Inversions 101: Turn Things Upside-Down with Nadine Channaoui Sat, Nov 18, 2017 at 12:15 pm - 1:45 pm
Inversions 101: Turn Things Upside-Down
with Nadine Channaoui
Saturday, November 18th (12:15 - 1:45 p.m.)
 
We have all had those moments where the world flips upside-down. Sometimes the change in perspective is invited, sometimes it is frightening, and sometimes it is quite exhilarating. Yoga poses that are inverted—such as headstand, forearm stand, and handstand—mirror those moments in life that are totally flipped around. So, why not dive in? Life will inevitably invert at some point; we might as well get accustomed to it and enjoy the ride.
 
This workshop will include preparatory poses for inversions, including shapes that lengthen and strengthen the wrists, upper body, spine, and hamstrings. We will also explore mental and physical strategies that assist in inverted postures. This workshop will be catered to individuals who are fairly new to inversions, but practitioners interested in hearing introductory techniques and teaching approaches to inversions are more than welcome to join!
 
 
Pricing: $30 
 
All workshops are non-refundable.

While the turkey (or tofurkey) is in the oven, join Gerard for a Thanksgiving morning class that will leave you settled and centered for the rest of your holiday. We’ll start by bringing warmth to the body through our breath with some pranayama. Next up is a Vinyasa flow full of core work and twists, and designed to get your digestive fires going. We’ll cool down with some restorative postures that will allow you to fully receive the benefits of your active work. Feel good, do good: proceeds from this Thanksgiving Flow will be donated to the Hispanic Federation to aid Puerto Rico in hurricane relief.

Everything You Wanted to Know About Chaturanga but Were Afraid to Ask with Laura Ahrens Sat, Dec 9, 2017 at 12:15 pm - 1:45 pm

Everything You Wanted to Know About Chaturanga but Were Afraid to Ask
with Laura Ahrens
Saturday, December 9th (12:15 - 1:45 p.m.)

Widely practiced but often misunderstood, learn to unlock the power that’s held within this pose. Align with strong anatomical principles to create muscular connection and a sound skeletal architecture. Dive deeper than the body to understand how this pose provides an opportunity for us to explore ourselves and our relationships to others and the world around us. It’s a lot for just one pose. But it’s all in there.

You’ll learn:
· How to build (and/or teach) chaturanga from the ground up
· Modifications for accommodating injuries/limitations
· Exercises and postures to build required strength
· How chaturanga and its preparatory poses can be applied to more advanced asana
· How to approach the practice in a way that illuminates and changes the way we live and love.

 

Price: $25 / $20 by December 2

All workshops are non-refundable.

Envisioning the New Year: Yoga, Meditation, and Vision Boarding for 2018 with Laura Ahrens Sun, Dec 31, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Envisioning the New Year: Yoga, Meditation, and Vision Boarding for 2018

with Laura Ahrens

Sunday, December 31st (1 - 3 p.m)

 

Yoga, meditation, and envisioning become even more powerful and pertinent tools for manifestation as the new year approaches.

This workshop will include an inspiring yoga practice designed to connect us to what's at our core. We will follow this up by creating our own vision boards to distill what matters most so that we may generate and grow the life we most deeply desire. Meditation will seal everything in and strengthen our intentions.

A vision board is a collection of photographs, clippings, and other images that serve to focus our intentions and request universal influence in living the life most in line with what we want. Corkboards, pins, magazines, and scissors will be provided. If there are any personally meaningful images or items that you would like to add to your board, feel free to bring them.

 

Cost: $35 / $30 by December 24th
