The Essential Workshop is a four-part series comprised of these topics:

Shoulders (Saturday 9:30am-12:30pm) — The shoulder girdle is a common area of struggle for both the new and the regular practitioner. The shoulder joints are inherently inclined toward mobility, creating the need to cultivate stability when we challenge the joints in weight-bearing poses like chaturanga dandasana. In a lecture, we’ll learn about the shoulder anatomy and a theoretical approach to working with these joints therapeutically before moving into a guided practice that enables you to immediately translate this knowledge into your body.

Hips (Saturday 2pm-5pm)— This workshop explores the need for equity between stability and mobility in the hip joint. In a yoga practice, hip stability occurs naturally but what each of us needs to maintain balance in this joint can vary greatly from person to person. Through a lecture and guided practice, you’ll look at the structure and function of the hip joint to learn how to individualize for your practice and group classes.

Spine (Sunday 9:30am - 12:30pm) — The central theme of this workshop is maintaining the integrity of the precious structures in the spine and all that it entails. Learning how to move efficiently with the support of the core, glutes, and legs is key not just in a movement practice but also in the challenges of our lives. Through a combination of theory and practice, you’ll understand how the parts of the spine work together with the core and legs, and learn how to move with solid mechanics that allow you to rewrite your autopilot motions.

Myofascial Release (Sunday 2pm-5pm) — Understand what myofascial release (MFR) is and how it supplements your yoga practice. We’ll move through a MFR practice that explores the areas we’ve found to be the most beneficial for the legs, hips, shoulders, and back. You will leave with self-care information that you can use right away. This practice is MFR only (no yoga) and is open to everyone, no yoga experience needed.
