Sweet & Sweaty Flow

Sweet & Sweaty Flow with Jennifer Triassi
Friday, September 12, 2014 from 10:00am to 12:30pm

Begin to stoke your inner flame (agni) with Jennifer Triassi through Sweet & Sweaty Flow. Jennifer will guide you through a dyanmic series of strong standing sequences and core work, moving into deep hip openers to clear the pelvis. Practice will flow into a variety of twists to wring out the internal organs, awakening and renewing the digestive system, and inversions to stimulate the flushing of the lymphatic system. This intermediate/advanced practice will be deeply nurturing and cleansing. Modified and advanced variations of poses will be offered.

 This workshop is a part of our Advanced Teacher Training Program and continuing education credits are available for teachers of yoga.

Yoga & Fertility: Tools for Healing & Wholeness


Yoga & Fertility: Tools for Healing and Wholeness Series with Angelyn Shapiro
Wednesdays from 9/10/14 to 10/1/14, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Tranquil Space Dupont Circle.

Approximately 7.3 million women of childbearing age in the United States are unable to become – or stay – pregnant. This diagnosis can be devastating, and pursuing pregnancy – whether through conventional Western medicine or alternative means – can create additional emotional, physical, and financial stress. While yoga cannot change one’s circumstances or guarantee fertility, the practice offers valuable tools for women facing these challenges. In this workshop, we will explore how asana, pranayama, and swadhyaya can promote healing, encourage compassion toward one’s self and circumstances, and contribute to building a positive narrative that supports women as they move forward on their unique path.

Not All Who Wander Are Lost: Yoga for Hikers

Not All Who Wander Are Lost: Yoga for Hikers with Beatriz Prieto Oramas
Saturday, September 21, 2014 from 9:30am to 1:00pm

Hiking, like yoga, is an excellent exercise for your body and mind. Spending time in nature is a true stress-relieving and soul-satisfying experience filled with peaceful views, fresh air, and the sounds and smells of our earth. Whether you are new to hiking or an experienced hiker, join us for a short hike in Rock Creek Park and learn how yoga can help prepare your body for the trail, and recover from it.

This 3.5 hour workshop includes breath practice, a short pre-hiking yoga practice, a 2-hour hike in Rock Creek Park (aprox), a post-hiking yoga practice, and a restorative practice. During the yoga practice we will target hikers’ hot spots: shoulders and upper back, lower back, hips, hamstrings and quads, and of course, ankles and feet. There will be time for exchange of experiences and for swapping tips, connecting with other hikers, and sharing tea and (of course!) granola. For the hike please bring appropriate footwear, clothing and a backpack with water and a snack. For our yoga practice bring your mat (or rent one at the studio for $2), a water bottle, a hand towel and any questions you may have.

Peaks of Possibility

Jennifer Triassi_4
“Peaks” of Possibility with Jennifer Triassi
Saturday, September 13, 2014 from 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Explore how to take your students “higher” in their practice by building to peaks and working through tricky transitions. Designed for yoga teachers, this workshop will build on key sequencing principles:

  • Selecting challenging peak poses
  • The stages of building to peaks (kramas)
  • The art of creating intelligent sequences (vinyasa)

Learn how to prepare the body to practice these poses safely and effectively. Discover where asana may fall into a class outline, while building in appropriate preparatory poses and sequences. This workshop will include small group work and evolve into mini-classes featuring peak poses, complete with modifications for various levels of practice. All teachers of yoga are welcome.
