Fix Your Feet:

Yamuna Foot Fitness Basics

with Eli McAfee

Saturday, May 13

2:30-4:30pm

$50

The feet get very little love for all the punishment they take (pedicures and foot rubs don’t count), and eventually, the whole body will pay the price. Back, hip, shoulder, even neck pain can start with your feet as those joints try to compensate for poor foot function, improper alignment and dysfunctional walking patterns. 

The Yamuna Foot Fitness® program is a simple, easy to use system that educates you on proper foot function, and how to identify and correct common foot problems. During this two hour workshop you will learn routines to raise your arches, realign your ankles, and avoid future foot problems.

It’s never too late – start today.

12 Poses for Your Daily Home Practice

3 Week Series

with Dana Guyet

Wednesdays, 6:30-8pm

May 24, 31 & June 7

$60

This 3-class series will teach a sequence of 12 yoga poses that have shown to positively impact bone health. The focus will be on helping students develop confidence with this sequence so that they can make it a regular home practice.

The benefits of this practice are not just in the potential of direct improvement to bone density but also the indirect benefits of increased muscle strength, which provides support to the bones, and therefore reduces the potential for injury. Possible “side effects”: improved range of motion, strength, & coordination, reduced anxiety, and a greater sense of well-being.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

explore the 12 poses in depth,

practice more extensive sequences that support capacity to practice the 12 identified poses, and

develop a clear plan for how they can best approach these poses in a manner that is suited to their ability

The series will set participants up to keep a regular practice of the 12 poses, whether it be a brief practice of 12-15 minutes or a more extensive practice when time allows. Students will be provided with sequences that incorporate the poses to take with them for home practice. During the series students will have the opportunity to use props to determine how they may enhance their practice and they will be provided guidance and direction meant to further a sense of mastery and comfort with practicing the poses outside of the instructor led environment.

Yogasana Summer Intensive

with Witold Fitz-Simon and Kristen Davis

Monday, June 19 – Saturday, June 24

9-12pm – $65

2:30-4:30pm – $45

$550 for the entire intensive

Our 6-day intensive offers a unique opportunity to embrace your practice in a profound and challenging way. With our combination of Iyengar-style Yoga and the Alexander Technique, we bring a keen sensitivity to the interplay of mind and body. This allows us to quickly dive deep into the subtlety of alignment. With creativity and light heartedness, we look to uncover the universal truths of how we function as a whole. Through this lens, we’ll be addressing your individual needs and issues, and refining the asanas to facilitate fluidity and ease.

We will alternate teaching. The morning classes will be more vigorous, focusing on standing poses, variations in inversions, backbends and arm balances. The afternoons will have a slower pace with gentler, quieter poses, such as forward bends and hip-openers, along with restoratives and pranayama.

“Take the intensive, not because you’ll do a lot of challenging asana (you will!), nor because you’ll deeply relax (you’ll do that, too!), but because your body will lead you to places you never thought your mind could go. Physical organization begets mental organization in an endlessly deepening cycle. I have a much richer sense of my potential as a practitioner and as a human being.”
