AVAILABLE WORKSHOPS

THE POWER OF THE HEART: BACK BENDING + HEART OPENING WORKSHOP 

Just as you can practice opening your heart in your thoughts and emotions, you can also experience opening the heart space in the body. AND just as you can practice opening the heart space in the physical body, you can also practice opening your heart in interactions with others. One can help guide the other. Join me in a practice of letting the heart lead. Following a thorough warm-up asana practice, we will explore ways to lengthen the front side of the body, opening the heart, as we balance both strength and surrender in the back side of the body. All levels are welcome as we learn how moving from the heart can enliven our practices, both on and off the mat!

Where: JCC New Orleans Dance Studio

Cost: $20 members / $25 non-members

UNFOLDING THE LOTUS: HIP OPENING WORKSHOP

The stress of everyday life, including the ways in which we move—or don’t move—our bodies, is often found lodged in the tightness and discomfort of our hips. But given the right set of circumstances and a patient approach, the hips will release and open like a blooming flower! Join me for an all-levels practice that starts with a heat building, hip & thigh opening sun salutation sequence to prepare the body for a series of hip openers to increase your range of motion in all directions. We will spend time breaking down and deeply exploring the postures, making possible the release of stuck and suppressed emotions that are often held within our bodies, and in particular, our hips. This workshop is designed to leave you feeling lighter and more free, physically as well as emotionally!
