 Upcoming Workshops ~ Live Stream on Zoom

Friday December 2nd, 7:15 - 9:30 pm, Healing Touch: Partner Stretching & Thai Yoga Massage
Down Under Yoga, Boston, MA

Partner-assisted stretching increases flexibility while Thai Yoga Massage reduces muscle tension, both enhancing relaxation and stress reduction.

In this workshop we will work with a partner to help lengthen tight muscles using a modern stretching technique called PNF/resistance stretching.

Stretches for the lower and upper body will be taught, complimented with Thai Yoga Massage, an ancient healing art form that combines gentle joint manipulations, assisted yoga postures, and healing touch to remove blocks in the major energy pathways of the body.

Come with a spouse, partner, friend or neighbor. Learn to listen, receive, share and play!  All levels are welcome.

Friday - Sunday, February 10th - 12th ~ Yoga and Qigong: The Dance of Heaven and Earth


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

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

While yoga has its roots in the Vedic scriptures of India, Qigong grew out of the Chinese Taoist pursuit of longevity. Explore the Taoist concept of “effortless flow” through qigong exercises and then bring the same ease of motion into vinyasa yoga sequences. The movements in both forms are graceful and gentle, with powerful effects that detoxify the body as they increase strength, flexibility, and peace of mind.

This in-person workshop focuses on Qigong practices to open the meridians, meditative flow in yoga sequences, breathing exercises to enhance life energy, and concentration techniques for mental clarity.

You will learn:
• Breathing exercises to enhance life energy
• The Eight Brocades, Swimming Dragon, and other Qigong practices to open the meridians
• Meditative flow in yoga asana
• Concentration techniques for mental clarity
• Suggestions for a simple and productive home practice.
