Yin Yoga  for  Chakra Balancing Workshop with Cassie

Yin Yoga for Chakra Balancing Workshop with Cassie

Please join yoga instructor, Cassie DeFrees and myofacial release practitioner, Charlie Kim, on Friday, October 25th, from 6-8pm for a YIN YOGA FOR CHAKRA BALANCING Workshop. When we practice Yin Yoga we’re not only opening up the physical body – we’re also tapping into the energetic body.

Our prana, or life force energy, flows through our body along energy channels – also known as nadis or meridians. These meridians travel through energy centres known as chakras. There are 7 chakras:Root Chakra – Muladhara; Sacral Chakra – Svadhistana; Solar Plexus Chakra – Manipura; Heart Chakra – Anahata; Throat Chakra – Vishudda; Third Eye Chakra – Ajna; Crown Chakra – Sahasrara.

 Our Yin Yoga for Chakra Balancing workshop will work through a sequence of long, deep holds in poses focusing on each energy centre starting from the base of the spine, up to the crown of the head. Each pose will be held for 3–5 minutes and you’ll enjoy a mini meditation in each posture. This will give the physical body time to let go of any built up tension and allow a shift in the energetic body.

We will start to release energetic blockages so that you feel more open, grounded and balanced. The workshop will be held by candlelight, to calm the senses and allow you to focus internally. The room will be cool and inviting, including props consisting of bolsters, blocks, blankets and straps with gentle hands on assists and sprinkled touches of Reiki and Myofacial release to help make your experience comfortable and long lasting. Reiki is a method of stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. 

Plan ahead, clear your calendars and meet Cassie and Charlie on your mat. Friday night Yin at Shine Yoga Studios in Lincoln Center. 

Cost: $35

Arm Balance Workshop with Maria Gapasin
1:00 PM13:00

Arm Balance Workshop with Maria Gapasin

Maria Gapasin joins us for the third time this summer! She has a special two-hour workshop on learning how to transition and improve your arm balances.

Arm balances can be fun and playful. However, in most of our flow style practices we don't get the opportunity to refine or build arm balances and their transitions. Maria will review basic alignment principles and cues. Together we’ll build confidence to take flight through a playful sequence of some of the most common arm balances, such as: crow, side crow, firefly, comfortable bird pose, handstand and their transitions. Some yoga experience is recommended and all levels are encouraged to join in on the fun!

 Cost: $25

Ashtanga Vinyasa Rocket Workshop
1:00 PM13:00

Ashtanga Vinyasa Rocket Workshop

Rocket Yoga is an artful, beautiful and challenging yoga practice that invigorates and strengthens the body. It is a dynamic flow that “gets you there faster” through inclusion of advanced postures such as inversions and arm balances along with Sun Salutations and intelligent sequencing of asanas (postures) to help you achieve greater strength, flexibility and overall balance. The practice of Rocket is all about listening to your body and encourages the “Art of Modification” which allows each student to interpret the sequence as best fits their body. This system brings the energy of both advanced practitioners and beginner yogis into the same room.

 Rocket Yoga was originally developed by Maria’s teacher, the late Larry Schultz. The practice finds a balance between the strict Ashtanga and chaotic vinyasa creating accessible yet challenging sequence for the progressive Yogi.

 In this inspiring 90 minute workshop we will go over the basics of a Rocket practice such as ujai (diaphragmatic) breathing, energy hold (bandhas), eye focus (drishti) along with a variety of postures, their modifications and variations.

 This workshop is available for all levels of students who are willing to sweat, play and open up to endless possibilities both physically and energetically.
