Yoga Therapeutic Workshop with Terry Brown - Saturday, December 13th

Terry Brown will lead this Yoga Therapeutic Workshop, "Yoga for Forward Head, Rounded Shoulders and Slouched Back", from 9:00AM - 12:00PM on Saturday, December 13th.  Open your heart and release tension in your upper back.

Rounded shoulders and collapsed chest compress and hide the heart, creating a posture of depression.  The mid-back rounds out of the body and creates a posture known as kyphosis, or "hunch back".  Reversing the spinal collapse and opening the chest and shoulders can improve how we feel physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Once our hearts are open, how can we protect ourselves to prevent stress from taking us back into our old habits?

This workshop is for all levels and teachers are welcome to learn valuable tools for their profession.

Workshop cost: $35.00 or $30.00 if registered by December 6th.  West Market Street Studio.

Yoga Weekend Workshop with Theresa Murphy - February 27th - March 1st

Theresa Murphy returns to TYI to offer a weekend workshop, February 2th - March 1st.

Friday, February 27th - 6:00PM - 8:30PM - Sensing Spirals.

The spiral pattern is inherent in all forms of life:  ocean waves, leaf patterns, cyclones, the ossification of our bones, and our DNA, to name a few.  Come investigate the coil that is the source of all movement!  In this class, we will learn the development spirals, how they effect our daily movement, and how to apply them in asana practice.  In addition to revolving poses that activate spiralic movement within the spine we will map the spirals of the limbs, tapping the profound ways that these fundamental patterns brings energy, creativity, and balance to the body.  This class will be appropriately mellow for evening practice.

Saturday, February 28th, 9:00AM - 12:00PM - BioGeometry. 

A skillful yoga-asana practice can reorganize and profoundly shape our physical form.  Beyond the physical form, dedicated practice can calibrate the nervous system cultivating balance and symmetry for us to handle the circumstances of living, aim and stretch thoughts to actualize goals, reorient and adjust posture to develop poise and perspective, and release stored emotions and dis-ease in the organs.  This class will offer rigorous practice designed to give us the tools, techniques, and blueprints necessary to develop a potent and substantial sadhana that transcends yoga trends and brands, and teaches us how to participate in our own well being.  This class is available to persons with at least a year of practice.

Saturday, February 28th, 2:30PM - 5:00PM - Shoulder Love. 

This class is for anyone with arms, who plans to use them until they die!  Offering a therapeutic and loving approach to the full range of shoulder movements we will unwind, strengthen, motivate and hydrate the entire shoulder girdle.  We will utilize smaller movements as we focus on the delicate rotator cuff, as well as bigger weight bearing actions to study the integration of the arms into the shoulders into the spine.

Sunday, March 1st - The Head as a Limb. 

The head and neck are often the source of great strain and pain, in asana and in life!  Neck strain in headstands, shoulder stands, and back bends is totally avoidable.  In this class we will look closely at the anatomy and kinesiology of the head and neck, study ways to organize the bones and muscles, and learn to use them as skillfully and efficiently as any of our other five limbs.
