Workshop Details

An all-time favorite line from one of Harvey Deutch's patients, "I’m not doing your PT exercises!" motivated Harvey to ditch the term "exercises" and call them "Tickets to Paradise" instead. Since it is one’s own responsibility to be the primary guardian of health and well-being, why not turn the components into positive self-care?

A physical therapist and yogi since 1982, Harvey has led weekly therapeutic yoga classes, yoga teacher trainings and retreats since 2009. He blends art with science to construct and implement thoughtful, self-guided home/workplace drills and concepts to keep the mind and body sharp and in-tune. He can concisely and sequentially give you the pearls of wisdom necessary to sustain your interest and follow up with your independent programs.

During this workshop, we will:

• Explore your internal and external landscapes
• Learn functional anatomy and bio-mechanics from within
• Develop a foundational practice/mindset to improve overall posture awareness, strength and stability
• Reduce common musculoskeletal dysfunction and discomfort


We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


Experience twenty-seven acres of Pacific coastline paradise.


Make a difference and leave a legacy by becoming a Friend of Esalen.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.


Stay connected. Keep your Esalen experience alive, online or in person.
