Full Spectrum Saturdays

Full Spectrum Saturdays.

A “Full Spectrum” practice means that we’ll cover all categories of poses for a well rounded and satisfying experience. The extended time will allow for a deliberate and rhythmic pace plus depth and discovery.

During this series, we’ll also use the Five Mahabhutas or 5 Great Elements to guide our effort and awareness. When you use the 5 elements to feel into your body, alignment becomes more intuitive and action becomes more organic.

With the 5 Elements, you’ll circumvent the thinking mind and instead of being trapped in right/wrong, good/bad, you’ll gain access to the feeling presence of the body and generate a state of wonder and exploration in your practice.

Curriculum:

Saturdays, 10am-12pm

2/9 - Session 1: Earth - the roots of the body - feet and hands

3/9 - Session 2: Water - free-flowing hips and the current of the low back

3/23 - Session 3: Fire - ignite the abdominals and deep core

4/13 - Session 4: Air - uplift your heart

5/4 - Session 5: Space - expansive breath, liberated body

Day-Long Retreat: Power to The Pelvis

Day-Long Retreat: Power to The Pelvis

Knowledge is power. Reclaim Yours. 

For most of it's history, yoga has been taught primarily by men, with no direct experience of a women's body. Because of this, many of the alignment principles for common postures do not take into consideration the form and function of the female pelvis.

In this daylong retreat, you'll learn about the sacred structure of the female pelvis, how to create more awareness and resilience in the pelvic floor, and how to adjust common poses and alignment principles to better fit a woman's body. 

You’ll have 2 practices with Alison to unlock the power of your pelvis. The afternoon will include special guest teacher Lori Metroka Yu , a physical therapist and pelvic floor specialist.
