a brief educational program for a group of people that focuses on techniques and skills in a particular field
You attend yoga classes regularly, or maybe you are newer to the practice. You want to step it up a notch, or your just trying to figure it all out.
A yoga workshop can offer tools and experiences beyond those usually included in a typical 90-minute class. A workshop can last a few hours or take place over a long weekend, highlighting a single technique or topic or encompassing several. The possibilities are endless, but they all have one thing in common: a shift of awareness to dive deeper into yourself and your practice.
Stay tuned! Currently planning for Winter 2019 and Spring 2020…

Open Your Heart: Back Bending Workshop
Back bending can invigorate, terrify, and crack your heart wide open. This powerful practice doesn’t have to be scary. When the body is properly warmed up across the front, back and lateral planes: deeper backbends can be fluid, instinctual and full of ease. You will be skillfully led through a sequence of postures that warm up the body, with special focus on the shoulders, hamstrings, hips, chest and upper back, hip flexors and pelvis. Using a creative flow with emphasis on the space behind the heart and the side body, we will move toward deeper backbends including Locust, Camel, Bow, Bridge and Wheel. Helpful, accessible modifications will be offered along the way. We’ll end with an extended savasana and guided relaxation. There will be a strong focus on alignment and advanced options will be given for those with a deeper backbending practice. Peel back the layers of fear to expose your strength and resilience!
Free your spine & the rest will follow...
Does it ever feel like “same old, same old”? Another day waking up with aches and pains in your neck and shoulders starting the day stressed and you wondering if it’s ever going to change...
This workshop is designed to help you ditch those aches and pains and give you some take home tools to help you free up your upper body. You will learn to unlock your shoulders, relax and align your neck and find more freedom in your upper back and chest. You will practice exercises and postures that will help relieve tension and restrictions in the upper body due to poor posture, repetitive stress injuries or imbalanced work habits.
Tending to the mobility and strength of your muscles and joints invites greater balance into your practice. By incorporating longer holds, mindful pranayama, warming asana and some powerfully passive yin, you'll strengthen & lengthen your shoulders, chest, neck and back. A flexible body is stronger, more mobile, resilient, spacious & free.
