With long, meditative holds in the style of Yin Yoga, we will focus on opening new space in hips and spine, while cultivating stillness and presence of mind. Set in an ethereal soundscape of singing bowls and gongs, this practice weaves together sound, breath and Yin philosophy to facilitate a sensory-rich inward journey. A complimentary practice to the more active, heat building forms of yoga and exercise. Give your nervous system a chance to rest and reset. Class finishes in an extended, sound-bathed Savasana.
Align Your Practice, Balance Your Body:
Using Yoga to Be Pain & Injury Free
INSTRUCTOR: Meghan Robinson
DATE & TIME: Sunday, October 26th, 1-3:30pm
COST: $35 — $30 early bird before October 19th!
Yoga is not only a great way to keep our bodies healthy, flexible and strong, but also a tool for self-healing. This workshop is for anyone who feels discomfort during their yoga practice, is looking to heal or prevent injuries, or wants to therapeutically enhance or deepen their practice safely. From the ground up we will explore and correct common postural misalignments that lead to injury. Typically, accidental injuries happen due to a misunderstanding of our own body structure; the way it moves, the way it is built, and the correct way to evolve it. Understanding the relationship between muscles and movement actually allows the brain to consciously become more aware of the body it is connected to, which in turn flourishes the capacity of our ability to move and feel – allowing us to extend beyond. It’s important to not just move, but to be mindful of the movement. By finding our bodies optimal alignment, we can increase the benefits of our yoga practice and daily life. Mindful movement is the key to attaining optimal alignment, as well as maintaining it.
This workshop will include a slower paced asana practice, allowing time and space for questions to arise, conversations to be had, and lessons to be learned.

Meghan’s BIO: When I teach I let go as much as possible so I may be an open channel for creative energy to pass through.
Every student is everyone’s teacher so I plug my heart into everyone and do my best to translate the teachings which present themselves in the moment. I believe it’s not all up to me. Like any recipe, there must be just the right amount of all the ingredients to produce epic flavor. When I teach I mix my given ingredients well with all other unpredictable and delicious ingredients to co-create with the playful universe and be a part of something grand.
I never know what is going to happen.
And if I attempt to know too much, something is lost. I love life and food in raw true form. Much fear has brought me to where I am, so I encourage all sides of everyone to be welcomed, honored and faced. For fears, if faced, are like really good manure for the soul.
I am SO grateful to all my teachers,
especially Steve Merkley, Paige Faraci, Chris Chavez, and everyone I have
