FEET!

FEET!

As the integrity of any structure is contingent on its foundation, so it is with the function of our feet in relation to the rest of our bodies. Yet most of our society spends considerable time in footwear, and our minimal time barefoot results in disconnection from our crucial foundation. Our feet are one of the most nerve-dense parts of our bodies, and its 33 joints and 26 bones suggest that we have a great capacity for mobility, which is often unexplored, and for which a toll is taken on the rest of the body. Get grounded and explore the function of your foundation with this exciting and fascinating workshop all about the function of your feet, and enjoy the direct benefits up the chain.

PROP-el Your Practice

Props are a real gift to the yoga practice, often used for support and proprioceptive feedback, and rightly so. They can also, however, encourage a unique increase of challenge when introduced in certain approaches to asana, which is what this workshop will explore. While many standard props will be utilized, our focus will primarily be using blankets to discover fun and creative ways to move, stabilize, and strengthen the whole body.

Yoga Playground

Cabin fever got you down? Time to hit the yoga playground! As children, so much of our initial learnings occurred through the act of playing. Plato (or was it play-to?!) himself is thought to have said, "You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation." Yoga asana can sometimes get quite serious, but the act of play can certainly enrich our knowledge of self (svadhyaya), so it seems imperative to add a healthy dose of play to our work on the mat. Are your ready to get serious about playfulness? Then invite your inner child along for this fun and dynamic practice where we'll move within and beyond the mat! This workshop will involve creative individual, partner, and group work, so come ready to learn, discover, and play well with others in this non-competitive and fun practice!
