Looking at Bodies

Sunday, December 13, with Tama Soble and Monica Voss
10:00am-12:30pm and 2:00pm-4:30pm
$125/ full day, $65/half day

Spend a day observing, learning about and understanding how to look at the human body from the perspectives of natural movement, responsive alignment and yoga practice. We will discuss what is safe, possible and desirable considering the planes of the body, anatomical joint function and individual variations. Typical limitations and injuries will be addressed and suggestions, not corrections, made.

The focus of the afternoon session will be an introduction to hands-on assists from a true assisting, not correcting, point of view. Each participant will be asked to invite a friend or family member to join them to act as a student/partner, enabling the workshop participant to practise simple hands on-assists in the moment on screen. Preparatory and in class homework will be included. CEU’s awarded through Yoga Alliance.

Exploring the Psoas on Zoom

Friday, February 5, with Tama Soble
1:00pm-3:00pm, ET, $40, on Zoom

The psoas muscle is powerful and intelligent.  It lies deep in the torso connecting spine, pelvis and legs. Understanding how to release, stretch and strengthen the psoas can help us to integrate and stabilize the entire physical body, and free up the respiratory system.  We will explore postures and breathing practices to deepen our awareness and understanding of the role of the psoas in a balanced, resilient and steady body and mind.
