variety of both upper and lower body postures based on animals and the five transforming Elements of Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and Fire. We will learn breathing meditations and how to grow the body flexible.
Paulie will guide students in how to properly practice postures in stillness and in the fluid transitions from pose to pose. The emphasis will be on quieting the mind and learning to relax deeply into postures while focusing on feeling the subtle energetics of each pose and attuning to the innate wisdom of our bodies.

Maria, I want to tell you how much I enjoyed your 5 elements meditations in Paulie’s workshop at Kripalu~ beautiful as well as powerful~ I felt my energy flow and shift~ I could feel each one of the elements through my senses~ and Paulie’s guidance outside in the beauty of nature~ I never felt so present and alive.
Dear Paulie and Maria,
Thank you both so much for a wonderful Yin Yoga Teacher Certification course. Maria, the meditations you developed and all you do for the website and planning for Paulie’s teaching are much appreciated so he can be free to do what he does best. Paulie, this training has been the most freeing, pleasant, fun, and experiential training I have ever taken. I learned so much from not only the art that you so brilliantly teach, but I learned as much by just being with such a genuine, caring and wonderful human being as you. I love the art of Yin yoga that you teach and have already been sharing it with my students. I have had wonderful feedback and enjoyed watching my students become playful as they attempt to embody the animals and then feel the flows. Paulie, you are not only a master in the art of Yin and Yang Yoga, you are also a master at passing it on to others in the kindest and most generous way. Thank you so very much.
