 Upcoming Workshops ~ Live Stream on Zoom

Saturday, July 9th, 2:00-3:30 pm ~ Kundalini Yoga: The Power of the Breath
In Person and Livestream, Down Under Yoga, Newton, MA

Kapalabhati breathing in Boston yoga teacher training

Breath is life and life is breath. When breath flows, so does life.

Experience harmony, lightness, joy, and a radiant spirit with breathing exercises and inner energy practices drawn from Kundalini Yoga. We will learn how to enhance and extend the breath with pranayama (breathing) exercises, and then channel the heightened pranic energy using bandhas (inner locks) and mudras (ways to enhance mental focus which can include hand gestures). Recommendations for an effective beginner to advanced pranayama home practice will be given. If most of your yoga studies have been about asana, this workshop will round out your practice. The "power of the breath" will help your life as nothing else. Please come with an empty stomach.

Friday, July 29th, 7:15-9:15 pm ~ Partner Assisted Stretching & Shiatsu
Down Under Yoga, Newton, MA

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.

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, along with some elements of Shiatsu Massage (gentle finger and hand pressure, skillful touch, and relaxing joint manipulations.)

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