Lodgepole School of Wholistic Studies

Our school is a place that supports community, where we share knowledge of our ancestors, teachers, elders and mentors. It is a place for quality wholistic and herbal education, and a gathering place for gifted teachers and healers to share their knowledge.

The ancestors taught us the significance of the Lodgepole pine, a straight strong tree that supported the great tipis of the foothills and prairies. The people of this land teach us that the trees are our brothers and sisters. They call them the standing people, the chiefs of the plant kingdom. This tree provided the breathe of life, shelter, fuel for fire, medicines and spiritual teachings.

 

Define Yoga

Revolving around the guiding principles of our ethos we stress an ethic of self inquiry which emphasizes the Hatha tradition of asana and physical liberation, philosophical debate, and Raja Yoga meditation. Define Yoga was founded with the intention to offer courses and education in Yoga, philosophy and meditation, which challenge and redefine the notion of what Yoga actually is. This question or challenge, lies at the center of the school's collective intention and continues to inspires and move us forward in in the spirit of learning and growth.
