Join John Vitarelli at Dhyana Yoga Rittenhouse this Saturday for ‘Hands to Earth: Hand-Balancing & Inversions!

The Vinyasa practice is a process. It is a relationship with our Self that develops over time with care and nurturing, much like growing a tender plant from a small seed. We place oursleves on our mats each day like we might place a seed in soil, tend to that seed so that it will grow, and provide it with water and sunshine (our tears and our laughter) as we cultivate asana. Placing our hands to the Earth establishes our connection to where we came from, and reminds us we still have room to grow.

In this workshop, John will thread his love for practice throughout while giving you insignts into often practiced (but not often fully explanined) poses such as chatturanga, upward facing dog, and downward facing dog that will keep you flowing safely, and then move into preparation poses that will plant the seeds you need to place your hands on the Earth and your feet in the air, while developing a trusting relationship with inversions! You will find that the lightness inversions bring is accessible to anyone, that they are tools for dispelling fear, and that they help you to refine your experience of a complete Vinyasa practice. All levels welcome!

Chicago, IL

Friday, July 13th – Sunday, July 15th

Join Amber Cook for a series of Chakra workshops this weekend at Moksha Yoga!

Like the energy that flows through our bodies, this workshop will start from the ground up explaining the ancient methodology of the Chakras which lie within the body. Often misunderstood in our Western context, this workshop aims to shed light and understanding on the true meanings, functions, and roles of each of the seven Chakras. Moving from the center outward, the ultimate goal of this workshop is to provide students with the tools they need in order to incorporate knowledge of these energy fields into their own physical and spiritual practice.

Saturday, July 14th

Join Taylor Flynn and Chris Chen for a Sun Salutation workshop at Katonah Yoga NYC!

Whether you consider yourself a sun god/goddess or run for cover at the thought of a sun salutation, we will deconstruct and reassemble this foundational practice to find freedom, fluidity and ease. By breaking down both the musculoskeletal and energetic aspects of the vinyasa, we will  work to clarify the asanas and transitionary spaces between- it is with clear, efficient, and intent form, that the flow actually serves us and offers the experience of connection we seek. We will offer a variety of exercises and techniques, modifications and additional options, discuss how the parts connect in a wholistic way, and explore the difference between isolated tension vs harmonic tone throughout the body.
