most people’s journey to training involves a lot of questions, conversation, and curiosities. email us to get the ball rolling and see if this training is a good fit for you.

​training overview:

This training exposes you to many different lineages, draws on different backgrounds and methodologies, and seeks to expand your understanding of self in order to draw out the teacher within. We hope to show you the transformational process of yoga first and foremost as a way to feel more whole as a person. From that place, our hope is to introduce you to the place you will teach from.

The term Integrated Vinyasa embodies the multitude of practices we will draw on in order to teach to the intelligence of the body, offer a solid vinyasa foundation and create a container for the exploration of differences within lineage and style. Our hope is that the exposure to many lineages and experiences will spark your own connection to whatever is most true for you, while also providing you a consistent format to start from.

training will primarily meet weekly on wednesday 6-9p, thursday 6-9p, and saturday 12:00-6:30p. email us with questions or for the application!

breathwork ceremony

led by tai hubbert​

sat. jan 25

​[event is full]​

6:30-9p •​​ $65* • room 2​​

“what an incredible introduction to breathwork. the ceremony was amazing, humbling, and life changing.” –n.s.

as the only function of the autonomic nervous system that can be consciously influenced, the breath is one of the most powerful tools available to affect systemic change and to support holistic well-being. in this experiential and therapeutic journey, you will be guided in a process of conscious, connected breathing to liberate non-productive patterns held in the body (and mind), and reconnect to your own rooted presence.

as a somatic healing modality, breathwork can serve as a powerful adjunct to traditional psychotherapy ­– a vehicle to access that which lies beyond the reach of the conscious mind. it can also catalyze expanded states of awareness in which profound insight and understanding can be illuminated. as such, breathwork serves one’s capacity to meet life from a place of greater presence, authenticity, resilience, and empowerment.

tai holds a strong, compassionate, and sacred container for deep work of the soul, and you will receive individual healing support throughout the journey. for more information about the nature of this work and preparation for the ceremony, please visit tai’s website: http://www.swordandlotus.com/aboutbreathwork

**although this practice is simple in technique, it can be strong in effect. if any of the conditions apply to you, please contact tai (tai@swordandlotus.com) to discuss further prior to registering: pregnancy, severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, bipolar disorders or schizophrenia, recent major surgeries, or history of significant trauma.

these ceremonies are limited to 15 participants and regularly reach capacity. pre-register in advance below.

women’s breathwork circle

led by tai hubbert​

fri. feb 7 ​ [event is full]​​

6:30-9p •​​ $65* • room 2​​

“the ceremony was the most profound healing experience i have had to date.” –t.f.

----

*women’s circle are open to 15 women (anyone identifying as female) each month *pre-registration required ($65); read through cancelation information for this event below.​

In the potent field that’s created when women come together in support of healing, integration, and growth, you will be guided in an experiential and therapeutic journey of conscious breathing to support greater flow, freedom, and clarity in your body, and in your life.

As the only function of the Autonomic Nervous System that can be consciously influenced, the breath is a powerful tool to affect systemic change and support holistic wellbeing. In engaging a continuous breath within a safe container of support, you can unwind non-productive patterns and liberate tension and trauma (and related old stories) held in the body, and influence the nervous system response so you can meet life from a place of greater presence, equanimity, resilience, sovereignty, and empowerment.

This form of breathwork - similar to Rebirthing and Transformational styles - can also be a catalyst for expanded states of awareness, in which profound insight and understanding can be illuminated, as well as reconnection to a depth of presence that is beyond the limits of the thinking mind.

Tai holds a strong, compassionate, and sacred container for deep work of the soul, and you will receive individual healing support throughout the journey. For more information about the nature of this work and preparation for the ceremony, please visit Tai’s website: http://www.swordandlotus.com/aboutbreathwork

**Although this practice is simple in technique, it can be strong in effect. If any of the conditions apply to you, please contact Tai (tai@swordandlotus.com) to discuss further prior to registering: pregnancy, severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, bipolar disorders or schizophrenia, recent major surgeries, or history of significant trauma.

the fine print:

registration for RH events are non-refundable within 48hrs of the event start time and are non-transferrable (for another event, or to another person).

studio doors lock promptly at the start of all events to protect the privacy + belongings of students, as well as to promote sanctity of space in the yoga room once an event has started. additionally, we do not have a studio phone; please email us (info@ritualhouseseattle.com) if you need support in any way! ​

Feb 9th Topic: “The most potent political sedative in women’s history”: Opening our eyes to diet culture

Hey, you there! Yes, you with a body! This workshop is for you. It is hard to have a body and exist peacefully in today’s weight-and-health-obsessed culture.

Let’s gather as a community to support each other in showing up in life unapologetically, with inner strength and confidence.

Prepare yourself for a perspective shift: we’ll begin with conversation to become wise to the harms and oppression of diet culture. Breath practices, mindfulness, writing prompts, and accessible movement will follow to bring out your inner fierce.

This is an inclusive space - all bodies, all genders, all humans are welcome.

Come as you are. Bring a journal, an open heart, and a curious mind.

men’s breathwork ceremony

led by tai hubbert​

sat. feb 22nd

4-6:30p •​​ $65 • room 2​​

“what a truly extraordinary experience. i was simply blown away.” –s.l.

this breathwork ceremony is offered as a dedicated space for men to come together in support of healing, integration, and engaging from a place of deeper purpose, authenticity, power, and freedom. it is an opportunity to reclaim the full spectrum of one’s being and integrate that which has been dissociated, fragmented, and sublimated due to cultural, familial, and relational conditioning, and to the various experiences of daily life.

the afternoon will be an experiential journey of active, deep breathing in which nonproductive patterns held in the body and mind can be accessed and released. as the only function of the autonomic nervous system that can be consciously influenced, breathwork is a powerful tool for accessing that which is stored in the body and subconscious, typically beyond the reach of more narrative and analytical-based processes. in engaging a continuous, deep breathing pattern, you can track upstream to the root of symptoms manifesting downstream, including experiences of inner conflict, disassociation and numbness, shame, anger, depression, anxiety, insomnia, judgment, addiction, and a myriad of physical and psychological ailments.

this practice – similar to holotropic, rebirthing, and transformational styles of breathwork – is also a vehicle for opening the doors of perception and accessing “non-ordinary states of consciousness” that can bring about profound new perspective, understanding, and insight to support inspired, aligned, and authentic living.

tai holds a strong, compassionate, sacred, and masculine-loving container for deep work of the self, and you will receive individual support throughout the journey. for more information about the nature of this work and preparation for the ceremony, please visit tai’s website: http://www.swordandlotus.com/c...

**although this practice is simple in technique, it can be strong in effect. if any of the conditions apply to you, please contact tai (tai@swordandlotus.com) to discuss further prior to registering: severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, bipolar disorders or schizophrenia, recent major surgeries, or history of significant trauma.

Together, we will share our stories through speaking and journaling, as well as other creative outlets.
