Within the peaceful wilderness deep in Carmel Valley the Tassajara community provides an oasis of calm just waiting to nurture you. The hot springs and cold creek soothe body and heart.

Finding Your True Balance: Join me at “You and the Mat” in Oakland (formerly Piedmont Yoga Studio)

September 9th, 2017

2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Investment: $75/ Early Bird $65 (If paid in full by 8/1)

The focus of this workshop is balance. We’ll first look at three un-balanced positions of the pelvis and experience how each can, over time, create a variety of problems in the feet, knees, shoulders and the neck. Next we’ll apply a series of simple exercises, based on the innovative work of American author and therapist Pete Egoscue, to awaken a more balanced, easeful, and better functioning body. We can then approach both our asana practice and the wider movement demands of daily life more intelligently and with a newfound delight. Re-balancing ourselves in this way runs counter to the barrage of demands often made when performing an asana, and sensitizes us to the subtle yet nonetheless profound healing effects of simple movements. By the end of the workshop we’ll hopefully learn how physical balance can, with practice and patience, lead to psychological balance and the revelation of our true Self and its inseparability from the All.
