Friday, April 24th
6pm-8pm Yoga Workshop — Hip Wisdom: Key To Your Treasure Chest For A Lasting Practice –

If you think your hips are locked like a vault door, then this class is for you. If you feel ‘stuck’ in your hip openers, can’t seem to improve them or don’t know where to go, this class is also for you! The body’s multidimensional aspect calls for a much more complex conversation than just talking about ‘tight’ or ‘open’ hips. This class will lead you progressively, through a number of exercises and a thorough sequence, into the complexity of the hips and how to break things down so they’re manageable and applicable to our personal needs. Building up from seated stretches and breathing techniques, flowing slowly through standing poses, until we arrive to our peak poses to deeper understand how to properly rotate the hip joint without involving the knee nor weakening the lower back. Come ready to explore and find some key elements that will bring new understanding to this part of your practice. All levels welcome.

2pm-4pm Yoga Workshop — Inversions: Find Courage, Wisdom, Alignment And Feel Indomitable –

Going upside down is scary, thrilling, frustrating. It requires technique, consistent practice and attention to detail in order to balance freely. I believe anyone has the ability to balance on their hands, forearms or head, when given enough attention to detail, alignment cues, bandha emphasis and mental imagery. Whether you’re starting to invert, you’d like to venture away from the wall but are too scared, or you want to gain more control in your entries, exits, or transitions from/into arm balances, this class will be filled with instruction, exercises, breath work and much more to help you go far and beyond. Gain strength, knowledge, confidence and come out feeling unstoppable. Let’s take flight, shall we? All levels welcome.

4:30pm-6:30pm Yoga Workshop — Ageless Spine: Unveiling The Secrets For A Better Backbend Practice –

If the words ‘intimidating’ or ‘painful’ come to mind when you describe backbends, this class is for you. In this all level workshop, we’ll cover the elements necessary to eradicate physical pain, mental rambling and overall stress that may arise from this family of poses. There’s a better, calm and, yes, comfortable way to approach them without straining your lower back and neck or jamming the shoulders. After a proper warm up, we’ll cover several techniques, tips, exercises to access the thoracic spine, isolate flexors’ mobility and increase shoulder range effortlessly, so we can conquer the issues that come with backbending. Poses like Eka Pada Rajakapotasana I & II, Natarajasana – as well as plenty of variations – will be deconstructed in detail. Throw preconceptions and frustrations out the window, leave refreshed, renovated and with plenty of ideas to incorporate at home! All levels welcome.

Sunday, April 26th
2pm-4pm Yoga Workshop — Detox Toolbox: A Twist Practice To Cleanse Inside Out –

Get ready to purge, eliminate and cleanse body & mind from unnecessary junk. Twists are a great tool to help us do that, they’re incredibly versatile, with lots of possibilities and applications. Whether it’s sitting, standing, doing an arm balance or going upside down, when we add a twist into the mix, it brings a new dimension to our practice, full of subtle elements. Besides the physical benefits of having more range of motion along the spine & torso, twists help cleanse the nervous system, aids the digestive track, facilitates releases, they’re mentally soothing and make us feel awesome afterwards! Come ready to work, invert, balance, have a great time and leave feeling years younger… Some euphoria may arise as a side effect, beware!! All levels welcome.

Meditation Workshop

Thursday, April 23rd, 6:30-8:30pm
Meditation Workshop – Creating happiness
Can we find happiness as a state of being? And how much control do we have to create this state in ourselves? During these meditations we will explore the role of meditation in creating happiness, on how to use the information we gather to give us peace and how to use gratitude to raise our frequency.

Restorative Movement


Saturday, April 25th, 4:30-6:30pm
Restorative Movement – Reclaim Your Breath
Our breath keeps us alive, literally. With time, life, trauma, rules and beliefs we constrict the chest muscles, lose mobility in the abdominal wall and reduce the space in the ribcage. This workshop is designed to reclaim our breath, expand it throughout our bodies and experience what a body where oxygen and energy flows freely feels like.

Restorative Movement Workshops are designed to rewire how the brain communicates with the nervous system. While the exercises are always soft, subtle, slow and pain free, the effects are deep. These workshops must be scheduled at the end of the day, never before another class. Students should rest after these workshops to allow their bodies to integrate the new information.
