January 11 – 2-4pm – Inversions: Flip Your Perspective
When we go upside down in our yoga practice it can have an energizing or a relaxing effect on the body depending on the type of inversion we choose to practice. Inversions challenge and humble us as well as create a tremendous amount of core and upper body strength. Join us as we explore how to safely turn our worlds upside down. We will cover multiple approaches to headstand and handstand and then explore the cooling effects of legs up the wall and shoulderstand. $35
January 18 – 2-4pm – Arm Balances and Advanced Transitions
This workshop will introduce students to the world of arm balances. We discuss the mechanics of crow pose and use that as a base to explore a few other arm balances as time permits (hurdler’s pose, side crow, firefly, etc). We will also explore the postures that can be used to build the strength and stamina needed to feel safe and stable in arm balances. More than any other posture, arm balances can remind us that yoga poses are not the most important part of a yoga practice, they are just one tool we can use to learn more about ourselves. It’s truly all about the journey. $35
February 8 – 2-4pm Backbends: Safe and Strong Heart-Openers
This all-levels workshop breaks down the components of big backbends such as wheel and camel in order to create a back bending practice that is structurally sound as well as expansive. We’ll discuss alignment and techniques to find ease in backbends as well as discuss the energetic implications of heart opening. For this workshop we will start with a discussion, meditation, and warm up to prepare our bodies and minds for backbends and then spend considerable time discussing and practicing the alignment and structure of wheel, camel, bow, and more. There will also be opportunities for more advanced backbends and plenty of time to counter their energetic effects with twists and restorative forward folds. $35
February 22 – 2-5pm – Sequencing for Yoga Teachers
Do you want to teach yoga classes that are joyful, safe, and sensible? Please join us for a three hour workshop where we will discuss best practices and guidelines for sequencing yoga classes in a way that is lighthearted and enjoyable but also meaningful, structured, and safe. It is possible to sequence classes creatively while still offering a practice that incorporates mindfulness and physical safety. We will discuss sequencing yoga classes based on three different methods: 1. Sequencing to a peak posture, 2. Sequencing around a philosophical idea, and 3. Sequencing with a focus on the subtle body. Expect discussion, collaboration, and self-inquiry. Please bring your mat and a notebook for journaling. Current RYTs can receive 3 CEUs. $55
