LANSING, N.Y. — Yoga Farm, a wellness center that has attracted students from across Central New York, is launching an adult educational program called The Ways of the Sacred Warrior that combines courses in yoga, meditation, inquiry, and healing in a comprehensive curriculum at its restored century-old barn in Lansing.
An open house and celebration to launch the center’s new educational mission will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 29, at 404 Conlon Road. The three instructors who will teach the series of six continuing courses will present the curriculum at the event, which will feature food, music and door prizes.
“This is a living curriculum that helps people live healthy, happy lives by teaching them more than just yoga postures and meditation techniques,” said Christopher Grant, founder and co-director of Yoga Farm. “Our curriculum teaches students how to care for their body and mind, cultivate healthy relationships and access lasting contentment and joy.”
Grant, a certified yoga teacher, founded Yoga Farm in 2014 after serving as CEO of Gorges, a software development firm in Ithaca. Since its opening, the wellness center, nestled on a 65-acre farm, has grown steadily, attracting more than 150 students a week for drop-in yoga classes, community events and courses.
The new curriculum, will also be taught by Daniela Hess and Ravindra Walsh, who are both life coaches and spiritual directors with the HeartPath Institute, which offers individual coaching, spiritual direction, relationship healing and group classes.
“Consider the quality of your life and your relationships if you gift yourself two hours a week of quality self-care,” says Hess. “Our coursework will guide you to reconnect with your self and what is important to you. In other words, now is time is to become the version of yourself that you want to spend the rest of your life with. Our courses teach you how.”
The seven-week courses begin the second week of September. Curriculum details are at www.SacredWarrior.us. Courseregistration is available at https://yogafarm.us/yoga-
