After practice, you will emerge feeling deeply relaxed and centered. Research has shown that Yoga Nidra is an important complement to therapy and medical treatment for stress and anxiety related illnesses.
All levels are welcome.
Are you training for a triathlon, marathon, or simply increasing your running or cycling this Fall?
In this workshop, you will learn to complement these activities with the deep stretches in Yin yoga to assist in recovery from joint wear, tight hamstrings, and burned-out quads.
Our connective tissue can shorten and tighten as a result of the repetitive motions in running, cycling, and other exercises. We will practice a sequence specifically designed to work on the connective tissue in the hips, legs, and lower back. Poses will be held for 3-5 minutes with modifications and props provided.
Our Yin practice will be followed by a short restorative practice focused on lower body recovery.
Learn a practice you will want to make a regular part of your training plan. Suitable for beginners.

An essential pose of vinyasa yoga, chaturanga is actually incredibly advanced and complex. Chaturanga dandasana has dubbed a “shoulder shredder” because even slightly sloppy form, over and over, class after class, does an unfortunate number on your tendons and muscles (rotator cuff, pecs and biceps) as well as the shoulder joint itself.
Consider this workshop a guiding beacon that will keep you healthy, happy and safe on the yoga mat for years to come.
Chaturanga clinic is here for you! Receive:
- Personalized feedback on your Chaturanga dandasana
- Steps to refine and build strength toward full, sustainable chaturanga
- Ramped up quality of transitions into and out of chaturanga
- Options for modifying the pose without dumbing it down (or losing out on strength building)
We will also playfully explore the jumpback from crow and uttanasana, and how to decide when you are ready.
Attendees get a PDF summary of some of the strength-building techniques and modifications that we practice together. (So you can continue improving your chaturanga form afterward).
Early Registration, $35 At the door, $45
