Come enjoy a 2 hour session to tweek your asana, to stimulate new ways of easing into postures, pranayama (breathing exercises) and mindfulness meditation to center your mind. From Allison’s 30 years of experience in Ashtanga, Iyengar and mindfulness, you will learn which asana to do and not do during summer. Plus, you will learn the Big 6 postures which reboot the immune system and aid the lymphatic system. This sequence is customized for summer health and vitality. Come learn a few Yoga “tricks” to just ease into life.
In this monthly workshop series, Cintia will be selecting specific body areas to focus on and incorporate Alexander's postural exercises which are synergistic to the Yoga Tune-Up(R) practice. Each workshop will emphasize different yoga poses and exercises, thus no two workshops will be alike. The overall theme for the series will be "Live better in your body by learning how to self-massage fascia, relieve neck and shoulder tension, strengthen postural muscles and joints, and regain spine and hip flexibility".
In Iyengar Yoga, we pay close attention to anatomical details and the alignment of each posture—it’s a practice of precision. Poses are held for long periods and modified with props. This method is motivated by the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to strive for complete alignment, and the focus is on making yoga accessible to every age and every body.
In this workshop we will introduce the alignment principles of Iyengar Yoga to beginners, with a focus on proper alignment in standing poses, such as Virabhadrasana, Utthita Trikonasana, Utthita Prarsvakonasana, and Ardha Chandrasana. We’ll use lots of props to protect the body and focus on proper alignment, and we’ll close with Pranayama (breathing exercise) and a restful Savasana (deep relaxation).
