Spring Cleanse

with Daniel Max

Spring is the season of rebirth. For thousands of years, practicing yogis have chosen this season to focus on cleansing the body. Yoga postures, drinking water, and mindful healthy eating all help to restore and maintain the body. The spring detox is a focused opportunity to deep clean by extracting toxins from the liver, intestine and blood stream.

Join this 7-day guided spring cleanse and explore the unique benefits of a plant-based diet. We will meet as a group three times. The first meeting is 2 days before the start of your cleanse. In this meeting we review how the cleanse works, why it works, and what we will do. The second two meetings occur during the cleanse. These sessions are intended to provide support, answers to your questions and supply you with an understanding of this process. Using a food based cleansing approach (no products needed!) gives participants a viable platform for healthy eating moving forward.

4/26 Sun. 12:45pm- 1:45pm (+ free 11:15am yoga)

Yin Yoga Teacher Training

with Joe Barnett

Weekend One: April 24th -26th
Weekend Two: May 1st – 3rd

What is Yin Yoga?

The practice of Yin Yoga attends to the body’s connective tissue as well as to muscle. In Yin, we hold a pose for 3-7 minutes, with the aid of props or other supports to keep it comfortable. This allows the muscles to relax and the deeper layers of connective tissue, surrounding our muscles and joints, to therapeutically stretch, stimulate and strengthen.

The alignment is functional and organic: We listen to our bodies and lead ourselves into the shape that follows the natural contours of our spine, pelvis and hips.

The Training:
An Introduction to Teaching a Practice of Surrender

In this training, we will analyze, observe and practice all of these elements of Yin Yoga in depth. We will study the anatomy of bones, schematics of muscle lines and their corresponding meridians. Expect an interactive, hands-on study of each other with anatomical range of motion (ROM). The study culminates in a truer understanding of the the infinite variety of human bodies and an understanding of why every posture should be modified to the individual. We’ll cover the basic techniques to help guide each Yin Yoga student with their unique skeletal structures into the appropriate asana for them.

Topics include:

- Interactive hands-on study of anatomy
- Exploration of Yin postures, their variations and modifications
- Understanding sensation: Tension vs Compression, Muscle vs Fascia, Physical vs Subtle Energy
- Sequencing for a Yin class
- Assisting and adjusting in Yin Yoga
- Communication: When to listen/observe, when to speak/lead
- The Subtle Body: Chakras/Meridians and the Water Channels of the Body.

Hours of Each Weekend:

Friday, 6pm – 9pm
Saturday, 11am – 7pm (with 1 hour lunch break)
Sunday, 11:30 – 530 (with 1 hour lunch break)

Price:

$500 Before April 1st, $550 thereafter
