Take the Leap!
Date: Friday, July 13, 2012
Time: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
The great monkey god Hanuman once leapt across all of India in service of the highest. Hanumanasana, the full splits pose named for him, can seem daunting but the pose can be achieved at whatever level the practitioner is at: whether fully extended with the pelvis on the ground or at some point before that, it is the commitment and devotion to the skillful inhabiting of the pose that reaps its benefits. Come explore the poses and actions required to embody both Hanuman’s virtues and his pose it self. In this monkey-playful class, we will work through a series of poses including a sequence written by Stacey for the “Take the Leap!” article in the September 2011 edition of Yoga Journal to explore Hanumansana.
Recharge and Shine! Standing Poses and Backbends
Date: Saturday, July 14, 2012
Time: 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.
Backbends are the perfect tonic to help open and strengthen the back, chest, and shoulders. Anusara’s Universal Principles of Alignment provide the key to accessing deep backbends. Learn to build a solid foundation with standing poses and new ways to access your shoulders and spine, and then delight in the experience of deepening your backbend practice from wherever you are. You can expect to increase the range of motion in your hips, shoulders, and neck while energizing your entire system.
Release and Soar! Hip Openers and Arm Balances
Date: Sunday, July 15, 2012
Time: 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Come learn the secrets of unlocking your lower back and hips to find greater freedom, ease, and energy! Our largely seated lifestyles lead to blocked energy and tension in the lower back and pelvis causing great discomfort and health problems. In this class we will use hip-openers to release the tension that inhibits us while accessing the balance of inner and outer strength to cultivate the lightness to fly. Come take flight for the first time, or soar to new heights! In addition to feeling increased vitality and empowerment, you can expect more ease in your hips, greater freedom for your spine, and comfort for your knees.
