Take It to the Next Level: Sankalpa, Yin & Tapas with Liz

January 20, 2018

This will be the first class in our once a month series- Take It to the Next Level.  Join Liz for a one of a kind event to kick off your commitment to yoga as a practice of self-transformation.  Sankalpa is the Sanskrit word for intention.  Yin relates to the spirit of quiet, internal listening, and the state of being.  Tapas is a Sanskrit word that loosely translated means “burning zeal.”  In this class you will create a personal intention and we will move through practice based on this intention.  The Yin and Tapas practices are very similar in that you will hold poses (both standing and on the floor) for longer periods of time (think 5 minutes or more).  Some of these times will feel uncomfortable. Can you stay through the inevitable discomfort?  Can you learn to respond versus react?  Can you bake this intention into your cells through the duration of this class?  This is a unique practice that Liz only offers once per year.  Don’t miss out on the fun!

time: 2-4pm

cost: $20 (free to Inspired Path Members)

Choose the Path, Begin the Journey (Yoga for Beginners) with Lorraine

February 17, 2018

This workshop is designed to settle you into the expectations of our studio, intention setting, breath-initiated movement, and the basic poses used in most yoga flow classes. Hands-on enhancement will be offered to get you started on a path that is safe and meant for your body.

Start your practice comfortably knowing that there is a pose for every body as we leave judgement behind and replace it with confidence and kindness for ourselves.

Take It to the Next Level: Increase the Health of Your Pelvic Floor and Deep Core Muscles with Mary

April 28, 2018 

Have you been practicing mula bandha but not sure if you’re doing it right or overdoing it?  Have you experienced stress incontinence or other indicators of poorer pelvic floor health?  Or as you build your yoga asana practice, do you want to build strength from the inside out?  Pelvic floor and deep core muscles need a balance of strength and flexibility for optimum functioning.  We will practice simple movements, breathing exercises, and visualization to bring greater health and awareness to this vital area of the body. This class is a wonderful adjunct if you are working with a pelvic floor PT.
Suitable for everyone from those new to yoga to seasoned Ashtangis.  Especially suitable if you are preparing for or recovering from pregnancy and childbirth.  This class is part lecture – bring paper and pencil – and part practice.

Take It to the Next Level: Forearm Balance with Kelly

December 2018 

As we move into the dark of winter our energy often wanes.  One of the best ways to raise your energy is through physical practice of yoga.  Even better to raise your energy is going upside down.  Forearm balance is a heart opener and an inversion.  One of the best things you can do to stave off the “winter blues” and turn your holiday season upside down.  Kelly will move you through a specific sequence to heat and prepare the upper body to go upside down.  You will then have time to “play” and experiment with forearm balance under Kelly’s guidance.  Class will close with some gentle stretching and a long savasana.

time: 2-3:30pm
