Saturday, February 22:  8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Delve deeper into the postures you practice all the time. Nothing fancy, postures you already know. Triangle, warrior, and sun salutation are just some of the asanas we will take to a new level of understanding. We will explore alignment, anatomy and variations that will allow you to deepen your practice in any class as well as in your personal practice. There will be time for questions and discussion. The workshop is appropriate for both students and teachers as we develop improved internal awareness and increase our observation skills.

Saturday, February 22:  2-6 p.m.
Energize your Spine!! Experience many aspects of the back-bend: supine, prone, balancing, active and passive. We will explore the muscular and energetic anatomy involved in bending backward as we move towards a full back-bend with an open heart and strong body.

Sunday, February 23:  8:30 a.m.-12:30
Explore the complex anatomy of the hips and pelvis through a combination of yin and yang style asanas.  This workshop will allow you time to let go, release deeper, discover more fully.


Sunday, February 23:  2-6 p.m.
Explore balancing on our hands and turning upside-down. Bring a sense of humor and an attitude of non-judgment as we experiment with a variety of balances. We will also be focusing on the preparations for these asanas through strengthening and alignment to get you started on these invigorating practices.
