SATURDAY AFTERNOON 12:30-2:30pm : Unlocking the Psoas Workshop ($35 by 4/14, $45 after)

The psoas muscle is the deepest muscle in our bodies. It’s sometimes referred to as the muscle of our soul. This core-stabilizing muscle that runs from our trunk to the hipbone affects mobility, structural balance, joint function, flexibility, and much more. In addition to its function to help keep the body upright and moving, it affects two of our most vital systems: digestion and breath. In this workshop, you will learn where your psoas is and how to unlock this deep muscle creating numerous benefits throughout your body. There will be a brief anatomy discussion learning the psychological benefits of releasing this muscle before a deep two- hour vinyasa flow practice opening the abdomen region and releasing the lower back and hips leading to splits and asymmetrical back bends. Open to all levels.

and 3-5pm : The Art of Sequencing, Injury Management, and Hands on Adjustments ($25 by 4/14, $35 after) // stay all day for $50 by 4/14, $70 after)

Great for teachers and dedicated practitioners who would like to learn more about how the bodies work and how to sequences postures together in an anatomical way to create deep healing in the body, mind, and spirit.  Hands on Adjustments will be included to teach safe alignment in the poses especially when dealing with injury.

  • Sunday, April 30th 12-5:30pm at DY Rittenhouse

SUNDAY AFTERNOON 12:30-3:30pm : Overcoming Fear in Back Bends & Inversions ($35 by 4/14, $45 after)

This workshop will include a brief vinyasa flow practice and inversions at the wall to teach the wheels needed for safe backbends.  I have found through many years of teaching, backbends and inversions can create a sense of fear and anxiety, especially when going upside down and dropping back. Both postures can be very theraputic and have many benefits when taught slowly educating what are known as the “wheels”  creating deep core stability in the lower back helping to access the upper back and unlock the heart space.  Find the joy in these liberating postures and practice safe at the same time!  A year of practice is encouraged and a desire to go deeper in your practice.

and 3:30-5:30pm : Advanced Asana and Philosophy Discussion, with Pranayama and Restorative Practices, and a talk on finding your authenticity and purpose… ($25 by 4/14, $35 after) // stay all day for $50 by 4/14, $70 after)
