Gravity as Therapy: Why Savasana is the Most Important Pose
Friday, January 25, 2019 from 1:00pm – 4:00pm
Much of yoga as in life involves learning to let go. In a yoga practice, the “corpse” pose, often the very last position and its corollary, yoga nidra or the yogic sleep require a profound letting go. This process involves not only physical relaxation but a kind of psychic relinquishing. In this class come prepared to drop into states of profound inner relaxation in order to create more ease and lightness in your body and mind.

Yin and Yang Yoga Practice
Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 1:00pm – 4:00pm
An optimal yoga practice helps cultivate both yin (restoration) and yang (dynamic energy) in the body. In this class, you will cultivate the qualities of yin and yang in each pose. We review the fundamental forces of yin and yang that are essential to Taoist practice and discover how they can be embodied in yoga. In the practice session, you will learn how to cultivate a hybrid practice, cultivating both yin and yang energies within each pose. Come prepared to restore your body while strengthening and energizing your entire being.

The region just below the navel is the center of gravity in the body. Called thehara in Japan, the dantian in China and related to the second chakra in yoga, the lower belly is the source of breath and the origin of the deep life force. In this class we initiate every movement and every pose from the lower belly. Through active and passive positions, we stretch, expand and strengthen the tissues of the lower abdomen.
