The yin side of the force
Friday, September 23
Have you enjoyed a good helping of strong, fired-up yoga practices? You may need to recalibrate with this complete Yin Yoga practice. Known as “the dark side of the force,” Yin Yoga is a slower practice that helps you find stillness, but it doesn’t compromise on potency, depth, and vitality. You’ll float away with balanced life force, internal space, hydrated connective tissue, and overall equilibrium. Warning: Operating heavy machinery after this class is highly unadvisable.
The power of touch: master hands-on assists
Saturday September 24
Hands-on assists can be a potent tool for teachers to communicate alignments and refinements in their students’ asana practice. One of the quickest ways for students to understand and embody the mechanics, depth, and beauty of an asana is through touch, which will also enriches their experience of your teachings. We will dive into the more common asanas assists with partners. We will focus on how to observe form, breath, alignment, energetics of asana, and ultimately how to assist. As the assister, we will explore the imperative of preserving our bodies through leveraging bandhas, breath, and our connection to the earth while providing the practitioner with safe assists that support and deepen their experience and understanding of asana.
For teachers and serious students who want to deepen their knowledge of asana assists. Fundamental knowledge of asana alignment and anatomy is not required but very helpful. Bring a blanket, block, and straps (ideal, but not necessary).
