Yoga for Cardiovascular Health with Richard - May 14th - June 18th

Current research and study demonstrates that yoga practice can be a beneficial preventative method of maintaining heart health.  Yoga postures may increase blood flow to the heart, and improve the muscular-skeletal tone, which can assist in the return of blood to the heart.  In this six week series, emphasis will be placed on anatomy, opening up the body, light cardio practices and controlling the breath.  This practice can lead to more energy, less anxiety and an overall sense of well being.  All levels welcome.

Yoga Basics: From the Foundation Up is a class offered on Wednesday, 5:45PM - 7:00PM. This will be an 8 week class taught by Adelfa Hill that restarts every 8 weeks.

Here is what the new student to yoga will learn: All the basic foundation yoga poses for beginner students. How the pose should be aligned well with the body for the maximal benefit. How to adapt a yoga pose to meet the need of your individual body. How to practice the poses safely. How to use all the yoga props. How to breathe properly in the poses.

A Journey Within The Psoas & Diaphragm, June 29th with Sheila Wenzel

Sheila invites you to join her for her workshop, A Journey Within the Psoas & Diaphragm, which will be held on Saturday, June 29th, 1:00PM - 4:00PM

The top most fibers of the Psoas mingle with the respiratory Diaphragm in a relationship called interdigitation, an interlacing of fuzzy myofascial connective tissue (like fingers interlacing).  Connective tissue shares in a body-wide system that extends into each and every cell affecting our physical, mental, and emotional vitality.  Over time we develop myofascial holdings in this tissue through emotional and/or physical trauma, repetitive injuries and postural imbalances.

This practice will include meditation, pranayama, asana and somatic movements as taught in SATYA, (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement).  The somatic practice will allow for deep relaxation within the body's tissues and nervous system.  Most of these movements initiate from the fibers of the respiratory diaphragm and adjoining fibers of the iliopsoas.

Perquisites:  Six months of yoga experience, not appropriate for acute injuries, and must be able to get up and down from the floor.

Limited Registration under "Workshops".  Workshop cost $40.00, or $35.00 if registered by June 15th.  West Market Street Studio.
