Body Sighting and Hands On Adjustments, 1-4 PM (teachers/ serious students): Students process information through sight, sound, and touch. To that end, good teachers demonstrate the poses beautifully. Excellent teachers articulate clear cues and instructions. Great teachers add precise hands on corrections. But in order to properly help someone, a teacher must develop the skills to see where, when, and how the adjustment needs to be made. Today’s hands on session will boost your confidence about recognizing what to do and being able to do it. You will leave with a better sense of sequencing, a keener eye that sees misalignments, and a creative ability to transmit what you now know.

Standing Poses and Grounding, 10 AM-1 PM (public): Standing poses are one of the basic categories of yoga asanas. They teach flexion, extension, rotation, and inversion. Because most students are tight in the corners and weak in the core, standing poses open the shoulders and hips while strengthening and toning the abdominals. Psychologically, standing poses ground the anatomy. They teach you how to perform yoga poses with vigor and yet be mentally composed at the same time.

Restorative Poses and the Immune System, 3-6 PM (public): Yoga states facts and then gives techniques and how to embody them. Psycho-neuro-immunology is the buzz word in science today.
