Finding Equanimity

Intermediate ✺ 18 - 24 May 2024 ✺ The Relais, Sorrento, Italy

Immerse yourself in the art of finding equanimity, liberating yourself to maintain a sense of balance and calm, even in the midst of life’s unravelings.
Join CJ & Shelby for a yoga experience centered around compassion and love, forging a deeper connection with both yourself and the world around you.
Cultivating mindful attention is a powerful tool that allows us to stay present in the moment and observe our mind, body, and emotions with a sense of detachment. The practice helps us express and embrace the full spectrum of our being while aiming to release the tension of daily life, creating spaciousness to root yourself in the wisdom of our soul. 
Give yourself the gift of presence to ground into the moment and feel your way back to peace and freedom within.

Carleton James Yeagley

CJ gravitates towards connection. Connection with movement, to people, to his emotions of mind, body & spirit. He found yoga after playing sports growing up and throughout college. Wanting to learn more about the asana side of the practice, CJ found Patrick Beach, Carling Harps, & Awakening Yoga Academy. He’s been learning and training with them for the past seven years and has been a full-time yoga teacher for the past nine years. CJ has a Masters in Exercise Science and has taught 1000+ hours of public classes, not including workshops, retreats, and private sessions. He has filmed 100+ classes on Patrick & Carling’s yoga platform, Commune Online, consisting of strong vinyasa and ease-filled practices. CJ’s classes are a wonderful balance of structure & freedom. Meeting you in your moment of effort & ease. He hopes to leave you with good vibes and positive energy.

Shelby Heintzelman

Shelby strives to help people gain awareness in their bodies, encouraging attention to the breath to move them into a mind-body connection. Her flows are a combination of strength and balance with intentional movement woven into a mindfully creative sequence. Shelby received her 200hr vinyasa training with Yoga Works in Santa Monica, CA. She since has continued to train under Patrick Beach and Carling Harps, where she went on to complete her 300hr advanced training with Awakening Yoga Academy. She also has filmed 100+ classes on Patrick & Carling’s yoga platform, Commune Online, consisting of strong vinyasa and ease-filled practices.

Her sincere goal is for people to learn how to show up for themselves, practice compassion, self love, and use their yoga practice as a time for them to turn inward and release the stresses of life. Shelby’s hope is that people leave her classes feeling inspired, challenged, fresh, and with a sense of clarity that translates into their everyday lives.
