Yoga Off The Wall

Create a new foundation. Using a wall can be both a playful ally and a powerful tool for hatha yoga. This workshop is dedicated to create a more supportive base for your practice. Alignment principles will be discussed and applied while you are supported by the outer walls of the studio. In some postures, such as balancing, just a delicate use of the wall will be encouraged for play after alignment principles are engaged, whereas, the wall will also be used to work a little deeper into some of the stretching and inversion preparation postures. Using the wall accesses a second “connection” for the body in the poses. This opens up opportunity to explore new areas of possibility in the physical expressions. This special two hour workshop will be offered in a heated room with a Power Vinyasa format to heat the inner body. 

When: Saturday, November 28th, 3-5pm

Fee: $30 members receive an additional 10% off
