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.

NET is a precise and effective tool for locating and releasing patterns of unresolved stress in the body. Many of my patients report that NET sessions have been beneficial in resolving physical conditions and in helping to identify and release causes of emotional stress.During this introductory workshop, we will look at how the body is naturally designed to deal with stress, what happens when the system gets overwhelmed and ways in which patterns of unresolved stress can be located and released. In addition to the presentation, a demonstration of NET will be offered to attendees and a self-care protocol will be given for use at home.

He is a graduate of New York Chiropractic College and has trained with the Upledger Institute for Cranio-Sacral Therapy.

YOGA House in Kingston, NYWe’ve all heard of the widely known physical and mental benefits of a consistent yoga practice. We know that when we hear the word “yoga” we think of flexibility, stress relief and mindfulness. But for some, making that step to experience those well-known benefits is not as easy as walking out the door and getting to a class. Often people feel intimidated and unsure of joining a group class for their first experience. Many questions arise: What type of yoga should I try? What’s with all the breathing? If I’m not flexible, can I do yoga? Maybe you’ve already been to a class but felt too uncomfortable and unsure of yourself to return.

This 2-hour interactive workshop is designed to quell those hesitations and answer any and all questions that you might have about starting a yoga practice. We will cover the following topics:

  • A brief history of yoga
  • An introduction to pranayama (breath control) and meditation
  • An explanation of different styles
  • An introduction to common yoga terms
  • A look at some yoga postures and their anatomical alignment

The entire workshop is designed to encourage dialogue, questions and discussion for any and all topics. If you have a question, we are sure that many other people do, so ask away for us all, teachers and students, to learn about the hesitations that arise. We want to provide you with the foundation of basic yoga principles in order for you to feel comfortable when you enter a yoga class for the first time. Join The Yoga House co-founder and  instructor, Jacqui Nash, for this open forum for any yoga-skeptics.

We have all necessary equipment (props, mats, straps, even water), so bring just yourself. Because we will be doing some postures, please wear comfortable, loose clothing.

(Please note, it is NOT necessary to take this workshop to come to a Beginner’s Class, which we offer of Monday and Friday nights.)
