YOGA THERAPY WORKSHOPS : JANUARY 25, 2020 AM & PM

January 25th: 9am-12pm: Yoga Therapy РGet Strong with Deep Core Work and Classical Sun Salutations

You can expect a semi-private class environment, where you will have the opportunity to practice a traditional sequence of postures or asanas known as Sun Salutations. Regular practice of Surya Namaskara builds strength, flexibility and mental focus. I will guide you through a variety of core exercises prior to examining numerous variations and possible modifications to every posture relevant to the classical sequence of Surya Namaskara. Each student will be provided with feedback so as to set you up with the knowledge necessary to continue a practice of classical Sun Salutations on your own. These traditional postures increase strength, flexibility and focus significantly with time and practice. I will provide each classical asana modified to suit each individual student, including therapeutic posture variations for those recovering for injury, as well as more challenging variations as needed. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require more information.
Workshop Fee: $40, Studio Location 202 – 1600 Bay Street

January 25th: 3-6pm: Yoga Therapy: Get Focused with Restorative Asana, Meditation and Traditional Chanting

You can expect a semi-private class environment, with individual feedback and variations offered based on personal needs. In addition to restorative postures, you will also be taught traditional meditation and chanting. You will have the opportunity to practice a variety of postures designed to eradicate pain and calm the nervous system. I will provide several traditional methods for meditation and give you the opportunity to find the one that most suits you. Our practice will also highlight the benefits of a regular chanting practice. When I first started practicing Yoga, I had a significant aversion to chanting. Over time, I learned that the practice of chanting has an incredible benefit of reducing anxiety, while significantly increasing focus and memory capacity. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you want more information.
