INVERSIONS W/ KAY

11/30/19 

2:30 - 4:30 

$25

Inversions can seem a bit mysterious or confusing because we don’t practice them

very consistently. But these intriguing poses challenge our bodies and minds in all

kinds of important ways. Physically, inversions reverse the effect of gravity on the

body and challenge us to figure out new ways to keep ourselves upright. Mentally,

we have to face a little fear as we move into a new line of sight- a new perspective, a

new understanding. Maybe most importantly, they’re FUN to practice!

In this workshop, Kay will break down the essential actions to find success in 3 of

the most common inversions: handstand, headstand, and shoulder stand. This is a

great opportunity for those new to inversions to have some solid time to practice.

For those more experience, Kay will offer progressions to keep your inversions

practice fresh and exciting. All levels welcome!

Biomechanics of Yoga Asana w/ Kay

12/8/19 

2:30 - 4:30

CEUs available

$35

In this afternoon workshop, Kay will review some basic biomechanics of the major

joints in the body in order to create smooth, safe action in yoga asana

 

Because this is a brief workshop, we’ll cover the major joints and details of 1-2 lesser-known

joints and how they impact our practice.

Instead of this being a ‘therapeutics’ class, I like to refer to this as a ‘Safe Asana’

class.

 

We’re not here to address injuries in yoga, but injury prevention instead.

When we move smoothly into and out of yoga poses, we can nurture our bodies in a

way that builds us up instead of wearing us out.

 

This workshop is an excellent

resource for teachers to tune up their anatomy based teaching, or for yoga students

looking for the underlying ‘why’ in certain yoga shapes.

Backbends w/ Vanessa

Intermediate +

12/14/19

2:30 - 4:30

$35

Are you weary of backbends? Is your backbody an enigma?

Can the low back ever experience a safe, intentional bend? Does being open make you feel vulnerable or anxious?

We will explore these questions and so much more in this 120 minute workshop. Together we will focus on refining our skills of interoception and the use of our anatomical tools.

 

With a combination of strength building exercises, mindful movement, and purpose driven alignment we will explore our

physical, spiritual, and emotional boudaries with back bending.
