Upcoming workshops in 2019

Sunday December 15th with Hugh Millard

2-5pm. Level 1/2 and up.  $50

 
 

 

Hugh is an exceptional teacher.  His attention to detail brings meaning to the words we use to describe actions.  He studied with Donald Moyer for a period of time, and more recently with Firooza Razvi.  Iyengar said that there are limits to what we know, but no limits to what we don’t know.  Hugh’s teaching helps us know a little bit more about ourselves, through understanding our most manifest being – our body.

Wednesday December 18th: Winter Solstice Celebration with Jess and Cher.

6-8pm

Join us for our annual tradition to bring in the light of the new year.  We will practice asana, pranayama and meditation in an effort to invite contemplation and awareness of ourselves at this quiet dark time.  Nature sees to it that we must let go in order to grow and change.  

 

$20

$20 or $5 surcharge on your class card.  All levels welcome.

Looking into 2020… more details on all these workshops soon.

Sunday January 5th: Connect to your core: A workshop with Jess. 2-4.30pm.  level 1 and up.

 

$40

Through this workshop you will discover a new understanding of your core. We are limited in thinking that the core is limited to the abdominal region. Author Tom Myers writes in his book “Anatomy Trains” that the core begins at the arch and inner ankles and ends at the tongue. Come and explore a new concept of core! A strong core brings freedom of movement, relief from lower back and hip pain, and a sense of being grounded.

Sunday January 19th: An Introduction to Somatic Movement with Jeni Ascosi.  2-4pm. $40.

This work addresses patterns of pain and discomfort in the body, using movement that improves body-mind integration while creating an inner-environment of well-being.  I have personally worked with Jeni for several years and am thrilled to have her come and introduce her vital and important work to us.  The movements compliment and deepen your yoga practice, amplifying awareness of, and offering relief to previously unseen patterns of tension that some of us have carried throughout our emotional and psychological lives.  It is open to anyone who seeks to understand themselves more deeply. 

 

$40

Sunday February 2nd: Back bends with Jess.  2-4.30pm. level 1/2 and up.

 

$40

Back bends are uplifting, energizing, and create space from the inside. They are natural anti depressants and foster a feeling of positive energy and openness.  They are a vehicle for cultivating strong, integrated willpower and bring a deeper sense of awareness.  Explore the fundamental principles which allow you to practice these postures safely, and fully.

Sunday March 22nd: A day with Genny Kapuler. Level 1/2 and up

May 1-3: A weekend workshop with Advanced Iyengar Yoga teacher Peter Scott.  Level 1/2 and up.
