Core Labs
Saturday, November 4th (9:30am-12pm)
$55 Early/$65 after October 15th
In this mindful yet intensive Core Labs workshop learn highly translatable movement skills through exercises of stabilization, joint differentiation, proper breathing, control, and neuromuscular re-patterning. There is an art and a science involved- we'll be doing no crunches or hip-flexor pumping. Rather, we'll emphasize efficiency of movement while operating in full ranges of motion in a variety of exercises each with a specific intention within the core complex.

Many contemporary yogis the world over are supplementing their Yoga practice with core conditioning. Personally, my backbends have never felt so integrated, my hip-openers have never felt so juicy, my inversions have never felt as "locked in" as they have since I've incorporated these exercises taught to me by my Pilates teacher, Teri Steele.

This class produces a strong, long-lasting endorphin buzz and is a perfect compliment to a serious Yoga practice. 

Get Over Yourself! Inversion Workshop: Handstands, Forearmstands, Headsands, Armbalances   
Saturday, November 4th (2pm-4:30pm)
$55 Early/$65 after October 15th
Many yoga practitioners struggle with the elusive inversion practice. Most often, the chief obstacles are mental. We have a natural aversion to inversion. Practicing these full-body poses requires a willful suspension of instincts and a concentrated presence of mind, without which no progress is made. One must train, not only one’s body, but one’s very neurology. This mind-body training can only be executed by corralling one’s spirit and curtailing one’s instinctual drives.

There are many practical tools which, when mastered, will give you a solid footing in the sky. In this workshop, we will discuss and employ techniques and exercises to help you bridge the gap leading to a stable inversion practice. Specifically, we’ll be working with jumping, pressing and active-lowering to and from the shapes of Forward Split, Tuck, Straddle, Half-Straddle & Pike. We will learn exercises both at the wall and in the middle of the room, as well as the proper and most useful methods for assisting others.

[In the advanced workshops, we will also practice Bicycles, Helicopters, Scissors, Twists, Side-Bends, Seaweed Legs, Elbow Taps, Figa, Scorpions, Hollowbacks, OAHS.]

Through clarity of intention and mental focus, we will pierce through the veil of perception, and see through the false boundaries we’ve each set up for ourselves. Get Over Yourself! Inversion Lab.

I came to Yoga no stranger to the joys of physicality. But my body was a wreck from sports that I played growing up. I was tremendously inflexible with ailments in my neck and back. For me, at the time, the simplest postures were- not only deeply therapeutic- but poignant vehicles for psychic transformation. It was this effect on my conscious mind that hooked me into the practice. I spent years in home practice before ever coming to class, thinking that my experience was too personal to share in a group setting. But, when I took my first Vinyasa class, in a room full of people, all practicing with one intention, all stoking the same fire, I fell in love with Vinyasa; and pursued it through various avenues over the years, searching out the through-lines and common threads from one school to the next, & embracing the lifestyle of the Contemporary Yoga Movement. I teach today from that space between, in an attempt to convey the love story between form and flow, dancer and witness, devotion and integrity, Sun and Moon. I look forward to our practice together!
