Live Stream Self Adjustment Yoga Workshop $20Purchase required to enroll

with Dina Bronson, RYT 500
2-3:30PM, Sunday, July 12
$20
Members: Use Coupon Code MEMBERS10 FOR 10% OFF.

For many of us, the moment our teacher assists us in a yoga asana is pure heaven! But it's rare for a teacher to be able to assist every student in every posture. And with the current state of the world, most of us are practicing home alone. It can be extremely empowering to learn to self-assist, both for our home practice, and for the future when we once again practice in community. This is equally true for those of us who prefer not to receive hands on instruction when we are practicing in a group.

In this workshop, we'll spend some time discussing the principles and guidelines of asana adjustments, the overall goals of assists, some basic principles of alignment, and the way to assess the intention of a posture. We'll then warm up our bodies with some sun salutations so we can safely move more deeply into our postures. Following that, we'll go through the mechanics of specific adjustments for postures we do very often, as well as general suggestions for classes of postures that we meet in our practice. There will be time to practice these assists, as well as ask questions and get feedback. There's a "raise your hand" button on zoom! Looking forward to helping you deepen your practice!

Familiarity with basic yoga postures recommended.

A Recording of this class will be available for 3 days.




Live Stream Physics of Flight Yoga Workshop $20Purchase required to enroll

In this workshop we will move through the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, focusing on building strength in the shoulders and upper back to give you more airtime as you (perhaps) float forward! From sun salutation A we will work on correct alignment for chaturanga dandasana, transferring the weight to hands, and jumping the feet to hands. Coming down to seated we will bring the focus toward lifting yourself up, jumping back, and floating through. The postures we will practice are also wonderful building blocks toward challenging inversions like headstand or handstand. Come hydrated, and ready to sweat!

This workshop will be recorded and available for viewing for 3 days.

As we move into deep summer while continuing our distancing practices, our systems can get overheated or overwhelmed. Checking into our body-mind-spirit through the lens of the chakra system can help us settle into ourselves more fully, giving us a window into our energetic and emotional bodies, offering us the time/space to bring our breath and attention to any areas that may need healing energy.

Following a brief discussion of the chakra system, based upon the wisdom of yoga, energy, and non-duality, we will flow through a yoga asana practice that will cleanse, charge, and balance your whole physical and energetic body. Moving from the root chakra all the way to the crown, we will bring our attention to each chakra in sequence. The practice will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to bring your whole self forward into this new world.

All levels welcome. No prior knowledge of the chakras necessary.

This workshop will be recorded and available for viewing for 3 days.

Yoga Retreat in Playa Grande, Costa Rica $750Purchase required to enroll

with Jo Kirsch and Bob Speck
December 2-9, 2020
From $2,140

Join us for a week of yoga and adventure in beautiful Costa Rica. Return to your natural state of balance, harmony and peace, while practicing yoga in this tranquil and rejuvenating setting. We'll stay at the RipJack Inn, a Boutique Hotel located just 245 feet from the beach in Playa Grande, Costa Rica. RipJack Inn has a beautiful Yoga Shala, a tree top restaurant with some of the best food in the country, swimming pools and more. Playa Grande is a National Park that protects the Leatherback Turtle with miles of pristine beaches along the Pacific Ocean.

This is a wonderful opportunity to nurture your body, mind and soul with morning meditation, revitalizing and balancing yoga classes, delicious food, and great company. There will be plenty of free time daily to relax and play, and two group excursions are planned to explore the beautiful beaches and gorgeous ocean of Playa Grande. If you have a partner or a family member who would love a tropical vacation, but is not "into yoga”, that's okay too. There is plenty to explore and lots of time to enjoy the beach and the surrounding area. Or, maybe this is the time they can get "turned on" to the practices, which will be accessible to Every Body (and always optional)!


Reserve your spot with a $750 non-refundable deposit. Balance due August 25, 2019
