Vertical Extension and Horizontal Expansion
Friday, April 20 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.

BKS Iyengar has described extension and expansion as two crucial aspects of asana practice. These concepts correspond to how we move from the head and the heart, and our relationship with ourselves and the world. We will explore these ideas through standing, reclining and inverted poses that expand the body out into space.


Creating Space Within Compact Forms
Saturday, April 21, 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

How can we experience spaciousness when the shapes are smaller, folding into our selves? This class will explore poses that deeply fold and curve the body, and then investigate how basic postures lead toward more intricate twists, forward extensions and arm balances.


Freeing the Hips and Learning to Sit
Saturday, April 21, 2:30 – 5:00 p.m.

Please no registrations after Friday, April 20.  In order to cultivate breathing practices and meditation, we need to be able to sit – upright and comfortably – for increasing durations of time. This class will begin with a variety of techniques for bringing mobility and stability to the hips. After restorative poses to quiet the nerves, we will explore reclining and seated pranayama.


The Joy of Backbends
Sunday, April 22, 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Backbends are known to cultivate stamina, courage and energy. Yet when done with attention to the back body and the breath, the nerves can remain quiet for a refreshing and joyful experience in these challenging postures.  Learn a variety of approaches that help make backbends calm and doable.
