Explore key practices to help not only relieve the symptoms, but to consider yogic techniques to unveil the root causes of headaches. 6 Months of Asana Practice.

May 29–Exploring Mulabandha presented by Adelfa Hill

In this yoga class, we will focus on the practice of mulabandha, also known as the root lock. Mulabandha is a subtle yet powerful technique that involves engaging the muscles of the pelvic floor to promote stability, balance, and energy flow within the body. We will delve into the interconnectedness of the pelvic floor with the myofascial structures of the hips, upper legs, knees, ankles, and feet. Emphasis will be placed on generating flexibility and tone in the external hip rotators, inner groins, quads, hamstrings, and feet to create a foundation for engaging the more subtle articulations of the pelvic floor. 6 Months of Asana Practice.

June 12 —iRest Yoga Nidra for the Heart—Cultivating Love

From the time we’re old enough to walk, we are trained to be results-oriented.  We measure our success by the results produced by our efforts. In our lifelong habit of focusing on the results we want, we fail to activate the one thing—love—that give wings to our desires.  Love is the catalyst by which all good things happen.  In this practice, we use the tools of Yoga Nidra to guide us back to love, the effortless way to achieve your heat’s desire.  All Levels.

June 19—Practices for a Healthy, Balanced Pelvis

The pelvis should be balanced with its circumference parallel to the ground.  When the pelvis is asymmetrical, the hip joints bear extra weight and the sacroiliac joints become compressed.  Many muscles begin to tighten and become locked to protect the body.  A whole host of physical challenges and chronic pain — from shoulder, hip and low back pain to joint injury and deterioration — can be found with basic imbalances in the alignments of the pelvic girdle. This class presents practices that may help you address pelvic imbalances. All Levels.

June 26—Effective Releases for the Tight Pectoralis Muscles

The pectoral muscles can become tight due to a variety of factors such as, a lack of physical activity, certain repetitive movements, or exercises that focus on the pecs but are not followed with sufficient stretching, When you sit for extended periods of time with the shoulders hunched forward, the chest area gets closed off and the pectoral muscles shorten and tighten. This can limit the range of motion in the shoulders, neck and upper back which can lead to discomfort and even pain.  This class will help us understand the pectoralis major and minor and how we can improve their mobility.  All Levels.
