 Upcoming Workshops

Friday, March 2nd, 6:30 - 9:00 pm ~ Meridian Yoga: The Art of Energy Flow
Whitman Wellness Center, Whitman, MA

Stretching the Gall Bladder meridian supports clarity of vision to see ones true direction.

When our meridian energy pathways are blocked, we feel stagnant and out of sorts; when we release the tensions that we store in our bodies, we experience a profound alignment of body, mind and soul. As nature's energy streams through us, the heart begins to sing and we become connected to the universal life force that bridges heaven and earth, sun and moon, and all of nature.

In this workshop we will work with a partner, using gentle pressure, body weight, and skillful touch to open the meridian pathways; from this we will increase our range of motion, perfect our alignment in yoga asanas associated with the fourteen internal organs, and bring lightness and joy to our entire being. A modern stretching method called resistance/PNF stretching will be taught, along with Thai Yoga and shiatsu massage. Meridian Yoga brings the wisdom of an ancient energy system alive, removing barriers to the transforming and healing flow of prana in our body/mind. Feel free to attend alone, or with a friend.

Friday-Sunday ~ Meridian Yoga: The Art of Energy Flow Certification
Whitman Wellness Center, Whitman, MA

Stretching the Gall Bladder meridian supports clarity of vision to see ones true direction.

When our meridian energy pathways are blocked, we feel stagnant and out of sorts; when we release the tensions that we store in our bodies, we experience a profound alignment of body, mind and soul. As nature's energy streams through us, the heart begins to sing and we become connected to the universal life force that bridges heaven and earth, sun and moon, and all of nature.

From yoga asana, to resistance stretching, Chi Gong, to Oriental bodywork, Meridian Yoga artfully blends ancient and modern techniques that activate and balance the body’s meridian pathways, releasing blocked energy and bringing us into a profound connection with life.

You will learn:
• A Meridian Yoga asana practice
• PNF/Resistance Stretching – a modern, safe and effective stretching method
• Partner assists that open the 14 basic meridians
• Hands-on shiatsu and Thai yoga massage techniques that deeply release tension from the body
• Acupressure’s “potent” points for optimal health
• Pranayama (breathing exercises) that enhance life energy

Friday, 6:30-9:00 pm, Saturday / Sunday, 8:30 am – 6:00 pm

Saturday, March 10th, 2:00-4:30 pm, Vinyasa Yoga and Qigong: Flowing into Wholeness
Studio 143, Scituate, MA

When the body flows like running water, it is always renewed, always fresh. This is true freedom.

While yoga has its roots in Indian Vedic scriptures, Qi Gong grew out of the Chinese Taoist pursuit of longevity. In this workshop we will explore the Taoist concept of “effortless flow” through Qi Gong exercises, and then bring the same ease of motion into sequences from Yoga of Energy Flow. While the movements in both forms are graceful and gentle, the effects are powerful, detoxifying the body while increasing strength, flexibility, and peace of mind.
