Yoga Workshops at Urban Yoga Spa, Seattle, WA

Friday, Mar 29th, 6:30pm-8:30pm
Fearless Inversions

Going upside 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 and head when given enough attention to these poses. Whether you’re starting to discover this family, you want to venture away from the wall but you’re too scared or you want to gain more control in your ‘press ups’ or transitioning in and out of them, this class will be filled with exercises, techniques, tips and much more to help you get ahead and beyond. Gain strength, knowledge, confidence and have a great time in the process. Let’s take flight, shall we?

Saturday, Mar 30th, 9:00am-11:00am
Twist Alchemy

Get ready to purge, cleanse body and mind from unnecessary junk stored and come out rejuvenated and renovated. Twists are a great tool to help us do so and they’re also incredibly versatile, with an enormous amount of possibilities and applications. Whether it’s sitting, standing, doing an arm balance or going upside down, when we throw a spinal twist into the mix, it makes things a lot more interesting. Come prepared to work hard, have a great time and leave feeling years younger. Some euphoria might arise as a side effect, beware!

Saturday, Mar 30th, 12:00am-2:00pm
Potions for Deeper Hip Rotations

Any ‘leg behind the head’ pose IS achievable if we work that external hip rotation con- sistently. Come ready to leave old preconceptions and beliefs behind of ‘no it’s not pos- sible’ or ‘my hips are tight’, and enter a new world where your hips can open like a flower in blossom. This class will set a good foundation so you can take the practice/ tips/ideas home with you and digest them more, deconstruct and explore other alter- natives. Hip openers are thrilling, lively and full of possibilities. Often, we put so much pressure on ourselves, that our hips lock up like a treasure chest. Let’s find the key, explore some together and leave inspired for more!

Sunday, Mar 31st, 9:00am-11:00am
Tip Toeing Into Scorpions

Not your average yoga class, this backbend one will dare to trade into waters you might not do on your own, feel intimidated, lost or simply have never thought of. After a thorough warm up and having covered other backbends, some time will be dedicated to study Scorpions, how to do them safely, properly so we can incorporate them in our personal practice. This class is for all levels and you don’t need an ‘advanced’ practice (whatever that means) to participate. You’ll need, however, an open mind, ready to try and willing to see what happens. Stiffness, or being able to work around our personal difficulties, is a big part of the learning process. You don’t want to miss out on that! Come and explore…

CONTINUOUS EDUCATION INTENSIVE

Sunday, Mar 31st, 12:00pm-1:45pm
Sequencing Backbends Teacher Training

The sequence of the poses in the class is the most powerful tool the yoga teacher has to make a yoga class to be memorable. A well designed sequence will prepare the body for poses that are not available without the proper warm up and preparation. The objective of an optimal yoga sequence is to inspire, prepare and propel the student into areas of his or her practice that were out of reach before. During this training we will cover the main themes, sub-themes and peak poses for each family of postures, we will discuss the correct structure of a yoga class and we will practice with some practical exercises and discussion.

Sunday, Mar 31st, 2:00pm-5:00pm
Adjusting Backbends Teacher Training

Adjustments, assistances, support, are all ways the yoga teacher helps the student express and experience the asana in a deeper way. A well timed adjustment allows the student to experiment first hand how a pose should feel, imprinting its muscle memory and serving as a stepping stone into a better practice. A good adjustment can take a student into places that she cannot get by herself. During this clinic we will learn how to approach your adjustments in a safe and creative manner, so you can practice safely and efficiently, adding more tricks into your yoga teacher skill set.

MEDITATION WORKSHOP

Saturday, Mar 3oth, 2:30pm-5:00pm
Four Meditations to Change Your Life

If you have never meditated, or think that meditation is hard or boring, this workshop will revolutionize the way you look at meditation. We will explore silent meditation and its stress reducing capabilities, we will meet our spirit animals, we will chat with our 4 Inner Personalities and finally we will experience a group energy circle to release stuck emotions. All in all, a life changing experience.
