Yoga and the Pursuit of Happiness: Finding Flow
Limited Capacity seats available

Ever had a practice that totally sucked you in, the kind where everything falls into place and time flies by? If so, you've experienced what psychologists call Flow, a meaningful and transformative state of profound mental and physical absorption. Ancient yogic texts such as the Yoga Sutra describe Flow states as a gateway to enlightenment, but modern research in psychology and neuroscience suggests that Flow isn't a mystical state; rather, it's an innate human experience available to all. This workshop explores what makes Flow tick—how to find it, why it's often elusive, and how to build a yoga practice that deepens your capacity to experience Flow on and off the mat.

Unpacking Chaturanga: Mechanics of a Misunderstood Asana
Limited Capacity seats available

Maybe the most ubiquitous and yet still mystifying of poses in the modern day yoga class, chaturanga has garnered quite the reputation. It's a heat builder, it's a strength based posture, it's dangerous, it's useless, it's crucial, it's what makes a vinyasa flow… It's the shoulder shredder, the widow maker… Chaturanga can be a phenomenal opportunity for full body engagement, energetic unfolding and a physical manifestation of resolve and attention. Lets reclaim this shape and learn to work with, not around it. In this workshop we will break down the elements of a successful and healthy asana. We will learn the biomechanics of the shape, technical drills and warm ups, modifications and how to truly embody this complicated asana. Some movement, some discussion, lots of opportunity for questions and knowledge bombs. Don't worry. We won't be in a low pushup for 90min.

Included: Stepping Salutations Learning to step forward and back lightly. Stepping well is also the foundation for learning "the jumps" forward and back. Learn multiple stepping salutations, and move them at various tempos to enhance your practice with agility and lightness. The Jumps Breath control, form, and technique facilitate a fluid salutation practice. Learn to be efficient in movement, economical in breath, and build up energy for the rest of the practice by refining each moment of the exercise. No more random efforts that lead towards random results. Align your gears and get moving with freedom and ease.
