Knees at Ease in Every Pose
Friday March 8, 6:00pm – 8:30pm

Learn to correctly and fully straighten the knees, and then to comfortably and fully bend the knees. In both knee extension and knee flexion various props and adapted postures may be used to create space and reduce strain while the knees are retrained for optimal alignment, stability and mobility. 


Moving into Small Forms
Saturday March 9, 10:00am – 12:30pm

Experience space and freedom within small shapes. This class will explore poses that deeply fold and curve the body, using basic postures to lead toward more intricate twists, forward extensions and arm balances.


The Journey Inward
Saturday March 9, 2:30pm – 5:00pm

The path of yoga guides us to turn inward to experience freedom in the body, fullness in the breath, and quietude in the mind. This class will explore the theme of sense withdrawal (Pratyahara) through forward extensions, restorative asanas, and pranayama. 


Supported Backbends
Sunday March 10, 10:00am – 12:30pm

Support can make backbends more doable while also providing a teaching tool to create correct alignment and action. Enjoy a vigorous but approachable back arching class using the support of belts, bolsters, chairs, ropes, and the wall.
