  • Honor the Summer Solstice
    with Sandi Russom
    Available Packages:
    $45.00One-Day Workshop (2024-06-22)

    The summer solstice is the longest day of the year with the least amount of darkness and the most daylight. It is the peak of the growing season. The sun appears to stand still in the sky, almost as if to pause and reflect on all that its power has produced.

    To honor the summer solstice, this workshop will focus on celebrating the sun in its current state. We will begin by building some heat with sun salutations, followed by invigorating breathwork and mudra. We will then pause and reflect through relaxation and a guided meditation to observe within ourselves what has grown and changed during the season.

  • Connecting Lines of the Foot, Ankle, and Knee
    with John Mackey
    Available Packages:
    $40.00One-Day Workshop (2024-07-20)

    Let's have a playful time of movement while we learn about the lower extremity of the body: it's construction, how it moves, and how to move safely. Once we learn the proper mechanics, we can automatically feel the power of the pose solely from the grounding energy of the foundation.

    We will explore:
    the uniqueness of our foot and ankle structure
    how to modify the foot if necessary (50% of us need this)
    how to build ankle stability for balance
    how the knee joint moves
    how to release knee tightness and relieve knee stress
    why strengthening certain hip muscles can help knee alignment

    Let's discover the alignment of foot, ankle and knee for our personal structure, so that we experience freedom in standing asana. As we build poses for our particular structure, we can build a muscle memory so that we can “seat” the pose with our eyes closed. Thus we can allow the cues we hear during a yoga class to trigger us to remember our stability and strength.

    In the practice session, we will learn knee and foot balancing with ease ( nope, no handstands! ), a myofascial lines freedom practice, and asana for ankle and knee strength.

    This will be a feedback workshop, so bring questions or ask to explore special topics (leg length, flat feet, bunions, hammertoes, flex the foot, etc.).
