13Hands aka Dalien Thursday Workshops



Heart and Solar Plexus Chakra Workshop:

“How Love and Compassion Can Fuel Your Ego 100% Full Time!” TM

Dalien, aka 13HANDS brings 30 years of yoga, shamanism and sound healing practitioner experience with 26 years of teaching, 5 near death experiences and an inspiring “humpty dumpty” tale of rebuilding his health!  This workshop incorporates a unique set of asana sequencing/alignment that encompasses Hatha, Vini muscular energy principles associated with Qigong, Iyengar, Anusara, Kundalini, Yin, specific pranayama, restorative and some technical, slow motion vinyasa aspects in order to provide a powerfully engaging and integrated asana experience that will improve circulation to the endocrine system while  improving simultaneous mastery of the para-sympathetic nervous system response.  AND there’s an extra long 30 minute, Yoga Nidra/Sound Savasana supported by Native Flutes, Gongs, Crystal Bowls, Steel and Hang drums, ambient strings and sacred, channelled, primordial vocal ambience. 

Would you like to feel more loving, forgiving, happy, empowered and open emotionally while improving one’s absorption, digestive fire and elimination processes? Well, that’s the territory we are exploring together and this workshop will create the improved circulation and regulation that can allow one’s EGO to operate from love, peace and in compassion.



“Para-sympathetic Mastery and Digestion Part 1”

DALIEN provides a pre-dinner, digestive system focused, yoga asana workshop where you NEVER leave the ground the entire time!  Deep breathing with slow, long and gentle holds while the body is rooted comfortably in seated and floor based postures will synchronize your body, nervous, endocrine and digestive system. 

Effective digestive function is rooted in a steady and trusting para-sympathetic nervous system response…. this calm, safety and security within allows for the body to work at its highest potential and absorb properly. Come experience another aspect of body, mind, theta brain wave journey  as this workshop as well will end with a 30 minute sound savasana with all his beautiful instruments (see 1pm workshop for more info on the sound savasana)… then yes!!!  We all go eat!



10:30 PMMidnight – ish

13HANDS will guide you through a shamanic journey and nada yoga sound workshop experience!! It begins with a brief overview of sound theory as it relates to balanced immunity and theta brain wave state. Then we GET COMFORTABLE in either a seated meditation or lying down position… so bring a pillow, blanket whatever you need as we set intentions in this big sonic sleepover party where you receive approximately 1 hour of live sound vibrations in order to access the body’s innate/natural healing response, various dream states and travel, DMT release, and the most blissful relaxation from a sacred soundtrack of Native Flutes, Gongs, Crystal Bowls, Steel and Hang drums, ambient strings in 432 Hz and 528 Hz tuning along with primordial chanting and voice to support your dream state. There will be some etheric ambient chanting toward the end as to guide us back… and you have the option to sit up, ground yourself back and offer your voice in community during those chants.

This is a powerful journey and meditation experience for everyone and anyone with any sort of sleep or stress related challenges.

Description: Hip Opening: Tight hips and pelvic region is the curse of the modern person. The way we sit and move in our modern culture reflects a disconnection with the earth.

Assists- Jules Febre

Sept. 1 Sunday 10:30-12:30

Learn the principles of giving powerful, safe, and transformational yoga asana assists. Developing sensitivity to directing prana (life force energy) in asana can  transform your practice as a teacher and student. Instead of focusing on learning the so-called “correct assist” for each pose, learn the principles that will empower you to create, improvise, and customize assists safely and effectively.

Yoga teachers and longtime students will benefit from these workshops.
