Breathe student Melissa Miller will be providing an educational workshop on Essential Oils 101. The theme at this class will be how to support your immune system as we enter the change of seasons. Everyone who attends class will leave with an essential oil immunity roller to use topically to protect from the seasonal threats and maintain a healthy and thriving immune system. Attendees will also be entered into a drawing to win an essential oil diffuser, to experience in their own home the powerful and positive impacts of aromatherapy!

    The breath is a central element to asana practice (and life itself). Because of how the muscles of breathing are integrated into the body's movement, the two are often confused and work against each other. We will discuss and clarify the concept of 80-20 breathing, breaking down how to use the breath in each specific posture. This practice brings powerful integration of the body and breath, allowing the student to calm the mind and focus intently.
     
    Practice the well-known sequence of 26 postures with a new focus. Learn how to breathe in each position to support the body instead of working against it. Learn the complementary functions of the abs and glutes (butt muscles) to control the pelvis and spine, bringing new stability and ease, especially in the standing and balancing postures. Practice will include 2 sets of each posture, plus additional explanations, preparations and exercises.

    Forward and backward bending postures are the gems of an asana practice. They create movement in the spine leading to better posture, circulation, digestion and greater energy. In this all levels class we will explore effective engagement of the abdominal and back muscles (making your postures feel easier!) and learn how the combination of the spinal movements balance the nervous system. You will learn how to adjust your postures based on your current mobility, and leave knowing how to get the most out of your practice.
     
    Additionally we will explore how the postures stimulate the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Put together, forward and backward bends balance the nervous system. This is a gem of Ghosh Yoga!

    An all levels class. Explore the history of Ghosh yoga beginning from its origins in Kolkata, India. Learn how this lineage evolved out of body building and therapy to what is practiced today. You will become familiar with the great students of Bishnu Ghosh and explore concepts such as sequencing, heat, and competition. We will then go on to practice asana as instructed by Bishnu Ghosh himself and his two greatest students: Buddha Bose (1930s) & Dr. Gouri Shankar Mukerji (1940-60s). Their approach to asana practice includes some different posture setups, multiple sets, specific breathing techniques, and long holds.

    Progress beyond beginning practices and concepts with this 3 hour immersion. We will discuss what it means to be an intermediate and advanced yogi, including practice philosophy and how to use the body and mind with more detail. Asana practice work toward Arm Balancing & Inversion, Full Backbending, and Leg Behind the Head. Practice will conclude with Pranayama: breathing exercises that are the next step beyond Asana in a yogi's progress.
     
    This class is in service of dedicated yogis who are longing for deeper practices but don't know where to find them. We will discuss practice principles to cultivate a practice that is advanced AND sustainable, like effort and posture selection.
    We will break down several ways to build the necessary strength to balance on the arms and go upside down. This is often a question of muscular strength and control.

    The asana practice contains all of these elements as well as intermediate postures for the complete body. This practice balances the body and prepares it to safely approach advanced practices like those discussed. Finally, we offer the most advanced practice element of the whole weekend: breathing exercises or Pranayama. The last 20 minutes of class will be spent breathing, a profound shift for yogis who generally practice only asana.
