Use your YCA class passes

Here’s your chance to explore some basic postures and sequences with guidance from a senior Embodyoga® teacher.

There are so may layers of nuance to every yoga posture. And the Embodyoga® movement principles deepen the field of exploration even more. In regular classes there’s often not time to slow down and really explore postures, or stop and ask a teacher a question about something they’ve said. This series of clinics is meant to create that space.

All of these clinics will take place at YCA.

February 24 – Beginning Arm Balances with Onatah Stoll

Arm balances are a fun and challenging aspect of yoga asana that help build balance, strength, and stability. Learn how to approach these postures in a way that harnesses the soft and fluid power that each of us nurtures within the “pit of the belly”, beginning with Chaturanga Dandasana as a basic support for all arm balances. Connect this deep strength through your arms and into the Earth in a way that you can incorporate into your daily life and movement. All levels welcome.

March 3 – Support for Your Wrists with Katherine Tancredi

Many yoga practitioners experience frustration during class because of wrist discomfort. To safely and effectively practice yoga asana in a way that’s safe for our wrists, we need to understand proper alignment and effective supports. Learn how to protect your wrists by learning alignment tips, using props and employing modifications tailored to each student’s particular needs. Suitable for all levels.

April 7 – Beginning Inversions with Onatah Stoll

Getting ourselves upside down is deeply healing and nourishing. Lymph flow improves immune function, and the movement of the venous blood supports circulation, clear thinking, and overall prana flow.  Learn Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand) and Pincha Mayurasana (forearm stand) and their variations in a way that protects the integrity of your spine and maximizes comfort and accessibility in these postures. All levels welcome.

 

May 26 – Modifications and Support for  Knees with Katherine Tancredi

Many yoga practitioners experience frustration during class because of knee discomfort. To safely and effectively practice yoga asana in a way that’s safe for our knees, we need to understand proper alignment and effective supports. Learn how to protect your knees by learning alignment tips, using props and employing modifications tailored to each student’s particular needs. Suitable for all levels.
