Yin Yoga at Carrboro Yoga Company

Saturday July 21, 2012 @ 2:00 pm–3:00 pm at Carrboro Yoga Company

This still, quiet style of yoga will open your hips and chest and give you time for introspection. You’ll find deep release in long holds of simple postures on the floor, leading to greater freedom and balance around the pelvis and spine. The poses work the meridians, especially in the connective tissue of the body, and yield an opportunity for mindfulness in the face of shifting experience. Appropriate for all levels of yoga experience.
There will be a video camera in the room for this hour-long class, which will be recorded for YogaVibes.com, but there will be space in the room to set up if you are camera-shy.

Yoga for Athletes: Strength, Flexibility, and Focus

Friday August 31, 2012 @ All Day at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health

I’m very excited to expand my usual Yoga for Athletes weekend workshop at Kripalu into a long-weekend format. The two extra sessions will allow us to add a second strength-building practice and to explore yin yoga together. If you have been thinking about visiting Kripalu, join us! This is sure to be a fantastic time together. The trails are wonderful, and the lake may even be warm enough for a hardy open-water swimmer.

For all levels of athletic or yoga experience; no prior yoga experience required.

Athletes are often turned off by yoga because it seems too hard, too easy, or out of sync with their training. Triathlete, coach, and yoga teacher Sage Rountree demystifies yoga and explains exactly how it fits with training and competition. Yoga’s emphasis on form, focus, and breath translates to increased efficiency and enjoyment in your sport and your life.

This weekend, learn poses to increase your range of motion and flexibility, especially in the hips and hamstrings. Spend time cultivating sport-specific core strength and balance, examine yoga as mental training, and learn how incorporating yoga’s approach to mind-body integration can make you a better athlete. Practicing the poses and techniques taught in this workshop increases your flexibility, core strength, stability, balance, and physical and mental endurance while lowering recovery time and risk of injury.

Weather permitting, we’ll head out for a run one or both mornings, so bring running gear if you would like to join.

Recommended reading Sage Rountree, The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga and The Athlete’s Pocket Guide to Yoga (both from VeloPress).

Yang and Yin Yoga Workshop at Carrboro Yoga

Saturday October 06, 2012 @ 2:00 pm–4:00 pm at Carrboro Yoga Company

Yoga is the union or awareness of two things that seem opposite. Light/dark, warm/cold, energy moving up/energy moving down, breath in/breath out. Come explore two complementary asana practices and cultivate yin and yang energy with us in this all-levels workshop. Yang is a fiery practice, flowing to build heat in the body, and connects the breath with the movement. Yin is a practice that allows us to go within, sit still, and breathe deeply as we notice what rises up from taking our seat in a pose and staying in the pose.

We’ll start with a flow moving through sun salutations, standing balances, and backbends, all leading to some long holds in hip openers and heart openers, and we’ll end with a sweet breath practice before final relaxation.

$20/$15 before 9/29
