Upcoming Workshops

June 14th-16th, Partner Stretching and Thai Yoga Massage Immersion Training,
Down Under Yoga, Newton MA

We embark on a journey to unlock the body’s energy pathways using gentle pressure, body weight application, and skillful touch. Working with a partner, we will enhance our range of motion and refine our alignment in yoga asanas associated with the fourteen meridians of Chinese medicine. Discover the transformative potential of PNF Resistance Stretching, a modern method designed to enhance flexibility safely and effectively. This will be complemented with hands-on Shiatsu and Thai yoga massage techniques to open blocked areas and harmonize the flow of energy in the body.

An assisted stretch for the Stomach Meridian, which is associated with the quadricep muscles on the front of the thigh.

As stored tensions dissipate, a profound alignment of body, mind, and soul emerges. Nature's energy streams through us, and the heart begins to sing; we become connected to the universal life force that bridges heaven and earth, sun and moon, and all of nature.

In this immersive experience, you will learn:
• Yoga postures tailored to activate the 14 acupuncture meridians
• PNF Resistance Stretching: a contemporary, secure, and potent stretching methodology
• Asian bodywork techniques drawn from Shiatsu and Thai Yoga Massage
• Pranayama (breathing exercises) to activate and channel prana, the life force within.

All participants will receive a PDF manual, & Yoga Alliance CEU credits will be available.

Cost: $295
Friday 7:00-9:30 pm
Saturday 2:00-9:00 pm
Sunday 2:00-7:30 pm

Sunday, June 23rd, 10:00 am-12:30 pm, Yoga and Qigong: The Dance of Heaven and Earth
Summer Solstice Practice, Hingham, MA

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

Explore the Taoist concept of “effortless flow” through Qigong exercises and then bring the same ease of motion into Yoga of Energy Flow yoga sequences. This immersion focuses on breathing exercises to enhance life energy, qigong practices to open the meridians, meditative flow in yoga sequences, and concentration techniques for mental clarity.
While yoga has its roots in the Vedic scriptures of India, Qigong grew out of the Chinese Taoist pursuit of longevity. 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.

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

Place: 222 North St. Hingham, MA 02043 ~ 2nd Floor
Time: 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Cost: $40

Saturday, July 13th, 2:00 - 4:30 pm, Healing Touch: Partner Stretching & Thai Yoga Massage
Centerville Yoga, Centerville, MA
 

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

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

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

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