INtro to Asana: Hip and Shoulder Workshop

Sunday October 21, 2018, 2-4 pm
Open Space Yoga Diamond Head location, $30

According to recent health studies, sitting is now turning into the new smoking. In today’s modern Western society, since life has become more luxurious and more accessible by doing less, sitting has made bodies more stagnant and less malleable. By sitting incessantly, the pelvis tilts posteriorly (backwards), which strains hip flexors that connect the femurs (thigh bones) to the thoracic spine (middle back), pulling onto the lumbar spine (lower back) and causing the shoulders to curve anteriorly (forward).

This workshop is a 2-hour Hatha asana practice where students will explore simple but increasingly deepening poses that could assist in opening their hips and shoulders, and realigning and reinvigorating the spine.

No experience is necessary. Beginners and more experienced yoga practitioners alike are welcome to join!

Intro to Asana: Breaking Down Chaturanga

Saturday September 15, 2018, 11 am-1 pm
Open Space Yoga Haleiwa location, $30

Chaturanga dandasana (more commonly referred to as simply chaturanga) is one of the most commonly used — and oftentimes overlooked — poses in the modern yoga asana practice. In this workshop, we will explore and analyze chaturanga — its importance, its more traditional alignment, its many variations, and its usefulness in the flow during the transition into and out of the pose itself.

The workshop will be consisted of a 45-minute hatha yoga asana class, followed by a series of stretches that will help you open your shoulders and hips. The most important and bigger part of the workshop will be to develop your own chaturanga understanding and practice.

No experience is necessary. Beginners and more experienced yoga practitioners alike are welcome to join!

The Heart of Yoga: Introduction to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras

Sunday August 27, 2017, 4:30-6 PM
Open Space Yoga Haleiwa location, $30

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are considered to be the heart and core of yoga philosophy. Take some time to demystify the many translations of the original Sanskrit texts, and embrace the very essence of yoga - whatever style of yoga asana practice each of us has, we are all walking towards the same destination: enlightenment (samadhi).

We will go over who Patanjali was, and what the yoga sutras are and how they could lead us towards enlightenment more gracefully. We will break down the first three sutras within the first chapter (pada), and chant the sutras themselves so that you could introduce them to your own yoga and meditation practice.
