Two master yoga teachers with 72 years of experience between them will collaborate to hold a Weekend Yoga Workshop Oct. 19-21 at Ketchum’s Limelight Hotel.

Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee will offer an Advanced Track costing $275 that will meet from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday and Sunday.

An All Levels Track, which costs $225, runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday and 2 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The workshops, supported by Zenergy Health Club and Spa, include Asana, philosophy, pranayama and meditation.

It has been 13 years since Rodney Yee has taught here, and Colleen Saidman Yee has never taught here, said Cathie Caccia, who is organizing the workshop. The depth and detail of instruction the two offer concerning postures, breath, mind, quality of energy and effort, focus and purpose is illuminating, she added.

“They travel the world teaching yoga and offer exceptional wisdom and insights to the depth and power of this centuries-old discipline,” said Caccia. “They offer the practice in a way that inspires deep self-inquiry that helps us see more clearly how we are operating in our lives and in the world. The weekend will be a deep immersion into Yoga and Self. Habitual patterns will be revealed and released. Students will feel rooted in their most authentic self.”

Colleen Saidman Yee calls yoga “a search for space, physically and emotionally.”

“We aren't trying to erase our stories but to place them in a larger context,” she explained. “What happens when you put a teaspoon of salt in a cup of water? The water becomes highly salty. What happens when you put a teaspoon of salt in a lake? The salt is there but its impact is minimal. In yoga, we aim to become the lake, to put our problems and issues into that larger context so we aren't thrown off balance as easily, so we can keep connected to our centers.”

Yoga helps people sit with their traumas and observe them, instead of trying to run from them, she added.  

“We notice where the blockages and obstacles in our bodies are, and we recognize the stories we create to hold them there. Physical injuries can create scar tissue. Fear and grief and pain also create debilitating, invisible scar tissue. Yoga practice often brings these unconscious blockages to the surface and helps release them.”
