The Power of the Heart,
A Back Bending & Heart Opening Workshop
Hot Yoga Plus, Elliston
Saturday, February 9th
2:00pm - 4:00pm
Join us for a 2 hour workshop as we explore back bends and heart opening! Back bends are powerful and refreshing poses that have a multitude of benefits! Physically, back bends strengthen the spine and core, open the lungs to receive more breath, and create much needed space throughout the shoulders. Back bends also counter balance many postural issues, releasing tension and guiding the body into alignment. Energetically, back bends can be especially powerful. Back bends open the energetic heart center creating a sense of lightness as the expansive energy of the heart is able to flow more freely. Frequently back bending poses can be emotionally charged and fear can play a role in the resistance to these poses, however when done properly and honestly backbends can have an inspiring, empowering, and uplifting effect! In this workshop, we will break down the fundamentals of safe back bending and refine the more intricate elements of these refreshing poses!
All levels are welcome as modifications will be given.

Meditation and Yoga Workshop

"When you don't go within, you go without." - Yogi Bhajan
In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Yoga can be defined as the restraining of consciousness from noise and false perceptions. These false perceptions are said to be the basis for all of our suffering. They block us from experiencing the Wholeness of our being and from seeing our True Selves. Meditation is the practice where we learn to work with our mind to calm it and to dive deeper into ourselves finding truth, love, and wisdom. Meditation is powerful, beneficial beyond measure, and accessible to all! Just like with asana (postures), meditation takes practice and there are many different techniques you can use to meditate.
In this workshop, we will approach multiple meditation techniques with light-heartedness and practicality to help you find the ones that resonate with you. We will incorporate 10 -15min. asana practices in between each meditation technique allowing us to refresh and practice maintaining a meditative state with movement! Join us for this wonderful evening workshop full of potential for growth, knowledge, and transformation!
This workshop will be accessible to all and beneficial for every level of yoga student.
Bring some paper and a pen for note taking if you would like. Blankets and bolsters will be provided. If you have a favorite meditation cushion feel free to bring it! Dress comfortably and be prepared to practice some asana. Bring a yoga mat, we have them available to rent at studio too. Bring water and snacks if desired.
