Schedule

 

ARMS AND LEGS-ORGANS OF ACTION

 

FRIDAY, FEB 2

1:30 - 3:30PM

INSTR: MARLENE MCGRATH

Fee: $30.00

Our arms and legs propel our habitual and repetitive movements. Over time, strain and fatigue show up in the joints of hands, wrists, feet and knees. Correct action of arms and legs in asana gives structure soundness as well as joint relief. The sequence will reveal how the organs of action inform the organs of perception. No new beginners please.

 

 

 

 

SEQUENCE FOR HEADACHES

 

FRIDAY, FEB 2

6:00-8:00PM

INSTR: KAREN UFER

Fee: $30.00

Headaches can be caused by both muscular and nervous system tension. Muscular driven headaches can often be addressed with postural changes In asana practice but we can not eliminate tension from our lives. We can however learn a different response through poses that calm the nervous system and regulate over production of adrenaline. Please wear layered clothing. No new beginners please.

 

 

 

 

EIGHT LIMBS OF YOGA IN ACTION

 

SATURDAY, FEB 3

1:30-3:30PM

INSTR: ALICIA ROWE

Fee: $30.00

Drawing on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the rich imagery of the Bhagavad Gita, this workshop weaves yoga philosophy into a sequence of poses to cultivate a deeper exploration of yoga as self study. This workshop is for students with at least a year of recent Iyengar study.

 

 

 

 

HEALTHY BACKS

 

SUNDAY, FEB 4

9:30-11:30AM

INSTR: DAVID UFER

Fee: $30.00

As an instrument of our will, our backs suffer from over use, improper bearing of weight, and stiffness resulting in painful inflammation. This workshop will have short sequences for upper back and shoulders, mid back and shoulder blades and lower back and sacrum. All levels welcome, no new beginners please.

 

 

 

 

HARNESS POSE IN ASANA PRACTICE

INSTR: KAREN UFER

Fee: $30.00

There are many ways to use a yoga belt as a harness in a wide variety of yoga poses. Forward head, rounded upper back and collapsed chest are not only weak structural habits but can also result in poor circulation, upper respiratory, and heart issues. The sequence will address both structure and the underlying health. Students must be familiar with sarvangasana. No new beginners.
