Earth Day Restorative Yoga Workshop w/Leslie

Date : April 22, 2017 from 2 - 4pm

Join Leslie for a special Earth Day Restorative practice.  Restorative Yoga is used to help bring balance to your nervous system.  We live in a fast paced environment where we experience stress on any given day.  While there is nothing inherently wrong with stress, living in this  "fight or flight mode"  can eventually lead to exhaustion or illness.   This practice will open up the space for your body to shift gears and enter into rest and digest mode.  The place where all true rest and healing takes place.   With the support of props, stillness, music and touch this practice will leave you feeling more grounded, calmer and relaxed.   

In honour of Earth Day, we will be donating 10% of the proceeds from this workshop to the David Suzuki Foundation. 

Investment : $45

Anatomy Jam w/Sam Booker

Thursdays @ 2:30pm beginning April 20, 2017

Come and geek-out about anatomy and movement with us in a casual, collegial, student-driven environment! These 6 sessions will be themed according to region of the body: the shoulder, scapula and arm; the spine; the pelvis, hip and thigh; the knee, thigh and leg; the leg, ankle and foot. We may start each session with a brief review of the region (or not if the crowd doesn’t feel it’s necessary), and the rest will be based on the questions and queries you bring in about that region as it relates to your personal or teaching practice. 90 minutes of chatting about anatomy and movement: Is there anything you’d rather do on Thursday afternoon? We didn’t think so.

This class is open to Pilates, Yoga and Movement Teachers, and those interested in learning more about anatomy in terms of movement & rehabilitative context. 

Investment $30 or 6 sessions for $150

 

Postural Analysis : Beyond Standing

Date : June 4, 2017 from 11am - 3pm

Beyond standing is about understanding how your clients’ parts work in relationship with each other during movement, not just how they position themselves in relationship to each other in stillness. After spending the previous day looking at the Myofascial meridians and their role in movement, we will be able to better analyze the cause and effect of habitual posture and adaptive shortening/lengthening in order to:

- Assess client abilities and anticipate movement challenges to determine appropriate level of exercise.

- Determine sequencing based on what tissues require release or activation in order to move through sessions with most ideal alignment.

- Understand immediate and lasting effects of injuries and conditions throughout the system, as opposed to the injured part alone.

Myofascial Meridians & Movement Workshop w/Sam Booker

Date : June 3, 2017 from 1 - 5pm

Understand what the myofascia is physiologically and anatomically and what the Myofascial meridians are and where they intersect. What those intersections mean in 3 dimensional movement in terms of their synergistic creation, control and mediation of movement. Applying kinesiological movement analysis concepts to understand how the lines do this.
