Tuesday Jan 31 – Thursday Feb 2, 2012

Tue 1/31/2012 From: 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Opening Your Heart: Elements of Backbending

Some of us have a spine like cooked linguini and don’t need to think about backbending. Some of us begin to hyperventilate when we attempt basic backbends. In this workshop we will break down individual elements that allow us to backbend with control and comfort. Working with partners we will explore shoulders, hip flexors our front, our foundation and our breath. ALL LEVELS, ALL STYLES OF PRACTITIONERS WELCOME.

Wed 2/1/2012 From: 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM

Ashtanga for Meditation

All asana practices can be used to prepare us and take us into a meditative state (Dhyana). When we just breathe and move, Ashtanga can become a moving meditation. We will start this class with a guided Ashtanga practice, turning into and awakening our energetic body. We will then take this lite energetic awareness into a 30-minute guided charka meditation. If your week at work or home has been stressful and making your mind rampant, this session will scrub it clean setting the tone for a relaxing weekend. ALL LEVELS, ALL STYLES OF PRACTITIONERS WELCOME!

Wed 2/1/2012 From: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Opening Your Lotus: Elements of Sitting

For many of us, putting ourselves into Padmasana is NOT easy. And sitting there comfortably for more than 60-seconds can be like a Tapas practice of will and determination. This class will use a sequence of seated asanas to slowly, slowly free the restricted parts of the body that need to be loose to comfortably come into Padmasana and sit in peace. We can then use this new Asana, or seat, to ground ourselved for pranayama and meditation. ALL LEVELS, ALL STYLES OF PRACTITIONERS WELCOME!

Thu 2/2/2012 From: 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM

The Magic of Bandhas

Currently SOLD OUT – call or email to get on waitlist

How do I jump thru and jump back?! How do I do handstands?! When will I float?! The seemingly magic of bandhas that allows us to fly is a gradual process that is developed over time with steady practice. But, if we can’t understand the basic physics of activating our core, we can remain stuck to the earth indefinitely. In this workshop we will break down individual elements that allow us to experience weightlessness in all elements in our practice. ALL LEVELS, ALL STYLES OF PRACTITIONERS WELCOME.
