The Pelvic Puzzle
This session will explore the positions of the pelvis, its affect on postural alignment and how it plays a main role on the center of gravity for movement. Anatomically, the pelvis connects the upper and lower body. Energetically and physically, the pelvis is the location of the 2nd chakra (Svadhisthana), and all the organs that create life and eliminate what is not needed or used by
the body. Basic pelvic anatomy will be presented in this class.

Shoulders: Sculpt Your Pose
This session will explore how “sculpting” our shoulder movements and using proper alignment in a yoga practice is adance between effort and surrender, both physically and emotionally. The shoulder is one of the most flexible and mobile joints in the body. Where there is mobility, there is less stability. Learning about your shoulder anatomy and it’s unique design can support healthy movement, optimal strength and help to prevent or heal from shoulder injuries. Energetically, our shoulder is a part of the 4th chakra in the subtle body: Anahata. The shoulder is an extension of our heart center. The area of love, vulnerability and courage. It’s an area that is important to support and protect, as well as express and trust.
These workshops will be held in-person at the Chace Mill.
