Weekend Workshops

Restorative Poses and the Power of Practice with Lynda Gill
Saturday, October 14, 1:30 - 3:30 p.m.

Discover the power of a restorative practice!

One of the greatest gifts from the late yoga master, B.K.S. Iyengar, is the knowledge of how to use props and sequence poses so that we can reap the benefits of yoga when we need it most. Whether you suffer from headaches, physical or mental fatigue, or just need a break from the demands of work and family responsibilities, practicing these poses will bring you to a state of deep relaxation.

It is during this state of deep relaxation that healing begins.

Join us for an afternoon practice designed to quiet the nervous system and relieve the stresses that cause "dis-ease". Including these poses in your home practice will revitalize your body/mind and promote a sense of well being.

In today's fast-paced world these poses provide the relaxation so desperately needed by an overworked body or an over-stimulated mind.

$40 ($35 if paid by Saturday, October 7) payable by cash or check to Lynda Gill

 

Backbends Workshop with Lynda Gill
Saturday, November 11, 1:30 - 4:00 p.m.

Experience the exhilaration of the classic backbends!

Learn how to prepare the body for safe and joyful practice of backbending poses. In addition to reviewing the proper actions of the arms and legs, we will also use supported poses to bring awareness to the shoulder blades and prepare the spine for the classic backbending poses (Urdhva Dhanurasana and Dwi Pada Viparity Dandasana).

Backbending actions expand the chest fully and improve the functioning of the heart and lungs, as well as the practice of pranayama! Backbends make the spine supple and are the best antidote to a rounded (kyphotic) upper back.

Backbends develop strength and flexibility in the arms, shoulders and upper back which prepares the body for the classic inverted poses, Sirsasana (Headstand) and Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand).

$45 ($40 if paid by November 4) payable by cash or check to Lynda Gill
