Additionally, you have 8 yoga classes that you can use any time within a 4- month period. These classes are anything listed on our regular weekly schedule that we recommend from this Sunday Workshop. We will provide detailed schedule recommendations for which classes are best for pregnancy and postpartum and why (there are quite a few good choices, so don’t worry, you will be able to fit at least one a week into your schedule).
We recommend repeating the workshop whenever you can throughout your Pregnancy and Postpartum period (Yes! You can bring your newborn, if you like!). Why? To stay in touch with your friends, for support, and important reminders. AND, of course, to enjoy a class to devoted entirely to Pregnancy and new Moms!
This aerial series is fun, dynamic and progressive, using the silk hammocks to explore yoga postures and build strength.
Students will learn how to safely use the silks while building confidence and strength for more fun and challenging options.
Each class will begin with flowing yoga postures, transition to strength building exercises, and end with restorative postures.
This series is ideal for beginners since the first class will cover the basics and then progress in subsequent classes.
This series also offers options for experienced students, especially those who want to focus on strength building.
- We'll begin with a mobility warm up utilizing FRC (functional range control) principles to assess the health and function of each joint. Once open and mobile, we will tap into our primal nature through Budokon Yoga, Mobility and Animal Locomotion. Come to learn, come to play.
- Time: 11:15a-1pm
When you understand the structure and nature of your own body, your asana practice can flourish in new ways. When you stop adhering to outdated alignment theories and start practicing from the perspective of your individual bones and joints, you’ll feel stronger, more open and more dynamic in your flow. Building your foundation is the first step. Learning how the joints of your own foot, leg, and hip are engineered to bear weight will allow you to find your optimal alignments, reducing the risk of injury and accessing energy, strength, and movement in new and powerful ways.

When we align with the sacred energy flow of the body we tap into our pranic vitality and return to the natural alignment that is our true nature. In our time together, we will learn and practice simple principles of alignment in fundamental Vinyasa poses based on essentials of hatha yoga biomechanics.
This training will give you options to refine your practice and teachings to become even more sustainable regardless of your lineage or dedicated asana style. These functional fundamentals can help to prevent yoga injury especially in areas most prone to injury in modern active yoga styles: the wrist, lumbar and cervical spine, and hips/knees! Sustainable Yogasana creates a good understanding, body awareness, and integration between yoga therapeutics and more active styles of yoga.
