JFC Homework Week with Esak Garcia ~ Maui, Hawaii and Online ~ Dec 4-9, 2022
This is a special opportunity to spend a week with JFC founder Esak Garcia and work on some fundamental Jedi training skills that can be used to expand your practice. For 6 days in a row we will start with a hot yoga class (either 26&2 or e84 Intermediate) followed by 90 minutes to 2 hours of Jedi training. You can participate online by joining our daily livestream, or you can join Esak in Maui for a semi-private Homework Week experience. ONLY 4 SPACES AVAILABLE.
For those who join in-person in Maui, we will be working out of a small, private, heated, home-studio that fits 5 people. Your training fee includes live classes and training with Esak, and daily, raw, fresh-pressed, organic juice and a superfood smoothie. We will have a private swimming pool and garden area to enjoy together after practice, and our moderately paced schedule will allow plenty of time to explore Maui.
For participants who join online, recordings of the homework sessions and classes will be available in an effort to cater to students whose time zone may not work well with our live training schedule.
For all participants, those who join online and those who join in person, Homework Week is an inspiring way to experience the daily strength and flexibility training and mental conditioning we call Jedi Training. People who have learned Jedi Fight Club training techniques need to practice them regularly, if not daily, to experience their full effect. Those of us who do this know that most of our training time is spent alone, so taking a week to train all together motivates us and connects us to a larger community of people to play yoga with. This week is open to experienced Yogi Jedis and to newcomers alike.
The main difference between a “Homework Week” and a “Jedi Fight Club training” is the amount of time spent with the practice each day. A JFC training is a full-time daily practice (8+ hrs per day) that cultivates a disciplined mind. It is a time to set aside all other commitments and focus only on yoga training. A Homework Week is a more sustainable approach to Jedi training that can be integrated into your daily life.
As in any Jedi training, we will focus on one or two yoga skills for the week. When we work on specific skills every day, with careful and persistent technique, it doesn’t take long before we start to see progress and development.
This training will be live streamed from a private residence in Kula, Maui. Online participants will receive links to attend via Zoom. In-person participants will be given the studio address upon registration.
