Deeper Flow (Workshop)
withCoteShaw at Westboro
Sun, Jul 9, 2017 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 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.
Chakra Series - Workshop
withHeatherCastagnaro at Worcester
Sun, Jul 16, 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)

Treat yourself to two hours of pure relaxation! Chris Briggs will lead you through a series of simple but profoundly restorative yoga poses. Using props, we will help you find the support you need to fully relax and stay in the pose for 5-10 minutes allowing the body to open and the mind to let go. Eileen will provide Traditional Thai Yoga Massage techniques to help you completely release tension and stress. Thai Yoga Massage is a healing art based on Ayurvedic medicine and yoga. It focuses on balancing the physical and energetic bodies, clearing any blockages that may exist in the meridians. It is a hands-on practice that includes gentle compression, passive movement and stretching.
