Cultivating the Core with Natasha Rizopoulos . Sat, May 17, 2014 at 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

YogaBalance Master Instructor Series

Core stability is a key ingredient to a healthy asana practice. But what is the Core and how do we strengthen it? Join internationally acclaimed Natasha Rizopoulos for this workshop that will help you illuminate and activate this muscle group which is so important in our Yoga practice.

We’ll begin with a review of the key muscles that create steadiness at the center. Then we’ll put theory into practice in a sequence that will bring intelligence and tone to the muscles that support your torso and pelvis. We’ll examine poses and transitions that you can incorporate into your regular practice and explore how transformative this work can be, in terms of asana, posture and sense of Self.

As a former ballet dancer, Natasha knew she had come home when she discovered Yoga in her 20s. That moment of recognition and delight continues to inspire her teaching to this day. Now a Senior Teacher with YogaWorks and Down Under Yoga, and a writer, teacher, and DVD instructor for Yoga Journal, Natasha is known world-wide for her ability to communicate the essence of sophisticated postures and ideas in ways that have a transformative effect upon one’s understanding of Yoga. A dedicated Ashtanga practitioner for many years, she is equally captivated by the precision of the Iyengar system. These two traditions inform her teaching, creating a dynamic and rigorous blend of intelligently sequenced and aligned Vinyasa Flow.

Fee: $45 per person. Register before Saturday, May 10 and pay just $40. Continuing Education Credit certificates for Registered Yoga Teachers with Yoga Alliance will be available for this workshop.

This enrollment runs from Wed Jun 4, 2014 - Wed Jul 9, 2014
This six-week workshop is designed especially for the pregnant practitioner. You will learn breathing and focusing techniques that will help you to relax during pregnancy and childbirth. You will practice postures that will help to:

• Create more opening in the hips and abdominal region, which will help make space for your baby;
• Alleviate tension in the back, neck and shoulders;
• Create more openness in the chest; and
• Increase circulation to help prevent swelling in the feet and ankles.

As your body changes with pregnancy, so will your yoga practice. We will modify poses based on which trimester you are in and how your are feeling. Most importantly, this class will honor your mother's intuition, reinforce your body awareness and improve your ability to practice self care during pregnancy and into motherhood. This class is also appropriate for post natal students.

$95 for the full six-week session. Register before Wednesday, May 28 and pay just $90!
