workshop: ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE - MOVEMENT PATTERNS OF THE UPPER BODY (WITH GLENNA BATSON)

SAT FEB 25 :: 2-4 PM

The Alexander Technique (AT) is a method of body-mind education that helps people identify – and transform – stressful bodily reactions that interfere with natural coordination. Through a simple step-by-step process, you’ll learn to quiet the mind as you move, removing excessive mental interferences that block your ability to move easily and well. You’ll begin to train the kind of embodied attention that results in mental and physical effortlessness. In this way, the Technique is a wonderful complement to yoga.

Certified AT teacher Glenna Batson will offer a systematic approach to the study of human anatomy, primarily through the Alexander lens. Participants will explore basic anatomical regions and their associated natural movement patterns. Through sensory awareness, imagery, and mental focus, you’ll learn to mentally map the anatomical structures as you apply Alexander principles to various asanas. The guided explorations are not ‘exercises’ or ‘templates’ as such, but portals of discovery for bodily flow, resonance, and effortless support. 

Each workshop is designed to align the physical body with the collective universal mind, where effortless consciousness gives rise to natural coordination and action and harmony in living. Through applying the Alexander Technique to yoga, you’ll more readily close the gap between nature and nurture.

This workshop is open to all yoga practitioners and trainees, dancers and movement specialists-teachers, and anyone who wishes to understand their body at a deeper level of embodied consciousness in movement.

workshop: back bends - practicing from the heart

saturday march 11 :: 2-4 PM

Back bends support a healthy heart. Many yoga students miss out on the benefits of powerful back bends, because they are afraid of getting hurt. This stands to reason, as opening the front of the body releases lots of energy that can build up when we protect ourselves by armoring the loving heart.

This fun 2 hour 'playshop' will equip you with accurate anatomical information about the spine, and its connection to the physical, mental and energetic exuberant expression of the heart.

After a warm up Asana practice focusing on strength and finding center, we will explore various forms of back bends, including Ustrasana, Urdhva Dhanurasana and Pincha Mayurasana.

It is best that all students have had a consistent yoga practice for at least one year when participating. If you suffer from spine injuries, or have blood pressure issues, please make sure to confer with your doctor before participating.

WORKSHOP: DEEP LISTENING - DREAM INCUBATION (WITH LINDSAY COOPER MCKENZIE)

SUN MAR 19 :: 1-3 PM

What do you hear in your dreams? Dreams contain valuable information about our emotional landscape, connections with ancestors, and answers we are seeking. 

Deep Listening, developed by composer Pauline Oliveros, helps us explore the difference between involuntary hearing and the voluntary, selective nature of listening. 

In this workshop, guided by Lindsay, a certified Deep Listening facilitator, we relax into dream space using Deep Listening techniques, and create a fertile environment to receive and remember dream information. Upon returning to waking life, we record our dreams, or if sleep did not arrive, our thoughts and insights. Through recording and sharing, we accumulate dream records and a better sense of ourselves. We make requests of our dreams and incubate healing in specific ways.

Our dreaming state affects our waking state. Come rest, heal and dream. Please bring additional comfort items such as pillows and eye masks as desired.  

DATES are MARCH 19 & APRIL 23. YOU CAN DROP INTO ONE or both SESSIONS.
