Choreo-Yoga Class January 18th at Maha Yoga!

Saturday, January 18th, 1:15-2:45pm at Maha Yoga

What to expect:

Choreo-Yoga is a fusion of dance and yoga. Essentially it is a routine using both yoga and dance moves that is choreographed by me to a specific piece of music. I use the music as my inspiration for the movements that I will teach in the class.

The class begins with a yoga warm-up (sun salutations, etc.) to get the body moving. Poses that will be incorporated into the later choreography will be introduced at this time so that students can focus on proper shape, safety, and refinement.

Following the warm-up we will learn the sequence of moves that function as the choreography for the remainder of the class. We will add on bit by bit until we have the whole routine in hand, pausing to do various pieces to the music along the way.

Once the whole sequence has been learned, students will have the opportunity to repeat the choreography again and again until it become more natural in the body. Think less, move more!

And, as with any yoga class, we will end with a sweet savasana so that you can enjoy the peace and calm that all your efforts provide.

It is going to be a blast! I can’t wait. Hope to see you there!

Arm Balancing Workshop

eka pada K II

Sunday, January 5th, 1-3:30pm

In this workshop we will work to establish and refine the fundamental principals of arm balances so that your poses are both safe and strong. Expect a sequence that is demanding and fun, one that will bring you to your edge and offer you the opportunity to grow both mentally and physically. As a class of poses, arm balances ask a lot of us, but in return, when we step up to the challenge, the rewards are worth the effort. All levels welcome!

Cost: $30 by Jan 1st, $40 after

Thursday, December 5th, 5:30-6:30pm at Maha Yoga and Healing Arts, only $7!

Back by popular demand! If you were able to join us for the initial live music class with Dante in October, you know how special this class will be. And if you missed the first one, now is your opportunity to get in on this fantastic experience.

For this class we will be graced by the presence of Dante Bucci, one of the most-recognized Handpan players in the world, for some amazing live music. If you have never heard him play, you can check out his youtube channel to get a sense of what his music sounds like. Also, he will have released his new album by then, so you’ll have a chance to snatch one of those up at the class. I use his songs on my playlists all the time when I teach. To have him play live is a wonderful treat. And, maybe the best part, there is no extra charge for the class. It is still only $7 for a live concert and a great yoga class. What more could you ask for to start of your Thursday night?

Yoga for Runners Workshop

Teagan runners

Sunday, October 13th, 1-3:30pm at Maha Yoga and Healing Arts

Running builds muscle strength and burns fat. It keeps your heart and lungs strong, blood pressure in check and reduces the risk of heart attack. However, runners are all too familiar with pulled muscles and joint pain that accompany training. Running often exaggerates imbalances in the body which can, over time, cause injuries.

A yoga practice will help prevent injuries by increasing your flexibility and bringing balance to your body. It will improve your performance by strengthening your whole body as well as your mental focus. In this 2 ½ hour workshop we will learn poses to increase range of motion, improve flexibility, stretch out your muscles, and relax your mind. We will focus on hamstrings, quadriceps, hips, core strength, and breathing.

During the workshop we will:

  • Break down poses and alignment principles for a safe and effective yoga practice
  • Explore modifications and the use of props
  • Discuss how to strategically incorporate yoga into your training schedule
  • Provide you with a sequence designed specifically for runners

Join Teagan and Lisa to find out how yoga can and will make you a better runner. Yoga will compliment your running to improve performance, help prevent injury, and lead to a more balanced you! $25 by 10/6, $35 after.
