Backbends: From Earth to Akasha
level 1 and up
Backbends are exhilarating poses that embody power and grace. For the beginner they can seem challenging at first, as they demand strength and a willingness to dive into the unknown. Moving from earth into space, from the arms and legs to the spine, we will learn how to use the elemental body to become more skillful in our efforts, so that the mind penetrates inward and we learn to experience the tremendous depth and vastness of our inner embodiment. As BKS Iyengar says, it is then that we know not only “the freedom in the spine, but also the freedom in the spirit.”
An afternoon of Thai Massage
with Tricia Scott
Sunday September 28th. 2-4.30pm. $35.
Bring a friend, spouse or partner and experience
Traditional Thai Bodywork, an ancient healing art form rooted in Yoga, Ayurveda, and Buddhist spiritual practice. Often referred to as “lazy man’s yoga”, it combines rhythmic massage, acupressure, stretching, rocking and gentle twisting. Applied with “metta” or loving kindness, we will explore techniques that soften tight muscles and release tension and stress, revitalizing both the giver and receiver.
No prior experience is required. Tricia guides easy-to-follow sequences, appropriate for everyone. Each participant will both give and receive a one-hour massage. We work fully clothed, on mats and blankets on the floor. Please wear loose, soft clothing and bring a pillow.
Tricia Scott completed advanced training in Thai Yoga Bodywork Therapy in 2000 and maintains a private practice in Hurley, NY.

Yoga for Teens with Joanne Leffeld.
New series begins November 2014.
Build strength, flexibility, and confidence.
Focus and Calm your Mind.
Yoga builds strength, confidence and a deep sense of self control and wellbeing. School sports build strength in the limbs but pay little attention to the overall health of the spine. Kids and teens spend more time than any previous teen generation in sedentary poses, often slouching over computers. Abdominals weaken, shoulders tighten, neck and headaches often result as well as a tight lower back. A regular yoga practice can change the paradigm. This series aims to give teens an awareness of their spine – from the perspective of building a strong core, open shoulders and a lifted chest (known to be an anti-depressent).
Checks made payable to Joanne Leffeld. Bring your check on the first day of class.
