Yin Yoga: Energize, Balance, and Restore with Manisha Tare Sun, Nov 9, 2014 at 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm

Enter into a deep meditative space in this two hour practice inclusive of yin postures, pranayama, meditation and restorative poses. As you allow yourself to soften into each pose over several minutes, release the active grip of the muscles and observe your breath, thoughts and emotions as you settle in. On a physical level, this practice helps to reduce tension in the muscles and promote flexibility. On the mental and emotional levels, the memories that may feel 'stuck' in our tense muscles have a chance to release from the body. This practice activates and balances our subtle body energy. It is a wonderful complement to an active yang practice as well as an entry into meditation through focusing on the senses. Once you have experienced more openness and flexibility in the body, we will integrate sitting meditation and breath work to further balance the energy and conclude with several restorative postures to deepen your capacity to let go. Prepare yourself to start the week refreshed and rejuvenated! All levels are welcome.

Curvy Yoga Backbends with Emily Star Sat, Nov 15, 2014 at 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

In this workshop, we'll explore one of the most therapeutic pose families. If you feel regularly hunched over from hours behind a computer or steering wheel, it becomes all the more important to learn how to un-tense your shoulders and neck.
 
Once we learn strategies for that, we'll explore how your whole body can be supported with props and key muscle actions to find ease in variations of cobra, camel, bridge, and even wheel!
 
Energetically, backbends stimulate the Anahata Chakra, or heart center. Jivamukti yoga teacher Sharon Gannon writes, "Backbends take us into our future. As they open our heart, we begin to forgive others and let go of seeing ourselves as victims. We can through forgiveness dissolve the hurts that have kept us from our true nature, which is love….With practice, we develop tremendous strength that enables us to move forward in life with a sense of adventure, fearlessly, with joy, confidence, compassion and love—the path to enlightenment.”

Curvy Yoga Inversions Workshop with Emily Star Sat, Jan 17, 2015 at 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Inversions provide a host of benefits: they stimulate the crown and throat chakras, allow the lymph system to drain and for the heart to have to pump less vigorously, and teach us how to live calmly even when our world is upside-down.
 
However, they are not often taught in a curvy-accessible way. We'll practice a variation of shoulderstand that is completely supported and restorative, learn how to use straps to not become suffocated by our bosoms, and work with partners, props, and the wall to explore this exciting and energizing family of poses.
 
Cost: $20/person or Pre-Register for all 3 Curvy Workshops for $55.
