For joy and Well Being-come hear how “fake” laughing becomes real laughing using fun and brain chemistry to induce feelings of merry mirth. Then we’ll practice laughter yoga together, playfully using eye contact, childish antics, stretching and breathing to bring up joyous energy. We end with a relaxing savasana.

Basic Yoga Anatomy Workshop

with Jacquelyn Nash

Saturday, Sept. 14, 12:00-2:00pm

Free for Members/$20 for Non-Members

Midtown Studio

Fine tune your ability to listen when your body is speaking.

An added benefit to a regular yoga practice is having a better sense of body awareness. Enhance your relationship with YOU by acquiring basic anatomy information and by learning how it applies to your yoga practice. Untangle some anatomy lingo and take a closer look at a few key components of the body, like: shoulders, spine, and hips, which are all key hubs for our yoga asana, or postural practice. Finally experience what we’ve learned through movement. Feel free to come with some questions.

Please email us to RSVP as a member.

 

Jacquelyn Nash is the co-owner of The Yoga House, where she co-teaches their teacher training program, including their intensive weekend on yoga anatomy and alignment. Her most recent advanced training placed an emphasis on yoga therapy approaches to healing anatomical misalignment and alleviating the associated discomfort.

Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash

Having met in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Leigha and Jacquelyn decided to plant their yoga roots in Kingston in 2011 when they opened The Yoga House in Uptown Kingston. While their styles of practice and teaching differ, their polarities bring a very balanced approach to sharing yoga with those training with them. Both have studied with various teachers, Leigha most recently with Shiva Rea and Jacquelyn with David Swenson, bringing combined knowledge from different approaches to the practice. While they joke about not reading anything but yoga books, they are continually filling their wells with new inspiration for their committed personal practices and the classes that they teach.

Testimonial: My back surgery years ago only reduced the frequency of my sciatic pain. At the recommendation of my physical therapist, I decided to give YOGA a chance. My Facebook friends suggested Ami and they were right. I had some serious doubts about this, but I was proven wrong. Ami‘s straightforward approach to daily stretching for only 15 minutes not only stopped my pain, but also gives me extra energy.
