Are you wanting to dive into your personal yogic evolution journey with more guidance and support?

Join us for a Modern Mystic Yoga Academy sadhana (or daily practice) template and array of conventional and unconventional practices to develop your understanding of the purpose of yoga, and how to use your natural proclivities to your advantage in creating a tailor made yoga practice.  We will demystify many of the yoga practices that you perhaps have been curious about and make them as accessible as possible to you as a modern yoga practitioner.


This special two weekend Wild at Heart Empowering Yoga Journey Advanced YTT module immediately follows the "Wild at Heart Yoga 200hr YTT" finishing Autumn Equinox.  


You can take it for Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Credits as an already established Yoga teacher, 


as a (beginning or experienced) yoga practitioner to simply refine your practice and gain deeper understanding of the philosophy of moving through the sheaths, or layers of our being to abide more fully in the Ultimate Reality within.  

We will move through the layers, penetrating each one with practices to enhance our awareness of them and our capacity to embody them from our inner mystic selves.

In the first weekend, September 27-29, 2019 we will begin with the Annamaya (physical body) and Pranamaya (breath body)Koshas (layers). We will demystify Yoga postures, helping you with any specific postures that have personally eluded you and with posture flows that inspire a rich experience of blissful embodiment.  Pranayamas (breathing exercises) will also be deeply explored, and there will be time to examine in conscious contemplations the relationship between breath and higher states of mind.  

In the second weekend, October 4-6, we will move into the subtle layers: the Manamaya Kosha (mental layer), Vijnanamaya Kosha (wisdom layer) & Anandamaya Kosha (bliss layer) and how the inner self shines through and throughout these! 

So, in layman terms, the second weekend will focus more on meditation, self examination, self inquiry, defining clearly your personal mission statement/swadharma (unique duty in this lifetime), and moving into the bliss of freedom from feeling stuck in any one of the layers.


You can sign up for just 1 or both:

$275/each one or $500 for both 

and you will learn in depth more about the koshas (or 5 sheaths) and hopefully demystify some of the yogic practices and philosophies that support your liberation!

(from the Kundalini Research Institute website)
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is also known as the Yoga of Awareness; its focus is on self-awareness and delivering an experience of your highest consciousness. The technology of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is a science of the mind and body, to elevate the spirit, which has no boundaries, no discrimination. Therefore it is for everyone, universal and nondenominational. 

In the ancient tradition that is yoga, Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan® is a householder path; that is, it has always been practiced by those with families and jobs as opposed to a renunciate's path of celibacy and removal from society, which was the usual path of a yogi.
"Kundalini" literally means "the curl of the lock of hair of the beloved." This poetic metaphor alludes to the flow of energy and consciousness that exists within each of us, and enables us to merge with – or "yoke" – the universal Self. Fusing individual and universal consciousness creates a divine union, called "yoga." The Upanishads, dating back to the fifth century B.C., describe the kundalini, although the oral tradition reaches back even further into history. For thousands of years, this sacred science and technology was veiled in secrecy, passed along verbally from master to chosen disciple. Yogi Bhajan opened up these teachings because he felt that people needed it here in the West and that this time requires us to rise to our full capacity of excellence.  

*Mostly you simply need to experience it to understand it~
Come and give it a try!

Gong Bath RELAX & RESET #2  (For all those who missed our April Gong Event)
Friday June 1st from 6-7pm 
This is going to be a sweet treat for your Friday evening yogis! 

An opportunity to simply lie down in your favorite relaxing pose and be led through a guided relaxation or YOGA NIDRA and sound healing GONG Bath with Tamara Lee Standard, E-RYT, new Wenatchee transplant (who is leading the Art of Teaching Yoga Teacher Training at Worx and teaching a few weekly classes in town.)

If you haven't heard a gong before, just come ready to experience something new and different. It is very powerful, loud, and yet has the ability to help people be still mentally and cease discursive thought for a time. Afterward, one feels a sense of calmness and reset that reverberates for hours.  

The hour will begin with a few breathing exercises and then a guided journey mentally throughout the subtle body and ending with the gong to help participants deeply let go and relax from any stress they are carrying.
~ ONLY $5 members 
$10 public

An invitation to anyone who would like some uplifting yogic 
Do you take time to offer yourself sweetness?
Do you remember that being tender is part of embodying 
"the Art of Being a Yogi" ~
Relaxation and allowing the heart to be tended to with sweet attention to your inner dreams and sincere heartfelt desires is an important component to opening the heart chakra.
We can't be rigid and serious all the time!
Yogic Evolution is a mystic dance of self discovery and playfulness. Yoga is a science of movement and breath, mudra and mantra to embody freedom in all aspects of life.
~There is an art to it and if you would like to learn more, join us for our upcoming workshop on 
"The Art of Being a Yogi"
with Wild Wisdom Yogini Tamara lee (E-RYT 200)

To be a yogi is to be aligned with one's infinite source ~ to be emanating the wisdom of adhering to one's own code of Ethics.
Enjoy a few hours dedicated to recommitting to this, in your own way, but in community!

A yogi is a mystic artist scientist in their ability to fine tune and tweak a personal "sadhana" or practice that works for them individually. 
This is something they can maintain discipline with and that respects their personal goals, physical needs and personality. There is no "one-size-fits-all" in matters of the individual consciousness merging with the infinite.
It's an ongoing refining process and what worked in the beginning of one's yogic journey may no longer suffice. 
Seasoned yogis also encouraged to attend.  
(Continuing Education Credits Available also for anyone registered with Yoga Alliance.)

INCLUDED: An all-level Hatha Yoga Flow (dance of postures),
pranayama (breathing exercises), Discourse on Yogic Lifestyle (with directions from the Yoga Sutras), Conscious Contemplations (meditations) and PURE HEARTFELT Inspiration to Be YOU !
~ authentically!  
YOGA HELPS with that!
only $35 for this 3 hour yoga workshop
or $30 for Worx gym members

IMMEDIATELY following the workshop will be an informal meeting to talk about the Upcoming Yoga Teacher Training ~
If you are interested in that only, please arrive at 4:15 with any questions you have and we will share some yogi tea and discuss the details of the training.

potential further contact Tamara Lee Standard via FB DM or email to schedule a personalised Yoga session. Tamara will be offering sessions in November to give you a personal push in the direction needed to liberate yourself.

Mystic Rest
Secret to Success

and then follow it up with the melodic liturgy of yoga nidra
which is like a lullaby to increase your capacity to receive insight and wisdom and move toward moksha in an efforless manner.

Join Tamara Lee Standard

(Founder and Director of the gypsy yoga portal 
Modern Mystic Yoga Academy)

fresh from pilgrimage in Mother India
and spearheading the Yogic Evolution Tour 
for a 2 hour Empowering Yoga Class and/or a 3 hour workshop introducing how to access and accelerate your personal growth along yogic lines.

REAFFIRM why you are commited to these practices or ESTABLISH a new foundation to REVITALIZE your spiritual evolution along yogic lines.

Why do you do yoga?

Do you realize that yoga is a path designed to take you to Moksha-which is TOTAL LIBERATION? This isn't just a theory!
You may know this underneath the poses, but how well do you embody this in all your affairs? Something to examine, because the modern yogi has an opportunity to be vigilante and transform every action into a chance to positively evolve out of the mundane way of behaving and viewing life.

If you are new to yoga, this is an excellent workshop for you to begin to examine the deeper reasons you may have been drawn to this amazing technology of body and mind.

If you are a seasoned yogi, this is also good as that it might just get you fired up again, in case you need a little extra push at this point in your evolution.  

The yogic path is actually a revolutionary path, not just a fad. 

It’s a radical practice that has the potential to lead one out of the cycle of suffering for good. 

In this workshop we will explore what this means and begin to assess honestly where we are on this spectrum. In later classes and retreats, this will be explored in depth.

This immersion day introduces the first step though, which is to elevate the consciousness enough to discover the courage to do the work. 


Elevate and Empower Yoga 1-3pm $22

An elevating asana practice with breath work and Kundalini inspired kriyas and meditations that assists in feeling empowered to take the steps to freedom.

Yogic Evolution Immersion 4-7pm $44

Consciousness expanding practices, like conscious communication, self-empowerment meditations and mental yoga assessment writing exercises will be explored in this modernized and ancient wisdom distilled workshop to take full and complete ownership for your personal evolution as a yogi or yogini.

Tamara Lee Standard, Evolution Ally/Specialist is a wild wisdom yogini who has used both conventional and unconventional techniques to release her’self’ from the bondage of ‘self’. As founder of the Modern Mystic Yoga Academy, she has led Yoga Teacher Trainings, Immersions, and remote location Retreats. Devoted to liberation since childhood, formally introduced to yoga from her father’s copy of the Gita and Upanishads and his profound understanding combined with applicable commentary, she has been participating in the yogic world for over 20 years and understands deeply the path and the struggles one faces in the modern world to maintain a sadhana or personal practice. From teaching yoga on the streets to active addicts, (living in painful addictive cycles herself and coming through them as well), to gyms and fancy studios, Tamara has moved beyond mainstream yoga now. Her 'certificate' demonstrating dedicated commitment to meditation comes as the fact she completed a 3 year meditation retreat, where she was able to live like a yogini in silence and isolation, piercing the veils of delusion and laying to rest remnants of her old self with Yogic and Tibetan Buddhist practices. This assisted her in strengthening her intuitive capacity and ability to guide students in personal practices appropriate for their evolutionary stage. Adept in fear elimination and mental housekeeping, she is an excellent guide to navigating through old habits and embracing a new lifestyle in line with yogic wisdom. People love her charisma, down to earth nature and wealth of practical experience.

The Yogic Evolution Tour continues at High Desert Sanctuary with an opportunity to move into a supportive meditative cocoon for an evening and learn techniques to create an internal bridge to higher states of mind. Meditation has often been shrouded in so much mystery, and this workshop will assist in demystifying the hype and making meditation accessible to you, in a very personal way.
Join Tamara Lee, meditation explorer of many years including 3 years committed to its intense formal practice in a Tibetan Buddhist Tantric Retreat, in this intimate setting to examine what you can do to establish a meditation practice that works for you sincerely.  
Come prepared to sit, and stretch as well. A few yoga poses and yogic breathing techniques will also be included, as well as writing and time for questions and answers. This is a safe place to talk about meditation challenges and to understand more deeply why this is perhaps the most important aspect of one’s yogic evolution to develop, as that it affects the mind and all that you perceive so profoundly. But if done incorrectly, can also just keep one spinning in circles and feeling confused. 

~If you decide you want ongoing meditative guidance, Tamara Lee Standard is also available for private sessions where evolution is the theme and uncovering remnants of the ego blocks weighing you down are accessed to dismantle and eliminate. She is an excellent coach because her enthusiasm is contagious and will help you when the going gets tough. Please contact her at to set up a consultation.
