Yin 'On The Rocks'
Limited Capacity seats available

Yin Yoga is quiet, subtle, and deep. Its physical purpose is to work beneath the muscle tissue delving into our connective tissues, ligaments, joints, bones, cartilage, and the deepest facial networks in the body. Emotionally, it's one hell of a release! This great transformative system coupled with a charged opening sequence to get the body hot and juicy, is the perfect complement to old and new, hard and soft, slow and fast, yin and yang.

Mostly asana.

Hip Openers, Twists, and Forward Bends
Limited Capacity seats available

Mobilizing and strengthening the hips is critical for a stable pelvis and emotional equanimity. Opening the hips enhances the sitting position, which in turn helps with the stability of the foundation for twists. Twists release the spine, thereby freeing it for forward bends. Aadil will progressively teach hip openers to seated twists to bring the vital force from the pelvis up towards the heart, and end in forward bends to soothe the nerves and calm the intellect.

Twist and Cleanse
Limited Capacity seats available

Twists are an amazing group of poses that can be practiced in a variety of positions with multiple effects. By awakening the mid and upper back, they are powerful tools for preparing us for backbends and inversions. They are also wonderful counter poses that provide a cooling and neutralizing effect on the body and mind. In this workshop, we will explore the full range of twists—from standing, sitting, and supine, with special attention on their unique healing powers to increase awareness and mobility in the thoracic spine area. With their tremendous ability to heat and cool the body, twists are essential for detoxification and renewal.

Anahata Chakra Flow: When Love Leads, Peace Is Inevitable
Limited Capacity seats available

This class addresses the source of where we love—through our bodies and our expressions of service in the world. Through a gentle vinyasa flow sequence focusing on backbends, forward folds, and hip openers, we will address the issues of the fourth chakra and how they play into our realm of loving. Seane will create an experience that will allow you to reflect inwardly on any resistance that may be holding you back from living with an open heart, allowing you to instead be in the mystery of life—in all of its expressions, so we can stand powerfully in this journey, with gratitude, forgiveness, reconciliation, understanding, and peace of mind. Join Seane and participate in the opportunity to shift your resistance into surrender, your judgment into compassion, and most certainly your fear into faith. All levels.

Practice and discussion.

Calling all yogis who dislike backbends (but secretly want to enjoy them)! We all deserve happiness in our pursuit of backbends, and this workshop is here to grant you those rights. Backbends can be glorious poses when done correctly. They open the heart, shoulders, and idea of what is possible.
