Understanding Your Core

October 17 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM 

There will be NO CRUNCHES in this workshop... I promise. "The Core" is now a ubiquitous term throughout modern yoga practice. This is for good reason as we do need our "core" to stabilize our bodies as we tie ourselves up into yoga asanas. To understand the basic function of the abdominal wall we will move through a simple, invigorating practice that will re-examine the balance strength and release in our practice.

Price: $40 or attend both workshops for $75

The Fluid Spine

October 17 1:30 PM – 4:00 PM 

Back pain has become epidemic in our culture. In an effort to protect ourselves from this pain, yoga students often engage in rigid exercises in order to “protect” the spine during yoga practice. While this may cause temporary relief, it also can create excess tension in the spinal muscles from the sacrum all the way up to the neck, shoulders and skull. Tension in these muscles can also be exacerbated by everyday circumstance, such as stress, work conditions, postural habits etc. The solution, like most things, is finding a balance of strength and relaxation as we train the body to support the spine through subtle muscular action. In this workshop we will stretch, relax, and challenge our bodies as we take the spine through its full range of motion. Backbends, twists, standing postures and inversions will all be explored so please have 6 months of yoga experience under your belt.

Price: $40 or attend both workshops for $75
