Chakra Series - Workshop
withHeatherCastagnaro at Westboro
Sat, Aug 19, 2017 at 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
This chakra series will be a monthly offering that will focus on one chakra. The subtle body is part of you that you cannot see. This is where our energy flows and it is believed that we have seven main energy centers within the body known as chakras.
By working with each Chakra we have the potential to redirect this energy and create a deeper connection to our yoga practice on and off the mat. Each class will incorporate physical movement (asana), breath (pranayama), intention and other tools that will correspond to the specific chakra chosen for that month.
Feel free to wear colors or bring inspirational objects that correspond to each chakra and represent a positive connection for you.
Time: 1:30 pm- 3:00 pm
Cost: $20 (per class)

Deeper Flow (Workshop)
withNeilTaylor at Westboro
Sun, Aug 20, 2017 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Metrowest yoga will be offering a workshop series dedicated to deepening your understanding of specific poses. This comprehensive series will allow our skilled Teachers to go beyond the scope of a regular class in order to help make sense of difficult to grasp poses. For example, inversions can be challenging, and yes a little scary but we will give you the tools you need to find new strength and perspective in achieving these often challenging poses. Each week one of our Teachers will lead a class geared towards a different pose, tailoring a sequence specifically focused on the pose at hand. Understanding the principles of the poses and how they relate to each other can help clear some of the mystery behind the practice. Strengthen your practice by expanding your knowledge.
Eka Pada Koundinyasana (Pose dedicated to the Sage)
Self Care Sunday is a workshop that Ray Mucci and Alecia Dayger have been teaching monthly in Cambridge for over five years.
The first hour of this class is a vinyasa flow, the second hour is a restorative series, and the class has anywhere from three to five assistants (depending on how many students are practicing). Class is set to soothing music, and the assisting team as well as Ray and Alecia will support you through this practice which will leave you feeling rested and renewed.
