Yoga Workshop Immersion - Weekend 2 - August 14th - 16th

Terry Brown will present this workshop, Yoga Workshop Immersion Weekend 2, Developing Skills in Your Practice in the Safety of Your Home, August 14th - 16th.

This workshop is for teachers and students that wish to challenge their practice and sequencing skills.  Some of the classes in this 2 part program will focus on safe and mindful practices that lead you to a goal pose.  Other practices will focus on refining our skills in poses you already practice and others on specific areas of the body.  These classes will be modified to allow you to practice safely at home with your computer.

Friday, August 14th ~ 6:00PM - 8:30PM - Strengthening Your Legs with Yoga

Aadil Palkhivala said in one of the classes Terry took with him that practicing the Yoga asanas with attention to good alignment can keep your legs healthy and strong for all your years.  The postures of the lower body are designed to utilize the legs in a variety of positions and help to create stability and balance.  Holding the poses, keeping the pose steady and your breath smooth, while maintaining proper alignment, will improve your ability to concentrate and focus.  This workshop will focus on how to use your Yoga to develop more powerful legs.

Saturday, August 15th ~ 9:00AM - 12:00PM - Exploring the Path to Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (The One-Legged King Pigeon Pose)

While this posture is considered an advanced yoga asana, its many components can be practiced with great ease and lead students to settle into a comfortable variation of the posture.  The class will address how to prepare the hips, how to direct the spine to move into a graceful backbend, and open the shoulders so the arms can reach up and over the head.  When practiced with refinements, a full understanding of the body and where all components should be in place, this pose offers a boost in energy and a release of tension in the shoulders, spine, and hips.

Saturday, August 15th ~ 1:30PM - 4:30PM - Creating Balance in the Nervous System

Stress begins in the mind and then is held in the nervous system.  When the nervous system is saturated, the stress flows into the muscles and organs of the body.  Since most stress is perceived stress, it is important to have techniques that you can use to control the mind, release the chaos in our heads and thereby keep the body healthy.  This class will sequence asana, pranayama, and meditation, along with Yoga philosophy, that can help us unwind the challenges that stress causes us in our liv

Sunday, August 16th ~ 9:00AM - 12:00PM - Deepening Your Practice of Twists

Twists help to stretch and maintain flexibility in the intervertebral discs and ligaments, open the hips and shoulders, massage the internal organs, improve digestion, stimulate the seven energy centers (chakras), and help reduce the effects of stress physically and emotionally.  This studies class will spend time taking the twist practice to the next level.  Afterward, you should feel more energy flowing throughout your body, the breath may feel deeper, and the organs of digestion and elimination will be regenerated.

Sunday, August 16th ~ 1:30PM - 4:00PM - Releasing the Tension in the Diaphragm

Day to day stress causes a natural response for the breathing muscle known as the diaphragm to tighten.  Repeated stress without relief can cause it to become chronically tight, which reduces oxygen to the blood and improves the health of our internal organs.  Using asana and pranayama, this practice sequence helps us understand how to release tension in the diaphragm, improve our overall health, and help us to feel more energized.

Full weekend - all 5 classes $160.00.  Individual classes are $35.00.  Registration is available under "Workshops".
