February Newsletter 2017


This is me. Lately, meditation has been the extent of my practice. I am reminded about what yoga really is. Yoga is NOW. We use the physical practice as a way to become present by using our bodies to practice. Yoga can also be sitting and meditating. Yoga can be washing the dishes or going for a walk. As long as we are PRESENT and truly PAYING ATTENTION, that is YOGA.

The GOAL of yoga is to create space where you were once stuck. To become aware of your heart and your deepest desires. To LOVE your body and appreciate your imperfections. To become aware of your mind and the chaos it creates. To remember that your thoughts are NOT your fault. The goal of yoga is to find PEACE within yourself, to be BRAVE and live your TRUTH without asking for permission or offering explanation. The ultimate goal of yoga is to LOVE and ACCEPT yourself unconditionally.

Much of what I have learned about yoga is through my mentor Alex. She has impacted me in so many ways and truly transformed my view on yoga.If you are interested in growing your practice, learning more about the philosophy of yoga, and so much more, I strongly encourage you to sign up for Alex Crow's workshops below

WHY POSE:
Why do we do asana? What are we trying to learn and/or access in these postures? In this lecture/discussion we will look at the philosophy behind a yoga practice and how to bring that consciousness and understanding to the physical practice. This awareness when layered upon the poses makes for a complete practice that can bring about transformation and growth both in the physical body and one's approach to how they live.

THE DEEPEST LAYERS:
The nervous system, skeletal range, and basic biomechanics We will begin by looking at how the nervous system affects the body and it's range of motion. The class will begin with at least an hour long physical asana practice where students will set a baseline of their personal range of motion and skeletal structure both before and after the transition their nervous system into the parasympathetic system. Class will be followed with a lecture and diagnostic lab where we will look at the basic biomechanics of all the joint regions in the body in relation to the most common shapes performed in class and discuss the general amount of range that can be expected out of each joint region and what to do if there is limitations.

FEET, LEGS, KNEES, HIPS, AND SPINE
The hip and spine perform a biomechanical dance that, when understood, allows a wise approach to postures such as Forward Folds, Arm Balances, Hip Openers and Basic Backbends. Class will begin with at least an hour long asana class aimed at learning ones individual skeletal structure and range of motion in the ankle, knee, hip and spine allows students to approach postures with wisdom and can help prevent unnecessary injuries in these areas. We will look at how these joints are affected in standing, seated, and other categories of postures. Class will be followed by a lecture where students will learn about how the hip's limitation and position impact the spine, learn underlying reasons for the range of motion in the hip and how to keep your lower back and SI region safe.

Time: 9:30 am-1:00 pm


FROM THE INSIDE OUT: Embark on a weekend learning about the practice of yoga by looking at the inner workings of yogic philosophy, the body, and the mind so that the practice becomes personal, effective and wise.

WRISTS, ELBOWS, AND SHOULDERS:
Asana can and does injure students' wrists, elbows and shoulders far too often, but it's something that can be avoided. There are some basic skeletal issues that need to be understood in relation to the upper extremities and shoulders as they impact poses where body weight is placed on the hands. We will begin with at least an hour long asana class designed to allow students to explored these regions of their body in both weight bearing and non-weight bearing poses. Class will be followed by a lecture where the anatomy and mechanics of these joint regions will be explored and discussed and students individual range of motion and strength will be looked at as it relates to common postures in class allowing them to learn how to modify and work with wisdom for their own unique physicality.

Time: 2:00-5:00 PM

FROM THE INSIDE OUT: Embark on a weekend learning about the practice of yoga by looking at the inner workings of yogic philosophy, the body, and the mind so that the practice becomes personal, effective and wise.

SHOULDERS AND SPINE:
In a similar fashion to the hip and spine, the shoulder and spine also participate in a partnership that can help strengthen and stabilize those regions preventing injury when functioning properly. Drawing on the information from the earlier modules while adding in newly learned information in this workshop, students will start with an asana practice with the full body in mind and bring all of the pieces together. We will then dissect the shoulder girdle and spine as they relate to inversions and backbends that may have previously been out of reach from an understanding of your own unique structure. We will also look at how twists function within the spine and how to approach them with the underlying layers of the body in mind. At the end of this workshop students will know their own unique body, it's range, and how to work with it with wisdom in any asana class they attend.

FEE
Single Workshop $75
Five workshops $349

Preregister and full payment is required. Non-refundable
