Foam roller yoga
Nov. 10th 6-8 pm
This workshop will give you a deeper understanding behind why we get sore joints, stiff muscles and fatigued bodies. You will learn a lot about the fascia (connective tissue) that is wrapped throughout the whole body giving it the structure and flexibility that is required for a healthy vibrant well being. We will be incorporating the foam roller and tennis balls to rehydrate the tissues creating more flow, flexibility and fluidity. Allowing the system to rejuvenate through a calm relaxed nervous system. This is a slower practice and the sequence will include long holds to get deeper into the tissues and help unwind some stored up energy that gets stuck in the physical, mental and emotional bodies.
Please bring your foam roller if you have one.
The philosophy behind Ashtanga yoga
Nov. 20th 10-12:30 p.m. (Sunday)
In this workshop we will be learning the modified primary series that is founded by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois.
This is the foundation to the popular style of yoga classes known as vinyasa flow that is taught at a lot of studios now in the west.
It is based off of the 8 limb path from The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali which is an ancient Indian text.
This is a very invigorating practice so be prepared to move. Each posture is held with 5 ujjayi breaths. We will also be discussing and weaving in the philosophy to understand that there is much more to your yoga practice than the physical asanas (postures) that you do.
More workshops coming in Dec.!!!!
