Breath, Space, Structure; Exploring Pranayama and Movement

with Anne Robinson

Saturday, November 14, 2:30-4:30pm

$20 pre-register/$25 day-of

Join Anne Robinson of the Hudson Valley’s MaMA to understand the true relationship of breath and movement in your vinyasa practice. This workshop will begin with feeling the diaphram move with the breath and progress into  experimenting with movement through space, with the awareness on the breath.  We’ll  watch as the shape of the body changes, how that affects the breath, and note how the breath affects the shape change of the body.  We will experiment with and discuss how being in touch with the breath can move the whole being  into a deeper and more expansive place.

Hatha, the physical practice of yoga, is a vehicle towards self-awareness. As Iyengar says, ”Health begins with firmness in the body, deepens to emotional stability, then leads to intellectual clarity, wisdom and finally the unveiling of the soul … . We work with the body to perfect the soul.“ As we deepen and connect with ourselves through the practice of Hatha Yoga, we let go of physical, mental and emotional habits that are unnecessary. Yoga starts with the physical and ultimately takes the practitioner to a much deeper level of experience.

T h e   W o r k s h o p :

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.
