26+2: Integrating the Breath, Abs and Glutes
Practice the well-known sequence of 26 postures with a new focus. Learn how to breathe in each position to support the body instead of working against it. Learn the complimentary functions of the abs and glutes (butt muscles) to control the pelvis and spine, bringing new stability and ease, especially in the standing and balancing postures. Practice will include 2 sets of each posture, plus additional explanations, preparations and exercises.
Saturday Morning - 10:30am - 1:00 pm
Yoga Therapeutics: Back Pain & Stress Reduction
Therapeutic exercises are simple body movements to improve functional health, strength and range of motion. This workshop will focus on bringing stability and relief to the spine, especially the lower back. Also we will focus on calming the body, breath and mind, reducing stress and creating a restful state. Learn how to recognize and manage pain in your everyday life, and also how to calm yourself at bedtime or in stressful situations. This workshop is ideal for beginners, elders, non-yogis and yoga teachers. Bring your family members or friends who have injuries or pain.
Saturday Afternoon - 1:30 - 4:30pm
Advancing Your Practice: Intermediate & Advanced Asana plus Pranayama
Progress beyond beginning practices and concepts with this 3 hour immersion. We will discuss what it means to be an intermediate and advanced yogi, including practice philosophy and how to use the body and mind with more detail. Asana practice will entail 60 postures that work toward Arm Balancing & Inversion, Full Backbending, and Leg Behind the Head. Practice will conclude with Pranayama: breathing exercises that are the next step beyond Asana in a yogi's progress.
Sunday Morning - 10:30am - 1:00 pm
Buddha Bose Workshop with the History of Ghosh Yoga
Explore the history of Ghosh yoga beginning from its origins in Kolkata, India. Learn how this lineage evolved out of body building, showmanship and therapeutics to what is practiced today. You will become familiar with the great students of Bishnu Ghosh and explore concepts such as sequencing, the heat, and competition. We will then go on to practice asana as instructed by Buddha Bose, author of 84 Yoga Asanas and a premier student of Bishnu Ghosh in the 1930s. Bose's approach to asana practice includes some different posture setups, multiple sets, specific breathing techniques, and long holds.
