Yoga Weekend Workshop with Theresa Murphy - February 27th - March 1st

Theresa Murphy returns to TYI to offer a weekend workshop, February 2th - March 1st.

Friday, February 27th - 6:00PM - 8:30PM - Sensing Spirals.

The spiral pattern is inherent in all forms of life:  ocean waves, leaf patterns, cyclones, the ossification of our bones, and our DNA, to name a few.  Come investigate the coil that is the source of all movement!  In this class, we will learn the development spirals, how they effect our daily movement, and how to apply them in asana practice.  In addition to revolving poses that activate spiralic movement within the spine we will map the spirals of the limbs, tapping the profound ways that these fundamental patterns brings energy, creativity, and balance to the body.  This class will be appropriately mellow for evening practice.

Saturday, February 28th, 9:00AM - 12:00PM - BioGeometry. 

A skillful yoga-asana practice can reorganize and profoundly shape our physical form.  Beyond the physical form, dedicated practice can calibrate the nervous system cultivating balance and symmetry for us to handle the circumstances of living, aim and stretch thoughts to actualize goals, reorient and adjust posture to develop poise and perspective, and release stored emotions and dis-ease in the organs.  This class will offer rigorous practice designed to give us the tools, techniques, and blueprints necessary to develop a potent and substantial sadhana that transcends yoga trends and brands, and teaches us how to participate in our own well being.  This class is available to persons with at least a year of practice.

Saturday, February 28th, 2:30PM - 5:00PM - Shoulder Love. 

This class is for anyone with arms, who plans to use them until they die!  Offering a therapeutic and loving approach to the full range of shoulder movements we will unwind, strengthen, motivate and hydrate the entire shoulder girdle.  We will utilize smaller movements as we focus on the delicate rotator cuff, as well as bigger weight bearing actions to study the integration of the arms into the shoulders into the spine.

Sunday, March 1st - The Head as a Limb. 

The head and neck are often the source of great strain and pain, in asana and in life!  Neck strain in headstands, shoulder stands, and back bends is totally avoidable.  In this class we will look closely at the anatomy and kinesiology of the head and neck, study ways to organize the bones and muscles, and learn to use them as skillfully and efficiently as any of our other five limbs.

Theresa Murphy, E-RYT-500 deepest intention is teaching yoga is to be a catalyst for discovering the wisdom and wonder of an embodied life.  She is the primary teacher for Tias Little and the Prajna School, as well as an Insight Yoga Teacher with Sarah Powers and mentor in the Insight Yoga Institute.  Theresa wholeheartedly devotes herself to practice.  With over 25 years of study and practice she has made her life's work a balance of teaching the Yoga Dharma, caring for her ailing mother, and ongoing studies with additional influences Amy Matthews, Patricia Walden, Jennifer Welwood, Joseph Goldstein, Scott Blossom and Erich Schiffman.  Her style of cross-pollinating traditions, re-mixed with her own sensitivities and insights makes for experiences of embodiment, heart-mind expansion and mental clarity.  Please visit her website
