breathwork ceremony

led by tai hubbert​

sun. aug. 27 • 4-6:30pm

$65 pre-registration required

“What an incredible introduction to breathwork. The ceremony was amazing, humbling, and life changing.” –N.S.

as the breath is the only function of the autonomic nervous system that can be consciously controlled, it serves as a potent gateway to healing, transformation, and liberation. ​

In this ceremony, you will engage an active, connected breathing technique to create a powerful healing state in the body in which old energetic holdings can be processed and released, and your lifeforce energy reclaimed.

In recalibrating the body to it’s natural state, one can experience greater physical energy and vitality, mental clarity, creativity and inspiration, ease of being, and capacity to feel empowered in life.

Tai holds a strong, compassionate, and sacred container for deep work of the Self, and you will receive individual support throughout the journey, including hands-on work and shamanic healing. This work serves as a transformative catalyst to living in greater alignment with one’s true Nature, for the benefit of all.

“When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything.” –Thich Nhat Hanh

Join Tai every month at ritual house for a holistic practice that engages the various limbs of yoga to support personal growth and discovery, on and off the mat.

Each Sunday session is crafted around a theme of inquiry drawing from yogic and perennial philosophy, including a dharma talk and all-levels asana practice that integrates refined asana work, breath, mantra, and somatic practices to support increasing awareness and discernment (viveka). The sadhana will conclude with a long shavasana and seated meditation to support integration, surrender, and alignment in the verticality of Being.

This series will resonate with advancing practitioners seeking to lean into the deeper essence of the teachings for increasing awareness and wakefulness, along with focused asana work and study of the forms to develop a rich and fruitful practice.

women’s breathwork circle

led by tai hubbert

wed. sep. 13 • 7-9p​ • $55

“The ceremony was the most profound healing experience I have had to date.” –T.F.

In the potent field that’s created when women come together in support of healing and awakening, you will engage an active, connected breathing technique to create the conditions for healing in your body, and reconnect to the wisdom that lies beyond any confusion, self-doubt, and sense of smallness.

In reclaiming the fullness of your breath, your body has the opportunity to discharge energetic holdings (from trauma, daily stressors, undigested emotional experiences, etc.) that consume your life force energy and limit your capacity to rest in your body with ease, clarity, joy, love, and power.

Tai holds a strong, compassionate, and sacred container for deep work of the Self, and you will receive individual support throughout the journey, including hands-on work and shamanic healing.

Breathwork is of benefit to anyone interested in living one’s highest potential, and no prior experience is required. As this process can be physically and emotionally demanding, please contact Tai (tai@swordandlotus.com) or ritual house of yoga prior to registration if you have any of the following conditions: pregnancy, severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, bipolar disorders or schizophrenia, or recent major surgeries or communicable diseases.

What is Real: Choosing Love over Fear

taught by erika ramberg

sun sept 24 •​ 1-3:30p •​ $30

Join Erika for a workshop utilizing the yoga practice as a means to explore the question: what is real? Yoga philosophy tells us we are already enlightened, we have just forgotten the way. What led us astray? What is at the root of this misunderstanding?

The yoga sutras explain the root of this misunderstanding through the kleshas (afflictions). Due to avidya (ignorance), asmita (clinging to ego), raga (attachment), dvesha (aversion) and abinivesha (fear of death), we move into a false perception of ourselves in our world. We mistake our thoughts for reality. We confuse what is changing for what is permanent. We tell stories about our lives and thus cease to live them authentically.

Yoga empowers us see through this confusion and lends us bravery to connect to the relationship of direct experience. Through yoga asana we gain the opportunity to look at our attachments, aversions and fears head on, and begin to sort out what is real in our bodies, minds, and our relationships.

This workshop will begin with discussion and will move onto asana practice. We will approach postures that can bring up aversion or fear. And yes, this means some inversions. We’ll be sure to include meditation and will close with a guided relaxation to allow the transformative potential of the practice to take root.

This workshop is recommended for students with a base knowledge of yoga poses (asana practice).

thanks! we look forward to meeting you.
