Yoga to the People | New York, NY

WEEKEND OF WORKSHOPS AT YTTP
Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23, 2019
Yoga to the People, St. Marks (map)

Saturday 3:30-5:30pm
LOCKS (AND KEYS) TO ARM BALANCING AND FLOATING
Arm balances and inversions teach us to hone our focus and cultivate our deep inner strength… But strength can be deceiving. Balancing upside-down does not necessarily require chiseled arms or a swollen chest. Rather, the first step to finding stability and lightness in your yoga poses is learning how to manipulate the flow of energy throughout your body.

In this workshop, we will locate and fine tune our awareness of the key bandhas (energetic locks) through meditation and practical exercises. Then, we will put them to use in a series of challenging yet playful arm balances and transitions. You will walk away with tools to achieve sustainable depth and stability in your practice and a knowledge of the gateways to levity.

Sunday 3:30-5:30pm
PURIFICATION PRACTICE: MANTRA, PRANAYAMA, AND KRIYA FOR CLARITY
Yoga, in essence, is a system for purification — purification to reach a clearer understanding of the true self. And asana is merely one limb of the yoga path to cultivate that clarity. Although asana is a powerful practice accessible to all, mantra (devotional chanting), pranayama (breath control), and kriya (purifying exercises) are subtler yet sharper tools to cleanse the mind and heighten our inward sense.

In this workshop, we will explore these three techniques through several variations. There will be no postures in this workshop, and there are no prerequisites to attend apart from a desire to expand your practice and your awareness.

Shala Ananda Yoga | Bucerias, Mexico

WEEKEND IN BUCERIAS with VERONICA LOMBO
Friday, October 25 through Sunday, October 27, 2019
Shala Ananda (map)

Friday PM
CLASSIC 84 ASANAS w/ Henry
In this 2.5-hour class, we will move through a classic sequence of 84 Hatha yoga postures, from which the Ghosh and Bikram yoga lineages descended. Although this class was popularized in a hot room, we will practice at room temperature and allow the body to develop its own internal heat. There are no vinyasas in this sequence. Apart from the opening salutations to the gods, goddesses, sun, and moon, all postures are practiced with static holds.

Saturday AM
HATHA VINYASA w/ Veronica
In this class, we will purify the nervous system with pranayama, energize the body with sun salutations, get grounded and focused with standing balancing postures, and find full range of motion through the spinal column with floor forward folds, backbends, and twists. This class is designed to carry you through the full range of physical and subtle experience — from the dynamic, fun, and challenging opening sequence through the meditative, inward, and revelatory wind-down.
 
Saturday PM
HIPS AND TWISTS: YOGA FOR DIGESTION AND BLOCKAGE RELEASE w/ Henry

Stagnant energy, lethargy, constipation, and depressive moods can often be traced back to blockages in the pelvis and lower abdomen. By moving energy through these areas with discernment and cultivating a heightened sense of awareness, we are able to break the seals that keep us glued in place.
In this workshop, we will move through a cohesively designed series of kriya and asana to provide relief from blockages of all kinds. Then, we will take a close look at the mechanics and alignment of several twisting postures, so that you are better equipped to leverage the rooting strength of your hips and find deep, therapeutic benefit in your twisting practice moving forward.

Sunday AM
HATHA VINYASA w/ Henry

Sunday PM
BACKBENDING FOR HEALTH & JOY w/ Veronica
Backbending postures offer much more in the way of benefits than mere spine strengthening. When practiced with patience and proper mechanics, backbends help to mobilize the entire spinal column and central nervous system.Doing so is the most efficient way to clear energetic blockages and trigger an undeniable sense of euphoria.
In this workshop, you will learn how to access the full range of motion in your spine and open the entire front side body safely and evenly, so that you can tap into your complete
physical sensation, manage and relieve back pain, and learn to trust yourself in moments of vulnerability.
