Workshops ::

Building ​Balance :: The Feet, Knees & Hips

Friday January 12th 6-8pm 2 1/2 hours

An all levels class. Learn how the feet and legs are designed to

transfer weight and hold us in balance. Examine the workings

of the knees and hips to understand how to carry the body

with stability and ease. We will explore “flat feet” and “locking

the knee,” leaving you with a better understanding for how

weight and balance are handled by the body, especially when

standing on one leg. Practice will include multiple sets of

standing postures, plus additional explanations, preparations

and exercises. You will leave this class with better stability,

feeling energized and in balance!

Yoga Therapeutics :: Back Pain & Stress Reduction

Saturday January 13th, 2 1/2 hours

All levels class, very safe for beginners or those who might feel anxiety about

trying yoga.

Therapeutic exercises are simple body movements to improve functional

health, strength and range of motion. This workshop will focus on bringing

stability and relief to the spine, especially the lower back. Also we will focus on

calming the body, breath and mind, reducing stress and creating a restful

state. Learn how to recognize and manage pain in your everyday life, and also

how to calm yourself at bedtime or in stressful situations. This workshop is

ideal for beginners, elders, non-yogis and yoga teachers. Bring your family

members or friends who have injuries or pain.

Bending the Spine :: Benefits of Forward & Backward Bending

Saturday January 13th 2-4:30pm, ​2 1/2 hours

Forward and backward bending postures are the gems of an asana. They

create movement in the spine leading to better posture, circulation, digestion

and greater energy. In this all levels class we will explore effective

engagement of the abdominal and back muscles (making your postures feel

easier!) and learn how the combination of the spinal movements balance the

nervous system. You will learn how to adjust your postures based on your

current mobility, and leave knowing how to get the most out of your practice.

Teachers Workshop :: Common Injuries and Modifications 

Saturday, January 13th, 5-7pm

is a workshop for instructors only. 🙂

Ghosh Lineage :: History & Historic Practice

Sunday, January 14th ​9:30am – 12pm

An all levels class. Explore the history of Ghosh yoga beginning from its

origins in Kolkata, India. Learn how this lineage evolved out of body

building and therapy to what is practiced today. You will become familiar

with the great students of Bishnu Ghosh and explore concepts such as

sequencing, heat, and competition. We will then go on to practice asana as

instructed by Bishnu Ghosh himself and his two greatest students: Buddha

Bose (1930s) & Dr. Gouri Shankar Mukerji (1940-60s). Their approach

to asana practice includes some different posture setups, multiple sets,

specific breathing techniques, and long holds.

Advancing Your Practice :: Intermediate & Advanced Asana

plus Pranayama

Sunday, January 14th, 1:30 – 4:30pm

Progress beyond beginning practices and concepts with this 3 hour

immersion. We will discuss what it means to be an intermediate and

advanced yogi, including practice philosophy and how to use the body and

mind with more detail. Asana practice work toward Arm Balancing &

Inversion, Full Backbending, and Leg Behind the Head. Practice will

conclude with Pranayama: breathing exercises that are the next step

beyond Asana in a yogi’s progress.
