Build Strength to Support Your Practice
Sunday, March 22nd 2pm -4pm
With Michael Stein
Whether you enjoy yoga, pilates, dance, or running there are certain fundamental groups of muscles that will support and stabilize your body, especially as we move into our forties and fifties. This workshop is designed for active individuals who would like to learn more about how to safely strengthen the deep core muscles as well as the shoulder girdle.When these muscles are toned we not only feel lighter in our practice but we have less risk of injury in the long run.
We will use a variety of movements – pulling from yoga, pilates, and calisthenics – to find the right fit for your unique body.
Michael is the former Director of Ashtanga Yoga of New Paltz and has trained dozens of yoga instructors. You can find many of the training methods on YouTube at “Life begins at 50” https://www.youtube.com/user/maayys
Discover Your Hips
Sunday, March 29th 1pm -3pm
With Denise Hopkins
Are your hips one big mystery to you? There is lots of focus on “opening the hips” in yoga classes. This is important for creating space around the pelvis and freeing lower back tension. However, over stretching can weaken the ligaments and cartilage that support the hips. Learning how to balance flexibility with strength is crucial for supporting our joints and keeping us injury free. In this Forrest yoga class, feel for areas around your hips that are more open, strong, more weak, and tighter. Learn accessible moves to incorporate into your practice that will leave you feeling more grounded yet light.
*Forrest Yoga uses focused intention, deep breathing, abdominal work, and therapeutic moves to help free up emotional back log in the body. Denise has taught Forrest Yoga since 2005 and is a Forrest Yoga Guardian teacher. All levels welcome.
