Primitive pottery workshop

Prehistoric humans learned to turn mud and water into beautiful ceramic vessels. You can have this same experience at Kelly Place, guided by a renowned artist in primitive pottery.

Learn about the different types of pottery created at different cultural periods by the Ancestral Puebloans who inhabited the southwest centuries ago as you create your own "primitive" vessel. Make your own paintbrush, just as the Puebloans did. Finally, the firing of the dried pieces can also be done in a primitive way, in an outdoor firepit.

In a one day course, you can accomplish everything except the firing. You may leave with your own unfired piece or choose to have it fired in an outdoor pit (fire restrictions may apply).

The cost of a full day lesson in primitive ceramics for up to four individuals is 325 USD, materials included. For each additional person is 60 USD. Firing your pieces in an outdoor pit is an additional 250 USD for the group and requires at least another day to complete the process. All pottery workshops must be arranged in advance. Arrangements depend on the availability of the artist or teacher.

At an additional cost you may have Swedish, Shiatsu, Thai yoga, and trigger point massage. Rates may vary for each massage.

    "Zenality's immersion teacher training changed my life. Pamela and Erica were the most supportive individuals a student could ask for. They provided us with the perfect environment to delayer, blossom, and go from yoginis to yogis. I honestly wish I could repeat the experience because it was that amazing. I definitely recommend this school."

    "Both of the main teachers at Zenality have wonderful yoga practices and are genuinely nice folks to be around. I've been to two of their trainings - one near Cortez, Colorado, and one near Mount Shasta, California. I can't decide which location was better!"

    "Attending this 200-hour yoga teacher training in Bend, Oregon met and exceeded all of my expectations. I had been practicing yoga with Pamela at Zenality Yoga and decided to become a yoga teacher, after retiring as an elementary education teacher. The manual and curriculum we followed were outstanding, from the history and philosophy through the anatomy and asana studies. The meditation, hiking, and nature experiences enhanced the entire journey. I have come into the yoga experience and teaching later in life, and I have to thank Pamela for allowing me to be the best I can be! I am teaching at a small studio with students from ages forties through seventies and am thankful for this amazing, life-changing yoga journey."

    "The Zenality School of Yoga teacher training provided an in-depth look at the various nuances of yoga. My goal for the immersion experience was to understand yoga at its most fundamental level while developing the tools to share my passion for yoga with others through teaching. I could not be happier with my experience working with the Zenality School of Yoga, and I would recommend the program to anyone seeking to gain a deeper understanding of yoga, from asana to pranayama and beyond, all aspects of yoga are explored."

    "Training with Zenality Yoga was the most rewarding experience I've had to date. Self-discovery is unavoidable with the challenging curriculum presented to the student! I would recommend this school to anyone looking to deepen their knowledge of the intense physical aspect of asanas and the metaphysical meditation techniques explored."
