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.

Come learn about Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and how they can make a huge difference in the quality of your life. Essential oils are the immune system of plants making them a completely natural and non-toxic way to positively impact your health and wellbeing. Essential Oils work with your body vs. against it and they are safe to use during pregnancy, on small children and with pets! If you’re already eating organic foods and using dried herbs then you NEED to hear this info and if you’re trying to be more holistically oriented then you don’t want to miss out. We will cover the history of essential oil usage, why brand matters, how to create a non-toxic home, why essential oils work, 10 oils and how to use them for common ailments that pop up (fever, headaches, migraines, stress, anxiety, depression, bug bites, and constipation to name a few), how to naturally boost your immune system and much more. This will be an experiential class where you get to smell, apply and taste (yes, you can ingest these oils) if you wish! Option to order oils will be available if you choose.

Inversion Playtime Workshop — Sat., May 2nd, 2:00-4:30pm with Leigha

Inversion Playtime:

Techniques for Lifting Your Heart Above Your Head

Saturday, May 2nd

2:00-4:30pm

$25 to preregister (by Thursday, April 30th) or $30 to drop in

YOGA House in Kingston, NYTackle an inversion that has been just out of reach in this fun and playful workshop designed to give you the tools, safety guidelines, alignment strategies, and confidence you need to master or refine poses like headstand, forearm stand, and handstand. Specific, hands-on instruction will be offered for those who are newer to inversion play, and funky follow-up variations will be offered for inversion vets.

This workshop is designed to meet you where you’re at: If you’re new to inverting and wish to practice a shoulder-stand or headstand for the first time, that’s what you will work on! If you are already an inversion junkie and wish to gain even more control in your handstands or presses, then that’s what YOU’LL work on!

The workshop begins with a brief discussion about the why and how of inverting. Then I’ll have you feel the subtleties of safe (and effective!) anatomical tweaks during a guided, warming yoga practice. I’ll pepper in chances to get upside down during our flow. To explore the inversions, we’ll do some partner work, wall work, and finally independent work in order to hone our new skills. Looking forward to seeing you heart-side up!
