CoreWalking with Jonathan FitzGordon
Friday, April 24th, 6:45–8:45p: The Art of Tadasana
Tadasana is the foundation pose of most yoga practices. But how well do you see yourself in Tadasana?
How well do you see yourself as you go about your day?
This workshop will change the way you perceive and feel your body in space. Making simple changes to the way you stand in yoga and in life has a profound effect on your daily life, pain issues and athletic performance.
Saturday, April 25th, 1–4p: Yoga For Hips And Balance
Initiating movement from the core of the body is essential to moving well, healing successfully, and aging gracefully. To do that, we need good tone for all of the muscles in and around the pelvis for strength and balance and fluidity.
This workshop focuses on the pelvic muscles that facilitate balance and healthy movement patterns.
Saturday, April 25th, 5–8p: Psoas Release Party!
The psoas is the most important muscle in the body, acting as the main hip flexor and the engine of walking. A free and happy psoas allows the body to move with peak efficiency and little strain. Issues with the psoas can lead to any number of problems throughout your body—both physical and emotional. Lower back pain and other joint discomfort as well as disturbances to the nervous system can be linked to the psoas.
This is not a yoga class. You will spend the afternoon awakening, learning about, and releasing the psoas and understanding its core function within the body.
Sunday, April 26th, 1–4p: Yoga for Strength and Stability
Moving from the core requires balanced muscle tone and fluid joints, and in this class you will breathe, focus, move, stretch, and balance to create a more solid center. Core abdominal tone improves nearly every pose, allowing us to move with purpose and ease. Strength built on the mat informs your life when you step off of the mat, allowing you to live work and play to your fullest.
This workshop focuses on building a solid center from which healthy movement patterns originate.
