Root understanding:
Pelvic Floor vitality and support

with Richard Gartner

October 15
$40, both workshops $70

This workshop is designed to decompress the organs in the lower abdomen, acknowledge and release tension around the hips, and improve the health of the pelvic floor. Students learn discerning actions in the legs, allowing the pelvic floor to “breathe”. This workshop strengthens the core fascial line, which is the body’s central support and balancing line. We will also examine the role of mula bandha (root lock) and its wise use to provide blood and lymph flow to the uro-genital region. This flow and detoxing is a boon to those who are at risk for prostate, uterine and bladder dysfunctions, and promotes a vibrancy in these crucial organs.

All levels welcome! Yoga Alliance teachers can receive 2.5 CE credit hours.

Reviving the Lower back and hips

with richard gartner

October 15 | 12:30-3pm
$40, both workshops $70

The connective tissues in our lower back and hips play a critical role in our posture. If they are balanced, they absorb the shocks of our daily lives. Unbalanced, they can cause pain and postural holding patterns that extend through the neck and shoulders. Students will release the lumbar spine, sacrum and hips through a combination of long holds and fascial release movements. The practice also uses gravity as a tool to decompact the bones and discs, reversing its typical compressive role. We will discover ways to apply these techniques day-to-day to ease discomfort and maintain a consistent vibrancy in the lower back and hips.

This workshop is for all levels and no previous yoga experience is required.
Yoga Alliance teachers can receive 2.5 CE credit hours.

Conscious Cleansing for the New Year

with Laurel Attanasio

January 13 |  12-2pm|  $35 online, $40 at door

Every day we are exposed to extreme amounts of toxins from air pollution, household chemicals, over-the- counter and prescription drugs, processed foods, alcohol and caffeine. In addition, our bodies are negatively impacted by the stresses of everyday life. The body has mechanisms for eliminating toxins, such as breathing, sweating, urinating and bowel movements, but sometimes it needs a little bit of help.

The workshop will include an hour and a half vinyasa practice that will combine breath and movement while flowing through a sequence of twisting, standing, forward bending, back bending and inverted poses stimulating detoxification through the circulatory, digestive and lymphatic systems. The practice will be followed by an informational session focusing on simple everyday ways to cleanse through diet, exercise and personal hygiene.
Bonus: You will receive Laurel’s 30 + page e-booklet, which includes an acid/alkaline chart, explanation of the detox system, juice, smoothie, soup & salad recipes and much more.
