5-6:30pm How Yoga Works (Yoga Talk) $25
Yoga practice has become many westerners favorite path to health and fitness, and without a doubt it serves this purpose well. Surprisingly, all the yoga postures we find so useful to our body’s well-being, are a small piece within a much bigger wheel revolving towards a more ambitious goal. This ancient Indian art suggests that by yoga practice we can uncover an innate seed of joy and belonging, freedom and peace – this session explains how the asanas create that link.
Saturday: 8-10am Mysore style Class $25
12-2pm Workshop: Access You Spine – How To Make Your Spine More Supple $25
This class offers means and methods towards making your spine more flexible, soothing and ready for yoga back bending. The backbends in yoga are considered most beneficial to us, with many health favors. Furthermore, they offer an entry into our psychology and a experiential understanding of the Patanjali’s yoga. We will take base in passive stretches and work towards active lengthening, all to prepare the body for the back bends of the Ashtanga sequences. You will need 2 yoga blocks and a blanket for this class. All levels welcome.
Sunday: 8-10am Mysore style Class $25
12-2pm Workshop: Strength, Bandhas and Lifting $25
Yoga proposes that we have two bodies – the external, physical body and the internal more subtle body. By making our physical body healthy, strong and flexible we find ourselves inhabiting a more enjoyable physical realm and our asana gets more successful. When we combine that with subtle activations of the internal body we begin to experience further control and success. This class aims at identifying key patterns and activations useful for more strength based movements in yoga such as jump-throughs, plank and other weight bearing on our arms.
Entire Workshop $125
