The Workshops

Saturday Session 1: Core Control

It is easy to think of “core work” as something that resembles an old pilates VHS that you often do in the beginning of every class to set the tone. While this may help you get the energy going it doesn’t give us much application as to how this helps us move and transition in the flow of a vinyasa practice. In this session, we will learn how to effectively use our core to generate the power needed to help us move from pose to pose with fluidity. Learn to breathe properly, build strength in deep spinal flexion, and create length through the back body to support each effort along the way.

Saturday Session 2: Circling the Spine

Backbends are the physical reset our bodies need from modern life. They are beautifully complex poses filled with a wide variety of physical variables and spiritual connection that can be a portal to deeper personal awareness or constant confusion. In this workshop, we will use the Awakening Yoga system to help you understand how to circle through the spine and work with your current condition to create a sustainable back bend practice that will leave you feeling stable and supported every step of the way.

Sunday Session 1: Modern Mobility

Bring balance, awareness, and functionality to your yoga practice through this fun targeted mobility practice. Using a unique method developed working with students in one-on-one over the years, this practice is designed to help you create a bridge between your current flexibility and active range of motion. Learn science-backed methods for getting your body moving to stay healthy while feeling free to explore every step of the way.

Sunday Session 2: A Complete Practice

Movement. Breath. Stillness. Centering. This yoga practice will give you the opportunity to explore many sides of yourself as we balance classic Awakening Yoga sequences with traditional asana, powerful breath work, and meditation to leave you in a state of deep personal connection. Feel the energetic shifts come in waves in this unique session that will bring a sense of exploration to the familiar to open your mind for all that is possible. Come as you are, leave with a sense of peace in your being.
