Yin Yoga Workshop, Saturday, Mar. 11th 2:30-5pm

Exploring the Practice and Principles of Yin Yoga

with Bobbie Marchand

Saturday, Mar. 11th, 3:30-5:30pm

unnamedA quietly passive, though deeply challenging practice, yin yoga is designed to elongate the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendon and fascia) resulting in a greater sense of space within. For a therapeutic effect, poses are sustained for along period of time; practitioners are encouraged into the depth of the pose by the guidance and patient listening to their own breath.

 

This workshop will offer information about a full yin yoga practice; the principles behind Yin and Yang; the desired effect of a yin practice on our begin as a whole; connective tissue and it’s relevance to the practice of yin; how and when to incorporate yin principles into a traditional practice; and pranayama for a yin practice.

 

bobbie marchandBobbie Marchand, in pursuing her love of dance, moved from her native Toronto to NY in 2005. Though the transition of dancer to yoga teacher is a common one, it was an illness that tuned her in to the power of a daily, dedicated practice. Bobbie’s Vinyasa classes are creative, challenging and fun. Drawing on her dance background, the sequencing is expressive and fluid while encouraging alignment (and a healthy use of props!). Her yin/stretch/restorative classes are an invitation to pause, yield to the sense of support, turn inward and take the practice to a quiet, nourishing place away from the external stress of our busy lives. Endless gratitude to teachers Diana Lockett, Amanda Harding and Raghunath for their encouragement, support and loving guidance on this incredible journey.

Core Anatomy & Movement Workshop–Saturday, May 23rd, 2:30-4:30pm

Core Anatomy & Movement

An Experiential Workshop with Michael Stein

Saturday, May 23rd, 2:30-4:30pm

 

This intensive workshop will focus on the anatomy of the 3 primary cores: the torso, hip & shoulder.  You will learn how to use yoga asanas and short sequences to isolate these muscles and create more length and strength during your yoga practice. We will break up the class with sun salutes, asana sequences as well as anatomy of the core muscles for better understanding. This workshop is perfect for any yogi, from the newcomer to the experienced practitioner, who is interested in learning more about the core anatomy and its relation to yoga asana movement.
