Iyengar Yoga: Moving from the Bones presented by Janet Lilly
Janet Lilly, will present "Iyengar Yoga: Moving from the Bones" on Saturday, June 15th, 9:00AM - 11:30AM.
The practice of Yoga asanas is unique because we engage our entire self, body, mind and spirit in the practice of a pose. In this workshop, we will focus on how we can move into and maintain standing postures and inversions on skeletal levels. Yes, our muscles move the bones, but as yoga practitioners we will experience our body in ways that go beyond just our bodies to incorporate awareness and actions of the skeletal body.
Janet Lilly, Professor and Head of Dance at UNC-G, has been studying Iyengar Yoga since 1992 and has been teaching the method since 1995. She holds a Junior 1 Iyengar Teaching Certification and has studied at the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India with the Iyengar family six times. Janet continues her studies in the U.S. with Senior Iyengar teachers around the country and with Terry Brown at TYI. She is the current President of the Iyengar National United States Association (IYNAUS).
Workshop fee $30.00, or $25.00 if paid by June 8th.

Yoga Classes for Teenagers
Yoga Classes for Teenagers will be held on Thursday nights from 5:30PM - 6:45PM, from May 16th - June 20th and will be taught by Savannah Roberts. This class is open to teenagers that seek to enhance their physical being as well as their spiritual core. We will be focusing on opening the body to strengthen, free tensions or injuries, and gain flexibility. In addition, we will learn techniques to center the mind and relax the body. These methods will aid students in their academic and personal lives. Since the average teenage body is often more open that that of they typical adults, we will focus more on developing awareness of the body and forming a strong and healthy anatomy.
Savannah began her yoga journey three years ago as a freshman and quickly developed a passion for this ancient art and science. She graduated TYI's 200 hour teacher training program in February, 2013. Her first teaching experience has been with high school students, including Grimsley's varsity football team.
