Yoga Workshop Series: Deepening Your Yoga Practice

Deepen your yoga practice with this fall workshop series consisting of three separate workshops. Register for one, two, or all three yoga themed events. Exclusive for Healthplex members, this series will focus on a variety of yoga topics including yoga

poses and kindness meditation, yoga props to ease into your practice, and finishing with our flow based all levels workshop.

Loving Kindness Intensive/Workshop - October 9, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

This 2 hour workshop combines Yoga Poses and Loving Kindness Meditation. You will be guided through poses that emphasize opening the Heart Center; including shoulder openers and back bends that gradually and gently, prepare your body, mind, and spirit for the guided meditation practice. Instructed by Janice Trevisani, E-RYT 500 and Certified Empowered Yoga Meditation Teacher.

Using Props to Ease into your Yoga Practice - November 12, 1:00-3:00 p.m.

This workshop will help provide you a better understanding of the props that are available to you in the yoga studio. We will begin to see how props can be used as extensions of our limbs and let us go deeper into poses as well as provide stability. We will use blocks and straps to help us open up our shoulders and hamstrings and so much more! This workshop will allow us to see the many benefits of using props in our daily practice. The class will end with a series of restorative poses where we will use bolsters and blankets to gently help us release and surrender. Instructed by Jenn Walsh 200 RYT. Trained at Enso Studio in Media, PA. Certification in Yoga for Trauma and Addiction Through Transformation Yoga Project.

Yoga Wall Workshop - December 4, 1:00-3:00 p.m.

In this flow based All Levels Workshop, we will explore asanas using the wall. The wall will increase stability, enhance your poses, and add a new dimension to your practice. It is thought, students will also have a clearer understanding of proper alignment. Students should have prior yoga experience.
