Myofascial Release & Yoga
with Anne Taft
Have you ever blamed your tight hips, shoulders or back for inhibiting your range of motion in yoga and/or daily living? Perhaps your fascial tissue needs a little attention! Fascia is the webbing of connective tissue that lies underneath your skin but on top of your muscles. It can get tight and stubborn as a result of repetitive movement patterns, sports, or poor postural habits.
In this workshop, we will explore a variety of different myofascial release techniques using massage balls and rollers in order to break up this tissue and improve range of motion. We will follow up with a 45 minute hatha practice so you can experience a new level of depth in your asanas!
Class size is limited to 8 participants.
Cost: Pre-register and paid by May 2 $30/$40 thereafter

Yoga and Touch Therapy
with Claudine Beeson and Ritch Middleton
This class integrates the healing modalities of both yoga and bodywork techniques. While in a yoga posture, Claudine and Ritch will use assisted yoga stretches, adjustments and myofascial release to help deepen the experience within each yoga posture.
The fascial system is a web of supportive tissue that surrounds supports and integrates our muscles, organs and cells. When there is an imbalance in the system from everyday stress, injury or trauma this is felt in the body as pain, discomfort, inflexibility and stiffness. Often times it's the shortening or tightening of the connective tissue that restricts the body from completely releasing and finding space in a yoga pose. The combination of techniques will help to assist the body in opening and relaxing. Most of the postures will be held for several minutes so that each participant can receive touch therapy from the instructors.
Please pre-register, class is capped at 7 participants.
Class is full. Please call or email studio to be added to wait list.

Refine and Align Your Practice
with Claudine Beeson
Need a refresher? Has it been years since your last yoga class? Only done yoga DVDs but never attended an actual class? Needing a review on the fundamentals of yoga? Have you ever asked yourself during a class "Am I doing this right?"
If you answered YES to any of the above than this workshop is for you!
In this workshop style class we will deconstruct many of the more common yoga postures and from the ground up, re-align the body correctly in each pose. Discover techniques to more easily transition from one pose to another in a vinyasa practice and learn to incorporate the breath into the posture.
Come with yoga poses that you might be struggling with or that you want to learn more about. We'll end as all good things should, in a nice long savasana as you transition into your week.
Some experience helpful. All levels welcome.
