Forward Bends for All Body Types
We may hear that forward bends are calming to the nervous system and great for quieting the mind. But if the hamstrings are screaming and the lower back aching, how is that so calming? Also, how can be even begin to practice a forward bend if our anatomy is such that there are parts in the way of the torso moving over the thighs? This workshop explores how we can adjust the practice of forward bends so that we can maintain relaxed breath, quiet mind, and no discomfort.

The Shoulder Workshop
The key to healthy shoulders is the right combination of mobility and strength. The shoulder is one of the most mobile and complex joints in our body, capable of a large variety of movements. It is also an area susceptible to stress and connective tissue dehydration. This class will teach and review many openers for the shoulders to release tension and remove stress, as well as some important strengthening practices including some with the Yoga Wall™ Elastic Bands.

July 15: Thursday
2:30am – 5:00pm
Improving Your Hip Mobility
As we mature, we may see changes in our balance and the musculoskeletal system. Stiffness and weakness in the hips can lead to challenges in functional strength, stability and balance. We may not even recognize our imbalances in our hips at first as other muscles begin to compensate. Eventually, pain and fatigue begin to remind us that something isn’t quite right! This class will be a practice of yoga poses for flexibility and exercises to help improve stability around the hip joint structures.

July 16: Friday
10:30am – 1:00pm
Easing Into Skillful Backbends
Backbending is structurally impeded in the thoracic spine and yet usually easy in the lumber spine. Because of this, we tend to often take the path of least resistance and put most of the backbending action in the low back spine. This can make it challenging to take the backbend practices into some of the more challenging poses. Taking the time to open the tight areas of resistance and using The Great Yoga Wall™ offers the opportunity to create a spacious and move evenly spread backbend that feels less compressed, leaves the mind feeling refreshed, and the body invigorated.

2:30am – 5:00pm

Releasing the Tension of the Lateral Lines
The Lateral Line refers to the connective tissue that connects all the muscles and tissues in the sides of the body from the outer ankle to the ear. It functions to balance the posture front and back, and also bilaterally left and right. It also assists in lateral bending in the trunk, abduction in the hip, and eversion of the foot. Imbalances can create a chain reaction affect resulting in multiple physical challenges. When a body is not in it’s optimal alignment, some of the spinal structures are at risk for injury with lateral movements. Learn to balance the lateral lines using the practices of yoga asana!
