Workshops

 Upcoming Workshops ~ Live Stream on Zoom

Saturday, February 13th, 3:00-5:00 pm ~ Valentine's Day Partner Stretching And Shiatsu Massage
A Relaxing Afternoon, Livestream, Down Under Yoga

Partner Assisted Stretching reduces muscle tension, enhances circulation, helps alleviate lower back pain, improves balance and coordination, and increases flexibility in a safe and effective way.

Celebrate the holiday that honors the heart with a friend or partner, as we stretch and open blocked areas of the body.

Partner stretching draws on a modern stretching technique called PNF/resistance stretching, while Shiatsu Massage involves gentle finger and hand pressure, acupressure release points, and comfortable joint manipulations. We will work with simple stretches for the lower and upper body, paying particular attention to areas of tension in lower back, head and neck.

This combination of stretching and gentle massage will reduce physical tension, enhance circulation, help alleviate lower back and neck pain, and increase ones sense of well-being and happiness. At the end of this workshop you will feel more relaxed and energized, guaranteed!

Saturday, March 6th, 3:00-4:30 pm ~ Introduction to Qigong: Flowing into Wholeness
Laughing Dog Yoga, Live Stream

From the base of the mountain, many paths. From the peak, only one moon. ~ Ikkyu, Zen poet

While yoga has its roots in Indian Vedic scriptures, Qigong grew out of the Chinese Taoist pursuit of longevity. In this workshop we will explore the Taoist concept of “effortless flow” through Qigong 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.

You will learn:
• Breathing exercises to enhance life energy
• Qigong exercises to open the meridians
• Meditative flow in yoga sequences
• Concentration techniques for mental clarity

Registration Coming Soon . . .
