Upcoming Workshops and Events:
Yoga Series for a Healthy Back
The spine is the central feature of the human body. It supports
the head, gives stability to the pectoral and pelvic girdle, and
transmits body weight while standing and walking. In the yogic
tradition, the spine is the abode of the nadis, channels through
which the energies of the subtle body are said to flow.
Muscular imbalance, spinal curve distortion, and incorrect
posture cause back pain, body misalignment, and loss of
energy. If you wish to improve your understanding of back
issues, learn how traditional and modified yoga poses can
help to improve spinal alignment and mobility, and to
decrease back pain, this workshop is for you.
Safe Inversions for Back Care & Scoliosis
Feeling fearful of inversions due to your Scoliosis or back issues? Join DL for this workshop, which has a specific sequence to build up your courage to reach for the King and Queen of inversions, the Headstand and Shoulderstand! All the preparatory poses and inversions will be adjusted and propped with ropes, blocks, chairs, blankets and more, for the special needs of a back care student!
Establishing A Personal Practice with Gabriel
Starting a home practice is as sure sign that you are deepening your commitment to yoga. But there is so much to explore; it can be overwhelming. What poses should I practice? In what order? How long do I hold the poses? How do I know i I am doing them correctly? What should I do when my motivation is low? These and other questions will be addressed and answered with practical tips on how to guide yourself to the gift of a consistent yoga practice. Sequences for an AM and PM practice will be given and practiced, as well as how and when to use props.
