WORKSHOPS

YOGA POSTURE & TRANSITION LABS

What Is & Why Attend a Yoga Lab or Yoga Lab Series?

 

Each lab is one month long and includes a 3 Hour experiential lab with hands on assists and individual focus on postures, transitions and alignment. Due to the special and detailed nature of the lab, we will only be accepting 10 people per lab. Expect this to be a workshop style, non-traditional class setting including, meditation, lecture, doing and observing to see all the different bodies and how that plays a role in how we move and condition our own unique bodies. Each of the additional weeks include either a phone/skype/in person coaching following up with what each person worked on and if the changes are building strength and confidence. Based on the check-in, the remaining coaching sessions will be designed according to the progression you are noticing in your practice and body. Everyone’s will be different depending on their personal reason for attending and personal level of practice (physical or mental).

 

You can choose to attend a single lab or the entire series of labs. These labs have been designed to work the progression of postures based on strength and where you’re at in your own personal practice and welcome to all levels. We will explain the importance of having a grounded and strong base in order to advance postures, should you choose to. Many of us have been practicing for years and are set in a habit of movement that isn’t necessarily helping us, but setting us back. The goal of these labs is to build new healthy movement and breath habits to get mentally and physically stronger in the safest way possible!
