Yin and Acupuncture

With Liane Knox & Matthew Ward

Yin yoga stimulates the systems of the body through slow gentle traction and compression. When blood flow is stimulated it can move more freely throughout the body enhancing the therapeutic power of Acupuncture. Join Liane Knox, ERYT200 and Matthew Ward, R. Ac. for this 2 hour workshop to explore the power of combining Yin and Acupuncture.

The benefits of integrating yin yoga with acupuncture are:
• Detoxification
• Decreases stress
• Increases mobility in the ligaments, joints, connective tissues and vital organs
• Reduces inflammation and pain
• Stimulates the lymphatic system
• Increases immunity
• Improves digestion
• Builds bone density

The workshop will start with Liane leading you through a Yin Yoga class, followed by a resting period where Matthew will apply Acupuncture needles to support the vital organs and lastly a long savasana to restore balance. Students can expect to end this workshop feeling a strong sense of ease, balance and vitality.

*Each student will receive a receipt from a licensed Acupuncturist which is eligible for submission to group insurance.

Let Your Backbend Slide

With Ed Isidro

Have some fun with backbending! Backbends are an invigorating part of your asana practice and can build much strength through the core of your body. In this workshop, the aim is to breakdown the fundamentals and alignment of backbends...while we bob our heads to some mellow beats.

Through the course of the workshop, much focus will be spent on effectively moving and lengthening the spine to help unlock backbends. Focus will be spent on properly preparing the body as we progress toward our backbending peak postures.

The focus will be on the following peak postures:
* King Pigeon (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana)
* Fish Pose (Matsyasana)
* Full Wheel (Urdhva Dhanurasana)
** Opportunity for drop backs will also be available.

This workshop is ideal for practitioners who:
* Want to learn fundamentals of backbending
* Wish to incorporate a stronger backbend into their asana practice
* Desire to practice backbends in a controlled environment where they may ask alignment questions

The workshop is open to all levels with modifications available to satisfy both novice and advanced practitioners. Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn is required, but a desire to play would also really help!
