Chair Yoga

Friday, October 25, with Shari Stein
1:00pm–3:00pm, $40

Chair Yoga is a viable and refreshing alternative to yoga on the mat. We will ground, breathe and lengthen our spines as we would in any yoga session, and creatively adapt the poses for a wide range of students, from residents of assisted living facilities, to those in business suits enjoying yoga during the lunch hour. This workshop is suitable for yoga students and teachers who wish to expand their repertoire to include Chair Yoga. Guided meditation and breathing practices are included.

Empowering the Aging Body

Saturday, October 26 – Sunday, October 27
with Monica Voss, Tama Soble, Shari Stein and Della Croteau

Saturday, 1:00pm-6:30pm, Sunday, 10:30am-5:00pm, $325

As the population ages, teachers must inform themselves about natural changes in the body as well as common conditions such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Changes in outlook also occur in older students as they contemplate their lives and goals. Through practice, discussion and analysis, we will explore these and other issues of aging and create intelligent and supportive options in order to instruct older students holistically with energy, knowledge and empathy.

Empowering the Aging Body is intended for certified and non-certified yoga and meditation teachers, teachers-in-training, health professionals, therapists, social workers and interested students of yoga. CEU’s awarded through Yoga Alliance.

Exploring Sound

Friday, December 13, with Monica Voss

Making sounds, whether deliberate or spontaneous, is a strategy the body/brain/mind uses to release stress and restore energy. In this workshop, we will practise a variety of structured and non-structured sound-making to rediscover the voice as a tool for relaxation, empowerment and self-expression.
This workshop is open to everyone.
